Join us daily for a plethora of non-motorized lake activities that are sure to keep you entertained for hours at our resort. Our Yolo Boards are an easier to use version of the standup paddle board. They are sturdy and fun to maneuver around Lake Oconee. They are also a great way to strengthen your core muscles while on vacation. Jump in a canoe and paddle leisurely around Lake Oconee - you just may see Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons or Striped Bass jumping out of the water! If you are looking for more speed than the canoes, try our single and tandem kayaks. But be careful they are easier to flip! If your legs are ready for a work out, try our pedal boat. It can accommodate 2 people and are a favorite of cyclists.
