My kids and I have been coming to Atwood for the last 10 years. We look forward to it every summer. The people are friendly and there is always something to do!!
Location, location, location! Grab a lake front spot and just hang out there! The park is in excellent condition and the facilities are just as clean and comfortable.
Friendly staff who you don't see unless you go find them. Rangers patrolling the grounds. Nice beach area with toys for the kids and adults. Pet friendly. Nature center and store. Biggest downfalls were the construction, small sites and bath houses being spread out. Not great when it rains, grounds flood quickly.
Wwhile the campground is designed for mostly RV. camping, we have never had a problem finding a tent site. Has so many things to do.
This just happens to be the place I met my wife on an Explorers BSA campout back in 85.
We camp there about 3 times a year and have friends w/ permit sites.
This campground is HUGE (more than 500 sites), and it's absolutely jam packed with RVs and permanent trailers. We were fortunately given the opportunity to drive around the campground and look for a site that was appropriate for tents. We nearly turned around and left, but managed to find a site on the water that seemed really nice and far enough away from the RVs. The downside was that it was completely covered in goose scat, which made for an evening of dodging scat with every single step. Definitely not recommended for tent campers.
