Welcome Interested Retreat and Event Planners!

Thanks so much for your interest in Winnamocka for a retreat!  Here on our website you will find a Wilderness Lodge Menu Planner, information and pricing for our Ropes Course, as well as Fort Jackson Cabin rental details, and Additional Activity Options. Following is more information to help you know us better.  We would love to have your group at Winnamocka in the future!

Camp Winnamocka consists of 220 acres of trails, lakes, jungle lagoons, and so much more.  Our Wilderness Lodge is our eating and meeting facility that is made solely out of logs and glass with decks stretching over a 13-acre lake.  It is perfect for seminars, classroom, or simply relaxing by the 35 foot fireplace.

Fort Jackson is our huge pioneer fort that sleeps up to 148 in bunk style rooms.  These are not your everyday camp style rooms.  They have air-conditioning and heat, and private baths.  They are definitely first rate.  The atmosphere of actually sleeping in a real pioneer fort is unmatched! Corporate groups, church groups, and youth are just some of the groups that enjoy this one of a kind get-a-way.

The ropes course at Winnamocka is excellent for retreats.  Through games and initiatives participants gain concepts of teamwork, communication skills, leadership skills, accountability, trust, etc.  The high elements promote self-confidence and pride as each individual decides for herself/himself whether to climb 5 feet or 35 feet up trees, ropes, and poles.  All are surrounding a 35 foot Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.  We also have a 450 foot zipline that takes harnessed participants whizzing from the high elements.  It is truly an exciting and rewarding experience.  We can do half days or full days of low element ropes only or a full day of low and high element ropes.

We have canoeing, funyaking, treasure hunts, swimming or relaxing by the pool, Pirate Ship rides, s’more roasts, hayrides, all of which can make your stay at Winnamocka unforgettable.  However, if your group just desires to meet, relax, explore trails, and fish Winnamocka is also the place to be.  We customize retreats specifically for each group.

Again, we can do half day, whole day, overnight, or multiple night retreats – whatever your group desires!  Call us with any questions.  We would love to have you all in the future!

Sincerely from Fort Jackson,
The Winnamocka Team

They have air-conditioning and heat as well as private baths. They are definitely first rate. The atmosphere of actually sleeping in a real pioneer fort is unmatched!

* NEW RECREATION AND MEETING ROOM *

FortThe cabin of Jackson’s Trading Post (formerly our offices and living area) has been remodeled to use for a recreational/meeting and lounging area for our groups. This beautiful area includes a gorgeous fireplace, television with DVD player and limited cable, pool table, full kitchen with industrial coffee maker, full size refrigerator, beautiful pine bar, and limited free wi-fi.  What could be more perfect for staff meetings or small break-out sessions?  It’s ideal for early morning coffee, late night snacks, watching movies, or a recreation area for a friendly game of cards or billiards.

If interested in having access to this living/meeting area in addition to your rented cabins there is a one-time charge for the entire retreat of $250.00.

We can have parties for about 250 guests. Sixty inch round tables or banquet tables are both available.

Our Ropes Course includes both high and low elements that can help anybody in your group become better leaders, team-members, and individuals. We have a wide variety of ropes to challenge the members of your group no matter how “physical” or daring they may think themselves to be. This is informal learning at its best!

Additional Activities and Extras:

The Giant’s Ladder offers a one-of-a kind challenge, and what a great sense of accomplishment when you reach the top! Your group is guaranteed to remember an exciting treasure hunt for Blackbeard’s hidden loot, enhancing those teamwork skills in the process. How about a real, live pirate ship battle at sea!! Sorry, staying dry is not an option for ye skallywags!

The menus include everything from the King’s Prime Rib and Cornish Hen to Delicious Homemade Bacon Cheeseburgers or Mama Lee’s Potato Soup and Sandwiches, so it makes finding the ideal dinner for your group an easy task. We offer plated dinners to buffets, hors d’oeuvre table creations to Taco Salads. Everything at Winnamocka is made from scratch, even the Lemon Ice Box Pie is prepared crust to filling by our chefs. We have never had a group leave without begging us for the recipes for our homemade rolls or Four Layer Chocolate Pie. We can accommodate most any dietary needs, just let us know.
