Nelson Carlson Lake

Campground/Day Park

Another great hot spot to enjoy the summer day is Nelson Carlson. This is a great area to bring your personal water craft and relax. There is an exceptional swim beach with various fire pits, picnic tables, and areas to camp at your leisure. If you’re looking for activities outside of the water, we have a swing set along with a tire swing for the whole family to enjoy!
