Family Reunions and Group Gatherings

Family Reunions


Elkhart Lake is the perfect reunion or holiday destination for your family. Bring the kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and even the in-laws. With so much to do, everyone will find Elkhart Lake to be their favorite place to be all year long. The pristine lake provides a wide variety of activities regardless of the season. There are plenty of watercraft rental options that appeal to the whole family. Rentals include pontoons, fishing boats, sailboats, kayaks and paddle boats—all with the necessary equipment. Elkhart Lake’s clean, sandy beaches are perfect for building sand castles or just setting up a beach chair and relaxing in the sun. Why not take a leisurely pontoon boat cruise on the lake to enjoy the beautiful lake views?


Families on the go will find a number of activities to enjoy, including biking or hiking the trails of the gorgeous Kettle Moraine State Forest. Bike rentals that range from mountain bikes to tandems and burleys are available for adults and kids alike.


Wintertime is fun, too, with sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling or cross-country skiing. It’s also a great time to stay inside, soak in your whirlpool tub or cuddle next to the fireplace.


Each of our three resorts offer spacious accommodations with the comforts of home—some include kitchens, laundry facilities and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Contact us for help planning your next family gathering.
