Beach

The Osthoff Resort offers the finest lakeshore setting in southeastern Wisconsin with 500 ft. of sand beach on beautiful Elkhart Lake. Formed by retreating glaciers, Elkhart Lake has a natural sand bottom that keeps our water clear year-round. Our lakefront features picnic areas complete with watersports, grills, bonfire area, a playground, volleyball courts and a concession stand.

Wristbands are given to The Osthoff Resort’s guests to enjoy the private lakefront/swimming area with a limited number of beach lounge chairs available.

The Lake Deck and Watersport Rentals are open to resort guests and the general public.

Pets are NOT allowed down at the lake front area.
