I see people come and how excited they are to start their vacations and how sad they are to leave. It's such a great place to live, work or visit. Everyone is so friendly and helpful here. My thanks to the Galles family for sharing all this with me for all these years. Love you all. (Sandra F.)

We have had a seasonal camper here for 15 years and really enjoy it. It's a nice quiet resort with a good fishing lake, activities for the kids, store and nice neighbors. There's lots of room so no one is crowded together like many campgrounds. Beautiful waterfront cabins and always well maintained. Great for a family vacation with many things to do nearby. (Ray V.)

Thanks guys for another great week I already can't wait for next July. You guys have a great place, and it has become a tradition for our little family every year, thanks Matt, Bruce and Donna. (Eric D).

There are no words to describe this wonderland. We have been coming to Upper Cullen before the Bruce and Donna days. We started out with the pickup camping. We tried all the camp sites. Liked the point the best. We did the cabin thing for a change of pace. It has always been well run. Well maintained and friendly atmosphere. There isn't anything they won't do to help out. So many wonderful memories. Now I am a permanent site owner and looking for many more years of enjoyment. I know I can always count on this family run business for anything I need. They are one of a kind operation and loved by all. (Diane K.)

We come here every year for our summer vacation and we love it!! The cabins are always clean and waiting, the staff is absolutely wonderful!!! So many activities to do around the resort and all of these wonderful things keep us coming back each year. Thanks to you all !! We love you all and look forward to next summer with you again. (Cheryl R.)

We just camped here for a week and loved it!!!! We have 3 kids and the playground was right next to us so they were never at the camper unless they were hungry. They offered activities for the kids during the week like face painting and hayrides. We rented a pontoon for a few hours and had a blast fishing and swimming. The staff were super nice and helpful. Always asking how we were doing and interacted with the kids when they saw them. We are definitely going back!!! (Angela W.)

We've been coming here for who knows how long, and we've never been disappointed, it's always a great time, the owners and staff are all friendly and great, always willing to help everything is super nice and clean. The sights are amazing, the cabins are great, the lake is nice and the fishing is great, could not recommend a better place! (Matt S.)

Our families have been going to Upper Cullen Resort since 1979. My two brothers and I would rent 3 cabins the last week of June. All of our kids just loved it every year. Now they are all grown up and have there own cabins with there kids. We now have 6 cabins that week and it is called Wood week. I bring my cotton candy machine up for fun on the beach. It gets better every year.
Thank you Upper Cullen Resort. (Tim W.)
