While fishing and swimming in the pond is prohibited, guests at the lodge will be near several large and pristine lakes in the area, like the Niemackl Lakes. Guests can visit the beaches at Niemackl Lake Park for swimming, boating, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. The park has several nature trails snaking around the lake and through acres of grassland for hiking, biking, and viewing wildlife like deer, beavers, and bison. Art lovers can view unique iron sculptures at the park, and families can take their children to the playground for a few hours of fun.
