Our lake frontage is at lake level.  No steps to the water or docks.  Clamshell Lake warms earlier than the large lakes... so kids are in swimming early in the season.  The lake bottom in the docked off swimming area is sturdy sand.  Look at how clear our lake is!

Our Basketball Court has adjustable hoops so all ages can get into the action!  Meet up with new friends for a friendly game of basketball or come down to shoot baskets solo. We have lots of Basketballs for you to use!
