Visiting Lake Chala was one of my favorite things I did in the two months I spent in Tanzania. My boyfriend and I went one weekend and had basically the entire camp to ourselves! We were two of eight people staying at the entire campground, with the other six all staying in the bungalows. It was very clean, hot showers, and even included sleeping mats, sheets, and pillows with the tent rental. The food was the best we had throughout our entire time in Africa, the hike around the lake was fun, and you can't beat the views (especially eating dinner looking over the lake as monkeys are jumping between trees). The staff was awesome, very helpful and friendly, and even made us our own bonfire one evening. The manager generously offered to let us use his kayaks they had just purchased, but by then our time was running out. Perfect place to read a book, drink a beer, or bonfire with friends!
