Lodging: Group Centers

modern group center

Whether you need to host 20 or 200, group centers are perfect for family reunions, scout troops, and other large gatherings. All group centers include dining areas, kitchens, and bathrooms, and some have staff quarters, craft buildings and other facilities. Modern group centers feature additional sleeping quarters. Rent one just for the day, or stay overnight.

Utility charges (fuel, electric, local phone, etc.) may be an additional fee per night, unless otherwise specified, and vary by park.
