Retreat centers

As we continue to see the COVID-19 situation unfold, State Parks is committed to keeping our guests and staff safe.  We have made the decision to close all retreat center facilities through April 30.  Program staff will reach out to each affected group to discuss reschedule and/or cancellation options.

At this time, we plan to open on May 1.  We continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and will contact any affected reservation holders if anything changes.

State Park’s retreat centers were established as youth camps in the 1950s for student outdoor educational activities. We now offer these lodges with clustered cabins and other rustic facilities to various groups looking for accommodations with outdoor recreation. Youth groups, schools, families, business and many other groups find these accommodations in a natural environment a great way to gather.


Facilities vary in size and layout, and typically include:

  • One or more meeting rooms
  • Kitchen with equipment for preparing and serving meals
  • Overnight lodging
  • Exclusive use
  • Restrooms and showers
  • Modest rental rates
  • Access to outdoor recreational activities


Reservations may be requested one year in advance of arrival date. Groups may view availability online. State Parks program staff coordinate all reservations. 

Request a reservation by calling (360) 902-8600 or emailing. Priority is given to phone requests.
