Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort, Hartland, Michigan

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We are long-time members of this resort. The overall rating reflects our experience over the 15+ years we have been members. 'Value' is rated satisfactory for the following reasons: 1-The location and proximity to shopping and work allows year-round use. 2-The property is beautiful, containing a good fishing lake, hiking trails, and a separation from the surrounding urban areas. 3-The resort is surrounded by an upscale 27-hole golf course that is buffered from the campground and lake by trees and natural terrain. 'Service' is rated terrible for the following reasons: 1-If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints that reflect negatively on the resort, your treatment by the resort management and staff may become adversarial. 2-The resort management is very legalistic. The default response to any incident or misfortune is the "member bears all responsibility". For instance, if a tree limb falls on your camper, the resort bears no responsibility. If the resort damages your camper while moving it to a site, the resort is not responsible. We've rated 'Cleanliness' as bad for these reasons: 1-The cleaning schedules for the facilities are set up for the convenience of the staff, not for the members. For instance, the main bathrooms/showers are cleaned during the busiest times in the morning when most members want to get ready for the day. 2-Even after 'cleaning', the results are substandard. As mentioned in other reviews, the sites are not level and do not drain properly. Some sites have been improved recently with crushed stone, but many others remain unimproved. The spring thaw is very messy! When our membership becomes due again, we will have to decide on whether the advantages outweigh the negatives. We have learned to keep a low profile and stay away from management and certain staff members. This privately-owned resort regularly bars members from using the campground as a tool to resolve disputes. Few people have the resources for legal battles. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Travel Trailer.
