At Golden Valley Lodge we want to make sure our campers enjoy plenty of delicious and nutritious food. Our menus are designed by our in-house chef who delivers home-style, fresh, great tasting food that both students and adults love. We can also work along-side your individual requests to provide specialty cultural and dietary needs. We can also successfully meet the needs of campers with food allergies. Furthermore, community and weekend guests can also request a self-catering option.
