What is the swimming and lake like? The depth of the water?

ver032The water is very shallow and ideal for swimming for the first 150ft to 200ft, depending on the month. The slope of the lake is also very shallow – 25 ft out from the shore is only about knee deep for an average adult during August. It is great for swimming and similar activities. To get an idea of the depth you should see this picture of our relatives.

The water is very shallow and nice for swimming, boating, and every possible water sport. It is very clean. The beach itself is also clean, sandy, and private, for the exclusive use of our renters.
