My family and I have been vacationing at the NASWA Resort for just about 40 years. I have been unhappy over the last few years with the lack of attention paid to the room I stay in and additionally the customer service. Recently, I wrote an email to let them know I would not be coming back this year. And... More

I reviewed the Naswa over the summer about our stay on July 4th weekend. While my complaints from that stay still hold true, I would like to write a new review for the excellent customer service that occurred after. The management from Naswa went out of their way to contact me to discuss my complaints after seeing my post. They... More

Love this place! Tiki bar and beach area and grilling area. Cottages are cute. Not upscale. There are boats to take out around the lake area. The Tiki bar often has live music. The cottages are cute, but not luxurious. Great place to stay for the money.

Thanks for your kind words. For over 78 years the NASWA has attracted boaters from all over. Our Resort has approximately 50 boat slips and 1,000 feet of beach frontage. Sitting on the deck of your room, or on the porch of your cottage, watching the boats go by in the Channel is a great way to spend an evening!... More

A visit to the Naswa Resort is being where so much of the relaxing boating, beaching action is. Great spot for people watching - food and drink - sitting with your feet in the water. The Naswa Resort is central to all this great lake region has to offer. We rented a small cottage and loved sitting on the porch... More

Before we headed to the Naswa for Labor Day weekend, we were a bit skeptical about how we would find the experience. Given the age of the resort, we weren't sure how it would be. I even went so far as to pack bedding just in case! Needless to say, I shouldn't have been concerned (or packed the extra bedding)... More

My boyfriend and I went the weekend after labor day and it was great, probably a little calmer than the summer months, but the resort was great. The prices are worth it, and the breakfast wasn't too expensive, we even got free mimosas. Only downside was we were never sure what time the nazbar would close, since when we asked... More
