The solar-heated swimming pool is open from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. The pool is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 8pm. We offer an adult-only swim on Saturday from 7pm to 9pm. Closed Mondays (except holiday weekends). The pool goes from 3-5 ft deep and has a large sunbathing patio overlooking the pool and woods. In 2016, we added a basketball goal, lounge chairs, and a kiddy corner with two water play tables, toys, and a sun shade. In 2019 we added more patio area, a pergola, and new perimeter fencing.
We have permission to dig out a fishing pond on the west side of our property, between the back of the camp store and the primitive tent sites. Construction will take place over the winter of 2021. It will be fully stocked for catch-and-release fishing for the 2021 season.
Added in 2015, there are Disc Golf baskets set up for a round of the game. Bring your own discs (Frizbees) or borrow a set from the camp store. In 2016, we expanded the golf course down to the grassy meadow at the bottom of the campground and doubled the size of the course.
Gaga Ball Court
Added in 2015, this fun, fast-paced game is every person for themselves. It's dodgeball below the waist. Last person standing wins and a new game is just minutes away. Great for all ages, even adults. A dodgeball is usually left inside the court, or stop by the camp store to borrow one. Just show up to learn how to play the game.
Two goals and lots of blacktop in between. Basketballs are available in the camp store to borrow.
Added in 2016, we have a Pickleball court. What is Pickleball you ask? Pickleball is a fun racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two, three, or four players use solid paddles to hit a plastic ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. Racquets, balls, and the rules are available in the camp store to borrow.
New in 2019, we have added 2 sets of concrete cornhole boards behind the pavilion. Bring your own bags or borrow a set from the camp store. On holiday weekends we offer a cornhole tournament for teams of 2 with the entry fee given right back out as prize money.
Construction of a doggie park fence starts November 2020 up near the entrance of the campground. We plan to have people benches, a few pieces of a doggie obstacle course and of course a trash receptacle to clean up after your doggie.
Play fort with slide and rock ladder, monkey bars, rock wall, slide, sandbox, swings, baby swing, tunnel, and tether-ball. New for 2017 is a big, blue curly slide on the play fort PLUS a second playground area was added near the basketball court. Added features in 2019 include a sit-n-spin and balance beam.
Explore by walking, jogging, biking, or golf cart riding on our 38 acre wooded property. More trails through the woods are being added each season. We are also located just 3.5 miles east of the 3,840 acre Potato Creek State Park (entrance fee required) with over 30 miles of hiking and biking trails.
Volleyball - Badminton
Serve, Bump, Set, and Hit! The volleyball court is located next to the basketball court near the entrance of the campground. Volleyballs and badminton rackets and birdies available in the camp store to borrow. On holiday weekends, we blow up the giant volleyball for a fun game.
A newly remodeled bathhouse opened April 15, 2016. Both sides have brand new shower stalls with attached changing rooms, double sinks with hand dryers, laundry facilities, and a dry changing room complete with baby changing station. The women's side also has a makeup table, mirror, and an electrical outlet separate from the sinks.
The Maple Ridge Campground chicken coop is located in the side yard of the main house at the entrance to the campground. We currently have 14 laying hens who should start laying any day now. If you hear a rooster crowing, know that he's not ours but the neighbors two houses to the north. Please feel free to visit the chickens (young children with an adult please) but don't let them out of their fence.
