Harbortown RV Resort, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

This was our third Halloween visit. Many people decorate their campsite quite elaborately, and the kids come back with a huge haul of candy. (It can be hard to get through all of the campsites during the one hour Trick or Treat unless you move quickly LOL.) Almost everyone gives away candy, though most don't decorate extensively (we didn't decorate at all). The kids' activities are nice as well and separated by younger/older age groups. Crafts during the weekend that we visited included painting pumpkins and making Halloween bags (colored nice canvas bags with markers). There was a small charge for the activities - $4 for the pumpkin painting and $7 for the canvas bags (which I thought was well worth it). They had a 50/50 raffle (drawn during the Saturday night costume party - no need to be present because they will post the winning tickets outside of the office the next day). They also had a "guess the pumpkin weight" (for adults, who can win a one-night stay), and a "guess the number of candy corn pieces" in a container for the kids (for an undisclosed prize). While we didn't use the showers this time, we have done so during two of our Halloween visits when we owned a travel trailer that didn't have its own shower. They were always clean and well-maintained. There are other things for kids to do beyond the organized activities, and they also have a small, paved walking path at the back of the campground. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Covert / South Haven KOA, Covert, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $77.00
Overall Rating:

This is a really nice park. It was mostly filled the weekend we were there, even though it was after Labor Day. Lots of kids, but very quiet. There were a number of activities for the kids. Our dog enjoyed the dog park, and we appreciated the very helpful escort when we arrived. They sent me an email a day or so before our reservation date, offering us the ability to order pizza delivered to the site when we arrived. Also a nice touch.

We had a premium site, and it came with premium wifi, but I wasn't impressed with either the premium or the regular wifi. We liked our site: it had a nice gas grill, patio set, and a two-seat bench with a table in the middle by the fire pit. Very pretty.

We went to visit the dunes during our stay, and it was ~1/2 hour drive to get there. Honestly, my only complaint, and it was a pretty major annoyance, is about the weeds that had small burrs in them that grew along the park's dirt roads. Unfortunately, our dog got burrs in all of her feet before we knew that they were there. The plants themselves weren't really obvious: they looked like any other small, short weed right next to the road and the burrs were green and not obvious at all. We hadn't gone 15 steps before the dog refused to walk anymore, and we had to carry her to and pick out about 20 burrs from the fur around her feet and in between her toes while she cried. (Which of course stuck our fingers while we were trying to remove them.) I think they should mow about six inches further in from the roadway, and that would solve the problem. Once we knew they were there, we were able to walk in the middle of the road and avoid them. We camped at Covert / South Haven KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park , Silver Lake, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very large, kid friendly park with over 200 sites and lots of mature shade trees. Unfortunately, the roadways are all one way and narrow. We had a back in site, and it was impossible for us to back in the camper. Someone who was more experienced helped us back in or it would have taken forever, and when one person is backing in, the roadway is blocked so no one can pass. They do not pick up your trash. You have to walk it to a dumpster. We played several games of pool in the recreation area at $.75 per game, but only one cue had a felt tip (all the others had fallen off). There was no bridge, no rack, and the light over the pool table was burned out. The pool was heated and we used it a couple of times. They claim that quiet hours are strictly enforced. THEY ARE NOT. We were near some very loud and inconsiderate neighbors. They continued on well past the start of quiet hours and they were never asked to turn the noise down. The park is really close to the dunes and the beach (literally a 10 minute walk), and it is ORV friendly. Unfortunately, that means that many people bring their noisy ORVs to the park. Even though they are prohibited from gunning their engines, and I don't think many people did, they are still loud when driving down the narrow roads. The wifi is really bad (probably the worst that we've experienced). This was really a problem for us because my husband had work to do and we weren't able to do anything on the internet after I exhausted my roaming data. I asked the staff about it and was told that's just how it is in the area and there was no premium wifi to purchase, but I noticed a distinctive speed increase after the park started emptying out on Sunday, so I think they don't have enough capacity for the number of people using it. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is a great place right next store to the campground that has shops, a restaurant, go karts, mini golf, a zip line, ice cream and fudge. Lots of fun!

Indian Springs Campground, North Bend, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is larger than it appears. We wanted a pull thru, so we didn't stay next to the lake. It was all gravel in our area with no shade trees. There appeared to be some long-term residents. The park is well maintained. There are several odd-looking ducks that roam the campground - they are fearless but friendly, and they don't seem to leave a lot of droppings around. They have limited office hours, and no one is there in the evenings. The office staff were very helpful in person and on the phone. They don't have online reservations, which I found irritating because I prefer to do everything electronically - we sent a deposit check through the US mail to hold the reservation. There are no organized kids activities, though there were paddle boats along the water that you can use. It was close to Cincinnati, which is why we chose it. I wouldn't consider this a destination campground, though if we'd chosen a back-in site along the water I might feel differently. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful with mature shade trees. Kid friendly, with lots of activities - pool, petting zoo, bounce pad, etc. Our site overlooked a cornfield. I would love to visit again. We camped at Sunbury / Columbus North KOA (formerly Autumn Lakes Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Holly, Holly, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

This is a KOA, not a Yogi Bear Jellystone park. Our site should not have been used-it was very muddy, had several deep ruts where someone had used it as a pass thru and had apparently gotten stuck, and the fire pit was completely filled with water the entire weekend (other sites were in much, much better shape because they appeared to be on higher ground). We were mud-covered after trying to set up and had difficulty avoiding the mud going in and out of the trailer. There was no picnic table and none was delivered after we left a message to ask for one. Office staff were kind, patient, and tried to be helpful but were also clearly new and needed training-this resulted in a 15-20 minute wait time every time I was in the office. Staff in the park were nice and tried to be helpful. We had to use the laundry because of the mud. The laundry room was very clean, but there were no change or soap dispensers and no wastebasket. There were 4 dryers; 2 weren't hooked up but had no sign, and I lost some coins in one of them because the change refund didn't work. The dryer I did use squeaked very loudly. The zip line was not open and appeared to have been closed for a long time (one pulley was hanging down until someone came by to secure it). Mini golf was not maintained (~1/3 of the cups extended above the hole, and the balls would bounce out). The tetherball rope was broken, but we saw someone come by to repair it just as we noticed it. There was a bounce pillow, 2 bounce houses, a skateboard park, outside bowling, and a small playground-but there was no park supervision. The grass was untrimmed though we did see someone coming around with a weed whacker occasionally. Sites are close together and are gravel and grass; roads are somewhat narrow. There are a limited number of full hookups (but they will do pump outs which was very nice). Other than the movie, the activities were the same on Saturday and Sunday on the holiday weekend. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Holly in a Travel Trailer.
