What is included in our membership?
- All “paddling” activities are included for members. Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are available for member use on a first come, first served basis. We will provide all equipment necessary.
- A sand volleyball court and 3 miles of hiking trails are also available as a part of your membership.
How many boats do you have available for members?
- 20 Stand Up Paddleboards
- 20 Kayaks (16 solo kayaks and 4 tandem kayaks
- 4 Jon Boats (available for an additional fee)
Why do you charge for fishing?
- We have invested money in stocking the lake with a large assortment of fish, and we invest in feeding them through the off season. So we do need to charge a nominal fee for this activity. It is $5.00 per day, or $100 per person for unlimited fishing until the end of November.
Where can I fish?
- You can fish from the pier or from a Jon Boat. No fishing is permitted from the bank.
What kind of fish are in the lake?
- The lake is stocked with Readear Sunfish, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass and Catfish.
Why do you charge for Jon Boats but not Kayaks or Stand Up Paddleboards?
- The Jon Boats have electric motors that require more significant maintenance than the paddle sport options.
How do I participate in lakefront fitness classes?
- You purchase a lakefront class pass, and are issued a punch card.
- The class pass is $100 and covers 12 classes and can be any combination of Open Water Swim Training, Paddle Fitness, or SUP Yoga.
- Class reservations must be made on-line and are available on a first come, first served basis.
- Lakefront Classes are running through Labor Day.
Can I bring a guest to a lakefront class?
- Yes. Your guest must purchase a facility access “guest pass” AND a 1 day lakefront class pass.
If I bring my own equipment do I still have to purchase a class pass to participate in a lakefront class?
- Yes. Because of the limited instructor to participant ratio, a class pass is required.
Why do I have to purchase a personal equipment permit to bring my own?
- Your equipment is required to meet specific standards in order to be utilized on the lake and takes staff time to inspect and approve. It also requires a “dip” to ensure we are not cross contaminating our lake with invasive species from other waterways. It requires staff time and attention and therefore has a nominal fee.
I am a “Nationwide” member. Do I have access to the Lakefront and the activities?
- Yes. All YMCA members have access.
