One of Lake Martin’s favorite events is back for its sixth year! The 2022 Lake Martin YP Polar Plunge presented by Lake Martin Dock Company is happening on Saturday, January 15th at Kowaliga Restaurant benefitting the Lake Martin Resource Association .


Join in for a great times as participants take the plunge into Lake Martin from the shores of Kowaliga Beach. Entry to the event is $30, which includes delicious food from Kowaliga Restaurant’s special Polar Plunge menu, live music and supporting the Lake Martin Resource Association’s mission of keeping Lake Martin clean, safe and prosperous. Kowaliga’s bars will be up and running to serve your favorite beverages.


In addition to the Plunge, guests can take part in the Costume Contest with $100 cash going to the best costume, as well as the Dash for the Cash – a short race to a floating buoy and back to the shoreline immediately after the Plunge – for another $100.


Participate in the Plunge or just come for the good times! Changing tents will be on-site for anyone taking the Plunge to dry off and change clothes. Participants taking the Plunge should bring a pair of water shoes since the beach is a little rocky.
