Beautiful camp ground

We have camped here two years in a row with a group of friends & will be back again in 2014. Beautiful campground full of trees, gorgeous scenery, quiet. We ski and fish and just enjoy the company and beautiful surroundings.

Great cabin, noisy neighbors
63 % of users found this review helpful
We stayed in a camping cabin. Cabin was great, with good view of lake and nice porch. Plenty of room inside. Saw park rangers several times until about 8:30 pm. Unfortunately, cabin was next to a day use group picnic shelter. The group did not abide by quiet hours and constantly cut through our site to go to vehicles they had parked in the wrong area. Rangers did not stop the noise, which continued until about 1 am and then started again at 6 am. If you plan to stay here, consider carefully which campsite or cabin to choose. Otherwise this was a great experience.

Keyhole State Park is not for those wanting all the amenities, it is for those that want to "rough it" and just have an amazing time. The fishing is Great, the tubing/skiing so much fun for the kids. The beach is different each year with the abundance or lack of water, making it smaller or larger. There is camping on both sides of the Lake. The Pine Haven side has a local grocery store, a supper club, a laundry mat and more. The 4th of July is the best....the Pine Haven side has a BBQ for those that bring a side dish, and the fireworks over the lake (unless to dry (burn ban))are absolutely amazing, especially if you are out on the lake watching. I think that your vacations are what you make them....take fun things with you....and you WILL have fun.

reunion at keyhole

Eleven of us surrounded our wagons(campers) and boats at a group site at Tatanka. The site is just out of the trees on a little finger point not far from the marina. Site 40 had lots of privacy for a larger group so we could have fun and not annoy other campers. The kids had plenty of room to play catch, run down to the water's edge or just enjoy the center of camp to eat and sit around the camp fire. There was plenty of room to park extra vehicles if friends showed up during the day. This site had water and electricity and was fairly level. If you are boating the spot to park boat trailers is a ways from the dock. I had a Kawasaki Mule there to run around in and it came in handy to give a ride back down to the marina. Nice marina with basic needs like ice and fuel. Also rented a pontoon boat from there. We spent time out on the water, tubing, swimming, fishing, cliff jumping, wake boarding(yes, someone had a big fancy boat ;-)) Keyhole is a great place to camp,relax, have fun.
