WE’LL HELP YOU Pack
We have assembled the do’s and don’t of packing to make your trip to Fern the best it can be.
DON’T PACK IT…
LIFE JACKETS FOR SWIMMING
If anyone in your party requires a personal flotation device to swim or if your child is around water and you wish the security of a personal flotation device, please bring your own.
Although we provide pool towels, there may be occasions when we cannot keep up with the demand. If you bring some of your own, to save for these rare times, you will always be covered!
FISHING RODS & TACKLE
If you have that magic lure that gets you the big one please feel free to bring your own equipment for our morning fishing trips or for great fishing around the property.
If you prefer to use your own golf clubs, tennis racquet, basketball, bike and bike helmet, or even your own wakeboard, please feel free to use them here at the resort. We do not have baseball gloves or lacrosse equipment.
EXTREME SPORTS EQUIPMENT
Closed-toe shoes are required for the high and low ropes courses.
LIFE JACKETS FOR BOATING
We provide life jackets for our Dock Start Ski program and for water sports in Fern’s watercraft.
Pool towels may be signed out at the front desk. Used towels must be returned to the front desk to be signed in or to be exchanged for clean ones. ($10.00 fee for non-returned towels)
FISHING ROD AND LIVE BAIT
Kids are welcome to come to the boat/fishing dock to get a stick with string and a hook. If you would like to go on the morning fishing trip and do not have a rod we have limited quantities to borrow (first come, first served). Bait is available free of charge for the boat dock area.
If you do not have your own equipment and would like to try your hand at tennis, golf, or any of the other sports activities on property we have equipment that you can borrow.
We require that Fern Resort markers and paintballs be used for this activity. We also supply coveralls and protective headgear.
EXTREME SPORTS EQUIPMENT
Helmets and harnesses are provided for high ropes. For archery sessions we provide arrows, bows and protective wrist pads.
