This state park CG is as nice as a CG can be. The Pinewoods loop is new and has excellent full hook-ups and level pads (most or all are concrete - not sure about the ones nestled in the woods). The only negative thing is that, if you are using the CG as a stop-over, it is far from the interstate on a convoluted route. The park has hiking trails and a large "beach" with a lake. There is also a nature center. Ideal for walking, jogging, walking your dog, flying a kite, or having a picnic. Just a lovely well-maintained state park with lots of trees and lots of green space.

This park is highly rated on RV park reviews but I'm not sure why. It is really an average CG. My review may be biased because we stayed here over a long holiday weekend and the place was jammed. Every site was taken and mostly by trailers with Mom, Dad, 3 kids and 2 dogs. Also, the section of the CG where we stayed is built over a spring and it had rained a lot recently so the spring caused the entire section to be a huge mud pit. All of the nice spring grass was underwater and you could not walk around without getting your shoes soaked. The CG is well-organized and has plenty of staff. There are some new features (swimming pool, cabins) and some things are not so new (machines in laundry are very tired). On a crowded weekend, the campsites are very close and some are hard to get in and out of - the poor guy with the new fifth wheel across from us tried a dozen times before he could back in. Other sites have much easier access and if the CG isn't busy, there is ample space. If you are looking for a decent CG with amenities like full hook-ups, cable (old cable and terrible picture), pool, CG store with ice cream and homemade fudge (absolutely delicious), this is a fine spot.

This is a very nice state park CG. We were only here overnight so did not hike any of the trails or see the bones. The sites are paved but not very level. The park is about 10 very hilly and windy miles off I-71. There is 30 amp power and water at every site. Dump station on the way out. Lots of trees, and sites are not close except for a few right by the pool/bathhouse. Well-maintained and probably jammed on busy weekends. I don't know if there is much to see/do in this area but this is a pleasant state CG for a stopover.

This is a perfectly ok park for an overnight stay. It is very close to the interstate although the roads are narrow and windy. The campground itself is well-maintained but about half of it is devoted to permanent trailers and some of them are in poor condition. The owners are super-nice.

This is a fine little CG a couple of miles off interstate 57. It is situated along a small lake which seems to be popular for fishing. Our site was FHU and level. The cable was out and apparently has been for a while as the CG changes providers. There are lots of trees and the sites are spacious and spread out in a pleasantly scattered manner. We would definitely stop over again.

This is a well-managed but charmless KOA. It is very convenient to Hwy. 39 and reasonably close to Madison. (it took us 25-30 minutes) The maintenance is excellent. The sites are arranged in concentric arcs and all sites are full hook-up and pull-through. There is grass between the sites but it's pretty beat up from people driving on all the edges. The office is efficient and there is an ok laundry, a small camp store, and a nice kids' playground.

This is a fantastic little town CG that we could not find. There is no physical address listed anywhere and our GPS sent us far, far away. If you can get there, you'll find a very cozy small CG right along the lake with water and electric (there's a dump but no sewer hook-ups). The office is staffed on a part-time basis. The upkeep is very good for a town facility that has probably been heavily used all summer. Porcupine Mntns Wilderness state park is only about 15 minutes away. There is a CG with electric-only in PMWSP but it is not as pleasant as this one.

This CG is located on the main road a couple of miles outside of Munising. It is a very convenient location for going on Pictured Rocks boat rides and accessing the western end of P.R. The CG itself is scruffy but adequate. We had full hook-ups and a great site right on the lake. There are plenty of potholes in the main road and the office seems to be staffed on a part-time basis.

We visited this CG at the end of the season so it was not crowded (as in many other reviews). Actually we were able to choose a large site looking right out at the lake. Half of the CG had already closed for the winter. It was easy to imagine that in the summer months the place could be a zoo, but during our visit it was peaceful, clean, and comfortable. We had full hook-ups which all worked fine and there's even cable tv. (you probably can't get any stations with an antenna). There's a laundromat (worked well) and the usual bathrooms/showers (did not use). It is true that Munising is more central to Pictured Rocks and has more to offer (groceries, restaurants) but this CG is actually nicer than any of the CGs in Munising. The no-reservations policy seems archaic in these days of internet and cell phones and maybe they'll change it.

Tiki is a fairly average rv campground with a great location for visiting Mackinac Island and other area attractions. There are a couple of semi-paved sites that are level but most sites are dirt/grass and not level. The guy in the office is helpful. The CG could use some updating but it's a fine place to stay for a night or two.

This park is located on the waterfront very close to the Soo Locks, a major visitor attraction. It is a tight little park but pleasant enough for a night or two. We stayed here on a beautiful night in late September and it was almost full despite the lateness of the season, so think about reservations. This CG is very close to another one, Aune Osborne, but seemed to us to be a little nicer (but similar). You can see the lake and the huge carriers passing by from almost every site, which is interesting and pleasant. Our site was in the back of the CG under some trees and it was not level at all, but most of the sites closer to the lake are paved and very level. We chose our site because it wasn't as close to neighbors - the lakefront sites are very close.

We visited this provincial park in late September, so it was closing down for the year. There was a self-pay kiosk and a site with electricity was $42.00 Canadian. The weather was still great so the park was busy despite the lack of staff. There were 4 camping loops, 2 with electricity and 2 without. There is water available in the park but no water or sewer hook-ups. Most sites are back-in. The camping sites are nothing special, dirt with 30 amp power. But the walking in the park is exceptional since the park includes a very large area of waterfalls and waterfront where you can walk/hike/fish/explore. Our dogs loved it. And we enjoyed the beautiful property and peaceful area.

This is a lovely CG which seems to be a new section of a larger existing CG. (since the office was closed I don't really know) It is located right on the Connecticut River and many of the sites look out onto the river and trees (and mountains on the other side of the river). There are brand-new full hook-ups, cable, and even wi-fi that works. There is a store (closed). For an overnight stop near the White Mountains, this is ideal. There are some seasonals but everything is very tidy and well-kept. The roads are perfectly paved and the gravel sites are level.

Lake Pemaquid CG is a huge place with many features: beaches, boathouses, a store, playgrounds, etc. It is very family-friendly and there were lots of kids riding around on bikes and playing various games,swimming, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time. The upkeep of the entire facility is so-so. The main paved road is hard to tell from the many dirt roads because the paving is in poor condition. There are lots of trees and some grass but it isn't particularly manicured. The water is lovely and because it isn't the ocean, it is not too cold to swim in. There are many seasonal campers and they are scattered around in the CG. There are a variety of sites and there's probably one to suit anyone's taste. There was one area (near us) where a noisy group of seasonal campers seemed to gather every night to have a fire and drink and make way too much noise. This is a beautiful location and probably ideal for families who like outdoor recreation.
