Extraordinarily crowded for July 4th weekend, but the facilities were still kept up nicely. The comfort stations could use updating but were very well kept. Heavy rains recently meant lots of mud but also great kayaking! Site 370 has 2 trees close to the pad that prevent awning deployment but offers lots of shade from said trees. - The Flying Dutchman

Very nice park. Good kayaking, but water levels were low and there was a lot of moss. Only complaint is that after the weekend, Sunday actually, the restrooms were a total disaster. Inmates came in on Monday and scrubbed everything and worked on landscaping. If you want quiet, drive around the park as it is very large, very nice, and you can get more secluded site than we had, but won't have 50 amp. We were close to playground and a group of four tents and they were very noisy. You could be more selective but the tents moved in after we did. Tenters thought it was daylight until 1:00 a.m. We stayed for four nights and would stay there again. - horseylady

Very pretty state park with ample, grassy sites. Fairly level sites. Great canoeing and kayaking. We would definitely stay here again, especially in good weather. We stayed here on a caravan and everyone loved this park. - pegasus

Big rig friendly with level sites and easy access from interstate. Showers were large with hot water. Laundry and Wifi was okay. No cable but able to use our satellite. Campground had large dog park. Even though there were lots of seasonals there were still good sites for overnight or weekly stays. - Fulltimersrv

We stayed for a long weekend with good friends. Have wanted to visit this CG for a while and are very glad we did! The CG was very clean. I was impressed at the number of employees we saw, always busy doing something.
There was a fenced dog park with some ability equipment, my 13yo chocolate lab who used to be an agility dog but just gave me a look when I suggested he give it a try!
The camp store was wonderful! So well stocked, we were very excited about the hand dipped ice cream. There was a lot of rv supplies. They even had Circle-B t-shirts at a very reasonable price.
There are seasonal lots that are very well maintained by the seasonal campers. The seasonal people that we spoke to were very nice. We are definitely considering a seasonal lot.
They also have cabins to rent.
There is a newer building by the beach that could be a little store but it wasn't open yet when we were there. So I'm not sure.
There are 2 beaches which we didn't use because it was too cold.
You aren't allowed to bring in your own wood so just be prepared to be buy theirs, which I thought wasn't a bad price. - KaraShively

Something has happened to this campground. Office had bags of stuff all over the floor.
We went to our site and phoned back asking about air tv, which is non existent. At the same time, we reported four bags of garbage in our fire pit that we didn't want to get blamed for. Said oh sorry, we will pick it up. Was still there the next morning.
No map of facilities was given.
Only good thing was the Internet was was satisfactory. Very nice picnic tables.
Feels like this place is on a slippery slide in my humble opinion. - Tworetired

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. - KSU Alum

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. - ghatfield

This is a no frills RV park but it is convenient to I-69 and good for an overnight stay. We've stayed here twice & both times, it was a "self serve" check-in. Pick a site, fill out the registration form & deposit it with cash or your credit card information in the box. There is no Wifi in the park. The washrooms & showers are clean. We did not use the laundry facilities. Will stay here again for convenience only. - 69636

This park is less and less each year that we stop.
This year some of the washrooms and showers were "out of order".
You have to check yourself in and leave the envelope......with your credit card number available.
Almost past the point of being convenient. - Tworetired

Easy access from freeway, very quiet, site accommodated 60' pull-through, stable AC power, good water pressure. We would stay here again. - RagFtw

This campground is under newer ownership and appears to be more suited to the seasonal camper than travelers or local families. The people at the office were not very friendly nor management team well signified. The site we were approved to set up on was apparently the parking spot used by a seasonal camper; thus creating an attitude problem for him (and therefore us) the entire weekend. The bathrooms and showers were not kept clean in a timely manner during this overly growled holiday weekend. Sites are not marked thus allowing campers and cars to be parked everywhere. I'm sure this campground was over their set capacity. The speed limit was not enforced, and with too many golf carts on the road at all hours, this created hazardous conditions for the many children roaming around. Scheduled activities were not well organized, nor conducted on-time. Our overall impressions were, obviously, not good and we would not recommend this campground to anyone passing through. There are many other campgrounds within the area, therefore my buck would definitely have been spent better elsewhere; and probably have been welcomed considering today's economy. - scrapperdmk

We camped there during the Kids Festival weekend. The location was nice... not too far away from home but far enough to "be away". They had lots of activities for the kids to do but some were a little cheesy. Our site just had electric with some grass but no shade to speak of. Luckily it wasn't a hot weekend. Wasn't exactly a quiet place but not horribly noisy. We'd stay there again in the off season. - Chic

We stayed here one night and would never go back. The place is old and rundown. There was only one gravel site and it was more dirt than gravel. The rest of the sites were grass. The electric at the sites were 20 with some 30 AMP. - corgi lovers

The park is not unlike all of the other state parks we've visited. They are all beautiful in their own right and Pokagon was definitely no exception. It is hilly, (mostly) green, and located on the shores of Lake James (a public lake). The campsites were large and campsite 429 was huge. We think that site 429 use to be two sites that they made into one because it had a large whole in the center of it were another burn pit use to be. Most of the site was dirt with a few occasional grass patches. The actual camping pad was also just dirt, unlike the gravel found at most state parks. The sites were also fairly shaded with lots of trees covering most of the grounds. The playground was nice for the littler kids, but our six year olds were pretty bored with it after a few minutes. The park did offer a wide variety of activities. The have a cool refrigerated toboggan run but it is only operated throughout November-February. They have a pretty nice little nature center with a lot of live turtles, snakes, fish, and frogs. The beach is very nice, but small. The water is pretty clean, shallow, and has a sandy bottom. We don't want to be harsh, but he bathhouses are gross. The showers were dingy and dirty, paint was peeling off the walls, the floor tiles were cracked and dirty, and there were lots of cob webs. There are two dump stations located in the various loops of the campground. This is a bit odd as they are located in the campground loops, like on the main drag to exit the loop, which means that on Sunday morning there is a huge traffic jam of campers blocking the road right in the middle of the campground. On top of that, the dump station in the loop we camped in was pretty small. Our 30 ft camper barely fit in the station. - Lets Go Camping They Said

Generally nice campground in a State Park with lots of family-oriented amenities and activities. Roads are paved. The gravel sites range from open and sunny to shaded with good privacy, and were mostly level. Note that not all loops have electric hookups, so pay attention when choosing your site. Only one modern bathhouse was open this early in the season. The restroom facilities were as clean as could be expected given their age, but the showers were rather grim with lukewarm water at best. The shower curtain appeared to be from last season, which is odd, as you would expect that to be one of the first things they would replace when preparing for the new year. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant, restful stay for one night. - A Frame

We were reserved in the 100 loop - (Site 111). The restrooms in this loop were sketchy. When we got to our site, we were only able to pull into our site by using the site across from us. Once we got into it, we discovered that the only electricity available was at either of the neighboring sites. Our cord needed to be three times longer, so we were in trouble, as the temperature was going to get down to 39 degrees that night. We left our site and went up to the check in. They sent up a DNR guy to help us. Meanwhile, the people in the site across from us arrived and had to use our site to pull in. The DNR saw all our problems and very nicely put us into the 500 loop. The 500 loop is flat and easy to get into and out of. The bathroom is clean and nice. The 100 loop was much more interesting and rustic, but we were just as happy to switch. All of the DNR people we spoke to were the nicest people. BUT there is no hot water in the showers. It would be better to install pay showers and get hot water. - User2011

Very clean, friendly host check in, shady, mostly poor satellite reception, good OTA TV, paved roads, gravel sites, good fitness opportunities, well worth the price. - Hhtjr

This campground is right in Fort Wayne along a river, though you don't really see it from where you park. There is a bike trail that goes along the river for miles and miles. The park is forested but you don't have privacy from neighbors. Each spot has plenty of room for slideouts and such, and each has a campfire ring and picnic bench, but that's about it. But you're in Fort Wayne! The hosts are very friendly and the bathrooms are very clean and kept up. The laundry facilities are clean and work well too. The water hookups are centralized so you need to run your hose a distance to get water - nothing unreasonable but the water spout is not right next to your spot. Sewer is not offered, but there is a dump and it's accessible and has non-potable water to clean the tanks. Sites are gravel and then grass between each site. Pads are pretty level. A bit of road noise but actually quite peaceful. Lots of shade. No cable hookups. WiFi works wonderfully most of the time. - US Traveler

We were in town for engine repairs on our motorhome and killed some time at this park. We didn't stay at the campground but drove thru a couple times to check out the sites and also see the camp host. Sites look level with good spacing between them. Most, if not all, are back ins. Only 50/30 amp electric and water with a dump station on the way out. Campground roads and sites are gravel with grass between sites. Lots of trees overhead so satellite tv might be a problem. No wifi or cable. It's in town so there are plenty of places to eat and see. It's right next to the coliseum. The park surrounds the campground so lots of green space. There's a very nice dog park that you can take your dog to for a fee ($2 per dog). Overall the campground looked well kept and clean. - Flippitti

Gravel roads and sites, very level. No patio but a picnic table and fire ring. The staff and management were very nice and helpful. The park in along the side of the Lake. There were a lot of permanent residents with older units. Great place for fishing and boating. Watch the goose poop by the lake. The laundry had only 1 washer and 1 dryer that have seen better days. - esta34950

Rate is reflective of monthly rate. We will not stay here again. Owners are nice but overwhelmed by what it takes to maintain a campground. Rules are not enforced. Bathrooms were dirty, and when I mean dirty, I mean excrement smeared on walls. Playground was same way. Parents let children run loose and teenagers think it is fun to knock on your camper door at midnight and run away. Wife is very spotty and costs extra. All of this was brought to the owners attention and the response was was shrugged shoulders and the cleaning lady quit. - Luvbugz

They are changing this campground around. They are in process of building a new store, business center. Nice and friendly people. Sites are close, they are cleaning the park up, installing new sewer system. Seems like lots of changing for the better. I would come back. Yes, there are seasonal campers, but all were nice that we ran into. - MrTonyD

A really lovely place, but not very accessible for a big rig. Once you get in the campground, the sites are large and randomly placed it seemed. Lots of city park-like things to do, but it never seems crowded. WiFi is iffy. We would stay here again. - carderh

This is a very nice, clean, friendly park on a lake. The sites are in grass, big, roomy, long sites, friendly staff. They could use to trim a few trees near the roads in park. I would camp here again if in area. - 2Germans

We were made to feel very welcome at this campground. Staff was very friendly and always noticeable. Other campers were welcoming. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Park area for the kids are numerous and up-to-date. Swimming area was clean and well supervised. Would recommend this campground to anyone passing through. - scrapperdmk

Nice long pull-through sites that are gravel next to cement pad. Friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Restrooms and showers were long walk. They were being renovated. Too far from the W sites. Feels safe. Pleasant campground. - Snooker2

If you ever find yourself even considering stopping here, pull to the side of the road and slap yourself as hard as you can. When you can see straight again, carefully reenter traffic and run, run like the wind. This is beyond a doubt the worst campground (I use the word campground for lack of a better word) that I have ever stayed at. Yes, they say they have 60 sites, I counted about eight that were not used for full timers. Most of these were water/electric situated in the middle of a field. Access for even medium sized rigs is iffy. We scraped several branches coming in with our 30 foot Class C. Average site width is about 12 feet, (I am being generous here), not enough if you have slide outs. The web site states the grounds have been restored to the same way they were 20 years ago. I think they mean they have done nothing to the place in 20 years. Avoid this place like the plague. - axtoncampers
