We stayed in Loop D at this campground. We had a nice view of the lake. Our site was level and easy to back into. The bathrooms/showers were clean, but with lukewarm water. Our site Number 94 was spacious. During our week's stay, we found it peaceful here. We signed up at the visitor center for a lake tour, which was very informative. The staff were all friendly and made us feel welcome. The lake was amazing, with lots of coves to explore, and fishing. Boats and fishing gear can be rented at the marina. We walked the trails and shorelines. Easy access to everything.

It was an amazing experience to camp here. This refuge houses big cats and bears. Our Site Number 1 was located behind tigers Emmy and BamBam. We frequently heard the roaring of lions. We were told we'd see deer and coyotes at night around the campground, too. There are 6 sites and a few tenting sites. There is no TV, cable or internet. Our sewer hookup was located behind our camper instead of the side, but we were only visiting 1 night. Remember, the reason you're camping here is for the experience of camping alongside big cats and bear. The staff here is very nice and informative and you can see they love what they do.

We got here late and called the phone number posted and left a message and we were phoned back quickly, given our site number (You must reserve a site here). Our back-in site was a tight squeeze due to the cars parked about. Our site had a concrete pad and full hookup, no grill or fire pit. The bathrooms were clean. The campground was almost full, but it was quiet.

It took us an extra hour to find our way to this gated campground. The address given on our billing receipt is the Admin Bldg on the other side of the lake. As also noted on our receipt, we had to find our way back to Highway 470, Exit 14, as that is the only way to find this campground. We found this whole park to be very confusing and signed poorly. Our pull thru site wasn't level so the helpful and friendly campground host helped us find an alternative site for the night. The bathrooms were very clean, but there was no hot water and no hand soap for our October visit. We saw several deer roaming the campground.

This campground is also a horse ranch. If you enjoy spending time with horses you can opt to take a guided horseback ride or interact with Bucky the horse. Our site was level (Site 1). With ease we were hooked up. We were pleased to find out we have Wi-Fi here and some TV channels. Sites are very spacious and there are a lot of oak trees and shade. There are a few seasonal campers here. Besides the horses there's a playground, volleyball court, horseshoes. You can drive 3 miles to the Hartman State Park where you can swim, explore and rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboards. The owner gave us sweet corn for supper two nights in a row and all staff joined us for a volleyball game.

Beautiful park! We backed into our site 19e, which was tricky due to a curve in the road, trees and boulders, and as we were setting up we remembered there's no water at this campground. Just electricity. The sites are spacious. Walking distance to paths to explore the hillside overlooking the lake/river. The bathrooms and showers were clean.

Sites are grassy, but when it rains it's muddy by the camper. The cost adds up here because there's a reservation fee and a permit fee to get in the campground on top of the campground nightly fee. We weren't aware of the NO PETS in the campground policy until we received the reservation confirmation. It seems the reservation email is the only information you'll get about the park and the rules of the park. We were out and about on Saturday and returned to the campground beyond the "1/2 hour after sunset" and we were locked out of the park. There was no way to get to the campground at this time. Parks and playgrounds are nice. We'll probably return only to visit the parks/playgrounds/beach in the future since we bought a season Washington County pass, but we won't camp here.

Absolutely beautiful campground, especially in October, located on Table Rock. Our site overlooked the marina, in a gated area, very close to the water. Check in took too long and then we got lost trying to find the campground area we were assigned to. Being gated in was a little bit of a hassle, but worth it for the view. Also a lot of boat traffic comes by because of our location. The sites are large and level. The bathrooms were very clean. When we dumped on our way out, we couldn't fully dump due to the dumping station being on a slight hill and the camper tilts away from the sewer hole.

Beautiful and spacious campground, located in a City park. The park located by the campground was really cool, with a covered bridge to walk through and a maze. Unfortunately we had to pick up garbage and dog waste before letting the kids run around our site. The site managers had quite a setup with fencing for their dogs and it was a little unsightly, but the City's okay with it. We were confused on "check-in" because it just involves filling out an envelope and inserting the money and, as the not very friendly cg manager let us know, we have to put the tag attached to the envelope on the clip located on the site number pole. The water connection was a distance away. We would stay here again, but next time stay longer so we can explore the town.

For years we passed by this campground on our way to Hayward and thought we should stay sometime. We finally did stay and we really enjoyed this campground! Campground host was super friendly. Our site #1 was right on Shell Lake and next to the boat launch. Sites all seemed very spacious. Our site wasn't very level and water and electric were quite a distance (used both hoses and electric cables). Bathrooms/showers were lacking cleanliness and privacy and my kids didn't like the bugs located within. Swimming was fun both by our camper and at the public beach located right next to campground. Water is clear and shallow for quite a distance.

Fisherman's paradise. As quoted from the back of their map, "Camping is an outdoor experience. Therefore, we do not give refunds due to the discomforts of nature or if you leave early." From our site 451 we had a view of the lake and we were nestled in the trees. Water/electric were accessible, our site was level. Signage in the campground was lacking as it was confusing to find the beach, docks, bait shop, bathrooms and our campsite. The roads felt very narrow (and dangerous) because of trees close to road, boat trailers (they were parked everywhere), pedestrians, golf carts, kids on bikes flying out of loops and campground sites. Bathrooms were clean with pay showers. Beach was small, but fun; playground was modern. Very spread out campground so golf carts are available to rent ($10 an hour). Can also rent hydro bikes, kayaks, canoes, fishing boats, pontoons. Wireless internet was $7.95 for a day, $13.95 2 days, $21.95 a week! If you like to fish or boat on the lake, this is the campground for you.

We are basing our stay on site number 68. Other sites looked great, but our site had much to be desired. (Only about a 12 -18 campsites actually have a lake front view.) Site was a flat, unlevel mound with very little room on each side before falling down the steep small hill. Water was on opposite side, basically taking all 50 feet of hose. There was no sewer cap. Our fire pit was under water 2 of 3 nights. The road was narrow and hard to maneuver. Restrooms were dirty. There are way too few showers (4) and toilets available for the 113 sites. Unfriendly campground attendant working in the office. When I told him of the fire pit being underwater for the second day he said nothing: no response. We had to sit in the office to use the purchased Wi-Fi and listened to a lot of his unhelpfulness to other customers. Says he's not from this area when asked about local restaurants and attractions. Public access to the beach required walking through a campsite. Our experience involved noisy neighbors staying up late around the campfire. On the plus side: trash cans are located conveniently throughout the campground and the campground is located near Gooseberry Falls, bike trails, the lighthouse, and Betty's Pies.

We enjoyed our midweek stay at this campground. Spacious sites with lots of shade. Each site seems to be separated with brush and trees. Our site Number 24e was slightly unlevel. Bugs weren't too bad: this time of year the little flies were pesty. The trash receptacle is located quite a distance away. The showers and restrooms were clean. They don't have a dump station. Expect to pay an extra $5 per day for a State vehicle permit. There are beautiful trails located in this park, including the quarry trail with a hike less than a mile to a small waterfall.

I appreciate the pride taken and hard work put into this campground. There can be lots of customers in the office buying snacks, coffee, bike rides, canoe trips, checking in, but the ladies in the office are extremely friendly and efficient. Our site needed some leveling. We were here when it rained and it was a mess! Dirt and tree parts were everywhere as there's not much grass here. (The ground here is mainly dirt and pine needles as there are tall pines everywhere.) Our site number 7 had good WiFi reception and one TV channel came in through our antenna. The bathrooms were clean (other than after the rain). There are lots of family-oriented activities with a little extra on the weekends.

We just stayed for an overnight as it was convenient off of I-90. The site wasn't level. The restrooms were clean. It was quiet in the evening when we stayed here even though the campground was full. The kids enjoyed the playground and swimming pool.
