James and Danika are wonderful hosts. I was a solo camper on the peninsula and had the most relaxing and beautiful time. The migration of birds on the water was a special treat. The hosts made sure I had firewood, starter logs and matches each night. I drove into the camp spot with my Subaru Outback and used my rooftop tent. There’s ample room to set up an outdoor cooking space - with picnic table and fire pit. The camp store has coffee and water and maps of the area. The hot outdoor shower is epic. This place is 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ I’ll definitely be back.

A gem in the middle of our trip! Absolutely a great spot to camp.. we stayed at site 35 and had the peninsula to ourselves, secluded and amazing views of the sunsets. The trees provided some much needed shade and the view of the mississippi with all the lilies and flowers.. amazing. Highly recommend taking advantage of the outdoor shower, even if you have one in your rig :) The hosts were wonderful, responsive and super accommodating! Thank you for a great stay!!!

We are completely in awe of Danika and James's hospitality and the breathtaking beauty of the the lotus lake!

Danika and James are so thoughtful about providing a peaceful and enjoyable camping experience. They planted a vegetable garden for campers to pick. We got to enjoy fresh, plump zucchini and squash. Another one of my favorite amenities of Spring Lake Campground is the outdoor shower; which has hot water! Danika and James checked on us and made sure we have everything we need. They're just good vibes and overall the best campground owners I've met!

The lotus lake boat experience during sunset was an unforgettable experience. It's like boating through the rivers of Southern Vietnam without having to pay for the expensive flight. I cannot express how much this is a must experience!

100% would recommend to anyone I know and would come again before the summer ends.

We had an enjoyable weekend out on the Peninsula!!! The owners of the campground are great hosts and are on site. They are very accommodating and have a very nice campground. We especially liked the open air shower!!! I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a nice place to get away for a weekend or longer!!!

We loved Danika's gorgeous camping space. We found ourselves watching the sunset across a lake full of lotus blooms. It was magical.
