7 RV Parks near Bay City, Michigan

We stayed four nights and enjoyed the park. However, we were disappointed to find the beach was across a busy street and the water was quite mucky. Other than that, great park. Small, clean, plenty of mature trees. 15 minutes from downtown with lots to do. - Amanda b

The camping fee of $23 was somewhat misleading if you aren't a Michigan resident. You also need to purchase a recreational pass for your motorhome which is $6.00/day or $31.00/year. Then you need to purchase an additional pass for your towed vehicle which costs $6.00 and is good for the duration of your camping stay. The campground is heavily wooded and satellite TV impossible. The weekend was so crammed with campers and their guests it was very difficult to maneuver to our campsite. The sites are grass and dirt and the many rutted sites indicated that rain would make a lot of the campground unusable. Lots of paved rec trail for cycling and walking/jogging and lots of beach. The bay water appeared to be very dirty and in the morning a lot of scum had washed up onto the beach. - Appleknocker

Loved this campground and will definitely stay here again when in the area! The walking paths are terrific, the showers are great, the bathrooms are clean. The park is pretty quiet for having so many sites. Nice and shaded. Two showers/bathroom facilities, so no matter where you're at in the campground, the restroom/showers are easily accessible. Next time, we'll bring our bikes, as the park and paths are also ideal for biking. I would encourage anyone to visit this park, and take numerous walks over to the bay. If you've got children, there is a very nice playground/sprinkler park along with many pavilions for a picnic....besides the beach with shells for the kids to pick up! (or the adult, if you're like me ;)!) - fenfam

Clean campground, friendly people, quiet at night.
Dumpster has been overflowing since the weekend...should be serviced either twice a week or called in when cannot close the lids.
Overall a great campground, would recommend to friends. (Maybe a recycling area for plastic bottles, cans, etc would help alleviate need for extra trash dumping?) - Ana1

Nice little campground at the end of the road. Small with only 50 some spaces. Road was paved and sites have level concrete pad. Water was way back between sites so I needed my 100 foot hose. WiFi was actually very good. Quiet, plenty of shade and nice breeze. Hiking trails. Great find. - Gr8daggett

Nice campground. But way away from the interstate. Not a whole lot to do here.
Concrete pads, 50 amp and sewer. Well maintained. Be sure you have extra water hose because on some sites you have to share the same fixture with your neighbor. I had approx. 40' distance to get water. - archbarb

Clean campground with big sites and full hook-ups. Con is that there is no WiFi available. There is not really a beach, only the marina with bay access. Many permanent campers. - Traveler04
May 2012 - $39.00
This is a pretty noisy place to stay. There are a lot of seasonal camps and the folks seem to like to party loudly. We heard Red Solo Cup over and over again. There aren't a lot of trees for the pull-through sites. It is not really the peaceful, camping atmosphere we generally like. The bath houses were clean and good sized. Although there is no Wi-Fi, our Verizon card had a strong signal. AT&T generally had 2 bars of 4G, but sometimes switched over to the Edge. We would not choose to stay here again. - ppalmer21

As stated, this park is kind of geared to fisherman on Saginaw Bay. We had a full hook up, pull through site. Pad was cement. There was plenty of room. Also room to park boat and trailer. Most of the sites are permanent/seasonal spots. Everyone had a golf cart. Showers were clean. There is a small pond for the kids to catch bluegill and bass, but not much else. Catholic church close by in downtown Linwood. The marine is top notch with good boat ramp. - rono

Staying here one night. Reservation made day before, excellent customer service. Facility is Exceptional. I understand this is a new owner and has made many upgrades. This park offers a Fitness Center, very nice indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna. We were impressed with the lake for fishing (catch and release), they rent kayaks to paddle on lake (not large but sufficient). Playground was clean and on weekends they bring in inflatable jump stuff for the children. Rates are excellent; we Highly recommend this park and will visit again. - PatteCaryMeans

Don't know what park looked like under previous owners, but new owner since Oct 2016 has trimmed trees, cut grass, etc. Picnic tables being replaced. A rare find for full timers in vacation country as it has cable and sites that have sat shot. Some road noise and for you train haters if you work at it you can hear a train or two in the distance. NOTE: We run a fan at night for white noise in bedroom. Tricky spotting entrance as it is behind hotel and entrance runs thru convention center parking lot. Stayed on way north liked it returned on way south. Indoor pool, spa, sauna, exercise room. Passport Am good Mon-Thu unusual as most won't take it in season. - rvkiltara

Pros: Allows campfires, has a pool/jacuzzi, and workout room with a good variety of machines, quiet park Cons: The grounds need LOTS of work! The grounds are mostly not level gravel mixed with weeds. It rained, and there was mud and puddles all over. The grass needs cutting. The building landscaping is a mess. The "beach" is sand and weeds. Front desk staff double booked our site, but resolved it very graciously - thank you. No literature provided on area eateries, shopping, entertainment, etc. Our first time back here since new ownership. Nice folks, but LOTS of work to do on this property. PS, it appeared that non-camping guests were allowed to use the facilities....(?) - Summrbrz

Park was clean and neat - although showed some touches of age (some of the concrete site pads were cracked and broken up). We had to do some jockeying to get our rig far enough away from the large tree on site in order to open our main driver slide. - 5er_MKS

First, the good parts. Location is excellent. It is only about 1 mile to the Bavarian Inn so it is walkable which is a good thing since parking in Frankenmuth can be an issue. We still drove. The park itself is kept very clean, everywhere. The roads and sites are well kept and there is plenty of thinks for kids to do. Bottom line, we would return and pay the higher price because it is so much more convenient than any other park in the area. On the negative side, the sites are close together and there is very little shade anywhere except under your awning. The showers, which were good sized, well appointed and clean had a little push button thing that started the water. No problems so far. The issue was that the temperature could not be changed and it was too hot. Way too hot. Back to the good things, the staff was excellent. When I thought there was a problem with the power pedestal they sent someone out immediately. It turned out that the camper never bothered to check the internal (his) circuit breaker, which never fails, to see if it was tripped. Still they were very nice and did not laugh at me. To correct a few items from a previous review, the restrooms are air conditioned and the outdoor pool is now open. Again, Frankenmuth is a delightful city and we will be back at this park the next time we visit. - Meyer Camping

This is a gated park in a location convenient to the nice little town of Frankenmuth. It was easy to find and the office staff friendly.
I did not use the showers. The women's restroom was clean, but not air-conditioned. This gave it a feeling of being less than clean because it was extremely humid and over 90 degrees during our stay.
There was a beautiful outdoor pool next to the restrooms that looked inviting, but was never opened although the sign said, "Opening summer of 2016." It seemed really odd for this big new finished pool to be inaccessible in mid-August when there are so few days left in the season. The indoor pool was opened, but again, it was so hot and humid in the pool area, it was not inviting.
There are a limited number of 50 amp sites and the pads are crushed stone, not concrete. Some of the corners are tight and the park roads are very narrow, making it a little difficult to navigate a big rig.
The park advertises "free high-speed" internet, however, we could not even access our email using their wi-fi. There was an antenna next to our site and our devices said that the strength was at 100%, but the band width was so minimal, neither our tablets nor laptops could even access email or a web page. The park was sparsely occupied on the first couple of days we were here, so I doubt the problem was due to an excess of devices using their Wi-Fi. The free cable was via Direct TV and provided poor reception for only 22 channels. When it rained we lost service. We will not likely stay here again. Although the park overall was ok, it is WAY overpriced for the services provided. It is more like a $25 to $35 per night park. The price before our military discount was $71 per night for weekdays and $76 for weekends.
I was really sorry that I had paid for three days before we found out: no outdoor pool and no internet since those were the reasons we chose this park. - ahmavic

We stayed in lot 180. We used Coast to Coast. This is a full hookup 50 amp spot. Its in the trees and across from a swampy area which means mosquitos.... The park is well laid out and has many amenities and buildings. I think they post to Facebook about every hour. The park has many Water/Power sites only. Four dump stations so the lines Sunday were long. Trash pick up was a nice service. There is not much for supplies a Walmart and such is 20 Miles North. Verizon cell worked fine. No chance for satellite. No wifi. We would stay here again. - BrianStacifulltimers

They advertise full hookups and let you reserve them through Coast 2 Coast, but they have so few of them, don't expect to get one. Watch where you walk, because the kids on bicycles don't watch out for you, not even if you are driving a motor home. Very, very dusty. Staff very indifferent to you, they really don't care that you chose to stay here. Glad I only booked two nights. - Bill & Cheryl

The campground setting wasn't bad but the staff was not friendly. The staff is not kid friendly and they will strictly enforce the rules including the not "traveling" (ie: biking, driving, idling) over 5 mph. They patrol the park looking for violators and reprimand violators (mostly children) by yelling at them. The bathrooms always looked like the toilets were used and not flushed and the sinks had hair in them. Guests were not treated well here. I would not recommend this park to anyone. - camp09

Very happy with the stay, will recommend to others. Waterfront access to Sebewaing River and out to Saginaw Bay. Great area, and very friendly people. - Michigan Man Forever

This was our second summer staying here, the park is clean, the sites are grassy (you can not hardly find that anywhere else) and the showers and bathrooms are clean, We plan on going back next June and maybe staying a month. This park is more for people who like to fish as you can get right to the Saginaw Bay from the river. - campergirl58

Arrived at 2p.m. July 18th 2010. The office was closed there was a sign on the door to call a number which we called an got a answer machine. The park was 50% empty so we decided to take a site away from anyone an backed in, no sooner got backed in an a truck came with a gentleman in it, saying the office would be opened later an did you have a reservation? No reservation we were just traveling. Less than ten minutes another gentleman showed up asking do you have a reservation we said no just passing through. Sometime later around 6 p.m. another person came to my door i own the campground i live in that trailer on site 2. I will be there in my trailer or in the office later but he wouldn't take any money from me then we had to go to the office. About 20 minutes later i had to go find him at his trailer and meet him at the office back at the front of the park to pay for a nights stay. Found out he had a camp host but he couldn't collect the money only the owner can collect money. It is a very nice campground large spaces but you spend most of your time trying to find the boss to pay your bill an was told that we prefer you make a reservation so we know you are coming. We don't think we will be back to the campground due to we don't make reservations because we never know where we will be going. The train came through and was a hour doing his thing whistles an slamming cars at 11:30p.m. we left early in the morning an never looked back. unhappy customer! - wheretootraveler
