The propane for heat is supplied each shack includes a generator with gasoline and a restroom with RV Toilet.

We offer multispecies spots to make the most of your trip, during the day you will have a chance at bluegill, crappie, or perch as well as Pike and Bass. When the sun goes down the walleyes typically move in and set lines with a light or alarm to notify you of a bite is the go to but jigging will also produce!
