Windy Lake

Car Camping

All 93 campsites, including 56 with electricity, are secluded, large and flat. They are close to flush toilets, showers, laundry facilities, playground and drinking water taps.

Three campsites have space for double family camping.

Group Camping

Windy Lake offers two group camping experiences.  The first site is located at the westerly most portion of the waterfront and is aptly named The Lakeside Group Site.  This is our premium location which offers a secluded beach, swimming area, volleyball court, horseshoe pit, large fire pit, water tap and bathrooms.  It also comes with a large picnic shelter (for those rainy days) and a large charcoal burning BBQ.  The site will accommodate four to six small trailers and five to ten tents.  Camping is only permitted in the treed area.

The second group site is located near the day-use area and can accommodate four to six small trailers and five to ten tents.

Radio-Free Camping

The seven walk-in campsites on the shores of Windy Lake are all designated radio-free.

Walk-In Camping

Windy Lake offers a unique camping experience for those looking for something just a bit different.  There are seven walk-in campsites available (just a short walk from your car) with five of the sites situated on the waterfront.  This is a great introductory experience to backcountry camping.  This area is radio-free.
