What should I bring?
Please pack as you would for a mountainous vacation. You may encounter mud and steep terrain and we suggest packing appropriate footwear. The weather can be cold at night, no matter the time of year, and we recommend layers, extra blankets, and warm socks. Also, linens, bedding and towels are not provided.

Can I bring in my own boat?
Pyramid Life Center does not allow motorized boats of any kind. You are welcome to bring in your own canoe, kayak, or paddle board. All watercraft must be sanitized before entering the water to avoid contaminating our lake with invasive species.
