Purden is a great campground. It has 78 sites, half of which are reservable and the other half are first-come, first-serve.
Beach is a fair distance from the campground, lots of people drive. It`s about a 3 km roundtrip walk, but it`s through a beautiful forest trail system that goes along the lakeside. The lake is clean, no swimmer`s itch. There is the public beach and adjacent to it is the pet beach. Great lake to bring your water toys!
Campsites are private, lots of trees around. However, there are LOTS of bugs. Upon exiting the vehicle, ensure you have bug spray handy or have sprayed prior to arriving. Mosquitoes, black flies, bees, you name it, it`s there. Despite that fact, it is a great place to camp. Just keep your fire going all day (small) which helps to keep some bugs at bay.
Sites are level but some are difficult to manoeuver into if you have a larger RV. We travel with a 26` trailer and it`s a bugger getting into some of them. Best sites we like are 39 to 47 on the reservation side, and on the first-come, first-serve side 10, 16, 17, 19, 21, 22.
We travel with kids (13 &9) so tend to stay close to playgrounds, washrooms & beach trails.
