On-site Recreation

Chetola Resort offers so many ways to stay in shape and have fun indoors at the Highlands Sports and Recreation Center, outside at Chetola Lake and on our many trails. There's something for all ages and abilities, from challenging fitness classes to kids camps, tennis, swimming and much more!

Our pool will be closed for maintenance Dec. 3-10. Chetola guests will be the pool at the Meadowbrook Inn, located across the street from Chetola. To gain access, guests must check in at the front desk of the Meadowbrook Inn and present their Chetola registration card. We apologize for the inconvenience as we continue to make improvements to the property.
