  • We love going to Shawnee lake as a family! Its a great place to grill and take the kids to the playground. It is also great for walking, riding bikes, playing frisbee, or any family sport. I love bein...  more »
  • My husband had several meetings in the area, so we chose Lake Shawnee to camp. I'm so glad we did! My husband travels in the RV for several months per year, and I am with him as I can. The staff were ...  more »

  • Lake Shawnee is such a Beautiful place. They have great walking trail/path that have 1/4 miles markers making it easy to track your distance. Also, they have a magnificent garden area (Ted Ensley Garden) that is great to visit, especially when the tulip's are in full bloom. There is so much more beauty that can be described about Lake Shawnee that this comment section cannot withstand it all. A must see place.
  • Was not impressed! Not happy about having to put our tent in rocks. There was a man and a women we had to run out of the women's bath house. Too many rules about setting up camp. If I can fit more than one tent in a site without bothering neighbors I think you should be able too! There was a triathlon going on and we had trouble getting in and out of camp...plus we could not boat. NO one told us this... Paid for a camp spot that didn't get ised!
  • Great family-friendly outdoor activities. Especially to the yacht club and their kindness and teaching my eight year old son all about sailboats
  • What a beautiful lake. There's a trail for riding and biking. You can fish, boat or just settle and meditate. There are shelter houses for rent and playground for kids. Pack a lunch and make an afternoon of it. There is an RV park on site as well.
  • Lake Shawnee has remained beautiful. Fish was also stocked more this year. Makes for a better outing.
