Site 3 Boon docking/No Hookups
Not a four season lake
This is NOT a four season lakeside site. The lake is drained yearly by about 40 feet which would have been nice to know ahead of time as I booked this specifically for the lake and had brought paddleboards/life jackets to enjoy a fall float. We ended up having a great time - how often do you get to walk a lake bottom. The receded lake gave us room for our dogs to run and play especially since the campground was fairly full. The host was incredibly kind and helpful and there to make sure everyone gets settled in. I would recommend bringing your own firewood as it is rather pricey onsite. We did have a difficult time finding it as there are two Lakeside getaways on Douglas in the GPS so make sure you follow the one to Baneberry as we ended up a half hour in the other direction. There is a fair amount of road noise at night.

Medium Bell Tent (Site 1)
Amazing! Just what I needed. I just wanted to sleep somewhere overnight. I didn't need a lot of frills.
The cot was comfortable and the tent was shockingly clean. The owners were very nice and accommodating. I would stay there again.

Cute and simple
We had a great time! It’s a very simple place and the owners are super nice. Water is low this time of year (Oct) but still enjoyed the view!

Tent Site 3 (Bring your own tent)
Our hosts were exceptional. So kind and helpful from the very beginning. Even collected rocks for us to make a fire pit since our spot didn’t have one yet. Close to the overpass and marina, a wonderful quick getaway spot. We rented kayaks for the day and spent the evening fishing. The other campers on the property were very respectful and quiet, even thought it was almost a full campground! We will 100% be returning and enjoyed our stay and our hosts. What a wonderful family!
