The resort is normally very open, although the summer time is definitely a little busier. We have clean public outdoor toilet facilities for our guests.

They are super friendly and the boat rentals are fishing boats with trolling motors. An excellent place to enjoy quiet surroundings and seasonal frog chorus!! Call 509-710-0889.
