There is plenty to do outside with ample parking. A flat grassy area for those challenging games of Bocce ball or Croquet.
A Stand up Paddleboard and 2 Kayaks are also provided for your use, if you ever can force yourself to leave the "Gin Deck"....
Oh did I mention the Gin Deck...this amazing area juts out of the rocks at the shoreline providing a wonderful sitting area to relax and enjoy your vacation. A Bar fridge is at the dock to keep your drinks cold. The dock ladder provides easy access for deep water swimming and the floating dock is perfect for tying up your small fishing boat should you wish to bring it along. The dockage is not suitable for large boats as it can get windy at times and any boat dockage is done so at your own risk .However, Skootamatta Lake is known for its excellent fishing for Bass and Walleye.
There is no beach , however the floating dock and gin deck provide ample sitting areas and great swimming. The access to the dock is steep and not recommended for the infirm, elderly or unsupervised small children .
