We stayed here 20 years ago when, as we remember, the campground we more open. My, how much the trees have grown! We could not get satellite reception. But, this is a great campground for fishing (on-shore or boats) and other water sports. The campground has several parking areas for boat trailers. A very quiet campground and we will come again.

This campground is only 1 1/2 miles north of Chatthoochee, Florida. We stayed here two years ago. Didn't see a any Argentine ants but it is early in the season. However we did spread ant poison and kept our electric line and water hose off the ground. We love COE parks and try to stay at them frequently. Great sunsets, satellite and phone reception on our site #1.

What a great site we reserved, site 22. We were elevated above water-side sites where campers could anchor their boats near shore. Our site was very private but alas, no TV reception. As always this campground is typical of other great COE campgrounds.

Ditto previous comments. This was our first visit to Ochlockonee State Park. Very rustic and quiet, reminds us of our State Parks of old. We saw the white squirrels (not albinos) as well as grey ones. There are only 30-some campsites and the campground was filled up even in early April. We stayed on the handicap site-#23- and were able to get DirecTV satellite reception. The attendants were very friendly as well as all of the campers we spoke to. While here we drove the coastline to Eastport, a beautiful drive long the Gulf of Mexico. We had no problem negotiating around the trees in our 32' motor home. We will visit here again.

We stayed here before and on "our" same site overlooking the COE locks. Campground is immaculate in all respects, the only drawback is lack of sewers, typical of most Corps parks. Will definitely come again. If one would look for the town of Ortona on a map I doubt they'd ever find this park. It should be listed under the town of "LaBelle", 8 miles to the west, or about 20 miles west of Clewiston. Don't think the town of Ortona exists.

There were no signs at our (northbound) exit for this County Park. We had to rely on our GPS which isn't always correct. When we did arrive near the end of Meinert Road, there was a sign for us to turn right into the campground. We noticed most campsites were occupied by fifth wheels and trailers, probably by seasonals for use during weekends. We stayed here mid-week and we were about the only people in the campground. This campground offers 67 campsites with water, electric and sewer hookups. It has a modern bathroom with showers and a sanitary dump station. Ice and firewood are offered for sale. All sites were well maintained and not trashy. We selected a grassy site with 30 amp service as most 50amp sites were taken. There are lots of trees but we were very lucky to get satellite service, although we frequently lost the signal. We had no service for our MYFI or our cell phone but the campground does have WIFI. We were disappointed that the camping area was about ¼ mile from Lake Michigan. The day use was at the end of the road at the beach. This campground was okay but a little out of our way for short stays, therefore we probably would not stay here again.

Agree with previous reviews. Rate is average for 3 nights on FHU pull-through site, for one night PA and 2 nights GS. We saved $30 over published daily rate. This is a very nice and well-kept campground. Sites are mostly open and sunny. There are no concrete pads, only grass but we had no problem with this. Several sites in rear of campground back-up to woods and are shady. There should be no problem with satellite reception on most sites. The campground has a very nice swimming pools with picnic pavilion next to it. We stayed here last year and will stay again when in the area.

The U.P.Fairgrounds webpage advertises 120 FHU sites, 250 W&E, plus other sites. We stayed on a very large full hookup site with 50 amp service. Sites were grass, level, and recently mowed. We had excellent utility service plus Verizon phone, MiFi and satellite reception. We did not use the restrooms which were quit a ways from us, but this was no problem as we use our motor home facilities. There are many other sites located all around the fairgrounds. None of the "sites" are well defined with boundaries. We had no problem with noise, such as trains, planes, etc. And importantly, few bugs, but it was windy. We stayed here a week over July 4th and definitely will return when in the area. (To access detailed camping information for the fairgrounds go to the Delta County website at www.upstatefair.org).

We agree with previous comments. Roads were gravel/dirt combination. Site pads were recently-graded dirt. Very dry and dusty. (Thankfully it didn't rain during our stay). It would have been better to let the grass grow to prevent dusty or muddy sites. As for restrooms, there are porta-potties in the campground, however the host told us there are showers/bathrooms available at the fairground; ask the host where. We did have good satellite and phone reception. The fairground is located about 7 miles south from picturesque downtown Traverse City. The fairground camping area is a good short-term stopover, provided it doesn't rain.

This is a relatively small campground. Sites are grass and level and is close to the Interstate and downtown Mackinaw City. Good stopover for one or more nights, especially considering the $20 price. We would stay here again. (Contrary to the previous review this campground is not on Lake Huron, but is about 1.75 miles away as the crow flies. And, the camp rate is $20, not $33).

I agree with former reviews. This was a first-class county park. We went over to the day-use park which was also very nice. It has a well maintained beach for sunning or for swimming in the lake. Fishing is also allowed in the lake. We stayed here for 4 nights on a pull-thru site with 50 amp electric. The only bad experience (not the fault of the campground) was tornado warnings for this area of Michigan. We definitely would stay here again!

We did not experience the problems the previous reviewers had. No barking dogs, no parties or excessive noise, cordial campground attendant ( led us to our site), and we had a level site with concrete "runners" for our tires and lastly, an excellent view of the lake out of our front window! We selected a water and electric site (50a) overlooking the lake. We had good Verizon cell service and MiFi (ours) and DirecTV satellite service. The park was well kept, no trashy campers and well maintained gravel roads-no potholes. We didn't use the restrooms or showers but found that the interiors could use a little painting around stalls and floors. The campground is well situated and close to downtown Bardstown and less than 2 miles from restaurants, groceries, etc. We most definitely will return here. Be aware there is not a sign in front of the campground but we were well aware that this was our destination because some RV's are visible from the road. Perhaps the other reviewers were unlucky in theirs experience or perhaps there has been a revelation in a cleanup campaign in the park; however, in any event we definitely will return and encourage others to be positive while making their decision in stopping in this campground. We extended our stay to 4 days.

We found this park from our Passport America book after deciding to take the back roads and not the freeways south. What a great find! Gracious hosts checked us in, told of us the sights to see in the quaint Swiss town of Berne. We settled on site 221, a full hookup site with 50 amp electric. Quite a large back-in site and very well cared for grass “carpet” adorning the area we were in. We overlooked corn fields, soon to be harvested. Behind us in a fairly large area were “seasonals”, mostly 5th wheels, trailers and motorhomes; did not see many “permanents”. We were surprised at how large the campground was. We happened to be here when the annual “small engine festival” was being held in the town of Portland, 12 miles south. The town of Berne is rich in Swiss history, and in the heart of Amish and Mennonite homesteads. We enjoyed driving through the countryside seeing the typical well-kept farms they are famous for. And, of course, the roadside vegetable stands. Downtown Berne has a very large Mennonite church just across the street from Muensterberg Plaza and Clock Tower. The square--a city block--has a unique Glockenspiel, a fountain playground for children, and soon to be finished and dedicated band shell. We were not in town to witness the Glockenspiel play, complete with costumed figures characters dancing. We plan on staying here next year on our trip north.

This was a great place to stay during our trip south. Many large sites, all on grass, with 50 amps and water. Rate reflects Passport America rate. Only 3 or 4 sites occupied while we were there but is most probably full during weekend festivities and fairs. We will stop here and use our Passport America again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for 2 nights. Ours was a full hookup site overlooking Lake Michigan. We could see the large ships carrying cargo passing through the Mackinaw Straits. A little pricey but worth it. We will stay here again.
