Camp host/owner Ron takes great pride in his little retreat, it is a very popular vacation spot with it's own private beach. Making reservations even if there is what seems like no openings Magic Ron will juggle this, juggle that, and he came up with a spot for us so we could enjoy the lake with friends that already had...

I have been visiting Lake Five for years as a solo camper. I have always felt safe and Ron, the camp owner and host, works to ensure your stay is one to remember. Kayaking on this lake has been a saving grace for me. I can't wait till next year. Sleep deep this winter, Lake Five~

Healing water it is. All water heals though as long as it tastes good and feels good, smells good and looks good. It's all sensation if it's right and our little corner in the world is about sensation and sharing and joy. Love. That adds up to healing and our poor old world needs as much as it can get.... More

We love Lake Five. We have 4 kids and take them to Lake Five whenever we can. Even after a 10 plus hour drive they rave about Lake Five for days. Very fun place where you can relax, enjoy time on the water, read and just enjoy mother nature. Fun never ends and we will go back anytime we can.... More

Thanks for such a nice review and sorry for taking such a long time replying. Geez! You'd think I went all the way into hibernation instead of just half. Even a bear has to wake up now and then in the cave of winter so here goes. Stress relief and memories for kids that last a lifetime. Those two things... More

Thanks for the nice review. We’re going to keep at it and keep dipping as long as our shoulders hold up for dipping or the doctors keep providing replacements. We will stay family friendly and pet friendly and hope to continue being worthy of your family’s patronage and participation. Thanks —Ron More

Our family has been enjoying Lake 5 for 33+ years and every year gets better!!! Ron has made wonderful improvements over the years to make our stay more enjoyable and his colorful character adds to the pristine beauty of Lake 5.

Thirty-three years is a long time. Thanks for noticing improvements as we move through the years. Sometimes it gets difficult coming up with an upgrade that customers can see. Sometimes it’s just a better water pump providing increased pressure or another layer of gravel on the roads. Not all folks notice. Next year is going to be the one hundredth... More

Lake Five has been our home away from home for 33 years. We are working on four generations that have come to Lake Five. The beauty is not appreciated until seen, but once there you will understand.

Lake Five Resort has been my summer home for over 20 years. Ronnie O has made this resort a place of its own. Nothing beats the well manicured place and the variety of people we get to meet as they find the Lake Five secret resort. The lake is fairly small but a perfect size for an early morning ski...

Thanks for the Ronnie O review Goob. I think Trip Advisor shies away from posting reviews and replies that suggest correspondence is occurring between friends. Man alive! If that was the case we couldn’t get many TA reviews cuz almost everybody coming in the door are friends or will be a friend before they go home. It’s pretty neat for... More

Our family has been going to Lake Five Resort for over 20 years. Before that, I was fortunate to go there with a family friend for many years growing up. Once you have stayed there, you will have that "lake five" memory become a part of you. We are now lucky enough to be in the group of "seasonal campers"... More
