You can choose to enjoy your stay at the Highland Lake Resort right on site! Summer activities include swimming in the clean, clear water from the resort's sandy beach. A long dock with bench seating lets parents watch their children in the water, or provides a great place to "catch some rays".Perhaps you want to take out one of the resort's free row boats, canoes, kayaks, or pedal boat for awhile. The lake is teaming with large- and small-mouth bass, brown trout and lake trout, perch, and other species, with temporary fishing licenses available in-town, or online. And nothing beats the view of the lakeside foliage from a canoe on a crisp, autumn morning!
