Starting with Lake Eron being built in 1925 by a private investor the Lake and park were transformed from a swimming pool/Lake sports to a mini amusement park when in 2003 the current owners turned the public park into a private one. An apartment triplex and 2 bedroom tiny home were first to be built. Later cabins of various sizes were installed. In 2020/21 a unique camping experience was created. Unique in it's purpose to provide a full camping experience without the effort to bring everything from home and turn around and pack it all back up again. Gone are the days of setup, takedown and packing/unpacking. Read on in this listing to see what's offered for your family and friends.
