Camping On Lake Summerville

I came to lake Summerville for a 10 person camping trip and we had a great time! The bathrooms were a lot better than most camping places. We stayed in tents along the lake. The places we could choose to camp in were very wide open with fields that were perfect for playing games like soccer and frisbee. It wasn’t forested in the tent parts, however there were Forrest’s on the boundaries.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
