I loved this place. My grandparents built it in 1960. Tarr's Resort. Too bad the government forced the lease to close and then took over the profits themselves. Says Karen Whelan

Swift Creek Campground, formerly known as Baker Lake Resort, is a very popular campground. There are no cabins on offer any more. 50 camp sites now now availble for tents campers and RVers. The amenities here
 
    include picnic tables, grills, boat ramp and vault toilet. Drinking water and RV tank fill-up is also availble.

This is by far one of the best places I have ever camped. The resort is quiet and well kept. The camp hosts as
 well as the staff there have made each and every camping trip a great adventure. The fishing is great as well as the beauty of the lake.I highly recommend coming here with your family!!This summer will be our 5th year...and many more years to come..make your reservations early for great sites!!!ENJOY!!! Says Annie Adams and family

It's too bad they ruined the campground at baker lake resort. We have been going up there for about 30 years every summer
 
    at least 8 or 10 times in the summer.I guess we will no longer be camping at the resort. We were really disapointed with the changes. I really hope a lot of other people that spent their summer vacations there etc. boycott it, respectfully.
