Orange Lake, the namesake of the resort, is an 80-acre lake adjacent to West Village. The lake is next the main check-in and recreation center and West Village main pool complex. The lake includes a beach area with lounge chairs, tether ball, a beach volleyball court, and the boathouse.
The boathouse is the rental area for the main water activities on the lake. These include jet ski rental, mini-boat rentals, paddle boats, and water skiing activities. All of these activities are fee-based with reduced rates for timeshare owners. The prices have increased each year that I have been there, but the jet skis rent for about $40 for 30 minutes. If this isn't something you do on a regular basis, I will promise you that 30 minutes is more that adequate. This is the highest priced rental, all other activities are significantly less expensive.
Fishing is permitted in the lake with proper licenses. There are also multiple other fishing locations in the various ponds that are accessible in all three villages.
