8 ways to spend time with your family at Riverside Resort

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:5

This is the good news y’all, that Christ invites all of us into His family. He so graciously has given us a glimpse of what this feels like by giving us earthly families. We know that being in an earthly family sometimes brings hurts and hardships, but it also brings so much joy and happiness. At Riverside Resort we pray that our activities, facilities, and resources provide opportunities for everyone to grow closer to their families and friends; and have a great time while doing them.

There are countless ways to spend time with others on our resort, but here are some ideas to get you started.


1. Fishing

Some people enjoy to get further out on the water to fish, but there is great fishing right from our docks. There have been multiple occasions where our 3 sons have caught so many sunfish off the dock that it is hard to keep up with them.

2. Making water balloons  

What a great activity on a hot summer day. There is great lawn space throughout the resort to play any water balloon game you choose. Or maybe you and another family member will be sneaky and plan an attack on an unexpecting target.;)

3. Taking a walk

You can take a walk at any time of day, but the most peaceful time is in the early morning. During this time, typically the grounds are quiet and the water is calm.

4. Swimming 

There is something for everybody down at the beach. You can have swim races, go down the slide, play on the splash mat, or simply splash around.

5. Collecting Rocks 

God’s creation is beautiful and endless. Children are so good about noticing the small things in life. This couple has taken time this particular afternoon to find the best looking rocks with their grandsons.

6. Playing volleyball 

Now time for some friendly competition! Maybe it will “older” vs “younger” or family vs family. However you choose to split the teams, there is bound to be lots of fun times shared.

7. Boating 

There are multiple options to choose from at Riverside Resort from canoes, to paddleboards, to kayaks, to pontoons and even a few more. Click here for rental details. Some great memories are bound to be made.

8.Talking on the dock 

After a long excitement-filled-day at the resort, just take some time to talk about the day or reminisce about other great memories you have had.
