My family loves it. Our year ends at Black River. The food is cooked for you, the kids can do their thing, the adults can do their thing. Planned activities at night. If you've been, you'll be back. If you didn't like it, oh well... we won't miss ya.
My husband went to Black River Lodge as a kid in the late 50's and we have been going with our children (now adults) for 18 years and WE LOVE IT! The people are very friendly, many fun activities, beautiful river for floating or fishing, great family style meals, air conditioned cabins, swimming pool, tennis courts, miniature golf, playground for children, WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR? You never have to leave the lodge and it is very safe for your children. It is the highlight of our summer, when we leave we can't wait to go back the following year. The negative reviews must have confused the lodge with another business. Everyone who goes there has a great time and loves it, that is why we all return and have been going back for many, many years.
My family has been going to brl for over 25 years. We love it. Nothing compares to it. Everyone is so friendly and they plan great activities to get your whole family involved. It's a great place for kids and adults.
The two people who gave negative reviews must have BRL confused with another "lodge" on the black river. The actual Black River Lodge is nothing like what they said. The owners, staff, and those that stay there are wonderful and kind people. The cabins are air conditioned, clean, and comfortable. We have been going for 40 years, why would we keep going back year after year if we did not love it! My kids actually count the days until we return each year. They have been planning their "talent" for the talent show for months. It is a great and affordable family vacation. If my kids would have to choose between BRL and an exotic vacation, they would choose BRL!!!
My extended family has been going to BRL for 40 years, and it is, in all of our hearts, nothing short of god-like. Our family is brought together by this experience year after year. I have traveled all over the world, and this place is still by far my favorite. Beautiful, fun, relaxing--and the rest of the guests have, over the years, become an additional extended family. Beware of one thing--if you bring your kids here, they will love it so much that you will have to be prepared to come again. I just returned from my 26th year in a row, and now i'm back in New York City, still dreaming about it.
i love it so much.iv'e been going every year since i was 2.my cousins go the same week we do,the first week of august.i's so fun you can do every thing there,theres so many things to do i can't even name all of them. I LOVE BRL!!!!!!!!
ANYONE WHO WORRIES ABOUT THE ROOMS AT BLACK RIVER LODGE ARE EXACTLY THE TYPE OF PEOPLE WHO WE DON'T WANT AT BLACK RIVER LODGE.THEY MUST NOT GO TO THE RIVER BECAUSE THERE ARE SNAKES AND BUGS...GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!THIS PLACE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST PLACES ON EARTH.THE OWNERS,THE STAFF, THE RIVER, EVERYTHING IS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!
The staff at black river lodge is rude, I wouldn't feed a died dog the food they serve, and me room look as if it hadn't been cleaned sence the year before. I sugest the you sleep in your car before you sleep in a bed a Black River lodge!
I love the people, very responsive and attend to your every need. The accommodations are just enough clean bedding and shower - I'm not in my cabin very much at all.
I love the food they serve in the main hall - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pizza is available at the game room to those that don't care for the meal.
Nature watching and tubing down the black river just outside my door are my favorite things to do. Fishing is great there if you like to do that.
My favorite place to be if I'm going to "rough-it" without camping.
