BIG lots that actually have grass (pic of our lot for size). Very friendly staff, owners and fellow campers. Everything is extreamly clean and well maintained. They split and sell wood (from their farm here) and have a propane filling station as well. Two clubhouses, showers, laundry, small store, new in ground pool, kayaks for rent, pet friendly, good Wi-Fi. Only downside is no full hookup lots, however the offer honey wagon pump outs and have dump stations. Not many rules, some will only allow you to pull on certain ways, limits on what you can do at your lot, nothing like that here....just be kind and considerate. We are planning to come back in a couple weeks already!

Great relaxing atmosphere fun place to bring the family. Wonderful people, they are also kid and pet friendly. Picnic tables and fire pits at each site. Water and electric to each site and a dump station for sewer. They have a Lake with good fishing, and swimming. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest and nicest I have seen at a campground.

The owners have put lots of time and money into improvements in the last few years. The sites are larger, they have a pavilion, and a new office with restrooms up front. All of the sites have grey water drains, electric, and water. There are always activities for the family all summer. Fishing in great in the no-motor lake. It reminds me of the old neighborhood feel, where everyone knows their neighbors. Whether you spend a weekend, a week, a month, or the whole summer, Lakeside Resort is the place to relax and have FUN!

The lots are roomy, and well kept, the majority of campers here are seasonals who are very friendly and welcoming. Showers and bathrooms are clean and well lit. There are many activities scheduled throughout the summer with an amazing fireworks display for the Fourth of July. Relaxing place to stay, no worries about the kids riding bikes, playing on the playgrounds or hiking in the wooded trails. Speed limit is posted at five miles per hour for safety, there is a small store, ice, firewood and laundry facilities. All in all a great place for a weekend, week or the summer.

A small group of us camped here recently. Most of the campers on location were seasonal. Some of those were well kept (mostly toward the front of the campground) while others were in various states of disrepair. Some had so much junk and clutter around them that there appeared to be no guidelines as to the maintenance of one's site. Our three sites overlooked some very unkempt seasonal trailers and behind those trailers was an unmowed field with deserted trailers past that. If this campground wants to attract weekend campers, this is not the location to keep campers coming back. The picnic tables were dilapidated and needed painting. We did not use the showers/bathrooms so I can't comment on that. Many of the seasonal campers had dogs. I don't mind the dogs so much as the barking and yipping, especially in the wee hours of the night. Campground rules state that dogs should be on a 6 foot leash. The dogs around us were not always on a leash, let alone a 6 foot leash. The dogs across from us often could be found walking in the road or on our site. One of these dogs actually came over to our site and defecated, leaving one of our group members to clean it up as the owners did not even know the dog was not on their site. The family behind us kept their dog tied up to the picnic table without food or water. In general, this campground was run down and if it wants to attract more seasonal campers, it needs to spruce things up a bit and provide guidelines to the seasonal campers on maintaining their site.
