Lakeside Information Center Opens at the Pavilion

Posted on April 14, 2015

This summer, a Lakeside Information Center opened at the Pavilion for guests.

It is 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 ease congestion at the Lakeside Chautauqua Administration Office, guests can easily access the information center to ask questions about the Chautauqua program, make 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 rides, 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 be available at the Lakeside Chautauqua Administration Office.

From Saturday, June 20-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
