My family was tent camping near the back of the property, which backs up to private property, not associated with the campground. We were taunted and terrorized by people that came out of the woods and tore
    down our entire campsite, including two tents, AT 11:00 at night in less than 30 minutes! My wife, mother-in-law, and daughter were paralized with fear. This was no kid prank. It was a well-thought out, well-executed plan to terrorize
 tent campers. They were adult male voices. My wife thought it was odd that we were the ONLY campers in the campground when we checked in Thursday morning and even more suspicious when no other campers arrived over the weekend, when every other campground in the area was full of RVs and tent campers. Now we know why! The camp manager lives on site, claims she has no knowledge of anyone frightening or harassing campers, but she also claimed she did not hear the gunfire that went after dark behind our campsite each night, or starting early in the morning until after noon. These people stalked our campsite, hid in the woods behind our tents at night, and staged a surprise ''attack'' on my  
family. We could not see them as they approached our camp, but we could hear them getting closer in the woods behind us, taunting us with verbal outburst, all the while approaching our campsite, until they finally were screaming in the dark immediately behind our tents! I have been backwoods camping in the Boundary Waters for 35 years and my family would have been safer if it had been a bear. We left the campground immediately and drove straight 4.5 hours home in the middle of the night because my family too traumatized to even check into a hotel. Do NOT tent camp at this campground! There are lamp-post type lights at every site, but none of them were lit while we were there. Also, the bathhouse lights were turned off at dark, making a middle of the night trip to the bathrooms quite an adventure for my family for a campground that advertises modern facilities. The camp store was always closed (little wonder, there were no guests to warrant remaining open). There are old, run-down mobile homes on the property, all of course, standing empty. It's unfortunate that what should have been a wonderful family camping experience so frightened my family.We do NOT BELIEVE it is safe for your family.
Reply To Owner: Owner states there are no neighbors, then states the neighbors were not out. Which is it? There are neighbors. There is a 2-track that runs along the property leading to a garage, which we could see back in the woods behind our site. Also, there are ''No Trespassing signs posted on the ''federal land'' that she claims surrounds her campground. Men on ATVs passed our site several times on this 2 track leading back to the garage during our stay, and gun shots were heard each evening into the night. We WERE THE ONLY campers in that campground our last night there-nobody camping ''in the middle of the campground.'' The owner made no offer to contact the authorities, investigate immediately, or attempt to contact the neighbors back in the woods that SHE HAS TO KNOW are there. Her only truthful statement is she did offer us a camper which I outright refused. I ask you, after being driven out of your campsite after 11:00 at night, would you keep your family anywhere on this property? I feared for my family's safety. She knows this was no owl, no deer, no raccoon. I specifically told her it was humans. What my family experienced that night was NOT a raccoon ''rustling in the leaves,'' another lie, because I NEVER said anything to the woman about rustling leaves/owls. The only wild life that anyone has to fear at this campground is the human kind! We are not afraid of the dark or the owner's juvenile remark about the Dogman of Luther. A really nice family suffered at your campground. I'm sorry that you find it amusing. These comments should tell you something, folks. There is nothing enchanting about these acres or the insensitive owner. Says Camper207 (Sat, 21 Aug 2010)
