Chris and Angela were amazing hosts. The site had everything we needed upon arrival and they even gave us information about the surrounding areas. The campsite is also right on the lake and next to a huge sauna which was a big plus . Not to mention they had kayaks and canoes they allowed us to use .

Place was exactly what we wanted! Campsite right on the lake, fire pit, quiet (even though it was the 4th of July and there were a lot of boats going by it wasn't to loud at all!) The outhouse was clean and felt like a real bathroom, showers were clean and water was nice and hot! Our site was clean and had enough trees around to supply some good shade during the day and set up a tarp for protection from the rain. The lake is beautiful. Angela and Chris were absolutely amazing hosts! If you are looking to go camping with a touch of glamping this place is definitely the spot to go. Also there is a Walmart and a few other stores only about 20 minutes away which was very convenient! Our last day there we were shown around one of the cottages as well which we will definitely be looking into renting in the future.

Incredible place with extremely friendly and accommodating hosts. My wife and I stayed for two nights, swam, paddle boarded, and hit the sauna with a few cold plunges in between. We didn't want to leave and we will certainly be back.

The spot was just right for what I was looking for, nice area, private but not remote. Great amenities and overall awesome atmosphere.

Angela was very friendly and helpful and I look forward to a return trip in the future.

We had an amazing time at the campsite at North Shore Woods this weekend! Chris, Angela and their son, Jackson were great hosts. The campsite is right by a traditional wood fire sauna and it'a also right by the lake! Lots of activities, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, canoeing, etc. There are also small "islands" on the lake that you can explore! The only thing we regret about was not booking enough nights. We are ready to go back to stay longer next time! Thank you so much!

The site was absolutely gorgeous and we had an amazing time! We would highly recommend staying here. Angela and her family were extraordinarily accommodating and made us feel very welcome on their property. Absolutely zero complaints! The site was perfect, the lake was perfect, the sauna was perfect, the host was perfect! We even got to use all of their water sporting amenities like kayaks, canoes and a stand up paddle board! The site already felt well worth the price but adding in the additional water sporting activities made this trip and site even more spectacular. If you want to enjoy a beautiful lake alongside a loving family that accommodates and welcomes you, choose this site!
