News and announcements

Lakewood has employment openings for service assistants in food services and guest services.  This position is available to all ages but is perfect for school students because hours of service are generally outside of school hours and busiest in the summer months.  Go to the employment page for more details.


The new Pavilion at the activities area is open and available for day use groups with picnic table seating for 100 people. It may be used on a first come first serve basis or by reservation. There is no electricity or lighting under the 30' x 48' structure at this time.  


The GlideRide is available by guest group appointments only as it is now be a staffed activity. Policy changes for safety and accountability became necessary. Because of the staffing requirement, there is now a charge of $15/half-hour per group of any size. If there are a significant number of families camping, a sign-up for a general public group appointment may be available. Check with the front office for this possibility. We apologize that this has become necessary.
