We stayed here for a week. The campground itself is lovely. The people who work it are kind, helpful and accommodating. The sites themselves are small, ours had massive roots that made walking and setting up outside a challenge. We saw a couple of people actually moving their campers to different sites. Too much work for us. The lake is beautiful for swimming. Nothing to do in and around Manton.
Small campground with absolutely stunning views of the lake! The "beach" area is a bit rocky and I wouldn't recommend actually swimming there, but there's decent fishing and it's very quite. It's also conveniently located with lots of local firewood stands and places for food.
Campsites are very clean and big, with nice trails to explore. Just a heads up, the sites with "lake access" don't actually have lake access - it's a steep drop to the water. Tumble at your own risk. Also, there are few trees within the boundaries of the actual campsites, so if you like hammock naps, you'll probably have to venture out of your site a bit. Great opportunities to fish the river nearby though, and the Trak Bar & Grill in nearby Brethren has an awesome burger.
Camped here during the week. This is a township campground and does NOT get funding from The state so there are lots of little fees and also the showers are quarter operated (7 min per 25cents). But its well worth the money because they keep it very well cleaned and updated bathrooms. We got a lake view site, but the view was blocked by the RV next to us which sucked. Get site 7, 8, or 9 for an unobstructed view of the lake. Firewood was $6 a bundle, $5 to use the boat launch, and $15 per night for an extra tent. Regardless of viee and fees i would go back here. The location is amazing, right on Elk lake and 20min from Torch lake, 5min from the bay, and 30min to WINERIES (which we visited on a rainy day when we couldnt swim). Highly recommend!
We camped here in early June right after the Star Parks were allowed to open. The campground is very well kept, lots of old growth tress. Our spot was level with trees for good shade. The camp store had just opened so they were not very well stocked and this included wood, a short ride up the street got us the supply we needed. The bathrooms were well maintained and clean. The camping areas was all quite after 10:00. The beach area was big with plenty of space to spread out. All in all I nice place with very helpful and friendly staff. It was an enjoyable weekend and we plan to back before the season is over
We stayed for a quick overnight and wish we could have stayed longer. If we stayed again - we’d pick site 101. Little more privacy than the rest. We stayed at 137 which backed up to the woods which was lovely. This is a very bustling and full campground with lots of groups and families. Lot’s of kids on bikes. We were surprised to see a group with a full bar right out front on their site. We’re used to Texas parks where that would NOT fly😆 But everyone respected the quiet hours so we had no noise issues at night. Easy access to the water from everywhere thanks to groomed paths. Nice long but narrow sandy beach great for the kids to swim. Busy but very fun place to camp!
