This a is a very nice RV resort that is slowly being developed. The site are level and have plenty of room for outside activities around the RV. The sites are well spaced so one feels like they have their own quiet camp ground. The only drawback is the lack of cell phone service in this area of Michigan and cable TV is not available. Local broadcast stations are limited so plan on using a satellite system of some type is TV is important. The resort is split into 2 sections one is Class A only and another section, which is well away from the Class A section, that is more like a state park and open to all types of camping. This park is close to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore and Glen Arbor. Leelanau County has plenty to do from great beaches, shopping, and scenic drives. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the better RV Parks we have stayed in with friendly lot owners. The campground owner is also very friendly with first hand knowledge of things to see and do in the area. Lots of social gatherings available with no hard sell trying to get us to buy a lot, which was very nice. Utilities were great, but no cable since it isn't available in the area. A few TV stations were available by antenna. Good location to see the area. Great layout with the ownership park separated from the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fantastic park! We stayed here 4 nights and loved it. The park was clean, well maintained and very quiet. The sites are huge with plenty of space between them. All of the pads are level and although they are all back-in sites, the roads are plenty wide to make maneuvering easy. The resort is not complete; there were no bathrooms or other facilities available without walking to the main office building. The staff was great, they even delivered firewood to my site. This park was very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes and the local beaches but only a short 25 minutes from Traverse City. The country setting was ideal. We would definitely stay again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We traveled throughout Michigan for a couple of weeks in July and this was one of the top two parks we stayed at. Registration was quick and the service was unmatched. They deliver wood to your site whenever you order it and only charge for the wood itself. The staff is constantly making sure guests have a pleasant experience. We stayed at the Class A resort area and the spaces were spacious and the grass surrounding the site was green and well kept. At night they kept youngsters and adults entertained with different activities. The night we arrived they had karaoke night. The restrooms were clean. If you are visiting the Sleeping Bear area, this resort is centrally located so you can drive to the park, and other nice areas like Glen Arbor and Glen Haven. I definitely recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Normally we would not pay this much for a campground, but they had a great deal of buy 2 get 2 free. So it only worked out to $30. Per night and is a very nice resort for that price. Would have given a 10, but restrooms were a bit of away from campground and could use some updating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were nice, grassy with cement slabs. Wi-Fi worked but we only received two channels and sometimes not even that. The people in the office were nice. Convenient to the Sleeping Bear National Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Please be aware that there are two separate parks at this location--Indigo Bluffs RV Rental Park which accepts different types of rigs, and Indigo Bluffs Motorcoach Resort which is for Class A only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice RV resort. Quiet with little lighting at night for great star gazing. Pads are made to look like stone (very nice). Hookups are at the correct location and work great. Most sights are spaced far apart with wild flowers between each. This is a class A resort only however, some units were older. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely RV resort with a unique layout. The "pads" are stamped and stained concrete with plenty of width and length to accommodate any size RV. The park is VERY quiet and secluded, but they've only been open for about three months and have yet to build a clubhouse or private restrooms. If you want to use a restroom, you must either walk a LONG way to the restroom at the pool up front OR one of the two restrooms in the old campground next door - and they were dirty! I'd like to visit again in a year or two when they're further along with their building process. VERY nice park overall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is really 2 parks in one. We were in the new section for Class A's only for 10 nights. We had friends in the old section in 5er's and travel trailers. That section has pull through sites, but has a lot of trees making satellite reception impossible on some sites. I agree with most of the prior comments. There are no bath houses in the new portion. It is assumed you will use your MH. As to the "Relatively remote location," I don't understand the comment. There was plenty to do in the area and Empire is only 3 miles away. Several other towns are within 12 miles. The beach at Empire is a great place to go watch the sunset on the lake. Traverse City is about 20 miles east. We could have stayed 10 more nights and still have found plenty to do and places to eat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Class A ownership lot prices for a class C resort. Yes, the class A sites are really nice, but you share the pool with the not-as-nice Sleeping Bear Campground now owned by the same developer. The campground was renamed Indigo Bluffs Rally Park. The "state-of-the-art fitness center" has 1-treadmill, 1-elliptical, and six free weights (2-10lbs, 2-5lbs, 2-3lbs; yes, that's it!. There is no gate or fence to separate the campground from the Class A ownership sites, so the campground kids overrun the Indigo Bluffs Class A section with bikes, pets, etc. with no supervision. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a brand new motor coach resort that just opened. They are still building it. There are only about 40 sites right now, but there may be many more in the end. There is no club house built yet. But there is a campground office with store, two exercise machines, and a new pool. The staff manager is super friendly. They deliver wood, matches, and fire starter to your site for a small fee. All the motor coach sites are beautiful stamped concrete with full 50 amp hookups. All sites are provided with 2 very nice recliner chairs and portable fireplace. We attended the sales presentation and received 2 nights free with additional nights at 50% off. The water feature is a man made lake with waterfall. Beautiful common area with chairs, umbrella, and accent night lighting. This resort deserves a 10 for the quality of each individual site. There is a lot more that is needed in order to compete with the other "motor coach resorts" of Northern Michigan, such as a real clubhouse, a full gym, more water features, more golf course type green grass and a gate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the newest 'ownership' RV resorts in upper Michigan. Probably the third best RV resort in this area. Good: Pristine facility, new, interesting site arrangement. Nice Wi-Fi, pool, clubhouse etc. Bad: Relatively remote location, but beautiful surroundings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Actually 2 different CG's in one place. The old Sleeping Bear is quite nice but the new section called Indigo Bluffs is wonderful. Restricted to new Class A motorhomes each site has full hookups, concrete pad and patio. They are trying to sell lots but for right now you can stay at a very very reasonable rate. Saturday night they provided supper, entertainment, and marvelous conversation. Sunday breakfast was provided. If I was interested in purchasing an RV site in MI this would be at the top of the list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a well kept up campground...the workers that run the place are very helpful about the local area. Lots of shade. The only bad I can see about this place is poor reception on the TV and the water pressure is a little weak. I would most definitely stay again. We stayed here for eight nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Please take note that Indigo Bluffs is really two RV parks right next to each other. They are run together from the same office. Indigo Bluffs RV Resort is for Motor Homes only. Indigo Bluffs RV Park (Rally Park on their web site) is for everyone. We stayed exclusively at the Rally Park. EVERY site was fully shaded. The employees showed us to our site and helped us back in. There is a very nice concrete pad on some sites. This is very helpful because it is very sandy. The restrooms were tidy, but we didn't use the showers as they were pay showers. This was a very quiet campground. Also note that the, beautiful, pool is closed to children from 12 pm to 2 pm daily. The only dumpsters were at the front of the park, but if you left your trash out in the morning, it was collected for you. They would also deliver your firewood. Some of the websites I visted showed this campground far to the East. It really is 3 miles East of Empire. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Paid $43 for full hookup, pull-through site with Good Sam Discount. Overall a very nice place to stay, with gravel sites and concrete pad for picnic bench. No cable TV and very little capable on antenna. Good Wi-Fi reception. Very clean restroom facility. Coin operated showers ($.25 cents for 4-5 minutes). A little out of the way but a very peaceful location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park, with nice sites and easy access around the campground. The people who run it are wonderful, very helpful with information around the area. Really anything you need. Great place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent two months here. This park is under new ownership with a great manager and staff. New owner is building a luxury, Class A ownership park adjacent to the present campground: so there is some construction issues and noise. Park has feel of real "camping" with thick forested sites, fire rings and picnic tables. A downside is the dirty, black sand which when wet gets all over everything and when dry seems to pervade every nook and cranny. Would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our maiden voyage in our new trailer last year. It was a nice campground. Staff friendly, pool clean, our site was a good size. Being a new camper, I didn't have any problem leveling my trailer, nor getting into the space. I would stay here again. The area is beautiful, and we really enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just returned from this area on 7/21/02. We were extremely disappointed in this campground. The grounds are not what you would expect for $38 a night. The swimming pool is very small. The pool is up front and not very close to the campsites The road you have to walk to get to the pool looks like a garbage dump. The bathrooms are clean, but not very good showers and toilets. Also the showers are pay showers. and the timers
are fast. You think for the money they charge you wouldn't have to bring a hand full of Quarters with you. We camped here in a camper.
