We arrived at Moose Track Adventures during a wet, rainy week. Didn't matter, glad to be there and not at work. We have a small tent and was very please with the campsite. There are only 4 sites, two on the water (Farm Lake) and the other two across the way. Not very crowded, compared to other campsites in the area and the other campers were nice. It was clean, quiet, and well maintained. Each of the four sites has access to electricity and water. We had access to the campsite dock for our boat and once the wind stopped, we caught fish! There was a garbage area nearby which was frequently emptied by the same fella who cleans the fish guts out of the fish house.
There is a shower house/toilet for women. Nothing fancy, but the water was always hot and I oddly never had to wait for a shower. There was even a heater in the shower building. Nice.
The first day, Jim invited us to the lodge/main house for wine and cheese as there were no fish to be fried due to the horrible wind and rain. I had a fun time meeting the other guests and listening to Jim's storytelling. He is good (ask him about his quickest high school wrestling match).
Joan was the perfect hostess, offering us tips and advice. I appreciated her sincere interest in our trip. The resident dog, Maggie was a nice addition. She visited us every morning and evening as if to check-in and make sure we were ok.
We would go back anytime. I didn't hear any complaints from anyone about the cabins or campsites.
I don't have children, but others did. Those kids seemed to be having a very nice time. Lots of silly laughter and running around.
