Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort

"Days and nights alike at Waldenwoods speak the mystic language of nature in her loveliest mood. We hope you find here all the joy and happiness that we have.”

So spoke J. Robert Crouse, who founded Waldenwoods (originally a business retreat visited by such notables as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone).

Waldenwoods still offers a special up-north, but close-to-home experience to visitors and members alike. Members can rent anything from a rustic cottage to a luxury villa or camp for free on one of over 400 large grassy campsites. Waldenwoods Resort offers boating, fishing and hiking. Families can play together or simply lounge by the swimming pool. Summer activities include golf, fireworks, hayrides, dances, bonfires, tennis and beach volleyball. Winter is equally festive with a winter carnival, New Year’s party, Valentine’s Ball, ice fishing competitions and sledding.
