Red Oak Lodge

Located on the wood’s edge with inspiring mountain views, Red Oak Lodge is a cozy retreat in winter or a cool haven in summer, and is an ideal facility for youth groups, schools, family reunions, youth camps, seminars, and men’s, women’s, or young adult groups. Red Oak Lodge can accommodate groups of 14 to 60 people, and can host up to 100 people in the meeting rooms when used with additional sleeping areas.

With two bedroom wings, kitchens, and meeting rooms, groups can reserve the whole building (24-56 people), or half the building (14-28 people). An additional 4 people can be accommodated in the motel-style private suite.
