Boat House & Lakeside Deck
One of the best places to view the activities on beautiful Shadow Lake is from the Boathouse Roof or Lakeside Deck. Fishing is permitted; catch and release is recommended. Sunfish, small and large mouth bass are regularly caught by fishing from the Deck or in a boat on the lake. Catch the sunrise if you’re an early bird or relax with a cocktail as the sun sets and the moon rises over the lake. It’s a perfect place to meet friends and unwind.
Kayak and Boat Launch Area
See Shadow Lake from the point of view of our waterfowl or enjoy a day of fishing by launching your kayak or boat from The Point. All watercraft must be registered with the office annually. Personal flotation vests for each “mariner” are highly recommended. If paddling or pedaling your watercraft is not your style, electric motors are permitted. No gasoline motors are permitted on Shadow Lake by Township Ordinance.
Every community has their favorite sports and at SLV, bocce ranks right near the top, along with golf. Bocce courts are open to everyone and equipment is stored in the closet adjacent to the courts.
Bocce league play begins in April with the formation of teams. Play ends in September with a hotly contested championship series. Come and cheer for your favorites or join a team yourself. It’s a game of skill where mere inches make a difference.
Are you a mermaid or a merman? Do your feet never touch the water?
Either way, or in-between, you’ll enjoy the Shadow Lake Village pool and pool deck. The pool is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. A lifeguard is present 8 am to 8 pm when the pool is open. After the pool has closed for the season, the pool deck can be enjoyed through the end of September (weather permitting) for sitting and/or socializing.
The Shadow Lake Village pool is the site of many summer activities including water aerobics and evening pool parties. All you need is your SLV I.D. card. Residents' guests are admitted with a guest pass and in the company of a resident. See the Management Office to obtain a single day or seasonal guest pass.
Children ages 4 to 15 years old are welcome at the pool any day from 10 am to 1 pm. Children must be accompanied by a supervising SLV resident.
