Yes, cabanas #A-1 – #A-4 are closest to the frog slide. These are good areas for families who want to keep an eye on their kids while playing. We also have a large common use dock near the water slide for all guests to use. Our “K” cabanas are not recommended for groups with children as they are located out on the water.

Is there a place to dock our boats?

Yes, though each cabana has its own dock we try to limit dock boating to the larger docks closest the main part of the lake to keep the rear side of the island more swimmer and kayak friendly. You are free to use these docks at no additional cost during your stay. Cabanas #A-10 and #A-11, #B-10# and #B-11 as well as #C-1 – #C-6 are best for those wanting to bring their own boat as they are closest to our larger docks.
