Are there ADA compliant rooms at Hueston?
Hueston Woods State Park Lodge offers seven accessible lodge rooms (two with roll-in showers) and four accessible cabins. These accessible rooms and cabins cannot currently be reserved online.
Can I check into my room or cabin early?
Although we try to accommodate your requests for an early check-in, it's not always possible, depending on how full the lodge or cabins were the night before and how quickly our guests check out in the morning. Our reservation center will be happy to note a request for early check-in on your reservation; however, we cannot guarantee such requests. It's a good idea to call the lodge the evening before or the morning of your arrival to see if they can give you an idea of how early you can check in.
Can I check out of my room or cabin late?
We're glad you want to linger at our park for a while, but we can't always allow you to linger in your room! As long as the lodge is not sold out and we do not need your room, an extra hour for check-out is allowed. We do ask you to be considerate of guests checking in behind you who don't want to wait for their room to be ready. Please check with the front desk the morning of your departure to see if a late check-out is possible.
Is there an entrance fee to enter the park?
There are no park entrance fees to enter Hueston Woods State Park.
How far in advance can I make lodging reservations?
We offer reservations up to 12 months in advance of arrival.
What taxes and fees are there?
Our current tax rate is 7.25% sales tax, a 6% bed tax, and a 3% beautification fee.
What is the Beautification Fee used for?
In partnership with Ohio Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Hotel and Resort Management, Inc. will assess a three percent beautification fee on all purchases at the lodge.
The monies collected are designated to be used for the continual improvement of the overall lodge and cabin accommodations, and recreation amenities only.
Do you have a waitlist for room reservations?
We do not offer a waitlist for reservations.
Since you don't have a waitlist, should I check back every day for a cancellation?
Cancellations do occur; however, they can occur at random with limited success in obtaining the dates and accommodations desired. If your first choice is not available, rather than scheduling your vacation around the possibility of a cancellation, we suggest checking alternate dates instead.
Can I cook in my room?
Cooking is not allowed in our guestrooms; however, we do allow cooking in our cabins which come with fully equipped kitchens.
Do you offer Wireless Internet Access?
We do offer high-speed wireless Internet.
Can I have a pet in my room?

Pets are also not permitted in any cabins that are not designated at "pet friendly." All assistance dogs for visually or hearing impaired or orthopedically challenged individuals are permitted in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991.
