Good times

It has been awhile since i have camped here. With trails and what I thought to be amazing camping i enjoyed it. With Grand Rivers a short drive up the road you will have plenty to do. It can be crowded and cramped at times but i enjoyed hiking biking and Grand Rivers.

Beautiful Quiet large Campground

This is a great campground in a beUtiful place.. it’s huge and it looked like a lot of campers come in on weekend and leave camp site during week.. So nice! Staff great! Store Great!


Somehow we got lucky enough to get the nicest spot in the whole place. Nice, quiet campground. Lakeside sites. Great place if you have a boat or kayaks. Clean bathrooms. We stayed five days and would come back. Some sites not as private as others so you may want to be careful choosing if that’s important to you. Beautiful and wooded lake camping. Had three dogs playing in the lake. We have a pop up camper and we were nice and comfortable. Friendly staff. Lots of families here with kids riding bikes and playing in the lake.

Clean and Rustic

The best part of this campground is the beautiful rustic old timey feel. There are updated modern bathhouses dispersed throughout. The camp store is well stocked. There is a very nice boat ramp and several boat parking areas. “T” area is our favorite with full hookups and beautiful pine trees. A premier and amazing mountain bike trail system is accessible directly from campground!! The Canal Loop Trail and North South Trails are well known and revered by area mountain bikers and hikers. No WiFi or internet service. Cell signal in prior years have been spotty. Very family friendly and lots of kids riding bikes and playing everywhere!

Big Fun on the Lake

This huge campground has the best tent sites near the water on loop B that aren't reservable, so you'll likely get a good one just showing up on a weeknight in the summer or less busy weekend. The kids had a great time at the beach/swimming area and there's a nice store and not too much traffic for riding bikes. Firewood was dry and reasonably priced. Definitely a favorite family campground at LBL!

Yet to disappoint

Another successful camp in the books

Great Campground but a little noisy late at night.

5 Star camp ground and activities, but noisy after 10pm with kids on golf carts and partying at their beach location late at night. If they get them off the cart they walk the roads being loud and obnoxious. I camp to relax not to party or babysit.

Great campground

My family loves to camp here. It is a big campground with lots of trees. My family like playing in the creek, riding bikes, swimming in the lake, & hiking on the trails. They have a camp small store, basketball courts, 2 playgrounds, a beach area and 2 boat ramps. It’s a great family friendly campground!

Nice campground but....

Beautiful campground. Big sites. Nice private shower houses. But lock up your beer… apparently it's common to have it stolen from your cooler when ur gone or asleep. Happend to us in the 15 min we went to take showers. Talked to the gate guard and they are aware it's a problem but dont warn you…. tiny frogs everywhere!!!!!😊😊😊😊

By far the best

This is absolutely my favorite camping home. The staff is amazing, they know us by name. Fellow campers are courteous and very friendly, almost like family.
