Recreational Facilities

Black Rock Retreat provides numerous recreational opportunities for retreat groups to enjoy while they are on our property. We believe that these resources allow people to connect with each other, developing deeper friendships and often breaking down barriers to meaningful conversations and communication with other members in your group. These recreational options are available for our retreat guests at no additional charge. Click here to see recreational facility pricing for day guests.


We have two large adjoining ballfields that are suitable for softball, kickball, soccer, ultimate frisbee or any other large field game.

Lake Of The Woods

Nestled in the woods, our gorgeous Lake Of The Woods is open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend and includes a beach front swimming area, a 130-foot Waterslide, and Manatee, (water trampoline with attachments), and raft.
