Date of Stay: December, 2016
We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Savanah area. Didn't spend a ton of time at the campground. Lots of hurricane damage that was mostly cleaned up, but some areas of the park are still closed. We got a pull through site and had plenty of room. Campground was quiet while we were there. We made a reservation, but reservations are not for a specific site. You just pick a site when you get there. Also, you cannot enter the park to check in after 10pm. We didn't know this, but we adjusted and spent the night at Cracker Barrel. The campground credited us one night on our reservation and let us check in at 9am the next morning, which I was surprised with. The policies seemed a bit odd, but didn't impact us too much. We visited the historic fort and the visitor center before we left. Was enough to spend about an hour, as there isn't too much to it, especially in the off season.

Pretty average campground, part of a larger Kalamazoo County park. 29 sites with water and electric on one loop, 22 rustic in a separate area. Large trees, so most sites get good shade. Water is at every third site, so you may need 75' of hose to reach, 30a and 20a electric is at each site. Within 15 minutes to Binder Park Zoo, and Kellogs Cereal City. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Spent most of our time away, instead of doing camping activities, so no good handle on amenities. Beach was on the other side of the lake as part of the park, would have been a long walk or a short ride. Would return again if going back to Zoo or Cereal City.

As others have said, this park is aging. Playground, while having more than others, is getting tired. Trees in some bad places for navigation. Free wireless internet, but wasn't working during our stay. At $50/night + $3 per pet, I was expecting much more, specifically clean and shiney. We had fun, just not enough to justify the price. It was the best option for where we needed to be, next time, I'd pick one of the others in the area.

This is a typical Michigan DNR campground. Electric only, 20 & 30 amp, with water spiggots (no threads for hoses) here and there and dump station on the way out. Toilet and shower building is new and clean. Grass goes up to lake in the lower campground and a sandy beach is a walk along the lake. Boat launch is available on the lake. Many trails for the kids to explore.
