  • First time here, the campsites are all clean, washrooms are a lot cleaner than some other places I've been to. This is a great campground and looking forward to future visits here. Lots of sites by the lake, plug ins were super handy. Loved our time here
  • Nice campground with decent privacy, very clean bathrooms and free showers. Sites can be tighter than they look online so be aware that you may have to do some maneuvering when you get there. The trail system is well maintained. Little to no access to the lake but a beautiful view of it from the "cliffs".
  • I enjoy it out there except there's no beach to go to but campsites aren't to close together bathrooms are very clean so I'm happy I don't have to use an outhouse... Will return again next year as my daughter and her boyfriend really enjoy it out there they come all the way from Medicine Hat
  • Wow what a hidden gem! I’ve lived here 3 years and never knew it existed. We’re coming camping here very soon. Also the view of the town lights is super pretty at night!!
  • This place rocks. Great group camp spots. Go here once a year with a great group of friends.
