Mother Nature provides most of the entertainment at our resort and surrounding area. We offer a small private beach with picnic tables, and fire pit. We recommend wearing water shoes due to the rocky approach into the lake. Fishing gear and license are available nearby. Sailboat rentals are available at Lighthouse Landing, while other boats such as kayaks, fishing boats, ski boats and pontoon boats are available to rent at nearby facilities.

Take the kids horseback riding at Wrangler's Campground in LBL or play miniature golf at Maggie's Jungle.
