All our accommodations offer air-conditioning, wi-fi and a variety of lake views and access. We have two primary types of accommodations, “The Camp” and “The Retreat Center”. Our Camp ground offers bunk-style cabins able to accommodate 125 guests. Our Retreat Center can house up to 44 in ‘motel-like’ accommodations.

The Camp is just what you may think of! We have a variety of buildings, a dining lodge, a craft building, an indoor stage, an outside chapel, fire pits and other out-doorsy accommodations. The Camp offers two types of cabins. One style is a smaller bunk cabin that offer 28 bunk-style beds in two rooms, each room with their own toilet and sink. A large room adjoins the two bunk rooms. Showering is done in our shower house.

The Camp also has two  larger cabins that accommodate 32 persons in four bunk-styled rooms. Each room has full bathroom accommodation with shower, toilet and sink. These cabins have a very large great room, small fridge and small common area sink. These cabins offer large-screen LCD TVs for group events and also have small decks as well. These larger cabins are year-round.

Our Retreat Center is oriented towards those who require linen service and more private accommodations similar to those found in a hotel. We offer 11 rooms with a variety of bed options from King-size to our rooms with four twin beds (one is a bunk-style bed). Each room has its own bathroom with shower. The Center offers a conference room that can seat approximately 80 people as well as an executive room that can seat 12 persons around a large conference table.  Both meeting rooms offer superb light for craft work and we have the equipment needed for your business presentation as well.  The Center has a lake-side, country dining room and meals are available, made to order, by our staff cooks. In the winter, the fireplace is a wonderful gathering  place for your group.

Our beach front is equipped with every water sport toy necessary to enjoy the lake-- from kayaks and canoes to motor boats and water toys. There is no limit to the fun your group can have. We have a large playing green for all field games, we’re near the SD state park offering nature hikes and Frisbee-golf, and we have a wonderful variety of indoor games and toys like bumper pool, shuffle ball and other equipment to assure ‘never a dull moment’.
