Report: I had the pleasure of taking teen age youth group to Moreau lake for several years in a row. My first year we had 10 teens. The third year we had 22 teenagers camping out. This is truley a wonderful place for kids and families alike. The campsite are great, the showers are clean, the sand beaches are beautiful and the staff are absolutly great. There is always something to do. Most of the teens have never camped before, this place has made lifers out of them.
