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.
