Melissa A. had this comment on their stay Sept. 14, 2017 :
Just as expected, with all the conveniences of being at home.
  Ric was excellent when communicating about the property. West Gun Creek Boat Ramp
is a curve away at Rend Lake. Close to all activities, restaurants and other stores.
We will be back in the spring.

Michael A Cooper had this to say about he & his buddies Great stay from 11/11/16 to 11/22/16 :
This is the best cabin in southern Illinois, as far as I'm concerned! Super clean,
kitchen big enough to host thanksgiving, comfortable beds, and a huge common area
with satellite TV!   Ric was great, too! Everything we needed, he was happy to oblige.
He even managed to do a little magic so we could come up a few days earlier.
We will most definitely be back. As a matter of fact, I've already booked it for next year,
and hope to be able to plan another trip for this year.
Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay.

Larry & Linda shared this about recent stay in Summer 2016 :
We always enjoy our yearly fishing trips to Rend Lake
and have tried every stay option from campgrounds to resorts until
we were guest of some friends few years ago at
Gun Creek Fin, Fur & Feathers Sportsmens Club.
We have stayed there a couple other times and all were Wonderful experiences,
with Great accommodations including spending time on the
Awesome big covered patio for cook-outs and just relaxing after a day of good fishing.
It had been over a year since our last stay and it was
Amazing the new remodels they had made along with new amenities.
The added bonus this time was a Fantastic Guided Catfishing trip
with Ric Barth that was an Enjoyable day of Catfish catching..
We would encourage you to check with Ric for fishing on your next trip there.
We look forward to our next trip/stays there and recommend you check them out.
Just like they say "We Bring the Comforts of Home to the Outdoors!"
We cannot see ourselves even wanting to stay anywhere else...

Dawn H. had to say about their stay March 25, 2016 :
Overall Great Experience
  This trip was a "meet in the middle" event with family. Ric's home had everything we needed.
We each brought our dog and it worked out wonderfully. The home is very close to the lake
and the grounds were very wet and muddy, so dog stayed out until they were hosed down
for the night. There was a winery, convenient store and state park right down the street.
As well as a very nice church for Sunday morning.

Sandy & Joe had this comment on their stay Nov. 18, 2015 :
  My husband and I recently stayed for a hunting weekend. Owner was easy to work with.
We met with the owner’s son, Ric, and he provided hunting tips and offered his cell # to call
with any questions. His hospitality was more than we expected. We especially enjoyed
being able to BBQ and build a fire near the pavilion. Lots of great hunting and fishing close by.
Great restaurants in either direction within 3-5 miles. The house was spacious
and very comfortable. The bathroom could use a little TLC but was functional.
Overall, we really enjoyed the property and have booked again for next year.

John H. had this to say about a stay during October 2015 :
Exactly what we were looking for!
  At the recommendation of a friend, my son and I had the opportunity to book a stay at
Gun Creek Sportsman´s Club, in southern Illinois. We found it to be a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere in an impressive setting. I can see why hunters and fishermen like this place.
The accommodations were perfect and it is very close to Rend Lake!
Not being familiar with the area, we weren’t sure what activities would be available to us
so we contacted the owner´s son, Ric Barth, who also guides for Todd Gessner Outdoors
and he was able to guide us to a very good day of fishing (caught a mess of fish). Ric also made arrangements for us to do a little Skeet Shooting and we managed to squeeze in a round
of golf at Rend Lake Golf Course which was just minutes away.
The hospitality was much more than we expected.
Gun Creek is very convenient to all kinds of outdoor activities.
We will definitely return next spring for a longer stay with the whole family.
The experience proved to be well worth the trip and provided for a very relaxing weekend.
Gun Creek definitely brings the comforts and amenities of home to the outdoors!

Ty had this to say about a stay during July 2015 :
Cabin stay
  Great place to stay during a family function in the area. Owner very easy to communicate with,
cabin is very clean, and easily accessed off main road. Overall a great stay.
