Looking for cheap family reunion place within 3 hrs of...

Does anyone know of a place...

I wanted to rent a whole bunch of cabins, or a whole bunch of hotel rooms, or Camp group bunk sites like like a retreat site, state park site, cottages, cabins within 3 hour, 2 hr better, drive from Pittsburgh.[Pittsburgh and surrounding areas, Maryland, Lake Erie, West Virginia, etc]

I need to do this very cheaply.

I wanted the place to have a room, area, building you can rent out, or a universal area we can use so I can have a party, bbq, food all night, no tent camping.

Example... having the gathering party 4pm to 11pm on a Saturday, type of thing with food, games, etc, more of picnic style, nothing fancy, nothing like weddings.

Family reunion for older people mostly, more older then younger people would be coming. So no need for places like water parks.

Would like places around to rent canoes, maybe boat, mini golf if anything, maybe horseback, bowling alley, but prefer more outdoor stuff.

Prefer on the water in the woods so we could swim in clean lake or river, looking for summer, 2 nights, Friday to Sunday.

Need all rooms, cabins or cottages beside each other within walking distance.

Need to sleep 50 people.

Maybe 15 to 20 rooms depends on how many to room cabin

Max 100.00 to 150.00 room per night, cheaper is better.

Prefer a couple rooms that allow dogs.

I would consider a couple very large houses, but do not think it would be enough, we need our space and would have to have the houses close to each other.

Any recommadations would be appreciated. Thanks

Had you not said summer, this could have worked for a weekend. It’s not available for partial weeks in the summer. www.deervalleyymca.org/meals-lodging/lodging/

Laurel Hill State Park has 2 lodges you can rent and campgrounds. Again, not sure you can do weekend only for the lodge in summer. https:/…Stay.aspx

Check out snpjrec.com. It's the Slovenians headquarters in Lawrence County (very near to Youngstown too). Beautiful and it might be what you're looking for.

or try Deep Creek Lake - plenty of houses for rent there

In addition to the possibility of a PA State Park lodge/cabins....also look into the West Virginia State Park System. I have stayed at a couple, and they are quite serviceable....nicely kept, decent restaurants. My favorite is Pipestem, but not sure they would be able to accommodate your group. Oglebay should, but as it is another level up on amenities, it may be out of your price range.

Thanks, these are perfect, beautiful, I do not see much trees in Texas besides going to Arkansas. I forgot how beautiful it was around there.

Price for West Virginia state park and Oglebay are perfect for me, I need cheap since I'm hosting and paying for all the rooms, so cheaper is great.

Let's hope they can hold all of us.

Thanks
