Tubing is another favorite for Shady Rest visitors!

Waterskiing, Tubing, Knee boarding and Wakeboarding on Manson Lake


The water skiing at the resort is available at no additional charge to our Modified American Plan guests. During the season when the European Plan is offered water skiing is available at an additional charge. 

Each afternoon our staff takes our ski boats out to provide hours of skiing, tubing, knee boarding, and wakebaording. The resort has two ski boats to provide hours of excitiment. Our newest boat a 2007 Tige 20i is a terrific boat for those who wish to perfect their skiing or for those who are just beginning to learn. Both boats have a boom for teaching children as young as 3 years old or even adults. Our staff is trained to provide you with instruction and encouragement and we provide all the newest equipment to make your skiing experience enjoyable. 

Over the years water skiing has become the favorite afternoon activity at Shady Rest Lodge.
