Lakeside Limbo, (湖のほとり Mizūmi no Hotori in Japan), is the first stage in Lake Orangatanga from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. It is followed by Doorstop Dash.


The first stage of Lake Orangatanga takes place on a boardwalk. Kongs can use team-up early in the stage to reach the above area for bonuses. This stage is pretty basic, it's a long walk across the boardwalk, with a few enemies to defying them. There are a few swimming areas as well. Noticeably missing is Rambi, who, unlike the previous two games, does not appear in the stage at all (nor the game), instead Ellie being found in the latter half of the stage. Five Sneeks, Six Kobbles, a single Booty Bird and a single Koin can be found in this stage.
