Retreat & Hospitality Groups

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” ~John Muir

Plan Your Own Retreat

Time and time again, people have realized that coming out into nature can help center their spirits and renew their mission. Suttle Lake Camp can help you and your group reconnect with each other and your mission in new ways through stunning settings and radical hospitality. Here you’ll discover “a place apart to be together.”

Suttle Lake Camp is proud to host over 80 nonprofit organizations per year that work to better the community and the world. These nonprofit organizations include religiously affiliated groups, schools, and service organizations, and serving them is a vital part of Suttle Lake Camp’s mission and ministry.

Wi-Fi and Cell Phones

While we encourage guests to fully experience the relaxation and inspiration of nature during their time at Suttle Lake Camp by “unplugging” from their devices, we understand that guests sometimes do require access to technology. Therefore, we have easily accessible wi-fi internet in the main buildings of camp. Cell phone coverage varies according to provider.


To make a reservation, contact Jane Petke at (541) 595-6663 or
