What a crazy set up! It's a lovely campground - lots of trees and grass but with strangely spaced sites. We had the only pull thru water/electric and it was no where near level - took 3 layers of legos and a piece of plywood. The utilities are on the wrong side and far away from the RV. We had to break out our new emergency water hose to have one long enough to go under the RV and reach the spigot. Power cord just made it after we pulled way up into the site. Surrounded by trees on the periphery of the campground, but open and sunny with a few trees in the campground. Most sites shaded. Other sites seem to have the same crazy set up as we do. Sites are not readily recognizable as it is mostly all grass. We had to make two loops around before we figured out where our site actually was - the utility poles, picnic tables, and fire rings are not necessarily and indicator. I hear train noises in the distance, no road noise, but there are just a few lights in the park so it should be good for sleeping. Staff is friendly and helpful. Park is very clean and well maintained. I would stay here again but in a different site.

We loved this park! The City of Houghton has really made it a lovely place to stay when visiting the area. All sites are back-in and we had a site right on the waterway. Each site has a covered table and a park bench sitting on a deck behind your RV. Our back window overlooked the deck and the wonderful views of the waterway and the town of Hancock on the other side. The bike/walkway along the water is lovely with freshly planted annuals and herbs and across the street from some incredibly homes. It is a mile and a half walk round trip from the RV park to the bridge. Yes, stopping at Roy's bakery is a must. Dan Kemp, the manager, was very helpful and friendly. We told him we were ancestor hunting and he directed us to people and places to do research. He's a Yooper and has written a great book that you can buy from him at a discounted price and get it autographed. The nearby day use park does not allow dogs so you have to walk your dog on the bike path along the water. Love this place and if it weren't so far from home (Nevada) would visit it often!

We were looking for an overnight place between Keiler, WI and Houghton, MI and found this campground on RVParkReviews. All the reviews were old, but decided to take a chance and call. It is a campground designed for small rigs and there were lots of them parked there for the summer - no people around as it was mid-week. The friendly lady said that she had one pull-through we would fit in (we are 38 ft 5th wheel) and she would save it for us and to call her when we got there so she could guide us in - not to come to office. We did call and she did meet us and showed us to the site. It was a long pull-though - wide and had lots of room on both sides. There was a new electrical box and it had 50 amp! We were on upper level and completely surrounded by forest and some swampy areas just outside the grounds. It would have been a nice setting but for the mosquitoes. They were swarming the minute we opened the door. I thought they were going to carry off our little 20 pound dog. I know that insects are out of the control of the campground, but it was so miserable we couldn't be outside. We were instructed to pull out the next morning and go forward through another site and around the loop, but the trees were close and we were afraid to try, so we managed to back out onto the road and then pull out the main road. The office is also a tavern and I think the woman who does the check-ins is also the bartender! She was super helpful and friendly. We would not stay again - simply because we couldn't be outside.

This out of the way campground is well used and busy. The sites are easy to get in and out of but they are close to each other. All back-ins. Some permanent residents. No noise. Lots of lights. Trash and office not convenient to campers - you have to hike up a good steep hill. Staff friendly and helpful as were our neighbors. Was told that the wifi was weak and at our site would be non existent. He was right. Not a convenient overnighter for travelers but is a good campground for activities in the area. It's an old campground and the site we had was broken concrete strips that we were supposed to stay on.

As the other reviewers have mentioned, it is a lovely campground with a super view overlooking farmland. We even had cows mooing close to the fence! The other side of the park is now a housing development. What a shame to lose that view. We had a single pull-though rather than side by side and it had a nice privacy fence. It wasn't quite level and the owner came over and apologized for it when he saw us putting our Lego blocks under the tires. He said he is working hard to make sure all sites are level. This is the only campground we have stayed where there is a chapel. Our only complaint was that the flying insects (from the farm, I'm guessing) were so pesky we couldn't sit outside. We saw others had screened gazebos over their tables. Nice site, beautiful campground, bad bugs. I know it's not the fault of the campground, but it did detract from the fun.

This is an old KOA, has small gravel roads and sites. Leveling was a bit of an issue, but we managed. There is a section in the trees that are permanent and the transient sites all seem to be in the sun. There was the obligatory train noise, but otherwise was quiet. We would stop here again traveling through the area.

The only reason I didn't give this park a 10 is that there is a lot of noise. It's not their fault, but does distract from the experience. We had a lovely end site with lots of shade but we were about 100 yrds from the interstate. The place was immaculately groomed and landscaped, it was clean and spacious, and would have been ideal had it not been so close to the road. Staff was friendly and helpful. We did happen to be there on a night when a country bar a quarter of mile away was having an outdoor concert and the sound carried over the traffic noise, it was that loud. I was told it happens once a month - and we just got lucky?

This is definitely an overnight stop, not a destination park. It is near the intersection of two interstates and is easy in and easy out. We had a long pull through which was surprisingly level. The water hook ups were strange. The utilities were set up for side by side parking. We shared the water hookup and the guy who came in after dark and hooked up didn't tighten his hose and when we got up this morning the place was flooded. It was a mess. About half the park residents look pretty permanent. There is a lovely pond at the back of the park and plenty of grassy areas for walking the dog. It was fairly quiet despite being close to the road and there were lots of lights.

Love this place! One of the nicest military RV parks we've stayed in. We got a shaded site this time. Our son lives in the area and this is our go to place to stay when we visit. Staff is friendly, place is clean, and the location can't be beat!

This is an older park with narrow roads and narrow sites. The sites were concrete but the one we had was all broken up from tree roots as were the stepping stones next to the slab. I was very cautious when walking around the RV - could just see an ankle getting twisted. The sites were close, but not uncomfortably. WIFI wasn't strong at all. The place was clean and the staff friendly. I'd probably stay again for an overnighter, but not for long term although it looked as if people do. Apparently they have a lot of snowbirds along with visitors to New Orleans.

I expected this RV park (by the name) to be way out in the woods and was surprised it was right off the road near the off ramp from I-10. Very convenient in and out for an overnight stay. Sites were clean, office staff very friendly and helpful (cookies were waiting), and there was plenty of room for the 5th wheel and truck. The downside was that there is a big truck stop next door with LOTS of lights!!! The campground is located behind a Super 8 (I believe) motel and next door to the truck stop. We ended up having a neighbor who was not a considerate camper - he did not have his slide to the sewer drain closed when he pulled in so when he uncapped it - well, you know. Then in the morning, he did not close it before he pulled off the sewer hose. Again.... it was gross. We hosed it down and poured bleach water over the area after he left so we didn't have to smell or see the mess. We would stay again while traveling through LA on I-10.

This park is extremely well maintained, has lots of trees and grass, the sites are easy to get in and out of. I used the laundry room - it was clean. This is a "gated community" so felt safe as you need a passcode to get into the park. Most of the park is filled with people who live here but there seems to be adequate spaces available for overnighters. We ended up staying two nights because it was so comfortable and clean compared with the last few places we have stopped crossing Texas. We took the extra day to get groceries and clean house and do laundry. Except for traffic noise from I-10, the park is quiet - we were here on a weekend so am not sure what it would be like in the mornings as all the workers take off in their trucks. WIFI was adequate - had no trouble accessing email. We would definitely stay here again.

We had reservations and paid for a "deluxe" site. It was a cement pad in a large parking lot. The spaces were close together and we were lucky to only have one neighbor and not two. There were several sites like ours but in walking around with the dog we saw that the main campround had beautiful sites with grass and trees and gravel pull throughs - some of them empty. Don't know what we did to deserve the site we were assigned but you can be sure we won't be back. In addition, we picked up a huge nail in our tire as we were pulling out. We were not happy campers. Never again.

We found the park just as we expected. Our site was a good one. We had a small tree for some shade and the site was close to level. We were impressed with the dog park - large and grassy. It was good to be able to let our dog run free. We were surprised at the number of RVs there that people lived in full time, but there was plenty of space for the many folks who pulled in for the night. We would stay here again on our way across Texas.

The campground is a typical eastern Texas campground with gravel roads and gravel sites. Our site was easy in and hopefully will be easy out in the morning! Some effort has been done to put in trees, cactus, bushes, here and there. The campground is very clean and has two fenced in dog areas side by side so that big and little dogs can be separated. It's shaded by willow trees, has a bench for the human and poo bags are provided. The staff has been super friendly and helpful. We ended up staying an extra night due to high winds and we were accommodated with no problem. There is propane service, which we used. We did hear trains but not at night. There are a lot of lights at night and it was difficult to sleep with the windows open.
