“Lots of mosquitoes, no Verizon 4G signal”

Reviewed 7/20/2019

Nightly rate: FREE!
Days stayed: 1
Overall Rating

Bean Lake has only two campsites that can accommodate RVs, and these two have picnic tables, fire rings, and pit toilets. There may be enough space for three to four campers in cars with tents.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I note no camping fees. There are no signs asking for camping fees, no collection box, and no camping rules posted. I'm not sure why the previous reviewer paid $7.00, and where he deposited the money.

There is no Verizon 4G data coverage here, though voice and texting works with some trouble.

Tons of mosquitoes here. Bring lots of deet.

I arrived here on July 2, 2019, on a Tuesday, and found no one else around. The campground looked as if no one had visited recently.

If you plan to visit here, DO NOT take State Road 434 here. That road has a bridge crossing Dearborn River with a weight limit of 14,000 pounds, and is very narrow, with a sharp turn on to the bridge. If you have a long trailer or RV, you'll probably scrap the side of your rig on the bridge's entrance, and may even cause the bridge to collapse. Moreover, if you happen to arrive at the bridge, and decide to go back, you won't be able to go back. There is no turn-around, and you'll have to instead drive reverse up a very steep, gravel grade.

Instead, use US-287 to Flat Lake Road (find Milford Colony on Google Maps). This route is more wide, more flat, and easily accessible by any vehicle.

“Camping. Water, Toilet”

This place was once pretty awesome. But the lake no longer has a steady source of water. You can camp here still and the pond is ok. It's rather wide open for campers and rvs so access is very good.
