Forget What You Think You Know About Campgrounds

Coy & Wilma’s is not a typical campground with tiny campsites that look onto the back of other tiny campsites. We are the only private Rend Lake campground with giant sites set up for seasonal camping, full-time camp living, and a limited number of sites for overnight camping. Each of our campsites is totally original, and most are very private and well shaded by oak, maple, and hickory trees – a few even have open views to the countryside. We have a private fishing pond that is always stocked with crappie, catfish and bass and we are ideally located near the boat launch facilities at the Army Corps’ North Sandusky Campground and only steps away from the Rend Lake Bike Trail.

Easy access to the lake is important to most of our campers who boat and fish every day, but it is certainly not the only reason to camp or live at Coy & Wilma’s. Our greatest asset is actually our wonderful community of long-term campers. They are the reason Coy and Wilma’s is the best place at the lake to relax and spend time with family and friends.
