This place is a jewell in the national park service. I recommend that everybody stays here for a extended vacation. Get here early in the morning for the 7am "lotto" so you can get a spot in the rustic area or in the electric area. if you walk over the hill toward the highway, you can tube down the platte river (20 -25 minutes) and take a short walk back (5 minutes )and end up next to the riverview store. many natural attractions are local, grocery stores in frankfurt, or honor, crystal lake and it's local towns are nearby, and Traverse City is about 33 miles away if you need anything. well worth going to and staying for a while

Rockcrusher was a really nice park before elite resorts got ahold of it. Elite resorts has reduced the amenities, treated the campers with little or no respect, and has let the place go by not cutting the lawns during the summer months and reducing maintenance to a bare minimum. Living at Rockcrusher for many winters was nice, it was nice to go back to and see your old rv "family" year after year. But the changes and the way that elite resorts does business and treats it's guests, we will not go back there. Under the rockcrusher ownership it was a great "hidden secret" among campers, but with the new ownership demanding payment for the next year's stay in full, with no refunds and no exceptions, the increase of 3 and six month rates, (from 435 to 750 a month, now reduced to i believe approx 500 a month, partly due to the economy and the fuel crisis), and the reduction of all the amenities like trash pickup, mail station, bathhouse hours, diminished street lighting, and not having a pool or hot tub for almost 2 months in the 2007-2008 season. I have found new places to spend my hard earned dollars, as well as a couple of hundred of other prior rockcrusher winter regulars that we have seen year after year.
