And hikers will find that our 2.8 miles of hiking trails are a place of discovery and home to nearly 200 species of wildlife. Additionally, our picnic shelter is a great place for group picnics and family outings. The shelter has a gas grill and seating for 72-96 people and ample recreational opportunities in the form of two horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, a frisbee (disc) golf course, and large open field.

The main room, with expansive windows and scenic vistas, can accommodate more than 100 people, and there are two smaller program/meeting rooms that offer additional flexibility We also have 2 recreation rooms on the lower level that can serve as breakout rooms or be used for board and table games. A fully equipped commercial kitchen provides a variety of dining options; you can cook for yourself or we can work with you to arrange catering. When the day is through, your group can “rough it” a bit by staying overnight. The lodge has dormitory–style overnight accommodations for as many as 60 people.
Our grounds are home to six rustic cabins that offer another option for overnight accommodations. Each 15′ X 15′ cabin is equipped with a coal stove and has bunk beds that can sleep up to eight people. Groups can use a nearby charcoal grill or the fire pit for cooking. Climbing Tower Stony Acres has a 30-foot climbing tower that provides a venue for teaching rock climbing in a controlled environment. The tower is designed for smaller groups; however, larger groups can also be accommodated when climbing is alternated with other activities such as canoeing or orienteering. The tower is perfect for beginners, but is challenging for advanced climbers as well.
