Van Riper State Park, Champion, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Oh, my! What a beautiful park! On-line reservations were made with ReserveAmerica, so their up-charge is reflected in the rate. Check in was friendly and easy. Our site was ADA, which I did not knowingly request. Perhaps a glitch with RA, or perhaps I wasn't paying attention and clicked through the reservation process. We are only here for an overnight, so no problem according to the ranger. Sites are very roomy - electric only. This campground is very family friendly; satellite-friendly not so much, but our site worked. And - the best for last - FREE WiFi! We are very impressed with Michigan state parks. MI DNR you are three for three. Well done! We camped at Van Riper State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Aune-Osborn Campground, Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This cg features level grassy sites with a view of St Mary River and passing lake freighters. Drainage is poor, so sites remain quite wet following rain. We even noticed some campers that appeared to be "marooned." Our water connection was almost 100' away, but friendly cg staff loaned us a 50' hose, so all was well. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Paradise, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Yet another great Michigan State Park. Perfectly situated for hikes to both Lower and Upper Tahquamenon Falls. Our site was not satellite-friendly, and I believe that is the case overall. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Wilkins Historic State Park, Copper Harbor, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is another family-friendly Michigan State Park. Sites are private, level and spacious. We camped in a 50A pull-thru (one of nine available). Being satellite-friendly was a bonus. Our previous MI state park (Van Riper) offered free WiFi, but that is not the case here. Also, there is no cell service whatsoever, but that is not the park's fault. We camped at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Straits State Park, Saint Ignace, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the second of five MI state parks, and we are definitely impressed! Staff was friendly and helpful. Campsites are roomy, grass/gravel and fairly level. Our site was satellite-friendly, which we appreciate. Restrooms and showers are clean and relatively modern. Straits and the previous SP set the bar. We hope the next three maintain this standard. Well done, MI DNR! We camped at Straits State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground, Mancelona, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Absolutely superb! We have stayed at several so-called resorts, but this is the ONLY one that truly lives up to its name. The owner and staff provide over-the-top service: ice, firewood, and mail delivered to your site, as well as daily trash pick up. Sites are grass-covered, level, roomy and satellite-friendly. Apparently, this is a former Christmas tree farm, with many of the trees providing shelter and privacy between sites - a really nice touch. The FREE WiFi worked well. This resort-campground boasts a heated swimming pool, basketball, volleyball, pickleball courts, and a 1.8 mile nature trail. The strictly enforced 5 mph speed limit makes this park very kid friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and absolutely look forward to another visit. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Orchard Beach State Park, Manistee, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice, well maintained state park. Spacious sites with table and fire ring. Restrooms and showers are clean, but dated. Few satellite-friendly sites, but ours worked well. Nice hiking trails across the street. There is a beach of sorts less than one mile north on Lakeshore Rd. Weather was quite rainy/blustery during our stay, thus did not have an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors as much as we wanted, but we would definitely return. We compliment MI DNR on a job well done! We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sunny's Campground, Wauseon, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a mega-park with 800 campsites -- the vast majority being seasonal. The park is clean, neat, and well maintained. Transient sites are in the open and satellite-friendly. $33 per day buys you a back-in with 30A and water. Dump station (free), or pump-out ($8 fee) are available. Campground charges an additional $2.50 per day if you intend to use your air conditioner. WiFi is available for ~$3 per day. It worked fairly well. There is no AT&T service within the campground, but we are told Verizon works fine. We would stay here again. We camped at Sunny's Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Monroe Co. / Toledo North KOA, Petersburg, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendly, helpful staff. This campground is obviously geared to families with children. If you are a senior with no desire to participate in hayrides or the "free" pancake breakfast, be sure to request NO resort fee when you make reservations. Few satellite-friendly sites, although cable TV is included on many sites. Would stay again as it is the only campground near family and friends in Toledo. We camped at Monroe Co. / Toledo North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Carlson Army Recreational Area (Military FamCamp), Muldraugh, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a peaceful, quiet campground located not far from the main Ft Knox base. Grounds and bathhouse were beautifully and meticulously maintained. There is a lovely hiking trail to the nearby lake where one can fish as well. There appeared to be many long-term campers, with semi-permanent fixtures, but no visible sign of occupancy. Such "homesteaders" make it difficult for those who simply wish to visit the area for a few days. The free WiFi was poor at best, and there was NO AT&T wireless coverage, which we understand is not the campground's fault. In our situation, we expect to be connected 24x7, so were grateful when we moved out of the gully after four days. Considering the wireless and Internet situation, we will likely not stay here again. We camped at Camp Carlson Army Recreational Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Outdoor Resorts / Gatlinburg, Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very clean and well-maintained park, with friendly and helpful staff.
All sites are owned, with some rented; therefore it is safe to say not all sites are equal. Ours was great! If "satellite-friendly" is important, be sure to ask in advance. WiFi was absolutely terrible. We were also surprised to experience very low water pressure - really low. This may have been a temporary issue, but would not hurt to ask when reserving.
As another reviewer pointed out, this campground is 11 miles from Gatlinburg. This, in our opinion, is too far from the action. We camped at Outdoor Resorts / Gatlinburg in a Fifth Wheel.
