If you want a relaxing experience, join us at the Lake during the week and enjoy less crowds and a slower pace. We still have all the amenities (boat rentals, concessions and camping) but the feeling is a little more laid back. Even parking is free during the week. There is a $5.00 parking fee per vehicle on Saturday, Sunday and all major holidays and special events (cash only please).
