Lake of the Woods is a great place for younger kids and good retirement homes for older people. We have two pools, one brand new, also a lot of parks. Theirs are many trails to walk on with your dogs. It is a gated community with two gates. Also with two lakes the big one and the small one. You can get a boating pass to go kayaking, fishing, tubing, and just relax on the water. Their is many beaches to go swimming. Golf courses with two res truants.

The community is brautiful... lots of things to do. But, poor management and cost overruns on projects, drainage issues not being addressed roads that are in horrid repair, theft that went on for years before being discovered, pricing people out by constantly raising assessments... it all adds up. Very costly.
I love my neighborhood! It is family oriented. There is so much room for activities. There are several parks and so many beaches to choose from if you are looking for somewhere to hang out on a warm and sunny day! If you want to grab a bite to eat the Clubhouse and the Golf Course Cafe have a fun and friendly atmosphere!
