What a wonderful place to spend a weekend! great staffs (chelsea & kelsea), free sit on canoes was the highlight as our group really enjoyed it as most of us are first timers, fishing deck, pool, kids park and all awesome activities. NO wifi! we will return for sure. -bala

We have stayed at a few campgrounds and this was our favorite. We have two kids 12 and 6 and they were both entertained with the activities. This is dog friendly place. Everything was clean! and well maintained , staff is super friendly!

The previous comments say it all: friendly staff, great spot for our tent, free canoes in the lake- we will be back! The playground was really nice too. If you forgot anything - the shop has the campground essentials, too. Thanks for the memorable stay. And the "bear aware" signs are there for good reason...

The Great Divide is a fantastic place for a quick (or long!) getaway. I unfortunately could only stay for 24 hours but the owners and employees could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They even called us on the way to our site to let us know we could park at the site next door for added room. It's... More

We (my boyfriend and I) do not have children and we camp just the 2 of us. This campground had so many families and children staying and there were several activities planned all weekend........Yet we didn't feel crowded or that there were too many people there at all. We felt our campsite had privacy and none of the amenities were... More
