Sunny days, good times, and a laid-back vibe

Summers at the lake are a bit of a ritual around these parts. The trek from the city, cresting over the hill into town, and spotting that first glimpse of the water - "I see the lake!" Opening up the old cabin and figuring out what's changed since the last time you were here. This summer, learn to wakesurf. Spend more days with your toes in the sand and your nose in a book. Disconnect to find more togetherness. All you need for a good time and a lifetime of memories is friendly people, the great outdoors, and a little freshwater. Welcome to the lake!
