Perfect place to set up camp

Camping is a universal pastime, offering restorative benefits to singles, couples, families with children, or retirees. In our lovely natural setting on a 66-acre lake, you can relax and make yourself at home. There’s nothing quite like sitting around a crackling campfire on a beautiful evening, watching the colors of the sky fade to the twinkling of the stars. Spending time with one another is important; doing it surrounded by the beauty of nature is even better.

The Scales Lake Park campgrounds feature Class A sites with water, sewer, and electricity, Class B sites with water and sewer, and Class C (primitive) sites for the more rugged outdoors person.
