We offer cabin rentals for $25 – $50/ night! We have four types of cabins in various locations surrounding the lake! This is the perfect spot for a staycation right on JBER!


We have 3 pavilions at Otter Lake: The Lower Pavilion is located right below Otter Lake Lodge. The Upper Pavilion and the A-Frame Pavilion are located at the Upper Otter Lake Campground.


There are campsites at both the lake and upper campground. Camp sites are first come, first served. There is availability for up to four tents per site.


The lodge is a two-story chalet with a full kitchen and bar over looking the lake. A great venue for parties, weddings, squadron functions, and meetings. There is seating for 168 guests. Bookings are taken up to six months in advance.

“Crystal was amazing and helpful! I had an awesome time on the paddle-board! Good job Crystal!”

“Jenna, Cameron, Crystal, Levi are professional, courteous and have great customer service! I will come back!!”

“My husband and I were here on 17 June 2017 for stand up paddle boarding classes. We had a great experience. The instructor was knowledgeable and willing to let us learn at our own pace.”

“As time passed by the Otter Lake staff was in full contact with me, or someone from my unit. We reserved the Chalet and Pavilion. Although due to the weather we were unable to use the pavilion, we were still able to accommodate everyone (around 60 people) in the Chalet. I would like to thank Levi, Jordan, and John. They all were a tremendous help to making sure our event was a huge success. It will definitely be a place for us to look for in the future. Thank you for a great time and ensuring our event kicked off without a hitch.”
