Permanent residents do not pick up after their dogs. Had a huge pile next to our MH. WiFi worked well. Located less than the length of the runway north of the Alpena airport. F16s or F18s flew over. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.

This is a campground, not an RV park so count on lots of trailers, kids, bikes. Not a bad thing, just the way it is. The owners were great in helping us unhook and store our car trailer. They pick up your trash, bring you firewood. The swim area could be nicer. We had a site with electric and water only. They pump out for $8. Nice location and site right on the river and inlet waterways. Close to Alpena and shopping - 8 miles or so. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park. It's crowded with kids and swimmers walking to the lake that surrounds the park, but hey...this is camping! We had a nice, level, back-in spot. It fit our 40' rig quite easily, however we did not have sewer at our site (which is why I only gave it a 9). If the wifi worked better and we had had sewer I would give it a 10. We would stay here again. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.

This park has lots of trees and nice large sites that are mostly level. They have pontoon boat rentals that are very reasonable, and the fire wood was very inexpensive. The staff was fantastic, they were very helpful and made you feel right at home. It is a little ways out of town, but it is very nice for visiting Alpena.

We stayed in full hookup pull-through site. Sites were gravel and level. The park is family friendly with a nice beach with a slide into the water and rafts for playing and swimming. We were in the area to visit friends and they had only positive comments about the campground too and know locals who come here for the season. The lake front site seem to be mostly seasonal sites with boat tied at the site. Efficient check in and nice indoor pool in addition to lake swimming. Verizon data service was a little slow here but worked. Not far to go into town. Take the glass bottom boat to see the ship wrecks. We'd definitely come here again.

We really enjoyed this campground. Surrounded by a beautiful lake, lots of swimming and boating. Nice large layout. Owners were excellent. A bit tight for larger coaches but doable. Only a handful of 50 amp sites. We would certainly return. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.

The park is located on the Thunder Bay River/Lake Winyah. The best lake sites are 6 to 11 (Water and Electric only). There are several seasonal renters. The park appears well managed and it is certainly will maintained. The sites are small, close with reasonable shady. The sites are grass/gravel, and are level. It’s a dog friendly park, with a dog walk area. Included are 73 cable TV channels. The park’s Wi-Fi is reasonably fast. Version cell signal was 2 bar (4G). The restrooms and showers were very clean. The men’s shower temperature settings are not adjustable. For me the temperature was too hot. The laundry area is clean, two washers and two driers. It a 10 minute drives to many good restaurants. I would certainly return. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a large site on the end of the row. Lots of shade and room to run. The park is family and pet friendly. There was a lot to do on the water. The swimming area had a few water trampolines and a slide going into the water. It was too cold for us to take advantage of this. They also offer watercraft rentals (peddle boats, canoes, pontoon boats). We did rent a paddle boat for an hour for $7.00. We had a lot of fun out on the water. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Travel Trailer.

This campground had good electric, and Wi-Fi, and cable. The sites are a little close together, but most of your sites are in view of the lake. Good hot showers, although the showers could be a little cleaner. The owner was fairly nice, until you disagree with her, or question her about the rates, etc. We booked the site for a week, and the very next day my husband saw a worker purposely run over two baby ducks, so we decided this was not a place where we wanted to stay. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Truck Camper.

We did not like this park. The laundry was completely inadequate. The laundry room was very small, there were no tables and no racks to hang your laundry and there were only 2 washers and 2 dryers, not nearly enough for this size park. The owners were unfriendly and not at all helpful (if you don't like being there, sell the park to someone who would enjoy owning it). One day the office unexpectedly close for the entire afternoon with no notice or explanation. The sign on the door said they would return at 3 PM, but no one showed up at 3. Instead they strolled in somewhere around 6 PM. We asked about filling our propane tank. We were told someone would come to our site in a cart and pick up the tank (a 30 lb tank) to have it filled. They never showed up and we bought propane at another park. OK, its not much money, but why would you turn down a sale? We would not stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights. This is a great park if you have children - there are many, many things (indoor pool, canoes, kayaks, rental bikes, etc.) to keep them busy. The sites are more for smaller size RV's, but we were able to get a site for our 40' motorhome. The park was very full - but always quiet at night. Park personnel always working. Friendly office staff. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed this campground; with its fantastic views of a lake. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Sites a bit muddy, but that was unavoidable to to more than a week of rain. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.

Friendly owners and campers. Our pull through is actually a pull-in and back out site. Had too many trees to make the turn out. Nice shade, it would be nice to have gravel for parking and entry area. Sand is terrible when wet. A very nice countryside. Saw two geese families and one swan family. Have to expect some droppings to see nature. Guy caught 18 fish in the little pond. Lots to do! This is a PasportAmerican and CampClubUSA RV park. Honored with no questions, or bad sites. We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Fifth Wheel.

A very friendly park. We stayed in a 45 foot MH at a 30amp site. Mentioned that it wasn't enough power for us, and they put in a 50 amp! Not many sites for big rigs. Has clean restrooms and showers. We will be back! We camped at Campers Cove RV Park & Canoe Livery in a Motorhome.
