Best Family Reunion Venue
Reunions at Canyon Lake Resort - Your Family Reunion Destination Headquarters
By Melissa Price
Plan for the best family reunion venue here in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Planning a family reunion is not a simple task. It is more than everyone being at the same location for the same number of days, although that is the first step. So to get started, choose a date and a location. It is not necessary to have a family member living in the area of the reunion. With access to the internet planning a reunion long distance is not a challenge.
Consider hosting your reunion in a centrally located part of the United States. With families spread out all over the country, the Black Hills of South Dakota offers a multitude of activities for family reunions. National Parks like Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, Wind Cave National Park, and Badlands National Park are only the a few of the highlights that can be visited while your family enjoys a trip to the Black Hills. Web sites that will show you what to expect in the Black Hills: www.travelsd.com, www.blackhillsbadlands.com, www.visitrapidcity.com and www.rcgov.org.
Once you have chosen the area, now chose the venue. A key to a successful family reunion is to work with a lodge, facility or resort that caters to family reunions on a regular basis. They will already be in tune with your needs and requirements. Within the Black Hills there are two resorts that cater to family reunions, The Canyon Lake Resort in Rapid City and Angostura Lodge, near Hot Springs.
The Canyon Lake Resort
is located on the west side of Rapid City on the edge of Canyon Lake Park. This family operated facility with cabins and motel rooms offers an “Out of Town Feel…In Town Appeal.” As an example, you can trout fish within walking distance from your cabin door in Rapid Creek, paddleboat on Canyon Lake, enjoy an evening around a campfire and still you are only seven minutes from vibrant downtown, Rapid City.
The new Angostura Lodge
is located at the edge of the Southern Black Hills near Angostura Lake. This resort gives you a view of both the prairie and the Black Hills. The lodge is located six minutes from the beach of one of the region’s largest lakes, Angostura Reservoir and only 15 minutes from the town of Hot Springs where your guests can visit the Mammoth Site.
Information on either resort can be found at www.canyonlakeresorts.com
