This is my favorite vacation that I have been on. Between water sports, swimming, catching frogs, games, the food, and staff I love it all! I have always found myself wanting to come back every year. Water sports are what we do most probably with knee boarding, tubing, and skiing. I love this vacation so much!

This place is great for getting families together. We had ages from 1 to 75. Kids can roam safely, the lake and pool are great for kids of all ages (up to 75). It has a variety of (non motor) boats that got lots of action. The food was wonderful and the staff was cheerful and helpful. The accommodations were...

The dinner bell is always a hit with the kids. Where else can you line up twenty kids who patiently wait their turn to do something they will never forget? Maybe Disney? We're not that, but ask the kiddos what they remember. Catching minnows, using paddle boats, being free to roam here and there. Thank you so much for choosing...

We are so glad you had a nice time with us. True, we are not the Holiday Inn, but our web site shows and tells everything so there should be so surprises.

We've been going to Oak Cove for over twenty years, and it has always been a treat for us. Our kids absolutely love it and get so excited when we plan a trip. The lake is clean and clear, and it's fun to take a paddleboat or kayak out in it. There are places to fish. (Though I must admit...
