We took our kids ages 3, 5, and 7 to Oak Cove this weekend. We played on the beach - swimming, paddleboating, paddle boarding, and fishing most of the time. There are so many amenities in the beach and we had plenty of space to run around. Breakfast and dinner was delicious and so convenient with little ones. Once they... More

I just returned from a family reunion at Oak Cove and don't have enough great things to say about it! We had about 40 people from California, Colorado and Michigan--and it was everyone's first time at Oak Cove. The accommodations were great, and the food was spectacular. We have rented lake houses in the past and coordinating food for 40... More

Charming family oriented resort with kayaks, paddle boards, game room, canoes, and paddle boats. The hosts are delightful and the food seconds encouraging Midwestern fair. This is lake side and you can choose to stay in the main house or in the redone fishing cabins.
