Step back in time and check out our 120+-year-old bowling alley, located across the street from our Harrison House. It features 2 working lanes (although they’re showing their age a bit as you might imagine!). You can bowl while your friend sets up the pins and rolls the ball back to you on the gravity-fed rail system.

Horseback Riding

Weather permitting, we offer 45-minute guided trail rides for those 8 years and above for $25/person. For the little ones under 8, we offer “Pony Tails,” during which kids can enjoy a corral ride. To learn more about our horses, click here.

(Horseback riding requires reservation)

Indoor Climbing Loft

We have a climbing loft above our barn that includes a 4-lane climbing wall and different levels of difficulty to provide a range of challenge and fun. Inquire about rates to open the climbing loft for your group during your visit.

Buckingham Field is perfect for team sports like soccer, softball, football or ultimate frisbee. The field also features a basketball court. Try your hand at one of our many sport activities: horseshoes, volleyball, corn hole, or ping-pong. During the winter seasons we have skates for ice-skating on the ponds and sleds for sledding on the hills around the property.

Fish and Canoe

Our three ponds are stocked with fish just big enough to put a grin on your face. We’ve got bass, bluegill, and even some catfish. Catch and release, please. While you are at it, grab a canoe or kayak (aka “fun-yak”) and paddle around. Or do both simultaneously. We also have canoes available at Shawnee Lake for guests visiting between April and October, paddles and life vests provided.

(Reservation required for canoes at Shawnee)


Get outside while you’re here and enjoy God’s beautiful creation. Explore our nearly 1,000 acres of hills, fields, streams, ponds, trails, barns and trees—all in the peaceful outdoors. Our nearly 14 miles of trails are marked and of various lengths and difficulty levels. Shorter trails require about 30 minutes to complete and our longer trails provide up to 2 ½ hours of hiking adventure.

High and Low Ropes Course

Looking for high adventure? Let’s play at treetop level! Our high ropes challenge courses is a great way to challenge yourself in overcoming fears and building camaraderie within your group. Our low ropes course provides another great opportunity for fun team-building as well. Inquire for more information about the specific elements on each of our courses and about our rates to open up the high or low ropes course (or both!) for your group event.

(High and Low Ropes require reservation)

Pamper Pole and Cargo Net

Feeling especially adventurous? Add one or both of these two add-ons to your high ropes challenge course and/or climbing wall and zip-line experience! Our pamper pole allows one or two guests to climb the pole and attempt to stand on top, finishing the challenge with a trust fall off of the pole. Our cargo net provides guests an alternative start to the high ropes challenge course as guests can climb the net instead of starting the challenge course from the tower.
