What Our Visitors Have Said

We held our daughter's wedding here this past weekend and it was a great venue and the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating! I highly recommend it!!

Robin Haring

A great camp I attended as a child and youth! Great lake but a good balance between lake and other activities at the camp.

Love the place- my kids and grandkids went there, my son was a staff member for his high school years, love to go to the women's retreats
