Enjoy the summer activities at our campground and at Canadohta Lake.  We welcome our returning campers each year to our beautiful campground at Canadohta Lake.  Check out this page for the events around the lake both in our campground and sponsored by the local business association, CLABA.  

We hope you will become part of our camping family and enjoy the events as they happen! Each summer our small community transforms into a family fun place. Generations of families have spent their vacations at the Family Lake and many of our patrons have grown up here enjoying their summer vacations.  We have noticed that people bring their families back to enjoy the lake.   Proof that once you visit the'll want to return!  #canadohtaiscalling
