The New Germany Lake House boasts a magnificent view of the lake through its northeast facing windows. The Lake House features year-round restrooms with shower facilities, a staff office and the Black Forest Room which houses the New Germany Snack Bar and Gift Shop.
Open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, the Snack Bar features sodas, hand-dipped ice cream, hot and cold snacks, trail maps and a nice selection of gift and souvenir items. The Snack Bar is also open on weekends and holidays throughout the winter when there is enough snow to accommodate cross country ski rentals.
