“We took our kids there when they were 8 and 10 years old and now they are 30 and 32 years old. They still talk about all the fun they had there. There is so much for kids to do while we fished. The lake is huge and wished we had a bigger boat. We would still go back.”

“My family gets together for a week here every 5 years. This place is big enough for all of the kids, our kids, our kids’ kids to come! It has great activities to keep everyone entertained. Don’t miss the turtle races 🙂 It has a bar and restaurant and will cater family get-together meals. Usually has some activity at night also. The cabins are always clean but getting old. Not much changes which is probably part of the charm of this place.”

“If you are looking for a resort geared to families this is it. There are cabins of all sizes, geared to accommodate any size group. There is a protected harbor with a boat launch if you plan on fishing. Bait, boat gas and fish cleaning are also available from our harbor attendants from early morning until 8 pm. There are activities for kids of all ages.”

“Very family-friendly resort. Lots of wonderful activities for the kids including fishing contests, tubing, turtle races, tye dying, rock painting, sand digs, and trolley rides, just to name a few! Extremely friendly staff that make you feel like family. The cabins have great lake views!”
