This is a beautiful park along the Meramac River. However, it is a long way in off of 44 on a winding hilly 2-lane road. The park is very poorly marked--could use a few more signs. Good thing we arrived during daylight. A lot of construction on the road approaching the park. Once you find the park, it is another 3 miles into the campground. Watch for low hanging branches in the campground. We stayed in a full hookup back-in site along the river which was approaching the point where they evacuate the campground. Thankfully, it did not rise during our 2-day stay. The campground is large and has some pull-thru sites which we did not realize until we took a walk around. They warn about bears but sightings are rare. Bring a lot of bug spray--mosquitoes are thick. Free wifi worked great, but there were not many people in the park. I have a feeling that wifi wouldn't work so well if the park had more campers.

We stayed at Lakeside for 10 days. It is a beautiful RV resort--all sites are either on the lake or across from it. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring and is well lit. All concrete sites, patios, and roads. Even with all the rain we had our site stayed dry. Very clean and well kept. Good security. Very nice people in office. 5 mph speed limit enforced. Very dog friendly and has a dog park. Nice pool, although it was closed for the season when we were here. Fishing is allowed in the lake--no license required. Lake has a walking path around part of it. There is a nice laundry room, game room, lounge, and meeting room. This park is about an hour and 5 minutes outside of New Orleans (if there are no traffic delays which is rare). About 20 minutes from Baton Rouge. Closest Walmart is 15 minutes away. We would definitely stay here again. Rate is daily rate including Good Sam discount--rate shown does not include taxes which run about $4/day. They do offer reduced weekly and monthly rates.

This campground is a gem--beautiful sites with concrete pads and patios. Some have full hookups. Close to Des Moines. I noticed another reviewer said to be careful of the low hanging branches on Walnut Woods Drive, but they must have been trimmed because we did not have a problem. I would recommend this campground highly to anyone. Very big rig friendly.

This is a beautiful campground right on the Rock Creek, which looks more like a river. However, there is not a level site in the entire campground. All sites are grass and very soft ground. This is not a campground for motorhomes or even larger fifth wheels. We stayed one night, had blocks under our jacks, and by morning the blocks had sunk in the ground 8 - 12" and we had to dig our jacks out. I would not recommend this campground to anyone with a larger RV. I rated this campground the way I did because of the unlevel sites and very soft ground.

We stayed here for a night in transit on the way south and then for another night on our return only because it is so convenient and close to 75. We were given a site both times in the pull-throughs up front. Sites are gravel and very level with grass patches in between. WiFi worked great both times. Cable was snowy one night and did not work at all the other. It is fairly quiet for being so close to the highway. Pretty fishing pond. This campground is large but it seems only one section is used for short stay campers and the other two sections for permanent residents. No pool and the nightly fee is very high given few amenities.

We have stayed at this park several times. Great location near 75, restaurants and stores. However, the park seems to have gone downhill. Sites are very tired looking. So are utilities. Cables for TV are in a sorry state and laying all over the ground. Very poor water pressure. Many rules. And worst of all is the noxious odor in certain areas we can only assume is coming from a problem with septic. They also allow the public in to use the facilities from the end of April onward which necessitates people staying here to wear a hospital-type bracelet for their entire stay. We would expect better given the rate.

This is a beautiful campground located right on the dunes of Lake Michigan in the town of Pentwater. A very short walk to the beach and long concrete pier. Great for biking as well. Very clean well-kept beach--water is clear. Store located on beach for snacks/ice cream. All sites are blacktopped. Only problem is they are a bit difficult to back into, but everyone seems to manage. Town is about 3-block walk and has restaurants and shops. We were very impressed and will camp here again.

We have camped here 3 times in the last year because of this campground's location, not the campground itself. Pros are it is close to South Haven, many pull-thru sites, and a nice pool; cons are it is overpriced for the kind of campground it is, roads are not paved and are very dusty, and owners charge extra for everything. This campground only opened a couple years ago and is situated in a former blueberry field--therefore no trees, no shade. Mosquitoes are terrible, so bad that we ended up sitting inside after dark.
