Lake Nasworthy facility opens for 2017
Staff tells amenities, events for the coming year
The Lake House facility is now open. As of March 1, the Lake House reopened and will remain accessible for the year until the Monday after December commencement.
It is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 a.m. until sundown.
The Lake House provides outdoor services such as the kayak rentals, stand up paddle boards and mountain bikes.
It also has a volleyball court, picnic areas, charcoal grills and plenty of open space for fishing, relaxing and studying.
Basketballs, volleyballs, footballs, Frisbees and table tennis are also available.
Rentals are limited to the day in most cases. However, there is a three day and a six day rental package available.
Lake House staff is available to assist anyone interested in this.
The area includes two boat launches, shaded pavilions and a playground for children or the big kid hiding inside the adults.
While there is no lifeguard on duty, swimming in Lake Nasworthy is permitted.
Kayaking and stand up paddle boards seem to be the most popular activities.
"The Lake House means a lot to me because I made some of my first college friends there," Sara Gonzales, senior said. "I feel lucky to have a facility that brings people together and offers a wonderful, spacious, relaxing environment for us to take a break after a long school week. We don’t have anything like this where I am from."
Admission to the Lake House only requires a One Card or appropriate identification.
ASU students are allowed to bring up to four guests to enjoy the many amenities provided by the Lake House facility.
"This is such a great facility and opportunity," Ian Brown, assistant director of Outdoor Adventures, said. "The general use of the lake house provides a local resource for students to unwind, connect, relax and de-stress. We even had research students call me to use it for some of their projects."
This facility is entirely student employed and is always hiring. There is an online application with a ratings system of one to six in which applicants can prioritize which positions they’re interested in.
Employment at the Lake House does qualify as a work study program.
The facility was donated to ASU and the recreation department took over in October 2010.
University Recreation also partners with Special Events to host a number of affairs at the Lake House facility.
It has hosted weddings, receptions and graduations.
Even the Home Owner’s Association uses this location to host a fireworks show on July 4. ASU also hosts a Fourth of July celebration at the facility.
Reservations can be made online or by contacting the school’s special events department.
