Lady in the Lake

This oddity was destroyed due to Hurricane Sally on September 14.

[Brooke Stulce, 10/02/2020]

Mark Cline, who created the Lady, told us that "we are now in talks about repairing her," but added that "there's a possibility she'll never be restored."

The Lady in the Lake was awesome. It was hard to find. If you find the giant spider, walk towards the left. Go down the boardwalk. Then go right, walk out on the docks to the right. Keep going -- eventually you will see her head.

We went in July 2019 to see the Lady in the Lake in Elberta!

[Roberta Horn, 07/15/2019]

The Lady was built by fiberglass artist Mark Cline in 2012. She floats in the Lake during the warm weather months, but dries off indoors during the winter.

Past the dinosaurs in the SW corner of the Barber Marina, the Lady in the Lake can been seen enjoying her skinny dipping. Floating walkways allow you to get up close.
