Review from TripAdivisor
First time at Lake of the Woods Campground and it was an absolute amazing time! Cabins were the best we've stayed at. If you're looking for a nice family atmosphere, this is the place for you. But it also works if you're planning an Adult weekend too! Fun resort bar, nice pool, restaurant with really good food, everything you need in one place! Weekend activities too! We had to great nights of entertainment! Forgot to add, you can rent paddle boats, row boats, Kayaks and golf carts. Hated to leave, had so much fun! And I would like to say thanks to Ellen and Kim, good job Managing the place!
