Busy campground

Super loud campground. Closest area to camp to the National Park. Nice shaded tent sites but you’ll have to haul your stuff uphill & then it’s not too private.

Very interesting.

Beautiful scenery, very large park, fishing, boat rentals, man made beach, loooong floating boardwalk, lots of trails, unique sites and tons of history. It was very fun walking around while learning some of the very old and somewhat creepy history. The lodge/hotel is beautiful and very old. Very nice looking cabins arranged in a little community. The park is very well maintained, has a nice playground and cute camp store. A good amount of secluded and shaded sites. Really cool "hill" sites that you have to hike up or down 20-100 feet to your wooded site. Wifey says the bathrooms were below average, outdated and very buggy (most important for her).

Great weekend getaway

Spent a long weekend with the family. Nice cabins and trails.

Beautiful setting

The camp is beautiful. Opportunities for disc golf, archery range, canoing/kayaking/row boats, swimming (no lifeguard) and golf. Showerheads were to low for anyone over 5'7", and only a few sites were full hookup.

State park with site for everything from tents to 5th wheel campers

A variety of sites from primitive to full hook up. Flush toilets and clean showers. The lake is small and limited to electric motors only, but nice for kayaks and SUP. And for those of you looking for a little more comfort check out the lodge for a little less rugged stay.

Fun and friendly

We Had A-blast camping here. it's pretty deserted if you're there during the week but the weekends it Is packed.

Family Friendly Campground

Punderson was a great weekend get away. The campground was very clean including the bathrooms and the camp sites. There is a lake with kayak and small boat rentals, kid friendly hiking trails. The only downside is that some of the campsites are very close together. So if you are looking for a secluded camping spot this may not be the best campground.

Our favorite campsite!

We tent camp from our motorcycles & this is our favorite camp site! We have camped here 4 times & love the private, wooded site.

lakeside tent site

I had the furthest lakeside tent from the office. was a beautiful site but the water treatment facility had a loud hum all night, even though they said it was quiet.


It could be an ok place if you get the right spot. Some of the sites are VERY SLOPED and some people parked campers in those spots and used very odd things to try and level them. The sites are not maintained well and have lots of weeds and some are very close and are essentially sharing the space with the fire ring and picnic table with other campers. Not very private at all. If you have awnings or slides, you will have to be careful about what site you will get or you will not be able to open the slides or your awning. If you get a good spot or are tent camping then it may be ok.
