We arrived on a very hot day and was glad to get a nice long pull through site with 50amp hookups so we could use both air conditioners. The owners were very nice and friendly and led us to our side via a golf cart. They checked back to make sure we were getting along okay and then came back to warn us of approaching storms. Very considerate. The sites in the transient area have no trees, barely any grass between sites and are very close together but they placed rigs every other site while we were there. I'm not sure you could open your awning if each site was full! The utilities worked fine and it was a nice stopover campground. It's an older quaint family campground with a lot of seasonal sites in the wooded area. It makes a good stopover campground while traveling. The rate reflects a Good Sam and/or AAA discount.

What a surprise to find such a nice city campground! There is a nice choice of back-in or pull-through sites but all are long enough for the largest rigs and a vehicle. Each site was paved with ample grassy area between each site. Picnic table provided at each site. We enjoyed riding our bikes on the trails through the wildflowers and trees. The park is very close to lots of shopping and restaurants but you feel like you're in a very isolated area in the campground as it's so quiet. Once in a while we'd hear a train in the distance but we enjoy that so it didn't bother us. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We had to stay somewhere over the Labor Day holiday since we were traveling and this campground is where we made reservations in advance -- which is always suggested anywhere for Labor Day! The campground was packed as expected with lots of activity. People were having fun but quieted down after dark with no problems. The boats on the lake were very noisy and irritating with the constant roaring of the engines until well after dark. We were told there's no speed limit on the lake so they race all the time. The site we reserved had 50amp electric, but was one of the most unlevel sites we've ever had. There were a lot of muddy areas next to the narrow roads. Many sites would be a challenge to back into with larger rigs. Water faucets are few and far between in this campground! We went down to near the dump station to use the fresh water pump there to fill our tank. There appeared to be only one faucet per each of the four loops in the entire campground! It's an okay campground but not nearly as nice as one usually finds in a Corps Of Engineers facility.

This was our second stay in this beautiful park in the last four years and it was just a nice as we remembered from the first time. This is a very nice campground. It is not an RV Resort though. You fill your fresh water tank at one of the many faucets available in each loop and dump your tanks at the dump station when you leave. The electric worked great and we enjoyed the huge grass site and the privacy afforded by the wonderful landscaping between each site. Our 35' Fifth Wheel and truck fit in our site easily. You can see the length of each site listed on the web site when you reserve a site so pay attention to that if you have a concern. We enjoyed multiple rides on the very nice bike trails and the quiet serenity of the campground. We will definitely return here.

Nice Corps campground in a pretty location. Sites are long and well spaced. We had full hookups in our site (#18) and a great view of the lake. Price is with our senior pass. You just can't beat Corps of Engineers campgrounds for quality and value.

We've stayed here three times and although it's a pretty campground, getting there is challenging. The road from Black Rock to Powhaten and then on to the park is narrow, winding and rough. The roads within the park are also fairly narrow. The sites are well spaced and most are long enough for almost any rig. The concrete pads are in rough condition and few of them are very level but each site has a fire ring, table and grill. Our surge protector system disconnected us a couple of times, first time in a long time, so their 50 amp service in the site (#81) we were in had a problem. The views from the sites in the E loop of the lake are great and I'm sure this is a nice place to be in the summer.

This is mostly a seasonal site campground. Many campers here with permanent decks, porches, etc. Large activity area for games. Fire pits and picnic tables. Off the road next to farm fields. Appears to be an older campground, but they've done some repaving work to the office area and it looks nice. We had a large but uneven site for the night. Water and 30amp electric only. It was a handy over night stop that was quiet.

Not too far off Hwy 13 and easily found. Mostly seasonal sites here but we found an empty pull through with full hookups to use for one night. There was nobody in the office -- fill out an envelope and put your money in it in a box. The campground appears to be fairly well maintained. It was a handy stop.

Date of Stay:

The sites are all pull through but fairly tightly spaced and narrow. The concrete pads need resurfacing and the park needs some general maintenance but the price was right for full hookups and a safe place to stay right off the Interstate.

Nice new campground with full hookups and a lot of very large pull through sites. The owner and the host were very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with a landing foot that needed welding and the host took care of it for us at no charge! The weld he did was better than the original! Nice bicycle trail right across the highway from the campground. Nearby shopping, etc. Great location for golf, fishing, or just relaxing! We highly recommend this campground!

Pretty clean campground right on the shores of Lake Superior. We had site #10 which backed up to the lake which spectacular views. We had a 50 amp and water hookup, picnic table and large fire pit. The employees were very friendly and helpful. They have good security here. We had dinner one night in the casino/hotel and it was excellent! Only 3 miles from downtown Bayfield where the cruises to the Apostle Islands depart. Lots of nice shops and places to eat. Also a ferry to Madeline Island is available. The Apostle Island National Lakeshore Visitor's Center is downtown and interesting as is a maritime museum and a City of Bayfield Museum which is very well done. We would stay here again if in the area.

This campground is right on the shore of Lake Superior, so what more could you want? We had a good 50amp electric hookup and water, a very large site which was grass and flat. We weren't on the water, but had a great view. The dump station was easy to get it and out and worked just fine. There is some highway noise, but it's not bad. This is a very handy location for taking the "Pictured Rocks" cruises and the "Glass Bottom Boat Shipwreck Tours". There's also a ferry to Grand Island and an easy drive to views along the Pictured Rocks shoreline.

We stayed in the Lower Falls campground and had a nice big site which was grass and flat. We had a fire pit and a picnic table. A firewood vendor drives through the campground every day selling firewood. Lots to see and do here. Hiking trails, Upper and Lower Falls (Lower Falls are a short walk from the campground) and only 20 miles from Whitefish Point and the Shipwreck Museum which is highly recommended! The Upper Falls area has an excellent restaurant, "Brewery and Pub". Their beer was good. The food and service was excellent! We had minimal Verizon service, but by using a booster antenna it was okay. No television watching here, but star watching is excellent!

This is a very pretty campground! Lots of trees and shade and a short easy walk to Lake Huron and a nice big swim beach. They also have two sand volleyball pits and one of the nicest playgrounds we've seen in a state park. No water hookups, so fill up your tank from the potable water faucets at the dump station. We were in site #7 and it was large and flat. The upper level of the campground seemed to be cramped and tight. Each site has a big fire pit, picnic table and a park bench. Great bicycle trail runs from Rogers City to the 40 Mile Lighthouse right outside the campground. Rogers City is only 2.5 miles away and has all kinds of shopping and a couple of nice places to eat. Their marina is very nice as is their city park which is next to the marina. This campground is due for an upgrade soon according to a brochure they gave us. They plan full hookups at some point. They warned us that we might lose power due to the old electrical system, but it worked fine over a busy Labor Day weekend. Granted it was cool so not many were using a/c. As a non-resident we bought a vehicle window sticker for $30.50 which we used for 13 nights at various MI state parks. Without the pass the rate is $8.50 per night for non-resident!

This is a pretty area right on Lake Huron. The Tawas Lighthouse and gift shop is easy bicycle riding distance from the campground. Camp sites are large but there appears to be no rules for how you use your site. RVs are parked all over the place and in every direction, sometimes very close to the road making it difficult to navigate. Sites have 30amp electric only and the water faucets placed here and there in the campground are the kind you have to hold on and a hose cannot be connected to them. You must fill your water tank at the check in office where they do provide a white water hose which is nice. The dump station is large and dump hoses are provided. The Lake Huron swim beach in the park is really nice with a nice walkway across the sand and food and drink sold on site. There are miles of bicycle trails both in and right outside the park. Lots of nice shopping and restaurants very close to the park in downtown East Tawas.
