Cable TV here is atrocious! It's like being back in the 1970s. The lineup is 60 channels and it's shown in Analog (not digital). Better picture from the antenna on my roof pulling in digital from Eugene! Analog signal on my 42" TV is very very ugly. What's wrong with these folks? Wi-Fi is pretty pathetic too. Very slow - probably has a governor on it. Streaming Netflix was very frustrating. Security gate with code. Basically a huge concrete parking lot.

The only thing that keeps me from giving this park a 1 rating is that the owner was pleasant. The park is extremely small, sites are tight and not suited for Big Rigs -- though a skilled driver can pull it off. The restrooms were filthy -- no other way to put it. Mold, mildew, and just plain dirty. Less than 75 yards from train tracks with freight trains running all night. Our concrete site pad was heaved and broken which made getting level a challenge. Picnic table had a 18" hole burned in the top of it so it was unusable. WiFi signal was too weak to even upload a simple email. Good Sam rating of 6/9.5*/9 is way way way off track. Avoid this place at all costs.

First-class RV park with big rig amenities including some of the fastest Wi-Fi I've encountered on the road. You must be self-contained, as there is no shower house. The sites are beautifully landscaped and include a patio/apron with wrought-iron table/chairs (a very nice touch). There's a covered pavilion w/gas grill that's available for use by RV Park guests. It's near the fire circle & horseshoe pits. The park is golf-side so just a few steps to the 1st tee, Pro Shop and Clubhouse Grill. The course was in excellent shape and very playable. The grill, surprisingly, makes one of the best pizzas anywhere. The fish fry on Friday was also excellent. We didn't go in any of the rooms, but the lodging/hotel looked nice. We did take the Elk View Carriage Ride that included dinner & wine tasting. This is the resort's "signature" event & it was well worth the expense. Dinner at a cabin in the woods is cooked on old wood stoves & is delicious. Service was impeccable and the owner's made us feel like we were the most important guests they'd ever entertained. The carriage that took us out to the cabin was pulled by Belgian horses that were as majestic as the elk we saw on the way. This is not a resort for anyone looking for "daycare" for young children. Although there is a small playground, the only other activity that might be suitable for children is river tubing--though they do have some very nice bikes for rent. We stayed at Thunder Bay Resort because it was affordable and gave us a central location for places we wanted to see in the area. It's only 20 or so miles to Lake Huron where we visited the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center. Admission to the Heritage Center is free!! The glass-bottomed boat tour of the shipwrecks was a big hit with everyone in our group & we were close enough to make Machinaw Island a day trip.

This is a great little park! The owner and his crew went out of their way to take good care of us while we were there for two months. The laundry and restrooms are brand-new. Nice little pond with fishing. This place is much nicer than the big RV park out on the highway (one of those parking-lot-style places). Big, grassy sites with plenty of room to maneuver. Excellent Wi-Fi-better than any other park in the area.

This is a great place to stay in NE Michigan. The RV park is small, clean, and well taken care of. No showerhouse, but that's not a problem for most of us RVers. We're big golfers and they have a beautiful course - with very reasonable rates. The Clubhouse is just pitching wedge away from the RV park, so we could easily walk back and forth. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the Clubhouse Grill so I hardly had to cook while we were there. Best of all, the Carriage Ride to see the Elk and have dinner at the remote cabin was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We saw elk in velvet and new babies with their moms. The food was spectacular - exceeded only by the service and personal attention. Don't miss this place.

Discovered this park by using the interactive tourist info kiosk at a highway rest area. Nice little park. Easy in/out. Large concrete pads. Very green lawns. Nice restroom with showers and plenty of hot water. Staff was very friendly.

Very nice. Clean. Scenic. Right off the I-5 exit in Rogue River (Exit 48).
