Nice staff. Limited kayak styles, but certainly adequate. Beautiful clear water. Beware of afternoon winds.

We rented the largest pontoon boat with my family. 18 of us total including small children and teenagers. We had so much fun! They include the tubing raft and everyone enjoyed it so much. The staff was awesome too. I highly recommend renting from them!

We always rent seadoos and other water crafts here. They are a bit pricey but it's always fun. The staff are always great and friendly too.

We have rented an outboard-powered fishing boat on a few occasions just to cruise around the lake. One time, we reserved it ahead of time, the other time we walked up and were able to rent it on the spot. The boat was nothing special,...More

When they make it easy for you, you love it. With 3 teen boys "on fire" for wakeboard, tubing and any other water activity, this is the place! You have everything included! Just pick your boat (pricey) and ask for everything you may need, they...More

This is our 2nd time renting jet skis here and both times the people have been friendly, helpful and laid back. Also, try the hydro bikes, those were fun too!
