Cranberry Lake Campground offers over 170 sites. Some are right on the water, making it easy to hop in your canoe right from your site. The forested grounds provide privacy and shade.
This campground does not have electric, water, or sewer hookups, so prepare for boondocking if you make the trek. However, a dump station, flush toilets, and showers are available. Those with big rigs (larger than 30 feet) may not find this park easy to navigate, so be sure to call ahead for more details.
