Need A Mid Week Break?
Starting May 18th our "Mid Week Sailing Outings"
begin for those who need a mid week break and can get up to the lake
by 6:30. These weekly mid week outings are great because they occur during the
cooler times of the day when the lake is less crowded and we
generally return to the marina as the sun is setting; a truly
special time to be on the lake. Check our calendar for other
dates and times throughout the summer or call us for reservations.

within excellent ear and eye shot. If you've never experienced a
fireworks show while on the water you've missed the best seats possible.
The reflection of the explosions light up the waters around you and
the percussions of the show echo across the waters.
this annual event occurs the day before July 4th there are no traffic
