Date of Stay:

The staff was very accommodating when we found our sites were muddy due to a recent rain. They were able to find us another site though we were not able to camp next to friends we had also reserved spots for. Overall, from reviewing other comments on this campground, it appears this place is trying to better itself. The area appears to be well taken care of but more improvements could be done such as better site layout, grass cutting and overall landscaping to drain water from some sites. The playground is good but it appears that more could be added to make it a little more attractive for the kids. Some of the year-round or seasonal campers were somewhat in dis-repair making the campground less appealing. Because of ash borer concerns, you must purchase firewood from the campground. Be prepared to pay as a small supply of quick burning firewood (dry pine) costs $5.00 a bundle and does not last long. Would I come back again? Maybe. I think this would be a great spot in the fall but over the summer, especially with 3 young children, I'd rather be at another campground that offers more activities for children.

Though the sites are not as large, I found this campground to be well maintained and staffed. We found that the campground was quiet at night while we were there. However, other than renting a paddle boat or a canoe, there were not a lot of things for younger children to do other than a small playground across the road and a basketball hoop. Otherwise, it is very close to the Michigan Adventure Amusement Park and a good place to relax after a long day of rollercoasters and water rides.

Date of Stay:

This campground is geared for the family. Having 3 young children, many activities were provided to keep them entertained. The sites are fairly well-sized (some are smaller than others) and the staff is always available and courteous. Unfortunately, there is no full hook-up but a honey wagon service is available. The park is very clean and the facilities appear to be well taken care of.
