Winter at the Lake

Better bundle up! It's time to get out there

Winter Weekends

Our favorite ways to spend a winter weekend at the lake include good friends, good food, and lots of cozy winter wonderland activities. Glide out on the Lake Skating Rinks and wander through the Winter Village light show after dusk. And of course, who can say no to a wood burning fire, indoors or out!
Coming Up This Weekend

Ice Fishing

Ice fishing is a can't miss experience you have to try this winter! Peek out across the ice to see the collection of hand-made ice fishing huts along the lake. Check out rentals in town and see what you catch! Sylvan Lake is home to Whitefish, Walleye, Perch, Burbot, and Northern Pike.
