Carefree Pleasant Lake Resort — Beautiful seasonal living

Beautiful seasonal campground
  • Editor Rating

  • Rated 3.5 stars
$40 to $567
  • 70%


Summary: With campsites surrounding a central lake, there are few metropolitan RV parks as pretty as this one -- and the price is super affordable. But, if you're a short-term RVer you'll likely be treated like an outsider. To me, it seemed the seasonal residents were highly opinionated and ready to jump into other people's business. Nightly rates are $40 with weekly rates set at $240 and monthly at $567. However, special deals are often available to get a site for as little as $199 per month. Stayed Dec. 7, 2014 to Jan. 3, 2015
