We are excited to announce the opening of our Old School bnb and bunk rooms. Rooms and small apartments are located in the old Gary High School, right near the in Gary near the trail head. We offer free full breakfasts for those staying in the bob apartments. A riders bagged lunch and dinners can be ordered for all who stay here for additional cost. 
Besides the clean, comfortable rooms and apartments, we have a locked, gated area to park your ATVs overnight. We will shortly have an area to clean your ATV’s. We also have a wonderful private picnic area next to the stream with a firepit, and grill. 

An added bonus is that when you stay here, you are supporting a mission that for 11 years has been helping this former coal mine town of Gary that was devastated when most of the mines closed down or automated. See School for Life website 

Try us out! We are sure you will be glad you did and will leave feeling good that you were involved in helping improve this challenged (improvished, struggling ? ) community.
