Gorgeous in the fall!

We stayed during the campground's last weekend in October, and loved it. It was so gorgeous with all the fall colors, and it's really a gem of a campground.

Pros:

-Beautiful, huge lake with lots of pretty views

-Primitive spots are separated from electric spots, which is great if you're looking for quiet, peaceful tent camping

-Primitive spots are relatively private and generously sized, you don't feel like you're right on top of your neighbors

-Decent portapotty in close distance

-Plenty of picnic spots

-Electric spots are right along the lake, which offers beautiful views

-On-site firewood

Cons:

-Full modern bathrooms are a long walk/drive away

-Not much for activities

-Water hydrants are right in the middle of people's camping spots, so it feels awkward to grab water

-The only hiking trail is EXTREMELY poorly marked and when it ends (it doesn't tell you it's ending) you either have to just turn around or walk a mile along the busy highway with very small shoulder. We mistakenly took the highway expecting the trail to continue, but it didn't and it was very scary, 0/10 don't recommend.

-Not many walk-in spots

-Lots of primitive spots are on a hill, so your tent is a little sideways

-Not many dumpsters

-No lights in the portapotty, so you'll need a headlamp at night

EDITED TO ADD: We stayed again in May, and it was a great place to spend a weekend. Quiet, friendly but not a party crowd, and a nice, relaxing environment overall. Word on the streets (from the DNR warden) is that they’re looking into creating 2 more hiking trails too.

  • Primitive camping area without any tents set up
