This is a very nice park. All paved wide roads, long sites with a concrete pad (ours was a pull-thru / FHU / 50 amp). Two sewer hookups depending on your length of hose (nice!). Lots of grass, and trees strategically placed, so you have privacy between your neighbors. Buildings are very nice, bathrooms are really nice. This is a big park with seasonal sites - though these are away from the transitional sites. WiFi was pretty good, though it did come and go. Lots of kids activities, pool, jumping pad, laser tag, bike riding, plus plus. On the other hand for those of us who are non-kids, older, and just want to get in the pool, it's overwhelmed with kids/families. Shoulder season might be better for those 55+. Nice laundry room. This again is very upscale park, but in talking with others, it is VERY busy over the weekends and crowded. Pick your days wisely. We'd come back again, just not in the summer on weekends.

Park is average. Access to some of the amenities is restricted because of the HUGE numbers of children using those amenities. Not a park for older (non-children) folks, during peak season. New restroom facilities are topnotch/ clean. Pull-through sites are very long, grass and gravel, and level, extremely wide by our standards, though the park only has a handful. Not an overly friendly park to big rigs. More suitable to smaller trailers, small 5th wheels, tents. Fortunately we had a pull-through at the far end so away from the masses of people. WiFi is bad, worked for a couple of days then went to nowhereland fast. Pool(s) are overwhelmed by kids (many kids!) making it not pleasant for childless and older folks to enjoy. They have a waterpark theme (slides, etc.) and a very strict control system for accessing (wristband). On the other hand, today we came back to the park and there were a TON of cars (non-registered visitors) using the pool(s). It was a madhouse. Too many visitors to their facilities that it overwhelms their amenities. Fortunately where we parked, it WAS quiet, (away from the pool). The dumpsters tend to get full fast and smell bad quickly. Those parked next to them, can expect tons of flies. Park staff is young/teens and not too friendly. Saw a couple of younger folks mowing, but basically not very visible. When we checked in, the teenager told us the wrong way to enter our site, we had to make another loop to get righted. We probably wouldn't come back again, only because we're not in favor of large groups camping together, etc.

This is a pretty flat surfaced KOA. Many sites are pull-through. Roads are gravel, dirt (and can be dusty). Sites are normal length with grass/weeds in between. Each site has an (older) picnic table and a fire ring. There are tall, skinny trees for some shade. Not too much visible "staff.". We were not led to our site, in fact we walked it first just to make sure of the route. The staff in the office was one woman who while friendly, offered no further information for you other then take your money and draw on your map where your site is. We did talk to a man who appears to be a workamper, but again none were very visible. There is NO cable, but our antenna pulled up several channels that worked great. Those with satellite may have trouble getting through the trees. WiFi does NOT exist. I attempted signing on several times to no avail. Apparently, there are no owners on site, in fact the KOA is owned/operated by an investment company out of Utah. A truck/5'er came in late one afternoon and caught a landscaping rock under their 5'er (no damage), but it pulled the big rock into the road. That rock stayed there for days. If it's still there when we leave, hubster will have to move it himself. :(

Stayed for 5 nights - all level sites, paved roads and concrete pads, utilities in convenient locations for most RVs. Ample pull-throughs, cable TV. WiFi works great when you can get connected. Many WiFi zones scattered throughout park, you just have to be skookum and patient to connect (there is a very helpful 1-800 # you can call for assistance.) Great amenities, nice laundry (a bit expensive $2.25 per load). KOA cafe (pizzas, ice cream etc.), but we didn't use. KOA is very convenient to Petosky. Will say that Hwy. 31 is VERY busy with traffic, pick your entry and leave time carefully (no stoplight at exit). Negatives: the pool was not accessible to many guests 55+ because it was overrun by kids, including the hot tub where they are prohibited kids, but not enforced. We asked at the office how to kindly get to the hot tub and staff immediately went out to monitor, but acknowledged they couldn't control it. Unfortunate, because they can, just choose not to. Pool was small for size of park which includes large number of seasonal sites and many cabins. Most poorly managed was trash and recycling. We were not here on a holiday weekend, yet all trash containers and recycling cans were overflowing the entire time. We did see a trash truck come one Friday, but by the afternoon, one container was full again. Clearly do not dump trash and recycle enough to keep up with the size of the park. May be typical for KOAs but this seems to be overrun by large extended family reunions with many (many) kids, bikes and dogs. This park is not for those looking for quiet, tranquil settings. On the other hand, it is a nice KOA - probably better then many, and may be quieter on more on the shoulder seasons.

This is a larger KOA but you wouldn't know it when you pull in; lots of sites in the back. We stayed over the July 4th weekend, and the place was packed, so might be some of the problem, but if you know you're going to be packed, bring on the help/staff. At check-in, the staff was nice but no one knew the park layout, which direction to pull into sites or what side of the sites the utilities were on. No one led us to our site. We walked it first because the directions from the staff were so poor. We unfortunately booked water and electric only as full hookups were unavailable. My poor(er) rating on this KOA is because we had to use the bathhouse more frequently then we would've if we'd had full hookups. The bathhouse (men/women) in the back was constantly a mess. Toilets were failing to work/function constantly. Someone complained and help came, but you never knew whether you'd get functioning toilets or not. There is no VISIBLE staff (i.e., golf carts). We met the "owner" and he drives around in a truck, but so do most of the other guests here, so unless you KNEW he was the owner, there is NO VISIBLE staff working here (other then the office/bathhouse from time to time). The interior roads are dirt (gravel long gone) and is dusty. The sites are gravel, level and somewhat long (fit our 5'er and truck). Low weeds are plentiful, as is the dirt. No grass. WiFi comes and goes, like in most KOAs. There are lots of shade trees, which probably helped in being more quiet then most parks. Convenient to St. Ignace. Small pool for such a large park. For such a large popular KOA, it's hard to understand why so few full hookups sites exist. There are 145 RV sites, only 44 are full hookups. On the other hand there are 62 tenting sites, which brings to the bathhouses trying to serve 207 sites many with 4+ people per site. Overwhelms the facilities. Hence, if we had full hookups, we'd not have had this issue.

This is one happy KOA! It's about 13 miles south of Traverse, 3 miles north of Buckley. Close enough yet far enough away from all the TC hubbub, though if you like that hubbub, you may want to stay a little closer in to TC. We stayed here for two weeks, and very impressed with the entire park and staff (there are a lot of staff). Everyone is smiling, waving, cleaning, mowing, picking things up and otherwise keeping this well run park extremely tidy. The internal road is paved and the outer side roads are gravel, but nice firm, packed gravel. Sites are large, level and long (long enough for our 5'er and truck (without having to angle park it)). There are pull-through and back-in sites. Lots of amenities for the kiddos; pool, bike riding, trampoline type things, ball sports, etc. This KOA has a bunch of very nice cabins and plenty of tent sites as well. WiFi was sometimes spotty, but some of the best service we've had in awhile. We needed a couple of packages mailed to us and the staff was ok with those deliveries. The staff is some of the best we've ever seen. Kudos to them for keeping a well run park but also letting their guests enjoy their camping experience. One night a group was a bit loud around 11pm. Hubster said he heard a golf cart outside and then within minutes all was quiet. One observation is the bathrooms/showers are at the front of the park (very clean always). For the tent campers in the way back of the park have a jaunt to get to the bathrooms in the middle of the night. Not a problem for us, just an observation.

A very curious park just off the highway 3 miles east of Munising. There's only ONE sign and it's low. If you miss it you can turn around in the motel next to it. We did just that and then once we came down the driveway of the RV park, there were signs indicating we needed to check in at the motel. The two motel staff (who clearly weren't connected with the park) gave us our park info and said that while we requested a pull-through site the owner (?) indicated if we wanted to stay up front in a back-in we could as the backwoods (I'll get into that later) was heavy with mosquitoes. Hubby did a walk-through and we decided to stay up front. It's a big grass field (just mowed) and there was only one other TT in the several (very nondescript) sites. It is full hookup and after a couple days of being here saw that they DO in fact have a cable hookup as well (look on the side of the power box, connection blends in). The backwoods is much like Sherwood Forest. It's dark, heavily (x10) forested, with plenty of sites, but it's really dark, and lots of mosquitoes. You can't see back in the woods too far, but if you walk back there, there were a number of RVs. Roads were dirt (muddy, had rain), rutted and looked overgrown and mossy. The "office" doesn't exist, but what looks like an old office is being remodeled but no office/staff. We saw a man cleaning the pool. It's a big one, but do not know if it is open. Did see someone working doing some construction, but other then that, it's almost like you're by yourself. Yesterday, 4 RVs pulled into the sites next to us, so it's feeling more like an RV park again. There is WiFi from two sources and it was good for us (likely because we up front). Bathrooms are very basic though clean. You do get road noise (and the trucks do run frequently), but it's the price one pays for sun and way fewer mosquitoes.

This is a nice park off the freeway (close but freeway noise was minimal). It's a large park with hard packed gravel interior roads. There are quite a few park homes/full-timers in this park, but they're back in the park aways and not where the short-timers park. We came in on a Saturday afternoon and hindsight would have had us not doing that. This appears to be the "only show in close proximity" so a lot of locals use it for weekends away. It was full (not packed) and we unfortunately got parked next to a couple of RVs who had definitely come there to party. It's not necessary to go into the ying/yang of that afternoon/evening (we / they took it all very well :) , but we were thankful when all the rigs started pulling out on Sunday. The rest of the week was very peaceful and quiet. The park is very well groomed, lots of green grass, sites are long and while not huge we didn't feel cramped. Gravel, grass and level sites. WiFi worked well, though a couple of occasions (mostly the weekend) it was hit/miss. The restroom (we did not use the one close to the pool) was very clean. The laundry room was nice and clean as well. There are a lot of activities for the kiddos and young adults, bikes to rent, golf carts, laser tag (what the heck is that?), plus a store that I'm sure has every possible toy for the kiddies to buy/purchase. There is a snack bar we did not use. You can walk and walk in this park. There's a wide trail that goes around the outer boundary of the park and the cornfield. We walked it a few times. It's over a mile long (just around the corn), plus add on the park loop(s) and you've got a good walk in.

What a sweet surprise after a long day traveling on rutted/bad freeway systems in KY, OH, and IN. This a beautiful, peaceful park. Ahhhh. Check in was fun and friendly. It's right off the freeway, but the noise is minimal. Did I mention the owners (son, Dad) are very friendly? What a great surprise. The interior roads are nice, firm, small diameter gravel, easy to walk on. Sites are big! Lots of trees, but none encumber your big rig. WiFi is excellent. Lots of grass and wait, what? a lake too? Yes, and it's very pretty (no swimming allowed). This is a very peaceful park. The bathrooms are northwoods style, very clean. We were led to our huge site (11A) which is always nice to get oriented in a new park. We've already walked the parameter and around the lake. We're sorry we're only staying one night.

This is a nice RV park. Everything's level, with gravel interior roads and larger sites, most with grass. Trees are growing though still small, but great views to the sky for your satellite. The park is off the freeway, down a very nice winding road but wide enough for your RV. Entrance to the park is wide and easy to access. Staff at check-in were great, very customer service oriented. We were led to our pull-through site. Sites are gravel but long enough for your RV and toad (depending on length). There are a few long-term'ers here, but they are not in the same area as the visiting RV'ers. Each site has a composite/metal picnic tables (in good shape!) and a fire ring (which we didn't use). WiFi is spotty and limited. Pool which we didn't use looked nice and refreshing and very clean and welcoming. The property has a lake/pond on it which has backup sites next to it. There is no cable TV, but antenna works great. Yes, we would definitely stay here again!

Before I forget to mention it, there is EXCELLENT WiFi here, which doesn't happen in most RV parks. We stayed here 5 nights while visiting Nashville. The park is spacious, lots of sites, lots of trees and paved interior roads. Sites are gravel/grass and level. Sites have ground level wooden patio decks that we covered with our outside rug (worked great.) Hookups worked well, though sites are somewhat narrow, so hookups are close to neighbors, but on the other hand they are long enough to fit your RV and tow vehicle. Then again, depending on how people park those tow vehicles depended on whether your neighbors were asking (understandably) to move your tow vehicle so they could swing out upon checkout. The way out (around a couple of cabins) is tight, depending if the cabin renter decides to park their vehicle close to the cabin which then makes it tight for big rigs to get around. Yes, it's tight, but workable. The freeway noise is close and if that bugs you, reconsider. On the other hand, it's a comfy KOA close (but far enough away) from the Nashville hubbub. Staff here at the KOA is friendly and always willing to help. We'll stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Sites are paved and level, but narrow. Outside living area, mix of rocks/dirt/some grass, but narrow. For big rigs, there are trees with lower branches (swing out and wide). A lot of long-term seasonal residences, using their RVs as "lake houses". Pool is nice, clean. Restrooms very clean, though only one shower per men/women restrooms. Playground area for kids looked new and inviting (we have no kids, so we just viewed from a distance). Lots of shade trees. When we were here (week before Memorial Day weekend) it was really quiet. Most of the "lake house" RVs were unoccupied, but will bet when Thursday pm/Friday am rolls around, this place will be hopping with weekenders. We were guided into our site, which is nice because of the narrow interior paved roads.

Great RV park in the Ozarks, right off Hwy. 60, easy/on off, but you need to know where you're going. Call ahead and John or Brian (owners) will give you excellent directions. If you're looking for a pool, amenities, pavement, this is not your park, but if you want trees, peaceful setting, convenient, nice country feel, this is the park for you. John met us at the door, Brian was not too far behind, and both led us to our site, which is plenty wide, spacious, gravel site, fire ring, picnic table, trees trimmed to a height that doesn't interfere with your RV. This park pulls off a charming rustic feel. Park is 20+ acres, with a hiking trail (they designed), near 3 wineries (we were able to visit one - Horst -VERY good). Lots of outbuildings, rec center with ping pong/tv/foosball, places to sit and socialize, plus cabins to rent (if interested). Downside to this park - WiFi is minimal - not the fault of the park, it's the location (in rural America here folks). Cable not available, but antenna promises 5-6 channels - we haven't set up yet......BECAUSE, we're enjoying sitting out and enjoying the peacefulness of the evening. A camp store is soon to be open, but wasn't when we were here. Owners John and Brian were MORE then helpful with anything we needed. Very friendly owners. We'll be back. BTW we stayed in site #26, we loved it. No one on either side of us, ahhhhh, it's nice, plus on the other side of us there was a nice deck (which we didn't use) but could have if we wanted.

Date of Stay:

An overnight stay. Sites are narrow, but fortunately we didn't have anyone out our front door, but if there were, it would really be tight and cozy. Driving east on I-40, there are NO signs to indicate which exit, we were thankful we had GPS. Once we crossed over the freeway, we see the sign on the westbound lanes. You drive through a big round/about/way parking lot but there are KOA signs with arrows painted on the road (kinda weird, but it works). The person checking us in was less then friendly (not rude), just not friendly. Hookup boxes are outwardly exposed and falling apart, asphalt is breaking up (tho site was level), structurally this KOA needs some TLC. On the other hand the bathrooms/showers were big and clean (which is a plus). Cable TV in our spot didn't work, so we just connected to the empty spot next to us, but still, shouldn't they be checking/fixing these things? WiFi is working great for us in the later afternoon, so that's a good PLUS. I-40 freeway noise is very noticeable, but we're not the type that gets bothered too much by the sounds of tires, others may. Glad we're only here for one night. Probably will find another place to stay if we're ever in the area again.

This is a very nice park, right off I-40 at exit 60. We stayed here 3 nights and nothing disappointed us (ok other then the lousy weather, but that wasn't the RV park's fault :) ) The park is big, sites are wide all paved, concrete slabs. Power/water boxes are right in the middle, easy hookups. The showers/restrooms are extremely clean, and I personally loved that they are individual bathrooms/sinks/showers. There were 6 of these in each building, which also included laundry room. The pool (wasn't open yet for the season) and adult spa/hot tub area is very clean, and nice though we didn't use because of the lousy weather. The park is relatively new with trees, but they're growing and look great. Would highly recommend this park, and we'll be back!
