Family Reunions


Gather for your next family reunion at our lakeside lodge nestled within Bald Eagle State Park. With 16 overnight rooms, we can comfortably accommodate up to 50 guests for your weekend or week-long reunion. If you need additional lodging, many families appreciate the convenience of the state park’s modern campground, just one mile from the Nature Inn.  
Gather each morning for our hearty, country breakfast while you plan your day’s activities. During the summer, the lake provides excellent fishing, boating, and swimming opportunities. You can even borrow a fishing pole and tackle box at the inn or rent a pontoon from the marina for an afternoon of tubing or water skiing. For those that like to take it a little slower, our patio and covered porches are an ideal spot for enjoying a hand of cards or just catching up with family members!  During the winter, you can enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and tobogganing, and for those that like adventure, ice fishing is a lively sport during the winter months at Bald Eagle State Park.  

For longer reunions, our event planner can suggest plenty of day trips for all ages. From local museums to horseback trail rides, there are activities to please everyone.
At the end of the day, regardless of season, gather around the fire with your loved ones sharing memories and creating new ones! A reunion would not be complete without plenty of delicious food and shared family meals.  Our culinary staff and event planner will work with you to plan the perfect set of meals, from picnics and barbecues to traditional family comfort foods, we can customize menus to your family’s tastes.

outdoor patio, grill & fire ring


Book the entire inn for your family reunion, and you'll enjoy exclusive use of our outdoor spaces which are among the most memorable in central Pennsylvania. With views overlooking the lake, our patio draws guests looking to unwind after a full day.

Enjoy an evening meal prepared on our professional-grade gas grills or allow our culinary staff to do the grilling for you. Our communal fire ring is an evening focal point throughout much of the year. We provide seasoned wood, starter materials, and marshmallow sticks.

Gatherings often include lively conversation shared over s’mores or an evening cocktail. During colder months, gatherings move indoors around the large stone fireplace in our great room.
