  • Found this place by accident. What a beautiful setting. Saw a Linden tree, many trees changing color. If you like quiet nature you will love this place. The lake water so clean, you could almost drink...  more »

  • If you want a quiet, beautiful place to camp, this is it! The campsites are separated by trees. The small lake is clear and beautiful. It's very pleasant easy biking around the campground. Bathrooms and showers are modern and clean. Nice hiking trails. This is not an area with tourist attractions, but if you like the experience of camping and enjoying nature, this is one of our favorites.
  • We loved staying here!! Beautiful and all of the staff was super friendly. Nice and secluded and level sites. We had a great view out our back window. The only reason for the 4 stars is that the sites are much smaller then portrayed online, we didn’t think we’d have to unhook the trailer but we did. Not a big deal, we made it work. And also, no grass on most the sites, only dirt. Had to walk my dog down to the end of the road for him to do his business, but still not bad. The shower and toilets were very clean. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay again if we are in the area.
