Fitness Center / Indoor Pool / Sauna

The full-size graduated-depth heated pool is ideal for the entire family! You can relax and enjoy therapeutic benefits of the spacious hot tub or "sweat it out" in a cedar-lined dry sauna. Inside the well-equipped and spacious fitness room, you'll find a 15-station Universal Gym, treadmills, step machines and stationary bikes to help get you in shape or keep you in shape. And when those muscles get a bit tired, you can always make an appointment with a registered certified message therapist who can work the kinks out and soothe any aches and pains. Afterwards, relax with family and friends in the fireside lounge area with your favorite beverage and enjoy a golden sunset and beautiful views of the golf course.


Lake Forest Recreation Area offers a sporty 9 hole golf course nestled on gently rolling terrain among towering trees on beautiful Voyageur and Eagle Lakes. The golf club offers a full service pro shop, lessons, custom clubs and repair, twilight rates and rental clubs. The clubhouse has a cocktail lounge and serves broiled sandwiches which can be enjoyed on a large deck overlooking Eagle Lake. For more information or to reserve a tee time call 715.479.4211
