Birdies for The Bird House

Birdies for the Bird House is a fundraiser in memory of Teresa O’Neil. The Bird House was home to Teresa in her final days after a long off-and-on battle with breast cancer. Our family was extremely impressed with the passion, care, and hospitality that came while Mom stayed at The Bird House. As a token of our appreciation, and to help future families, this fundraiser was created in 2017. All proceeds from Birdies for The Bird House are given to The Bird House.

Holiday Lights at the Lake

Make Holiday Lights at the Lake your favorite holiday tradition as you drive or walk through West Overlook Campground. This annual community event boasts just over one mile of large and animated lighting installations including a dazzling animated tunnel and many glittering arches and holiday characters. Curated by our committee with the help of a professional lighting company, Winterland Inc.
