Very small and very clean with paved roads, sandy sites that are mostly level. We don't pull a toad and are short at 25' but I noticed a few class A and even long Cs had to maneuver their toads to unhook or hook on the road as their sites barely fit their rig length. 32 total sites and 2 are campground hosts. Very quiet, fully shaded and surrounded by bog-like areas that probably have a fair share of mosquitos in warm weather so bring insect repellant. Two sets of washer/dryers to use and the sites all seemed to have full setup including sewer. The cost of $20/night was a great value. The campground is about 3 miles in from the main road. We spent a morning on-site visiting the caverns, a very good thing to do. After that we used this as our base and drove along the beaches and byways to enjoy the area. The showers were ok, with low flow, but whenever someone flushed a toilet or ran water in a sink, the hot water disappeared immediately and gave quite a cold shock. Sites had fire rings, tables and lantern poles and there was a good distance between for privacy. There is also a swimming area, open in season and easily reached via a short trail, as well as equestrian stables for those traveling with their horses. We would stay again.

Enroute to FL, we were given a suggestion to camp overnight here by an employee at the GA Welcome Center on I85. This is about 1 hour Southwest of Atlanta and easy to get to. The GPS sent us down 190 but we found a park sign to turn on 354. While there are 2 entrances, one off each route, the 354 side worked best for us as we had to register at the visitor Center on 354. The 190 entrance is smoother but we'd have had to drive all the way thru, register, then backtrack to locate a site. It is first come first serve. The staff helped us determine the best loops for our RV. At only 25 feet in length, we had no issue but we decided loop #5 looked best. One thing we did wrong was not drive the entire loop before choosing a site. Had we done that, likely we'd have stayed in sites 515 to 530 which were quite level and nearer the bath house. Instead we drove in and out of sites 506 to 512, trying to locate something level. We don't have a leveling system and have to use boards. We finally stopped in site 512 and played with boards until quasi-level. If we return we will definitely choose more wisely. The bathhouse had 2 good showers with changing areas plus multiple toilets and a pretty intense heater. It was February and likely they were prepared for it to be much colder than it was. The roads are paved, the sites gravel with some substantial ditches running along side some sites. Our 30 amp breaker kept popping when we tried to use our Surge Guard so we were unable to connect that. If we were staying longer than one night we'd have had that looked at. Water pressure was a little low. We had OK Verizon connectivity and picked up 12 over-the-air, very clear TV stations, more than we needed. We would return and see the sights of the area.

This is a large facility, kept very clean and beautiful by the state. The entrance to register is at the entrance to the state park which is also the entrance to East Campground. But we had to backtrack half a mile to enter the West Campground after registering. I'm glad I picked a site for an RV of 30' even though we are 25'. The site we booked was deep enough for 30 but gave us a bit of a buffer from the road. The site map showed our site at the edge of Lake Fanny Hooe but there is a thicket of trees there. The water is barely visible and is on the other side of the road. But also on the other side of the road is a place to park another vehicle, if we'd needed it, but we don't tow anything. There are hot showers and good toilets though the shower water pressure drops a bit when a toilet flushes. There are outdoor spigots on the shower building to hook up to onboard potable water. The dump station also has two potable water filling stations and this is good tasting water. Our site was mostly dirt. Any gravel once there has long since been covered with dirt. The site was not quite level side to side but it didn't take much to level up. We were 2 sites down from the bath house. I picked up the free WiFi at the bathhouse in the evening and held it all the way back to our site. But I couldn't pick it up from our site again in the morning. The campground host site was just behind us and there is free coffee in the morning any time after 7am along with local information and the weather channel radio playing. There is a laundry in the East Campground at $2.50 in coin each for washer and dryer. You can take a walking path to Fort Wilkins or walk across Highway 41 to a platform to view the Cooper Harbor Lighthouse. This is quite a nice state park. We've found a lot to like about Michigan State Parks overall.

This was the most expensive campground of any we stayed in over a two week trip. We found it in a large advertisement in a Wisconsin campground book from a visitor center. We hadn't read any reviews since our stop was spur of the oment and we had no mobile data service to research. Had we, this might not have been a place we'd stop. Most definitely this is a place for children's entertainment and is more than 50% seasonal folks. Most of the children's stuff seemed shut down for the season. We were placed in a short spot by the bathhouse. The sites are so close, the house, yes house, window behind us looked directly into our back window, just a few feet away. No privacy at all. We were put on the edge of the seasonal section and the folks who are there don't stick to the park's quiet hours. I'm not talking kids, but adults who talked and laughed loudly until midnight at least. We heard a train a few times. Luckily, there were no auto races being run nearby or no telling how late quiet hours might have begun. But, in the morning light, I realized they'd placed us on a site near the bathhouse for our convenience. The bathhouse was quite nice and clean. Our short motorhome did fit on the short gravel/dirt site. We had full hookups and cable TV, though a good portion of the stations still came in snowy, not all watchable. The interior roads, though bumpy and dirt, accommodated our small rig just fine. I like the security gate system as well. I think we might have found something flatter and less oriented toward children had we planned better but the folks here treated us well and were very friendly and kind. Their campground is clean and certainly has every kind of entertainment to be had for families with little ones - in season, of course. The fact that we were near the center of the Dells with easy access in made the location a good one as well. This was an ok stop.

You have to know this Park is here because there are no signs along the road. Mounds Park Road appears out of nowhere and, if you don't catch that turn, turning a rig around down the road is almost impossible. So watch carefully. After climbing a hill (mound?), we got to the campground which was pretty full, surprisingly. But there aren't many campgrounds here. We did get a site right next to the bathhouse, #28, but it had another name reserved on it. Back to the ranger station. They forgot to remove the card for folks who never showed up. Back to the site, only to find it was on a severe downhill slant. With no onboard leveling system, we used every board we had and still never really got level. Once finally settled, we really liked the site which came with electric. All sites are woodsy and private. We picked up about 20 over the air TV channels. The bathhouse is big and well maintained. The showers are large with a changing area but no curtain between shower and changing space. The weather radio plays in the bathhouse. The roads are easy to drive through, regardless of rig size, no overhanging branches and no cars forced to park on the road. We didn't use the dump station but there is potable water there to take on, if needed. Overall a nice spot.The only thing I didn't like is we had to buy a state park pass of $11 to enter and then we paid $33 for the night as out of staters. Instate folks pay $23. That's no way to encourage people to come to your state. Not a fan of this practice, WI. That's not how your neighbors treat their guests.

With an experience at another national campground where we barely got the last site mid afternoon still in our minds, we arrived late morning to secure a spot. It was after Labor Day but these parks are very popular. The ranger at the Visitor Center in Munising gave us directions and said in Summer, folks are lined up in the morning for sites and they are full often by 9am. It was 10am. We drove directly here to be sure. The roads are wide and open for easy driving by any size rig. There are sites along the Lake, the most popular for sure. Most of those are reservable and most of those sites were already reserved. A second loop away from the water had lots of open spots. We found a site near the end of the water loop that was deep, pretty wide, part in the shade and mostly level for our 25' motorhome to easily back into and be well off the road. We left a tarp lashed to the lantern pole along with our registration sheet to prove the site was taken before we left for the day. National Park campgrounds require something be left on the site to hold your registration if you leave or you could return to someone else in your site. The roads are wide, tree limbs cut back from the road and are an easy drive for even the largest rigs. In this Park, we found no rules that said generators couldn't be used so we assume they can. This park is totally dry camping with only a toilet or two as amenities. There are fees to take on fresh water as well as a dumping fee which was surprising until I found a third party management company appears to manage the facilities for the Park Service. Even so, with so much to see and do in the Munising area, I clearly see why this inexpensive National campground is so popular.

This facility is in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore of Michigan's UP. One mile off H58 sits this tiny gem. Watch for the one sign on the road for the turnoff or you could miss it. The road off H58 is only one mile long but it's a pretty bumpy, hard packed dirt road that jostled us pretty well. While there is a host on site in the campground, there is no ranger station. You self register here. You find an open spot then complete a form with payment inside that is dropped into a receptacle, cash or check accepted. One portion is pinned to your site post to show the site is taken. If you spend more than one night and leave for day trips, leave something in the campsite proving it is occupied, like a screen house, chairs, tarps, etc. The registration slip on the post is not enough by itself to hold your site and you could return to someone else on your site. We arrived on a Monday in early September at about 3:30p, thinking we'd have no trouble finding a place. Wrong. We got the last open site. We found a way to park up on top of a hill and still be level, but it was a squeeze. Their website says they are so popular, you should arrive mid morning to find a site and I now believe them. There is a beautiful though rocky and windy beach to walk and enjoy and the campground sits high above that in a sandy, woodsy forest. Our site was quite near the staircase down to the beach and it's a good idea to use the stairs. People run down the tall, sandy dunes but that is causing terrible erosion to the dunes which are falling away. We set our chairs out at the edge of the woods on the top of the dunes and waited for the sun to set. Cameras and tripods in hand, we captured a beautiful sunset to remember our night here. This is also a very active bear area. We didn't see any but there are metal food boxes scattered about for those in tents to stash their food. You do need to be bear aware here. This was a great find.

This is a family owned gem we found along Hwy 17, easy access to enter and leave. It sits on the North shore of Lake Huron and has a pristine beach with outdoor shower and beautiful access to this lake. We grabbed photos of the last of that night's sunset which was stunning. We were given a drive-through site that was quite easy to enter though not level front to back. We used three boards to raise the front to level and it was simple enough. We had water and 30 amp electric. Behind us was a very nice shower house, 3 showers with changing sections. No bench but three hooks to hang things and good sized showers. Beside that was the laundry building, C$.75 per load. Very clean and there was a book exchange table. This is a lovely spot and there is a ton of seasonal campers here, many with pretty elaborate add-ons to their rigs. Very kind folks here, both owners and seasonals, and very reasonable rates. While you can hear traffic on Hwy 17 when outside, traffic is light and we heard nothing from inside the RV. Along with the rv sites there are 6 cabins that can be rented, four of which are directly on the beach. I'm sure these are very popular in the Summer. The dump station was easily accessed and well designed. The sewer opening is in great condition and is well below ground level allowing good flow. There is a long hose to help clean out but, oddly, it had a pipe threaded end, not a hose threaded end, so we had to carefully hold it in place. Yes, one wiggle of a hand and one of us did get a shower. Signs to entrance are few and the entrance pops up quickly. Make sure to spend time on the beach here. We couldn't find a website other than a Facebook page so finding this place online wasn't easy but we sure are glad to have found it. Great overnight stop.

We made a last minute decision to overnight somewhere in Ontario in what was supposed to only be a drive through to get to Michigan. We chose Parry Sound and this KOA, given its good reviews. Although ours was a quick one night, we very much liked the campground. The bathrooms and showers were extremely clean with very nice tile work and even music piped in. The showers each had a changing area as well as a soap dispenser on the wall. The one thing to watch for is the step in to the building which is a raised threshold that immediately drops again. You can trip if not careful. The pool looked a nice size for play, but maybe not for laps. Kids' play area looked like well maintained fun as did the small mini golf area. Even canine friends had a small fenced area to romp in. Our site was an easy back in, very level gravel. The only thing we had a smidge of difficulty with was the placement of the site numbers, on posts at the back of the site, not along the road. Since we arrived at dusk, that was a little hard to read but then, we also didn't need to try to negotiate around sign posts at the road edge in the oncoming dark either. Since the office was closed with no one to guide us, the map guided us to the right spot just fine. Much of the campground appears treed and shaded. We tried to find over the air digital stations but only located one and it had a telethon. So we pulled out our "Northern Exposure" season one dvds and laughed for an hour. The camp store isn't huge but is well supplied. Yes, there were train whistles in the night but since I use ear plugs, I heard nothing. My spouse heard them but was not bothered by them. So pack ear plugs if such sounds in the night bother you. We had no issues at all with the dump station, an easy drive in/out near the entrance. Overall, this is a fine stop for the area, very close to both Highway 400 and the town of Parry Sound. If we ever return to this beautiful part of the world, we'll surely stay here again.

We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday in Sept after spending time at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum about 15 miles away. We'd read about the Lower Falls campgrounds of Portage and Hemlock that provide electric, no water but with a dump station, and hoped we'd get a site. Not to worry. While Portage was nearly full, being nearer to the Lower Falls and more popular, Hemlock had plenty of open spots. On arrival, since we were out of state, we paid $31 for a state park passport which allowed us also to camp since we hoped to find other state camping spots within the next week. Normal overnight is $23. We parked in Hemlock #155 with 30 amp service. We're only 25 feet so backing in to this shorter site right across from the showers and toilets was easy and ideal. We haven't seen electric provided in a state park before so this was a luxury. The toilets were very clean and well kept. The showers have curtains with a separate changing area from the shower. The sites have large fire rings and well maintained picnic tables. While the sites are somewhat close, they were plenty big enough for slide outs and privacy. The campground is wooded and shady. No over the air TV to be had, of course. No wi-fi but we had some Verizon strength. The rangers are kind and very helpful. There aren't any printed rules provided on check in with quiet hours information and such but we assumed typical quiet hours and rules pertained. The pads are level gravel and grass and the roads are paved. This is really quite a pleasant place, quiet and worth the stopover, if there is space open. I'm sure this is a popular Summer destination in this area.

This is a very beautiful place, views of valleys, open sky, the lake, just stunning. We had full 30 amp hookup but had to be out on an open, unshaded hill to get it. Even though leveling boards were needed and we were parked out in the sun, the cool night air here let us sleep without a/c, even in July. No playground or pool and the lake was a little dark and scary for swimming for our little ones. Many other kids fished the lake and rode bikes. This is a quiet and beautiful place.We used it as our base while sightseeing and attending a family reunion and it was fine. Pay attention to the directions on their website to turn 1 mile from I88 or you will find yourself making an extreme, uphill right turn at the other end of the road. We bottomed out there and we don't have a long overhang. Bathrooms are rustic and clean.There are 3 horseshoe pits and wide open spaces, room for all. Nice folks.

It was hard for me to believe this is a state park. The attention to detail and cleanliness is superb while also preserving the beautiful woodsy environment. We were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sites and grounds. The campground is very quiet. Each site on the Magnolia loop has a fence around it which provides a sizeable parking site and a side area for fire ring and table. Our site was deep and easily accommodated our trailer and truck with an easy back in entry. We had plenty of room for our slideout, our awning and a separate screen room covering the table area. The Magnolia loop accommodates bigger rigs nicely while the Dogwood loop has smaller sized sites better for tents, pop-ups and small rigs. The public part of the park offers swimming and play areas and the Magnolia loop has a nice play area as well. Roads and sites are hard packed sand, relatively level, with water and electric. By the look of this place, it is hard to guess it was established in the 1930s and is one of the older parks in the state. The very clean showers (3) are large with separate dressing area and heat lamps above. We definitely would return.

While this may not be a destination Campground to many, it is a clean, well run and easily accessible place on a cute Lake and quite nice for our stopover. I95 is only 6/10s of a mile but not once were we disturbed by highway noise. The office is in a charming shrimp boat sitting on land with a tiny store in it. If you need parts or goods, you'll have to leave to find them. Brunswick is about 20 miles south and has every imaginable store or restaurant. Closer is Darien for the same. You need to arrive by 6pm when the office closes or make arrangements for late arrival. The campground is gated for security. The bathroom also has a code to get in. We were escorted to our pull through site. This is an older Campground and, as yet, cannot accommodate a really long RV so make sure your rig will fit. We pull a 31' travel trailer and had no trouble, though our truck had to be unhooked as it stuck out into the roadway a bit. Our truck and trailer total length is about 55 feet, to give you an idea. The roadways and sites are sand and pretty level. The place does have some seasonals but they were quiet and respectful folks. The only problem we saw was a car parked into the outbound roadway just opposite a large tree that made for a very narrow and tricky departure. We have decided this is the best stopover for us in future North-South trips for its ease of access, friendly and helpful folks and respectable price. We paid a good Sam rate.

This is the only campground anywhere near Georgetown, SC. On entering, the dirt road was rutted and washed out, very difficult to drive. We arrived after dark in the pouring rain but there was not one light on, not one sign for the office, bathrooms or showers. We called the phone and were told the owners were in town, not there, and we should walk around with a flashlight and find a site that was not flooded. As for signing in, they said they'd catch up to us in the morning. There was a terrible smell in the air and, the next day, we learned the campground is downwind of a huge paper mill. If there was a bathhouse/showers, we never found it. At the end of the campground road was the marina. The emphasis here is definitely on those who will put up with the campground in order to use the marina and fish. There are no amenities for campers, no tables, no shade. The hookups are so close to the ground that it is almost impossible to make sewer, electric or water connections. We chose our site well since the next morning all sites around us were flooded and the water had not yet reached our door. This place is very flat and on the Sampit River, prone to flooding and they claimed they'd just spent lots to have their road repaired from recent floods. In the morning, we called the owner again to try to pay her. The lady told us they were still not in the campground to help us check out and pay. She told us to put our $36 in cash in an envelope and put it in the mailbox. We tried to at least leave a check so we'd have some proof we'd paid but she wouldn't accept it. I still don't know if they accept credit cards as we never did find the office or the owner. We did as told but not before writing a note and taking a photo of it and the actual cash as proof that we did pay her. Locals told us this campground is not in a good part of Georgetown. Avoid this place entirely unless you are coming just for the fishing.

The entry top the campground off of PA100 is well marked but use great caution. It is at the bottom of a steep hill. Likewise be careful when entering PA100 on departur cats come around the corner fast. This is a lovely wooded campground of cabins and sites along a small stream. Very clean bathrooms though showers under the office are smaller than the 2 in the outside building. Two play grounds, minigolf, banana trikes for rent, nice pool, super staff and owners who really care for the place and their guests. Well stocked camp store, nice arcade area, laundry, some seasonals. Very popular weekend so phone ahead if you can. We arrived a day early and they found a comfortable temporary spot for us to overnight despite being fully booked. This is the first time we've stayed in the campground the whole time rather than going out to putto nd things do and we've camped 40+ years. Very nice for families, couples, groups, singles. The only negative is the narrow sites and having to share the space between with your neighbors.
