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.
Swimming Pool / Therapy Tub:
A New 28' x 60' heated swimming pool, surrounding sunning deck, and in-ground therapy tub was cristened in the Spring of 2013.
Both the pool and therapy tub are fully handicapped accessible which includes lifts to enter and exit the water as well as proper wheelchair
ramps to access the complete sunning area.
Outdoor showers, an indoor bathhouse, and the sauna are a few feet away.
White Thorn has one blacktop tennis court, two blacktop volleyball
courts, two (new in 2016) blacktop pickleball courts, and three deep sand volleyball courts. Nearby, a grass all-purpose
playing field is used for cornhole and kickball events. This field is transformed into grass volleyball courts for
Superbowl, and the tennis courts become two additional Superbowl
Hot Tub and Gazebo:
An above ground hot tub (104°) is accessible from the showers, 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.
Camping is available in a large "loop" consisting of grassed sunny and shaded sites. Multiple
electric and water connection points are strategically located throughout the area. A seperate
location in the "flats" is available for those with pets. A modern indoor bathhouse and a dump
station are near the camping areas. Sites are available on a first come, first served basis,
and no reservations are needed, nor accepted, for specific locations.
