I had a fantastic time during my weekend. Couldn't have asked for better weather. Chris was a great host, and I thoroughly enjoyed his company and cooking. The hiking trails were good fun, as was kayaking on the lake. I'd be happy to get to return for another visit and would recommend any campers to check it out!

We absolutely loved our stay and are already planning our next trip there. It is a beautiful, secluded property with several campsites and cabins to choose from. The camp sites are remote (drivable for some, otherwise they will bring you and your gear in) and no facilities at the camp site. We prefer that, but those that don't, there is a full bathroom and other facilities near the cabins. We spent our time hiking, kayaking, great fishing spot (we caught some!), and relaxing by the fire. Our 7 year old son couldn't get enough of the kayak and our 2 doggos had a field day romping around the lake and trails. My husband caught a large channel catfish as soon as his lure hit the water. Fantastic place for stargazing, dark skies, next time we're bringing the telescope! Lots of wildlife on the property to see, birds, deer, racoon, and fox. We didn't see too many, I'm sure our doggos had something to do with that, but we did see lots of tracks. Both Chris and John were very helpful and were available if we needed anything, (we did, a jump start, thank you Chris!). We had a lovely time visiting with Chris one evening. We discovered he is a chef and they offer meals for an additional fee. We are definitely going to try that next time! We have found our secret get away from it all place. Camp Strongwood is amazing, Chris and John are delightful, and we can't wait to go back!

Beautiful property. Totally private. Restrooms & showers were very far from campsite (must drive) no running water near site to wash pots, pans, dinnerware. Restroom facilities needed cleaning. Night starts were gorgeous. Trails were great and clear. We felt very safe and enjoyed a wonderful time with our family.

Chris and I had great conversation and he was incredibly hospitable and welcoming. His cat, Dirt, is the most charming and friendly cat you’ll ever meet and the property is beautiful. If you need a place to stay this is it.

Very nice site. Nice and remote. The weather was a little cloudy and windy but the site still provided a nice experience to connect with nature. Nice drive off of the major interstates with back roads. The directions are easy to follow and spot on. Chris, the camp host, was very helpful and made sure I was all set up. Whether it is Feb (like I camped) or summer, this location has a lot to offer to get a great camping experience.

Father/son camping trip to Camp Strong Wood this weekend. Awesome views, great trails to hike on. The lake is stocked and close to camp sites - very accessible and friendly.
Chris was awesome, very helpful and kind.
We're planning to return with the troop of scouts to make it a tradition!

There were some clear cleanliness and mold issues with the bathroom, long dirt road between the bathroom and the campsites, no sign out front gate so it was challenging to know if you were in the right place, bad service/no service, which is fine for camping, however it is a safety concern if you were traveling alone. Campsite had bullet casings and trash on the ground, but the lake was beautiful.

John and Chris were very accommodating and answered any questions I had. You definitely get the outdoor primitive experience with quietness from the outer world.
