We are still here 43 years and counting working on our third generation of skiers. We consider ourselves a full time year round water sports camp. Our location is on 120 acres with three manmade lakes with slalom courses and jump ramps. We offer instruction for the beginner through the more seasoned waterskier as well as instruction for wakeboarding, wakeskating, wakesurfing and paddleboarding to beginners.
