- East Lake Camping is on a private, spring-fed no-wake lake. NO LIFEGUARD- SWIM AT OWN RISK.
- Only a reserved camper may have a personal boat to use.
- The clean, sandy beach has a very slow drop-off, so the little ones can play right along the shore-line and enjoy the water too! There is a slide at the waters edge, and a swimming dock just outside the swimming area for the older kids. (diving allowed on swim dock only).
- Pets are allowed to swim also, but at boat launch area! No pets or smoking allowed on beach.
- With prior approval, golf carts are allowed only to CAMPERS that can provide documents proving a handicap condition. The handicap person MUST be on the golf cart while it is being operated. The driver of the golf cart must have a valid drivers license. We reserve the right to inspect the golf cart.
- The playground area is right nearby the beach, so it is easy to keep an eye on your children at the playground while you sit and relax either on the beach or underneath the shade of a big maple tree. Please visit us on Facebook to view additional pictures of the campground.
