Yes, the sites are tight to get into, but I had room to put our trailer with the slide out and park my Super Duty next to it. On the other side, we had the awning out, the firepit, and still had room to have cornhole set up. I don't think there's a site in here that's more than a 5 minute walk to the huge, soft sand beach on Lake Michigan. I loved having a separate dog friendly beach for my dogs. Note: you will get sand everywhere! Climb the dunes by the beach for fantastic views of the water during the day or a million stars at night. Great sunset viewing on the beach that faces due west. We were there on Memorial Day weekend and it was packed. Regular ranger patrols, along with local police patrols through the park kept the crazies in check. It's a 5-10 minute walk to downtown Pentwater if you are looking to eat out, get groceries, shopping, etc. We will definitely stay here again.

We were looking for something close to Detroit Tigers spring training and this filled the bill. It's mostly seasonals (in good repair, not like a trailer junkyard) with people in the 60+ age group. We were assigned a back-in site for our travel trailer. However the utilities were set up on the opposite side of the trailer so we ended up pulling in like the motorhomes near us. If we had backed in, the awning side of the trailer would have been facing the water/sewer/electric hook ups with the patio on the wrong side of the trailer. Fortunately, we were at the end of the row so I could get the truck out. I have no complaints about Sanlan, just found the whole Lakeland area to be lacking in restaurants, shopping, anything to do. We bugged out early to move to Charleston.

Nice state park less than 15 minutes from Miami University. RV sites are electric only and pretty level. Nice space between sites. Although we didn't use the restrooms and showers, we did go in to check 'em out. Not super nice, but clean and will do the job. Large rolling grounds with plenty of hiking trails nearby. They accept Passport America for one night. Verizon service 2-3 bars 4G in the campground but very spotty out in the park. TV signal decent from Cincinnati (we received 30+ channels). Other than the occasional ranger on patrol, didn't really see any employees. That could be the late season.

This was the first time we really disagreed with the other reviews on RV Park Reviews. The owners seemed to be in a bad mood both times we spoke to them. It's a small, older park with very narrow roads and somewhat bizarre site placement. There are a few pull-thru sites and a few sites on the very edge that are easy to get into or out of. Our site, #56, was extremely narrow & unlevel and took us quite a while to position the trailer between the trees so we could open the slide-out. We leveled, hooked up everything, and went inside for lunch. Within 10 minutes, we noticed we weren't level (about a half bubble off according to our level). After another 10 minutes we checked again and found it was a full bubble out of level. Went outside to check and our leveling blocks had sunk into the soil by an inch and a half. In 12 years of RVing, I've never had this happen. We ended up having to completely break camp, hook up to the truck and move the trailer so we could put solid wood under the leveling blocks. That took about an hour and was extremely frustrating, especially when I politely mentioned it to Mr. Owner and he accused me of "doing something to the site." I also asked him about the wi-fi. We were about five sites from the wi-fi antenna but signal wasn't strong enough to connect to our laptop or phones. His reply was that the park was full (it was about half full) and that, if I wanted to use my "doodads and gadgets," maybe I "should get up at 2:30 in the morning" to do so. The wi-fi wasn't slow, just too weak. Bathrooms were tired-looking, but mostly clean. Showers were separate. There was only one shower that was unlocked so I'm glad we had full hook ups and were using our own facilities. The dump station was positioned in the same parking area as the entrance, the camp store parking, and the dumpster. Since the dump station wasn't a pull through arrangement, I imagine it would be a traffic nightmare to get a lot of people through.

This is my second review of this extremely near and clean park. The first time, we had a smaller camper and stayed in the regular area. We are too big now so we stayed in the premium area. Have their own fire pits, but two community pits were nearby. Sites were very generous in width, with a nice level parking pad. Utility hookups were in great condition and the water had two spigots per site (nice feature, handy for dog rinsing while keeping RV hooked up). Tried the restrooms/showers this time and they are modern and spotless. In ten years of camping, I have never seen such a clean park (there's an older gentleman that appears to rake each site daily). The seasonal sites are very nice trailers, no Sanford & Son units anywhere. While the management seems a bit stern, I prefer that to the "anything goes" campgrounds we encounter on occasion. On the narrowness, bring your patience and use your cell phones/radios with your backing assistant. The sites are 90 degrees to the road and it's a single lane road. Go slowly and you should be able to make it work. If the campground was full, I'm not sure I could have done it with my crew cab pickup with long bed and a 32' trailer. Fortunately, the site across the aisle was open so I could pull in there to help in backing. Once you're on the site, you're minutes from the beach and wonderful sunset over Lake Michigan.

This isn't a horrible campground, but their website really misrepresents what the place looks like. Bathrooms and showers were clean and the grounds were generally in good condition. No fires at your site unless you bring your own raised fire pit. Community pit is available and wood is provided which was nice. Good number of cable channels and hookups were in good condition. WiFi was pretty good, too. When we checked in, we were assigned to the "classic" area. This is not shown on the video/photos at their website. We were adjacent to a large parking lot for the huge fire station at that was surrounded by the campground. No landscaping, no privacy fence, just looking directly into the parking lot. 2-3 fire runs a night with lights & sirens blaring was a bit annoying. Power hookups look like they had been upgraded in the past few years, but the old poles, with wires hanging out, were still in place. Not sure if any of those were live. Neighbor on a long term spot was nice, but had a really old trailer that was missing a window and had liberal use of duct tape to hold the rest together. There were quite a few dumpy units on long term lots here. Looked more like a trailer park than a campground. If you need to stay in the city, this is an OK campground. However, we wouldn't stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Nice basic campground with pull through sites. No cable but we were able to get 15-20 over the air stations. Nice little gas station (with diesel) with a basic store, tiny restaurant, and soda fountain. Great for a quick overnight stay right off the freeway.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Good, very basic campground, great for a quick overnight. Close to freeway, but far away enough so you don't hear the traffic. Showers are concrete, but clean. Site was level, water pressure good, nice hookups (power pole and water connectors looked newer). Owner was helpful and offered insight on local restaurants and other businesses. We'd stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Grounds and bathrooms/showers were spotless. Camp store had next to nothing in it, but they did have ice and firewood available. The bath/shower were individual rooms with a shower, toilet, and sink in each. Site was level and the sewer connection actually ran downhill! Wi-Fi was spotty, often kicking us off and requiring reconnection. Cable channels were very snowy. After a county-wide power outage, the cable TV did not return. This park is a long drive from Grand Teton National Park. Took us an average of 60 minutes on twisty mountain roads to get to the park. Don't try the drive at night since the hills are covered by moose, elk, deer, etc., waiting to trot out onto the road. It's a very nice campground, but we probably wouldn't stay here again due to the distance to the national park.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount + 2 add'l people. What a nice park! Right on the Yellowstone River. Felt more like a bed and breakfast since the owners were so helpful. They know the local restaurants, sights, & what to see/avoid. The camp store had a nice selection of necessaries and some nice gift items. The grounds, laundry, and showers were immaculate. Downside of location is road noise from passing traffic. It's minimal after dark, however. The campground is also a solid 30 minutes from Yellowstone so keep that in mind when planning your day. The Wi-Fi is pretty much useless, even late at night. We had 3G Verizon wireless so we used that instead. We would stay here again.

Good, basic campground for use as a base for visiting Teddy Roosevelt National Park. Sites are a bit narrow, but we were able to run out our 40" slide. We were warned that our site was uneven, but it was dead level. Pool is a bit of a walk from most sites. Wi-Fi is decent. Note: Medora has NO grocery store, only a small convenience store. If you need anything other than the most basic items, make sure to stop somewhere 30-60 miles before you get to Medora. There is nothing around here!

Wow! This place is huge, but it is subdivided into small areas with lots of privacy between sites. Hookups worked well with decent (but not too high) water pressure. Nice landscaping between sites. Gorgeous views of the straits, bridge, and Mackinac Island with common areas at the shoreline with benches. Showers/restrooms were clean, but could use updating. One note on the Wi-Fi. It was free in the office, store, and pool area, but not at our site. I didn't inquire as to the price, since we were there only one night.

For the price, this place isn't up to KOA standards. Our "large" pull thru site was barely long enough to accommodate a 32' trailer + 22' truck. The hookups were odd. The sewer was on one side of the trailer and the water & electric were on the patio side. We had to stretch our hose and cord right under our stairs to reach the connections. Quite a few sites had standing water on them. Small camp store not well-stocked. Free wifi, but pretty slow. We would not stay here again.

We stayed here for a week while dropping my daughter at nearby Hope College. First thing you will notice is the extremely tight corners when driving through the Standard Sites area. Their website states these spots hold up to a 28' trailer. I'm assuming they mean a 28' trailer dropped in by a crane since the roads are very narrow. My RV is 26.5' long and was difficult to get on a Standard Site. There are a lot of seasonal units but the vast majority are very nice park models that are well maintained, not the ratty old RVs that I usually see on seasonal lots. I required my son to work as a spotter at the front of the truck so I wouldn't hit the seasonal unit across the street, and my wife as a spotter in the rear to avoid hitting the landscaping and/or retaining wall. Go slow and be very patient and you can eventually get on the spot. The neighbor (a professional truck driver) had a small fifth wheel in the 25-28' size range was able to park his RV on the same size spot as mine. After parking, you will find the power pedestal, water, and sewer hookups to be in good working condition. You will also notice how squeaky clean the sites are. After a neighbor checked out, someone raked the site for 15 minutes and also shoveled out the fire pit. All sites have inground sprinklers so be careful of where you leave chairs, wood, etc., overnight. The pool, hot tub, showers, and restrooms were in great condition and again, very clean. We didn't use the playground, but it was in good condition. Main bike path to Lake Michigan is right at the entrance to the park. Wood was available for a reasonable price and they will loan you a wheelbarrow to get it to your site. Wi-Fi worked OK for me, not blazingly fast, but still very usable. Minor annoyances were the multiple speed bumps at the entrance/exit and the need to entry a number on a keypad to get in and out of the park. I would stay here again, but would use only the first 1 or 2 sites on the road side of the park in the Standard Sites area since they are angled for easier entry. Consider staying at the Premium Sites area for bigger sites but you will lose your firepit in that section.

Wow! This is the deal of a lifetime, right in Orlando. We were less than 10 minutes from Universal. Nice park with gated entrance (requires entering a code after hours to enter) in really nice upscale area. We were surprised that only 2/3 of the sites were full. $23 for a full hookup (water, electric, 30/50 Amp, and sewer) is insane this close to the theme parks. The only reason I didn't give them a 10 was the showers were pretty darn clean, just not squeaky clean.
