White Thorn Lodge Facilities
The 40' x 60' clubhouse, with its stone and concrete patio, is the
focus of club social events. Members and their guests attend the
weekend dances with bands and DJs, dinners, meetings, and floor and
step aerobics. Several times each summer, afternoon concerts are held
outdoors on the patio.
The 26' x 50' swimming pool is heated. The surrounding grassy area has
lounges for sunning and socializing. Outdoor showers, an indoor
bathhouse, and the sauna are a few feet away.
White Thorn has two blacktop tennis courts, two blacktop volleyball
courts, and two new sand volleyball courts. Nearby, a grass all-purpose
playing field is transformed into grass volleyball courts for
Superbowl, and the tennis courts become two additional Superbowl
Hot Tub and Gazebo:
The new hot tub is accessible from the swimming pool, and is covered with a gazebo built by nearby Amish contractors.
The regulation bocce court with its surrounding shaded lawn is a
favorite gathering place every day and evening for both experienced and
novice bocce players. The pool, children's playground, and horseshoe
pits are close by.
Four rental rooms were built by the members (as were most facilities at
White Thorn) and face the large open camping area. We recommend that
you make a reservation (via telephone only) well in advance of a weekend visit.
The snack bar (centered between the pool, tennis courts, volleyball
courts, rental cabins and clubhouse) is managed and staffed by
volunteer members. Breakfast and Lunch are served Saturdays, Sundays,
and Holidays. Check the events schedule for activity based Dinner
events as we often hold pot lucks and cookouts through the Summer.
