We visited this resort again, this time over the 4th of July. There have been more upgrades since last year and we rented a pontoon and a ski boat. The pontoon was a newly refurbished boat and it was very nice. We took a trip around the whole lake at a slow pace and it took the majority of a... More

Great place to take the kids. My girlfriend and I stayed here. Can't say enough good things about the front desk service and the owner was so nice to us. The rooms in the resort are a lot of nicer than I expected. We're definitely coming back to this place again.
