The concession stand will be open summer hours, daily from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Watch for an update via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on boat rentals, as they are dependent upon the lake level and access to the docks. Bike rentals will be available.

Swimming will be allowed within the buoys at the beach.

Isolated, intermittent closures could occur in the next few weeks to finish up the last pieces of the resurfacing project. We ask for your patience and cooperation during this time.
