Resort Winterization for 2017
Monday, September 11th - The winterization of the bathhouse, dump station,fish cleaning station and the water cistern at Sun Lake will begin.

Monday, September 25th - Garbage dumpsters will be locked and closed for the season.

The garbage dumpster by the Conference Center will be available for your convenience.

Once the bathhouse is closed the restrooms at the Conference Center will be open 24/7 for your convenience. The door that remains unlocked is at the west entrance facing the parking lot.

The dump station will still be available for dumping but there will be NO water for rinsing out your tank.

As the season comes to an end, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Security checks will continue to be done on a daily basis as weather permits us access to the roads. If there are concerns with your trailer or campsite, we will contact you.

Throughout the winter season, the roads will be maintained up to Sun Lake. All other roads will not be maintained or plowed during the winter months.

At our first significant snowfall,the road leading past Sun Lake will be closed and chained off so that only foot travel is allowed past Sun Lake.

For the safety of our members, depending on forecast and weather conditions, the Resort may lock out the electronic gate and escort  any members off property at that time. No motorized access to the Resort will be allowed until further notice. An email will be sent out  when the Resort is once again accessible.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding road and lake status or check out our website for updates.
Winter Transfer

October 1st, winter transfers will be available for members wishing to move from current campsite to temporary campsite.  If interested, please contact Christine for more details to include winter transfer addendum, pricing and procedures.

Fishing Tips
There is a period of dry-fly activity on most trout streams every fall that rivals the best hatches of spring. It’s a “fall” (as opposed to a hatch) of migrating winged ants, and when these insects are on the water nearly every trout in the river will feed on the surface with abandon. As autumn approaches, ants hatched in their underground colonies sprout wings. All at once, over a period of a few days, these insects fly off to mate and cross-pollinate with ants from other colonies. For some unknown reason, the dying ants are attracted to water and other shiny surfaces, much like mayfly spinners. There is no predicting this opportunity, but experienced fly fishers can feel it in the air, usually on warm, still, moist, soft September afternoons. I often leave my office for the day, smell the air, and know that when I reach my car the hood will be covered with two or three different types of flying ants. Dinner and any other social obligations will have to wait a few days.
