Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
February 19 Quiet Get Away by VinnieWv
I have a boat slip on the lake and rent cabins for vacationing. Nice and clean cabins with nice play ground and walking trails. Several people around the marina come as far away from Pittsburgh and Ohio just to boat on Beautiful Tygart Lake.
May 31 Great Scenery, Poor Service
Scenery is beautiful, and cabins/lodge are clean. Affordable. However, staff not knowledgeable about events and can seem unpleasant. Had two very poor and expensive meals at the lodge restaurant. Very hit or miss.
May 20 An excellent get-a-way by Frequent visitor
Beautiful, charming, romantic. Great view of lake, nice rooms, great restaurant, pleasant staff. Nice hiking trails and view of dam.
