Lodging & Facilities

No matter what kind of organization you are a part of, our facilities can accommodate to your every need.  Our Lincoln Lodge was built in the 1970’s, and is constantly being renovated.  Our upstairs dining hall has the capability to hold 300 people.  The large stone fireplace and large beautiful windows overlooking camp make this a perfect setting for receptions and events.  We also have many other smaller meeting areas that comfortably fit up to 40 people.
Our cabins are available year round, and most of them offer central air conditioning in the summer, and heat in the winter.  They are arranged in dormitory bunk style, and can hold up to 16 people.  With six cabins in use, we can host up to 96 people overnight.  All of our cabins have bathrooms and showers within the cabin.



Our kitchen staff can cater your breakfast, lunch, and dinner, leaving you with less planning, and more time to enjoy your retreat.  You can also choose to bring your own food, or even cook over a campfire!
