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

You said it. "If you're lucky enough to live at the lake, you're lucky enough." We’re all lucky. I know how lucky I am. I’ve had a wonderful life at Lake Five. I wouldn’t trade with anybody I know about or have read about in the history of the world. Even better and a huge cause for my joy is... More

I booked one night for myself and dog at Lake Five (kind of last minute) on my way to Canada to visit friends last week............ Now, I had stayed (and 2 dogs) at Lake Five for three nights July 2012 in cheapest/ communial bath cabins and it was great. A friend had turned me on to the place back then.Girlfriends... More

What a fun review. If not on the top, yours is one of the best. Thank you. Wonderfully thought through and written with care. Nice writing. Your visit hit to perfection, Montana's Indian Summer. I bet you and I were the last bare skinned swimmers in Lake Five for 2014. I swam to the middle of the lake that day... More

We stayed for 1 night whilst travelling around the NW from Wyoming and Montana. This has to be one of the best campsites for location and waking up with beautiful views of the lake was amazing. . Thanks for a wonderful evening. Rachel

We're happy you found Lake Five if for only one night. Please try to return when you have some more time. It's busy out there for sure but our specialty is slowing it down—making all of that stuff a little easier to take. We hope to see you again. More

We stayed at Lake Five Resort for two nights in early September. We stayed in one of the cabins and it was one of the best experiences we've ever had! Very pleasantly surprised by this place. The cabin was perfectly clean and had such character. The price to stay is also very reasonable. The lake is absolutely beautiful. We rented... More

Thanks for choosing the Lake Five Resort and thanks for the nice review. There must be some pretty nice places in the hills of Pennsylvania so an attaboy coming from the Keystone State with all that history is a feather in our cap. Montana has a different sort of history and we're running on a hundred years next year at... More

This is honestly the most beautiful place I have ever camped. It's also the cleanest, and most well taken care of! There is a lot of love put into maintaining it, you can tell. Ron was super friendly and interesting to talk to. The lake is perfect, you can see straight to the bottom it is so clear!

Thanks for noticing and realizing we try hard for zero in the litter department. Our rules are no litter and be nice and we don't know why the rest of the world hasn't figured it out. Kind of elementary isn't it? If we see it we pick it up and we love having customers willing to help by not littering... More

We stayed from Sunday night through Thursday morning in cabin 9. The cabin was great, clean and cozy. I would recommend renting a canoe and making a lap around the lake. The water is crystal clear and the views from the resort are amazing.The owners are good people and have an outstanding resort/campground. Thanks again from Minnesota!! Cody and Sara

It's a pleasure having a customer from the land of a thousand lakes liking our place. We don't have quite as many lakes in Montana because we have more mountains so the lakes have to tuck in where they can. We're pleased with the way our little Lake Five tucks between the Smokies, Desert and Strawberry. We're happy you and... More

Loved this place!! I stayed here for several days in early August with my husband and my parents in Cabins 8 and 9. The lake is absolutely gorgeous - the lake itself would probably make this hotel worth the visit. We had planned to spend our last day lounging by the water (the prior days were spent doing day hikes... More

Good reviews from folks familiar with the luxury of New York City are especially rewarding. Years ago when my father would be confronted with an occasional complaint, way before TripAdvisor mind you, he would say, "It's not the Ritz." I took to embellishing my ol' daddy's phrase. I tell people, "It's not the Ritz but it is somewhere between freedom... More

Excellent. If cabin 10 produces such a pleasing response, number 1 could be too much. Might make for more than the best sleep of the trip. September is pretty awesome too. Same great coffee with a ten or twenty percent reduction in price. Thanks for the review. —Ron More

Camped at the Lake 5 resort last week and had a blast! Our sites were right on the lake and we had no problem fitting in a couple extra trailers when we needed to!

You guys fit in great. Our kind of customers and you're welcome any time. Don't hold your breath on our digging a hole for a swimming pool though. Probably won't be happening. Thanks for the attaboy and the bonus for the emergency pump. It was the best. —Ron More
