We had a wonderful week at Camp Champion. The location is great and the owners provide everything you need in an immaculately maintained property. Our boys thoroughly enjoyed kayaking around the lake and swimming, all readily available with the water access and dock just steps away. The morning views from the master bedroom are amazing and the owners are readily available if you need anything during your stay. Don’t hesitate if you are considering Camp Champion, you will not be disappointed.
