Be prepared for the Raccoons and tons of fun! Beautiful lake with several nearby places to rent boat's! Beautiful, peaceful campsites with a lot of shade!
We had an amazing weekend camping at one of the non-electric sites. Our site was right next to the lake, which was awesome for the kids. The grounds were very clean and the sites had plenty of space. The only drawback for us was having one shower stall available in the Men's and Women's restrooms in the non-electric area.
Well-maintained campground! The restroom/shower facilities are clean and well lit. Campsites are nicely wooded and spacious. Most are very unlevel though - so bring ALL your blocks! 😜 Good hiking and a fun and clean sandy beach. Also a nice biking/walking trail. For those with boats, this is a nice sized lake with easy access too!
Great visit when boating is your main objective!
Great campground, clean and nice sites! There is plenty to do, and the lake it one of my favorites! plenty of boat ramps for access and great environment all around
Racoon Lake was an awesome experince. We rented a pontoon boat while we were there and went tubing up and down the lake. It was a clean campground as well. The views were absolutely stunning.
Bathroom facilities are very clean, new bike, walking, rollerblading path. Beach is large and clean. We go every year and love it!
We love camping here! Lots to do. Love the archery range.
We had our pick of the primitive sites when we arrived midweek for a single overnight stay. Most of the sites are either barely large or flat enough for a tent or in full sun. We found the perfect roomy shaded site with a great private trail down to look over the water. The park office staff was friendly and helped us obtain our explore pins. We also enjoyed the well stocked camp store and the playground right behind the store. We used a handful of the vault toilets located throughout the park and they were surprisingly clean. We walked a few trails and along the shore by the dock next to the beach. Trail 1 is definitely more than moderate and would be difficult with young children not experienced in hiking. Overall we had a great time and will likely return for more than a one night stay.
We camped here with young kids in May. Though most of the campsite are cramped with no shade, ours was huge, fully shaded, and had a short trail to a great view of the lake. There were also other trailheads very close. We hiked several trails, some well-traveled, others overgrown and eroding, and saw groundhogs, a giant fish, salamanders, raccoons, birds, and some unique finds like an apple maple wasp gall. There were also signs of deer, and remains of small animals like fish, a vole, and crayfish. (We felt one of the "moderate" trails was definetely more rugged than advertised.) At night we could hear a lot of animal noises, including raccoons fighting, owls, and cyotees, and had several animal visitors to our site (and sniffing at our tents). We visited the office and camp store several times, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall, we loved our trip and plan to go back again soon…as long as we can get the same site.
