I planned a camping trip for all my cousins in honor of our cousin getting married and we couldn't be happier with our trip and stay at Raccoon Lodge!! There were 10 of us, so it was hard to find something that worked for all of us, but we all had a weekend to remember here at, Raccoon Lodge. We had to change our plans last minute and were so lucky Raccoon Lodge had an opening. I spoke with Heather on the phone and she was so friendly, helpful, flexible, and accommodating. She, the staff, and the owner Roger went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and fun even staying up late to help us and checking the fuel on the boat so we could take it out for sunrise without any trouble.
My family was new to camping, so this was the perfect blend of experiencing the outdoors without being too out in the bare wilderness. The lodge gives you a wonderful naturey feeling while still being equipped with modern conveniences to ease your stay. My only suggestion is to get some fishing poles for the people to use and this place would be pretty perfect! :) I talked to the owner and he promised to look into it, so I hope the next people that go will be lucky enough to have that! All other things were provided-- cooking supplies and dishes, a gas grill, wood for a campfire. It was very helpful to have those things there already.
The location of this place is AMAZING! right on the lake, beautiful views, I really recommend renting a boat from the lodge and taking it out to see the sunrise or set! With its close proximity to Turkey Run (25 min) and Racoon Lake itself is awesome, this really is the best thing you could ask for in a trip.
Take advantage of all the things that the location and the lodge provides and I guarantee you'll have a trip to remember for a lifetime.
Just call the place if you have questions, they're informative, helpful, and flexible!
