Dock Space

It’s BYOB at The NASWA, bring your own boat that is! One of the many perks to staying with us is our complimentary dock space for guests. Guests of the resort receive first priority, but if you’re planning to boat over for a visit to the NazBar & Grill or Blue Bistro, we can accommodate you as well. We’ve been offering dock space to our guests for years and this year we’ve upgraded to a brand new dock. Come check it out this summer.

Kayaks & Paddleboards

A sunrise kayak cruise is just one of the countless complimentary activities available to houseguests at The NASWA. Enjoy an active afternoon on the lake and we’ll help set it up for you. No need to lift a finger at The NASWA! Our attendants will assist you with your kayak or paddleboard while sanitizing them in between each use for our guest’s safety.


Guests can book a ride in our beautiful 34’ Sea Ray Amberjack NASWA boat. The Captain will take you out on a 45-minute boat trip during the months of July and August. Spots are limited, so make sure you inquire at the time of check-in what days the Captain is available and when the boat goes out for this complimentary tour.
*Currently unavailable. We will update you with any changes.

Camp Naz

This program is for all ages, not just children! In the summer season, July and August, bring your family down to the beach on Monday and Wednesday nights for a Campfire ’n’ S’mores! We also offer Tie Dye on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3 pm on the beach. There is a nominal fee for Tie Dyeing.
