We rented wave runners. No issues and a great time. The machines are in outstanding condition and have plenty of power. The lake is beautiful and I always felt safe. The staff was friendly. A well run operation.

Great for novice renters. We did the 8 hour pontoon rental with tubes. Great day on the lake with no boating experience needed. We had 14 people and it was a fabulous day on Silver Lake. Needed more sunscreen.
