Had a great time. The dinner was very good with salmon, pulled pork, carved beef, and chicken. Two Tone Willie was the band and they kept the dance floor full. Will definitely be back next year.

The chalets and cabins on the lakes have a little outside grill. Not too big, but adequate for several steaks. I hope this helps!
