  1. My family stayed there one summer in the early ’50s. Mom & Dad had a cabin separate from us kids. I remember the water being very clear, the fishing rather disappointing — the water was so clear we could see the fish just hanging there, but no matter what we dropped or dragged in front of their noses, they weren’t interested.

    I don’t recall the float with the diving tower described there, but my folks became good friends with one or two other couples on the tennis courts.

    The place was run by The Skipper and Miss Lou. I was quite young, so I can’t say much about Miss Lou’s culinary skills, but I remember the food was good and there was plenty of it. The dining room overlooked the lake and had huge spiderwebs with huge spiders in the eaves outside. One dinnertime we were enthralled by an epic battle between a spider and a huge hornet.

    Thanks for jogging some old memories.
