In the 1950's Phillip and Katherine Dingman came to Canadohta Lake and operated a small store and cottage rental business. Later, Harold and Nancy 'Dingman' Higby moved to Canadohta Lake from Meadville with their family to build a life founded on family values and having fun working together. Higby's Campground has been in operation at Canadohta Lake since 1970. Our campground is family owned and operated.
Harold and Nancy's sons, Mike and Mark, took over the daily operations in the summer of 2016. Mike's children, Damon and RyAnne (and their spouses Billie-Jo and Randy) have also been a big part of running the campground. You may also meet any of the young members of the 5th generation while visiting us (Cole, Lily, Dylan, Raelyn and JayAnne). They are usually riding bikes, skipping stones in the creek or swimming in the pool....
Higby's campground opens each year with our Memorial Weekend Picnic held at the campground. Our goal is to thank our campers and welcome them back for a new season. We appreciate the support from our campers, including some that have been with us since the campground opened at Canadohta Lake in 1970. Every year we welcome new campers for a fun filled season. We strive to provide a comfortable, family oriented place for our guests to spend their summers. We love Canadohta Lake and camping! Come stay with us and you will see... Canadohta is calling!
See you at camp,
The Higby Family
