Very friendly and helpful owners. Family orientated with train rides, campfires, programs. Good Wi-Fi. Lots of shade. We were there on our way to Mackinaw City. Houghton Lake beautiful and a Camping World close by. Hope that we are in Michigan to stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is typical of small parks taking advantage of the tourist season. There was a nice looking pool and large campground for the kids. If you have kids and were there in a small RV or pop-up it would be great - except for the price. The grass pull-throughs on the first row are quite roomy, but getting there is not much fun. The trees along the interior roads have not been trimmed back in quite some time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground near the interstate. Some road noise. Some seasonal sites. We stayed 1 night. Showers & restrooms old, but clean. Sites were level. We were there towards the end of the season, but looked like they had a nice pool, playground and gave train rides through the summer. We would go back again for a longer stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
(Rate based on a couple nights with the Passport Discount). The good: Fast & reliable Wi-Fi - best we've seen in a long time. Close access to Houghton Lake, especially if you have a boat. Family friendly - the weekend we stayed the park was doing a summer Halloween party with trick or treating, Karaoke, hayrides, costume contests, etc. There was no "kid-tax" for groups bigger than 2 adults per site. The owners also discouraged local "Bud-bashers" from camping here in order to keep the atmosphere quiet and reasonable which we appreciated. We met several of the many seasonal residents and they were friendly and conversational. Our spot was shady all day & we enjoyed nice breezes. The not-so-good: We came in after a recent heavy rain & park entrance/roads are muddy gravel so lots of puddles. The utilities on the site were on the passenger side - doable, but oddly placed. A previous review mentions upgrading of utilities but we didn't see evidence of that - only a couple spots with full hookups are available. Bathroom and showers aren't being kept clean - floors are muddy and littered. The shower water has an odor. The park also charges a $3/day fee to use A/C. Lots of standing water around the park means lots of bugs. Overall (from a park maintenance & upkeep perspective) it just feels like a place where the minimum amount of work to keep it going is being done, without much pride in the outcome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites were likely laid out several decades ago, so the width is tight now with slideouts. Only 1 section of full hookups. OK for a couple of nights. Access to Houghton Lake across the road for boating, but no beach here. Just your basic northern campground, with majority seasonals, and a couple of large grassy areas for playground/sports. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an older campground with grass sites, dirt roads, and fairly close sites and a lot of full timers. The showers are individual rooms that looked rather old, so we didn't use them. The bathrooms were clean and freshly painted. The rate is the Passport rate with an additional $3/day for A/C. We stayed here 3 days. An okay place for a short stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park has new owners. The new owners are very friendly. Park is being upgraded with all new water, sewer, and 50 amp electric service. Quiet family atmosphere. State boat launch within walking distance across the street. I will stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
