Backwater Paradise has possibilities for several camping styles. whether you bring your own, need accommodation, easy tenting or choose to go deep and experience raw wilderness/survival at any season. The property has 2 access points. The first one coming from 557 is to a marsh to the left (east) and several new tent sites that we have starting calling "Left Field". You are literally 'out in left field'. Depending on your vehicle and site you choose, walking in may be your only option. The second entrance is very well marked and leads to the lake (west). This is where RVs are able to access, where the easy tent sites are and where the camper trailer is. All nature watchers and sky gazers will enjoy any space we have here. Moose, bald eagles. wolves, otters, beavers, owls and several species of migratory birds are common visitors. In the lake there is plenty of bass and pike to keep a fisher and kid fishers busy. We promote 'lake 2 plate' principles and if you need anything let us know!! All campers have use of the water front no matter where your site is. On the shore of the lake front is a very large common area and firepit for everyone to access the water. We host fires Friday and Saturday nights weather permitting in this space.. There are several firepit rings to allow campers to have their own site fire. We also have some small row boats available to rent, the latest addition is the paddle boat rental. There is 30 acres of mixed forest, lake and marsh here and now we are able to be open year round.

Highly recommended place to camp.
Jackie was a fantastic host. She greeted me shortly after I arrived and let me know that I could use the peddle boat if I wanted and where the firewood was in case I wanted to have a campfire. I had the campsite all to myself and it was a beautiful spot. It’s also an amazing place for stargazing. I would definitely come back here again.

Beautiful spot & pet friendly
My boyfriend and I spent a night here during our travels and loved the spot! It's right on a small lake with a beautiful view, big fire pit and nice out-house. Jackie was so friendly and kind to us during our stay as well. 🙂 Thanks, Jackie!

Amazing rustic camping experience
Just what I was looking for. Quiet, secluded area not far from town. Great fishing and an amazing host. Can't wait till next year definitely going back it's exactly what I wanted for camping.

Our tent spot was right on the water. Such a beautiful private lake. The bathroom was clean and nice. Loons nearby were singing beautifully. Jackie is fun and cool and nice!

Backwater Paradise 4 Season Camping
Awesome experience. Rustic lakeside retreat. Jackie is a super cool host and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Loons visited us at sunset. We had the whole lake to ourselves. She has a great thing going on here.
