Tennis News Join the fun and excitement on the courts. The week-long Round Robin format begins today. The tournament and the adult clinic will be held at the hard courts. Stop by the Tennis Shop, meet our pro, Adam Kent, and sign up for the Adult and Child Clinics and the Round Robin Tournament.
Resort News The lake is at its warmest, a balmy 71 degrees. It’s a good day for a cooling swim or fun on the trampoline. Cooler still, take a turn at waterskiing and wakeboarding with our Ski Nautique water skiing boat. Yolo paddle boards are new this season and the harbor staff is ready to get you started. Explore in small craft, canoes, kayaks, Sunfish sailboats or small outboards. Reserve the Tidewater seven-person powerboat and venture further out on the lake. Captain Brian’s narrated EScape cruise has been keeping tabs on two eagle fledglings and three osprey youngsters…and their parents, nesting along Otter Creek. Flying lessons have just begun for both families.

What could be better on a hot day than a seat in the shade, great views and an ice cream cone in your hand. The Harbor Store has a treasure trove of goodies for you including soft and hard ice cream, milkshakes and ice-cream novelties, cold drinks, candies galore, water toys, logo tees and plenty more to browse.
