Refuge Campground

The campground includes a fire pit and two outdoor toilets. Running water and showers are located just 1/2 mile away beside the main lodge.
The large oak trees are beautiful.
There are five miles of all-weather trails around the lake and through the forests and meadows.

Upper Deck

The night time view of the stars and planets from our south-facing upper deck is amazing. The deck is accessible by metal stairs or direct from the parking lot of direct from the upper dormitory area. Seating is provided for 30 people. A canopy has recently been installed over the deck for rain and heat protection.
