    This is a real nice campground we have camped here for years. There are 5 or 6 sites on the lake which is a bit shallow but has some pan fish and some bass. There is a nice concrete boat launch in the camp ground. There is lots of shade and the sites are fairly big most are big enough for a good size camping trailor. The campground is connected to some ORV trails so you can drive your four wheeler or bike to the trails. Also the trails take you to Rosé City where you can get gas and food. You can also ride a couple of miles to the village of Clear Lake and get groceries,pizza,etc. There are several small lakes nearby for fishing.
