Old Orchard Campground, Oscoda, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a GREAT BIG campground. Big sites and lots of them. We stayed in the first come first served sites. There is a problem with water and electric service. We went there expecting a normal hookup arrangement but that is not the case. The water and electrical outlets are greatly spaced out in sometimes opposite sides of the sites. A word of warning, have at LEAST 25 ft.extentions for both lines, and then you could still have to jockey your camper on the site. As a previous poster mentioned, there is a charge for the HOT showers,$.50/ token, but for the price we paid to stay there, acceptable. I got by with one but my wife and daughter needed two. It rained off and on when we were there, creating problems with the sandy dirt (tracking onto awning carpet,and the shower/bath houses). We got there on a Wednesday and had a good choice of sites, by Friday night, pickings were slim. Now for the good news. There are a good amount of things to do in the area for a long weekend. If ever in the area again I would not hesitate to camp here. We camped at Old Orchard Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Very few ameneties. Good place to spend a few quiet nights or if you like to fish inland lakes. Hilly and treed mostly grassy lots. Some sunny, some shady. Worth the money. That's about all I can say. We camped at Hayes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Maumee Bay State Park, Oregon, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2008 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of favorite places to grab a quick weekend away from home. Only about 10 miles from our doorstep. The sites are large by campground standards, and whomever designed this campground really knew what they were doing. The sites are grassy and wide with paved and level parking areas, lined along drives that radiate in a curve from a center main drive that runs roughly through the center of the campground. Each site gives you as much privacy as can be expected. The one drawback is that there are only electric hookups. Not a problem for a weekend trip but a longer stay could be inconvenient, I'm not sure if they have a honey dipper service allowed in the park or not. There are water spigots and dishwater dumping recepticles scattered along each loop. The shower/bath houses have always been clean every time we have been there.It has a camp store that can supply the forgotten essentails, or there are many diffent stores available within 5 miles of the campground. The actual park, of which the campground is about 1/10 of the space, has bike trails and a beach,which is a long way,about 1/4- 1/2 mile, from the campground,a nature center and 3 mile long board walk through the nature preserve. We camped at Maumee Bay State Park in a Tent Trailer.
