In the Chippewa National Forest, this campground is very peaceful and quiet. The smell of pine is definitely in the air. Our site was in the non-reservable loop and it was huge. Some of the sites in the reservable loops were tight and getting into them might be difficult because of the trees. This isn't the place for you if you have to have electricity. There is only 15 amp service, so using the microwave, hair dryer, etc. is iffy, but if you just want lights and TV, this place is great. We will definitely stay here again. The rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived they acted like they were mad at us because they messed up on our Reservation dates, They gave us an attitude and wasn't friendly the whole 2 weeks we were there. When we packed up to leave on the date they said they had us booked for again they got mad, stating they moved things around so we could stay, But who told us? No one. We were treated like outsiders and never felt welcome. But we decided to risk it and booked another reservation for the next year, only to find out our son was being shipped to Iraq and the only time we could see him before he left was our Reservation dates , So because we were one day late letting them know we were cancelling we were treated very badly , She hung up on my Husband after telling him, " She had to count the days!" Again no response came so when My Husband inquired about the deposit She said you were one day late so you don't get your deposit. Never will I stay there again and I will never recommend them to anyone. Very rude, very unprofessional, Not Friendly at all We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners are not oriented to a family group. They seem to have a disliking to children. Rules are created daily with the only interest of money in their pockets. Service is extremely poor for weekend and seasonal residents We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great resort. Friendly staff, well equipped store and great restaurant. Full marina with rentals. Sites are big and great easy pull-thus. Not too private but nice sites. Play areas for the kids. Nicely paved roads so no dust to deal with. We have stayed here often but you need to book in advance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped here for one night. The lake is beautiful and the campground is advertised as a resort area. It is family friendly and has houses and trailers to rent. There are also a lot of permanent residents. Our site was grass and dirt and difficult to maneuver for a 42' motorhome. We had full hookup ,but the camper parked next to us was also hooked into the 20 amp part of our electrical box. Quiet time was from 10pm to 8am but there were kids outside playing after 11:30pm. When we checked in we used our Good Sam discount, but were charged an additional $3 per dog as "additional occupants". They were not allowed near the water and the designated pet area was way on the other side of the park. The campground was in a beautiful area, but there were so many people crammed in and so many rules that it was not an enjoyable place. We would not camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a reservation since the first week of March. They had assigned site 317. When we arrived and checked in and went to the site it was the worst site in the park. It was lumpy and very unlevel. I looked at the electrical box and there were spider webs all over it. Obviously no one had been in that site for a while. The front of the site was about 3 feet lower than the back. It was within a few feet of a bath house. We went back to the office and told them we were not staying and we wanted a refund. Fortunately they do it the same as a hotel and just charge day by day. We had to pay for the first night but did get a small refund. We were just very happy to get away from there. It is typical of almost all the RV parks in Minnesota. They call them all 'resorts' but that is far from accurate. We did not stay here and would never stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What started out as a fish camp in the fifties has grown to a lakeside resort. The older parts of the park with most of the 3 point hookups are a mixed bag of permanent units of varying sizes and available spaces. It's popularity leaves some pretty iffy spots for overnighters. They have a newer section of 2 point only hookups that are easier in/out and more spacious. That said the staff are hard working and nice. The restaurant located on the property is amazing. Wi-Fi is slow. Laundry and showers are well kept and relatively new. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our campsite here faced the lake and made for a lovely view out the front window. I had to trim some branches to get all four slides out and it was very tight maneuvering our 45’ motorhome into our site (#312). We stayed here on a cold, blustery day…in August! The beach and facilities looked great, but it was too cold to enjoy them much. We will try to come back at a warmer time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved our stay!! It is a nice campground well keep and the bathrooms are clean. The beach is huge with nice soft sand and clear water. The depth of the beach is shallow making it great for kids. The owners are friendly and nice. We will go back again. They only really down thing would be the tight lots but they were fair. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were here for a night in the middle of the July 4 weekend. It's a cool place, but when you own a place with a beach, you need to clean the bathrooms more often. I checked out all of the bath houses in the afternoon and none of them were clean, and they weren't clean at night. There was also a fair amount of garbage piled up everywhere. This campground has a lot of seasonal and full-time campers, and a lot of manufactured homes. The beach is tiny, and the roped-off part of the lake is too shallow to do anything but wade. It's a great place for boaters. Our spot was fronting a lagoon and in a grassy area. The office building features a restaurant, game room and store, and there's free Wi-Fi in the building. You can pay for Wi-Fi at your site. My 11-year-old cost $5 extra. Great recreational opportunities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Narrow but long pull thrus shaded by towering red pines. Bald eagles can be seen flying overhead and out on the lake. Quite a few seasonal families come on the weekend. Smoke from many campfires was annoying, especially the unattended fires. Some sites are level, some are sloping sites front to back. The streets have been recently repaved, and a new bath house has just been completed. Individual pads are a mix of mostly sand and dirt with some gravel mixed in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
