I have stayed at many campgrounds throughout the US and this one has got to be the worst I have stayed at. Its located on the Grand River and is surrounded by swamp and algea filled holes that are meant to pass as fishing ponds, but really are just breeding grounds for mosquitoes which swarm relentlessly ( I have never seen so many!!!). The roads are gravel and are a mixture of dust and mud and pot holes. ( If you have a nice vehicle don't bring it here ). The one bathhouse they have avaible stinks of sewage because of pour ventilation and has showers with sticks you have to hold down to turn on the water. If you let go the water turns off. And there is no parking so you have to walk from your campsite to the bathhouse. If your looking for a enjoyable vacation I would not recommend this place. - tomcruise

The campground is conveniently close to Grand Rapids. The campground roads are very rough and in poor condition. There is limited parking at the check-in area. The "lake" is actually a pond, and while there is a small beach area the water is not what we consider suitable for swimming in. There is free Wi-fi and it worked well. The owners escort you to your site and give you directions while you back in. The owners are friendly and helpful. - treetime

I just love this campground. We didn't stay last year and I really felt like my summer wasn't complete. The owner reminds me of my dad and he even helps me park my camper when it is just the kids and me. It is small enough to feel safe and quiet enough to make me happy. - Deek

We chose this park due to the rating in the Trailer Life 2009 and the fact that it was the closest to the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. I am wondering if the reviewers have even been close to this Park. When we were connecting to the water and electric, we had to dodge dog waste, and the hook-ups were so far from where we were parked that it took all the length of the cord and hose to completely connect. The directions in the TL were only from the South and they are poor. The Manager said for me to write as he had been complaining to no avail. The Office area looks like a junk yard with old vehicles and stuff piled all over. We would never go back. - Arizona Traveler

Nice park with private lake for swimming and fishing. Very friendly staff. Good value for the price. Easy access. Only detriment is highway noise. - Al Z

Very noisy from highway sound. Nice lake for fishing. Very rude staff. Not a friendly campground as most sites are seasonal and snow birds have junk all over the sites. If your coming in for the night or a few days you get a site 200 hundred feet or less from us 131. They charge guests to park. Not a happy camping experience. - HappyCamper001

Very nice clean park. We had a nice grassy site along the lake. Lots of seasonal campers, mostly seniors and everyone was very friendly. Only about 30 minutes from the Frederik Miejer Gardens, which was our destination. - tagnrocky

This campground needs a lot of improvement to justify charging $40/night. We full time and needed access to Grand Rapids for a few days. There are a lot of stored/permanent RV's here and many of them are pretty run down. The sites are a mix of gravel and dirt and very close together. They have a gate key that they want a $20 deposit for. They weren't even using the gate the few days we stayed. The office phone didn't seem to work as we never were able to get them on the phone to make a reservation. The owners are nice and try to be helpful but this place needs some work. - RoadtripImages dot com

Park was very clean. Very quiet and it was full. Campsites were clean. Not all sites had grass. Ours had pea gravel. Very shady. Had a problem with gate key first night. Had to buzz for help and took 10 minutes to get in. But other than that, real nice and friendly place. - Bravesmom

It is right next to a very small airport, but it is small enough that noise was never an issue. Even with the close proximity to civilization, it still has that peaceful remote feel. The campground is situated right on the Grand River. They even have a huge riverboat, but unfortunately it had just shut down for the season so we didn't get a chance to ride it. The sites are very spacious and level. The entire campground was very well maintained and everyone we encountered was pleasant. When we arrived and started to level our 5er, we began to have a problem with our front left jack. It wouldn't move more than 4 inches. We were able to manually level the camper for our stay, but dreaded trying to get it back on the truck. When it came time to leave, I was struggling with the jack and a nice couple dropped by to chat. We discussed several things, including the jack problems, and they suggested reaching out to the campground owner for help. As it turns out, after they left, they must have told him about us, as he showed up minutes later offering to help. He ended up getting a forklift to help take some pressure off the problem jack so it could raise us up high enough. We really don't know what we would have done without him. Even the RV technician who had come out didn't have any suggestions for hooking it up (the part wouldn't arrive in time). We will definitely return to this beautiful campground next year! - The Rowlands

We booked our family vacation here based on their website, which promised so much but delivered so little. Campground smelled of dead, rotting meat. Pool was green but was promised "We're working on it." Electrical boxes worked sporadically. Dog waste from previous campers not cleaned before we arrived. The worst though, is the customer services. Their brochures highlights activities available telling you to get more information at the office. When I inquired at the office the girl snottily said "Did you get a brochure at check-in?" I answered yes but I had questions. She tells me "to go read it again or I suppose I could sit here and recite it for you." When we complained to the manager he admitted to hearing the conversation but he states his hands are tied, the owners are aware but won't change. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to spend your hard earned money and time! - Vanroller68

Whoever put their glossy brochure together should get an award. This is an old worn out campground with the bare essentials. The main pool was green when we arrived, but we were assured it was being attended to. It is no longer green, but it is now 11am, and I have yet to see anyone cleaning or testing it in 2 days. So far I have been here 3 days, and they have yet to clean the site next to me, as there is garbage still on the site. They are skimming the edges of false advertising. If you are looking for a campground with all the bells and whistles, this is NOT it. - eener11

They have many activities that you don't normally see at a campground. These include canoeing & tubing on the Flat River, horseback rides and a 9 hole golf course. Since I stayed on Memorial Day weekend they also had a number of special activities for the kids. Most of the sites are very large and clean with no pads but most sites have a nice grass surface. They have 30/15 amp electric, water, fire pit and picnic table at each site. No Wi-Fi is available but Verizon cell and data service was good. I did the canoe float down the river and an hour horseback ride, both were very enjoyable. While the roads are dirt and a bit bumpy I had no problem with them going the posted 5mph speed limit. Problems I had include there were constant low voltage problems (temps were in the mid 80's and the campground was full) and my Surge Guard shut off at least a dozen times on my 2nd day. While they are located on the Flat River, there is no way to easily access the river upstream so you can float down to the landing stop, you have to take their bus, for a fee, to a drop off point a number of miles away. They could provide a spot upstream that could be walked to if they would just turn the far end campsite into an access point. Quiet time was not enforced with loud parties going on until after midnight. Even though they had a camp store close to the camping area you couldn't make reservations for their activities, you had to drive close about a mile to the main office. The firewood they offered for sale was close to worthless, it just wouldn't burn. As much as I really wanted to like this campground the negatives outweigh the positives. I doubt that I will return - HobbyTalk

If you have 2 kids, 10 and under, this is your dream! Lots of blow up jumpy things and candy gooies in the store for them.
If you are like us, avoid on weekends at all costs.
Place is like a former KOA, but needs about 100 loads of gravel to level out sites that are mostly dirt and tree roots. Lots of trees. We ask to change from a rooted dirt site and they put us on another dirt site, even though there were unused gravel sites available.
We will probably not stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

Great family rv park. Lots of organized activities for kids and many very unique and popular types of playground equipment. Dramatic improvements over the last 4 years in many areas. The park is a great mix of seasonal campers, vacationing families with kids, and and a few overnighters. Lots of shade. - freestyle freddy

We booked one of their two "premium" RV sites on the corner, adjacent to the row of full-timers. The roads at this campground are VERY narrow for big rigs, and cars from all of the campers and their guests are parked within inches of the road or on the road for virtually the entire way around the campground. Sites are all back-in around the perimeter of the campground, and I'm experienced with my rig and not at all intimidated about back-in sites. But with the narrow road and cars parked all along and on it, getting into my site was a challenge. Most other campers were not around to move their parked cars, though I suspect a couple of on-lookers were just curious to see how close I could come to hitting some! I was able to get into this corner site, but if I were at any of the non-corner sites, my 42' RV would not have been able to make the turn to back-in unless I was able to round up the campers who were parked all along the road.
Once in the site, I had to back DEEP into the woods until I could find a somewhat level spot. My site was not paved--most of them weren't, and there was very little gravel to help level things out. My heavy rig squished out what little gravel there was anyway, but eventually I got to a point where I could level--but only with my front wheels suspended 3" off the ground.
This is an old-school campground, primarily targeting young families. There are loads of outdoor activity for kids, and there are MANY kids there to enjoy it. Noise died down at around 10PM, and even the parents were exhausted by then so we did have quiet evenings.
Location was convenient for our purposes, but we won't stay here again with our rig. Anything bigger than 35' probably should seek other options in my opinion. - Rob40G

This was our first stay at this campground and I have to say that we will be back. First thing to note was how friendly the staff was during our whole stay. Firewood is delivered to your site, bathrooms and showers were always clean. Pool is not heated, a bummer for the kids as it was in the low 60's the entire weekend. Also the store was not well stocked. We forgot to bring hot dogs so the owner gave us a pack from his own freezer! Little gestures like that make a world of difference. Sites are enormous, but some are not very level. - 08toyo

We stayed here while going to Michigan Adventure which is approx 20 min away. The campground was very clean had just been taken over by new owners that season. There is a play ground for younger kids and a very nice pool. The camp store didn't have a whole lot but I'm sure it was just a start for them. The sites are the biggest I have ever seen, I'm not sure of the exact size but there was a lot of room. There was a golf course right down the road that looked very nice as well. - inkd4life

New Owner. Really cleaning up the place. Close to GR. We needed a place to stay close to Grand Rapids, and most places are closed after September. This and one other park were our only options, and this one was cheaper. New owner was fixing, cleaning, and painting the 3 days we were there. Seems to be really shining up the place. There were a lot of seasonals, but plenty of space for us, and our site was rather large. Wifi was good, as there were 5 different connection options! We had 50amp and Water, and there was a Dump on-site. Owner delivered firewood to us. - Unknown_Normal

Our entire 8u softball team travelled three hours to camp and play in a tournament there in Hudsonville. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Campground was spacious. Nice roads. Shaded with nice big trees. We would camp there again! - Mallorie

This was a fairly nice campground, with wide, all gravel roads and sites. Sites all looked pretty level. We had full hook-ups plus cable TV, and of 13 campgrounds we used on the trip this one had best, functioning WiFi by far. Verizon coverage was also good here. One note though: avoid site 22 (which we had) as it is right next to playground. Staff was friendly enough, bathrooms and pool cleaned daily and in good condition. Bathrooms and showers had good water pressure and hot water was good. Although initial entry way to grounds was not all that appealing, rest of campground appeared well maintained. Most sites are surrounded by mature pine trees. Besides pool and playground, they have some horseshoe pits, a laundry (which we did not check out or use), and a minimally stocked camp store. While there were a fair number of seasonals, there were still plenty of nice spots for travelers. I would stay again. - We Roamed and Rambled

Campground served our needs for a one night stop and was the only one open in the area. It looked like there were lots of amenities during the season but all were closed for the winter. In my opinion, the overnight price should have reflected the lack of access to the pool and other amenities (but maybe just keeping the water on and sites working in the winter substantiates the high price). All on-site services worked fine and were in good repair. Site was level, nicely wooded, and long and wide enough. Close to town. - Janau NC

KOA is usually a good value and while some are better than others, you somewhat know what to expect. This KOA was tired and basically seemed uncared for.
It didn't have the neat, tidy appearance, the staff did not follow through on internet and it lacked TLC.
We would not stay here again or recommend it to others. - Cinzia
