For those of you that remember Summit Lake Lodge, we are no longer open as a vacation rental (on from 2012-2018), but we still welcome travelers with an RV to stay at beautiful Camp Summit.

Dale Pavlis put in the work to establish, beautify, and gain the trust of many repeat guests over the past nine years at our lakeside campground, and now Camp Summit is ready for new owners to take over this turnkey business for its 10th season in beautiful Southwest Minnesota. We are open from April – November depending on the weather. For more information, contact the new owners, Colton and Peter.

We have just a few simple rules for Camp Summit campers:

  • We love supplying a safe area for you to enjoy a campfire, but we ask that you remove things from the fire ring for the next guests that don’t burn, like cans and bottles.
  • We also provide picnic tables for every site and ask that you put them back in their original location if you move them during your stay. Thanks for helping to make it easier for us to keep our grass trimmed!
  • We’re an environmentally-friendly campground, with a recycling shed a short walk away, and campers are responsible for carrying out their own trash. 
  • We’re a pet-friendly campground to all four-legged family members on a leash, but don’t forget your bags to pick up the piles!
  • Thank you for leaving your campsite clean for the next group and for being courteous to others during your stay.

We really enjoy our Camp Summit guests!
