This is a beautiful campground and is definitely one of the nicest we have stayed in. The entire campground is immaculate: very clean, neat, and with beautiful flowers and trees. The people are very friendly, and there is plenty to do on days when you don't have plans to go somewhere. Our kids enjoyed the playground and had a big enough area near our campsite to fly their kites. There is also a volleyball court, basketball court, and doggie playground. The pool and hot tub looked nice, although we didn't use them. The laundry facility was very clean and convenient. The cafe has great food and ice cream. The cement pads are nice for parking your RV, and then there is grass to sit around the campfire. The sites are definitely closer together than they are at most of the State Parks, but they are still very nice, and you have full hook-ups and wonderful amenities that you don't get at the State Parks. There's so much to do in this area, this is a perfect location. We came up for the Mackinac Bridge Walk over Labor Day, so rates were a little higher, but definitely worth it.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. The sites are large and separated by plenty of trees, so you don't feel too close to your neighbors. It is extremely peaceful and beautiful. The park rangers were very friendly. You can walk to Lake Michigan, and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes is just a short drive North. Our original reservation was for one night, but we liked it so much that we stayed an extra night. We will definitely camp here again. The $24 fee included an additional $5 for using the electricity.

My sister reserved this campground for a large family camping weekend. It seems to be an older campground, but overall, we had a good experience here. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kids enjoyed the playground and fun cycles. The fun cycles were $2.00 for a half hour, but they were free on Sunday. Our site was level and shaded, which was nice. My parents had a cabin, which was also nice. The main problem we encountered was that one of the sites we had reserved was right next to the road that led to the rustic section of the campground. That site ended up being only half a site because we couldn't put anything in or near the roadway. Do not reserve sites 31/32 for this reason. Our motorhome is 31' and I don't think a larger vehicle would have been able to maneuver through the campground. Lake Michigan is a short drive from the campground.

Overall, this is a nice place to stay. When we first arrived, our reservation was for a site that had a fire pit full of trash. The employee at the ranger station apologized and said that was unusual, then moved us to a different site. The new site was much nicer. We recommend reserving a site farther into the park, not right near the entrance. There is only one sewer drain at the sanitation station, so at check-out time you have to wait in line. We like this State Park, though, and it's just a short walk down a foot path to the lake. The lake is great for swimming because it's shallow so far out. The campground hosts were very friendly. We have camped here 3 years in a row and will probably camp here many times in the future.

We absolutely loved this State Park. You don't get full hook-ups at most of the State Parks, but the sanitation station was easily accessible and we did have electricity. We had one of the larger sites, which gave us plenty of room for our RV, and we had woods behind us. There were no trees in between our sites to separate us from the people next to us, but that wasn't a problem for us. The volunteer hosts were extremely friendly. The beach is easy to get to, and you just can't beat Lake Michigan. We walked to the beach one day and rode our bikes to the public picnic area another day. Our boys are already begging to go back!

We stayed at this campground on our way from Arizona to Michigan. Most of the campgrounds in this area weren't open yet because it was too early in the season, so our options were limited. We pulled in after dark, and it was very difficult to find our site. Once we got there, the site wasn't very level. The highway and train noise was pretty steady throughout the night. There was no cable. We felt for the price we paid, we didn't get our money's worth. Will find a different place to stay next time.

This was a nice KOA with easy access from I-40. Our site was fairly level, and the park wasn't very crowded. There was a playground for the kids and a cafe that served breakfast and dinner. There was some noise from the traffic, but it did not keep us awake at night. The staff were very friendly. Cable and Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay here again if traveling through the area.

This was a nice, quiet campground, and the staff were very friendly. Our only concern was just that the water hookup was very close to the sewer hookup. We thought that was a little unusual. It was a nice RV park and we will stay there again if we are in the area.

What a nice place to stay! This campground is run by wonderful, friendly people who we enjoyed meeting. Our kids were thrilled with the playground and mini golf, which were a nice treat for them after spending 8 1/2 hours on the road. The sites are roomy and level with picnic tables. The view of the mountains all around is beautiful. They even have a Kafe that serves dinner and breakfast, and they will deliver it right to your site. I was surprised that the price was so reasonable compared to some other KOA's we have stayed in. This KOA doesn't charge extra for kids under the age of 12. It definitely goes on our favorites list and we will stay here again!

This is a nice RV park, and the managers were extremely friendly. It's a very nice community, and we felt warmly welcomed. Our site was a good sized site, but several were smaller and quite close together. It really is walking distance to several restaurants, so if you aren't towing a car behind you, that is nice. We enjoyed our overnight stay here.

Our site was right on the bay with a nice view. The site was level enough that we didn't need to use our leveling blocks. The sites are all cement pads. The campground was extremely crowded, and the RV's are pretty close together, so if you want to spend time outside at the picnic table, this isn't the best place for that. There are a lot of oil workers who stay here long-term. Also, if you're arriving after the office closes, you might want to call ahead. We never would have found our campsite if we hadn't called the manager. She was extremely friendly and helpful, though. It is new to KOA, and they are making improvements.

This is one of the nicest KOA campgrounds we have stayed in. The site was perfectly level, no need for blocking up any of the wheels. Water pressure was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. In the morning there was a newspaper waiting for us outside our RV door. They even had a free continental breakfast! Will definitely stay here again.

This campground was fine for an overnight stay, especially if you only need power and water. Our site didn't even have full hook-ups. We definitely would not recommend it for more than an overnight. It's not much more than a parking lot in the middle of the city.

This campground was nice overall, but their paved roads are in great need of repair. The playground for the kids was also fairly small. There aren't many options in the area, though, so we were grateful to find a KOA here. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We have stayed in this KOA twice, and we love it. The view is beautiful; in the daytime you can see the mountains, and at night you can look down over the city lights. Our kids loved the playground, the staff were friendly, and the sites are very well maintained. We definitely recommend this campground.
