Hawks Landing Resort, formerly known as "The Flame Resort", was originally built in 1964. The original owners built and managed the resort for over 40 years until selling in 2008 when they sold to a developer who had planned on demolishing the resort and building condos in its place. Plans to build condos fell through soon after purchase. Without the upkeep needed, the resort closed in 2012 and remained vacant and fell into disarray.  

In 2015, the current owners, David, Karla, and Dustin Dailing, purchased the old resort and began to breathe life into the resort. The Dailing's faced an uphill battle to repair roofs, lay new flooring, replace water lines, windows, showers, and basically any and everything else imaginable from the resort being left vacant and unkept for so long. With the help of a great crew, Hawks Landing Resort began its quest to be one of the best family vacation spots on the lake in 2016.
