For those who wish to be closer to nature, or to accommodate larger groups for overnight stays, tent and RV camping is also available.
While the lodge is spectacular, it is only home base for all of the outdoor adventure. With waterfront views and beach access, the lodge provides a front row seat to all the action. The crystal-clear waters make perfect for swimming, moreover, water slides and rope swings provide the opportunity to add excitement to the average dip in the lake. Guests also have access to kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for lake exploration, but the literal floating volcano man-cave takes lake recreation to a new level. The floating Volcano dock is one of a kind. Inside, the man cave contains a flat screen television, a shower, and glass floors for ultimate underwater viewing.
The beach has no shortage of leisurely activities either. Guests can shoot around on the basketball hoop in the lake, play beach volleyball in the sandpit, or engage in the numerous yard games available. The VIP dock offers a chance to explore underwater habitat thru an underwater snuba system. Tethered to a 30 foot cord and regulator guests can feed and interact with the fish and jump on the underwater trampoline.
We have to say though, the best part of Norris Outdoor is the price.
