The lake is a popular location for boating, swimming, and fishing. Berlin Lake is renowned for its excellent walleye fishing.

Small game species are found in abundance and hunting areas can be easily accessed.

Stayed in the Maple loop. Very quiet and maintained fairly well. Bathrooms were clean, shower houses aren’t bad. Sites do have electric, just no water. Close to boat launch ramp. Our spot had a great view of the lake! We will definitely come back!
We used to camp here all the time. They had some issues that they fixed. They have changed the fire rings, which makes it harder to cook on. I understand why they changed them. Other than the changes they have mase, we still like to camp here.
A very nice and clean campground with many access point to the the lake. Our camp site was in close proximity to the restroom facilities. We were fourtante that our spot was right beside the lake and we could keep the boat docked their during our stay. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. You have lots of space and don't feel crowed to the other people camping. All sites are reservation only and they usually fill up fast. Nearby to the campground, about one mile South there an animal sanctuary, Noah's Lost Ark. at the campground there is plenty to keep you busy with it having a boating dock and then a volleyball court.
