For no-frills campers looking for a great spot in the UP, this campground is a hidden gem. The campsites are rustic (no water or electric at the site) and the bathrooms have only sinks & toilets (no showers). Despite the rustic conditions, the campground is full most every weekend during peak season. About half of the sites can be reserved online (ReserveAmerica.com). The rest of the sites are first come, first serve and those who know the area, come early to get their favorite sites. The sites are long and level and most have a fair amount of distance from their neighbors (separated by trees). The large inland lake is a popular place for boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming. For those not on the water, the campground is a great base for visiting all the local attractions while in the Upper Peninsula.

Nice large shaded campground with long & level pull-thru sites. Electric box was near the rear of the site so we had to park near the back - no issues with our cord reaching the electric box. Water had good pressure and sewer hookup was within easy reach. There is a playground but not much else if there are children in the group. No cable or Wi-Fi but several over the air channels to choose from. Park was quiet and well maintained. Interior roads were paved/gravel and the site was gravel - very easy to level.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground located a short distance off of I-75. Well placed signs help direct you - since you are traveling some local (narrow) roads. Decent layout of sites - we were only there for overnight. Pull-thru site was long enough and easy to level. Electric, water, and sewer all worked well and were within easy reach.

Grass pads not quite level but easy enough to get set up (we were only overnight). Power, water and sewer all worked well. Pool was nice but a little dirty. Lots of gnats in the area - office sold some bug spray that was supposed to be most effective, but they are gnats - no stopping them.

Best thing about this park was leaving. Discovered after we came back from dinner that the power had low voltage (our EMS was shutting down to prevent damage). Several attempts to get someone from the park to fix were not successful. Switched to a 30amp plug and had the same result. Bottom line is we spent two nights with no AC and significant interruption in our power supply. Park did not resolve the issue and offered nothing for the inconvenience (offered excuses for why the voltage was low - campground was full and they thought our EMS was causing the problem). Pull-thru site was long & level with all utilities within easy reach. Add to all this it was a holiday weekend and the park was full of people having a good time into all hours of the night. Lesson learned about this KOA - we will not be back.

Nice long, level pull-thru site near the front of the park. Park is off of I-10 so there is not any highway noise. Very welcoming at the office and had a guide to our site. All utilities were within easy reach and worked. Did not use the shower house or other amenities as we were just staying overnight.

Nice park with paved pad. Ours was a little out of level side to side but easy enough to set up. Roads can be a little tight when there is a crowd. Nice pool and observation deck. Utilities were easy to hook up and worked well. Park is across the road from Carrabelle Beach (within easy walking distance) and very nice for family.

Nice, well maintained park. Very clean and well kept grass areas around the park. Some sites have shade while others are mostly open. Appears that a lot of work has been done recently to clean things up. We had a paved pull-thru site with easy setup, leveling and access to utilities. Power, water pressure and sewer all worked well. Park has two sections - up front near the office and farther out by the lake. Both looked to have several well-maintained longer term residents/workers. Appreciate that they asked if I was a veteran and gave me a military discount. No pool but the lake has a couple of boats/canoes that can be used and the lake is a catch/release with no license needed. There is Wi-Fi available along with cable TV - signal is good for both. Bath/showers are individual rooms and are well maintained. There is some road construction that makes getting to the park a little difficult and there could be more signs for the park but our GPS got us there without any significant problems.

Nice park with 3 sections (12 sites each). Each site has a covered picnic table. There are no trees at the sites. Reservations are highly suggested as the campground is full most nights in the summer. Beach access for each camping section is nearby and an easy walk - and there wasn't any sort of crowd on the beach no matter what time of day you went. There is a new bath/shower house (we did not use). Pads are cement and level - easy to back in and setup. Pads do flood easily after rain and there were park employees who came by to drain the water from the pads. There is also a section on the bay side with a loop for campers and a loop for tents (shower house is located on the tent loop).

Site was level and easy to back into. We were in the Oaks section. We arrived during a period of heavy rains and the grounds were saturated. Our site had gravel we were able to park and level the trailer. The park is older and many sites show their age with grass growing in between the gravel. Even as an older park many areas appear to be well maintained. Once the rain ended there were people out mowing grass and trimming. Water, electric, and sewer worked well. The location was excellent for our needs as we were in the process of changing residency and getting set up for full-time. This is a good place for longer stays or overnight depending on your needs.

Entry/exit for this park can be somewhat tricky due to the frontage road and nearby interstate set up. Park is just off of I-30 and the frontage road takes you directly to the park. However, if you pass it by mistake, you have to make a rather large loop around to get back. Good pull-thru site, easy to level, long with water, electric and sewer within easy reach. Didn't use the bathhouse or laundry but both looked clean and well maintained.

Nice park, located near I-40. Entrance is off of Confederate Ave. (behind a restaurant) and may be a little hard to find. Road leading in is a little rough so take it slow. Good pull-thru sites with gravel and easy to level. Power, water, and sewer are handy (water pressure was good). Looked like newer hookups. No shower house or other amenities - this is a good overnight/short stay location.

This is a very clean park where the work by the owners is visible in a neatly maintained park. The sites are gravel and we were able to get into a level position easily. Located near Bloomington/Normal on I-74 and within easy drive of I-55 and I-39. The park is wedged between the interstate and a local train track (the location is what it is). There is noise from the interstate and a train that comes through early in the morning several days each week. There are two 'sections' - 30 amp and 50-amp. Sites in the 30-amp section are both pull-thru and some back-in. The 50 amp section is pull-thru with large, long driveways (many 40+ foot motor homes and towables were easily parked). Sites in the 30-amp section have shorter driveways but there is more space in-between sites. Water pressure is good. Water source is from a well and it's run through a softener. Well water does have some air and minerals (good for washing but you may want to use a filter or get purified water to drink). There is a small playground and pool (too early in the season to be open). There is Wi-Fi available but our distance from the broadcast source made it weak. For us, it was a great place to set up while we closed on our house before setting out to full-time. It is also a good stop for overnight.

Believe this park has recently changed owners/name - no web site but phone number was good. Called ahead same day and was able to get site with late arrival (manager even came around to see that we found the site). The sites are close together and looked to be older. No problem leveling our rig and hooking up. There were several long-term residents. The car display and large cowboy statue are a nice touch. This park just east of the Cadillac ranch outside of Amarillo. Easy access to I-40 and there was some road noise (didn't keep us up at night though). A good choice for our overnight stay.

Well laid out campground with nice hookup posts (power, cable). Clean level sites, easy navigation on the gravel roads. Staff waited past closing to check us in and escort us to the site. Our site had trees/shade. Easy access off of I-44 but didn't hear any road noise.
