monarchIt doesn’t get much better than being at the lake, feeling the warm breeze, and soaking up the vibrant sun on a beautiful Summer day in the Lincoln Lakes Area.

Relax at a resort or campground on one of our picturesque lakes where you can canoe, kayak, or pontoon on the quiet waters. Enjoy a peaceful walk or bike ride among majestic pines. Unwind on the beach or just rest in a shaded hammock breathing the clean, fresh air.

Play 9 or 18 holes of golf on a local championship golf course or one of several courses in a 30 mile radius of Lincoln.
