About

This is a wonderful campground that we first discovered in 2021, with a wide variety of sites, from electrical serviced to non-serviced. We were fortunate enough to have chosen a fairly treed site that offered privacy and shelter from wind. Your Leisure Travel Van will have no problem fitting in these deep sites. There are two sections to the campground, with Bay 5 being closer to the waterfront and the concession store and Bays 1 to 4 being up a slight hill and a little further from the water. Be aware that the walk to the beach and boat docks is a steep hill that does offer handicapped parking.

Best sites or attractions here

We were in Bay 5, site 29, and it was the closest walk/bike ride to the waterfront. Sites 16 to 33 would be our most desired sites, offering trees and protections from the elements. The sites in Bays 1 -3 were very large, but you would most likely need to drive to get to the waterfront.

Campground amenities

Beach, boat launch, drinking water, dumping station, electric sites, hiking trails, wildlife viewing, waterfront concession store and restaurant (great place for ice cream or burgers)

Nearby Attractions

The main reason for people staying at this location would be to fish The Lake of the Prairies. We were fortunate enough to have a brother who lives nearby and took us fishing out on the lake with his boat. There were also people catching walleye from the docks. There are boat rentals (small 14-foot aluminum) but you do need to bring your own life jackets during COVID-19 protocol times. Hiking takes you through the ski hills in the area. The town of Inglis is nearby and a place to pick up needed items. The Shellmouth Dam and Reservoir is great to check out and would require taking your LTV for a short drive away from the campground.
