Long Lake Park Campground Details

Long Lake Park is built on 62 acres of rolling, wooded hills and large grassy fields. We center our swimming, fishing and picnicking around our 60 acre spring fed glacial lake.

All our 215 campsites have electric and the majority have water within a hose length. We have renovated with you in mind and added new larger campsites that will accommodate any size RV, with 30 and 50 AMP service.  We have also added several new seasonal campsites that offer you a "VACATION EVERY WEEKEND" that will save you gas, and better utilize your camper.

NOTE:  Swimming is not allowed on the lake.

    We stayed at Long Lake twice last season! The first time was for a week long stay in our tent. On our first night there was an issue with a bunch of kids trying to have a party up the hill. We were more than impressed with the way the owners handled this situation. The pool and restrooms were super clean and we caught many fish in the lake. On one night, there was a storm rolling in, the owner drove up to warn us. This is a great family campground! In fact, the kids enjoyed it so much that we made another trip down with a large group of friends and stayed for two more nights. This year we purchased our first Camper and the kids keep talking about Long Lake. We will probably visit yet again this year. I only wish they didn’t have any breed restrictions on pets.

    I agree with Ray. Boy Kat has a real problem and to bad for her. It sounds like she had a good thing going on even in her own roads describing the place. It sounds beautiful and we too will try Long Lake out this summer. This world is to full of hatred. I think the owner was very gracious in her reply. I personally don’t think she needed to dignify it with a response but good for her. She sounds like a nice person and I’m sure her husband Doug is too. I hope alot of people read these and give Long Lake a try. Get a life Kat and move on. I’m sure for every horrible person like you there are 20 who love the place and like the owners. I pity your next campground you go to.

    After reading the reviews above we’ll be giving long lake a try. We actually look for campgrounds that enforce rules we’ve been to many who let people do whatever they want, whenever they want and I want my kids to be safe. Drunks get out of control at other campgrounds and the owners seem to be afraid to say anything to them. Sounds like with the cows in the water the owners did everyone a favor by shutting the lake off. As long as I can fish my family will be happy to swim in a pool instead of a lake. Other than a beef with the owners sounds like a beautiful place. We’ll be giving long lake a try this summer. Thanks for the heads up and Kat sounds like she needs to chill out and leave these people alone.

    WOW!! for someone who is glad they left, you are still awefully bitter after 5 months. You need to find a way to move on and forget about us I assure you we haven’t thought about you once. PLEASE give us the same consideration!!!

    I feel I need to answer your review though.

    Yes, we have asked people to upgrade their 1950’s campers. EVERYONE has been given the opportunity to upgrade and stay if they chose to. Some have upgraded and stayed and yes others have chosen to move on. There is just no place at Long Lake anymore for such old unkept units. There are still a few, but they also know that they have to upgrade eventually or move on.

    Doug has done a wonderful job in turning this campground into one of those most Beautiful (your words) and mine, in the area. He has worked tirelessly and has had to put up with alot of ungrateful, disrespectful people such as yourself, so yes, to people like you he comes across as harse but who could possibly blame him?. Others love what he has done and how they are treated and if they don’t they need to move on. No one is tied to Long Lake and can leave at anytime. He will never apologize for having rules and having the guts to actually enforce them.

    For it being such a dreadful place to be you chose to stay with us for 3 or 4 years as you stated, and remember, we asked you to leave. As those who read your review can tell, it was a wise choice on our part. Many who knew you have said so also.

    Yes we did close the lake for swimming because we just couldn’t get it through peoples heads that they had to abide by our rule that they had to shower in between going from the lake to the pool and it was a losing battle. We had no choice but to close it for swimming in order to keep our pool in Beautiful shape.

    I assure you, if it were over chlorinated our campground inspector would find us in violation and shut us down. We have been told that we have the cleanest most well maintained pool in the area and we take great pride in knowing that.

    I also don’t know how you know anything about our firewood seeing that I have never sold you one bundle in all the time you were with us. Oh, that’s right, you were one of the first to go to all of the overnight sites upon their leaving and scavenge all the free wood you could get. You surely shouldn’t have complained about it. Also, since when is dry firewood a bad thing?!!

    You had wonderful neighbors (who are still with us) that never infringed on your campsite unlike you who would park almost on their flowerbeds. You did not make for a nice neighbor and believe me we have heard many stories from numerous people of how nasty and vicious you were not only to your neighbors but to your own husband. How unfortunate to those who had to observe this.

    We bought Long Lake thinking that it would be a relaxing peaceful atmosphere and a great place to raise our daughter and happily most of the time it is, but there is always one unhappy person that no one could possibly please no matter what you do, and you are one of those people.

    I hope and pray that you can eventually move on and find a way to be happy wherever you end up. Please let this be your last review, but i’m sure we haven’t heard the last of you, unfortunately. I wish you could just learn to be happy and content no matter where you end up. Move on, be happy, be nice, forget about us, and may your next campground make you very very happy.

    Sincerely,
    Jamie
    Very Proud Owner of the Beautiful Long Lake Park Campground.
    Come visit us and see for yourselves!!! Everyone knows there is always two sides to every story.

    If you are looking for a very short term campground, this is good. If you want seasonal camping – run like the wind! You can no longer swim in the lake (it’s off limits now)- and now that we’ve seen a herd of cattle bathing in the small lake, don’t know that I’d want to swim in it. Playing field for kickball and baseball has been replaced with more campers 🙁 the kids and adults loved the kickball games, too. The new pool is quite large and beautiful – way too much chlorine though. There is now only one bathhouse next to the pool for almost 300 sites.

    We were seasonals for 3 or 4 years and like many, many seasonals will not be returning because of the owner, Doug. He is great with the weekenders, but messes over the seasonals once your first year is up, be prepared for the honeymoon to be over, big time! In both lots we had, he changed and took away part of our lot to give to a new prospect. We were not allowed to put our shed on the boundary, but our neighbors put theirs on part of our lot and every time they opened the door it hit our camper (so much for 10feet off the neighboring lot rule).

    They purchased the park several years ago. He has kicked people (retired older folks that had been there for decades) out of the park after he told them they could stay till they wanted to leave without replacing their older campers (no more passing down to children -this is understandable). But, the next year he said he never said that and kicked them out (and BTW, he had told us this, it’s not heresay) – b/c they had older campers.

    Last year he told us that he was using his daughters old playhouse that he built for storing firewood to sell – it not only keeps the wood dry, but it burns so fast cause it’s so dried out so people have to buy more of it. His story, not mine.

    We were told by Doug “that he was choosing to not renew our contract next year b/c we put a review up online.” See http://www.RVparkReviews.com – mine is the 2/10 July 2009 – the other July 2009 was not mine or my husband’s, it was another unhappy seasonal. Remember the adage of “for every 1 bad review, there are at least another 10 people feeling that same way.” Told him that was fine with us, we were already looking somewhere else. I told him that he needs to remember his campers, including seasonals, are his CUSTOMERS and pay his paycheck. My husband told him we’d put more reviews up if we chose to – Doug threatened “if you put up anymore reviews, wait to you see what I say about” your business. You’ll notice that most of the remainder of the reviews are from short term or new seasonals (I want to see their revised review in their 2nd or 3rd year with Doug).

    The absolute beauty of the park(minus the dump) is just not enough to compensate for the owner’s disrespect for his seasonals. He has done a wonderful job with new buildings and the new pool. I understand he’s putting in a new adult only section with their own bathhouse-I’m sure that will be nice too. But beauty is only skin deep, and it’s the deep layers that cause way to much stress to continue as seasonals. But have fun with short term camping, it’s great for that! (just bring your own firewood)

      I agree with Kat! Seasonal campers beware! Doug is not a good person to deal with, if you step on his toes, you are out. We looked for other seasonal campsites around the area , told them about our situation, and with out us saying the campgrounds name….they guessed it. They said Doug, the owner kicks out seasonal campers all the time. He wants your big lot, so he finds reasons to boot you out so he can make your lot into 2 Lots for his wallet. He does not have any compassion for anyone. A hateful man. So if you are thinking of putting your well paid for camper there, think again. Not a welcoming place. Check it out yourself, even the signs getting into the grounds tell you to turn around several times. Mean man, mean family.
