7 Parks near Algonac, Michigan

We camped here a week. Friendly couple that runs the place. Most campers are here for the summer, we were just passing through and only stayed a week. They are right on the river with a dock and boat slips, a couple of trees. Nice area. The internet connection is very weak, so couldn't get it in our rig. Had to go to 'community center' which was a converted garage (not too clean) but okay for sitting and using the internet. Nearby is a ferry that will take you (not RV) to the island (bikers are free). We took our bikes and biked around it in about 2 hrs and had lunch at the "School House Restaurant" which was very good. - kemosabe

If you like the water, this is the place for you. The views are great and the owners are just the best. Lots to do and places to go. Just a great all around place. - Drifter

Beautiful view of the St. Clair River, clean facilities and friendly staff. Great place foe freighter watching, in warmer weather swimming and fishing. - Marolyn

We stayed during the week between two Harvest Festivals and the park was empty. This park is always clean with the biggest activity being watching freighters travel the St. Clair River. Sites are either paved or graveled with power poles close in the rear. Off the pads it is mostly grassy. Would rate higher if there was anything outside the park to do. - dalenoel

If you like to watch Great Lakes ships close-up, one of the camp sites close to the river here is an excellent place to do it. Ships coming from Lake Superior, Huron, and Michigan have to pass through the St. Clair River on their way to Lake Erie and the rest of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Roads were paved and sites were mostly gravel, but the view, at least for me, was everything. You can choose between treed and more open sites. Good Verizon service, as well. - judy_online

They advertise sewer sites but only had 2. This is a large park with a big area for seasonal trailers. They have a number of sites for overnight or short stays but are water and electric. They also have a honey wagon you can arrange for but I am not sure if you have to pay for it. They are upgrading the electric system but we had continual breaker failure on the 30 amp and could not use our electric water heater setting or the A/C. For the price this was not a reasonable park to stay at. The washrooms were hit and miss for cleanliness and for the most part were not tidy. Sites were grass and mostly level. Staff seemed preoccupied and we were not shown to our site. I would not stay here again. - murph164

This park would get a much better rating if more general maintenance work were done. We stayed in section B on a concrete, back in site. The 50amp power, water and sewer hook ups were good. The showers in this section were broken and not working (we never use the park showers anyhow). Although the campground was close to the highway, the site was quiet. The Verizon and T-mobile signals were strong. Also no trouble connecting to satellite TV from our site. We did not use club house or other amenities, using the site to tour the Henry Ford Museum. We saw no non-camping visitors during our four day stay. Therefore the non-working entrance gate was not an issue. We would stay here again. - rjohnso3a

St Clair is an older park with a lot of problems, and it's a real shame because the property is a wonderful, wooded area close to the coast, lovely towns and countryside, and minutes from a bridge into Canada. Management isn't the problem -- it's the lack of funds coming from corporate.
The main, glaring issue, IMO, is the broken security gate -- it is totally inoperable and is wide open 24/7, with no ranger manning the kiosk, which is hidden from both the road and the clubhouse/office. Anyone can get in at any time of the day or night -- and they do. Because the park is very close to a main highway and an hour from Detroit, this is an especially great concern.
The pool is closed -- it has been badly damaged by erosion and will be removed and, eventually, rebuilt. The clubhouse is well-maintained, and there's a tiny, basic store, breakfast available on the weekend, and a separate kids game/TV room. The water is full of rust -- even with added bleach, my laundry was discolored in the washing machines, so count on going off-site to do laundry.
There are other issues, including erosion and the usual crappy roads. I hope that corporate realizes what a gem they've got in St Clair and puts the money and effort in to revitalize the property. - rushin river

The rate for this park for us should be $0 as we are members of Thousand Trails. The guard shack was not manned and the arm was down to prevent entrance. We called the number listed on the window and were there for over half an hour. Our call went to voicemail. The mailman finally told him there were two rigs seeking admittance. The lady checking us in said they never got the message which was strange. She told us of several open places and that was helpful. We stayed here because it was close to Dearborn and safe. It was mostly quiet and the people running the office were friendly and helpful. We were told the arm was broken so they left it up all the time. Our last night there the pump on the water for the park went out. We expected it to be out overnight but it was only a few hours. Kudos for that. Water pressure was quite low. I would stay here again and will recommend it to others. - rolling homeless

We had the worst time here; so much so we paid 3 nigts and left after only one. There is no swimming, no playground, and they charge $45 a night plus $5 per child and I have 3 kids! Only one washroom so one person at a time. Sites have no fire pits unless it's a seasonal site. There are trees but not much shade at all. Check it out on google maps before you go; we will never return. Staff was very rude, but nice on the phone at time of booking. - biscayne

We camped here right on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Big trees provided shade and flowers were blooming. The campground is older but adequate and the hostess is nice and accommodating. The only con is that it is not 30 minutes from Windsor but more like 45 minutes to an hour. We would stay here again if ever this way. There is a fishing dock where you can fish just steps from your campsite. Everything in Canada just seems so much cleaner, especially contrasting to Detroit. - JWT

Pick out your site, our site was dirt/mud but other sites next to us were gravel and some were paved. All same hookups. Staff was very nice. Lots for kids to do. - KCook3

Such a big campground and so little restrooms. With so many children, of course restrooms will not be clean. The camp owner should clean them more. This campground is packed with children and there is so much to do for them! If you love this kind of campground, this is your place. You can spend as much money as you want.
WiFi is free and reasonable good.
Sites are concrete, so level.
In the evening the campground looks nice, everybody has put lights everywhere. - Bisan

Best campground we stayed at in a month long trip in July. It was so good we stayed there twice. I wish all campgrounds were this nice. - Rygar

We spent the night there on our way to Niagara Falls. The park host was very helpful. There were a lot of seasonals there. We'd definitely stay there again. - 1dinky

As previously stated, near the interstate - and accessible - but we didn't hear the noise. Good jump off to visit the another part of North America (Canada). Paid cash because they have a 2.5 % charge for credit card. Some nicely placed flowers throughout park. We were in a class B motorhome (no slides nor toad) and stayed in electric/water site - Absolutely ZERO TV reception! We would stay here again for a single night but not longer. There were many people who reserved for several months at a time. - KAZIMIRA

The good news is the park is very close to the Interstate and the Bluewater Bridge to Canada, making it very convenient for an overnight stop before crossing the border. The bad news is the park is very close to the Interstate and the Bluewater Bridge to Canada, making for constant road noise 24/7. That issue aside, the park appears to be well kept up, and the woman that checked us in was very pleasant and accommodating. Our premium site had very good 50 amp electric and a well placed sewer connection. The water spigot was one of four on a single riser servicing four sites, and required about 35' of hose to reach it. The site was a bit closer to the neighboring sites than we like though. The park WiFi was quite good at about 5 meg down and 3 meg up. Our Verizon signal was excellent as well. All in all, we felt this was a good overnight or short term stay location, but a bit to close and noisy for a longer term stay. - NYDutch
