Chippewa Landing - Oak Grove Campground, Fife Lake, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

It is a fairly small RV park, but well maintained and very helpful and friendly staff. Our site had a city water and sewer hook up as well as electrical hookups. Oak Grove is a privately owned campground that is affiliated with Chippawa Landing Campground. Chippawa Landing is right on the Manistee River and offers canoe rentals. They have a bus that will pick you up from Oak Grove to take you to the drop off spot of your choice to canoe or tube down the river. A driver will drive you back to the Oak Grove Campground when you make it to Chippawa Landing. Chippawa Landing also offers campsites, but it is much more rustic and difficult to maneuver for a large RV or fifth wheel. We camped at Chippewa Landing - Oak Grove Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Paradise, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

My family had a very positive camping experience at Taquamenon Falls State Park. We stayed in the Lower Falls at the Portage Campground in site 50. Our camp site was a pull through and we had no problems getting in or out. There was a playground for my children to enjoy very close to our site and the bathrooms were also very close by. The walk to the Lower Falls was less than 5 minutes. There was a gift shop and cafe very close the the Falls. There is a trail to walk to the Upper Falls, but it is about a 5 mile hike from the Lower Falls, so be aware of that. You can also drive to the Upper Falls, but will still need to walk about half a mile to get to the stairs going down to the Falls. There are almost 100 steps which was exhausting for my young child. However, the view is spectacular and worth the effort. This is a Michigan State Park, so an annual pass is required for entry to the campgrounds. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We also visited Oswalds Bear Ranch which was about a 20 minute drive from the campground. It cost $20 for a carload to enter or $10 for one person.
