Oakwood Resort is located just three hours from Chicago, Indianapolis and Grand Rapids, making it the ideal location for visiting the midwest. Discover the beauty and traditions of lake life and sense of community at our locally owned and operated resort. Whatever your reason for visiting us, we look forward to making you part of the Oakwood Resort family. Our associates are anticipating welcoming you and then welcoming you back...again and again!

We're not the "Oakwood Resort" that we were 20 years ago! Many remember attending church camp & retreats at the property. While we do still host such groups, we also enjoy hosting weddings, receptions, corporate celebrations, meetings & other events. We're family- friendly with a lot of FREE outdoor recreational options for our guests. If you haven't visited recently, we'd love to welcome you back ~

We truly apologize, but due to circumstances beyond our control, the Regatta planned to take place on Lake Wawasee is now going to take place on Indian Lake in Ohio. We hope they consider our amazing resort in the future - let's all keep our fingers crossed!
