Both of our campfire pits are located along the shore of the lake and are available year round (fire ban depending).
Upon request, we will reserve a campfire pit and set up the wood. Your host will give you a box with kindling and a lighter so you can light it. The large fire pit (seats ~150) is located near Okerson Lodge, and the small fire pit (seats ~75) is near Lakeside Cabins, Chapel, and Lundgren Lodge.
Reserving a camp fire pit is first come, first served, so let Guest Services know the day and time that you are putting that on your schedule.
Please be sure that you have wrapped up by 10 PM in order to abide by the noise curfew.
