Visitor Policy

  • Visitors are welcome. Please send in your visitor plans with your payment in full. VISITORS WHO RENT OTHER ACCOMODATIONS IN THE AREA DO NOT HAVE BEACH PRIVILEGES. After all, Oak Beach pays the higher taxes for the lake front and no one wants an overcrowded beach.
  • Visitors may stay overnight provided the sleeping capacity of the cottage is not exceeded.
  • Exceeding Cottage capacity with tents and campers is not allowed. (or no one would rent a cottage, right?)
