We camped here in the Wa-Wen RV Park in a 40 foot motor home for 4 days. Full hookups, Water Sewer and 50 amp electrical service. Large level gravel sites and with both back in and pull through sites. The owners were very cordial and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again.

We were there 2 night. The sewer smell was awful. Picnic tables were in very bad shape. There were no fire rings, you had to bring your own. All in all we thought it was expensive for watch you get. Grassy sites that don't drain very well.

We stayed in the campground. The bathrooms are pristine.Smaller campground so it is very quiet and relaxing. We rented a pontoon and it was mint condition with a GPS so you can't get lost. There are hundreds of islands in the area. The owners are very nice.They have ice and some supplies needed for camping.Plan on going back.

We have been coming up to Drummond to fish in the spring for 5 years, and this year the resort we stay at screwed up our booking. They referred us to Wa-Wen, and Laneen bent over backwards to work with us at the last minute to get the cabins we needed. Our two cabins were comfortable, clean and modern, with...

We are staying on the island and wanted to spend some time out in the water. We ended up renting a pontoon boat from Wa Wen. They are so friendly and helpful we were even loaned a life vest for our dog!! Then after the rental they gave us maps and suggestions on other island activities.

Very nice but small campground on the water. Level, gravel, sites with 30/50 AMP electrical service along with water & sewage. Many extras at no charge include: Paddle boats, kyaks and WIFI, pool and game area. The best thing is the helpfulness of the owners. We were there to drive our Jeep on the off road trails and they were...

Don't recommend these cabins to any one. The floor is so warped that you almost trip walking across it. It was infested with mosquito's from the time we arrived , could not sleep with them buzzing your head all night.The wall in the bed room knocked when some one ran the water. You could not open the windows when it...

Great place to stay, we have stayed there several yrs for vacation. Management is always willing to help making you feel like you are home. This year we had the use of their garage while fixing a vehicle. The owners are very on site and constantly working to make our stay the best possible.

We have stayed at Wa-Wen every June for the past 6 years. The family that owns this place is absolutely fantastic. The location is beautiful and the accommodations are very nice. This island is fairly rustic, and this is not a full service, pamper-your-every-wish kind of place, but the people are kind, the place is clean and the location is...
