We had a very pleasant week at Camp Driftwood. My only complaint is that our cabin was not directly on the water. We had about a 5 minute walk to the water/docks. There are plenty of kayaks and canoes for all the guests, which made for some great daily paddling! Indian Lake is quite large with plenty of beautiful areas... More

This was a perfect place to take my 2 teenagers and 2 of their friends. I have done a lot of camping in various conditions and didn't want to do that with other peoples kids yet. This wasn't camping- this was house renting! We stayed in Apple- not directly on the water but with a view of the lake. 3BR... More

We spent a wonderful week at Camp Driiftwood last August. This camp is old-school. We had a cozy woodsy cabin with a wood stove and a fire pit. The beds were lovely. The kitchen was equipped for cabin cooking, no food processor, but plenty of what you need when you're at camp. The cabins are separated by natural areas so... More

My boyfriend and I have been coming to Camp Driftwood two or three times a year for the past 4 years. We love staying at these beautifully crafted wood cabins that are built right on the water, with amazing views of Indian Lake, access to canoes, and outdoor stone barbecues. John and his wife are extremely accommodating hosts who've clearly... More

We've been going to the camp happily for a decade. Their newest cabin, Chestnut, was wonderful. Wood burning stove, pine interior, airy, large screened porch, and great view of the lake. We canoed, hiked, fished, watched stars and left noisy, stressful society behind for a spell. We will be back again. Ed M.

Loved our little cabin. Very peaceful and plenty to keep us busy for a 3-4 day autumn stay. Hosts were very helpful and accessible. Cabin was spotless. In addition to linens, you'll need bar and dish soap and a couple of rolls of toilet paper.

It was my fiance's birthday and as a surprise to him, I booked a stay in the Hemlock cabin. It was quite a nice, well-equipped cabin with a secluded view of the lake. It was charming, rustic, and romantic. He loved it almost as much as his dog. Neat and clean, so small, but a lot of room. The only... More

Me, my boyfriend, and our two dogs stayed in Hemlock cabin for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. The cabin was extremely charming and more spacious than it looks, there was a second bedroom that we never used. The dogs loved hanging out on the porch. Our whole stay was extremely peaceful and quiet.

My family of four just wrapped up our third stay at Camp Driftwood. My youngest is almost 2 years-old, and his brother is 5. My 5 year-old and I love to borrow a two-seater kayak and row out on the lake to go exploring. We switched cabins from "Apple," which is lovely, to "Birch" this year. Both cabins are beautiful...
