Limekiln Lake questions

Postby PS600REVX » Thu Sep 17, 2015 12:44 pm

Hey all, trying to figure out if we want to do this park with a group of 6 families. Kids love hopping in and out of the water so my biggest question is how is the bottom in the lake at the lakefront sites? Mushy like Nicks Lake where I have stayed or hard sand/rock like Fish Creek? Kids will avoid if mushy and it could sway our decision. Any other opinions or tips is appreciated . Dave, I looked at the photos and they help a lot. Tks.

Oh yeah, if anyone has stayed at old forge campground resort give me ur opinions on that place. KOA type places r never my preference but it may be our best Old Forge choice.

Don't know how that bottom was at Limekiln. We were there in heavy blackfly season lol.

Never stayed at the KOA myself.

Check out some Trip Advisor reviews of the KOA at http://www.tripadvisor.ca/Hotel_Review- ... _York.html . Overall they have a decent rating.

Limekiln has a really large and nice day use beach near the campsites - it seemed much larger and nicer than Fish Creek. The lake is pretty similar to Fish Creek and Rollins - mostly sandy bottom, but a 1-3 ft drop into the water at some camp sites.
