Family Events

Deer Lake is an ideal venue to connect as a family and enjoy a walk along one of our many trails. Bring your furry family members (on a leash) and take a stroll on your own or sign up for one of our planned hikes. Throughout the year we also offer family camping, concerts and seasonal activities. Looking to learn a specific outdoor skill? Contact our office to ask about custom programming. Our goal is to help everyone obtain the skills to feel comfortable and confident in the outdoors.

Overnight Events

Deer Lake is one of only a few local camping facilities open year-round. Come for a quick mid-week respite or stay and enjoy an entire weekend. How do you prefer to camp? We have tent sites, plenty of trees for hammocks, lean-tos, pavilions and a few rustic cabins that sleep up to 36 people.
We also offer single-and-multi-day team building and leadership programs. Bring your work or sports team and spend the weekend growing into a more cohesive unit as you tackle challenges together.
