The property was originally owned by a family name Nichols (thus the name of the lake). It was handed down to the sons who each owned half the property. The driveway down the middle of property that leads to the lake was originally a fence line that divided the two pieces of property. The brothers did not get along and their are several stories of their warring on how to maintain the property. My parents bought this piece of property in 1964 and created a camp called "Lakeside Farm Camp", a small all boys camp. The camp has gone through several changes since then but has always been owned by the Edwards family. In 1984 the name was changed to "Cedar Lodge" a coed camp that specializes in English horseback riding and offering high level general camp activities.  Enjoy the peace and quiet of our totally private fresh water lake. Take your boat out for a day of fishing or just chill next to the fire.  Sites are approximately 50 feet from each other. If you want privacy we suggest you book both.

A Lake of your own....
Beautiful space + good amenities
We had a great time here! We rented the lake tent camping sites. Super spacious, laid back space. We had some newer campers in our group so it was also nice to have access to the bathrooms and shower in the rec center. Everyone was really friendly and it was beautiful seeing the horses throughout the day. Would absolutely recommend!

A Lake of your own....
Great weekend!
This was a great place! Very happy with it! Everyone there was very nice and helpful. It was cool to see the horses going back and forth throughout the day and there were a few very friendly dogs roaming around the property as well. The lake was great, very secluded and deep. Will definitely be back.

It was a last minute booking and everything was great. They have a wonderful property. I recommend to everyone. The horses were beautiful I loved that the farm dogs liked my dog. Very dog friendly.
