Wanted to update my review from 2007. We now are seasonal and have enjoyed Lakeside for the past two seasons. The views are fantastic. We travel almost 3 hours to get there when we have many campgrounds that are closer and we know we have that choice but we have not found one that has the views and other features that Lakeside offers such as the personal commitment by the owners. They are continuously updating the facilities, they truly enjoy the children and families. It is the perfect place. We are passionate about the choice we have made and have signed up for the next following year.
Family owned campground - nicely spaced sites, nice lake, dj dancing on some Saturdays. Plenty for kids to do. Beautiful surroundings. There are quiet areas for those that choose that. Enjoyed it so much - doing seasonal next year. Owners and the neighbors are wonderful!
We came to Lakeside from a large 400 site campground that we had been a part of for over 20 years. It is now corporately owned and is no longer enjoyable. We were looking for the same feel. We did our homework and searched most of the summer for a new place, we looked at websites, emailed the owners and visited the campgrounds themselves. We visited Lakeside and liked what we saw and decided to stay. We have stayed at Lakeside 3 times and decided to go seasonal. The owners treated us like family and made us feel comfortable. The park is obviously smaller than what we were used to and the Lake is smaller but the surrounding beauty makes up for it. When you are a seasonal camper and camp for long periods of time at one place, you get to know the ins and outs of the campground, the people, the way you are treated and what the campground offers for activities. I can honestly say we made the right choice and are looking forward to a wonderful 2008! I might mention that their Halloween party was fantastic!
Years ago I rated this campground and gave it the highest rating. There seems to be a lack of security now. The quality of the campground itself seems to be suffering. The lake needs cleaning. You can not even take a boat out without your oar getting stuck on the undergrowth. It is run with a strickly business atmosphere. We will not be back.
