Incredible natural beauty, nice cabins, nice easy going staff. First time up there, but will stay here again when we come back up. Lots of water activities to do on site, and located central to the parks and trails.

There are a ton of things Good things to say about this place. The atmosphere is great. The owners of the resort are so welcoming and always make it a point to say hello. The beach is beautiful. I’ve been to this place five years, and just finally got into the sauna and then jumped in the lake in the late evening. It was fantastic. The kids love it because the activities are plentiful, and we always meet nice people. I have stayed in many of the cabins, and have not been disappointed.

Went up to CWC for a weekend trip with my family. We loved the location and the resort. Units were fully furnished with dish and utensils. None of the unites had locks, though place is very private and secure. Beach is fairly clean. Highway is near by so you will hear some car noise at a distance. At night you may hear fox howling. (Clocks in the unit also had howling sound every hour). Fun place to sit back relax and enjoy the North.
