Our family was first consumed by BRL back in 1961

Our family was first consumed by BRL back in 1961. Mom had seen an ad from AAA that promoted the lodge. Since we had a load of kids back then and Mom's best friend the Kriegers as well, they decided to give it a shot. 52 years later, still members of the Diliberto Family and the Krieger family enjoy the 4th of July week.

Every Year More Memories!

I started going to Black River Lodge in 1957 with my parents and grandparents until 1966. Dropped back by in the summer of 1969 to see Bill Onder (KC Jones) when I got back from the US Army. In 1988 my wife asked me where I used to vacation when I was a kid....I replied Black River Lodge!
