“Great campground with a lot to do close by!”

Overall Rating

We stayed here for a week while our daughter was at the International Music Camp. We had reserved our spot right when the window for reservations opened as we were there over the 4th of July weekend. During the week prior the area was very quiet and laid back and as it drew closer to the weekend things started picking up. Not necessarily in a bad way just a lot more people around. The campground was full but that wasn't an issue and the sites are large enough to have your own space.

Our site had water and electric hookups and a very nice shower house close by. There was a single lane dump station that was a bit busy at checkout time Sunday. The staff was very friendly and helpful and had the grounds in great condition for the busy weekend.

The real gem was kayaking on School Section Lake, adjacent to the park. While Lake Metigoshe is where all the cabins and boating activity is at, School Section Lake was quite and as smooth as glass. We came across all sorts of wildlife while kayaking. Deer, moose, and coyote on the shores and muskrat, beaver, ducks, geese, loons and pelicans on the water. The amount and variety of birds just from our campsite was outstanding and to the point that I had to buy a bird identification book just to try and make some sense of them all! :)

Overall, we would gladly stay here again and have our spot already reserved for this summer!
