ST. CLOUD - A great day on the lake just a few hundred feet from downtown is possible at Lake George.

The Lake George Boat House is operated by Outdoor Endeavors at St. Cloud State University. Devan Matthew is the student manager for Lake George Boat House.

She says it doesn't matter who you are, the boat house is great fun for everyone.

"It is a little bit of everyone out here. We get older couples out here, people on dates, kids and their family's come out. It is a good way to entertain (everyone) for the evening and get outside."

While the boat house is famous for it's paddle boats, they also offer opportunites to canoe and paddle board. Matthew says if you don't know how to paddle board, staff at the boat house are ready and willing to teach you.

"We ask if they have done it before. If not, we will show them how to hold the paddle and paddle correctly. We give them tips on how to go straight and how to turn."

The boat house's hours, Memorial Day through Labor Day, are Tuesday - Friday 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The boat house now offers season passes for $25.00.
