We stayed at this campground for a long weekend and had a great time. It was a perfect spot on Drummond, and the owner was very helpful with recommendations. We stayed at one of the cabins near the water, and it was a beautiful spot! There was working wifi in the office if needed, and even ice cream for a dollar. You can tell the owners really care about this place and their guests! Thank you for a great stay.

Our group rented 4 side by side cabins for a week long stay. It is a great spot for a group trip! We rented a boat and kayaks for the week and they were throughly enjoyed by everyone in our group. Amy and Mike are great hosts and were always available to answer any questions we had.

First, Papin's isn't luxury accomodations and the cabins we were in, were a bit north of rustic. Livable, but definitely could use some upgrades. Other cabins may or may not be better. We arrived to find our cabin #4 clean and well equipped although they could add a few hooks in the bath for a towel or two. This is basically a fishing camp and it appeared they cater to family groups that have been customers for years. The owners are more than hospitable. The docks are well maintained, there's a fish cleaning station, fire pits, satellite TV, and wifi available in a 24 hr. lounge.

We stayed for a week and can't say enough good things about Papin's ! Our cabin was a work of art with imperfect artistic touches and super comfy for 5 girls. Kitchen was fully stocked with every cooking item we needed. Firewood is included and a fire under the stars is a must do! Go see it!
