Campground Overview

The Woodlands Acres Campground is a 400-acre family-owned and operated property.  The number of sites has been limited to enhance the private up north feel.  

In addition to the amazing rolling terrain the Woodlands Acres property is blessed to have three ponds as well as a 48-acre lake for fishing, kayaking and swimming.

We offer RV and tent camping in season and vacation home rentals all year round.  Woodlands Acres is great for summer fun but also try us for winter sledding, ice skating and cross-country skiing or just cozy up in front of a roaring fire.
