Family reunions - leveraging the wisdom of crowds

We are starting to think about a family reunion for all the decendents of my parents. It will be in 2014. We'll have about 35 people. We normally spend about a week together. There are six couples. The grandchildren range from born in 2011 to born in 1990.

I'm looking for suggestions. What types of venues have worked well for you?

State parks are great! They have nice picnic areas/pavilions. Just plan for a time of year that's not too hot or cold.

No suggestions, but more power to all of you!!! I could not spend the week with my siblings without Valium and a promise to go someplace to recuperate after that week. There are two factions, and splits and divides in those.

A very large cabin in the mountains might be doable. We had a good time with around 50 relatives in one in Colorado last summer.

Thanks for the suggestions.

It is starting to look like we'll be in one or more cabins up in the mountains.

Dual Role Grandma - sorry to hear about the factions in your family. That would be rough.
