BACKYARD, LAKE, AND DOCK: There is a large flat enclosed backyard suitable for frisbee, baseball and football throwing, badminton, croquet, and bocce ball. Bring your own sports equipment. The gate exiting the yard can be secured with a lock, especially to protect the little ones. Out on the dock, fish for trout, crappie, blue gill, and an occasional bass and catfish. The owner of the house caught a 10 lb. catfish off the dock that made the BIG BEAR GRIZZLY newspaper. Consider bringing a blowup kayak or jet skis. At the time of this writing (May 2019) the water depth at the dock was four feet. If you would like to bring your own boat, you can put it in the lake at one of the many dock ramps and if the lake level at our dock (depends on the summer heat) is too low for it, we will pay for the cost of a slip at a nearby marina. Currently lake level is great!
