Hosts very pleasant. Lots of trees and a nice area. We did not notice the Christmas tree and children next door, but they were OK after awhile. Water hook up was a long way, so we used our own. We camped at Swan Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a month in July, 2012. Site host was great. Long-term spaces are pull through, but most are very tight for a 36' 5er (getting out was a You-Tube moment), internet was just fair, TV reception was OK, but not great, really nice neighbors mostly, pet friendly. The best camping site are mostly tent sites or not full service sites, but lake is great with beautiful evening walks. We camped at Swan Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

22811 Swan Lake Dr. Carroll. Big lake with reportedly with big fish. Boats available, small beach. Full service sites are 30 amp and a little tight with no grass. Many semi-isolated sites that are dry or tents are scattered among the hundreds of acres of well kept park. There is a bicycle path around the stocked 150+ acre lake. Buffalo and rescued Bald Eagles are on site along with a pair of Whooping Cranes, and a nature center. I would have given it a higher rating if not for the tightness of the full service area and lack of a camp store. Our 40 footer could have used a little more room and more amps. I would, however, stay here again. We camped at Swan Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
