The Historical Lodge
The original Shady Rest Lodge was built in the '20s. Think weekend fishing and escape from the busy Chicago life. Cocktail hours and smoking rooms. Lifestyles have changed, but the lodge still stands with an air of historical pomp as it serves as a gathering place for relaxing & great conversation.
Clean and safe access to crystal clear Manson Lake. The sandy beach features a shallow shoreline that is perfect for little ones learning to love the water. Read your favorite book in the shade, venture to the raft to catch some rays, or start a game of catch. If you run out of things to do on land, go for a waterski run, kayak to the island, or brave a wild tube ride (unless lazy river is more your speed)!
The Breezy Point Peninsula
An outstanding vantage "point" of Manson Lake. Enjoy a picturesque walk to catch a Northwoods sunset. Hammock while listening to the sounds of water and waves. Bring your fishing pole to cast a few lines. And after you catch a Northwoods sunset, there's a fire pit perfect for roasting s'mores and singing your favorite campfire songs.
Recreation Hall / Courts / Playground
The Recreation Hall is the catch~all place and the place to be. Pool, air hockey, ping~pong, and time to visit and have some stress~free fun. The Courts are a great place for kids to ride their bikes or play a little basketball after monkeying around at the Play Park. And don't forget to gather the family for a little bit of beach volleyball!
