If you'll be swimming in the lake with us, and I hope you do, you'll need to take know a few things.

This is a Boy Scout Camp that is used every week or two during the summer. They do a great job of keeping this man-made Lake in great condition.

Here are some simple guidelines to help make your time in the Lake more enjoyable:

All persons swimming in the lake swim at their own risk.
Pay attention to the Water Monitor. Heed warnings. She is there to help you!
Bring a towel.
Wear Sunscreen.
Reapply sunscreen often!
Enter the lake at the beach point. The Water Monitor will be there to help you.
Stay within designated swimming areas. These areas are marked off by ropes or buoys. This area is more likely to be free of weeds and other dangers.
Test the water depth before you dive in. Diving into water that's too shallow may lead to neck injuries or paralysis.
Know your limits. If you are not a good swimmer stay in the shallow area and enjoy splashing around!
Cold water and other conditions on the lake can challenge swimmers. Start out slowly, and don't swim too far from shore.
Protect your feet. Wear water shoes, if you can, to protect your feet from any unknown objects.
Please feel free to bring water toys.
Please do not plan to use a water toy as a swimming aid. Toys are for fun!
If you see any plant and animal life in the lake, stay clear of it.
Have Fun. The weather should be great for swimming... HOT!
