So pretty - sunsets were gorgeous! Great for boating, kayaking or just paddle boarding. Kids were having fun just splashing around. Great little beaches just off the main city strip.

We moved to this resort town because of the gorgeous scenery and loads of things to do year round. There is fishing, water skiing and hiking in the summer, ice skating year-round and skiing in the winter.

Always such a great day on the lake. Stop in north beach and enjoy for a bit then head back out on your pontoon to tow kids on inter tubes. Nothing beats it!

As far as I'm aware and been able to find out beach fires are only allowed in fire pits and the pits don't seem to be available on the public beaches. Try checking with the National Forest Service

Not sure on the best location, but there were tons of businesses to choose from. So yes, you can rent all of those things and more.
