“Nice, rustic lake resort”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

Stayed here with my wife and a friend in separate cabins for a friend's wedding. It's an RV park with additional small cabins. We stayed in the smallest of the cabins because they were the only ones available. Definitely worth the price we paid. Decently clean and quaint, but you obviously get what you pay for in terms of amenities. We actually were able to use our friends' houses around the lake for lake access so I can't speak about that. Owner was very nice and offered a lot of advice about the area. He even offered up a bag of charcoal for our grill so that we wouldn't have to run back out to get some for ourselves. The floor was extremely dirty, but some of that might have been us tracking in dirt from the outside on our shoes because our friend's cabin was not as bad. Also, in the small cabins only enough hot water for 10min, so I showered in the community outhouse while my wife used the private shower in our cabin. Really good access to the peninsula and Chester.

Would recommend for a really cheap stay in the area if you aren't looking for high-class amenities and are used to "roughing it".
