We camped The Great Divide for 3 days and 2 nights in August. The campground was very clean and the staff worked day and night to upkeep the property. Everyone we encountered were friendly and helpful. Our site was perfect for the 2 of us and was well maintained. The pool area was nice but the lake was pretty small... More

We travel in a motor home and were searching for a place to spend a long weekend. We settled on The Great Divide and were glad we did! The campground has a Beautiful Mountain setting with large sites and grassy areas. If camping in a tent their tent sites are the nicest we've seen for both individual and group camping.... More

It was very clean and neat and all the staff were pleasant. The had some kids programs, but our 7yr old son preferred playing with other kids, kayaking/row boat,... More

I booked this place months in advance, only to come up and have an awful time. This campground is extremely poorly run. The cabin we rented did not have screens on one window, and the rug got wet. They have poorly marked roads in the campground, and I wound up in a ditch, ruininig my bike. The owners are completely... More

Dear Customer, We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone and we will exercise this right when a guest is verbally abusive to our staff, owner and continually use profanity in front of children and other guests. We are a family campground with an amazing staff and larger community of close knit seasonals. This is more than a business... More

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...
