The people here will make sure you know what you are doing on the water. They are very helpful with getting you set for a good time on the water. The watercraft are in great condition.

Good place to hang out for a couple of hours. Feed the fish hanging around the docks, or rent a boat for the day. One of the bigger rental spots on the lake. Hang out with friends or family. Kids will enjoy the attractions.
