Resort Activities

resort-activitiesFISHING
Musky, northern pike, bass, and walleye dominate the game fish in Little St. Germain Lake. Crappie, bluegill, pumpkinseed, and perch are abundant pan fish. Good catches of fish are made throughout the year. The best fishing is generally from mid-May through June. December ice fishing can be excellent. For those of you who may need some assistance in catching fish, we can furnish you with names of guides. Guides offer you valuable fishing tips and are often successful when many fisherman are not.

- A fish house* is available for cleaning your fish during the warm weather months.

SWIMMING
The lake is ideal for swimming from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Our sandy beach is approximately 12′ by 50′. Floats mark the shallow water area. The swimming area has no steep drop-offs and has a sand bottom. Swimmers can use the swim raft* for sunbathing, diving, etc.

BOATING
We have several 14′ rowboats* available for our guests. 8 HP outboard motors are available to rent as well as 6 pontoon boats for those desiring a leisurely cruise around the lake or for some comfortable fishing. If you bring your own boat, the state’s free boat ramp is located on Tobin Lange Rd off Birchwood Drive, approximately 2 miles from the resort. Be sure to bring your fenders or boat bumpers if you bring your own boat. There are no size restrictions on the lake. Deep V hulls over 20′ will have to be careful in certain areas of the lake. The average lake depth varies from 5′ in No Fish Bay to 54′ in West Bay. Our bay averages a depth of 14′. Check out the boat/motor rental page for current rates.

WATERSKIING
During the summer season, June 17th to August 19, waterskiing* is offered to our guests. Countless persons have learned to waterski at the resort. Others have learned to slalom ski, etc. We start at 9:30AM Monday through Friday (weather permitting) and pull until we’re out of skiers. Each skier is given one turn each day. You’ll be able to show off your waterskiing skills behind our Malibu ski boat!

CANOEING
Two canoes* are available for our guests to use at no additional charge. The inlet to the lake, Muskellunge Creek, is located about 1/2 mile down our shoreline. The creek offers easy, peaceful canoeing. Most of the land along the creek is county land and is all wilderness.
