7 Parks near Avoca, Michigan
Jul 2007 - $27.00
This is a very nice campground near Port Huron (approx 15-20 min.). There is a swimming lake that allows catch a release, and there is also a lake/stream that allows catch and keep fishing. Plenty of things for the kids to do. Nice trails for mountain biking (extreme), and hiking. They also have cabins. The showers were clean but you had to pay for them. Nice get-away from the Detroit area about 60 mi north/east. - inkd4life

The Emmett KOA RV park is a nice park for total kid entertainment. It has a 4 acre pond with many inflatable toys for the kids, and a nice playground. It is a bit pricey too . It's the same as many parks we stay at, the adults can't follow the rules as well as the kids. No smoking on the beach, no pets on the beach, no glass bottles on the beach, all broken in our 1 week stay. The staff didn't seem to mind that this was going on, and I would have minded so much either, accept we had our 4 year old Granddaughter playing in the water. Cigarette butts all over the beach, dogs peeing in the water, one even pooped on the beach, now who wants to lay, or play near that. Staff needs to know how to enforce there rules, and clean up for gods sake. And the dump station when used block the parks entrance and exit, I hope you don't mind waiting to get in or out of the park. Won't be a return trip there for us. Thanks. - K-P L

Superb family park with good activities available including many water "gadgets" in small lake. Park is not near anything, somewhat secluded, yet very accessible. Check-in staff was green and escort to site didn't comprehend positioning of power, etc. BUT he'll learn. Shower was very nice with some strange water controls - No hot water at sinks to shave. Park needs some plumbing work in bathrooms, but should be simple. Our site was a bit muddy after rain. We were in a class B MH with no slides or toad. Had water and power only, but dumped at station when departing. We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

A great place to stay with the kids; lots to do including the beach with water toys, jumping pillow, mini golf, and much more. My family had a great time. Wi-Fi was rather slow and the sites are quite small but otherwise our stay was very good. - AlCamMum

I went to the Port Huron KOA with my husband and 5 of my children. This is not the kind of place I normally take the kids because I am extremely cheap and my family is very noisy. I don't like to be stressed out about them bothering the people around us.The sites here are very close together but I didn't have any problems. Everyone staying here seemed to be noisy too. The people here stayed up late and slept in. It was very busy and we took this trip in September. It was so popular that people were camped out on the sidewalk just to make reservations for the next year.
We stayed in a 2 ROOM CAMPING CABIN (W/O BATHROOM)
I couldn't open the door when I got there. My husband thought it was ridiculous that I didn't know how but I had never stayed in a cabin before. I had to go get help. There was a full size bed in one room and two sets of bunkbeds in the other. It was so nice to not sleep on the ground. The cabin had electricity and an air conditioner. We were in cabin 109. The cabin and campground were very clean. Too clean actually. There were no sticks for starting the fire. I liked that there was a grocery store and fast food nearby. The campground offered free wifi but was really slow and was only good for checking email. The community camping kitchen was a nice touch. It was next to a little playground and you could watch your children while you cooked. I have never seen anything quite like it before. Another great thing was that they deliver firewood to your cabin for you.
There were tons of free planned activities for the kids. My 10 year old daughter and 6 year old son loved the activities. They also had a lot of fun on the blow up pillow and and the water wars (a slingshot for water balloons). Watch our video review https://youtu.be/3ZVme5r_LPU. - The Brandy Bunch

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

Such potential. Is a big park with pretty good amenities if only the arcade games that are .75 to a 1.00 to play worked. 75% are out of order. The office closes at 5 pm during the week. There is a pizza cafe that also closes at 5 but that doesn't matter because they weren't making any pizzas whole time we were there. It costs us 178 for 2 nights for 6 people in one class A motorhome. That is the most I've ever paid to stay in an RV park and I've stayed in some really nice ones. There was goose poop the size of dog poop all over our site. No wifi at all they said it was under construction. Lost cable TV signal when there was a slight rain shower! They were mostly teenage or 20 yr old girls working in the office who didn't care about anything and were in no hurry at all to wait on us. Could rent a golf cart for $60 bucks a day!! The paddle boats and kayaks were very inexpensive as well so we didn't even bother. It was just taken over 3 mos ago thinking maybe they don't know what doing yet. - Lucylou2020

The sites are all grass and no gravel for RV. All seagulls around the camp sites and geese dropping all over. Office and store are closed at 5pm M-W. If you bring in a golf cart they charge you $50 deposit and inspect it. What a joke. There are hardly any RV's in here and it's summer vacation time. Wonder why. No Wifi. They said they're working on it. - jnm14

Not what it was when first opened. Don't know who owns it at present, but it is going downhill. Rates have increased but do not see any improvements happening. Sites are beginning to look shabby(mine was covered with cigarette butts). Fire pits are showing their age. Pool is still too small for park capacity. Kayaks, boat, etc are not in great shape and are a bit pricey. Needs some real TLC!! - edw_jr

Two camping areas on shore of Lake Huron. One is largely wooded and the one with the camp store and swimming beach is largely open. Beach is stony/pebbly near the water and sandy further back. This park has the modern Michigan rest rooms with very nice individual tiled shower rooms with adjustable shower heads and plenty of hot water even with heavy 4th of July weekend usage. As in all Michigan State parks you need to pay a camping fee plus fees for your motorhome and additional fee for your towed vehicle. - Appleknocker

Nice state park! Love the area. Lots of families. The roads are paved and sites are clearly marked. You can walk down a large sandy hill to a beach on Lake Huron. - Wmu mom

This is a wonderful campground for families. Plenty of children in North section. If you want a more quiet experience choose the smaller South location. We enjoyed the shady trees and back-in South sites. Plenty of room for slideouts and awnings. No sewer hookup, but has dump location in the North section which is not convenient if staying longer than a few days. This is perfect location for an overnight before crossing border into Canada in AM. We would stay here again. - SunnyandRich

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

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
