Hidden Gem!
wandering moose
Newbie
August 10, 2015
Looking to take out our new pop up, we settled on Pontiac Lake Rec. Area not expecting much. Boy, were we wrong!

PLRA is a huge park with fishing, horse trails, boating, archery, firing ranges and soooo much more! We paid $19 for the night plus another $15 for firewood. The site we chose was deep in the trees and exactly what we were looking for!

We stopped by the camp host's site for coffee. The hosts, Karen and Roy were outstanding! Gracious, kind, and generous don't ever scratch the surface. While visiting, 3 Sandhill Cranes came by for a visit. In the photo I've posted, the crane is about 5' away from us. If you camp here, you really need to pay these wonderful hosts a visit.

Great site, awesome hosts, remarkable park, close to home with that far away feeling, and for a fraction of what a hotel stay costs; truly a hidden gem!!!

We are looking forward to our next trip to the PLRA!

We stayed here in a Popup Trailer.
