The ASU Lake House resumed general-use hours on March 3, with hours of operation from 1 p.m. to sundown on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Traditionally, general-use hours shut down for the season the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and resume the first operational day in March.

The Lake House is located at 1925 Beaty Road on Lake Nasworthy. It is open to ASU students and faculty/staff who hold a valid OneCard, UREC pass holders, activity card holders and foundation members with CHP privileges. Students, faculty/staff, and activity card holders may bring up to four guests for free.

The facility’s amenities include table tennis, an outdoor sand volleyball court, an outdoor basketball court, picnic tables, free-standing charcoal grills, a playground, a shaded pavilion, two boat launches, bathroom facilities and lake access.

In addition, equipment such as kayaks, paddleboards, basketballs, volleyballs, footballs, table tennis paddles, and Frisbees can be checked out for day use. Guests under the age of 16 must be supervised by a parent or guardian to check out equipment. Anyone who would like to check out watercraft is required to sign a risk waiver.

Freshmen Raelyn Hill, Sherina Thomas, Desiree Reyes and Nohely Ramirez were some of the students who took advantage of the weekend’s warm weather to check out paddleboards from the Lake House.

"We were planning on playing volleyball as well and making a day out of it," Hill said.

The group had also utilized the Lake House the previous semester.

"The last time we went we played mud volleyball, and it was really fun," Ramirez said.

The Lake House facility is also available for private event rental, such as weddings and family reunions.

"My favorite part about the Lake House is that it is open to students," Hill said. "Even if someone has a reservation, we can still come hang out here regardless."
