STAY THE WEEKEND
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city and take a step back in time to a place where life doesn't move so fast. Where the results of this weeks baseball games are the talk of the town. Where traffic jams only occur in the school pickup lines. A place where friends are family.
We hope you'll stay the weekend and find about this beautiful place we call home.
ENJOY THE WONDER

Visitors enjoy boating, canoeing, and fishing in the picturesque lakes. Nature students can hike over 13 miles of trails to observe and study the abundant plant and animal life.
