the Cullen Chain has no public launch access (other than our private resort
boat launch) which preserves
the quality of life here for the lake's residents and guests. This 435

on some other lakes. At one and one quarter miles across and 40 feet
deep, Upper Cullen Lake is perfect for swimming, fishing and most water
sports and is navigable during most all weather conditions. (FACTOID: Our resort
was one of the finalist locations considered for the filming of the movie
"Grumpier Old Men"). Fascinating
