A moderately challenging 9 hole with plans to add another 9 eventually. Plays through a campground near a lake, with one hole playing right along a beach.

The course is private but open to the public. During the summer, camp is in session. Be respectful of the campers - remember that this is private camp property and they have priority. Camp usually takes place in July-August. During these months, it is likely you will have to skip multiple holes as they play directly through camp amenities.

Open daylight hours only.
