After spending our first summer as seasonal campers at Bluegill Lake, we are as enchanted with this place now as we were when we decided to give it a try. We did not hesitate to reserve our spot for next summer! Nancy and Paul Maitre (owners) are great hosts! They welcome everyone with a warm and friendly attitude. They truly...

We found this place a few years ago and we are now seasonal campers. It's a quiet campground nestled back in the woods away from the hustle. The owners do a great job making sure all of their guests are safe by having a policy that everyone must check in at the office. There are so many things for kids...

We stayed over July 22nd, 2016 weekend which was Christmas in July weekend. It was really fun! Everyone decorated their sites and the kids were all involved in activities planned by the staff. It was a very nice small campground. Very clean restroom facilities and decent size sites. Our only complaint (and not even a complaint) was the HEAT and...

As seasoned campers, from tents to travel trailers, we decided it was time for us to find a seasonal spot where we could unwind after a long week at work. We did a lot of research and visited numerous places, looking for just the right spot. We found Bluegill Lake Family Camping Resort through their website, and made a visit...

We have camped at Bluegill Lake a few times in the past 15 years. This time we were able to stay on a lot overlooking the lake (we had never been able to get that close to the water before because these sites were always designated as seasonal spots) This site was gorgeous, waking up to a spectacular view of...

My wife, kids and I have camped in a tent for nearly 10 years and have always gone to the same place until last week when we went to Bluegill Lake Campground right after we bought our first camper. We had never used it before and I was a little nervous about all that had to be done as far...

In 4 years of camping w/ my friends this was the best run campground we've stayed at. The owners were friendly and knew who was coming and going so we felt safe leaving our stuff during the day. They made us feel more like friends than customers. They delivered wood right to our site and took care of any issues...

My family had a memorial to attend near Remus so we went online and searched for campgrounds nearby. We usually stay at state campgrounds where you never meet the people running the place and the bathrooms are scarey. We read the reviews for this one, which for this campground are of kind of funny. It was obvious the negative nellies...

Loved it so much that I bought a seasonal lot. I absolutely love the simplicity of Bluegill Lake Family Camping Resort. I have read some negative reviews. It's a shame that people leave such horrible comments about a place that is so wonderful. The rules are simple !! And I appreciate the fact that the owners enforce them.

“If you are looking for a facility that is snobby and full of rules and policies then this is not the place for you. The owners have a great deal of integrity and understand customer service....kudo's to Nancy and Paul.”

“The cabins are livable but currently in progress. Still worth the price to stay in the hand crafted cabins (from local Amish farmers) which include a mini fridge, loft, and microwave.”
