After last year, this is a welcome site for visitors to Scotty's Island on Lake of the Woods.

If you were out on Lake of the Woods and made a stop into Scotty's Island last summer, you may remember there was little to no beach because of high lake levels.  This year, that's not the case.  Although low lake levels are an issue in some cases, the amount of beach that has emerged and that is available for recreational use is a welcome sight.  I think it looks as though this will be the perfect summer to beach.  Start making your plans now!


Norman beach is quiet right now, but ready to be enjoyed after the long weekend!
