My boyfriend and I just returned from a 3 night stay at Wilson Pond Camps and are already planning our trip back next year. Owners Martine and Bob were very friendly and great about answering any questions we had about directions, activities, etc. We kayaked and saw bald eagles, fished right off the dock, played card games, bbq'd and ate smores by the firepit, even took the kayak out at night to look at the stars. We woke up at 5am one morning to go on a Moose Safari, with Martine and Bob's son, Chris, and saw 4 moose! The camp is located close enough to Greenville Center to grab a bite to eat in town, but far enough away to feel like you're away from it all. Don't worry too much about having to drive on gravel roads, just remember to take it slow. We took our itty-bitty Honda Fit on this trip and down 15 miles of gravel roads to do a hike, and lived to tell :).
