Watch for birds. You might even see a bald eagle along the boardwalk trail. There’s a short loop and two-mile path.

Roast a marshmallow. On Saturday nights, the lodge has bonfires and all the fixings for s’mores (try the fireplace in the lobby if it’s raining).

Play wallyball. Check out racquetballs, rackets or a volleyball to use in the indoor courts.
