I guess I expected more. Park roads have signs that indicate to swing wide to make turns which is fine if there is not a car parked in such a way as to make the turn difficult. Sites are narrow and getting into and out of them can be problematic. Pool, clubhouse and laundry are clean but old and dated. Staff, at check in and during several visits to the office, seemed to always be having a bad day and were not at all friendly. I would find someplace else to stay if I returned to the area and I think this is the first review I've ever said that in!

Beautiful State Park. Sites are not assigned ahead of time but on arrival we were given a list of sites that we would be 'allowed' to camp in given our rig size - 40 foot motorhome. Our tag was color coded and we were told to notify the office by phone once we settled in. The sites available to us were all pull thrus. We would have preferred one of the back-ins that were more open and would have worked better with our satellite dish. All that being said, we had a wonderful week here. Site was spacious, 50 amp power worked flawlessly and the park laundry was clean and reasonably priced. Park is convenient to both Richmond and Petersburg which are filled with history. This was a second visit for us and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Beautiful state park that is located near Appomattox Courthouse National Park. The road in is narrow and has some low hanging branches which required a bit of 'defensive' driving! Sites are not assigned ahead of time so you get to choose from those that are available. All sites are good sized and will accommodate any sized rig - disregard the size limit information on the park web site. We took advantage of the canoe/kayak rentals in the park and enjoyed a very nice paddle down the James River. We would stay here again.

As others have indicated the access road to the park is a bit narrow. Turning into and out of the park requires a bit of a leap of faith as it is located on a turn and you can not see oncoming traffic. With that being said, this is a very nice park that is conveniently located to Monticello and Ashlawn along with the city of Charlottesville. Staff was among the friendliest we have ever met and went out of their way to help us. Our 40 foot motorhome had no problems with the park roads, all utilities worked but park is heavily treed and our roof mounted satellite dish did not work. We also had very limited Verizon cell phone service. We would stay here again.

Stayed for a week over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Convenient to Gettysburg battlefield and city. At time of booking we requested a roof mount satellite friendly site and were assigned a site that met our needs. We had no problem accessing the park and site in our 40 foot motorhome. Utilities worked and we had a strong Verizon signal so our phones and mi-fi device worked with no problems. Laundry facility is clean and reasonably priced. Over priced in our opinion but it is line with other parks in the area. We would stay here again.

This was our second visit to this beautiful state park. Sites are all back in's and offer electric hookups only. Roads and sites are paved. This is located in a beautiful setting with lots of activities within the park, including a golf course. Easy access to Toledo as well. We would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to a return visit.

A very nice, large park. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Pull thru sites are very large and well spaced. All utilities worked well. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots to do in the area and a lot of planned activities in the park. We would definitely recommend this park and are looking forward to a future visit.

Big rigs should avoid this park. Narrow entry road off the freeway, no place to park to check in and sites are angled at 90 degrees making them difficult to get in and out of. Staff on arrival was young, unprofessional and not helpful at all. It is in a beautiful setting and would be a nice place to stay with a small unit or a tent.

Easy access off I25. Quick and friendly check in. Led to site by park staff. Long pullthru allowed us to stay hooked up and had no problems getting into or out of the site. Utilities well located. Verizon cell service worked as did the park wi-fi. Used this as an overnight stop and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Easy access to I80, can see the park as you exit. Staff very friendly and helpful. Interior roads are gravel and quite bumpy. You are led to site by staff. Pull-thru site plenty long to get in and out of. Good 50 amp power. Staff recommended the use of a water regulator due to high pressure. Laundry room open 24/7 and very clean. They have a courtesy shuttle into town if you wish to stay hooked up, we did not take advantage of it. We would recommend this park and would stay here again if passing through.

Heavily treed with dirt access road and site pads. Very quiet and all utilities worked fine. No satellite due to trees. Staff is very friendly as are the seasonal residents. Nice pool and lots of activities planned for the weekend (kid-related). We made last minute plans to visit Michigan Adventure and this was the only campground we could find with room available. It is about 20 miles north of the amusement park. We would stay here again.

Rate is for 30 amp and water, back in site. Reserved here in February via the mail. Received several calls from the manager about site choice. Seems he was dealing with a larger than normal number of 'seasonal campers' so we were moved from a full hookup site into a power & water site. No problem, happy to be able to stay here for a week in July. Site was level with view out front and 'living room' of Little Traverse Bay. Park wifi is very good and we had no problems with cell or DirecTV service. There is a very loud hum, as others have mentioned, from the hospital which is located above the campground. After a day or two it became background noise and we didn't really notice it any more.

Sites are located around the perimeter of a parking lot next to the demolition derby/rodeo grounds. These events are held seasonally and would make the location very noisy/busy if they were occurring. To access the power and water you need to park on grass but your tow vehicle or 'towed' can park on asphalt. There is also a picnic table at each site. Good 50 amp. No obstructions for roof mounted satellites, and Verizon worked well here. Pick a site and than register at hotel desk in casino. Be sure and get your Rewards card - new members get free play and other 'rewards'. Easy access to St Ignace and ferries out to Mackinaw Island. The only drawback here is that it is nearly impossible to get level due to the slant of the lot. But a good deal - if you stay away from the gambling - at $10 a night.

We booked our site by mail in February. We had a back in 50 amp and water site on the river - view out the back not the front window of our coach. There is a row of back-in, river facing sites that we would try to get into next time. With the exception of the river front sites the park was not full during our visit. The 50 amp voltage was low and our coach ran more like it was on 30 amp (one appliance at a time). Verizon worked and we had no problems with our roof mounted satellite dish. Dump stations easily accessible - one for rigs going out, the other for rigs coming in. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount for 50 amp and water pull-through site. Sewer only available at 30 amp sites. Park is clean and well maintained. Very limited Verizon cell phone service. Our roof mounted satellite worked in the site we were assigned but some other sites may be too treed. We visited the falls and shipwreck museum from here one day and the Seney National Wildlife Refuge and the fabulous Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway on our second day. You are asked to sign a waiver upon registration stating that you can not ask for a refund due to bugs or weather. We found it funny...others may not. Bugs were not too bad in late July.
