Excellent wooded campground

We stayed at site 41, which can be reserved ahead, but is tent-only, no electricity. It is a neat site with several steps leading down to it from the parking area, then another staircase leading right to the lake/boat launch.

The sites at this campground are very clean, well maintained, large and wooded. Overall, the area was quiet, except we could hear people launching their boats starting at around 5:30am. The hosts work hard to make sure the facilities are clean and everyone is happy.

We would definitely stay here again.

Great hiking, ok camping

We were in Gooseberry Glen cart-in site 4. As other reviewers have said, it's a fairly long walk in with your gear, and the trail is challenging when pushing a cart. Once at the site, it's beautiful: right on the water, completely shaded, and spacious. However, we could clearly see our neighbors at site 3, which you don't expect at a cart-in site this far in the woods. It rained while we were there, and the site became quite muddy. Our gear and ourselves were filthy when we left. Finally, as another reviewer said, the animals in the area are not shy: mice, raccoon, squirrel, all were scampering around very close and in clear view of us throughout our stay. We kept our food in the car as there was no secure food box at the site.

We enjoyed hiking the challenging Dakota Trail during our stay. It was about a 3.5-4 hour hike with aggressive elevation changes and beautiful scenic overlooks. The majority of the trail is well shaded in the woods.
