This is a really neat resort with lots to do. It is well kept and managed. Pool is just the right size and very clean. The namesake lake seems to be underused, but it apparently has lots of fish and they have boats available. If you bring a kayak you may be the only one out there and it is basically 5 minutes from end to end, but there are other areas in this region to paddle if thats your thing. This resort is a true hybrid, and entertains adults as well as kids. Kids get a pool party and crafts on Saturday. For adults, there is a margarita bar with regular 'bags' tourneys, and on some Saturday nights, a live band playing until around 10 PM. A large proportion of the park is seasonal, but the daily area gets the prime spots near the pool, store, and shower-house. Its not the quietest campground, but is a good mix, and gets much quieter after the band shuts down. Ask about the weekend's agenda, or seek a site farther from the pool to get some distance from the band/stage. We were here on a rainy weekend and the band started about an hour late, so it ran until after 10:30, when the agenda said it would end at 9:30. Not a big deal, understandable I guess. Nearby is Timber Lake Playhouse, a summer stock professional theater that is surprisingly good for such a rural area. We saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. If you are here during the theater season, see what they are showing, they are really quite good. Timber Lake is a one of a kind resort with something for everyone, as long as you don't want to go to sleep too terribly early. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Well we came back after a 6 year break. No real reason other than we go to other places. This was Memorial Day weekend 2014. We had a full hook up site which was large and hand plenty of shade. The hookups were in good shape and the water pressure was excellent! Back in 2007 I gave this campground a "10" butl I can`t do that this time. A few reasons: the pool was green on Friday afternoon, which kind of shocked me because the owner took pride in his pool area. By Saturday the pool was cleared up, but was freezing. It was not anywhere near ready for the opening weekend. Then there was the issue of dogs running around unleashed! The family next to us had 3 dogs all not leashed. The guy 3 sites over also had a dog not leashed, that one came down to our site and crapped by us. We complained to the campground owner, but they didn't seem to care as they never came over to say anything and the same thing happened the next day. Our friends were in the site next to us and even their neighbors had a dog that wasn't leashed and running around their site! I did not expect this at this, what I thought was, a well run campground! And finally, golf carts! Way to many for this smaller campground. There was no real reason to have them here. I`m not against golf carts, but the size of this campground does not necessitate a golf cart. Not sure I would recommend this campground at this time due to the issues we ran into. Hopefully he gets it straightened out. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed this cg. Upon check in we were escorted to our site. Nice view of the lake and the wonderful new cabins. We would love to even come back in the winter to stay in a cabin. The pool area was wonderful, although closed for the season already. We were there for the first flea market weekend...next year I will bring some items to sell. Not allot of weekenders since it is toward the end of the season. Everyone was super nice...will be back...hopefully early in the season. Recommend this cg. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
