Sites are $32 per night and park passes are $5 per stay. Motorhomes now must also purchase a park pass. Seniors get 20% off on site fee. Our senior two day stay was $61.20 for a spacious 30 amp level pull thru site with water. Overall this SP is a great place with deer walking around. Very quiet here, absolutely no road noise. There are several walking trails here as well as the Fort. TV via batwing was very good. Verizon cell and broadband were also very good.

Rate is based on $16 for day use plus fees and taxes for a total of $19.19. While this is a nice CG once you get into it, it is by no means big rig friendly. The main road into the park is narrow and twisty, but it has plenty of places where two vehicles can pass. However the nearly half mile long road up to the CG is one lane only with no options for passing another vehicle. The road edges have serious erosion making pulling off the road impossible for normal vehicles and motorhomes. I mentioned this to the ranger and she told us that they get away with it because of the low volume of campers and that most people leave early in the day and people arriving come in later. She did say that people have had to back down the road at times. I would recommend sending someone up or down before attempting to enter or exit. After our one day stay, my wife went down in our toad first to stop anyone from coming up. She was going to call to give the all clear, but the bottom of the CG road was a Verizon dead spot. Our Verizon cell and broadband did work up in the CG and batwing was good, but with mostly PBS type stations. This is not a place that we would return to because of the CG road. But for smaller units and tents this is a pretty nice CG. During our early August mid-week stay, we were the only people in the entire CG. The host site had a trailer on it, but they were not there the day we were.

Date of Stay:

Rate based on two nights of Good Sam, $30, two nights of Passport America, $16.75, plus 6% tax. Easy access off of I-74 exit 11, head south on 601 in the left hand lane. Turn left where that lane ends onto S McKinney and then another left on Rustic Village Trail . The second left is just across from the Family Fellowship Chapel after a sharp left hand turn in the road (look for blue signs). A wide variety of sites here on multiple levels. They put the transients on the lowest level. Some are pull thrus and others are backins, all are fairly level with a crushed stone base. Sites are 50 amp full hookups with a pretty good cable lineup and WiFi. It was usable during our 4 day stay, but the CG was less than half full. The laundry room leaves a lot to be desired. No A/C and the machines and folding table were in dire need of cleaning. The insides of the machines were not bad though.

Easy access off of I-71 exit 235, go west on Bagley 1 mile. On the left side you will pass a Hospital and a Bank, then you will see the fairgrounds entrance road with a white fence running along both sides of it. Turn left there and then take the second right, it goes thru a gate in the fence just before the white fairgrounds buildings and the RV sites are straight ahead. Nothing fancy here, all hard packed somewhat level grass back ins. The sites on the left side are full hookup sites. The sites on the right are mostly electric only. One thing I noticed was there are no 30 amp outlets. The 6 electric posts I checked, all had two 50 amp outlets and a couple of 20 amp outlets. You will need an 50 to 30 adapter for 30 amp service. WiFi is available, but costly starting at $1.99 for two hours. Verizon cell and broadband were both excellent. There is a cell tower on site as well as a windmill. They have a weekly rate of $150.

Sites are $19 per day plus $48 in fees for out of state residents. We had to pay $31 for an annual pass for our toad (or $9 per day). Then another $9 to get our motorhome in and a $8 reservation fee. No fee for same day reservations at the CG. So most of the local folks just drive up for a site. This gives the park somewhat of a first come, first served for site selection. In our 12 day stay, the CG never filled. The only threaded water connections are at the dump station. The water inside the campground loops are not threaded. We had no problems U-turning back into the dump station upon arrival to fill our tank. People working here are very good, we were able to extend our stay and were allowed in and out to fill our propane tank. TV via batwing was mostly good, Verizon cell and broadband were the same. Overall a nice stay in a good area about an hour from downtown Detroit and The Henry Ford attractions.

A nice quiet campground with full hookups and Wi-Fi . Wi-Fi was so so during our 3 day stay, could only access it at limited times. Sites here have concrete pads. There is a limited number of 50 amp sites. Electric and sewer are in the correct location. Water is shared by 4 sites, so extra hoses are needed. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband also very good. Overall a nice place to spend some time.

This Passport America park is located on M-65 in Twining. The pull thru's are limited due to the placement of trees. The grass sites are very 'lumpy' and it took awhile to get into a position before we were able to put down our jacks. It was very quiet here and we selected it because other area parks were filled for the mid-July weekend. Overall it was OK here, but not a destination park. There are only two 50 amps sites, pedestal 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 both have a 50 amp outlet and a 30 amp outlet. I would be leery of coming in after or during heavy rains as the grass pads seemed soft underneath. TV via bat wing was good and Verizon cell and broadband very good.

Passport America rate. As reviewed before, this is a dated mobile home / trailer park with RV sites. Lots of older units, so it is not the best looking place we been too. Interior roads are on the poor side, but are hard packed gravel. After a day of rain during our stay, I could not see where one could get stuck. We found people here to be friendly and helpful. We were in a nice level roomy grass pull-through site with 50 amp electric and water with a picnic table and fire ring. The electric looks like it has been updated at some point as it was a newer style pedestal. The Wi-Fi was very good during our stay. TV via batwing was good with a limited number of stations. We enjoyed our stay and would come again.

We stayed in the main camp area that runs along 11th street. This area has two rows of electric posts. Each post serves two sites for a total of four rows of campsites. Each site also has two 30 amp outlets available. Most sites work as pull thrus, but many sites have trees in unlikely locations (right in the middle of what should be the pad). We made the mistake of setting up in the row farthest from 11th street thinking it would be the quietest. That row has a gravel road running in front of it and there was a lot more traffic than you would expect with nothing happening at the fairgrounds. That raised lots of dust forcing us to keep windows closed all the time. We would have been better off in a row closer to the main road.

Date of Stay:

Hookups are 30 amp electric and water only. Pit toilet and no showers. At $20 a night, the value is off quite a bit. However, if you are self contained the location is very good. Sites are mostly level and grass. Big rigs might want to avoid the first gravel road as the trees have grown in quite a bit since our last stay.

Overall, this is a very nice RV Resort. All sites have double wide concrete pads and are nicely landscaped. All sites have 50 amp full hookups, with WiFi and cable. The cable was upgraded just after we arrived and carries appx. 30 basic cable stations. The sites are either back in sites, or pull in sites. They have a large clubhouse with an exercise room, pool room, sitting area, book swap, card room, etc. TV via bat wing was fair, Verizon cell and broadband both very good. One of the few draw backs is the laundry room, only 2 washers and 2 dryers. They do not allow any type of cloths lines here. Our rate based on an early season monthly special on the north sites only. These sites back up to a busy US-31 and at times it seemed that the traffic was inside the park. The monthly special needed to be completed by June 20th, so we had some real cold days during our stay.

Rates are $24 for water and electric, $26 with sewer. All sites are grass back-ins with 30 amp electric only. Each electric post serves 4 sites, 2 - 30 amp outlets on each side of the post. The water hookup also serves 4 sites. So the water and electric connections are on the wrong side for about half of the sites here. Extra hoses and power cords could be needed. Some sites are level and others will require a lot of blocks to level. The campground here is part of a recreation complex and close enough to walk to town. The complex also has a beach, playground, pavilion, tennis courts, etc. So this would be a good place for people with kids. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Wi-Fi was mostly good, but it did drop out for one of our two days here. TV via batwing was also pretty good.

Very good value with Golden Age pass. This COE park is just off of I-57 and very easy to get to and there is a lot to see and do in the area. You drive past the golf course pro shop to get to the campground. I am surprised that it has only been reviewed once before. But as mentioned in that review the sites are not level, most are sloped front to back and some of the slopes are severe. All sites are paved and most are very long. We came in with a list of available sites during the week in mid-May and found a fairly level site. But two of our rear tires still wanted to come off the ground; we did get level with a bit of maneuvering. Water is also available at the exit end of the dump station. Verizon voice and broadband both very good. TV via batwing was fair, ABC was strong, but both NBC and CBS would fade out during the day.

Great value with Golden Age pass. This is one of the nicest COE parks that we have been to. Every site here can be considered level and are paved. I did not see one site that would not work for a MH, although sites did vary in size. Rates vary with water front and water view sites being $2 more than the interior sites. Also in the off season the rates go down. Interior roads were all nicely paved and smooth, we looped thru the entire campground with our toad attached to pick a site. We ended up with a large lake front site, #6. TV via batwing was good, but with a limited number of networks. Verizon cell was good, broadband was mostly good but did get spotty at times when it dropped to 3G.

Sites here are all paved, back in's with water and electric. As mentioned in an earlier review the wi-fi is useless. TV via batwing and Verizon broadband were both very good. Most sites are fairly level, but some have settled in places making them 'lumpy'. To clarify an earlier post about the new 'ramp' at the entrance, think 'loading dock'. It is a monster and if you are towing with a MH, unhook before attempting to climb up. It is appx. 3 feet high and had our dolly ramps dragging the ground. The ramp is inside the park at the entrance office, but it is a two lane road with plenty of room to unhook your toad before it. This was our third and last time at this CG. We will drive in from the north side of the lake next time we want to visit New Orleans.
