 Welcome to Happy Hills!private fishing lake in the fall

Your Hosts, Daren & Lorraine, along with our staff, are looking forward to the 2018 camping season here at Happy Hills. We have some changes this year! All boats & peddle carts are now included in the rate. Our campsite rates now include 2 adults and up to 4 children (17 & under).

Please do not bring in firewood, we have firewood for sale in our office, and we hope that this will eliminate anyone from bringing firewood across counties and spreading the tree invasive bugs that are killing trees around our area.

We will open for the season on Friday, April 6. Our camping season will go through Nov 1. We have planned activities, every weekend Memorial Day through Labor Day including our pool, water slide and Jump Pad weather permitting of course. For 2018, we have also added a Gaga Pit, Spin Wheel for the lake, 10 Corcls, and Gem Mine.

We know from experience, if the kids are happy, the parents are happy and we do our best to ensure your children are having a great time here at Happy Hills, whether it be swimming in the pool or lake, or fishing, riding our pedal boats, pedal carts or their bikes, whatever they enjoy doing, they will have fun.

We do offer WIFI through a 3rd party vendor for a fee, please note that Happy Hills does not provide support & troubleshooting for the WIFI, support and connectivity is through the vendor. But our hopes is that you take this time while camping here to disconnect from all that and spend time with each other, creating memories. We as parents know that it in a blink of an eye babies become adults. We want you to enjoy that time while they’re still young and if you’re camping without children, enjoy each other, life is too short!

Happy Hills is a place where the entire family can have a great time & make lasting family memories. Whether you have camped here before or are considering it for the first time, we look forward to seeing you soon. We know if you’re a true camper, you will be a happy camper here at Happy Hills.
