  1. Morning. I'm hoping to take the kiddo up to Elsie Lake for a picnic and swim at some point this weekend, We usually like to go to the side with the water tower (is that what it is?). Will there be access this weekend coming up?

    1. I'm not familiar with the water tower, however, access will be permitted to Island's property along Elsie Lake for this long weekend. Sounds like a great time!
