Modern Amenities, Rustic Charm

Lakeshore has come a long way since its opening in 1948. All our lodging spaces have heat and air conditioning with interior bathrooms. We offer a variety of lodging and meeting spaces to meet the needs of any group. You can make yourself at home in one of our bunk-style cabins or choose more private rooms. Our range of meeting spaces will allow groups of any size to gather for worship, play, or small group sessions.

Tent & Trailer Campsite
Located in a field that’s crossed by one of our creeks, there are several sites for tents and/or RVs with 14 electric and water hook-ups.

Wilderness Camp
This is Lakeshore’s outpost camp. The camp sleeps about 30 on bunk beds sheltered by permanent canvas tents. Four-wheel drive vehicles are required to drive up the hill, but the walk up to the campsite isn’t too bad.

Meeting Spaces

Conference Center Sun Room-Upstairs
This room, with a beautiful backdrop of Kentucky Lake, seats approximately 200.

Pilcher Memorial Tabernacle
This beautiful building seats 200 people.

Conference Center Sun Room-Downstairs
This smaller sunroom near the dining hall will seat approximately 75.

Administration Building – Lower Floor
A meeting room suited for groups of 40 or fewer, this room has a beautiful view of the garden labyrinth, Tennessee River, and nearby woods.

Recreation Areas

Alford Recreation Center
The Alford Recreation Center is a “common area” available to all groups on site and designed as an area for relaxing during your stay. This is a great place to play the board games provided in the closet, foosball and air hockey, or watch a movie on the couches. A basketball court, with two regulation-size goals and basketballs, is directly outside this building. Outside lighting is available for nighttime play.

Amenities include Direct TV, wireless internet, and a small kitchen featuring a full-sized refrigerator, hot plate, coffee maker, and sink. The building also has central heat and air, bathrooms, and a water fountain.

The Waterfront
A sandy beach sits on the edge of Kentucky Lake with a beautiful view of the water and the hills that surround us. Two large crosses grace the area–one lighted cross, then the iconic slanted cross made from fallen cedar trees. The picnic area with tables, grills, and a fire ring is a great place to gather, cook or keep warm. Canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards are available if you want to take an adventure. Adult supervision and life jackets are required. Whether you’re coming down to play, warm yourself by a fire, or just sit on a bench and enjoy the sounds of the water, the waterfront is great scenery.

Worship  Areas

Pilcher Memorial Tabernacle
Located a short walk from the main camp group, this air-conditioned and heated building has a stage area with a pull-down screen and sound system. There is a kneeling rail in front of the stage area. It will seat approximately 200 people. There are several old church pews around the inside walls that can offer additional seating.

Waterfront Vesper Area
This outdoor worship area seats approximately 200 and faces the Tennessee River and our beachfront area. It features stadium-style bleachers and has a sound system and microphone.

Boy’s side Vesper Area
This outdoor worship area seats approximately 125 and also faces the Tennessee River but has a much more secluded feel because of the number of trees surrounding it. Located on what we traditionally call “the boy’s side of the hill” (a term from summer camp season), it also has stadium style with a sound system and microphone.

Garden Labyrinth
This labyrinth, located on the main campground, will give you a place to reflect quietly on where you are in life. A guide for the labyrinth is available in the Lakeshore office.
