Lake Wawasee Boat Tours

The Oakwood Tour Boat was custom-built by Winninghoff in Rowley, Massachusetts. It was built in 1986 for the US Parks Department, who used it as a canal tour boat in Maine. Oakwood Resort acquired the boat in July of 2013 to offer tours of scenic Lake Wawasee to our guests.
