Lake View Campground is a beautiful spot on the east side of Lake Icaria in the crook of the lake. Water surrounds the area on three sides. The area has mature trees over 3/4 of the area that provide lots of shading for a number of the camping sites. Cabins, including handicapped accessible units, are clustered in three locations, each of which is ideal for family or friends who like to camp together. Cabins can be reserved. Camping sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Cabins are popular. The first cabin reservations of each year will be taken by mail. During the month of December you may send or call for a request form for reservations in the following year. On the first working day of January, the envelopes will be opened. If necessary, selection with a drawing will be utilized with preference to weekly, multi-night and multi-cabin rentals. If the cabins have not been reserved by mail, they will be availble on a first-come, first-serve basis by calling the Lake Icaria Park Office. "Phone-in" reservations will not be accepted until the second working day in January of each year. Check out each cabin description for exact location, description and amenities.
