$22 per night was for 30/50 amp electric only. MI requires non-residents to purchase an annual recreation passport for $30.50 (which we had done at a previous MI state park) plus $6.30 for a vehicle pass for each park, which was good for our week long stay. This park is located on the Green Bay portion of Lake Michigan with a row of sites right on the shoreline. The beach was nice. Spacing between sites was roomy and most sites were level, which allows some leeway for parking in any direction. All sites have beautifully maintained grass and trees on them. Most sites have some shade but some are in full sun. Water is available throughout the park and the dump station is located at the entrance/exit area. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Recreational opportunities are available in the park as well as in the local area. The park volunteer group is very active and it shows as there are many activities and the park is almost pristine in appearance. It is about a mile and a half to where WiFi is available at the township building as AT&T cell service was just three bars of Edge at the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.

JW Wells is a former CCC camp. We camped in site #4, a 30A site on Lake Michigan. Though the campground was full, the weekend we stayed, it was hard to tell. It was very quiet. There are modern shower facilities and a great central play area for kids. Plus a beach is within walking distance. However, there is no more camp WiFi and our Verizon cell and data were marginal. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Wow. We were traversing the shoreline of northern Green Bay looking for a waterfront campground to park at for a few days. After passing some of the county parks that just weren't all that attractive, we pulled in here. We were greeted by a very friendly young lady in the office, who offered us a waterfront spot. It was a perfect spot that we could pull in parallel to the waterfront creating our own private oasis of awesome. By the way - you only need to pay an entrance fee on your towed vehicle if you plan to drive it in/out of the park separately - and then it's only $6 for the entire STAY, not per day. If you're planning to just stay put in the park, you only need to have a passport ($29/annual for all MI State Parks for non-residents, or $8/day) on your camping unit. We bought the annual pass, as we plan to stay in a few MI State Parks during our time in the state. We enjoyed impressive sun and moon rises, sounds of waves gently crashing, birds chirping and butterflies buzzing us. We also enjoyed the hiking trail that starts past the swimming beach, as well as some wading in the lake. The level of relaxation we got at this location was indescribable. Probably one of our favorite camp locations in our 6 years of full time RVing. That's saying a lot - we've been to some amazing places! The sites are a mix of 50A electric and non-electric. There is no water or sewer at any site - so make sure you utilize their very well designed dump station on your way in to dump/fill up. Most of the sites are just grassy, which is nice as you can angle your rig to the best view. Their bathhouse is top notch, as is all of the other amenities in the park. Both AT&T and Verizon had usable but not great signals, which was our only downside. We did sniff a faint LTE signal on Verizon, so suspect they are upgrading the area? That would make this place absolutely divine. We would definitely come back here in a heartbeat. We were actually sad to leave... our next stop just didn't stand a chance at comparing. We'll be dreaming about this place for a long long time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
