Amazingly, the bugs were not bad at all...because this is a heavily wooded campground. Satellite reception? Not likely. The Internet was good. Cellphone reception is also, very good. This campground is under new ownership, and needs allot of help. I would think that Minneapolis could support a great KOA. On the bad side: the dust was bad, the workers were not very friendly, the roads were in some cases overly narrow, and there are no planned activities. I was disappointed. We will not likely return.

It always depends what you are looking for in a campground. The positives are plentiful here. It's in a beautiful location right on Lake Michigamme with boats to rent (or bring your own). There is also fishing and swimming in the warm lake water. Big rigs? No problem. There is 50 Amp service, good wifi, and many sites with open sky for satellite. If you are looking for a traditional peaceful camping week, without chaos, this is a great place for you. Bring a book to read, and relax and recharge.

I had a reservation for the 18th of the month and had to same day cancel. We could not make the drive. Therefore, I had to pay the full $60 daily fee (no discount), as I called to cancel the same day. Fine. I can understand. Then, I finally arrived the next day, on the 19th. Instead of giving me a credit or partial credit, I had to pay the full fee for the 19th, as well. I am not happy about that.... As far as the campground: it is basically a flat field, with a few trees, lots of highway noise, and minimal amentities. It is okay as a base, or overnight stay, but that's about it. The internet is strong, and satellite reception is easy. I don't sense pride of ownership here. It is very spartan. In sum, I would rank this campground very low, versus the many other KOA's I have visited.

This is a relatively big busy park in the summer. Most use this as a base for Cedar Point. There is allot to offer..but you are parked close together. There is a permanent section, that looks to be run down. Unfortunately, because of the size of my 45 foot RV, I had to park facing the permanent section.

This place is a 10. There really isn't anything that is missing...a great extremely well stocked camp store, 2 pools, a modestly priced restaurant, helpful and plentiful staff, and transportation via train and tour bus from the campground to all over Washington DC. And, it's the closest campground to DC.

Overall, I would describe this campground as a community of 700 permanent residents with a few, largely ignored, visitors. The campground is dumpy, as you would expect, with a lot of residential stuff smashed in to RV sized lots. The staff is unfriendly, unwelcoming, and rude. All in all, depressing. I gave it a 6 versus 5, because our lot was big and roomy, and there is a free, par 3, 9 hole, golf course that can be used. We will not return.

This is a nearly perfect campground in a beautiful part of Pennsylvania. It is tightly controlled, but very clean and friendly. The cable is free, as is the Internet. Both are extremely strong...the cable has a hundred or so channels. Knoebels Amusement Park is 1.5 miles down the road. The ice cream store across the street has the best quality I have experienced, nearly anywhere. The only negatives are a small pool and office with limited supplies, due to size. It's quiet for adults and with Knoebels so close, a dream for kids.

This is a nice KOA in a very busy section of the US. The positive is that it succeeds in giving you a tranquil spot is the middle of chaos. There is nothing spectacular or horrible about this well run park. It has a nice pool, good Internet and fairly roomy spots, depending on which one you get. It has both wooded and open sites. We would return.

A terrific campground! They do it right. The people are super friendly and welcoming. My teenage boys and daughter said it was one of their best camping trips ever. You have the ocean, a giant pool, basketball courts, fishing, food courts, a general store and golf cart rental. The preferred method of transportation in the park is a golf cart. The sites and cottages are very we'll kept. This is the best park in the area. We will return.

This is a campground that wins by location, only. It is only 1/4 mile from Lake Michigan, the Holland State Park, and the Holland Channel. It has a nice pool and a nice recreation area, with an indoor game and TV room for guests to use. The hosts, especially the women, are rude. Apparently they don't care, because they assume, that if I'm not there someone else will be. The campground is not big rig friendly. I have heard of numerous accidents and damage to trailers and RV, but nothing changes. They do not escort you to your spot. I have a 45 foot RV. They sent me down an impassable road to an extremely tight RV spot. There was no way I could have made the narrow corner that they sent me toward. The spot I was assigned was so tight that the nose of my RV hung out into the road. When I told them how ridiculously tight my spot was, the lady at the front desk told me I was fine and not to worry about it. It took 5 campers to help the guest across from me park without damaging my RV. So, over the weekend, as each car and camper and kid on a wobbly bicycle went by I worried that they would run into my unit. The campground is a non alcohol campground, but I am sure that drinking goes on, hidden. They charge 5 dollars a person, per day, over 4. I can honestly say that not one nice word was said to me by the staff in the general store, during my 5 or more visits there. In fact I was made to feel as though I was an unwanted interruption. We will not return.

This is one of the finest high end RV resorts we have visited. We had a beautiful spot next to a pond and a fountain. The lots are spaced widely apart with wildflowers in between. All the lots are paved with ample room for your RV, car, chairs, grill, and tow dolly. And, the people there are so very kind and welcoming. Your are midway between the Platt River, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, and charming Glenn Arbor. If you are looking for a quiet and pristine vacation spot, this is a terrific option for you.

This campground has always had great potential, a under new ownership this year, it has achieved it. This is a destination campground. There is so much to do, aside from the many planned events. There are 2 pools, go carts, basketball courts, arcades, mini golf and more. It is very kid and family friendly. The WiFi is strong, as is the water pressure. It is in a beautiful setting, under tall pines, but there are open spaces as well. It has a northern Michigan campground feel, without being so far north. It's great to see this campground living up to it's potential.

This is a nice and clean traditional campground. The positives are this KOA has beautiful mature trees, a tennis court, a basketball court, a nice swimming pool, a fishing pond, a playground, a jumping pillow, and nice people at the desk. It has good WiFi and the best cable reception I have ever seen at a campground. The negatives are no satellite reception because of the trees, the closest town is 6 miles away, and there is a little road noise. The positives out weigh the negatives at this campground.

There is not much to offer in quality RV parks in the Daytona Beach area. This is the best one I have found. It has a fantastic pool, strong Internet (fee-based) basketball court, shuffleboard, tennis court and more. I parked on a cement pad in the first circle around the club house. The staff is nice and helpful. Don't let the negative reviews keep you away, because this is the best park in the area.

Using my rating system of possible 4 for "view", 3 for "facilities", 3 for "location", and 1 for "staff friendliness", I give this park a 7. The campground is under a beautiful canapé of trees, so satellite use is unlikely. They do have decent cable, however. The WiFi was practically useless from our sight. The streets are dirt, so dust is a problem. On the other hand, I love parking on grass rather than dirt, and I was able to do that here. The main positive is the owners were wonderful. I could tell they really care about their park. They asked if we were happy several times. I would stay here again.
