What should I wear?

 Lake Shawnee  can result in cool nights so even though it is nice during the day, it may get chilly at night so dress in layers. Also, you are coming to an outdoor event so please don't wear your best clothes and shoes.  Lake Shawnee's property does consist of mostly grass.  We try to keep the pathways covered with sawdust, gravel or hay but with higher traffic volume and rain could result into slightly muddy pathways. Wear appropriate footwear.  
Can I bring my kids?​​

Sure. you will have to be the judge of weather your child will be to sceared or not.
If I can't make it due to weather, what happens?​​

If you call at least 1 day before your tour, we may be able to reschedule your tour to a later date.
