We’re going to take a quick break from the tour of resorts and talk about traditions. With it being the end of November and with December and January quickly approaching, it’s the time of year where traditions are most prominent for everyone!

Here’s what you may not realize about fall and winter traditions: For many families, Outdoor Adventures has become an important part of their traditions!
At this time, both Lake Shore Resort (in Davison) and Saginaw Bay Resort (in Standish) are open year round. There are many people who camp through the winter. They take advantage of this time for hunting, ice fishing on our lakes or the nearby Saginaw Bay, girls’ weekends, family holiday celebrations (instead of hosting at home), birthday and anniversary weekends, and more.
Outdoor Adventures has created some fun fall and winter traditions of its own and we love when lots of people join us! Thanksgiving dinner at Lake Shore Resort, Santa visiting both Lake Shore and Saginaw Bay, New Year’s Eve parties at both Lake Shore and Saginaw Bay are all fun times you don’t want to miss!
As you start to plan out the holiday time that is important to you, your family, and your friends, consider starting a new, fun tradition: make reservations for a cabin or a campsite and spend some time with us! For the holiday dinners, dances, and special guest visits, you could just come to visit for the day!
Whether you choose to make us a part of your fall and winter fun or you choose to stick to the traditions you’ve established over the years, just remember that we’re thankful for YOU and excited for the new year that’s coming and all that it will bring with it!
