About Us

We are open all year long! Offering No-Contact Check In Services.

At Cougar Creek, we strive to make continuous improvements and upgrades. We love to have your feedback and suggestions on how we can improve our facilities. We are pet and quad friendly and we want our guests to enjoy their stay. Respecting your neighbors & other guests is always a Priority.

Cougar Creek Cabins and Campground is different from most of the campgrounds and motels in our area in that we have a bit of everything! We're a natural camping destination on 18 acres totally surrounded by crown land -- you can quad right from your campsite. We have treed back in sites or pull-through sites for your super unit, all sites have pic nic table, firepit & wood chopping block. We can block your estimated campsite / Cabin or Cottage needs giving guests time to make their individual booking.

With large group facilities, we're a great place to book for family reunions, staff parties, or any group event. With everything from fully equipped cabins to tent sites, we're the one destination that is sure to "please everyone" in the group. Contact us for more information, rates, and special offers. General site/cabin booking is available in advance, giving guests ample time to make their full reservation for your event.

Come join us to have some adventures, make memories, and cherish time with friends and family. We love laughter, music, and seeing people enjoy their time together; and we do everything we can to make your vacation a great one.
