Great spot and great folks! The campsite is well appointed and perfect for small children. The owners went the extra mile and mailed back a lost stuffed animal. Will be back!

Quiet lakefront camping
We had a great time camping on this family's property for two nights. It was so very quiet and peaceful. If you want privacy, opt for site 2 as site 1 is very close to the main house and dock. We took a pop up and found everything we needed: connections for power and water, lots of firewood, string lights when we needed some extra light, and an ultra clean porta potty. We borrowed a canoe for a quiet paddle each morning. The outdoor shower privacy situation might not be for everyone as it is on one side of the main house and open view to the water, but it it was hot! We enjoyed it. Our hosts were very friendly, went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Unlike one of the reviews on here, they gave us plenty of space to enjoy the beautiful scenery on our own and did not crowd us after checking in. We are pretty social though, so we accepted a nice pontoon ride at sunset one day and private hike through their property early morning of our departure day. I would definitely book again soon. We went in the fall (October) so not sure if there are actual chiggers, the lake's namesake, we had no problems with insects. LGBTQ-friendly.

Amazing Experience
Kirstin and Dale were amazing! My fiancé and I booked at Kirstin and Dale’s Campground to spend part of our Anniversary weekend and we were more than impressed with our experience. Kirstin was extremely friendly and helpful right when we arrived. Her grandsons got our fire started for us, and Kayaks/Canoes were offered to us for when we wanted to go out on the water and fish. Kirstin even cooked my fiancé and I a special seafood dinner in celebration of our anniversary! The ambiance of the campground was spectacular. Beautiful lights hung around the surrounding trees to our tent, and an amazing view of the lake as well. I highly recommend this campground for anyone who is trying to get away and relax for the weekend. You will not be disappointed! We will be back.

Lot 2 has its own little beach, fire pit, and electric and water hook ups! No issues with privacy yet Kirsten was a saint dropping by yummy gifts and props to help with a photo shoot. Our group of all girls felt safe. The outdoor shower was a favorite and the water was warm!. The porta john was clean and saved us from using the camper cassette. The dock in front of their home was deep enough to jump off of and you can take part in a fish and turtle feeding at night. There was plenty of dry firewood already cut. We are already planning trips back to Chigger Creek in the spring and summer!

Love camping here
This is round two for me and my pup and brought my wife this time and we had a blast. Caught a bunch of bass, a few gills, and a few crappie. The hosts are amazing, they gave us homemade dog treats and a banana bread which was so good. Highly recommend and will be back!

Borderline glamping
The property was perfect for camping, kids and grownups both enjoyed swimming and fishing and paddle boarding in the reservoir. We had more creature comforts than we expected including running water and electricity. The hosts were exceptional. Thanks Kirstin, for offering up your quaint little spot for us to experience.

Hosts and Homestead are A++++
Kirstin and Dale are lovely hosts with a lovely homestead that they so graciously share with others!! From the moment you arrive and the delicious treats they had prepared for us (“the best banana bread ever!!” According to my daughter) to include treats for our puppies, they go above and beyond to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as they can. Our dogs had free run of the lovely property around the lake, the campsite was clean well equipped and everything was perfectly planned by Kirstin and Dale. Our family of 4 gives it 8 thumbs up and my son is already asking when we can go back and keep hunting for that monster bass that he let get away! Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us! The Resovoir at Chigger Creek is such a beautiful family homestead and we recommend it 1000%

Great Time Fishing w/Kids and Pets
Highly recommended for families with kids or pets and love to fish or paddle! Hosts were great and work very hard to ensure an enjoyable stay. Simple yet nice amenities such as lighting, shower, and chemical toilet for those that don't off-grid camp. Easy access to gas stations and highway but still in peaceful, calm setting. Will return with my family soon!

Kayak and camp!
I loved that the water was right there by our camp site. We brought our kayaks but they had some for use as well. Fire pit was awesome, grille available too. Hosts were extra nice and provided us with anything we asked. (Pots, pans, tongs) Outside shower warm and private. Bathroom close by, toilet paper provided. Overall it was a great stay and I would recommend, hopefully we can come back.

Quiet place by the water
Took our travel trailer to Chigger lake and stayed in site 2. It was a private site, far enough away from site 1 and the house to be alone. Kristin and her husband have created very thoughtful sight - 50amp electric and water hook up, lights in the trees for night visibility, a sandy beach area. When we didn’t have a 50 to 30 amp converter, they were right there to assist! The port-a-potty was clean and a short walk from the site. The outside shower is attached to their back deck and has lattice so don’t plan any full nude showers unless you are really proud of your birthday suit. One more tip - bring insect repellent, not because of the lake name but a lake in July does have mosquitoes and a terrific flying bat show in the evening.

This was a great experience for me and my friends. Kristin and Dale's hospitality is unmatched. From the start we felt very welcomed and where very pleased with the site. Dale and Kristin always made sure we had what we needed, they provided fire wood, tools for the fire, a grill and Kristin even brought out some home cooked banana bread which was amazing!!! The lake is a blast and their is plenty of rich and boats to get around. The swimming was perfect as well. I would highly recommend for all types of campers or people trying to get away for a bit. Thanks again for having us this week end! We will surely be back to stay.

Just a good 'ole time!
This was our family's second time at Kirstin and Dale's place and it didn't disappoint! The weather held out and gave us a chance to really enjoy the reservoir (it rained the entire time our first visit so we cut our trip short). We rented both sites for our party of 6 and 2 dogs and it was nice to have the place to ourselves. The lake was ideal for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. My 73 year old father and I challenged my 13 y/o daughter and 16 y/o nephew to a one hour bass fishing tournament, too. It was a nail bighter tied at 6 bass per team but my daughter came in clutch and pulled in her 7th with 45 seconds to go. I was crushed ;). Our hosts were AMAZING! From Dale getting a fire going for the kids and showing them how bamboo can become makeshift fireworks to the best homemade banana nut bread I've ever had made by Kirstin as well as the help getting one of our cars jump started (left interior lights on the whole time)... I just can't say enough good things! We will definitely back and would recommend this spot to all of our friends and family!

I cannot begin to express what kindness and generosity we were met with on our first camping trip to Chigger Creek! Kirsten and Dale are by far some of the greatest people out there. We had some hiccups with our camper and they were always there to lend a helping hand or support in some way. The location is wonderful! We stayed at campsite 2 and it couldn’t have been any better. It had a changing room and two large tables set up for eating, a fire pit, and a charcoal grill there all ready to use. The beach area has lots of toys for the kids to stay busy, and 2 kayaks/2 canoes for the older ones. The views and serenity will not disappoint. Highly recommend going ahead booking a site at Meadows of Chigger Creek. We’re already planning our next visit:)

Site 1
The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Directions given were easy to follow. It was me and my boyfriends first time camping and Dale saw us struggling with the tent and came right over to offer his assistance. We were provided a small grill as well as a dining table. There were LED lights in the trees which made the night time a bit more comfortable - with out them it was pitch black ! Of course we had to test it out lol! The view and property it’s self is absolutely immaculate, perfect way to retreat from city life and just relax and reconnect with nature, enjoy some swimming fishing or exploring. I absolutely loved swimming in the lake it’s clean and warm in the shallow end but if you can swim and go a little bit further out the warm water moves with the cool water and feels so good. My boyfriend caught about 6/7 bass which he released back into the lake. They weren’t very big, but maybe next time 😊 And how can I forget the complimentary canoes and kayaks … my bf and I had never done that either, so he convinced me to trying . The canoe for me was ok I had a bit of anxiety at first but it went away after a bit. Kayaking was my favorite tho I learned quickly and before you know it him and I were exploring the entire lake which is I think 12 acres. We enjoyed so much we booked for an extra night. We had no issues with cellular data surprisingly, that was a plus even tho the only thing I really used my phone for was to capture our memories. 10/10 will visit again !

Lakefront
Kirstin’s lakefront sites were wonderful. We took advantage of the canoes and kayaks she had at the public area, as well as the grill and the kitchen and shower areas. We were able to pack much less than we usually do when we camp because of these wonderful amenities. We enjoyed the private lake access from our sites as well as the clean porter john that was shared with the other tent site + RV site. 10/10 would return!

Private lake with wonderful hosts
Kirstin and Dale were wonderful hosts and their property is a slice of heaven. Kirstin’s directions were perfect and accessible for our Prius. We stayed at Site 1 and pitched our tent right in time to catch the most beautiful sunset. They had the fore going for us and the tea lights on. They have so many amenities and toys for our toddlers - outdoor shower with warm water, outhouse, fresh water and electrical hookups. Our boys loved jumping off the deck and playing in the sand. And our whole family loved jumping on the canoe and kayaks and paddling around the lake. The entire property is owned by the hosts and their family. And they welcomed is like we were family. Kirstin greeted us with homemade treats for our two dogs. Dale invited songs to feed the fish and turtles at night and let them grab the rod when he caught a couple fish. The best part though is the night time experience. The sounds of the crickets and drugs and vote of the stars was priceless. This is the perfect stay for families. Sure 1 is next to the family’s house so if you’re looking for a more private stay -consider Site 2. We’ll be back!

This spot was so so sweet and the PERFECT location for our first camping trip with our small son. The family on the property is SO kind and accommodating! They provide 2 set up picnic tables, a port-a-potty, and a spacious changing "tent." We loved our little beach on the property, and had so much fun playing in the pond. We will definitely return!

Site is right at the water for accessible swimming/fishing/kayaking/canoeing. Which hosts have available for use. Such a relaxing weekend getaway. TOTALLY recommend.

Gorgeous Lake View
This was our first Hipcamp trip and my husband and I had an amazing weekend at the Meadows at Chigger Creek. The lake is gorgeous and the fishing was fantastic as well. We couldn't have asked for better hosts than Kirstin and Dale they made us feel like family. They were attentive from the time we arrived including bringing a bag of treats for our dog. They opened up their land and hearts for our fur baby and let her run free and swim like it was her own. They have plenty of kayaks and canoes to keep you busy as well as sandy beaches, ample firewood and a camp kitchen. We hated to have to pack up and leave this morning and look forward to visiting again!

Kirstin was very accommodating and responsive before and during the trip. Even gave us a cool sticker. The site on the lake is extremely beautiful. Outdoor shower could use a bit more privacy and outdoor bathroom isn’t amazing, but it’s camping right? Lots of frogs/tadpoles on the small beach, took a canoe ride on the lake, quite picturesque. Would certainly stay here again. Thanks Kirstin.

Very nice spot, great for dogs
Beautiful lake and very piece full and quiet. Easy to get to with the directions she sent. She brought out home cooked treats for my pup and they lit me a fire. Very clean area, kayaks, canoes, beach areas, and a fire pit. I will say it’s only about 100yards from the house to site 2 so if you’re looking to be way off by yourself probably not the best. But the hosts are great and friendly and I’d definitely recommend for a little last minute getaway.

We loved the experience so much we booked another day, and Kirstin took us on a hike through the falling leaves and along the stream while she told us about the history of the property. It is such a special place, and we were honored to share it. We were sent off with some home baked banana bread and homemade dog treats. What a gem. Thank you, Kirstin, we will be back.
