2013 Convention - Camping

Cooper's Lake Campground

Want to book a site, need info about your reservation or want to be on the wait list at Cooper's Lake for the 2013 Convention? You'll need to visit PGI Camping on the Cooper's Lake website to make, manage or review your reservation. If you don't have an account it'll only take a few minutes to register. This is the only way to make your camping reservation for the 2013 Convention. If you have specific camping questions, please contact Cooper's Lake.

Wondering what your site looks like? Cooper's Lake has a Campground Map with pictures. Just find your site on the map, click it and you can view a photo of your campsite.

You can also add or remove yourself from the wait list. Added to the wait list in La Porte? No worries, you've already been added! Keep in mind that only primitive sites are available. If you want electric or a hook up, you must be on the wait list. Some primitive sites can hold RVs.

Cooper's Lake doesn't charge a site fee, they charge per person per week. Weekly rates are $70 per adult and $21 per child (under 18). If you require electric or sewer there is a non-refundable deposit per site ($42 for sewer, $49 for electric). That covers all the "utilities" that will be used on the site for the week.

If you have a site at Cooper's Lake reserved, but have not paid for please contact Ashley ASAP to arrange payment. You will find her contact information below.

The Butler County CVB is in the process of arranging more sites with electricity, so if you are on the wait list hold tight! If you would like to be on the waitlist, contact Ashley.

If you are interested in primitive sites, there are several left!
