We spent July 4th weekend here. When you book a vacation with a resort on a lake you expect there to be a swimming area and a beach but you won't find that here. Yes they do have a beach and a swimming area but it was roughly the size of our family room. The swimming area was directly behind the boat docks and the boundaries of it were the boat docks themselves. The swimming area is basically shaped like a triangle, walled in on 2 sides by boat docs and the third being the sand beach. There was no room to swim, play, or ride on the ridiculous kayaks they make available for use at the "beach". Walker is a beautiful town and Leach Lake is incredible, just don't waste you time or money at this place, unless your goal is to rent a room at a hotel that you can also dock your boat at. The hotel is old, and yes that does add to it's charm, but that basically means that it doesn't offer the many amenities that modern hotels do. FYI, it is 3 times faster to use the stairs to get to your room than to wait the 90 seconds it takes to call the elevator then ride it up to your floor. The one thing I do commend them on is their indoor pool. They have a heated pool, a cool pool, and a hot tub. It was nice in there, but we wanted to be outside on a beach and we did not get that at Chase on the Lake.
