One of the best features of our incredible Indiana hotel and resort here at Oakwood is our impressive variety of activities available throughout the entire year – without even having to leave our grounds! No matter what your go-to is when it comes to entertainment, dining, physical activity, or relaxation, Oakwood Resort offers some of the best ways to unwind, reconnect, and enjoy every minute of your getaway.
We are the ideal destination for any trip away from home; Oakwood Resort has played host to hundreds of family reunions, corporate retreats, birthday parties, business conferences, bridal showers, training seminars, weddings, and more, so you can rest assured that we are the experts in fun and entertainment, no matter the situation! Following are just some of the ways your family, you and your significant other, your friends, or even your employees can enjoy the outdoors at the finest lakeside hotel in Indiana:
Lake Wawasee Boat Tours and Activities
The Oakwood Tour Boat was built in 1986 for the US Parks Department; our Indiana hotel acquired it in July of 2013. Guests can enjoy a gorgeous tour of the lake with other members of the public – however, the boat is also available for private tours. Holding a max capacity of 44, it’s perfect for the group that wants to experience unique fun on the lake. There are other activities available as well, including paddle boat and kayak rental as weather permits, beach access during the summer for sun and fun, and in the winter, ice fishing is not uncommon! Talk about an amazing event venue!
Trails and Trails for Land Lovers
If being on the water isn’t quite your bag, we’re sure you’ll enjoy our gorgeous trails. Taking scenic walks is one of the most popular activities here at Oakwood – but you don’t have to walk to nearby cities like Fort Wayne or South Bend to get a good workout for your legs. Our trails are perfect for walking, biking, and hiking, and many of our guests also enjoy a walk or bike ride through the local community, too. We have an excellent paved track that is a mile long that runs right near Lake Wawasee, and there are many pathways, rugged trails, and peaceful walkways all around the lake. Just pick your adventure, any time of the year.
Games and More for Your Competitive Side
Just because summer is over until next year doesn’t mean you have to curb your favorite outdoor sportsmanship activities for several months! Some of the most memorable times during corporate events, family reunions, team-building activities, conferences, and parties are competitive games. We offer an impressive variety of engaging games and activities, including cornhole, frisbees, and giant Jenga. Our basketball court right on our property is waiting for your next game of hoops! We also have other sporting goods and equipment available for use at the front desk – just ask us!
It’s easy to see why Oakwood Resort is the top Indiana destination for banquets, events, vacations, and getaways of all kinds. With so many opportunities within the hotel and resort and outdoors, there is never a lack of things to do near South Bend, Warsaw, Shipshewana, or Fort Wayne! Our idyllic location is just a short drive to these cities and many others, so whether you stay on our property for the duration of your stay or you take some time to expand your horizons on short trips, you’ll be glad you chose Oakwood Resort for your couples retreat, weekend getaway, corporate outing, or celebration!
