“Great campground close to home”

Reviewed May 06, 2018

Overall Rating

We camp here several times a year. It’s only 1.5 hours from our home, so it’s perfect for quick weekend getaways. Camp hosts are friendly and helpful. Sites are large with electric. There is a fresh water spigot and dump station at the campground. We always try to reserve lakeside sites. Weekends normally fill up. There are also several first come sites on the lake. The campground is about 20 minutes from the town of Carlyle. There is a Marina next to the campground for basics like firewood and ice. We’ve seen a lot of sunsets in this country, but for some reason the sunsets here are some of the best we’ve ever seen. We really enjoy this campground.

“Relaxing, quiet”

Reviewed Aug 24, 2016

Overall Rating

The setting is nice, quiet. We are here midweek and there were less than 1/3 full. All seniors, no children. Our site is located on a peninsula and we are right on the lake, couldn't ask for a better sight. Lots of birds and butterflies to watch. Nice breeze off the lake. Facilities are clean and well taken care of. They have a laundry but haven't checked it out. Camp hosts were welcoming, informative and friendly. I'd definitely come back! A little off the beaten track but that's what makes it so nice. My only complaint is that the lights on the bathroom facility are bright and take away from the solitude at night.
