Get Away On a Weekday!

Get out on the lake, layout on the beach or hike some trails.  Salt Fork’s Activities staff can also help you plan for a fun and energy-laden day with the kids.  Let’s face it.   Getting everyone together can be tough with summer camp, football, cheer, band practice and all of the other busy summer planned activities.  A quick break with the entire family may be just what you need to make this summer most memorable.
