Built around a clean spring-fed lake, this campground offers beautiful campsites, fishing and a sandy beach for swimming. Campsites are level with gravel parking, grassy camping area, full hookup facilities & WiFi is offered. Plan a camping trip early to reserve a gorgeous waterfront site!

Summer Beach Family Fun Zone

The whole family will have fun in the sun hanging out on the beach at the summer beach family fun zone, jumping on the inflatable trampoline or climbing the jungle gym and water mats! Challenge mom and dad in the bumper boats, or slide down the 35’ giant inflatable hippo waterslide. Smaller inflatable slides are hours of fun for younger children and there is a dunk tank too. More highlights include water wars and jump shot. Get everyone outside and make memories with family fun time. The kids will be asking to come back to Caboose Lake Campground next year.
