A stunningly beautiful camp and retreat setting on Clearwater Lake in central Minnesota, Clearwater Forest has been changing lives in God’s woods and waters since 1954.  Come find beauty, peace, renewal, joy, connection and spirit, while enjoying acres of pristine forest and lakeshore. Clearwater is a place to unplug and rejuvenate with the power of nature.

Clearwater Forest has programming available for all ages including summer camp, retreats, family events, senior programs and team-building opportunities.  We host family reunions, small and large group retreats, corporate picnics/events, business meetings and weddings, all year round with a variety of facilities to offer.
