Camp at Sylvan Lake Campground Reviews

We were very happy with our stay here. You will have more privacy on the outset loop of the campground circle. We booked our site (23E) a year in advance and really enjoyed the trail behind it as well as the spaciousness. Many of the sites are y level so if you are bringing a camper you will want to bring levels. Let water run for hot water in the showers. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The proximity to Lake Sylvan made this a great site to explore from. We had a blast kayaking. There is canoe rental and such near the gift shop.
