Great place to camp and Vicky and her husband were very accommodating! Beautiful scenic sites and if needed, a short walk to the communal kitchen, patio and restrooms. There are lakes, hikes and off roading trails close by. We can't wait to come back!

The important thing to know about Campsite in the Willows and the two other sites on the creek is that they are about 40 feet from highway 4 so road noise will be present. Highway 4 does quiet down significantly at night, but there will be the sporadic car/truck/motorcycle passing you while you are sleeping.

Vicky was a great host and told us we could take one of the empty sites behind the lodge instead. We ended up in site #4 and were quite comfortable. Cars on the highway can still be heard but they were far enough away to not be a bother.

The kitchen facilities and deck were great. Our 5-year-old had a blast playing with other kids/dogs which allowed us to relax on the deck with books and drinks.
