The historic Camp Richardson Resort offers year-round activities. Take advantage of their full-service marina in the summer, and go cross country skiing in the winter. Many people come to spend the day at the sandy beach with a roped off swim area and rent kayaks, canoes, boats or jet skis. You can even enjoy a tasty meal in the lakeside restaurant, The Beacon Bar and Grill. You can’t leave without trying their famous cocktail called the Rum Runner.
