Alma Pantelmann was in charge of the restaurant which was located near the shore. Unfortunately, today, there is no restaurant and you must prepare your own food at the campsite.

Not only could you have a wonderful meal over looking the lake, but you could go out on the lake for a boat ride even if you never had a boat. Currently, The County of St. Paul does not provide boat rentals. You need to purchase your own boat and bring it to the lake.
