The best part for us was the large grassy play area for the kids. It was just like back in the 80's where you played with all the kids there in one giant game of who knows. The grounds are maintained. It is busy busy there, so book 9 months in advance. There are go-carts with in walking distance, which was so much for for all ages.
It get chilly there, so be prepared. The lake is mountain run-off water. The town of Josef is a short drive to see some history and grab some food.
Again.. book early!
We love this place! It is privately owned and well maintained.The roads are paved. There is an indoor pool, a pavilion that has entertainment on the weekends and general store to send the kids to when they need a treat. The ground have beautiful trees to provide shade. It is in the mountains, so it can rain at any time. There are trails from the campground out into the forest that are easy to navigate. If you need anything from town, it is a short 10 minute drive.
This park is well kept. The grass is green and luscious in the common area near the swimming. They have a boat launch as well as a separate dock for picking up passengers. If you walk along the shore line, you can find a flat area to set up your day in the water with chairs and floats. Bring a pop-up tent to create some shade and it is a great place to hang towels.
The campground is somewhat primitive. There are flushing toilets on the lower loop, vault toilets on the upper loop. no showers, but you can refresh in the lake. The nights get chilly, so be prepared with warm socks and a beenie, especially if you’re tent camping.
There are now power boats allowed on the lake, so it is raft, kayak paddle board friendly.
The path arIund the lake is sn easy walk, just don’t expect tI sIt on a bench and enjoy the vIew. Yhe yrees have grown up
