Its in St Ignace, so there is alot of tourist things to do. We stayed the night on our way to Wisconsin. I was disappointed with the condition of our site, and how muddy it was, but I have to say that I was very pleased with the way management handled the issues we had. They moved in on the problems right away, and did a great job of taking care of us. I will stay here again if necessary.

Camp Holiday, Inc., Boulder Junction, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week. Our site was number 57. The site was right across from playground, and near laundry room. The site was level from side to side. I did not need to shim up the tires on one side, and was very easy to level front to back. Found this campground clean, mostly quiet and well managed. There are ALOT of seasonal, semi permanent campers there. There is a nice lake with a nice beach, and a primitive boat launch. There is a large trampoline that floats, a distance from the beach for kids. I liked this campground, wish I could have brought my boat too! We camped at Camp Holiday, Inc. in a Travel Trailer.

There are a lot of beautiful lakes, great biking and kayaking. Not much for any type of city life. The nearest big city is Woodruff, and Minocqua. They have some shops to roam around in. There is a casino in Lac Du Flambeau. If you're into fishing, this place is it. This is the musky capital of the world, I guess.

Haas Lake Park RV Campground, New Hudson, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

Large park, nice setting. Very quiet at night, even over memorial day weekend. I would rate it better if it was managed better. They will not reserve sites because seasonal users get first pick. We were in a group, and our group, although when we made reservations,(we were assured we would be), were NOT near each other. The gave us a site that was promised to someone else, and that person had to go to office and complain as we were already there. Its like they didn't keep track of who was where. The grass isn't very well maintained. Lots of weeds and dandelions. I won't stay here again. We camped at Haas Lake Park RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

River Ridge Campground, Inc., Breckenridge, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

A fun, family oriented park. I noticed some litter around here and there. Not horrible, but there. Great swimming pond, pool, and river. Lots of activity, and fun for everyone. Sites are tight. Probably set up years ago when everyone had small campers. I wasn't the only one squeezing my camper into our site. Free WIFI worked good for us. I like this park and will stay here again. But you have to talk to someone and make sure the site you get will accommodate you. I had 2 trees on my site that prevented me from parking my Truck there. Things are kinda tight.

Kritter’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins, Newberry, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Clean, quiet park. Nice, level pull through sites. Grassy. They ask that you don't use a large mat so the grass doesn't get killed. It was a reasonable request to us. Owners live on site. Helpful, friendly people. They have laundrymat onsite, but not much of a camp store. They have firewood, but I am not sure about even ice. Really enjoyed staying here.

Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping, Mackinaw City, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

My wife and I liked this park. It was quiet, and clean. The store, check in, and management of the park seemed well organized. Everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful. Its a large park. Beach at campground is nice. Part of it is rocky, but most is easy access to water. It was a long walk from our site. If that's important to you, try to get nearer to it. I would stay here again.

Holly Recreation Area, Holly, Michigan

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for halloween camping. It was a fun time, people go all out for halloween camping at this park It is a nice, quiet, clean park. good electrical, and our site was pretty level and good size. Never felt crowded there. The only drawback is that there are no water hookups. Theres a spigot near but, I had to make sure my camper was full before I left home. Park rangers were friendly and helpful. It was an enjoyable experience. We camped at Holly Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Badlands / White River KOA, Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 5 nights to visit the area and sight see. It was the week after the Sturgis bike rally, so there weren't a lot of campers in the park. It made it quiet there. The restrooms were clean, and there was ample hot water. Found the people who worked there to be friendly and helpful. This campground is off the beaten path. It's a few miles south of the expressway, and there was road work going on driving to the park. You drive partially through the Badlands park to get to the KOA. We enjoyed our stay there, and I liked being away from the center of activity. It was a long drive to everything, but we enjoyed it. We camped at Badlands / White River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Close to Wall, and right in the Badlands. ours was a pullthrough site. The placement of the fire pit was kinda awkward, but we weren't there enough for it to matter. It was warm and we only had a fire once or twice.

Port Huron KOA, Kimball, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here August 4 and 5, 2007. This is a bustling active park. Great for kids. There are plenty of activities, i.e. bicycle rentals, etc. My kids loved it. There are 2 swimming pools, and although there were a lot of kids, there was plenty of room to enjoy them. We camped with 3 other families who had pop-up campers. We had a travel trailer, and stayed in a water/electric site. I think they need more dump stations. There was a long line to dump at the single dump station. Other than that, our experience here was pleasurable. This is definitely a "resort" campground. All the activities, and kids running all over would not be conducive for people looking for a quiet weekend, but we were happy there. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Pottawattamie County Fair Campground, Avoca, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $10.00

Nice clean quiet park. We spent the night here on our way home from South Dakota. Really, how can you beat the price? We got in late and left early, but the place was clean, quiet, and tranquil. I liked it. I had a chance to talk to the Manager, and he is a really nice accommodating guy. Not much here if you bring the kids, but a great place to stop for a day or so to get off the road and take a break. We camped at Pottawattamie County Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rushmore Shadows RV Resort, Rapid City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

I got a free year of coast to coast when I joined outdoor adventures campgrounds in Michigan last summer. We decided to utilize this membership and take a 2 week summer trip out west. We stayed at this resort for 8 dollars a night, and I don't think it was worth that. It starts with the size of my campsite. I have NEVER seen such a small campsite. I was next to a fifth wheel with a slideout that was 3 feet away from my awning. Our plan was to sight see during the day, then relax back at the campground towards evening,let the kids swim and make a nice dinner. I felt so claustrophobic that I couldn't stand even being at the campground. I swear our site wasn't 20 feet wide and 30 feet long. No shade, no fire pit. People in the campground office said that fire pits were limited due to high fire risk. Well, I would believe that if there was anything to burn. We were on short grass, and no trees anywhere around us. Also, if there is a ring and a sand pit, a fire would be perfectly safe. Unless the campers are too close together like you are at this place. I also found the staff to be not rude, but unaccommodating. For instance, to get ice, you have to go to the counter, pay for it, get a key, go about 50 feet outside around the corner, get the ice, then take the key back. Call me ignorant, call me dumb, but I haven't been at another campground yet that locks the ice when the office is open. Seems I got to do a lot of walking around to buy their slushy ice. I don't consider that good customer service. I bought the rest of my ice at the gas station. It was also 75 cents cheaper. The pool was ok, but smaller than most other campgrounds I've stayed at, and the bathrooms were clean. The showers have a "community" changing area, which my wife didn't like, so she used the one in the camper. As did Me and the kids. I guess I was really disappointed because coast to coast rated this a 5 star resort. I hardly think so. Most KOAs would rate better than this place. It isn't a good value, and I wasn't even impressed with the location. We camped at Rushmore Shadows RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Dells Timberland Resort, Lyndon Station, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

I liked this campground. The roads were tight..and hilly. My neighbor complained that he couldn't get his class A level, but I had no problem leveling my trailer. The pool was pristine, and the restrooms were clean, as were the showers. The only inconvenience with the showers is you can't adjust the water temp...Ohhh, it was hot enough, LOL! You had to push a button to get the water to come on, and it shuts off after a few seconds. That was a little annoying, but we didn't have a problem dealing with it. The campground has some seasonal campers that look like they've been there too long, but I liked the trees and the rustic atmosphere of the place. It was quiet at night. I found this campground very relaxing after hooping it up at Mt. Olympus all day. We spent 3 Nights here. We camped at Dells Timberland Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Saginaw Bay Resort (outdoor adventure park), Standish, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2006 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an outdoor adventures membership campground. We joined last year, and this is the only campground we have used out of 5 available to us in Michigan. This is a nice campground, with all the amenities. The biggest draw back is there are not many showers. Not a lot of bathrooms available either. Also, I find the sites to be kind of small compared to other campgrounds we have stayed at. Some sites are larger, but you got to beat the retirees to get them. You make a reservation, but sites are first come first served, which I don't like. The staff is really friendly and helpful, and they don't rape you at the store. The pool is nice, but can get crowded. They have "adults only" for an hour during the day at the pool, and that is kind of nice, because you can relax and have the kids play elsewhere, and enjoy the quiet. Our kids are old enough to go to the playground themselves, so we kind of like it. They just built a nice putt-putt course. And it is relatively cheap to play ($2.00), and there is also a pond or small lake with a small beach. I consider this a destination campground to take the kids. They really like it. I don't know if I'll get my money's worth out of it over 5 years, but it is nice. I haven't had any problem getting in on holiday weekends. At the outdoor adventures in Davidson, you can forget getting in there on holidays. I've tried 3 times now. We camped at Saginaw Bay Resort (outdoor adventure park) in a Travel Trailer.

This was our maiden voyage in our new trailer last year. It was a nice campground. Staff friendly, pool clean, our site was a good size.
