Summer Season and Robin Lake Beach

Glistening lakes, warm sun, and the bluest skies: this is Summer at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Beach activities burst with energy. Hiking and biking trails offer moments of peace. Awaken to the sound of nature, then soar through the trees, bask in the sun, or say hello to a curious bird. Relax at the spa, then enjoy an evening at a special event, or in your private cottage. The perfect place for Summer getaways – connect at Callaway, and soak it all in.

During Summer, Robin Lake Beach is the star of the season. A variety of beach activities await, from water skiing and tubing to action-packed Aqua Island. Or, just put your toes in the sand and relax – there’s simply no wrong way to spend your time at Callaway.
