Rate is with Good Sam discount and off season. It had been raining so we stayed in the grassy section for the first time, much less muddy than the wooded section where we normally stay. The grassy section has pull throughs with easy in/out for an overnight stay without unhooking the toad. Still a quiet campground with a friendly staff. It was too wet to use the great path that circles the lake.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful campground on the canal that runs between Houghton and Hancock. This is our 2nd visit and we will return. Good utilities although with a class A if you want to face the water the utilities have to be crossed under the unit so bring extensions. The Internet is weak at times. There is not a 7 night limit. We were here for a month last year and 2 weeks this year. But, reservations are important. Next year they will move the opening date (and day to start making reservations) from May 1 to May 15.

Beautiful location with a great view of Lake Michigan and fairly close to Big Spring State Park. If there were sewer hookups, the rating would be a 10. We stay here whenever passing through the area just for the view. There are several videos available in the office and a book exchange. Very nice owner.

Date of Stay:

One of the better RV Parks we have stayed in with friendly lot owners. The campground owner is also very friendly with first hand knowledge of things to see and do in the area. Lots of social gatherings available with no hard sell trying to get us to buy a lot, which was very nice. Utilities were great, but no cable since it isn't available in the area. A few TV stations were available by antenna. Good location to see the area. Great layout with the ownership park separated from the campground.

Date of Stay:

The campground was $29 per night, but we had to pay a MI state park entrance fee of $29 for the RV and $6 for the Jeep. The RV fee has to be paid once a year and the Jeep fee was just for this campground. We wanted to be within biking distance of a festival in Traverse City or the entrance fees would have been enough to send us to another campground. This park was very crowded with no clear dividers between sites. The location, on the bike path and across the road from the lake, is the only thing that makes this campground attractive.

Date of Stay:

Large KOA with all the amenities including a jumping thingy, game room, pancake breakfast, etc., with nice hosts and workers. Utilities were good and the location is ok with a short drive to town or a longer drive to Wal-Mart.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground on a rails to trails bike path that goes into town one way or to a lake and beyond the other direction. Good utilities. Nice hosts.

Date of Stay:

Easy entrance and exit, good utilities, level sites and walking distance to a brewery and a movie theater. Very nice campground.

Date of Stay:

Great campground! Lots of trees and shade with easy access to a bike/hike trail and close to Duluth by auto. The manager provided the best set of directions I have ever received over the phone and was very nice when we arrived. We will stay here again. Good antenna TV reception.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here to try the other campground in town after staying at the other one a few weeks ago. This is the better of the two: with wider, more level sites. Easy walk into town from the campground.

Date of Stay:

Campground has gravel sites, good utilities but no cable and no stations available on the antenna. It is within walking distance of town if you are in shape and don't mind a short walk along the roadside with no sidewalk. Owners and hosts are very friendly and helpful.

Date of Stay:

Steep road going down to the sites near the river and the sites by the road (don't have to go down the hill) didn't look very inviting. The pull through sites by the river are a little tight (width and height) and aren't on the river. The river front sites are all back in and wider. Great tent sites are available, but we were disappointed in the other sites. The owner is very nice and is working to improve the sites, so next year may be a different experience.

Date of Stay:

The worst campground we have ever stayed in, and I cannot think of a single positive thing to say about our stay. Looked like the owner has doubled the number of sites by putting two sites where there used to be one site making it very crowded. We were next to another class A, and we couldn't both put out the small window awnings because they would touch; didn't even try the large awning. We came back from a long day trip to find that someone had turned our breaker off (it wasn't tripped) leaving us with a very hot RV. We talked to the owner who showed no concern whatsoever about the incident. The previous day the main breaker had tripped on our road due to overloading so we can only suspect that our breaker was turned off while we were gone to conserve power for the rest of the row. Thank goodness we didn't have a pet.

Rate is with the weekly discount. Good Wi-Fi, cable; no problems with hookups. Long gravel sites that are easy to park in and leave. Do not follow GPS in if it tells you to turn onto Miller Lane, instead watch for campground signs. Within biking and long walking distance to Livingston. Lots to do in the area including Yellowstone NP, scenic drives, exploring Livingston, rafting the Yellowstone.

Date of Stay:

Great campground with very friendly and helpful owners who know the area well. Verizon air card worked well, and the campground wi-fi worked sporadically. Fairly level spots, no problems with utilities. Could pick up Billings TV by antenna, no cable. Walked into town (0.9mi to hardware store and Atlas Bar with the stuffed animals).
