Spring is just starting to pop here at the lake, but that isn’t stopping us from thinking ahead to those long, hot, and glorious days of sunshine and fun. We are full steam ahead planning and anxiously waiting for those sweltering days.
Looking for a great summer location? Then consider taking a look right here. Sullivan Lake is a great local hangout for boaters of all types. Zip around the lake on a tube or ski, relax while you cruise your pontoon around, or even kayak in the early morning or evening. If you choose the calmer hours you might just catch a glimpse of a resident Bald Eagle or two, or perhaps an Osprey swooping down for a meal! There are several coves that offer safe ‘idle only’ areas where you may anchor your boat and go for a swim. Don’t have a boat? Rent one from the Park! Our staff will be more than happy to assist you with the process and information for availability.
Whether you want the thrill of the wind through your hair as you bump along or you prefer the lounge and laze style of boating, this lake has opportunity for both. I promise you will love the boating community that continues to congregate year after year. There are boaters who haven’t missed a summer visiting the lake since the opening in 1968. If that isn’t testimony enough for the fun had and the memories made here, I don’t know what is? The community that surrounds Sullivan County Park and Lake is truly one of a kind and makes the appeal of the lake more special.
Maybe boating really isn’t your thing or not really an option. That is completely ok! We have you covered for that too. The beach is also open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and offers a great place to cool off on the hot days. The beach is a favorite for the younger ones who love to wade and play in the sand. It’s a favorite for mom too since it offers a safe and inexpensive way to entertain the kids for hours while making fun summer memories to last a lifetime. It really is a great family friendly spot to relax for the day. Pack a picnic and enjoy lunch and snacks under one of our beautiful shade trees at the picnic area overlooking the beach area and lake. Even if you don’t have little ones don’t let that deter you from coming and cooling off. Our staff and generous volunteers are dedicated to keeping the beach in tip top shape so it is ready when you are.
