This Week at Grand Lake - June 17, 2024

Summer Officially Begins!

Good Morning!

Alright, summer is almost officially here. You know how I know?

Not because the calendar says so… it’s because I got in my first wake ride of the season yesterday. And it was nice!

So, it’s summer!

We are barreling down on the 4th of July celebration, so keep an eye on the Events page of the website for details on your favorite fireworks shows.

I’m running a little late this morning, so let’s get right to it — here is what you need to know for this week at Grand Lake:

Today’s Sponsor:

Discover your perfect getaway at Monkey Island RV Resort. Nestled just steps away from the lake, this 10-acre resort offers easy access to top-tier fishing, championship golf at Shangri-La, and all of the fun that Monkey Island has to offer. With 70 RV sites and 16 fully furnished cabins available for nightly, weekly, and monthly rentals, comfort and enjoyment are guaranteed.
