Bambi Lake Retreat and Conference Center is a Christ-centered, family, friendly 240 acre facility with lodging for over 200 guests. We have a 25 site campground that includes four semi-rustic mini cabins and renovated bathhouse.

We are working to get our general policy pages regarding day use, pets, off road and recreational vehicles, waterfront usage, student health forms, emergency contacts, and a couple others updated so that we can have a link to a printable version. No alcohol is permitted on the property and all of our buildings are smoke free as well. Pets are not allowed in our main buildings or in the waterfront area. We do have one lodging building that we use for guests that have pets with them. Pets are allowed in the campground area but must be confined, on a tie out, or a leash. We also ask that there are on a leash at all times when walking anywhere on the property.

We have a number of improved gravel roads around the main buildings along with unimproved woods trails. Please keep in mind that the speed limit for all vehicles on the property is 10mph. Our soil type is the typical upper Michigan sand and with medium sized gravel stone. The topography is gently rolling and sloped across the majority of the developed areas, as well as the forested paths and trails. Please keep in mind that the majority of our property is fairly uneven sandy ground, especially for those in your group that may have mobility issues. We do have a covered concrete walkway that connects the Lodge and the Wilson Building.

We are open all year and have a wide variety of Bambi Lake Life produced events for all ages. Our events are created for you to be encouraged, equipped, and empowered.
