Lakeshore Park Campground

St Ignace, Michigan

Date of Stay:

The owner is so sweet, but this campground is tired and really needs some TLC. The bathrooms are in really bad shape. We had a campsite right next to the gazebo/restroom building, which also doubles as a walkway. This means that when designing the campground, they did not allow for walkways in the entire park, so on a full weekend, everyone walks through everyone else campsite. It is the tackiest thing I have ever seen. I literally ran a rope across our site to prevent trespassing, and teenagers simply stepped over the rope and walked around our stuff. The location is very convenient to town. We honestly stayed here because everything else was booked and the price was less than other places. Would not come back unless they renovate the campsites. It's hard because it doesn't seem like there are many great campgrounds in this area. But the access to the Mackinac Island ferries are great.

This park is only 10 minutes off of highway 2 on the UP (upper peninsula)...so if you are traveling over the top of Michigan...this works really well. We were traveling from WI to St. Ignace. This is a small rustic, old-school family campground and it is right on the river. We pulled in late in the evening and rented tubes in the morning and had the most wonderful time. You can use your own tubes...we only had one, so we rented 3 more and my husband and the kids hopped in the river at the campground, I drove down the road and picked them up 45 minutes later. It was the perfect activity before we hopped back on the road (tube rentals are $10 each). Showers were nice and hot after being in the river. We would definitely do this again! We also had a convenient W/E pull-up site (basically parallel parking in a half-moon shape that was convenient).

This is a a family run campground, run by the sweetest couple. We really enjoyed our site, however this park seemed to mostly be long term campers. That always changes the vibe for us. Everything was clean, my son loved the catch & release pond. Sadly, the wooded areas had to be avoided during our stay because of heavy rains the week before and mosquitoes. We did not have a chance to use the pool. The location is fabulous. We were able to walk to the bakery for breakfast and Sister Bay was a quick drive up the road. This is also a great place to stay for those visiting the state parks. We did not have full hook-ups, so plan to visit their dump station. It was a very tight drive for our 37 foot fifth wheel to maneuver the interior rode that goes through the park, but doable. To reserve you must mail a check for a deposit as they do not accept credit cards. Plan to arrive with cash or check. This is a great home base to enjoy Door County.

You should stay at this park for the location and the free tickets to Noah's Ark. Although the staff were wonderful and there was frequent patrol of the staff, the grounds are very old and in need of much care. This is all eased by the fact that you can walk to the water-parks and that you get four free tickets...any additional tickets can be purchased in their office for half off, and the tickets are good for every day that you stay in their RV park...it is such a deal! We were placed in a site up by the office and pool, and after driving through the park, I would suggest the same. The roads are a bit tight, but we maneuvered just fine in a 38-footer. They have a pool and full hook-ups.

We loved this campground! It was truly the perfect option for our family to find that northern Minnesota experience that we were looking for. The location is great and the property is quaint and inviting...it evokes a sense of country comfort. The full hook-ups functioned properly, the interior roads are easy to navigate and the property is very well maintained so it has easy access for big rigs. Offers both pull-through and back-in sites. The game room is fabulous! It kept my tweens and teen very happy on a couple of rainy days (it includes an air hockey table that we loved among many other games and a huge lounge with a TV if you want to borrow one of their loaner dvd's). I was beyond impressed by the owners and their efforts to keep up the property. The sites are well kept with concrete patios and well-placed trees for shade between the sites. There are two playgrounds for littles, a mini-golf area, horse shoes and our favorite was the little lake with peddle boats. The icing on the cake for me was the value of this place. It truly is family friendly and this campground makes it a pleasure to camp: all of their activities are included in your camping, firewood is a reasonable fee, they have many little grocery items and cold treats in their store for the family at great prices and the ambiance is peaceful. It also sports and incredibly clean laundry room (one of the nicest I've seen in 19 states at a campground)! Also, we had no issue with the bathrooms being locked. We did "check-out" a restroom key by leaving a $5 deposit for our stay and then returned the key in exchange for a deposit prior to our departure. We also never had any trouble finding someone near the office.

Good spot to stop over for the night. We happened to pull in on Memorial Day weekend and snagged one of the last spots. It's close to the highway, but with very little road noise. They included a free bbq for the holiday weekend which was awesome. This is a bit more than we normally spend for a stop-over en-route, but this was well worth it. Very quaint and operated by great owners. All hook-ups functioned well and theres a small laundry room and store in the office. Our rate was 36, minus the Good Sam discount, but we were charged $9 as a kid tax ($3 per kid I'm assuming).

Lake Livingston State Park

Livingston, Texas

Date of Stay:

Loved this beautiful park. Its very wooded and we had a great lakeside spot. However, there were millions of caterpillars...literally falling out of the sky (spinning silks from the high trees and dangling down and dropping). The mosquitos were bad also. The interesting thing is...we ended up moving 30 minutes up the lake to another park and there are no bugs here. Our neighbors did say the bugs are not always this bad. The lakeside sites are beautiful though and I loved that we could fish from our site and the trees were perfect for hanging a hammock. Note that this park was closing April 1st, for the remainder of the year. Apparently they are renovating. There is a daily $5 charge for every person over 17, unless you buy the annual state park pass for $70 which allows all adults in your vehicle to avoid the $5 per day fee. There is also an extra $4 fee for an extra car, per day. Our site was a tight fit due to the trees being so close to the pad, but we were able to fit in our 37 foot 5th wheel. We were in the Piney Shores loop.

This stay has been great. We were at another park prior to our arrival here, and I must say that although both parks are on the same lake, our experience was entirely different. I am surprised by how much we love this park. Although it is an RV park setting, the view of the lake in our campsite is wonderful. We are elevated with a great lake view and there are trees to our north that block the wind. It is April and there are no bugs. At the other park we were overcome by mosquitoes and caterpillars, but here, not at all. This is not a huge KOA, but very clean and well maintained. Hookups all in working order, small laundry room, beach access, marina with boat rentals and a hot tub and unheated pool. There is a great restaurant (not related to the campground) on the property. There is highway noise. This is a great place if you want all the amenities and lake access without the bugs. It's not cheap but was just what we need for the weekend. Grocery store and gas is just up the road, but nothing much else around. Rate includes extra $5 for my 3rd child.

We stayed for 6 nights. I really love the park and the area. At first I was disappointed that it wasn't closer to downtown Jackson...however that quickly changed. We had a good week of rain and it was wonderful to be here. Felt like I really was glamping in rugged Wyoming. The property is cool. There are fabulous cabins in the front and there is no sign that says RV park. Be prepared to turn right, almost immediately after the Calico Italian restaurant. Pull through the slim driveway through the cabins and head to the back. It was quite expensive, but I suppose that is the nature of Jackson Hole. We saw many moose on the road. Our highlight was a black bear that came right up to our door and was galloping through the campground in the rain. Wifi was adequate, but not great. The laundry is pricey, but very spacious and clean. This CG attracted a wonderful group of campers. Would definitely return. Loved all the trees. Picnic tables, fire pits and pull throughs included.

Excellent location on Hebgen Lake. Took us about 20 minutes to get to the west Yellowstone Entrance each time, but we loved the view and being away from the town. Many rv parks in downtown, were literal parking lots...not my style. We were located behind the cabins. Customer service in the office was wonderful. A bit windy around 3:00 each day. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for 2 weeks. The front desk service is fabulous. The wi-fi was pretty good, our site was not too far from the office. I loved the foliage between my site and the neighboring one, however we did hear highway traffic, but it was not horrible. Great playground, and big-foot scavenger hunt for the kids. Fabulous location near West Glacier entrance. Sites are narrow, but love the big trees and gazebo with grills and tables.
