Activity Areas


The waterfront is a great activity center that provides several activity options. Enjoy a nice swim in the lake, some fun on our trampoline, or try your luck on our iceberg. Maybe you would rather go for a canoe or pontoon ride. A landing overlooking the waterfront provides a great place to enjoy a sunset and nice fire.
