Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Veterans on the Lake Resort, a not-for-profit organization will provide a barrier-free setting for a memorable outdoor recreation experience for disabled persons, with priority to disabled veterans, veterans, their families, friend and supporters; designed “WITH VETERANS IN MIND”, recognizing what they have contributed to and sacrificed for our nation.


Our Vision

Veterans on the Lake Resort will become a national recognized, year-round, financial sound, resort for disabled veterans (their survivors and survivors of members deceased in service) disabled general public, service members, and veterans and their families. Veterans on the Lake Resort emphasize quality barrier-free, educational programs with emphasis on veteran’s camaraderie in a wilderness lake setting.


Purpose & Benefit

Veterans on the Lake Resort (VOTLR) was charted as a facility to supplement and enhance the lives of disabled veterans and their families. While the Department of Veterans Affairs may spend millions of dollars to treat veterans, VOTLR believes more can be done to help veterans heal from the pain and suffering they endure.
