Reviewed August 25, 2011

We spent 2 nights in one of the two cabins before dropping off a child at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp (about 6 miles and 15 minute drive away). The cabin was basic but clean (except the ceiling fan - dust haven!!). It had a double bed and 2 single (bunked) beds, along with a desk, a chair, and a bench.. I suspect the cabin itself was larger than a hotel room, but only about one-quarter the price of any hotel rooms in that area during the summer season. The bathroom is a couple hundred yards away, and the lighting is adequate to find your way there in the middle of the night.

The owners were very accommodating and helpful to me. We tried to reserve a cabin for 2 nights but it was not available, so settled on a trailer. Then she called me back within an hour to say there had been a cancellation in a cabin, so she offered it to me. This saved me a bit of money, and met our needs perfectly. They were also helpful and friendly while we were on site.

There is a small playground, picnic shelter, horseshoe pit, etc. The office has sports balls for kids to use (when it is open). Big Blue Lake is across the street and about 1/4 mile in (although it was not clear to us from our brief jaunt over there whether or not you could swim at that nearby spot).

We saw other families camping with RVs and pop-ups and the like. I'm not sure if we saw any tent campers. I don't think I would want to camp in a tent for any length of time - the site is pretty basic and there's not much privacy. But if you want to stay overnight on your way to Blue Lake F.A.C., it's perfect for that! And get directions to Dog 'N Suds in Montague for an old-fashioned drive-up meal. :^)

Very small campsites, rude owners and loud music playing after midnight.
