Excellent facilities. Pools, hot tub, two large rooms, nice lounge (beer/wine) with pool table. Wi-Fi solid and stable with good signal strength. No large trees to block satellite reception. Staff very friendly and helpful. Owner on site and very customer friendly. Major drawback is proximity to route 101. Very noisy most of the night. Sound carries to rear sites as well as the less expensive sites along the highway. We will check out all other alternatives before staying here again due to the highway noise. Otherwise a very nice park.

Price after GS discount. Great overnight stay. Staff appears interested in us and all are very helpful. Escorted to our site. Appears rows E and F are mostly permanents, but the sites are clean with no junk. Transient sites are very clean and reasonably sized. Park is older, but the owners seem to be dressing it up considerably. Wi-Fi is excellent. Water pressure is good. Electric is stable. Utility posts are older, but functional. Value is here for the price. We will stay here again next time through this area.

Price after GS discount. Very nice park. Mostly permanent single-wides, but they are very well kept with no little or junk around them. The RV sites are shaded, making satellite reception problematic. However very good cable is available. Wi-Fi is very good and we were are the far end of the park. Not very many amenities for young people. Water pressure very good. Electric is stable. We enjoyed our overnight stay and will definitely stay here again.

Price after GS discount. Clean park. Had an end site that was suitable, on gravel with grass on the utilities side of my rig. Water pressure is very good. Electric is stable. Downgrades are for no in-park Wi-Fi (office only) which I think is a minor form of bait and switch. Also, the sprinklers came on at 7:50 AM, just while I was disconnecting to head out. Aside from a drenching, I was upset that sprinklers would be programmed to come on at that hour, when campers are likely to be up and about, or getting ready to leave, as we were. This set us back more than 30 minutes as we had to wait for the sprinklers to stop, and then had to wipe down the side of the RV to avoid water spotting. Not very friendly at all. Not sure we'd stay here again. Would probably look around first.

I don't know what else anyone would want with a campground. Very neat, clean. Owners/staff very accommodating and friendly. Grass and gravel, all very well attended. Had to downgrade a bit due to poor Wi-Fi. The last 2 days of our 4 day stay, Wi-Fi was non-existent. We could connect, but no internet. Understand they get their cable from the local cable company, which could mean a bandwidth problem (if for instance they only can get residential service). This is a great anchor spot for visiting Glacier Nat'l Park. We will definitely stay here again.

No discounts. 10 mi south of I-90 on Hwy 89. Very small, very tight. Entry road rough and long. Gravel sites level, for the most part. Roof Satellite ok. Water press and Elect stable. WiFi is hit or miss, very unreliable. Laundry only has 4 washers, priced average. Ironing board and iron available. This is an older park, not well kept. Compared to most KOA's it will disappoint.

Rate is after GS discount. Rack rate, $36.95. Cozy CG on the east side of the river, easy access from MN Hwy 10. Gravel sites, a bit tight but not bad. Pull through sites allow tow vehicles to stay hooked up, if needed. Very friendly and informative staff that helps with parking. Lots of grassy areas, large area for pets. Trees provide shade, but still able to get rooftop satellite. Good, steady voltage. Water good. LP available. Walk to trash bins is unreasonable. Probably a good reason, but an inconvenience none the less. Firepits are dug into ground and could represent a considerable hazard when walking through your site after dark. All in all, a nice place to stay, especially for a few nights. Will stay here again.

This is an excellent RV park adjacent to the Mystic Lake Casino. Everything around the grounds is clean, well kept, up to date. There is a storm shelter that is huge and well stocked, in case of severe weather. They will come around and let you know if the weather warrants seeking safety. Voltage is stable. Water pressure is good, not too high. Make a phone call and in 10 minutes you're inside the Casino, complements of the constantly running shuttles. The restaurants and buffet inside the Casino are excellent. There is a small playground for the kids. Pets are welcome. Staff is friendly and helpful. Golf course on the property. Only ding against a perfect score is the closeness of the rig to your neighbor on the driver side. However, the awning side has a shared grassy area with picnic tables, firepits and BBQ. We will definitely stay here again. The price is right.

Rate after PA discount. We checked in and paid for two nights here on our way to Oshkosh/AirVenture. We had to leave after the first night because RV parking at Oshkosh was disappearing fast and we had another 3 hours to go. Surprisingly, the fine folks at Hi-Pines refunded our second night. That was very nice of them. The facility appears to be in the process of being upgraded with new features. There's plenty to do here for family fun with a man-made lake with all kinds of fun water stuff. The sites are roomy, but not as level as one would like. We had to block the jacks to get level and the front tires were off the ground, which I don't like. Hence, the downgrade. Water is good and power is good with steady voltage. Our only regret is that we had to leave early and didn't get a chance to really enjoy this very nice RV park. We'll definitely stay here again.

We checked in for 2 nights, ended up staying for 6 nights. Very relaxing, right on shores of Lake Superior. Forty eight miles from Quince Mines (copper) in Hancock, and best pastries in the U.P., at Amy J's in Hancock. They don't take reservations, but if you call in a day or two before your stay, they'll hold a spot for you and charge you for the hold days as well as the days of your stay. Our two rigs stayed side by side in sites 6 & 8 with a hedgerow around both sites, making it seem like a single large site, with a good view of the beach and water. We were on grass (which we prefer). The sites right across from us are sandy sites right on the beach. Park is clean, well kept. Trash emptied twice a day. Showers clean, but coin operated ($.75 for first 6 minutes, 2 minutes for each add'l $.25). Sites 65-70 are grassy AND on the beach; cost $23/night, max stay 14 nights. Good dump site on property. Most westerly section of the Eastern Time Zone. Sun sets during our stay at 9:53 P.M. Young folks water skiing at dusk, 10:30 P.M. Water pressure good. 50 A electric. If you call in, expect an answering machine. They will call you back. We loved it here and will definitely stay again.

A real gem for overnighters like us. Not exactly a 'campground'. Does have laundry facilities, though we didn't use them. Grass and gravel sites, many right on the shores of Lake Michigan. Owner very accommodating, directed us to our site. Quiet, relaxing, but not much to do. Perfect for us. Sites level. Water and electric good, voltage steady. Wi-Fi open, easy to connect, and reliable. We will stay here again.

Very busy campground. Excellent for families. Many sites very close to shores of Lake Huron. Sites very narrow and could be difficult to park if a neighbor's vehicles are parked in front of their respective RVs, which is the case most of the time since the access roads are narrow. CAUTION: if you're allergic to smoke or have COPD, this could be a problem in this campground. The firewood they sell is very smoky and, combined with tightly packed sites, smoke can be an issue. The amenities are up to par. The store is well stocked and even includes sale of alcoholic beverages along with beer and wine. Shuttle service to the ferry docks (for Mackinaw Island) is available from inside the campground. Price is after Good Sam discount. Value is there for this campground. But expect a lot of tents, kids, RVs and cabin campers. Wal*Mart nearby.

Friends paid, so we don't know the price per night. Sites level on gravel and grass. Busy park, make reservations. Cracker Barrel store/restaurant next door. Wi-Fi was down during our stay. Some sites are tight. Next to highway, but noise acceptable.

We had tow car issues and couldn't disconnect. Management shifted us to the (only) pull through and we stayed there throughout our visit, no extra charge. Owner and personnel are very friendly and helpful. Park is a bit tight, but staff helps you park. A locked gait across the entrance requires an electronic key for entrance after 8:00 pm (office closing), so we felt very secure in the park. Sites are level and have a concrete pad. Trash is picked up many times throughout the day. Laundry seems expensive compared to other parks, but the washers and dryers are much larger than most parks. There is a charge to use the showers. We found out this is the same at all the parks in the area. Very close to Salisbury beaches, Seabrook beaches (and Markey's), and Hampton beaches. I drove through 3 other parks in the area and this park has them beat hands down in almost every aspect. We will definitely stay here again. It is the ONLY park we will stay at in this area.

When you pull to register, enter the large parking lot before the campground sign. If you enter the road by the sign, you'll have to walk back up to the office. Personnel very friendly and helpful. Park seems to be in two sections, a wooded section with quite a few permanent residents, and a back open field area mostly for transients. We stayed in the back section for 3 nights. The pull through sites are very long, 40 or 50 yards, and wide enough for comfortable camping. We were able to get rooftop satellite TV. Location is ideal for driving into Bar Harbor or Acadia Nat'l Park. A few strict and perhaps questionable rules: 5 mph speed limit with a sign saying, "Clint..." will follow you to your site; extra charges if you use heaters or air conditioners. However, aside from Clint, I don't see how these rules can be enforced. We didn't have an issue, mainly because we didn't need heaters or air conditioning. Bottom line, we don't know if these are issues or not, but be aware. We will definitely stay here again.
