Just as the lake level rises and falls with the seasons, the forests take on their fiery fall cloak and the sunsets sneak in a little earlier, so must the businesses at Russell Lands On Lake Martin adjust their hours for the not-so-busy season. But rest assured, our doors are open, and we’re here to greet you warmly!

With that in mind, we will open up the Pumpkin Patch, and have pumpkin carving and decorating, a real firetruck for the kids to climb in and on, horseback rides and, of course, arts and crafts. This year, we are adding a few new things!
