Stayed in a cabin and it had all the necessities. We had to pack quite a bit for our 2 day stay, but if you forgot anything or ran out of something...you could get it at the store. Swimming, waterslides, diving boards, building sand castles, splash pad.... and that's just at the beach area. Go Carts, Putt-Putt, bouncy houses, and... More

Found out about Longs Resort from our son-in-laws post on facebook. Went up expecting an average staycation. Couldn't have been more wrong. Took my grandchildren up for a weekday stay, Sunday to Friday Vacation package. The cost was $275 for 5 night stay, for up to 2 adults and 3 children. That included camping, swimming, unlimited waterslide trips, Putt-putt golf,... More

Long's Retreat is an amazing place to take your family. Our Co do was tremendously beautiful, quaint, and set atop a hill that gave us seclusion yet let us overlook the entire area. We arose to the view of the different layers of trees in the most vibrant colors glistening in the morning dew as the sun rose. They have... More

I've been coming here for years. Fantastic facility, great people. Everything is always clean and nice, despite recent claims otherwise. Lots of fun things to do and really pretty layout, with hills and a lake.

My fiance and I love coming out whether we have the kids with us or not. This is our 3rd season there and we call it our home... More

As we traveled the 1.5 hours from Dayton ohio to Long's retreat, I loved seeing the city behind us and the country in front of us. Farm fields and winding road abounded as we got closer to our destination. We found a neighbor selling firewood on the side of the road $5 a wheelbarrow, it was a great deal. Once... More

I grew up going to Longs Retreat, and to be able to take my kids back was a wonderful experience. The staff was so nice, and made us feel like family. From Swimming, Sliding, Go carts, putt-putt, canoes and just relaxing around the campsite everything was exactly what we needed. I have to give a shout out to the life... More

There are many activities to do at Longs retreat from swimming, water slides, go carts, and putt putt golf. There are camping facilities for campers and cabin dwellings. Make sure you plan to spend the day, if your not camping.

Very good time. Eric was so helpful and gracious with all of our off the wall questions. All amenities you could ask for, just wish there was better hiking around. The kids loved swimming and the go karts of course.
