I agree with others that the staff here is so friendly and welcoming. I love the staggered sites that we had with the 50 amp service and we did have some trees to look at so that was very nice. There are some very private sites scattered around so be sure to ask for that if that is your desire. My only regret with the campground is that the wifi didn't reach our site so we had to visit the clubhouse where the signal was nice and strong. I did get two channels over the air and actually got some WI channels the second time I scanned. The laundry facilities are also divided, meaning there is only one machine per location so it is hard to do a lot at once. This campground is in an out of the way location from most of the area's attractions but we did an exploring trip every day and really loved that we were out of the crazy. We camped at Kampvilla RV Park & Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure to visit Crystal Mountain and catch the music on Wed and Sat nights during the summer. It was a fun evening activity. Also do not miss St Ambrose Cellars - the highlight of our trip. There is a laundromat in Beulah that can handle large loads and you can be ready to enjoy the area much faster.

Second year we stayed in September and had a great experience. The sites were all clean, trash free, with good utilities. The way the sites are staggered makes a pleasant view for everyone. Staff, family, in the office has always been helpful for whatever we needed. We camped at Kampvilla RV Park & Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Stayed for a conference in Arcadia. Great food, Cherry Hut in Benzonia, Casino in Manistee, and many local and fast food choices.

Did the art in the park at Chrystal Mountain.

Several golf and disc golf courses nearby for outdoor excitement.

This is our favorite park so far on our journeys. The site was level and shady. Roads were paved. The utilities worked great. Showers and restrooms were clean. The pool stairs were under repair, but they made sure to notify us during booking. The staff was always helpful and courteous. Wifi worked and the Verizon signal was decent. Our boys LOVED the playground, foosball, games, and everything else there was to do. Road noise from US31 was minimal thanks to the grassy berm built along the road. We camped at Kampvilla RV Park & Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sleeping Bear Dunes (45mins) is a must see. Also check out Traverse City (1 hr) area and a few of the small towns nearby like Frankfurt (30min).

Easy access and not much highway noise from M-31. Sites are mostly level, grass, 100' feet long and 30' feet wide with utilities well placed. Host was courteous and very helpful, provided plenty of local information. Interior roads are gravel, very well maintained. Large play area for kids and a full size sand volley ball court. Meet the Yellow Dragon and other critters through-out the CG. Shopping can be a challenge. We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely return. We camped at Kampvilla RV Park & Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore is a terrific trip, Hart Visitor Center, Dune Climb & Store, Glen Haven Historic Village & Store and South Manitou Island (a ferry ride), and the Historic Lifesaving Service, later Coast Guard Station, at Sleeping Bear Point. Truly Awesome.

First time here and very surprised at the quality of the campground. Crew was pleasant and grounds were spotless. Wi-Fi worked, depending on distance from clubhouse. Many activities for kids and families and great pool. Small store, great gathering room, and very good management. Nearby to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Crystal Mountain skiing, Legacy Art Park, casino, and varied shopping plus many local and national artists like Gwen Frostic. We will return.

Very good value with Passport America. We came in expecting more of a family / kids type campground, but had a nice quiet two day mid-week stay. The front section near the pool was all paved and the pull-through sites were setup so that every other site goes in one way and the site between goes the other way. So if you have someone in the site next to you, they are actually behind you. This gives the effect of having an empty site next to you all the time. Very roomy, mostly grass sites with concrete runners to park on. TV via batwing was OK, we had NBC and CBS both coming in good, ABC and others were too weak to watch. Wi-Fi was very good, but it was quiet. Verizon cell and broadband were very good. Overall a very nice quiet area to stop in and we enjoyed our two days here.

Great RV Kampground! We love this place. Great for kids and pets. Our children love the pools, playgrounds, horseshoes, shuffleboard, basketball, fishing, swimming and bike riding! You can come here and not have to leave...although there is plenty of things to do nearby. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the entire place is spotless. We've camped here many times and will continue to come back. We camped at Kampvilla RV Park & Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground has long spacious sites. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The only negative might be the gravel roads. We would stay at this campground again. We camped at Kampvilla RV Park & Family Campground in a Motorhome.
