Palmer Lake Lodge is situated on 2.5 acres with 300+ feet of lake front. The local road to Loomis divides the property, with the lake on one side and the lodge on the other. The beach is made of small smooth and flat stones. It is shallow enough for small kids to wade/swim safely close to shore but deep enough to allow for a boat tie-up off shore.
