This was a fairly nice campground, with wide, all gravel roads and sites. Sites all looked pretty level. We had full hook-ups plus cable TV, and of 13 campgrounds we used on the trip this one had best, functioning WiFi by far. Verizon coverage was also good here. One note though: avoid site 22 (which we had) as it is right next to playground. Staff was friendly enough, bathrooms and pool cleaned daily and in good condition. Bathrooms and showers had good water pressure and hot water was good. Although initial entry way to grounds was not all that appealing, rest of campground appeared well maintained. Most sites are surrounded by mature pine trees. Besides pool and playground, they have some horseshoe pits, a laundry (which we did not check out or use), and a minimally stocked camp store. While there were a fair number of seasonals, there were still plenty of nice spots for travelers. I would stay again. - We Roamed and Rambled

Campground served our needs for a one night stop and was the only one open in the area. It looked like there were lots of amenities during the season but all were closed for the winter. In my opinion, the overnight price should have reflected the lack of access to the pool and other amenities (but maybe just keeping the water on and sites working in the winter substantiates the high price). All on-site services worked fine and were in good repair. Site was level, nicely wooded, and long and wide enough. Close to town. - Janau NC

KOA is usually a good value and while some are better than others, you somewhat know what to expect. This KOA was tired and basically seemed uncared for.
It didn't have the neat, tidy appearance, the staff did not follow through on internet and it lacked TLC.
We would not stay here again or recommend it to others. - Cinzia

New Owner. Really cleaning up the place. Close to GR. We needed a place to stay close to Grand Rapids, and most places are closed after September. This and one other park were our only options, and this one was cheaper. New owner was fixing, cleaning, and painting the 3 days we were there. Seems to be really shining up the place. There were a lot of seasonals, but plenty of space for us, and our site was rather large. Wifi was good, as there were 5 different connection options! We had 50amp and Water, and there was a Dump on-site. Owner delivered firewood to us. - Unknown_Normal

Our entire 8u softball team travelled three hours to camp and play in a tournament there in Hudsonville. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Campground was spacious. Nice roads. Shaded with nice big trees. We would camp there again! - Mallorie

When we were there, park appeared to contain mostly full time residents. Not many sites available for overnight stays and our site was very average, but was glad to get it as there are not many campgrounds in area. Heavily wooded with very large trees and view of Grand River. Call ahead to make sure you can get a spot. - G&S Smith

Friendly staff, clean park with a few permanent residents that kept their site well maintained. The park sits on a river so only the sites away from the river have sewer connections all others have to use the "Blue Bucket". I could not use the WIFI and there is no cable. The water was undrinkable as it smelled and contained rust so we used bottle water and our RV's water during our one week stay. They have a playground for the kids, swimming pool, kayaks and a boat launch into the river. - Chuck Forester

The good: Well maintained and relatively clean, the office staff are friendly, there are sites available on the Grand River and there's a great playground for the kids. The bad: The campground seems to be overrun by permanent residents that really take away from the visual appeal of the park. A lot of old equipment. One resident had a dune buggy. Another one had erected a plastic/PVC tent garage that stuck out into the road. Pets were unleashed. There were permanent residents coming in at midnight with cargo trailers. We camped with a 45' DP. They told us on the phone they could accommodate it with full hookups, but we ended up on a 30 Amp non-sewer site. The roads are gravel and very dusty. We would definitely not stay here again. - Delks

It is right next to a very small airport, but it is small enough that noise was never an issue. Even with the close proximity to civilization, it still has that peaceful remote feel. The campground is situated right on the Grand River. They even have a huge riverboat, but unfortunately it had just shut down for the season so we didn't get a chance to ride it. The sites are very spacious and level. The entire campground was very well maintained and everyone we encountered was pleasant. When we arrived and started to level our 5er, we began to have a problem with our front left jack. It wouldn't move more than 4 inches. We were able to manually level the camper for our stay, but dreaded trying to get it back on the truck. When it came time to leave, I was struggling with the jack and a nice couple dropped by to chat. We discussed several things, including the jack problems, and they suggested reaching out to the campground owner for help. As it turns out, after they left, they must have told him about us, as he showed up minutes later offering to help. He ended up getting a forklift to help take some pressure off the problem jack so it could raise us up high enough. We really don't know what we would have done without him. Even the RV technician who had come out didn't have any suggestions for hooking it up (the part wouldn't arrive in time). We will definitely return to this beautiful campground next year! - The Rowlands

Price reflects C2C membership. There is a security station at the entry of the campground; it had staff in it at least half the time we were there. The staff were all younger and not "typical" campground staff-which made their efficiency and respectfulness so refreshing. There are a variety of different campsite layouts. I think part of the mixed reviews come from where the individual campers were parked. If we had been in the area with all the trees, we would probably not have enjoyed this campground. We asked for a site without trees. They directed us where to look in the campground and made some site suggestions. We were backed up to a wooded area, but our site had no trees. There are a variety of site sizes throughout the campground. There was plenty of room in our site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. This campground easily handles big rigs. There are Gravel and Asphalt roads through the campground. Sites have grass and some gravel. Although our site was very level, we saw some other sites that were on an incline (these all had smaller campers on them). Each site had a picnic table. Our area was electric/water only. There is a nice Pool area. There is a very nice laundry room. Very good Verizon coverage. Our site was very easy to get DirecTV satellite. In reading some of the reviews we were hesitant to stay at this campground. Our experience was positive; we will definitely stay here again. - Priceless RV Adventures

The park is way too tight for motorhomes over 40'. The trees are such you cannot make turns without backing several times. The management was unfriendly, the person that checked us in could not tell me where the hookups were, told us to turn on the wrong street thus almost getting stuck between trees. Would not recommend for big rigs, definitely would not return. - Tricia B

A little too kid friendly for us. It was hard to drive within the park without kids being on the road. Big loud party on Saturday night for the kids. It seems great for families but we would have preferred a quieter, calmer environment. We had a pull-through right near the office, so we could get satellite. Otherwise there are a lot of trees. Although it was technically a pull-through, a 40 foot RV could not make the turn to get out. But backing out was easy as we were right near a huge parking area. Extremely sandy sites and our RV was full of sand, no matter what we did. It was a good location, though, and that's why we chose it. It was a bit further out of town than we expected. Okay data and voice (Verizon) but not great. There was a great trail at the back of the park for nice long walks with the dog. They had a small cafe on site and lots of playground area and things for kids. We've visited this area once and don't see a need to go back, especially with this being so hectic a place to stay and a higher priced RV park. - Danni

Rustic campground with several seasonal renters. The good: lots of trees and shade, semi-level sites, reasonably free of highway noise, inexpensive. The bad: several rundown fifth wheels and trailers with cluttered sites, dirt (not gravel) pads, not-so-personable office staff, terrible wi-fI. We probably would not stay again in spite of the low price. - edmck101

Loved the campy and retro atmosphere of this park. Lots of huge trees, nice pond for fishing, canoes to rent, and old-school playground with big steel slides, swings and monkey bars. Every night the park is filled with the smell of campfires and barbecue. The roads are quite tight and the sites are short but super wide. The pool is big and sparkling clean. Great experience. - jjones5996

Everything here looked in very good shape and the maintenance crew was on top of everything. Make sure you obtain a street map for Holland as the streets are different from what we consider normal. Downtown can be difficult otherwise and street names can change without notice. Just as we got used to everything it was time to depart. Great time seeing what we wanted but we probably won't return. Only negative was our site was 30 feet in front of the pool and we requested a site further away. They had open sites but told us they were spoken for. - Mr. Camper

Having stayed in over a 100 different parks in North America? This is number 2 on the continent. The reason not number 1 is Outdoor Resort in Cathedral City is number 1 :)) This park is worth every penny of the $70 we paid. Easy to get to, easy to get in and out, very nice ambience on the water, pristine conditions as far as paved roads and sites, grass and cleanliness immaculate, very large sites. Just a great place to stay; we stayed for 5 nights and were not disappointed at all. Check in staff one of the most professional I've ever met as well. If you happen to get one of the waterfront sites, they trailer you in front ways; really cool idea as your patio is now facing the water!! We would definitely come back here again! - North America in 90 days

If you have 2 kids, 10 and under, this is your dream! Lots of blow up jumpy things and candy gooies in the store for them.
If you are like us, avoid on weekends at all costs.
Place is like a former KOA, but needs about 100 loads of gravel to level out sites that are mostly dirt and tree roots. Lots of trees. We ask to change from a rooted dirt site and they put us on another dirt site, even though there were unused gravel sites available.
We will probably not stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

Great family rv park. Lots of organized activities for kids and many very unique and popular types of playground equipment. Dramatic improvements over the last 4 years in many areas. The park is a great mix of seasonal campers, vacationing families with kids, and and a few overnighters. Lots of shade. - freestyle freddy

We booked one of their two "premium" RV sites on the corner, adjacent to the row of full-timers. The roads at this campground are VERY narrow for big rigs, and cars from all of the campers and their guests are parked within inches of the road or on the road for virtually the entire way around the campground. Sites are all back-in around the perimeter of the campground, and I'm experienced with my rig and not at all intimidated about back-in sites. But with the narrow road and cars parked all along and on it, getting into my site was a challenge. Most other campers were not around to move their parked cars, though I suspect a couple of on-lookers were just curious to see how close I could come to hitting some! I was able to get into this corner site, but if I were at any of the non-corner sites, my 42' RV would not have been able to make the turn to back-in unless I was able to round up the campers who were parked all along the road.
Once in the site, I had to back DEEP into the woods until I could find a somewhat level spot. My site was not paved--most of them weren't, and there was very little gravel to help level things out. My heavy rig squished out what little gravel there was anyway, but eventually I got to a point where I could level--but only with my front wheels suspended 3" off the ground.
This is an old-school campground, primarily targeting young families. There are loads of outdoor activity for kids, and there are MANY kids there to enjoy it. Noise died down at around 10PM, and even the parents were exhausted by then so we did have quiet evenings.
Location was convenient for our purposes, but we won't stay here again with our rig. Anything bigger than 35' probably should seek other options in my opinion. - Rob40G

Owner is a control monster. Rides around looking for a reason to throw you out. Completely rude and obnoxious. Rate way too high for no sewer, 30 amp - not 50 - no cable - bad reception on TV antennae - no pool, and road noise is like parking on the highway. Entrance is the parking lot of a car dealership, literally. DO NOT recommend staying here! - Marsha Smeltzer

1st, rate is $40.00 15 or 30 amp service. no 50 amp. Water on site but no sewer. Must use the one dump station. Campground is between train tracks 100 ft to west and highway 100 ft to east. The traffic is terrible and even with air running, you get the noise day and night. Train twice a day whistle blowing. Staff is friendly. Owners are excessively controlling. Rules are stupid, speed limit is 5 mph. Pool has been filled in with cement because to cheap to pay insurance. wifi is weak, had to use data to check bank account balance. TV is poor on antenna and no other options here. Fire in fire ring only but no fire rings available. Check around. MUCH better places to stay for the money. - Dano849

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This campground is centrally located to everything that Grand Haven has to offer. The beach is a 5 minute car ride. Downtown shopping and restaurants are close too. Meijer and Wal-Mart are also less than 5 minutes away. It is an older campground but the restrooms/showers are clean. Yes, they do enforce the 5 mph speed limit but as a mother I do appreciate that! I think that a good portion of their sites are for seasonal campers. The campground is located b/t railroad tracks and US 31 but we had no trouble sleeping at night. If I needed a safe place to rest after spending the day at the beach or shopping, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! - Gypsymomma
