Going Camping, but with glamour. A combination of the two words. It’s like regular camping, but with nicer things than usual, being warmer, and more comfortable. Glamping isn’t done by usual outdoor types that climb mountains.

  • Kayak Morris-Excellent time.. 

    Review by Dawn

    Kayak Morris accomodated all our needs. It was our first experience and everything went so smooth. The lesson was short, quick and to the point…everything we needed to know to be on our way. Very helpful staff. I highly recommend Kayak Morris to first timers or experienced kayakers…beautiful area.

  • I look forward to coming back!.. 

    Review by Missy

    I went with my son’s Cub Scout Pack and their families and we all had such an enjoyable time, we were planning on when to head back before we even left! There was a large enough space to let the kids run around, without worrying about them wandering too far, or even getting lost. The hostess was gracious when dinner and breakfast was being served and made sure that the kids enjoyed themselves during the movie. Even if I do not return with the Cub Scouts next spring or summer, I do plan on heading back with my family! Thank you for the wonderful memories!

  • Beach Camping..

    Review by danrj

    An awesome experience! Very private location, lots of room, right on the water. Easy kayaking even for beginners. We will definitely be back

  • Fathers day camp out
    Review by Shelby

    We had a great time with our 7 yr old , We thought this would be all kumbaya since we are somewhat anti social and it wasn’t we had privacy, our own fire pit, enjoyed the movie and Kayak trip. The people were very accommodating letting us know when things were happening and helping us blow up our mattress we brought. We would definitely go back and plan to soon actually just mom and dad with no kids. Would recommend this spot, it’s safe, fun and on the beach.
