Photos from here actually represent about an 8 year span. I sorted
through the albums and picked about 60 images from over the years.
It's interesting to watch people grow up in some of the photos,
or how many friends have passed through the campground over the
years. It was actually kind of a nostalgic flashback for me to go
through all the images.
I always did enjoy riding those tubes into hard corners. Of course,

Everyone had something they enjoyed, and Dad always enjoys his
walleyes. Of course, he also likes cooking his walleyes.
Naturally Dad isn't the only one who can fish. A night we would
sneak down to the marine where the dock lights flooded the waters
with light all night long. There it was easy to catch very large
carp thanks to these fish being hand fed Subway sandwich bread and
fish food from gumball-style vending machines. They came in packs,
and setting a hook into them was pathetically easy. On an ultra
light rod and 6lbs test monofilament and nice 15 - 20 minute fight
would quickly ensue. Here is Cameron posing with one that he was
able to wrestle onto the dock.
We gathered at the lake for any number of reasons or celebrations.
I was engaged here. Noelle was married here. My parents celebrated
their anniversary here. And every year, we would watch the fireworks
from our boat(s). Just before dusk boats would gather into the south
bay and prepare for the fireworks. By the time it was dark enough
for fireworks you could almost walk across the bay.
