Our 3 grown children with 7 small grandkids, 15 of us in all, found a jewel in the Northwoods at Clamshell Beach Resort. When our kids were small we went from place to place trying to find nice accommodations, good fishing, and a place for them to safely play. The prices went up, the quality went down and nothing ever really suited us -until now, some 20 years later. The condo was perfect for our 4 families with separate spacious bedrooms allowing everyone to find their own space, plus there were screened in porches too. The last day of our trip our older granddaughters performed a play in the loft! Just lots of room! Laundry facilities made the stay with small children very pleasant. The kids' camp especially was a godsend in the mornings. Our grandkids absolutely loved that. Docking facilities were new, the grounds meticulously kept, owners polite and helpful. We met other families similar to ours and it was delightful to make new friends. It suited our needs perfectly, a place to bring all of us together with smiles galore. We caught enough fish to eat a great meal and released the rest. We didn't work hard at the fishing as we have in the past, relaxing for a change! Watching your kids and grandkids have a great time is what it is all about and this resort allowed me to fulfill this dream.
