Canoeing on beautiful Katchewanooka Lake
Lake Edge offers so much for our guests – from the peace and tranquility of relaxing with a good book, to taking in water activities and enjoying beautiful Katchewanooka Lake. Some guests enjoy the downtime of unscheduled relaxation – whether it’s on the dock, out on the water, or by the bonfire at night! Others prefer to be on the move – canoeing, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking…the list goes on and on. And wintertime brings many great opportunities for singles, couples, and families looking to get away!
