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.

Date of Stay:

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.

The town and the location are the draw and the park is what it is. Hookups are all over the place so when you make your reservation make sure you can handle what you are getting. Many sewer hookups are uphill, many sites are not level, electric may be way at the front of the site or mid-way. Electric (30 amp) worked well. The bathrooms are large and very clean. Walking distance to town. Lake is very close. No cell service at all. Wifi worked only part of the time and when it did it was very slow. You are off-the-grid around here. Great hiking trail starts at the resort. Satellite dish connected fine.

Date of Stay:

Roads are just wide enough for a big rig but some sites have tree challenges backing in. Utilities all worked well. WiFi only works close to office. Sites are pretty level. Great location to see Marquette and area. Trails run along park for easy walking or biking. Very peaceful during the week but filled up on weekend with families. Definitely would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park. Easy in/out, level site and good utilities. WiFi worked great. The last reviews summed it up accurately. I just want to add that there are many miles of hiking/biking trails that can be accessed from the campground. Not a lot of FHU sites so if that is what you want reserve well in advance.

Date of Stay:

Fast, friendly check in. Very helpful desk person. Site is just big enough for a large rig, not overly level. As others have said, all blacktop with sewer connections not well designed, but it worked. Wi-Fi was excellent and laundry was good. Average ease of entry and exit for big rigs. High price but no other options for many miles.

Date of Stay:

With no water or sewer you are forced to use the dirty, nasty showers and restrooms. Fill up your water tank before parking. The only positive is our big rig site on blacktop was level. Did not enjoy and won't stay again.

Date of Stay:

Sites really groomed or leveled, like being in a field. Varying length pull-through sites you pick yourself. Seems like the longest ones are near the entrance. OK place to stay when passing through.

Date of Stay:

We had a level site, easy to get in/out, utilities worked fine. Wi-Fi worked fine when park empty but went down hill as it filled up on the weekend. This is a pretty average place with many permanent residents mostly there on the weekends. The major downside of this park is constant road noise from the highway right next to the park. If you want activities for the kids they seem to have them here. Rate is weekly.

Date of Stay:

Easy in/out, level site. Friendly helpful staff. Utilities worked fine. Nice amount of space between sites on sides but each site has close end-to-end site for shared utility hookup. This makes water and electric hookups in the very back of the site. It was not busy when we were hear so this was not an issue but if it were packed our 5er would be butt up against a neighbor being not so nice and requiring the shade be left closed for privacy.

Date of Stay:

Easy in/out off of the road. We maneuvered fine with our big rig and fit in our site just fine. All utilities were fine. Site was level and there is a good amount of space between sites. Bathrooms/showers are recently renovated and great. My only complaints are the muddy mess and the price.

Date of Stay:

No frills basic park. Easy in/out off highway. Electric and sewer were fine but water pressure was extremely low. Our site was level although muddy from days of rain. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bathroom was clean but not heated so was not good when used in the cold morning.

Date of Stay:

Most sites are level and long. Many pull-thru sites. Utilities worked well. We were in the Buffalo loop and the WiFi was fine. Slow at times but pretty good most of the time (note you may need to reenter your password each time your computer goes to sleep).

Date of Stay:

Stayed 3 weeks in the short-term area. Sites are level and the utilities worked well. The clubhouse is now reopened and is very nicely renovated. WiFi has been made more powerful so the signal was strong at the site but throughput was still bad sometimes. Previous reviews summed up other points nicely.

Date of Stay:

Very well maintained park. Friendly, helpful owners. Easy in/out. Long level site in E section for big rig. Grass between sites. Electric and sewer were good. Water pressure low. Wifi decent for simple browsing. Would stay here again.
