Testimonials

Love going there every year. Gloria K.
Staff made our use of the pavilion easy-especially the man who supplied the key on a Saturday.  Thanks so much! T. Glasgow
Everything was just great.  Thank you.  Jim B.
My grandparents had 18 children.  With children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren it was too much to have a reunion at one person's home.  So Shoaff Park Riverlodge Pavilion has become our "home away from home" since at least 1964.  We continue the traditions of our Thanksgiving get-togethers to this day.  Thank you so much for maintaining the Riverlodge! It always looks great.  The Fusselman Families
Thank you we all had a good time.  Barbara N.
Excellent service.  And we will use you again.  And the Pavilion was nice. Mike and Betty C.
I plan on doing this again next year.  I was very pleased.  Richard M.
We were amazed at the cleanliness.  Such a great place.  Thank you.  B. M. Robrock
