Enhance Your Day On the Lake

Create Your Own Oasis

When you’re ready for some down time after splashing around, it’s great to have your own umbrella and lounge chair at the ready. Take a snooze, read a book, or simply take in the views until you’re set to dive back into your next swim session.

Snacks & Beverages

Picnics lakeside are half the fun! Make sure your cooler is packed with some of your favorites before you hit the road, and consider a Freez Pak instead of risking a mushy sandwich on a big bag of melting ice.



Make your dip in the lake all the more fun with swim accessories. Explore the depths with a pair of flippers and goggles, or relax on top of the water with a big floatie or inflatable ring. Keep one eye open though in case you have a floatie poacher in your midsts!
