Facility Photos

The forest and lake offer a picturesque setting throughout the whole year for important family events such as weddings, receptions, and reunions. The gymnasium and dining hall make it possible to host large groups for dinners and catered meals. The camp cook can also provide meals for groups at a very reasonable rate.

A rental rate schedule may be obtained on a separate publication obtained from the camp caretaker.

The Grounds

The camp supports a seven-acre lake stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish. The lake is suitable for fishing and we currently have 9 canoes and 3 kayaks. We currently have no paddleboats but might get some new ones in the spring. We no longer have the floating dock in the middle, we have a water trampoline. A shelter house, picnic tables, and fire pit are also located in the beach area with a volleyball court and archery field located nearby.

On a large open grassy field, located above the lake, is an area for primitive camping, good for tenting and open-air sleeping. The area has fire pits, four restrooms, shelter house and is serviced with running water.
