Land Lovers
If you get a little too water-logged, come ashore. Race your buddy in a human “hamster” ball around our inflatable track. Children can hop around on several inflatable bouncers, or just bask in the sun at Sierra Beach, build a sand castle, play on the playground, or fly a kite. BLORA’s paintball course, archery range, nature and mountain bike trails will be open the entire weekend as well.

Bring your lawn chair or blanket and spread out on the sand and enjoy the show under the stars or, plan to spend the night, primitive tent sites to full hook-up RV sites and cottages are available to rent.
