Camp is convenient to I-69. Staff was very friendly. Our site was level, but there were plenty of other sites that needed maintenance. The major problem was the bathrooms. They are in need of a complete refurb in my opinion. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice owners. They take a lot of pride in their campground and it shows. Park is clean, well kept, and quiet. Lots of open space, neatly mowed, tidy, large shade trees. Friendly seasonal campers, made us feel very welcome. Clean bathrooms/showers. Nice swimming pool with plenty of chairs for relaxing. Horseshoe pits, basketball, playground, community building, laundry area, and two fishing ponds. Very relaxing place to enjoy nature. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice RV park off of I 69. Road to campground partially with new asphalt rest old and a bit bumpy. There some long term stays here and their sites are neat, clean, and well landscaped. Place is very clean though a bit dated. We were escorted to our site by a very nice employee. We had a pull through site for the night. Place has some road noise from I 69 but other campers were quite. Would definitely recommend staying here. Oh and did I mention that they have an inground pool! Great to cool off in after a long day on the road. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Narrow, rough access road. Very friendly owner brought us right to our site. Lots of road noise. Pull through was grassed over gravel. I had to make a tight turn when leaving and the rear wheels of the coach and my toad went off the gravel into the soft grass. Made some ruts in the grass I'm afraid but had no other option. They had just opened for the season and we were the only ones there. Mostly set up for seasonal campers but a fair number of pull throughs available for overnighters. Easy access from the interstate. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We planned to stay for one night but had to replace our leaking kitchen faucet so stayed 2 nights. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Price is reasonable considering we had full hookups and a pull-through. Sites are spacious, grassy areas with a picnic table, and the sites are easy to pull in and out of with our 35' --no narrow lanes to negotiate. Plenty of room to exercise the dog. Laundry area is outdoors but the cost is $1.00 to wash and $1.00 to dry a load. I can tolerate a few bugs for that price. Bathrooms and showers are clean. I didn't use the shower so can't say anything about the temperature of the water. Laundry and showers have soft water. Since it was the off season I can't say anything about the activities listed on their website, but the office was very homey. Only negative comment I have was the traffic noise, but you have that in all campgrounds near the interstates. We slept well. We would stay here again on our next trip to Michigan. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Narrow road down the frontage off the interstate. Its a large field with sites spread out. Wifi wasn't usable. This was a one night stop over for us. It was good for what we needed for the night. We didn't take advantage of the facilities, but they appear quite family oriented. Friendly staff and other residents/extended stay campers. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is near the interstate with easy access via a mile or so of paved, but narrow, road that parallels the freeway. Considering its proximity to the highway, there is not a lot of noise. The first thing we noticed was all the green space, acres of grass, great place to run the dog. They only have a few pull-through transient sites, but when we were there during midweek, there was only one other coach. The sites are very large with a gravel/grass parking area. They were close to being level. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but almost all the RVs were in good condition and they didn't detract from the park. The park is old and this was shown in the utilities. The site we were assigned had a circuit breaker box that was just hanging from the end of plastic conduit for lack of a screw to affix it to the backing post. The threads on both water faucets were defective and we had to connect to water in an adjacent site. The ownership of the park changed recently and hopefully these problems will be repaired soon. The park has a lot of potential for one-night stays. There is no Wi-Fi and marginal service with Verizon. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

I am the same reviewer who left the September, 2011 review. We stayed at Happy Acres over the Labor Day weekend 2012 (along with a couple of other times this past season). Happy to report that everything is as ship-shape as set forth in last year's review. This campground is under new ownership and the only thing different that we noticed is that the seasonal campers seem to be a LOT happier and welcoming to us "transients" (weekenders). We'd be sitting by our fire and they'd drive by on their golf carts just waving and smiling, yelling "hello," etc. This in sharp contrast to many other campgrounds where we're regarded as "outsiders." A couple of them stopped by and talked a few minutes, thanking us for spending the weekend, asking us where we were from, etc. And these are the SEASONAL CAMPERS, not the owners! The owner did indeed stop by a couple times wanting to make sure everything was OK. I don't want to overstate all of this: it wasn't like we were being bothered every few minutes. People were just very friendly without being overbearing. It was like they were genuinely concerned about the reputation of their campground. All of the transient sites, including a water/electric grass site section for groups were full and everyone seemed to be having a good time with the bingo, hayrides, etc. The pool is well maintained and spotless with lots of tables and chairs. Another pleasant trip to Happy Acres. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We've stayed here before, and it's as nice and friendly as ever. Had a pull-through full hookup site. Nice, well-maintained hookups. Fairly wide/level site compared to other private campgrounds. We were here on Labor Day weekend and the place was pretty well full. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, what with the planned activities including a corn hole tournament, bingo, a hayride that we jokingly dubbed the "Harley Tractor" (it was really loud and clacketing, and went around and around and around the campground many times). The pool is small, but when we got in on Thursday, we were just one of three couples. On a 90-degree day, it was HEAVEN! Very clean, clear pool, with plenty of chairs, and tables/umbrellas. On Labor Day weekend Saturday, the pool was indeed packed. However, it was virtually all families having a great time - and we still found 3 chairs poolside!! There are many big lakes and Pokagon State Park within a few miles of this campground (we were fishing/swimming Coldwater Lake this weekend). The road noise can be kind of annoying if you're outside (but we couldn't hear it inside our hard sided 5th wheel), and the Wi-Fi was completely out. No cable, but we picked up a couple dozen channels with our antenna. However, the friendliness, roominess, and cleanliness of this campground outweigh those relatively minor annoyances. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice enough park with about 30 FHU, pull-through, open field sites, some W&E, and the rest seasonal sites in the pines. We were there on a Sunday night and only a handful of the FHU sites were taken. The utilities worked well, and the sites are decent size. There is no cable TV (I did not try antenna reception) but most FHU sites are satellite friendly. Did not ask about WI-FI at check-in, but when I tried to connect later, I got the "limited or no connectivity" message even though it showed a strong 4 bars. I did not try to resolve the issue since it was late. Nice small pool and some play stuff for kids. The bathrooms could use some updating. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

This CG is great! However access is a bit of a challenge due to construction on the access road. Unfortunately the road is not marked due to the construction. Just turn south at the "Gas America" station, take it slow until the pavement begins. The park is huge complete with ponds and local wildlife. Roads are gravel and sites are level. The staff is very helpful and the Wi-Fi performed well. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Had a little trouble finding the park as their signage is amateurish and poorly placed. We called & staff had trouble with directions. Park is locate on frontage road next to I-69 so there is some traffic noise. Park has gravel roads which are very dusty. Staff was friendly. Pull thru sites were long enough for any size coach without unhooking toad. Sites wide enough for any number of slides. The utilities were modern and well placed, but the water faucet was dripping & mounted to an insecure post. There was trash in the site when we arrived. The Wi-Fi is only available in the office. Pool closed at 6pm on a very warm day. We felt the park was adequate for an overnight stop. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly helpful staff. Level, gravel, spacious full-hookup sites. Pull-thru sites are separated from seasonal sites, however seasonal camp sites appeared clean and well-maintained. Very close to I-69, but could not hear traffic noise inside our RV. There are small trees planted between the sites, so someday there will be shade in the pull-thru sites, but not now. I would definitely camp here again if in the area. We camped at Happy Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
