A Great Place to get away with family.

  • 5 of 5

20 members of our family, ranging from 19 months to 76 years old...stayed 3 nights at Hawkins Ridge Lodge. Going in with the understanding that this is a hunting lodge and is rented as a vacation home when hunting is out of season....helps on understand the set up. We enjoyed the lodge...enjoyed swimming and fishing. We enjoyed seeing all the exotic animals right in the from yard so to speak. Mr. Hawkins, his family and staff were a pleasure to work with. They checked on us regularly and made sure we had all we needed for a great weekend. The playground is so much more than pictures show...and a new separate game room bldg was great! I recommend this spot for large families...just remember it is a hunting lodge and is set up for that. Bedding...is a big deal to me...I think I slept better those 2 nights than in a long time! Nothing fancy but sure was comfy! Clean, clean, clean facilities!

Wonderful place to visit

  • 5 of 5

Hawkins Ridge Lodge, Craig Hawkins (owner) and his son Jake were amazing. The property was beautiful, the lodge was clean and very spacious for all 18 of us. All the couples had their own separate oasis, we LOVED that the 8 kids were on the other side of the lodge where you couldn't hear them. The wonderful industrial kitchen had more than enough space for us to prepare meals daily, and then having the benefit of using the warmers/deep freezers etc, and then everyone "all together" sitting down and enjoying the meal due to having a dining room fit for over 20 people was awesome.

The weather didn't keep us from enjoying the many activities on the lodge from enjoying the lodge itself, using the shooting range, walking the large property without being disturbed by other vacationers (that is the best part), enjoying all the exotic animals (no feeding the buffalo), but ultimately the gorgeous lake that was all ours for the duration of our visit. The plus factor is Craig offering the kayaks, boats, and answering every call and text while enduring knee surgery. Great place and hospitable people. We are making Hawkins Ridge Lodge our annual vacation spot..."LOVED IT"

Awesome Property and Great Times With Friends!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Lake Eufaula was for the ABA Couples bass fishing championship. We had 5 couples stay together at the lodge. This property is a nature lover's dream. All 5 couples on our stay can't wait to come back and stay again.

Our stay coincided with the Paradise Pumpkin Patch event held at the lodge. Craig Hawkins, the owner, doesn't normally rent the lodge during this time. He was concerned that we would be bothered by the children and noise. But we actually became kids again (youngest is 50) and enjoyed the event on our first day since the water was off-limits. We took silly pictures at the photo cutout stands, rode the train, went down the inflatable slide, rode the zip line, went on a hayride, rode stick horses and had a great time. I will be providing pictures to Craig of our fun times at his Pumpkin Patch to post on his website if he so chooses.

The layout and size of the property was perfect. We had no problems parking and charging all of our trucks and boats. Everyone had plenty of room to relax. We spent our days on the water and our evenings on the back deck between the main living area and the kitchen building eating, drinking and laughing so hard our ribs hurt. We didn't get a chance to go fishing in the onsite lake or sit in any of the deer stands, but I sure would have loved to. Those items are on my to do list for my next visit.

Craig Hawkins was a gracious host. He would stop by on occasion to see if we needed anything. The only issue we had was starting the dishwasher and it was handled the same day before we returned from the water.

My next stay will have to be a hunting trip. The animal mounts in the lodge are beautiful especially the buck and doe mount. I told Craig he was lucky that one didn't come home with me. This property is a free range hunting property with great trophies based the pictures on his website.

If you're looking for peace and quiet or a place large enough to hold a group and not feel cramped, then look no farther. You have found the perfect peace of heaven. I know we did. I can't recommend this property enough. I have spoken with all of the couples that stayed and we will all definitely be back.

Thank you Craig for your hospitality and for providing such a relaxing environment for our vacation. See you next time...

ABA we're ready to return to Lake Eufaula, please put this lake back on our Championship schedule soon!
