Swimming at the Lakeside Pool

What could be better than enjoying a first-class swimming Pool overlooking the Lake during the middle of a hot summer?

The Club’s 200,000-gallon, heat-controlled, U-shaped Pool features one of the area’s few remaining diving wells with two diving boards.

  • A Zero-Degree Entry perfect for young children and beginners.
  • Six regulation swim lanes providing the perfect environment for morning lap swimming and Club swim meets.
  • A friendly, but trained and Red Cross Certified lifeguard staff

  • The complex includes clean and safe Kids’ Locker Rooms
  • Shade umbrellas located around the Pool, comfortable chaise lounges, and several dining tables for Pool-side Bar and Ala Carte Menu service.
  • A kid-friendly Snack Shack offering summer food favorites is also available.

Open every day during the summer from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Pool also stays open for our Midnight Swims once a month during the summer. Other traditional events each year include our Father’s Day Build-A-Boat Race, along with post-Swim Meet parties and the summer holiday parties.

Lake Activities

The centerpiece of the Club is its member-owned 1.5-mile long, 200-acre spring-fed lake. One of the largest natural lakes in the state.
Members enjoy kayaking, sailing, fishing, and pleasure boating plus spectacular views from the Clubhouse.
Docks are provided for fishing boats, pontoon boats, and kayaks.
Outstanding fishing abounds year-round. The waters are naturally abundant with assorted game fish including largemouth bass, muskie, northern pike, blue gill, and white and black crappie. Some expert fisherman claim that “Congress Lake is the finest crappie lake in North America." The Club also boasts 2 stocked trout ponds near the Club entrance for our youngest fishermen to enjoy.

The Club’s oldest building, the 130-year-old Boathouse, provides fishing boats for rent, bait and tackle, fish cleaning facilities, and a comfortable place to sit and talk about the “one that got away.”
The Club’s staff also maintains the Marina for member-owned boats, sells boat fuel, and provides winterization, cleaning, and storage services.

The Congress Lake Club offers 8 overnight rooms as a convenience for our members and their guests. The recently renovated rooms offer views of the Lake or Golf course. Included with an over night stay includes 24/7 access to our breakfast nook with light refreshments.
