Inlet is on Fourth Lake, one of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. It features an active retail center with locally-owned stores as well as Arrowhead Park. The park is the focus of summer activity, with a sandy beach, tennis courts and an expanse of lawn for enjoying the summer concert series. The Park was also the launch site of "One Square Mile of Hope," in 2011. By creating the world's largest floating raft of canoes and kayaks, a Guinness World Record was broken and more than $80,000 raised for Susan Komen for the Cure. Inlet's earlier entry in history books was when murderer Chester Gillette was arrested there in 1906 after sinking his pregnant girlfriend into the waters of Big Moose Lake. The story inspired the book "An American Tragedy" and the film "A Place in the Sun." On a lighter note, the Inlet Golf Club offers 18 championship holes adjacent to Sixth Lake.
