In August 2013, I hosted my first campout retreat for 60 individuals at Birken Lakeside Resort. The staff (Dani and Neil) were very friendly, accommodating and even made coffee in the morning for all participants. I was very busy and they ensured everyone at the event was enjoying the weekend and all needs were met. The rest of the staff... More

We were looking for a cabin on a lake in the Pemberton area and this place sure met our needs. The cabin was clean and cozy, as was the communal bathroom with showers. The resort was not full when we stayed so it was extremely quiet and incredibly relaxing. We even had the hot tub in the forest to ourselves... More

I had the pleasure of bringing a group of 40 staff members to Birken Lakeside Resort for our annual staff trip for a couple days of camping and team building. The resort site was referred to me by a business associate who highly recommended the location and management team. They were wonderful hosts and made sure we felt welcome to... More

We were looking for a long weekend getaway and were so delighted at what we found at Birken Lakeside Resort. We have children, busy careers and busy lives. The initial shock of not having cell phone reception or wi-fi was quickly replaced by absolute relaxation. Dani (on site manager) was wonderful and accomodating right from the time of booking. We...

This was our second trip to Birken and we once again had a wonderful time. The managers are friendly and helpful and did everything they could to make our stay relaxing. If you are looking for a 5 star resort this is not the place for you. It's like a step back in time to the %0's with a wide... More

Big thank you to the management staff... they were very professional and helpful.

We booked a campsite at the grounds 3 months in advance. When we arrived the owner said that they were hosting a "party tonight." What we didn't anticipate was that she booked a 3 day music festival at the campground where 100's of people were coming to stay in her tiny campground (with 2 toilets) for 3 nights. When we... More

Many years ago, under a different owner, this property was a magical and well-run place. The cabins were reasonably priced, given the level of ‘rustic’ amenities, or lack of. Coldwater cabins, no toilets, super jam-packed with all manner of ‘stuff’, some with tiny fridges, central bath-house, having to cross the highway to get to the rickety dock on the lake.,... More

I agree with Elisa. I found the cabins masively overpriced and totally packed with so many knick-knacks that you couldn't get the place clean if you tried. The microwave was on top of the fridge, everything felt cramped and dirty .. and dark! I didn't want to stay there but since I was in a group had not much choice.... More

If you're looking for a great resort for a group event, look no further than Birken Lakeside resort. We've held a large group event for three years running and everyone always had a great time. The theme cabins are cute and fun and the campground is rustic. The bathrooms are always clean and have hot showers!! The owner has always... More
