We always stop at the campground to fill our water jugs with the clear, cold, artesian well water that is available. Runs 24 hours a day...locals stop to use verses bottled water! Best bargain in Washburn...free.

Stopped n with a motorcoach for a few days. The first site was unlevel but I found a site quite level. Great location to Washburn and the surrounding area, such as Bayview and Ashland. Park has a playground, beach, electric hookups and nice roads.

We stopped on a Sunday morning to walk around the park. There is a wooden dock that goes out into the lake. So we walked out to explore, and there was a young boy fishing. I started a conversation with him about what he catches...More
