Beautiful, clean park with good distance between units. On lakeshore with lots of space to walk our dog. We stayed after Oct. 1, when they go to half-price rates for the off-season. Normal rates are $22. There were only 3 units at our end of the park, so it was very quiet. While our spot was dirt/grass, there were ample hard surface pads. Even so, we backed in to a level spot. This park would've rated a 9 or 10 except for 3 items:

1. As a city-owned park, you'd think city ordinances that might affect campers would be highlighted. Lake View has a city ordinance prohibiting pit bulls and rottweilers inside the city limits. The only thing the web site said was "Pets welcome"; no mention of breed restrictions. We didn't discover this until after we arrived, despite calling ahead to see if they'd have space and if dogs were OK. It's almost a month after our stay and there is still no mention of breed restrictions on the web site.

2. There were no registration forms for late arrivals in the box by the office. This meant no guidance on the breed restriction issue or anything else. We opted to take our chances and, if our Rottweiler caused an issue, I told the staff we'd be sure to mention these failings in court.

3. Because we arrived after the office closed, we had no ability to access the WiFi the first night because they require payment before giving you the password. This wasn't mentioned when I called ahead; I'd have given them a credit card number in advance. We camped at Camp Crescent in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For food, the real treat is Karen's Korner, a small town diner with big flavor food, drool-making desserts, and a down-home welcome. Four impressive meals in three days. Breakfast is a must! Walk though the veteran's memorial - a very dignified tribute to the area's warriors. Take several walks along the lake; it's the southern-most glacial lake in the U.S. Very pretty, especially on a moonlit evening.

A very clean park but sites are very close together. Sites are gravel and easy to get into. Cell phone and internet card worked well. Would stay here again if in area. We camped at Camp Crescent in a Motorhome.

We stay here frequently. Playground for kids, sand beach, mini-golf. Sometimes they don't have enough fire rings, but that usually only happens when the place is full. We camped at Camp Crescent in a Motorhome.

Interesting minature golf, but it wasn't open yet when we were there. Place needs a little work. Needs gravel in holes in the sites. Needs cable TV since you can't get a clear picture on your TV. I think 17 dollars is a little high for what you get. Cough, cough. Hate the fire rings. Cough, cough. Otherwise a nice quiet place, except weekends. We camped at Camp Crescent in a Fifth Wheel.
