Guest Reviews

Played in the Lake by Steven 09/14/2019
Had a great time at the lodge. If you're looking for a place to get your group away from everything then this should be ideal. It was very quiet. We were able to hike, play in the lake and enjoy the outdoors for the entire weekend. The lodge had plenty of room for our group of 20. We'll definitely keep it in mind for our next outing.
Wonderful space to accommodate many! Beautiful location, private, and beautiful well-kept property by Celeste Durham 08/24/2017
Loved the lake, pavilion, decks for socializing and playing games and the main Lodge was close to water so we felt all together while doing separate activities
Camp Jackson Retreat! by Ladell & Ann 07/21/2017
We found Camp Jackson 5 years ago and have returned every summer for our big family reunion. It is a great place for family. It is private, peaceful, green and cool. There is a lake/pond outside the main cabin that the kids love to play at. There are two balconies and a patio to use as you enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We see deer frequently while we stay there. It is beautiful! We will continue to return as long as our large family can be accommodated. Highly recommended!
Thank you for an awesome stay! by Caren A 06/28/2017
The Camp Jackson Resort was a beautiful place for our family vacation. We had 62 family members there, ages 4 months to 75 and there was something for everyone! We especially enjoyed the lake and the cooler weather to relax and visit. Accommodations were so nice with all the bedding and towels included. Thank you for an awesome stay!

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!
