Tight Fit

We Stayed at Lake in Wood campground in July. The place was huge. The roads were very tight and you really had to watch how you drove through because of the trees. Our site was a drive-through but slanted. There wasn’t much room on our site to do anything else. The fire ring was about all the room allowed. The metal picnic table was nice but very heavy. Our first night there A storm came through that was so bad I was worried a tree would fall on a trailer. This campground is mostly seasonal but they do have some weekend spots. The campground was very large and I would recommend renting a golf cart. They have a big lawn in the middle which rolls down to the lake. The weekend we were there they had A chicken dinner. It was actually very good. We experienced the hayride around the campground. The staff was very nice and helped us with an emergency that we had.

Bustling campground

When we booked our site we didn’t realize that most of the property is on a hill. Each camper was rather tight and we felt like we were staying at an RV show, that’s how crowded it felt. But as with most campgrounds, the air was filled with kids laughing and campfire smoke. We played mini golf and the course needed a lot of work. We also went to the pools. While there is two, they were extremely crowded. One of us ended up on a kiddie chair because that is all that was left. Trick is to go in the early morning and put a towel on a chair. Otherwise, good luck. The slide was fun. Also loved the big green lawn in the middle. The premium sites looked very nice but were expensive. Staff was always polite. They say that you can’t bring in firewood but we saw plenty of people did. They sold wood but very expensive.
