Family Cabin Rentals

We strive to provide hospitality toward a spiritual, relational and recreational experience. We have a variety of lodging and camping options to fit your needs. Guests will have use of the grounds for hiking, fishing, and lawn games. Daily swimming and boating times will be offered each afternoon (available through Labor Day and possible beyond, weather dependent).

We will continue to offer all options for Family Cabin Rentals through September. The Pine Center, Treehouse, and Tent/RV options will remain available to reserve year-round.

As schools around the state are considering options of At Home Learning for all or part of the semester, Camp Otterbein would love to have your family for a getaway experience. There is Wifi available at Albright Lodge and the Pine Center where your student can still get their lessons done (and you can still work from 'home'), but you can also take advantage of a family retreat at the same time.
