Date of Stay:

Stayed two days to explore the area. Very nice park. Clean, well kept and friendly. Big rigs should find half the sites usable, a few pull through sites might be tricky. They are addressing some shoreline erosion with riprap so much of the natural shoreline is disappearing, but it will make the camp sites secure.

Date of Stay:

Nice paved camping area amongst the fair ground buildings and surrounded by lawn and trees. Roller skating 100 feet away. Downtown Marietta is a two minute drive away. Big rig friendly with level sites. Woodalls says there are 40 water and electric sites. We noted many sites very close to the river.

Date of Stay:

Very nice shady park. The campsites may challenge the bigger rigs. Sites are paved but heavily surrounded by trees and shrubs. Power pedestals are not at sites, they are shared and can be anywhere from 25' to 100' away. Nice lake and beach. We travel with no kids, but we did notice they have a nice up to date play set near the camping and more equipment near the beach. Only marks off are for the slightly dated bathhouse. Typical for most Michigan State parks.

Date of Stay:

Pay showers ??? Not real happy after heading all the way down for a quick shower and undressing only to find I need quarters. Otherwise this site is nice, albeit there are few things to do. They are close to shopping, the Christmas store and Frankenmuth. Level, shady, and easy to maneuver. Full hook ups. But do bring quarters. They'd get an 8 otherwise.

Date of Stay:

Crowded, noisy, and rumors of a big fight the night before. Hey, it's a party place with plenty of drinking, barking dogs, and noise. Fairly level, shady, and asphalt roads breaking up. Big rigs could be challenged.

Date of Stay:

Park is set between two lakes with a boating channel between them. Looked like good fishing. Level, bigger rigs and a mix of shady and sunny. Close access to lakes with many water front sites with docks.

Date of Stay:

Nice park. We stayed in Pine campground, we had a site backed up to the dunes that allowed us to walk a thousand feet straight to the water, albeit up and down some steep dunes. Nice 1.5 mile walk to the lighthouse. Walk north to it along the beach. Beaches are beautiful up there. I don't think we saw one dead fish in 12 miles of beaches we walked. Sites are fairly level, mostly hard packed sand.

Date of Stay:

We stayed at the lakefront site a mile or so north of the riverfront site. Lucked out with a very nice walk-up site 200' from the beach. Sites were un-level hard packed sand and very shady just behind the dunes. Nice stairs to beach.

Date of Stay:

We were traveling through to Michigan west coast and this is a good stopping point. Park was crowded for mid week. Sites were level and easy to maneuver.

Date of Stay:

Improvements coming along, but there is a lot lacking, especially shade. Much of the place was under construction. Mostly gravel and dirt, and level.

Date of Stay:

We picked this place because of the friendly staff and the gravel sites. We have had a lot of rain and there isn't a puddle anywhere. There is a stream around the site and plenty of things to do. Internet and cable were not extras. For an over nite stop before heading out to the battlefield, this is the spot. The beginning of the auto tour, where the battle began northwest of town, is minutes away.

Date of Stay:

Nice mountain top campsite with a beautiful lake and beach. We only spent the nite, but it looked like it was a pleasant getaway. A bit of a climb. If you are coming in from the west on Rt 30 they said it was safe to drive in on Aughwick road at the summit between Ft Loudon and McConnellsburg. We would have saved about 8 miles that way. We are ADA campers and they did not have non pet ADA site so we were forced to pay a premium (added pet fee) for an ADA site near a restroom. PA should look into this policy, they need to offer equal accommodations for ADA campers without charging premiums. Lower rating was only because of this issue, 10's otherwise.

Date of Stay:

Disappointing, little to do, pit toilets with only a dozen or so good site which were taken.

Date of Stay:

Prior review is pretty accurate, but the rate they mentioned were way off. We paid $18 with tax per nite and the $7 entry fee is good for the week, not a daily fee. This park is great and has something for everyone. Great sites and great views. Planned on one nite, stayed two.

Date of Stay:

Very nice small state park half way between St Louis and Springfield close to the Route 66 right of way. We planned a one day stay and ended up there three nights. Friendly hosts, kid friendly, nice hiking trails, with 1.7 mile hike around the lake. Restaurant is nice, try their home made pies. Plenty to do 7 miles to the north in Carlinville.
