As said before this park has a lot of seasonals but they are in their separate area. Sights were level and grassy. We were here in off season so not many people in the park. Park was clean and check in staff was friendly. Would not want to spend a week here but it was good for 2 nights to be able to sight see the Frankenmuth area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice level area, lots of spaces, but they tend to be narrow and are not paved at all. The roads are muddy and hold water in the rain. Nothing to write home about. Did not use or even look into the bathhouse but they were showing their age from the outside. No 50 amp service, 30 service was fine. Older campground but okay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a friendly campground with many seasonal and permanent residents. There are sites available for daily camping as well. The showers and restrooms were clean. The sites were small but maintained. The pond has a lot of weeds so it's not pretty looking but the water is fine for swimming. There are quite a few activities for kids to keep them entertained and the campground even has a little shed (library) full of books. It is close to Frankenmuth and the outlet mall which was nice also. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here over Memorial Weekend so we knew ahead of time that we were going to deal with a large crowd, but the sites here were very close to each other and we felt claustrophobic. Our slide was literally touching our neighbor's awning so they had to retract it a bit. We let the kids play at the "beach" but the small pond looked disgusting so we kept them out of the water. Throughout the whole weekend we felt like we were watching Jerry Springer on location of a Nascar event. There is mini golf available for $2.50/person which was cute. Pedal carts were avail for $4/30 minutes. Firewood was $5 for a nice size bundle. Elec/water/sewer was perfect. It had been raining a ton recently so the place was a giant mud pit. Vehicles and campers were getting stuck, tents were literally floating, and the playground was underwater. The roads are dirt and uneven so the kids couldn't ride if they had training wheels or tricycles. Mother Nature can't be controlled, but if you're going, watch the weather first. This CG is within 30 minutes of Frakenmuth and Birch Run. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for 5 nights in our pop-up camper and had a wonderful time. There was a ton of stuff to do. We played in the water, played softball, played on the playgrounds, played horseshoes, played disc golf, and the list goes on and on. I did not have one issue with this place. There is WI-FI available which was very nice too! Everybody there was nice and we had no issues. The sites were large and clean. We didn't have one single issue the whole time we were there! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Our visit was enjoyable. We were met by security at the gate, who escorted us to our site, directing us to "pull through" the vacant site behind ours, making it easy to get situated. Staff was visible throughout the entire weekend. Despite not being advertised, Wi-Fi was available, and it worked better than at any park we've been to. The facilities were more than adequate. The only reason I rated 9 was due to two brief power outages (less than 10 minutes each.) We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here on a very hot weekend and the park did not have enough power to accommodate everyone. The campsites we had were very nice and had plenty of room for the kids to play. We discovered on day 2 the there was a sewage pipe above ground across from our site that would spray raw sewage in the air from time to time. Needless to say the smell was horrible. We also had many dogs around us that were not on a leash the entire time. This caused problems with our dogs as well as others. I did find the owner to talk to him about our complaints and he rode off in his cart while I was still talking to him. I found him to be extremely rude and I would never stay here again. Who wants to camp in a sewage dump anyway. It's a shame because it has the potential to be a very nice place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really liked the campground! Although there was road noise from the highway and they don't have Wi-Fi, the sites are large enough so you don't run into your neighbor if you walk out your front door. The campground has a lot to do for the kids (although we don't have any) with a nice beach, floats and water crafts to rent. We were able to walk our dogs all over the park and even able to let them off leash in a field. The park is a Passport America participant thus making the price very attractive. We will definitely return to this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground has a nice rustic feel to it and the owners were very nice. The kids loved renting the banana bikes. But, I would not return to this campground. The sites in the full hookup area are extremely small. Once we pulled out our awning and the trailer next to us put out their slide, there was about 2 feet of space between us. A friend with us said the area we were camping in looked like the infield at a Nascar race. Rustic sites were very large. Quiet time definitely not enforced: it was party central until about 2:00 am. It was a holiday weekend so it may not always be like that. Be aware that a good portion of the campground are seasonal campers that are actually permanent trailers. The ones near us were very rude and actually told our 3-year old not to let his toy touch their grass. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If I was looking for a park where my children could safely play and be entertained for the entire summer this would be the place. The small lake with sandy beaches is located right across from the short term RV sites. The lake has canoes and kayaks for rent and also has two stationary rafts in the middle of the lake. The water does not appear deep as there were many small children jumping off of the rafts. There are several older but well equipped playgrounds, an 18 hole miniature golf course, horseshoes, a full soccer field, and a pool table. Children will enjoy the seemingly endless well-mown grassy areas and the many smooth interior dirt roads to bicycle on. This campground has a warm,safe 50's feel to it. The campsites are grass and are sparsely equipped. All sites are back-to-back back in (unless you can pull through an empty site) and all of the full hook up campsites were taken by seasonal renters. There was ample room between us and our neighbors. Sites share water hookups and the widely spaced electrical stanchions each hold four 30amp receptacles that require pigtail adapters, something we have not seen in over six years of fulltime RVing. The campground supplied us with an adapter and the power was good. Only one family is allowed to camp on each site but there were multiple tents on the site behind us which also held a 40' motorhome. The laundromat has only two washers and two dryers. The children were well-behaved and relatively quiet and we would definitely stay here again. There is an 18 hole public golf course located ten minutes away and Frankenmuth is a thirty minute drive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. This was a beautiful campground. There is a lake that offers swimming, fishing, and canoing. There is also a separate small lake on the grounds just for fishing. The sites are close together. There is a store that has pretty much everything. The campground is located in a DRY county, so you would have to bring in your own beverages. Plenty of things for the kids to do as well, young or old. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Family friendly place. Check-in was easy. They are very accommodating. Very flexible on letting us arrange our TT and 2 5ers in a "U" shape so we could share same area between us. It would be nice if there was some more grass. Sites are mostly dirt. There was a problem with showers (no hot water) but I think that was temporary. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a good park if you have a tent or a trailer and just want electric & water (E&W) and shade. If you want full service then it is not bad, but there is no shade. The full service lots are mostly dirt with very little grass and there is no waterfront. The WI-FI is only at the store and it is very slow, enough to do an email. We may go back, but this time it will be E&W with shade and along the waterfront. We stayed for 3 days and had full service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for three nights and it was OK for our purpose of visiting the local area. If you are a fisherman do not go here for the lakes. They are large ponds at best and mainly for the kids. The utilities are good and it is satellite friendly. This is a good family campground that is very busy and congested on the weekends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
50 amp sites along lake but no sewage. Sewage sites are 30 amp. Rather rustic campground. Good pull thru site. Lots of dust, dirt roads. If it rains you are in trouble. Very kid and family friendly. Office staff very helpful and friendly. Delivered our firewood. Flies were a problem. No Wi-Fi or TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Heaven on earth!! I blog for WFN (World Fishing Network) and I love to camp. So the way that I see it, I have the best of both worlds. Krystal Creek is an angler's paradise. Has exceptionally large lots, clean heated pool (water temp 85*), boat and kayak rentals available, clean beach, and endless fishing adventures await. Located in the sleepy town of Vassar (located near the world famous Frankenmuth, Michigan). The very part that makes any persons camping experience the best: NO mosquitoes!!! They even spray for those. These are dedicated owner's who want their campers to have a great experience every time, not just for the weekend. Would highly recommend to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just to clarify about the Wi-Fi. Yes, there is Wi-Fi near the office and near the house towards the back of the park. I am a seasonal camper there and if you go to the pavilion or the gazebo near the store, you will get Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a beautiful camp way out in the country. The grass sites are large and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The are many seasonal sites. We camped here with a large group and we plan on returning next year. The only problem is there are not many restaurants or stores in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a new campground which just opened in 2007. We were impressed with all the activities they have to offer which include paddle boats ($8/hr), row boats, nice outdoor pool,and putt putt golf. They have 3 small lakes (which are old gravel pits that are spring fed) Although we did not stay on a weekend, the weekend activities seem to be very nice. They did offer discounted rental rates during weekdays. The staff did a wonderful job of keeping the bathrooms clean. The negatives: sites were unlevel, most of the park is W/E sites with only 14 W/E/S sites that are non shaded area, staff not very friendly, the roads through the park are uneven w/potholes. There is a working gravel pit by the tent/rustic section and tractors were noisy in that area all day long. Security was all over the park and did a good job keeping traffic slow and escorting you to the site upon check in. Despite the few negatives, this is a great overall campground and we will be returning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice campground. We stayed here for family camp. There were many activities for the children. We really enjoyed our stay here and plan to camp here every year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are big, roomy, grassy, and well kept. This is a church owned campground, and the property is alcohol free. You are allowed to bring your own firewood and golf cart which is highly recommended. We camped here during family camp week, so all the activities were open, however, were open on a limited schedule. Our boys, ages 8 & 10, loved the waterside that lands them into a pond. There is also a zip line that dips through a pond and 2 dry zip lines for those not wanting to get wet. A sandy beach area near a pond also kept the kids entertained There is an ice cream store that is open for a couple hours a day. There is no camp store here, but if you need something the town of Vassar is not far away. Bathrooms and showers were clean; weak 3g connection and no wi-fi. It is a quiet and relaxing camp week here. Staff was very friendly; roads were very dusty, but it was a dry summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
