First off, this is ridiculously expensive. The staff is probably the rudest group of people I've ever met. Especially the female owner. Drinks are a total rip off. I think they water down their vodka and charge you arm and a leg for it. The...More

The lake is beautiful, but at $15 a person to get in--- forget it! There are other free options in the area that are better worth your time. Plus, the service isn't that great (crabby window people), and the locker rooms are just mediocre.
