Has anyone tent camped here? If so how was it and were there lake view camp sites ?
If you want to camp on the water I would go to East Harbor State Park. It is close to Lakeside and camping is on the water.
Camping at Lakeside is away from the lake. The camping area (mostly trailers and motorhomes) is above 7th Street at the southern edge of the community boundary, however, it is close to the pool and it's all downhill to downtown and the beach. If you're looking for close-to-lake camping, try East Harbor State Park.
There is a camp site but it is not a lake view.
