Stopped over a couple of days to catch up on work. Quiet place to get some things done and take a travel rest. A highlight here was the response from a Sunday phone call--the owner answered and confirmed there was a spot and gave us a bit of direction as to coming in at night. Verizon 4g connected well here.

Stayed here to overnight for a trip into Roswell. Nice park overall...it was off-season so really quiet, nobody manning the booth. We reserved online.

Overnight stop, so we didn't seek out any of the amenities here...but we did hit tree limbs driving through the park and had a bit of trouble figuring out the pull-through options there--seems to be double-stacked two to a site. neighboring meandering dog presence meant ours stayed inside. Owner really friendly and helpful, particularly for a holiday.

Overnight stop for us, but it really was a pleasant stay. Quiet park, great verizon 4G connection, interesting decorations and signage in the park reflects a nice sense of humor with the owners. Fair amount of highway noise (to be expected).

Stayed here to remain close to airport to take a flight out. Overall, the campground was sufficient for what we needed, but otherwise I would not have chosen to come. Tight spaces, bathrooms in need of updates (walls peeling off, etc) (they do seem to be updating). Awesome front desk staff, overall a pretty quiet place given how many rigs were here.

Stopped in on our way south. A nighttime arrival presented some challenges--the signs are not necessarily that visible, but take it slow and they will appear. Excellent concrete slab site meant not too much fooling around to set up after navigating the park entry. 30 amp worked fine. TONS of raccoons resulted in our camperdog spending a fair amount of time indoors to curb the excitement.

Quick overnight stop. Laundry room worked great--reasonably priced. Verizon wifi connected fairly well here.

Site 146 was a serious pain to get level in....grass site with so many bumps and hills that we ultimately gave up and grew satisfied with a slightly off-level stay. Connections in oddly placed areas. Overall, the park had a lot of amenities, offered wifi which was a huge blessing because our verizon jetpack barely connected (verizon cell phone did not get service here) Very hot while we were here so we appreciated the lake beach. Swimming pool seemed to offer a lot of excitement, but we're just not excitement kind of people so we skipped it. If we were here during a busier time, we would not have been unable to back in to our site, as the access road was narrow and it would have been very tricky to get around the trees and poles and cabins in the way (we "pulled through" an adjoining site to get in.) Given we were trying to stay closer to other family members, we kept our given site but would otherwise have tried to find a different one. Excellent camp store and lots of opportunities to waste money on arcade-like machines and "mining" for the kids. We thought the rate was far too high for what was offered.

We love the island. We love it so much we'd probably stay in the middle of a mudpit and find it hard to complain. The campground has seen some changes in recent years--mostly in terms of cabin builds. But one thing does remain consistent...if you want to use the showers, bring your galoshes. The drainage problem there that was also present years ago results in a pretty nasty shower experience (ankle deep in mysterious swamp like whoknowswhat). Some attempts seem to be made with keeping up with the cleanliness, but the feminine products floating in the showers and crazy slow-drain soapy residue made the restrooms something to avoid during our stay. The laundry facilities are the only ones on the island, but it will cost ya $5.00 a load (2.75 wash, 2.25 dry). Some sites will challenge even the best backer-upper, as maneuvering around trees and then attempting to be level is not always an easy task here. Lots of tent camping among RV sites with W/E hookups, the purpose of which seems to be to use the electricity to run radios. All day, all night. Given that tents cannot contain noise like RVs can, some additional separation or assignment of sites might be helpful....for instance a section for tents that want electricity, etc. The park could really use some camphosts, as it appears one or two people are trying to manage the whole thing...and it shows via a lot of site neglect.

The staff and owners here were a highlight---super friendly, helpful with ideas, and patient. Our pull-through gravel site was fairly easy to get level. Verizon 4G connected well. It rained through most of our stay, although the place looked to have some really amazing walking trails and things to do that we did not have a chance to experience. Laundry on site...2 washers, 4 dryers.

Date of Stay:

Three week stay to see family and visit the local library for geneology research. We LOVED the resident goose population as there were wee chicks growing in front of our eyes. The park is near the bridge, and rescue vehicles seem to only come from Marinette over the bridge to Menominee, so there was quite frequent siren noise. Industrial action by the river made for some stinky days that resembled the smell of fried power cords, which threw us off a bit at first. Staff here were excellent and during a water line issue were very communicative and apologetic about it while the repairs were being done. Fastest way into the park---go into the shopping center and right between the two major buildings (Kmart and the grocery store), and straight ahead is the entrance. (or, follow the GPS or published directions and loop through the streets wondering if you found it yet). Handy laundromat nearby next to the grocery store. Showers were private, pristine, well-drained, and plenty of hot water. Very friendly seasonal folks.

Monthly rate is reflected in the nightly. This is a pretty impressive place. Many full time residents. Yet, we met several who were doing their 6-month move, wherein they must leave the park and then return to a different site. What a genius way to keep the place looking fresh. Beautiful landscaping. Lots to do without ever leaving "home". Coyotes singing every evening. Overall, an excellent stay at a very well-run and huge park. We'd absolutely stay again.

Nice spot! Helpful staff and even let us into the closed pool (pretty cold! But great!). Laundry facilities were large enough to handle a couple weeks of craziness. Friendly folks wandering around, excellent landscaping. Well-stocked camp store. Overall, a very nice overnight stay.

Given that this is the most convenient spot near the south rim to have a full hookup, it's just fine. Clean areas, nice check in process. Great spot to stay while visiting the GC. We'd stay again. Verizon WiFi worked with a booster, but still a bit spotty (for those who get to work while traveling). Wildlife spotted in the campsite: Ravens (who got into the trash bag and mocked the dog), elk.
