There are designated campsites around the lake. These are the areas you dock at night. Be conscious of where you camp if you would like the sunset or sunrise. Most of the shoreline is sheltered by trees.

From the resort, you can rent various motorized water crafts and equipment - I felt it was quite pricey, so bring your own if you can. There are extra fees that you need to be aware of - damage deposit, propane, fuel, and pump-out fees (which I feel are pretty reasonable). Just remember that the fuel is premium fuel, so budget accordingly; I believe we spent $400 on fuel for the week, and we were being conservative. We went in late May - the lake was very cold, and swimming was not popular; however, the lake does warm up, so if you are a swimmer, choose late summer. There are plenty of fishing and hiking opportunities. The boats do have BBQs, stove, fridge, microwave, TV, etc. Just bring the condiments, because line is provided, but you need to bring all your food and spices, etc.
