We have been to this park three times in as many years. This year, it is under new management, but other than the sign stating "New Management", it doesn't appear as if anything has changed really. The park has a ton of potential. They have a lot of kids activities, some included with your stay, some not. When we tried to upgrade the activities package for our kids, we couldn't get two employees to give us the same price. We were told $10 per kid when we checked in (we were tired from traveling and just wanted to get camp ready), then it became $20 per kid the next morning when we went up there to purchase it. We ended up not upgrading. The pool was closed the first day, but the employees ran a squirt gun wagon ride anytime a kid asked for it, so that was nice. Firewood was dry and delivered to your site. Sites were very unlevel, even for a premium site. Some sites were oddly placed, trees, fire pits, etc. Manager drove around continuously checking in and waving. A lot of young people in the office, never saw anyone over 25 that was a worker. This park needs some TLC and I think if the new management puts the work and money in, it could be a really nice park. We would return here, but it isn't a destination campground. Don't have high expectations of a KOA park, it is a campground that is dated and needs work.

We stayed 4 nights. Smaller campground that was just perfect. No frills, just camping, a nice beach. Very close to town, offered to call shuttle service for ferries. No full hookups, but if you needed to dump while there, they provided blue totes to dump. Staff was on site and friendly. Nightly group campfire on the beach was awesome! Beach was mostly sand with some rocks, but they were smooth. We will return here.

Stayed over Memorial Day weekend. Have stayed at this park many times over the past few years. You pay for location and kids activities here. Indoor pool is great, albeit crowded on holiday weekends (which is expected). They are building a new outdoor pool and redoing the mini golf right now. Roads are starting to show their age and can be a little hazardous walking in the dark. Walking distance to Bronner's and downtown Frankenmuth. Staff is always wonderful, never had any problems with them. Campground is in city limits, so that is why you need a portable fire pit per the city of Frankenmuth. Sites can be very small, especially if you have slides. Sewers can be far away on some sites as well. Pull-through power poles/water spigot can be right out your door on some pull-through sites as well. For the best sites, pay for the deluxe or premium sites, they have more room.

We were in the sites nearest the putt putt golf. The sites were very close together (if you have slides and your neighbor does too...it's a close fit!). We had a cement pad on our site, but just for the picnic table, the parking pad was stone. The pool was terrible. No kiddy pool (it was drained) and the big pool was so cloudy, you couldn't see your feet in the shallow end. Lots of stuff floating in the pool. The beach is very nice and is open to the public ($). We enjoyed the beach more than the pool. Garbage was to be picked up daily...never was until Sunday around 10am, by then large piles had built up. Firewood was expensive and new cut wood that was wet, wouldn't burn. House across the street sold good firewood dirt cheap, buy it there. Not a bad campground, but not a great campground. I won't go back, I will look for something else in the area.

Yes the sites are close together as mentioned before, but the staff is accommodating if you don't like your exact site and another is available. Lots of kids activities, indoor pool. Close walk to downtown. Just before bad weather came through, staff came to every site and made sure we were prepared, nice touch. We will stay here again.

This park is a great park! We camped in the newer section where there wasn't a lot of trees, the old section does have a lot of trees. The restrooms are spectacular in this section and the entire campground is maintained very well. Owners on site and very friendly! Dog park, activities galore (not all cost money and ones that do are low $). Had a great time and we will camp here again!
