This month’s blog series will highlight some of Effingham’s most cherished spots for recreation, and where’s a better place to start than Lake Sara?
Lake Sara offers several fun activities for the community, like fishing, swimming, boating and more. Enjoy a picnic under the pavilions, or take the kids to the playground overlooking the lake on the east end.
Camping is available within walking distance of the lake at Lake Sara Campground and Anthony Acres Resort–both very close to the beach! Across from Anthony Acres is Cardinal Golf Course, an 18-hole course that borders the lake, making for a scenic and exciting golf outing. Just minutes away is Fore-Way Challenge Golf, a 9-hole public course with a driving range, putting green and clubhouse.
For those looking to spend some time on the water, visit Larson’s Landing or Bluegill Marina for all your lake-day needs, including pontoon boat rentals, kayak and tube rentals, fuel, food and drinks, bait and tackle and more.
After a long day at the lake, relax and have a nice meal! Larson’s Landing is joined with a new bar and grill called Pinky’s where you can enjoy a scenic view of the lake during dinner and drinks on the large patio area. Bluegill Marina is also joined with their own restaurant, Zona’s on the Lake. Zona’s is another full-service restaurant that promises good times and good food.
