Weather permitting, enjoy a game of volleyball, soccer, frisbee, croquet, horseshoes, or a round of corn hole. If you brought your own mountain bike, take the 1.2-mile ride around tranquil Rockwell Lake or go out a little further and enjoy our roughly 10 miles of trails. Bike rack provided in front of Lodge.
In season, feel free to bring your own skis and snowshoes and enjoy the trails. We do provide complimentary snowshoes to guests on a first come, first served basis.
