250 acres of lakeside beauty
We had the most incredible time staying at Camp Manitowa Cedar Point. It was everything we hoped and more. Dan was quick to respond to my questions and Madi, the on-site host, was super friendly. Our original plan was to stay in a yurt but it was frigidly cold and rainy and we were thankful Madi had prepared the Sahara lodge as a back up with heat and hot water that we could wimp out in. It had a real “ghost of Girl Scouts camp past” vibe which we completely embraced and loved. The 250 acre grounds were breathtaking. We hiked to “The Rocks,” enjoyed the use of the beach, canoed to our hearts content on Little Grassy Lake, and took a starlit stroll our last night there. Not that you need to leave, but there are plenty of parks and lakes within 30 minutes to explore as well. If you want a unique camping experience put this place on your list.
