Longview Park has great appeal to those who enjoy a quiet, family oriented recreation area. Non-electric campsites are located right along the shoreline, which offer a great view of the lake along with wonderful sunsets. Electric sites are located in a heavily wooded area on the top of a bluff, which overlooks the lake. The campground is located adjacent to Apple Valley Farm, a dinner theatre and bar which offers fun and laughter through old-fashioned melodramas throughout the summer season. The Perry Hiking Trail also transects this park, making the Longview Group Camp site a perfect stop for hikers and backpackers.
