The resort has a small sandy beach furnished with many plastic
andirondack-style chairs, a large swimming area with raft and water see-saw.
There is also a lodge for gathering at the bar or the many game tables
where you can socialize witht he other guests, many of whom book the same

cabins. But if the setting and the price are more important to you,
you'll be happy with Jansen's.
