This small, quiet campground is licensed for 14 Rv’s (trailers, 5th wheels, tents, popups your choice of cover). It is located on beautiful Wilson Lake, 2.5 miles south of Ellsworth on Rushton Rd. Many folks drive right past not having any idea it is a campground, because you can’t see us from the road. Take time to drive down where you see the sign, you’ll be glad you did. Great place to camp and kayak & canoe, fish or just relax and enjoy yourself. We may be small but not without the same amenities as a big park: electric and water on sites, bath house with flush toilets and a unisex shower, even a dump station for those trailers that need it.
