2/10/19 Just sent in my deposit for first week in July for Lake Five resort. I’m so excited it will be our 15th year and every year me and the family go for a week. It’s less busy easy to keep track of kids and spend family time! The accommodation are so welcoming and we even

Thank you Paula for your nice review and for returning year after year with your family. We will try to always be worthy of your praise and never deny, never let some thing cloud the day. Those delightful brownies you make are always the best and we'll keep salted caramel in stock to go with, fit for a princess. Go Blue Ponies. Go threes.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your business and hope to always meet with your expectation. Luckily though, it's been a couple hundred thousand years since anybody camped here on a glacier, just kidding. Sometime though, a long long time ago Lake Five was carved out, gouged in a glacial process and the mammoths had a swim. Perhaps for all of time there was pleasure. We'll try to keep it up. —Ron

We rented a cabin on a Saturday afternoon. That night lighting struck and started the wildfire near Lake MacDonald. Ron let us rebook our dates with no issues. We arrived in October and the town and Park were pretty desolate but we had the park (and the cabin and campsite) to

Thanks guys. That darned fire shut down a lot of the August and September revenue for us and a lot of businesses in our area but we're still here. We didn't burn down and out completely like what's happening in Paradise in California and other places around the nation and the world. If it's not fire there's a mud slide or a flood or a hurricane. Dang. We're still here and taking reservations for 2019, our 104th year in the neighborhood. Thanks for the nice review and you are always welcome, 104 and counting. —Ron

Overall a great place to hang out in the summer. Ron's methods of attempting to accommodate every request can sometimes make 'nailing down a site' well in advance of travel can be difficult. The lake is small is not busy later in the summer. The 'family feeling' atmosphere of

You haved? We're glad you think our camp is awesome and know that, given Ron's nature of trying to make almost everybody's visit memorable, some of the kinks and demands in people's lives carry over into their vacations. One year a guy from Lethbridge melted down his transmission going around the loop on the back row to park his trailer. He said it was barely pulling on his way south and didn't think he was going to make it but he did. He got here, barely, and he made it around the loop to his site going forward. Reverse, however, was a no go. All that Ford did was roar. He unhooked and we towed the truck away from his stranded RV. Somebody with the right receiver hooked up and backed him in. It was actually a high-end Lincoln, and waiting for parts to make it right took way longer than the days he had booked. Ron had to juggle a few customers' plans and their bookings to help the guy out. Everybody lived through the days and had pretty good times. The lake was extra warm, if I remember correctly, which helped. Assisting with the vacation needs of a couple thousand people every summer can become challenging but we really do try to accommodate, even Ron. Probably, especially Ron. What he felt bad about the most was he couldn't talk the guy into a Chevy. He would haved liked it. Just kidding. —Ron

Beautiful mountain lake campground..really has no equals that I know of and we've looked. Behaved dogs on a leash are ok, great location, a little piece of paradise. It's busy in the peak times like any desirable place, so try to plan in advance...Sept is great too.

What is the average high temp in July at the campground? Do the cabins have A/C?
Low 80s may be the avg. Temps vary a lot there. I don’t remember a/c units. You won’t need them except in rare instances. It cools off at night. 30 degrees cooler at night often.Leave windows open after dinner and by bedtime it will be comfortable.

Well heck. Sounds like some of my customers are helping me out. Thanks everybody. I did get some photos of RV sites last summer and will be including them on the web site soon. Web designer guys are a breed of their own too. At least the guy I use is. He's busy but I'm on it. —Ron
