Woodland Lakes is an oasis of unspoiled beauty, far removed from the frantic pace of the city. From back-country trails and a tranquil lake, to rustic cabins and picnic shelters, to our beautiful multipurpose Pioneer Lodge and Conference Center, Woodland Lakes is the perfect place to come enjoy the beauties of creation and the peace and quiet of the great outdoors.

A familiar gathering place for meetings, banquets, and recreation, the camp also offers a dynamic location for workshops, retreats, and exciting educational opportunities. We have worked hard to make our campus setting among the finest in the tri-state area, and are able to accommodate most any need your group may have.
