We rented a boat and a tube for a few hours, had a great time. The staff was super friendly. A pleasurable experience. Came back the next day again for more. Prices were fair.

Be careful with this business. Boat was moldy ( took pictures) and boat never worked right. Be prepared to waste at least an hour or longer getting on the lake and then docking when you are done. Maybe it was a busy day but overall...More

First, the good, what little there is: The kids who work there are great. They know the lake, give great safety advice, and understand customer service. Their boss, however, is the opposite. Foul mouthed, rude, belligerent. Not a kind word for anyone. Our boat was...More

He treated us very badly and more reviews are being posted supporting what I’m claiming he did. It’s not just what with us, he’s treating many people the same way.
