(UNDATED) - Nine Indiana state parks and four state park inns have earned a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award for excellence in hospitality.

The award is given to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on

TripAdvisor recognized Brown County, Clifty Falls, Falls of the Ohio, Indiana Dunes, McCormick's Creek, Mounds, Pokagon, Spring Mill and Turkey Run state parks as excellent attractions.

Earning certificates in the lodging category were Canyon Inn at McCormick's Creek State Park, Clifty Inn at Clifty Falls State Park, Fort Harrison State Park Inn, and Spring Mill Inn at Spring Mill State Park.

"There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one's customers," said Kim Marcum, director of business development for Indiana State Park Inns.

TripAdvisor selects honorees using an algorithm that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over 12 months as well as business' tenure and ranking on the site's Popularity Index.

To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

"With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a vote of confidence to our parks and inns and our commitment to excellence," said Christie Sorrels, business services program director for the DNR Division of State Parks.
