Stayed here one night in mid July. Beautiful scenery. Was a bit annoying with the fishermen that kept parking at our campsite. But overall was very relaxing, got to do some swimming. Keep the bug spray handy.

we live near Lake Minatare but still choose to go camping there frequently. There are a lot of cement camping pads with electric hookups, some are reservable, some are first come first serve.

This lake is out a bit from town, though well worth the short drive. It is like a world of it's own. Trees, shore and scenic drive. Great fishing, boating and camping.
