People are naturally attracted to water, while our health and the health of our planet rely so heavily upon it. It makes sense that more and more people are opting to move closer to it. A home on Thompson Lake provides an ideal waterside experience that can be enjoyed by new residents of any age.


Ever have a hankering to get out and have fun on the water, but don’t want to bother packing up the van, rounding up the kids, and driving all the way there? This ceases to be an issue when you have Thompson Lake in your backyard. If you don’t have a boat of your own, you can rent a pontoon or ski boat from the Thompson Lake Marina. They also rent tubes and stand-up paddleboards if you’re looking for a little more excitement.


Fishing is just as convenient, and Thompson Lake is regularly stocked with choice game like salmon, trout, and small and large mouth bass. If you’re looking for a quieter experience, take a kayak or canoe out on the Heath, which is a small body of water next to Thompson Lake where motorboats are prohibited. If you’d rather be on your feet, Thompson Lake has coves and glacier rocks ready to be explored. You might even see an eagle or moose along the way.
