If you like quiet this is the place to stay! Nice, small park directly on the shore of Lake Michigan. No cable TV, but over the air signals are available. No sewer at site, but they have a dump station. Nice owner, very accommodating. Since they cannot provide cable, the owner has a large selection of VHS tapes and DVDs available, a nice touch. Wi-Fi worked well. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful location with a great view of Lake Michigan and fairly close to Big Spring State Park. If there were sewer hookups, the rating would be a 10. We stay here whenever passing through the area just for the view. There are several videos available in the office and a book exchange. Very nice owner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A real gem for overnighters like us. Not exactly a 'campground'. Does have laundry facilities, though we didn't use them. Grass and gravel sites, many right on the shores of Lake Michigan. Owner very accommodating, directed us to our site. Quiet, relaxing, but not much to do. Perfect for us. Sites level. Water and electric good, voltage steady. Wi-Fi open, easy to connect, and reliable. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Low marks are for the lack of mowing, should be more of an 8. Sites are 30 amp and water only, most are backin sites, but some are setup so you can pull into them. Hookups are side by side for most sites. Although it is on the lake, price seems a bit high for this somewhat dated CG. No direct lake access. Verizon cell and broadband both very good, TV via batwing was also good, but we would lose the signal at times. As mentioned, the dump station is setup like a T. You pull in and turn right behind a cottage, then back up a bit to dump. After dumping you backup some more into the other half of the T and then pull out. Only 1 RV at a time can do this. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were looking for an overnight and found a terrific spot. The host was very friendly at check-in and offered movies and a book exchange. He showed us a long, grassy, level pull-through so we didn't have to unhook. We had a lovely view of Lake Michigan and found the 30 amps and Verizon signal fine. The laundry, restrooms, and showers were very clean. There is a dump station, but it was awkward for our 37' fifth wheel. We were happy with our choice and will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a surprise! A wonderful rustic park, quiet and peaceful, right next to the lake. Very clean log cabin restrooms and friendly staff. It does have one hook up for 50 amps, not sure if there is any other spots but #15 does have it. Very large spaces. A dump is near but no sewer hook-ups. No cable but Bill does have a stack of VCRs and some DVD's that are free to use. We loved it. Thanks to the previous reviews we decided to try it out and so glad we did. For the fisherman we are told great Salmon fishing here with lots of places for your boat. Perfect place. We would come back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had had car troubles along the way, and so had to change our booking dates several times, eventually reducing our stay to only one night. The manager was really cooperative and understanding with these changes. Actually, he was terrific. The campground really is right on the lake. Even from out pull-through one row back from the shore, we had spectacular views. Sites are pretty basic (grass and some gravel), but are reasonably sized. Washroom/showers are a beautiful log construction building, with clear finished pine interiors, and were spotlessly clean. We found this to be a very friendly little place. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park sits on the shores of Lake Michigan in the Upper Peninsula. It's not fussy but is quiet and clean. The area is somewhat remote, about 7 miles from the town of Manistique. Although there are no sewer hookups, the dump station is readily available behind the motel that is also on the grounds. We had no trouble with the 30 amp electric and the water quality was good. This was our second stay and will continue to be a spot to stay at while in northern Michigan. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small, quiet park with a friendly owner. Sites are adequate but could use a new layer of gravel. This is on the lake but there is no beach access. A lot of scrub brush between the campsites and the lake. There are nice trails to bird in from the campground that will take you to the lake. Wi-fi was very slow and didn't always work. Was not able to pick up any TV channels. Nice library of videos available to use while you are there though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this is a family type campground, there are no play equipment for them. The bathrooms look very old from outside, but they are the cleanest I've seen in my travels. The owner is very helpful and carries a pager to get a hold of him whenever. The sites are large and most are pull through type. All are within a stone's throw - literally - from the water, and the views in the morning are wonderful. This was a very quiet campground for us and was not very busy. We saw what the SP was and this was a lot more peaceful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is no resort but a very old campground. One lane road in and out of park and very dusty. Pull-through site small; another coach pulled in next to us and our slides almost touched each other. Wi-Fi worked. Stayed 2 nights only to visit Pictured Rocks in Munising. Cash or check only, no credit cards accepted. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In this case, the term "resort" is used very loosely. This is a campground in the old fashioned sense of the word. The pull through sites where we parked our 40' coach consisted of a poorly outlined 7'x 45' area with some gravel (didn't even have a picnic table). There is no more than 8' between campers in these sites without the slides extended. The back-in sites for smaller units are somewhat better. The gravel road/driveway into the CG is not wide enough for two way large RV traffic. All interior roads are gravel as well. Verizon MiFi with two bars 3G only. Lots of shade trees, clean restrooms and very dated "activity" center. Quite a few seasonal/permanent residents, but everyone is quite friendly. Lake access with small beach and questionable boat ramp. Badly needs investment in facilities and infrastructure. Would stay here for one night only in a pinch. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards. Cash or checks only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate was $26, but this campground charges $1/air conditioning unit per night extra, so rate was $28 for us. They also charge the same amount for electric heat. The park is a few miles off US-10, but access is easy. Be aware that their pull-through sights technically meet the definition, but they are not long enough to accommodate your MH with toad connected. Some of the park turns are a bit tight with a motor home to pull through with your toad attached so recommend that you disconnect prior to pulling to your site. We had a power outage that lasted for about 5 hours the evening we were there, but this was not the fault of the park. Power was finally back shortly after midnight, which was very good, as it was still quite warm out and the humidity probably could not have gotten any higher. This park has many seasonal campers, and the grounds around some of those units could have been kept up a lot better than they were. All the campers were very friendly. Sites were all gravel and fairly firm, even with the rain that came the night we were there. There is no cable TV and could not locate any over the air channels. However, our site did have satellite access, though many of the sites are too heavily wooded for that. The WiFi was typical of most parks, almost unusable. Verizon 3G data service and a usable AT&T cellular voice signal was available within the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park popular with seasonals and families. Dirt and grass sites are level, but very close together with no privacy. Mature trees provide shade, but hamper satellite and (no cable or over the air TV). Wi-Fi was free, but frequently very slow. AT&T phone in the area is through a partner company and does not provide a data signal. The park was full, but quiet, especially for the holiday week. The rate is weekly for 50 amp service (extra fees apply for AC or heaters). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and comfortable campground. Very pleasant experience--would highly recommend. Close to great restaurants and shopping. Clean restrooms and laundry facilities. Nicely manicured sites with tons of beautiful shade trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park. A bit remote for just an overnight stay. Great place to spend a couple weeks. Significantly better and more economical than the 3 state parks we stopped at (but would not stay). Beautiful views & very quiet. Office staff very friendly. I would avoid the 4 spaces right in front of the office; pretty busy and tight space. Other sites are very spacious. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Gorgeous U.P. setting. Back-in spaces very were spacious; pull thru sites narrow. Cleanest restrooms I have seen in a long time. We stayed 2 nights but would have enjoyed staying longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is daily rate for 30 amp FHU pull-through site. No discounts given. Site was one of four, short and narrow pull-through sites at the front of the park. Overhanging tree limbs that were roof high prevented satellite reception in our sites, but some other sites were open. Excellent Verizon cell and 3G reception. Access road from the highway back to campground is gravel, as well as narrow with tree limbs needing trimming to allow two RV's to pass. It is also gravel, and hence dusty. There are a number of seasonal RV's at this park, and one in particular seemed to park their large pickup truck very close to the left turn many RV's need to make to drive around the park. Electric went out three times while we were there and other campers said they were told by the office that it would get fixed as soon as the boss returns. I can accept the boss being away at times, but not the electric going off three times. We would probably stay somewhere else if back in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice location on a lake just north on U.S. Hwy 2. Pretty basic amenities, but they did have a great woodfire going in the recreation building! Also charged an additional $2 for Wi-Fi hookup, but it worked well. Quite a few seasonal units in place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an adequate campground for an overnight stay for us. It appears to have some permanent sites that are rented for the full summer. Wi-Fi was $2 for 24 hours. The four pull through sites on the front row are very close together. The shade trees are lovely as is the pathway for walking. We would probably stay again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.

There are precious few campgrounds or RV Parks off Highway 2 in the upper peninsula of Michigan, and this is probably one of the best. It is not, however, a "resort." Good roads once you turn off of Highway 2 until you come to about a mile long road to the campground. It is dusty, dusty, dusty. Once you get here, nice view of the lake. Although they advertise 50 amps, I could not find any. Okay for an overnighter since not much else is available. No wi-fi and no cable tv. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are writing to evaluate the West Shore part of this campground, which is on the other side of the lake. We arrived on a Friday night and the other half of the park was overrun with people so we tried the West Shore half. This is a great place to stay if you like lots of solitude and quiet. There were only a handful in there on the weekend. Good points: nice shade, cool, scenic forest scenes on all sides, level wide sites for the most part, quiet since there weren't many people over here. Bad points: no lake view, only 20 amps electric, LOTS of mosquitoes. It's a self check in. Someone does come around frequently to check the population. I thought $16.00 was a lot to pay for only 20 amps electric, but we still enjoyed it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not much for kids to do here. The playground consists of a set of swings and monkey bars. The bathrooms were clean as were the showers despite the rainy conditions. The site had lots of trees which was nice. No campground store which was disappointing. If you are looking for your basic campground that is clean, you will be happy here. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This beautiful park is located on Indian Lake near Manistique, not far from Lake Michigan. Sites are large, grassy and shaded, but not too much -- we were able to get our Internet sateillite dish pointed. Showers are clean and self-contained, with good water pressure and a private dressing area. Nice sand beach with shallow swimming, docks, and water view. Volleyball, horseshoe pits, softball field. Limited biking and hiking. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Its hard to complain about free. We discovered that there are two 30 amp hookups next to the parking lot, and a half dozen or so sites with 20 amp hookups which are back away from the parking lot and near some trees. All sites are on grass, but automobile owners may park to block in a big rig making leaving more difficult. However, we left in the morning and the parking lot was nearly empty, so no problem. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. By registering for a Rewards card I received $10 gambling credit, and since Friday night was ladies night, wife received $15 credit. We might stay here again. Considering the price, its not a bad place at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was lured in by the free camping, and then lost $300 on slots. RV camping is free at this location this year. Sites are back-in, grassy, and about 300 feet long. You may want to check-out early as non-observant casino customers begin parking their cars in front of the motorhomes, blocking you in. All that is available is 20 amp electric. There is no water, or dump station, or garbage can. This location only has the RV park, does not have a hotel. No reservations. Just pick a site, you don't have to register anything. We were the only camper here on a mid-July day. Convenient location to explore Manistique attractions. The lakeside parks in Manistique have fresh water springs so bring a jug if you want to get drinking water. A restaurant is available, but we didn't get a chance to try it. Free coffee and soda in the casino. We were on a casino camping tour, and this place is conveniently located between Kewadin St. Ignace, and Islands Casino near Escanaba. Casino is open til 3am, so you may hear some car doors during the night. Security is around, so we slept good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
