Location, Location, Location. This place is probably the closest cg to Detroit and the Western suburbs. All sites are grassy and level. The pull thru sites are electric, water and sewer in the middle of the sites. The back-in sites have electric, water and sewer n the rear of the sites. In our row, back-in sites (site 55) the lot size was 25' x 75' with FHU in the rear. Good Detroit water. Good power. OTA TV has all the local channels. No trees so good for satellite. CG is expanding with another row of back-in sites.
CG is pretty quiet. Although a fair grounds, there is Walmart on one border and houses on the other three borders. Most of those staying were visiting local friends, family or visiting Detroit area.
As some have previously stated, this is not a destination cg. No pool or playground. Great for a rally as they have buildings available to use. Check you dates as they host many events here.
We stayed in a motorhome and would return if in the area. - rudy1

We stayed here for three nights to see the museums, and would stay there again. 30 amps was enough to get by and staying in the area closest to the fence bordering Walmart, gave us great free Walmart WiFi. Great connection however the campground WiFI was not working and they gave us the usual line: "Its been acting up a couple days." That seems to be the standard excuse in Michigan. To be honest WiFi can be expensive for place like this, so I understand. The price, plus walking distance to Walmart or restaurants makes this a good value. Pull thrus, easy to navigate with big rigs and towing. - User2528

This a huge campground but they put us way in the back in the smallest sites here and then proceeded to completely surround us with the carnival people/vehicles. They were literally on top of us and they sawed, welded, and used a grinder every day working on their trailer. Again, 98% of the campground was empty. It was like parking in a machine shop. I finally went in and asked why they would place us all together and was told that we didn't ask for full h/u. I pointed out that they could certainly have told us what was parking out here and given us the option to move but it was like talking to the wall. If they want to make sure that their guests never come back, they are definitely succeeding! If you have to camp here, don't give them your credit card until you check out your site first. We won't be back...... - exit to

I asked if there was tax & told most likely but it isn't broken out so what is listed is what we paid for full hookup pull thru. Our rig is 35.5' long with a small car in tow and it was very tight gettting into our site with trees all around. A larger rig would be challenged. There appears to be qute a few long termers but as far as I could see nothing was messy. I gues if you are in the business you want long termers for income. The WIFI was excellent which is normally not the case. This is not an on/off the freeway campgrounnd, you have to drive a few miles in. Campground in on a lake and there is a roped off area that has a slide & waterpark like slide and in warmer weather that would be fun for all. Due to the many trees throughout the park the sites are fit in around them. We have had worse. - petpeople

This is a very large campground, perhaps 300 spaces. They are tucked in quite close. There were empty spaces beyond us, and we wondered why they didn't space people. It was shaded, had full hook ups and were fairly level. The sites had once had gravel,but now mostly dirt. Our particular experience was good and bad. Our site had litter and garbage and many, many cigarette butts on it which was a turn off. We had a nice couple on our back side that we visited with. In front was another matter. It appeared to be a long term rental as none of the cars had hitches on them. There was a camper and a tent. If we had put our awning out, it would have almost touched the tent and over hung their sewer connection. There were a lot of teenagers over there. At one point they put up a larger tent and a helper came, parking his auto right up against our camper with the motor running and lights on to illuminate the job. This took until after ten and with our windows open, it was like they were in our living space and then the kids were in the tent talking and playing until 2AM. I am sure most people do not have this experience. They have a large, well stocked store with groceries and things folks need for RVs. They also sell discounted tickets to the Henry Ford Museum which was the reason for our visit. Coming from the south, their sign is invisible and they say the township will not allow them to move it so it was hard to find. They had 5 unisex showers that were clean. - winde

This place works if you need a place to stay in the Detroit area. It's the closest we could find to the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. The staff was friendly. We took Uber (like a Taxi) to the museum - about $35 each way. The sites out front in the non-shaded area are fairly neat with adequate space in between, but there's a real junky area back in the woods where long-term residents live. The WiFi is a joke - didn't work except once at 6 a.m. The lake is nice with a big slide kids must love. But the beach itself is tiny with hardly any sand and it can be muddy. Verizon phone and data works well. - Charles3

Interior gravel roads in dire need of repair. Potholes and dust everywhere. We experienced some rain, and many of the sites were flooded. 30 amp service and old equipment. There was some arcing in our power pole and it caused our power cord to melt into the receptacle. Thankfully I had good power monitoring equipment in my rig that prevented damage. No sewer either. For the fees charged, this campground is not a good value. The staff is below average in friendliness. Not bad, but certainly not the outgoing friendliness we see at so many other places. The county roads leading up to the park are atrocious. Both asphalt and gravel, and both in terrible, terrible condition. We traveled at a crawl and were weaving across both lanes just to avoid potholes and crazy-rough patches. I realize that is not the fault of the owner, but it certainly has a bearing on my overall satisfaction. - User3367

Campground roads are gravel and not well maintained. The camp sites are grass and almost level. We camped at site 20. Good satellite reception, 30amps, water, no sewage and partially shaded. I reserved the site over the phone. No one was in the office when we arrived at 4pm. We would camp here again, but only for a overnight stay. About 20% of sites were occupied. - tethomas

This campground was disappointing. It needs to be kept cleaned and maintained. It appears the owner lives within the campground in a beautiful well maintained home. Please put the same care into the campground. The bathroom need's to be maintained and cleaned. The place needs TLC just like the lovely home. - Gabby Smith

We stayed here very early in the season and there was still snow on the ground. Mostly seasonal campers. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There are a lot of lakes around which is probably very attractive during the summer. Lots of place to walk the dogs. From what we saw we would stay here again. A bit pricey though. - Novi MI

Spent a month and 3 weeks in pull threw site that the back side had a pile of leaves and junk so it was unusable. Restroom individuals and maintenance man both seen cleaning items in the showers and floors dirty. Park was not plowed after snow until late in day and undriveable to get rigs in or out. Only a few sites were even plowed. Monthly sites were charged .14per KWH and heat tape to parks water lines was charged to the sites. Park staff was not well trained. Question about propane bottle exchange when there exchange bottles were over due inspection individual did not know about dates! Wild cats loose in park and individual allowed dogs to run loose. One trailer was in such bad shape the individual had several tarps covering most of trailer and living in it with large pile of unknown items covered with tarp behind trailer. - Hob

This is a beautiful park in a very nice setting. Sites are well spaced, some with shade. Blazing fast WIFI, about the best we've ever encountered. We would definitely return in the future if we're passing through this area. - Bob & Stephanie

Wow, just wow.......and I don't mean this in a good way. We opted to stay here for an overnight stay.. They gave us a "pull through" which is just a spot in a field and we had to drive through a wet area in the field to get into our spot, almost getting stuck in the mud. Michigan is tough for finding a quick overnight spot when traveling through, so you take what you can. In hindsight, a parking lot looks like a palace! Lot's full time residents and some interesting RV/Trailer set ups, kind of trashy. - scubajoe

Stayed here for three nights. The campground is a mixture of travellers and seasonal campers. We had a nice spot with a view of the lake. Locals come to the lake on weekends to fish and relax. Unfortunately, we couldn't get out and do much due to rain and flooding in the area. The campground did a good job of trying to remove water from the campsites. Spots were a bit close and would be very hot in the summer. There were no laundry facilities. No wifi, but Verizon coverage was good. Cabela's is close if you need to shop or get a good meal. - tripster

I wouldn't go out of my way to come back here, but since it was on my path anyway, it was a good value at the Passport America rate. No Wi-Fi, and the AT&T signal was very weak, but Verizon signal was strong. Free cable TV, and lots of over the air channels. The activities are included in the nightly rate, not extra as mentioned in an older review. I was not charged any of the surcharges mentioned in the older review. The transient sites are in a big open field, and have no sewer hookups. There are a number of attractions for kids, especially younger ones, and this park would probably be a very good value for young families, even at the standard rate. - KAP99

We stayed 2 nights, our first time, and found the park to be clean, staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were large enough so you didn't feel crowded and we had a nice view of the lake. Roads were good for bike riding. We will return. - Br43

The park borders Lake Erie, so it is a beautiful setting. The pads are paved and very long but very basic. There is no screening between spots, but they are far enough apart that it still feels private. However, there are a lot of beach day use people in addition to campers. Dogs are allowed on leash on the paved walkway, but not on the beach. There is a park day use fee of $15 in addition to the campground fee, even if you arrive late in the day. - Dapper

The RV park is located on a beautiful Lake Erie island. Many of the sites have a view of the lake and the sandy beach. The sites are large, many pull through and very long. There are not many trees though many have been planted. The island was created with fill provided by a two million dollar grant.
Various types of sites are available; 30 amp, 50 amp, 0 amp, water or not, sewer, or not, and back in and pull through.
The location is convenient to shopping, museums, Detroit and Toledo.
They are family friendly here, watch for children playing.
This park is high on my list of desirable places.
The only caveat is it is run by the government with all that implies including an awkward reservation system. Reservation can not be made on site. You have to call people who are not there and that caused us an inconvenience. Be sure to ask what hookups are available on the site you are reserving. They will put you on a site with no hookups without telling you. - The Penguin

My wife and I have going to Harbortown for more than 10 yrs., recommending this park to fellow campers. But we have noticed a change in customer treatment and enforcement of printed rules. We see dogs off leash and site violations which seem to be ignored. On our last visit this month the next site campers returned from a day of fishing and parked their large boat on site and began cleaning fish, even though there is a fish cleaning station available. The office said they would check on this but never did. We went to the office and said we had family coming to visit and felt we shouldn't have to sit next to or smell the boat. The manager said too bad, the boat stays, it's not against the rules. Rule in the printed brochure explicitly said 1 vehicle and 1 camper per site. He was very rude and insulting and boasted that this was "my place" and if we didn't like it we could move on to another place. After we strongly expressed our opinion on the situation, we got a refund, left and went elsewhere. On leaving Harbortown another camper said others also had issues with management. To our surprise the sites at Sterling were larger, cheaper and with very friendly staff. Plus a nice view of Lake Erie. Our family arrived there and a good time was had by all! For a so called business owner (?) he needs to show respect for campers who support his business. We definitely will not return!!! And definitely not worth the $52 we paid per night, plus $4 per visiting guest. We camped in a motorhome. - Br43

The campground is easy enough to get to, but once you're there getting to your site can be unnecessarily complicated. If you're looking to get away from it all and enjoy some quiet family time, this isn't the place for you. Sites are extremely close to one another! We were fortunate to have lovely neighbors, so that part could've been worse. The staff themselves were incredibly rude and unwelcoming. I've seen the reviews that rules were not enforced, but my experience was not the case. The staff ride around in their golf carts barking orders at guests.
The park has a lot of potential under proper management, so it's a shame that it's being run in such a poor way. My family and I will not be returning. For the money you spend here (they charge for EVERY little thing) you could stay in a five star hotel with everything included.
If you're going to stay here, be sure to double and triple confirm your reservation and site. Staff is of the mind that they don't make errors and aren't very accommodating when they do. - JDunlapMH12

We stayed 2 nights at PP America, then full price ($54) the third night. So the average was acceptable, but the $54 price was in my opinion excessive for this park. The sites were a decent size with grass on each side. The pad is extremely narrow and there are trees that a growing up on each side at the entry and exit of the pull through sites. I had to back out as I could not go out forward with the trees in protruding onto the corners of the sites (45' moho).
The wi-fi was horrible. Could get it late at night or very early in the morning. Other than that it was hit and miss whether could connect, as if it did connect it was very slow. Seems like for this kind of money, the wi-fi could be better.
Hookups were good, lots of cable stations to choose from. Was open to receive Dish satellite. Mostly quiet except for an occasional train going by.
The office staff was efficient and very helpful. They recommended a restaurant in Monroe, Public House, which was terrific. - JoeVinnie

Stayed for three weeks in premium pull-in site to lake. Gravel roads with big potholes and very dusty. From site to paved road over two miles. If roads were fixed this would be lovely. - Buspuppies

This park is HUGE....almost 500 sites! Each area has it's own swimming lake with a small beach for each. The manager put us in Z1.....what a great pull-through spot! No one on our right, in front of us and lots of room to our left. It's like we were there all alone. Very accommodating staff. Close to WalMart and Lowes. We'd stay here again. - Lastrick

Haas Lake is a very big CG with lots of permanent campers of all descriptions, most were well maintained. As mentioned in previous reviews the dirt road about 1/3 of a mile leading into the CG was not a good deal, we experienced a dusty, wash board drive into the CG. Multiple bathrooms are centrally located with laundry, however the big size of the CG, compared to the number of bathroom facilities can be a fair distance from your camp site. The bathroom and shower facilities were very well thought out as to functionality, water pressure, water temp, good lighting and general very good shower stalls, sinks and toilet facilities. Maybe the best we've experienced in our RV travels as to cleanliness and functionality. Golf carts seem to be the norm for both owners, staff and residents, lots of golf cart traffic and lots of dust. This is a destination CG, short term campers seemed to be moved to a remote location in the CG. The CG has a check in time of 4 PM. We arrived about 12:30 on a Sunday with a paid in advance reservation and were advised of the 4 PM check in and asked to return at 4 PM. The CG is a gated park so we parked just outside the gate watching several RV depart for 3+ hours while waiting for the 4 PM check-in. We travel a lot and this was our 1st experience arriving at a CG when the check in time was so late in the day and refusal to park. From our view the CG had spaces, but can only draw attention to travelers the late in the day check in policy that could be an inconvenience when traveling. I would stay again, however I would avoid the CG primarily due to the dirt road and the late check in without any tolerance should a campsite be available. - Travel Talk

This campground was a bit far off of the highway, but a simple drive to reach. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were initially a bit put off as it looks like a haphazard layout of sites, all grass and dirt. However, we were pleasantly surprised.
We had the campground to ourselves. There were hiking trails, gardens and open green space. Utilities worked well. Wi-fi was spectacular (probably because nobody else was using it). The site was level. They appear to have spectacular programming for kids and appear very active during peek months.
We enjoyed our overnight stay, slept well, and exercised the animals. We would definitely stay here again. - Sheryl E

Rate is Passport America. Medium size park with lots of amenities for kids and adults. Easy to access and good interior roads. I parked on grass overlooking a pond. The staff was friendly and helpful. Strong Verizon signal and good TV channels. - RVW Traveler

Stayed here as season campers for six months. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Park, restrooms, etc., were immaculate. Unfortunately, this campground very isolated from shopping, etc. We still would recommend the facility for multiple things to do within the campground itself, and for the family activities scheduled. - User2915

Many trees, if you need satellite TV, ask for sites 12-16. Office staff are very helpful. Park is gated and completely secure. Wifi did not work in site 16. May be better closer to the office. Rural setting, nothing nearby commercially. No credit cards accepted. No discounts. - SusanRon

I am not really sure where the bad reviews are coming from. We stay here year after year and enjoy each stay. True, the road into the campground and the road in the campground are dirt but are well maintained and potholes are promptly patched with gravel. We saw many places in the campground that had been recently taken care of. The water does have an odor and if you are picky about your water I would bring plenty in. WIFI is said to be available throughout the camp, but we were not able to connect. It definitely needs to be upgraded. That covers any negatives. The staff there is very nice, very helpful and have always been pleasant to us. The beach is sandy and clean. The lake was fine to swim in with a sandy bottom. No evidence of any problems. The kids certainly enjoyed swimming and playing there. The playground was full of kids the whole time we were there, having a wonderful time. The restrooms are kept clean and the showers are some of the best we have experienced. The water pressure could be low if there were a lot of people showering. Cell phone coverage is fine for both AT& T and Verizon. Our site was large, fairly level and well maintained grass. There is a nice mix of shaded and sunny sites. We will definitely stay here again. - Meyer Camping

Awful place. The "crystal clear lake" they mention is horrible. Wouldn't swim in it on a bet. Water supply is contaminated with sulfur, so be sure have bottled water. Dirt/gravel road into campground and throughout. Wi-Fi weak and slow. Convenient overnight stop, but I'd check out other options. - macandphyl
