The Lodge

In addition to being the location of the resort office, the lodge at Campfire Bay Resort has a coffee and ice cream cafe, gift shop, meeting room, game room, laundromat, and three restrooms. It is open to the public, so stop on in!

Coffee and Gift Shop

Our cafe serves excellent cappuccinos, lattes, tea, and fresh baked goods year round. Our coffee is roasted locally at StoneHouse Coffee. From May to September stop by to enjoy homemade waffle cones and ice cream!

You can relax with a book from our small library by the fireplace or chat with friend at a table while you eat. The gift shop has fun lake apparel for four of the area lakes, cute hats, scarves, candles, bags, unique jewelry, toys, cards, books, souvenirs, fishing gear, last minute items, scrapbooking supplies, and more.

Meeting Room

Our gathering room, as we affectionately call it, is the perfect gathering place for most any occasion. Whether you want to scrapbook or have a business retreat, you need a charming place for a small wedding reception or a family reunion, our tastefully designed gathering room will meet your needs.

The room can hold around 100 people in just chairs, 25 6ft tables back-to-back for crafters, or around 90 people at tables. A small, but full kitchen is in the room and a small commercial kitchen is down below in the shop if you want to cook your own meals.

While this room is located on the 2nd floor of the lodge, there is an outside ramp making it handicap accessible. We provide huge carts for groups to wheel their supplies up from the  bottom of the ramp, right next to where you can park your car, making it very easy and convenient.

During the summer months, the lodge is mostly used for organized activities or for large family groups wanting to all eat together. The room is available for renting by non-guests for $115/day and for a small cleaning fee of $40/stay for guests staying in cabins--call or email with further questions.

Game Room

The lodge is not just just a place to shop or have a meeting. Our game room is a great place to find a little entertainment with several video games, ping pong, pool, air hockey, and foozball. Our popular carpet ball is just outside under the overhang for more lively play.

Laundry Room

The small coin-operated laundromat is open to the public with preference to our guests and housekeeping staff. Hours are 24 hours a day every day of the week. Resort laundry is typically done between 9am and 4pm, so avoid those hours if you want the machines all to yourself.
