Picnic tables and shelters surround a small lake where visitors can rent aquacycles and fishing boats during warmer months. Docks are available for anglers, and children will enjoy looking for beaver dams from the observation deck. Eight rental cottages face the golf course, all with screened porches, fireplaces and televisions.
