Great Lake but it can get quite busy at the campground

We camp here every year. We enjoy trout fishing and swimming. The lake is a spring fed lake so the water is pretty cold. I usually float on a air mattress. This campsite can get pretty busy and some parent don’t supervise their kids very closely. Management does enforce quiet hours and no ATVs are allowed. Most campsites are up the hill and can be quite a walk to the lake. There’s security during the busy season. Electric and water hook ups are available. Management is very friendly.


This campground is in Paul Bunyan State Forest. First come, first serve. No ATVs are allowed, perfect if you have young kids on bikes. There are no hook ups at all. Must have a generator for power. Water is available but not at every site. Pets are allowed. Outside toilets are clean. This is a quiet camp ground. The site includes a table and fire ring. There is no place to dock your boat over night. Keep in mind these sites are only $14 a night. There is a host but no security. There are signs up warning about bears.

Great place for families

We camp here every summer. It’s very clean. There’s camping for Tents, trailers and motor homes. Plenty of activities for kids. They have a swimming beach, pool, play ground, game room, it’s safe for kids to ride their bikes. Very well managed and friendly. Bathrooms are clean and there’s a laundry room.
