Private, woodsy camp sites

Very nice campground. Bare bones, but that’s all we needed. There are composting toilets, but no showers. We’ll pump to take water to your campground. Quiet, secluded, right next to a lake.

Nothing special

I stayed here Labor Day weekend 2019 and unfortunately did not know there was an off-road race scheduled in nearby Crandon who meant the campground was busy. Quiet hours were not enforced and many people returned to their campsites late and were a little louder than was appreciated. The lake itself wasn’t particularly interesting to canoe. Also all of the lakefront sites are well above t he water so if you’re hoping to just carry a canoe or kayak down, it would be pretty difficult. Sites were good sized but not very private.

Very beautiful place but billions of mosquitoes. We survived only one night. Couldn't stay outside at all. Nothings helped-sprays, bracelets,  enteric oils
