This is an attempt to post several pictures to show how tight this park is.
This park is a nightmare for large rigs. Our 36 foot MH barely fit.
One MH did hit a tree pulling in.
They have a field with about 18 full hookups, but once they get your money, they will not let you change. They have a park map on their site and if you view it from Google Earth, you can see the field. No cable tv and the trees block sat service and if it rains, they block over the air tv.

Looks like a nice park to me. I really don't think it is either the tree's or the campground's fault that satellite service is blocked. If you need a satellite friendly site, ask before you go. Many people like sites like those pictured, it is more camping than RVing.

It is if you have a small rig.
What I referred to as "the field" is about the only satellite friendly sites.
The workcampers are set up on a back row and just outside the wooded area have 5 sat dishes set up. I did ask for a satellite friendly site and after I saw how Google Earth matched up to the site map on their web site, I called back and requested one of those sites even if it meant I would have to move once over a 4 night period. I watched and there were always 3 or 4 sites open in "the field". The MH that hit the tree was only a 34'. Nothing is really big rig friendly except "the field". We had a pull through site and had to back up twice and reposition ourselves to get into it. Although they have plenty of staff and golf carts, they do not escort you to your site. For the extra price you pay at KOA's, I have found that most do.
One thing in their favor is that they are the only game in town if you wish to be within 25 miles of The Henry Ford Museum and other Ford attractions.

For a person with a pop-up or small camper, the park is great. BUT, you should tell them you have something larger than you really do. Some sites will not hold a large pop up plus a pickup truck. The day we left, we had to ask two people to please move their vehicles out of the road. Each were on a site so small they had to partially park in the road with their vehicle.
