When I wrote the initial review for this park last year, I mentioned that we would have stayed a second day except for a bad weather forecast. This year we stayed two days the second weekend in July. We again had a FHU waterfront site with the front of our RV 15' from the shore of the water. Technically it is Cedarville Bay, but it is actually on the shore of Lake Huron. As is becoming too common, we were unable to connect to their free Wi-Fi, but were able to connect to another network in the evenings. No cable TV, but most sites are satellite friendly. There is an extra $2.50/day charge for A/C usage (or any other high wattage appliance). As I mentioned previously, about 20 sites are individually owned. Additionally, another 20 or so sites are occupied by seasonal/extended stay customers. So, on any given night in season, calling ahead for reservations is recommended. Cedarville has a couple restaurants and a decent supermarket less than a mile from the park. On a July weekend, I saw only 2 sites with families with kids. Most customers were retired couples. This is a nice, quiet, relaxing park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As a retired full timing couple we like certain things in a park and this park fits most of our likings. Pros - Very quiet. No trains. Little noise from the closest highway SR34. Mostly older campers at this time of year. Very nice grassy sites with few bare spots. It's like camping on a lawn. Water view from just about everywhere in the park. Back in sites at the edge of Lake Huron cost $10 more but are worth it. No swimming pool or playground equals few kids. Did I say it was nice and quiet? Very good satellite reception. Some shade in the late afternoon on the west side of campground. Cons - Fire rings. I don't mind the fire but the smoke is irritating so they are a con. No separate dog walk area. Wi-Fi is slow. Water pressure drops often. Poor phone reception on Verizon. Utility hook ups have long stretch for water and electric. I had a 50 foot 30 amp. cord so it worked but my 30 foot 50 amp. cord couldn't reach. All in all the pros out weigh the cons and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is difficult to rate. The lots in the front of the park are tight and the backs overlap. Lots 10-22 are on the water with great views. However, on these lots the hook-ups are on the wrong side unless you have a motorhome and drive in frontwards. You will need long hoses and power cords. The Wi-Fi is not reliable. We rented a lot from an owner for a month. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed the park. The owner and seasonal residents are very friendly. The laundry room was clean and reasonably priced. Some of the sites had a long reach for the utilities. The water and electric were good and it is satellite friendly. The protected waters of Lake Huron are safe for a small boat. This is mainly an adult park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am really surprised that this park has not been previously reviewed. It is about 30 miles east of St. Ignace, MI, not far from many local tourist destinations. If I have listed any of the above information incorrectly, please feel free to correct it. We stayed here one weekday night and had a FHU, pull-in lakefront site. We would have stayed a second night, but heavy rain was being predicted for the next day. Decided to pay a little extra for the spot just 10' from the water. Lots are for sale at this park and about 20 have been sold so far. Thus, at this time, there only about 35 sites available to rent. Most sites are shown as back-ins but some may be pull-throughs if both "in-line" sites are vacant when you arrive. Everything worked fine and the setting right on Lake Huron was great. Most sites appear to be satellite friendly. Great park for boaters and fishermen as the park has its own dock. Other than being right on the lake, there isn't much for kids to do in the park. As somebody who seldom complains about local noise disrupting their sleep, I must admit that I was jolted awake several times in the middle of the night by screeching sea gulls. That's a first. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The location of this campground is very nice, right on the water, and they have plenty of land; it's too bad they didn't use it to spread out the campsites. We were parked awning to awning, way too close for us. True, the view of the water is very nice, but to see it you have to be at the edge of your site. Wi-Fi is available at a price and the signal was not strong. Our Verizon signal faded in and out, too. Not much going on in Cedarville. We would not come back again, primarily because of the sites being too close. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate was for Passport America, however, we were able to use PA for only 4 nights, not a week as specified in the PA book. We did not use the bathrooms or showers, so no comment. We were assigned a very nice pull-in site overlooking the bay, which we enjoyed looking at out of our windshield. We had a lot of privacy and some shade trees on our west side. Site was hard-packed grass. Our electric and water hookups were on the wrong side of our rig but that was no problem for us. However, the sewer was also on the wrong side but impossible for us to reach with our hoses. We realize owners have to compromise hookup locations to accommodate 5th wheels, trailers, or motorhomes. We noticed other sites' sewer locations would also be challenging for any type of rig unless they had a LOT of hose. This campground is convenient for touring the eastern area of the U.P. One drawback: the mosquitoes were bad, however we found out that there was an over-abundance of the pests all over the country! Oh yes, we had visitors to our site; deer and sandhill cranes. No loons though. We will visit again providing we can us PA. We travel in a 33' rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice low key campground right on Lake Huron. The sites right on the lake are full hookup, the interior sites are water & electric only. There is a nice bathroom & showerhouse but it's about 50 yards away from the w & e sites. We stayed Memorial Day weekend and it wasn't busy due to the cool & wet weather this year. We used it as a base to visit Ste St Marie, Drummond Island & Mackinac Island. We would stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our kayaking group was in the area, so I stayed here, and found it a quiet and beautiful park! As others have mentioned, the sites are a bit close: but the view is awesome! This area is Paddler's Heaven; the islands are beautiful and protected enough for recreational kayaks to venture out. The Park Host let us leave our kayaks on the grassy lawn at the water's edge, which was nice! The pier makes for a pleasant view, and the beach/swim area was nice and sandy for kids to play in. The restrooms and showers are spotless; the sites are level and grassy with a bit of shade provided by a smattering of mature trees. I think the WiFi deliberately cuts out after a certain time period, but reconnecting was quick. I had no problems downloading pictures of our trip. Cedarville and the neighboring town of Hessel are fun and quaint. I will make a point of coming back to Loon's Point next year!! The only downside (and it's really minor): overflow parking for extra vehicles (or my kayak trailer) is on the north side of the bathrooms, and that's a longish walk and out-of-sight. Didn't seem like a security issue, however; since the whole RV Park is well off the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a quiet clean park. We had a water view site with some shade trees. Sites were a little close but you had room in back with a killer view. We would stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of our favorite parks on the Upper Peninsula. It's on a bay looking out at Les Cheneaux Islands. The park is at the end of a private road, very secluded, yet near Cedarville where there is a good grocery store, drug store, hardware store, and basic hometown restaurants. The bath house and laundry are very clean. They're located a bit of a walk away from the main camping area. Access is secured via a number key pad. There was a small fee for Wi-Fi but the connection was reliable and available 24/7. The park is very well maintained; the sand on the beach is raked daily and Adirondack chairs are placed along the shore line for guests. We highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice quiet park. Nice, friendly, helpful hosts. Grass, level sites. Campground has its own beach and boat dock. Restroom and shower are large and clean. Only one washer and dryer. Close to town with grocery, food, gas, hardware store. Definitely will return. Rate is Passport America for Premium waterfront. 9 of 10 because of small laundry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
