Mother Nature's Riverfront Retreat will be closed to the public for the 2016 season. We're going to be busy with rennovations and planning so we can bring our future guests the best facilities, services and activities at the Lake!

Check with us in August for a possible sneak preview and some fun events (if we're ready by then)!

Thank you for another great year! See you in 2017!

A message from me to you:
The Tunnel Dam Garden Center has been in business since 1999. In 2012 we started Mother Nature's Riverfront Retreat and Family Recreation Park which, along with Old Morgan Outfitters, offers float trips, camping, camper rentals, RV hookups, and a full-featured bunk house for large group/family reunions, retreats, etc. Our air conditioned shower house is one of the nicest you'll see here at the lake. We also have a C-Store that offers ice, bait, liquor, general merchandise (bug spray, sunglasses, sunscreen, hats, etc.) and camping supplies for your convenience.

We have constructed an ornamental fish pond to display our beautiful flowers and to delight our customers, so they can sit and enjoy the beauty and serenity of the center. I am proud to announce that we have had several weddings on the bridge that crosses the pond and we have several scheduled for this year.

I have always loved entertaining family and friends. The first time I viewed the Tunnel Dam Garden Center I fell in love with the tranquility and absolute beauty of the place. I felt a great feeling of peace and healing. At one time, I believe this sacred place must have been a gathering spot for local Indians and settlers; you can just feel their presence and an inexplicable peace along the riverfront as you enjoy many views worthy of lingering.
