​Best Places to Host a Family Reunion

Family reunions can be a lot of fun, especially if you find the right place to host them. Wondering where to look? Take the worry out of finding the perfect venue to hold your large family get-together and review our list of top locations across the U.S. below!

1. Southfork Ranch

Often referred to as “The World’s Most Famous Ranch”, Southfork Ranch near Dallas, TX is the perfect place to host your special event. With over 300 acres of groomed ranchland, there’s plenty of space to invite your entire family, including your cousins twice removed. Southfork Ranch can customize your event to fit any style or budget, with options including volleyball, horseshoes, chuck wagon dinners, s'mores and formal dinners at the Ewing Mansion. For more information, or to book your event, contact Southfork today.

2. Parry Lodge

For tons of fun and excitement all around, book your stay at Parry Lodge in Kanab, Utah. It’s a hub for daily adventures near some of the most stunning National Parks. Not up for a National Park tour? Stay at the resort and catch a flick or two at the Old Barn Theater, or roam the hallways to learn more about Parry Lodge’s role in old Western movies (you’d be surprised at how many famous actors have stayed here). While you’re visiting, make sure to stop by Denny’s Wigwam just minutes away from the Lodge to pick up your Western themed memorabilia. Parry Lodge specializes in hosting large groups, so don’t be afraid to contact them with questions.

3. Montauk Resort

Montauk Resort is an ideal spot for families who love to fish. Located in Montauk State Park, Missouri, the resort offers a great home base to rest your head after a long day of trout fishing. You can also enjoy other activities like hiking, biking, and touring around the Historic 1896 Grist Mill. There’s even a large picnic area to host family gatherings; it comes equipped with outdoor grills, playgrounds, and restrooms.

4. Signal Mountain Lodge

Book your Lakefront retreat at Signal Mountain Lodge, located in the heart of Grand Teton National Park. The Lodge offers guided fishing tours, boat rentals, and a scenic float trip. Also, don’t forget about the stunning hiking trails just minutes from the property. Indulge in a delicious meal at one (or all) of our restaurants located on site during your stay, many of which overlook beautiful Jackson Lake.

5. On a Forever Houseboat

A reunion trip on water can be even more enjoyable than one on land. Forever Houseboats offers vessels large enough to accommodate up to three families per unit. Split the cost up evenly and rent out as many boats as you need. With activities such as fishing, kayaking, water skiing and more, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy. To finish off your day as a group, get everyone together for a delicious meal on the beach next to a campfire.
