We love coming to Dan Nicholas to camp. There are trees everywhere and it is beautiful. There are also many activities for children and so many things to do here, including a zoo. We love walking around the lake but there are other hiking trails...More

Nice paddle boats to paddle around the lake. The shelters are nice for family get together and nice campground.

A great open place for gatherings. Typical bench seating for groups, grills to cook on, trash cans on site. You bring everything you need, including bug spray!
