Lakeside Information Center to Open at the Pavilion

This summer, a Lakeside Information Center for guests will open at the Pavilion. It will be located across from the North Coast Kite Co., in the space formerly occupied by Lakeside Landing. Lakeside thanks Carol Yoakam for her many years of service at Lakeside Landing.

The Lakeside Board of Directors approved the information center as part of the Strategic Plan’s third and fourth goals: To assure Lakeside is a safe, healthy and aesthetically-pleasing community and to address emerging 21st century guest expectations.  

To provide support to the congestion at the Lakeside Chautauqua Administration Office, the information center’s location will be easily accessible for guests to ask questions about the Chautauqua program, complete reservations for waterfront activities and finalize payment for boat rentals, including standup paddleboards, kayaks and Sunfish sailboats.  

It will also serve to help guests register for wooden boat cruises, obtain a fishing license and regulations, and sign up for sailing lessons.

In addition, guests will be able to register and make payments for various recreational events, including the Kelleys Island Swim, 5k Raccoon Run, Triathlons and sailing races. Payment and registration will still also be available at the Lakeside Chautauqua Administration Office.

The Lakeside Information Center will be open over Memorial Day weekend from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, May 23 and 12-6 p.m. Sunday, May 24.

During the 2015 Bonus Weekend, the information center will be open from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, May 30 and 12-6 p.m. Sunday, May 31.

From Saturday, June 6-Sunday, Sept. 6, the center will be open from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 12-6 p.m. Sunday.

Guests may contact the Lakeside Information Center at (419) 798-4461, ext. 266 or
