  • We stopped here for one night on our return from Minnesota. One of the worst campgrounds I've stayed at. We are in the middle of a field. Not one lousy tree. No shower or bathroom within 1/2 mile. And...  more »
  • $10 tank fills for divers is a plus. 56 degree temps in "The Hole" are a minus. Plan on a 7mm wetsuit even at the end of July. Visibility in the afternoon was several feet. It didn't help that the "ad...  more »
  • Visited Pearl Lake for the second time this past weekend and had a great time. We took 7 students over with us and had some fun dives. The visibility was great (20+ feet). Will diffidently go back.  more »

  • My favorite place for a dive! Crystal clear water for both SCUBA and beach going. No murky water here! Super warm water. Since it isn't huge, it isn't ice cold like Lake Michigan. Well taken care of and friendly staff! Pricy to get in but worth it. You can tell they put the price of admission into keeping it beautiful.
  • Picnic are really Small , it close at 5, if you are not getting in the beach you have to pay$ 15/per person (5 yrs and older) just for use the park. Not enough tables , all is cash , staff is rude. You can not bring your camp house. The view is pretty but Not going back soon .
  • 60$ a night is as much as a hotel... to stay in something you already own. Place looks great online. But that defeats the purpose of taking your motorhome
  • I give Pearl Lake camping one star. This is not a place to camp. Only swimming access was to a swimming pond. Can not bring alcohol to the beach. They make you buy their alcohol. No miller products sold. Swimming pond has metal signs in it, ropes everywhere. Also Whatever you do, do NOT camp here if you have a family. You can hear the highway traffic. Nothing for the kids to do except for the beach, which is only open from 10am-5pm. Our site was in the direct sun, no trees. Kids did not even go the park, because it was probably built in the 1970's. Too many rules. Brittle firewood for four pieces for $7. It is by far the worse campground we ever have been to.
  • They up the price every year and they don't have anything special it's ridiculous. Much rather pay a extra ten to go to magic waters!
