I love this place. Have been members for many years. Kids grew up there. Swimming, fishing, sailing and many cookouts. Mountain biking trails are fun. Not too steep. Challenging but safe and enjoyable.

We gathered here for a family reunion and the place is beautiful. We had it catered but you could also have a bbq. The place was very clean. Enjoyed our visit there and plan to do it again. Kid friendly and also swimming.
