This park is an anomaly. As you drive up and into the park you think, how did this dump get such good reviews. Agree that the people are very friendly and helpful. Site was level but close together. Utilities worked well. I got extended Verizon 3G service at the campground. Bathrooms and laundry clean. Water pressure low at 30 psi. I had just enough room to manuever my 40 foot fifth wheel. Wifi was just ok. My Wifi complaint is that they block a lot of websites. Example, I wanted to check my bank and it wouldn't go through so good thing it wasn't urgent. Wifi was pretty quick for the basics email that it allowed you to access. The park served it's purpose without the complaints of the other park a few miles away.

As others have said this is much like a giant parking lot. Utilities worked well. The key point I would make is it is very, very dusty. Every vehicle that drives through kicks up a big cloud not to mention what the wind does. The Wifi worked well at times and other times (probably when a lot of people on) not well. Large enough sites (length and width) for any size rig with lots of room to maneuver.

The last review pretty much says it all. I'll just add a few things. Utilities worked well. The park is not well marked from the highway. There is a big, very tall sign across the street (north side) right at the entrance. Coming from the east there is a big block wall that blocks seeing the entrance until you are on top of it. Coming from the west look for that big sign across the street. We had a pleasant stay and would stay here again.

Easy in/out. Friendly staff. Paved roads and gravel sites. Sites are level but very close together. We asked for a long site for our big rig and we barely fit. Utilities worked well. Wifi worked well (most of the time). Laundry was clean and reasonably priced. Strong Verizon signal. Distant highway noise. Good place for an overnight since there isn't anything else for many miles.

Pretty easy in and out. Some interior roads are better than others. We ended up over on one side where it was quite a side slant but at least the site was level. Utilities worked fine. We were behind the office so wifi worked decent most of the time. Verizon signal was good. I would stay here again.

Good sized sites. Utilities worked although the water pressure was low. Wifi worked well. Verizon signal strong. Easy in/out with no problem with our 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a nice clean little park with great sunsets and easy access to town. Definitely would stay here again.

Sites are just long enough for big rig and good width with grass. Although not the most level, level enough. Utilities worked but water pressure only at 30 psi. Easy in/out off of I25. Friendly, helpful, flexible staff. Very nice facility. Fuel just up the street.

Large sites well spaced out. Easy in and out. Utilities work well. Restrooms are clean. Wifi worked well. Good cell reception. Miles of walking/biking paths. Large, nice beach. Laundry facility but be careful sometimes a machine won't work. Coin showers. One of the nicest parks we've ever stayed at.

Easy in/out. Level, paved site. Utilities worked well. Verizon signal strong. We found the Wifi to be very shakey. We loved the distance between sites, nice large grassy area and the sites are staggered so you aren't just side-by-side. I give it a very rare 10.

We arrived mid-week and were lucky enough to be able to pick our site out of a list of several. Good thing because some would have been too short. The sites here vary a lot in size. Utilities worked well. Wifi worked pretty well at our site up closer to the front. Sites are pretty level. Most have nice size grassy area between sites with table and fire pit. Verizon signal strong. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Mostly paved interior roads are in good shape. Right up there with one of the nicest parks we've stayed at. Rate is ROD.

Sites are really packed in tight. As others have said, the expert help by owner guiding into sites was needed to squeeze in. We had some tree branches hanging low and he promptly came and cut them. Very dusty interior road. Utilities worked well. WiFi was hit or miss. Verizon signal strong. Trees blocked our satellite access but would have been fine at other sites. The park was extremely busy so bathroom cleanliness varied.

We stayed for a one night while passing through. All was pretty average, nothing special. Utilities were fine, Verizon signal strong. Very dusty interior roads. Road noise from highway. Would stay again for same quick night.

Price is Coast to Coast. Utilities worked well, site was very big and fairly level, good Verizon signal. Call ahead for instructions on finding the registration office. Something to keep in mind is that the C2C sites change as sites are sold for permanent residents. As of our stay there were no longer any pull-through sites and no golf course view sites as other reviews reported. The C2C sites now are only paved a short way in so your rig will be on gravel. People are friendly and helpful. Just a couple miles from town.

Date of Stay:

Long, grass, pull-thru sites that are firm even after rain. Sites are close but the park was not very busy so people spread out giving room. Utilities were good. Restrooms are dated but fine, not cleaned very often. Staff is friendly and helpful. Easy to get in and out with big rig. Free WiFi worked well. Strong Verizon signal. Good location to store, restaurant and the Porkies. Rate is weekly. Would stay here again. Rating 7 rather than 8 because restrooms marginally clean.

Beautiful sites right on Portage Lake. All are back-in. Utilities worked fine. Verizon signal strong. Campground Wi-Fi didn't work at site 9. Sites are paved and slope a little uphill but pretty level side-to-side. Each site has a fire ring, picnic table with cover and a separate bench for sitting and enjoying the view. We walked the paved path along the river into Houghton where there are a lot of good restaurants and bars.
