Betsie River Camp Site, Frankfort, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2005 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this campground during the July 4 holiday. Before going, we tried to find other campers experiences. We found some general ones but nothing with any detail. We gave it a shot and were not impressed. Their web site implies a very friendly atmosphere but that's not what we found. The owners were only friendly when you were spending money in the store. If you saw them around the campground then there was nothing as much as a smile or a simple Hello. We had three campsites and one had to cancel when we were notified the camp ground only had 20 amp electrical service. My 70 year old father needed oxygen at night which required 30 amp connection. The owners would not refund the money even though we gave 3 day cancellation notice and then they rented out the site to other campers for the entire time. We had the pleasure of looking at a campsite that was getting double revenue for the campground. The owners only rationale was "that's what all the campgrounds do". Not much of an effort to ensure return business. Other notes - The dump station is extremely awkward and does not angle your camper correctly. A large share of the sites are cramped and the playground is tiny as the picture on the web site is very deceiving. One credit - The bathrooms were clean. If you go to this area, which is beautiful with lots of fishing opportunities, I would save this campground only as a last resort. We camped at Betsie River Camp Site in a Travel Trailer.
