Mountain bikers travel up hills and down while traditional cyclists pedal over smooth tracks. Teams of volleyball players are leaping and diving lakeside while soccer balls are kicked about on grassy open spaces. Close by canoes and kayaks ride the current on the Huron River. Rented canoes are available at Kent Beach for those who seeking adventure on the water but don’t have their own craft.

Activity is in full swing on any given day. During warmer weather swimmers dive into the lake for some splashing around. Blankets are spread at two sandy beaches, at Kent Lake and Spring Mill pond. Campers get the most out of their time at various campgrounds. Island Lake Rustic Cabins are cozy and quaint. Those that want to rough it can access the remote Island Lake Canoe Campground accessible only by kayak and canoe. When the snow starts to fall is when winter merriment begins.
