These activities not only provide excellent exercise but also instill a sense of independence and confidence as campers master the art of maneuvering across the lake.


For adventure-seeking campers, sailing offers an exhilarating experience that combines skill-building with teamwork.

At the waterfront, campers can indulge in the timeless activity of fishing. Whether casting lines from the dock or venturing out on a boat, campers develop patience, concentration, and a deeper appreciation for nature as they try to reel in their catch. Fishing also provides a peaceful retreat where campers can connect with their surroundings and enjoy moments of introspection.

Banana Boat and Inflatables

For those seeking an adrenaline rush, the banana boat ride and inflatable area offer thrills like no other. Campers can ride the waves on the banana boat, bouncing and splashing with excitement, or challenge themselves on larger-than-life inflatables like the blob, rocket it, and twin summits Mt. Hood and Mount Baker. These experiences foster camaraderie, laughter, and unforgettable memories.
