St. Noel Center


St. Noel Retreat and Conference Center - Camp OndessonkOpen all year, St. Noel Retreat and Conference Center is the perfect place to get away for the weekend, host a retreat or youth group, or just enjoy the beauty of Camp Ondessonk and surrounding Shawnee National Forest without having to “rough it”.  The St. Noel Retreat and Conference Center is a modern, climate-controlled facility with nine hostel-style rooms and meeting/dining space in the basement as well as a kitchenette and a common sitting area/library.  The building has audio/visual equipment and free WiFi.

  • Hostel-style, climate-controlled guest rooms with private bathroom and free WiFi.
  • Banquet/meeting/dining space/kitchenette.
  • Year-round programs & activities.
  • On-site hiking and biking trails and nearby access to the Shawnee National Forest, River-to-River Trail, and Tunnel Hill State Bike Trail.
  • Several lakes &  ponds for fishing.
  • Nearby state parks, wilderness areas, and wineries.
