Weekend Retreat Facilities


Our modern, climate controlled cabins are our most popular option for group retreats. We have two cabins with a combined capacity to sleep up to 56 people (28 per cabin*). These beautifully designed cabins contain sturdy bunk beds, hardwood floors, large front porches and indoor bathrooms. They are a great option for children and adults alike. Please note that groups will need to provide their own bed linens and towels for overnight stays.

*Minimum occupancy is 25

Group Camping

Groups of 10-50 can camp and enjoy the solitude of the southern tip of the Canaan Island; group camping is ideal for scouts, family outings, and rustic retreats. There are open group sites as well as riverside single tent sites. The campground is complete with a nearby bathhouse, picnic pavilion, sports fields, basketball courts, hiking trails, river views and campfire rings.


The Yurt is a 700 square foot structure with 5 windows and a clear domed top. The natural lighting provides for a very unique meeting place for groups. The Yurt has a cement floor so you will need air mattresses for overnight, great if there is rain!
