The park was o.k., but it was very confusing to get a site. No direction signs to point you to an entrance. I should have checked RV Park Reviews before I stopped here, but I didn't. Wouldn't have stayed if I had checked. At least the owners have made some improvements since the previous reviews, but they have a long way to go. No office. Self register at the bath house, but the bath house is at the rear of the park. There is a map at the bath house, but again, it is at the rear of the park. If you drive in with the little red cabin on your right, just pull into an empty site on your left, then fill out the registration form. If you go to the bath house first, you'll have to turn around. Don't hit the big billboard!! Lots of road noise from I-75, so you'll likely stay inside your coach. All sites appear to be full hookups with 2 sewer connections. My site was so unlevel I had to move my coach 3 times to get it leveled. Antenna pulled in a good number of stations. No wifi. No fenced dog area. The park is at the end of a mile and a half long, packed sand road. Several permanent residents with beat up RVs. The teenager and his dad (?) who stopped a few times to see if I needed help were very nice. Might have been owners or employees. Just stopped for a night, but I don't think I would stay here again.

Nice long and wide sites, easy in and out. Roads are packed sand. Zero road noise. No fenced dog area, but enough interior roads to walk. Sites are sandy with grass. Wifi was fine for email and Facebook. Water pressure was adequate. Antenna channels were few. There are a lot of trees so a portable satellite would be good. If fixed, maybe the office can assign you an appropriate site. Lots of seasonal and permanent rigs, some in disrepair. Fishing available on the river bank. Nearest WalMart is about 10 miles away in Crestview. Lots of restaurants there, too. I would stay here again.

PA rate. Pretty much a gravel parking lot, but it was for only 1 night, so not a big deal. Site was about 50' long. Parked my truck in the visitor's parking area. Took some adjusting to get into my pull thru site. There is not a lot of distance between sites and the road is not overly wide, but manageable. Water pressure was good. Wifi was adequate for email and such. No antenna channels came in clear enough to watch. Friendly staff and neighbors. O.k. for an overnight or a few days.

The value wasn't "bad", but I think the place is overpriced for what you get. Unreliable park wifi, meager water pressure, loud trains at night/early in the morning. I thought the water pressure problem was with my coach, but the next park we stayed at had great pressure, so it wasn't my coach. If you have a fifthwheel, you're better off pulling as far into your site as possible and parking behind your coach if there is room, unless you face the center road. To park in front of sites that face the outer road, you are supposed to drive nearly around the entire park to get to the front of your site. They do not want you driving thru an empty site and only the center road is 2-way. The staff is friendly and they pick up your trash if you put it at the front of your site. Cable worked well. They have a nice fenced dog park. Other than the trains, it is a pretty quiet place.

Not sure why people rate this park so high. Differences of opinion I guess. It is a basic campground with back-in sites on the blind side. Yes, it has nice big sites and is quiet. If that is all it takes to rate a campground high, well there you go. Most sites are sloped to the rear. Water pressure was very good. The grass at my site needed cutting. No wifi, weak antenna tv signals. Knowledgeable check-in staff. Lots of deer in the park. Had a skunk come thru my site one evening. Glad I saw him before he saw me. Narrow loop roads and some trees on those loop roads need trimming. Directions on the park's site take you across the dam. Instead of that, it is easier to turn right at the Walmart (N Central St) once you get off the highway, then 1/4 mile past Walmart (keep Walmart on your right) turn left at the first stop sign (Rend Lake Rd). Follow that road about 5 miles to the park entrance. There is one 90 degree turn (Rend Lake Rd becomes Mine 24 Rd) about 1/4 mile after you make the first left. Other than that turn, there are 2 stop signs and VERY little traffic. The camp entrance will be on your right.

Vast majority of sites appear to be seasonal/permanent. All back-in sites are on the blind side. Some sites are easier to back into than others. Cable worked well. WiFi was o.k. for email and Facebook. No fenced dog area. Concrete pad was long enough for my 6-pt level up, and my long bed truck still fit within the driveway.

Rate averaged for our stay including PA discount. Nice quiet park with some quirky hookups. Sites are long but designed for 2 rigs end to end. If you get to the site first, you can pull thru. If not, you back in. If the first rig is not forward enough, your connections may not reach the pedestal and you'll have to ask for another site. Getting another site is usually not a problem since this place is so big and has so many sites. 4 rigs can connect to the same power and water pedestal. Your water and power connection may be on the passenger side of the coach. All utilities are at the rear of the site. Water pressure and volume were good. Roads are gravel. No fenced dog area. I walked my dog up and down all the roads and it took me a little more than 30 min. Wifi worked well for email and Facebook. Antenna picked up several stations. When you turn off Rt 151 onto C St, get ready for a LOT of porpoising. The concrete road surface is fine, but the slabs are VERY uneven. At least it is only a 1/4 mile to the park entrance. Would stay here again if in the area.

Easy to drive around the park with a large 5th wheel and crew cab truck. Long sites on a slight angle makes backing easy if you have a back-in site. Decent water pressure, decent WiFi speed and good WiFi signal strength. Cable TV worked well. No fenced dog run. 5 MPH speed limit (ridiculously low) that doesn't seem to be followed or enforced. Good park overall. Would stay here again.

First time at a casino RV park. Just off the highway but no highway noise. Paved road and concrete pads. Pads are no more than 40' long. Some appear to be a little shorter. I parked my truck in the parking lot. 30 amp and 20 amp service. Some sites are level, others are slanted. Utilities are shared between sites, so sites face opposite directions. Some sites had a picnic table. This place has been just as good as some RV parks we have stayed at, but at a much lower price. Very few antenna channels. No WiFi at park, but there is WiFi at the hotel lobby. Too bad the lobby is on the opposite side of the property from the RV sites. Very smokey in the casino as you walk through to the hotel registration desk. Never found a trash dumpster, but there are a few trash cans in the park. Only dumpster I saw was cardboard only. Casino's golf course and driving range is adjacent to the RV sites. Would stay here again if passing through and the temps were not too high.

The park is not bad, but I think it is overpriced for what is provided. Rate is the average for our stay, including the PA discount. No channels on the antenna, no cell service and no wifi in the campground. Wifi was available at the office, but the office is not that close to the sites. I hate it when parks advertise wifi, but are not specific about where it is available. I think being in the valley is what prevents antenna tv and cell service. The park is very quiet. Vast majority of campers appear to be seasonal. Sites are back ins. Electric hookup is the old fuse type panel. I hate plugging in and not being able to turn the power off before inserting the plug. Water hookup was a weird straight up vertical connection. People are friendly. No fenced dog run, but plenty of walking spaces available. Appeared everyone picked up after their pets. That was good to see. If you want to see Minneapolis, it is an hour away. If I had my own sat tv and hotspot, I would rate this place a 5. Regardless, I would not stay here again. I think it is too expensive for what you get and the rural location. If you're looking for a quiet place and don't care about tv, wifi or cell service, you might like it here.

Very quiet park with long, wide, and level back-in full hookup sites. Water pressure was about 50 PSI. Grass was soft. WiFi was adequate. Sites 4 and 6 probably get the best signal. Antenna pulled in 6-8 stations. Boy Scouts offer firewood for sale on site. No fenced dog area, but plenty of space to walk your dog. Poo bags are provided at the self-registration kiosk. Reserve online. If you're within the 2-week reservation window, you have to call for a reservation. If you're an ATVer, this park is right along an ATV trail. Surprisingly it was not noisy. ATVs can be rented in the larger town of Hayward, about 30 min east. Minong is a small town, but it has the basics.

I have to balance my opinion on this park with the fact it was only $10 a night with the Passport America discount for a full-hookup site. If not for that, my rating would be lower. No full-time host at this city park. All sites are back-in unless there is no one in the site behind yours, then you can drive through that site and pull into yours. Water pressure was 40+ PSI, but volume seemed a bit low. WiFi does not cover the park, so if you want WiFi, get a site close to the office. Antenna picked up only 4 channels and they came in weak. Never had that happen before. Mosquitoes were real bad. Cell service was spotty. The town of Gwinn has the basics. This place is good for an overnight or a few days. I paid for 7 days and left after 5. Would not stay here again. Munising and Marquette have so much more it would be worth the extra cost to me.

Rate reflects average cost with PA discount and non-discount days. Registration was fast. Had very little interaction with camp staff after that. Big park with a lot of sites. Loop road is new asphalt. Outer loop road appears to be oil covered gravel. Inner roads are gravel. Not all fhu sites include cable, so if you want cable, be sure to ask. Not sure if cable is available with PA rate. Water pressure was about 42 psi until the weekend when more campers arrived, then the pressure dropped to about 30 psi. Wifi was adequate for email and Facebook. Lots of trees that may interfere with satellite. Not everyone follows the dog leash rules or the 10 mph speed limit. No fenced dog area despite what the park map shows. Nice mountain bike skills park. Lots of walking/biking/atv trails just off the park grounds. Would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Really nice campground, quiet and away from town at the end of a dead end road. Very few kids. All sites are back-in with plenty of distance between sites on either side. Center row sites will allow RVs to back in further than perimeter sites. No parking vehicles on the grass. If you have a long 5er (or toy hauler with rear patio) and crew cab long bed, you may want a center site, that way you can back up further into the site. Loop road and all sites are paved. 2 walking/bike trails. 1 is short and goes along the canal toward the lake. The other is several miles long and starts across the road. No fenced dog area. Antenna pulled in a good number of channels. Free WiFi worked fairly well, not good enough for video steaming though. Water pressure was 45 PSI. Office will accept UPS/FedEx packages. Would stay here again if in the area.

For what you get, $28 a night is a bit expensive. Right off a main road, so there is some road noise, but traffic dies way down at night. Close to a hospital so an occasional life flight may fly over. One that happened during my stay did not wake me. Gravel throughout with a tree at almost every site. Easy in, easy out and level! Sites face each other. With 2 RVs facing each other, there is VERY little room between sites, so close awnings may overlap. If there is not an RV on your neighboring site, you'll have a lot of room. Some sites have a picnic table. There is a community fire pit. Antenna picked up several channels. Satellite should work well. Water pressure was over 40 psi. Speed limit is 5 mph. It is a bit too slow for an adult oriented park, but it would keep the dust down during dry spells. Town park with walking/biking path and lake fishing is next door. RV washing and light maintenance (like tire rotation) is allowed. My coach and truck were too long to be on the same site, but parking for my truck was very convenient. Free WiFi worked VERY well. Easy bicycling distance to downtown Lapeer. If you want a place to stop that does not have a lot of kids running around, this is it.
