Shangri-La's Distinguished History

1973: Shangri-La was opened as Shangri-La Water Ski Club by Bill and Adele Sohm, and was run by Bill, Adele and their children: Pam, Bill and Mike.  High profile skiers trained on the slalom course and regulation jump.  

1978: The first wedding is held at Shangri-La. Current owners, Pam and Rod, tie the knot lakeside.

1973 - 2000: Numerous water ski tournaments were held at Shangri-La including the state tournament. Several competitive ski teams trained here including: Hiram College, Kent State University, Akron University, and competitive skiers from the former Sea World Ski Team.  The Shangri-La Water Skiers had a weekly volleyball challenge against the Sea World Ski Team.

2001: Rod and Pam Zeigler purchase Shangri-La.

Today: Rod and Pam Zeigler own and manage the lake with their three adult daughters, but have transformed it into a beautiful oasis for weddings and events. These major renovations were made to the grounds and clubhouse to make it an idyllic outdoor and tropical setting.
