Very nice for a casino campground and reasonably priced. Paved roads and sites. Pull through sites are very long, designed to accommodate two RV's, when parked back-to-back. During our visit, the campground was not full and we used the entire pull-through site, as did others. Sites are not level and we needed a couple leveling blocks. There is a free shuttle to the casino, available on call. We walked less than 1/2 mile to the casino. Campers have access to the casino hotel's fitness room, indoor pool and hot tub. Pool area was highly chlorinated and we did not use. The 8' by 8' fitness room, connected to pool area and poorly ventilated, had 3 pieces of equipment: treadmill, bike and stepper. Free WiFi is available at the casino, but not in the campground.

Proud Lake is a Michigan State Campground. The staff was excellent, helpful and friendly even as we tried out 3 different sites. Sites are on grass and not level. Some are 30 amp and some are 50 amp. No water or sewer on site. Campground has nice bathhouse and the dump station/water fill station, with 3 lanes, was convenient. We enjoyed time spent on the grassy beach area on Proud Lake; kids were swimming in the lake. A private canoe/kayak rental company is on site. Beware of your directions: the Wixom Road address is the park headquarters about a mile away from the campground on Proud Lake Rec Road.

In almost 10 years of traveling with our motorhome, it's extremely rare for us to drive into a campground and then leave without staying overnight. This Cayman Landing campground was one of those rare occasions. The campground staff recommended that we choose one of the 13 full hook-up sites on the hill, available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Of the two sites that were suggested for our motorhome, neither was accessible. There were deep gullies at the site entrances and steep upgrades backing into the sites. While attempting to back into "the best" site, our front end bottomed out and cracked the front of the motorhome. The staff was unsympathetic to our situation and could offer no site to accommodate us. This campground should be avoided by anyone with a Class A RV.

Entrance sign proclaims "Older Persons Community". Most of the sites are permanently occupied with monthly rentals, either mobile home trailers or RVs. There are 18 short-term sites, fairly close together, nicely clustered around the pool and clubhouse area. Some utility hookups are awkwardly placed. Clubhouse is currently closed for construction. Pool was very nice and clean, set at 82 degrees. Pool closed for the season on Labor Day. Although close to major roads, the park was fairly quiet and the property is fenced. Nightly rate reflects Good Sam discount.

Nightly rate reflects Passport America discount as we paid $35 for 2 nights with full hookup, 30-amp site. Campground is on the banks of the pretty Salmon River. It was pleasant hearing the background rush of the water at night. Although their brochure advertises "Tube, swim or wade in river at your own risk", large signs are posted along the river stating "No swimming, no wading, no tubing". Sites are average size in a large well-mowed grassy field with scattered shade trees. Owners are not very friendly; campground is for sale.

We learned of Apple Island Resort from our Passport America directory. Given their $65 (+tax) nightly rate, we would have otherwise passed by. Our rating is based on value for the price. The resort itself is beautiful and well-maintained with a friendly, welcoming staff. The adjacent 9-hole Par 3 golf course at $15 (weekdays) was wonderful. The large pool was heated to a perfect temperature. Morning water aerobics was an excellent and entertaining workout with friendly people, all apparently seasonal residents. The poor Internet connection and lack of cable TV were disappointing. If we had stayed longer, we might have rented a boat from their marina for an outing on Lake Champlain.

We stayed for 3 nights at a Good Sam rate of $37.80/night for 2 people. The resort seems fully recovered from Hurricane Ike which devastated the island in September, 2008. The beach was very nice, with the beach access road located 400 feet west of the RV park entrance. We were able to drive our car and bike on the hard packed sand. The pool and spa water were quite cool. A couple junky looking "permanent" sites detracted from the RV park's appearance. We enjoyed the free continental breakfast with homemade waffles on Saturday morning; breakfast is also offered on Wednesdays.

The campground is very convenient to Route 10, but highway noise was minimal. Our $23.30 nightly rate reflects their website promotion whereby you pay for two nights at $35 each and get the third night free. We stayed for 3 nights. The free daily continental breakfast was the best we've had at any campground. The Texas shaped waffles were exceptional!

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Pontchartrain Landing in October. Our $29 rate was with Pass Port America discount. Their free shuttle runs 3 times a day to the French Quarter. That, combined with the daily rail pass for New Orleans streetcars, meant that we never had to unhook the towed car from the motor home. The campground appearance is lovely with well-maintained gravel roads, and lush tropical plantings including flowering oleander and hibiscus. The views outside the campground are less than ideal, surrounded by an industrial shipping and warehouse area. The pool area was very nice with outdoor bar serving beer and soda at night (but may have different hours during their busy season). The access road from the highway to the campground is rough pavement, so just take it slow.
