Off our dock, it is quite shallow for swimming, with a gradual incline in depth and a nice sandy bottom. We have two swim rafts; one with a slide to cool off and plunge into the lake, and the other is great to jump off of, but also a haven for sun-worshippers with built-in lounge chairs with cupholders.
There is great fishing whether you want to fish off of the dock or from one of our boats. The species found in our lakes include lake trout, small and largemouth bass, yellow perch, lake whitefish and pike.+ More
