Beautiful setting! by Kevin 07/10/2018
Beautiful setting with a lot of fun activities. Keep in mind that you are completely disconnected from the outside world here. No cell service, no internet, no TV. There's not even a TV with a DVD player. You won't find a microwave, dishwasher, washer or dryer. The being said, the accommodations are comfortable, and there's no reason why you shouldn't have a good time.
Beautiful cabin and property! by Kenzie 07/10/2018
Beautiful cabin's and property. Saw deer constantly, so many beautiful wild flowers, and a soothing babbling book runs through Camp Jackson. There is a decent sized lake that you can catch-and-release fish from, paddle boats, and even a slide to set up for the kids. Pleanty of balcony space and the cabins were comfortably cool. Such a homie place in the middle of the forest. If you want to enjoy your surroundings with no cell service, and no TV this is the perfect getaway

We have stayed at the Camp Jackson property for the last two years for our family reunion. by Ann Call 07/26/2013
We have stayed at the Camp Jackson property for the last two years for our family reunion.
We searched a long time trying to find a big enough place to accommodate all of us, but still be reasonable in price.
Last summer was our first time. Everyone loved it so much we decided to come again this year. Because we love it so much we are returning the next two summers.
We are big enough that some people need to sleep in tents, but there is plenty of room during the day for all of us.
The kids loved the lake with the paddle boats. We saw deer wandering every day. We had fires at night and roasted marshmallows.
It is beautiful!!!
Thank you for providing such a wonderful place at a reasonable price.
This was the most amazing place to bring our family for a reunion. by Becky Ray 07/24/2013
This was the most amazing place to bring our family for a reunion. We had 58 people attending. The Jackson retreat was everything we could have dreamed of. It was so beautiful in every way. We saw so much wildlife and we had a great time on the little lake with the paddle boat and our kayaks. The beds were comfortable and we had enough for everyone. We used one of the bunk houses for the teenage girls and one for the the boys. They loved that. It rained almost every evening, but the main floor was big enough for our family gatherings and programs. The pavillion was ideal for our games and crafts. The frig space was limited, but we used our ice chest and got along just great. There was everything you needed there. My family raved about it. Thanks!!
We had a wonderful family reunion at Camp Jackson. by Mary Gibson 07/11/2011
We had a wonderful family reunion at Camp Jackson. The area was beautiful, the lodge spacious & comfortable and the pavilion perfect for cooking and entertaining large groups. The people who take care of the place were friendly and great to work with. Thanks!
We had a great weekend at the Lodge. by Kandi Barrell 06/01/2010
We had a great weekend at the Lodge. Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and we comfortably fit 75 or so guests at the ceremony/reception and had several overnight guests. Thank you for providing such a wonderful location!
