Christian based campground. No alcohol allowed. Lots of things to do. Great programming during summer months. Swim area is well designated in lake. Horseback riding available. Staff very helpful. Dump station easy to maneuver. - Not-so-grumpy Sam

A Hidden Gem!! Wonderful place to camp. The campground staff was very friendly and always ready to help in any way. Campground host was awesome! The lots were fairly large and were shaded. The area was quiet. We would definitely camp there again! - User3075

This is a beautiful place. Very friendly and helpful personnel. Lovely short walk to river with view of small rapids. Even has a small Eiffel tower. Only drawback is no concrete camp sites. Watch out if ground is soft. Tight maneuver for 45' big rig. Also watch for large, short post close to road at each site. - travel2011

Nice Park, close to the Muskegon river and White Pine Trail. Trail is paved from Big Rapids to Reed City. - Titanium-Jim

We were there as part of a late season rally. There was still a lot to offer even with as much closed up as was. It is a very pretty setting and far from most of the hubbub. The only draw back is that the sewer connection is not with the other utilities and we had to disconnect to pull forward enough to dump. - Matt_C

Large well-maintained resort. We stayed overnight before heading to Big Rapids. Since it's late in the season, the park was very quiet with most facilities closed for the winter.
Nevertheless, the grounds were immaculate with concrete pads, grass surrounding the site and fire ring with patio table. Most sites are back in with some pull through with ours the latter. There are basketball courts, a small soccer field, sand volleyball and tennis courts along with a marina.
We would definitely stay here again. - 2sunkid

I reviewed this park last Labor Day, and hit it pretty hard for not enforcing their posted rules. I even said we wouldn't be back. Well, due to this being so convenient to family we wanted to visit, we did come again, and I'm glad we did. We had a totally different stay this year. Security was very visible all weekend, and we had no problems with loud campers after quiet hours. Same good items from last year's review with an addition- they put a slide in the pool which the grandkids really enjoyed. All employees we had contact with were friendly and helpful. The packed gravel sites are still not level, but certainly workable- it's worth the effort for the size of the sites. The only real "complaint" was the wifi, which experienced campers know not to count on especially on a holiday weekend. We would certainly come again, and are already talking about meeting our relatives here next year. River Ridge, thanks for changing my opinion. - K_and_I

This is a nice park. We chose it to be near our friends that live nearby. The sites are grassy and mostly level; it was soft the week we were there due to the recent rains. No pets are allowed which was fine for us. The park is mostly a seasonal park that gets busy on Thursday and lasts until late on Sunday. Monday-Wednesday the park is very quiet. The restroom/shower facility near our site needs updating but was adequate. The park has W/E only but there is a dump location as you leave. We found the park filled with friendly families that know each other and have been coming for years. We kayaked and fished the river - caught enough fish for lunch. We would visit again. Be prepared for little if any Verizon signal, and we could not locate our satellite signal. We did receive a few channels on our antennae. Good Sam's discount. You must pay for a county pass either a daily fee or season fee to help the county maintain the park,so this is added to your bill. - westie0506

Nice park, well managed, wagon rides for kids in evening. No dogs barking! - Titanium-Jim

We stayed in this campground for one night. While it would probably be good for a longer stay as well, it was great for an overnight visit. The entrance is a little over a mile from the US-131 exit: very easy to get to. Since the time we arrived was later, the office was closed, but our reservation and site info was posted at the office door. And the owners checked on us later to make sure all was well.
Our site was very good size, as are most sites in the park. We were at a full hook-up site in what appeared to be a newer area so there were not trees and shade, but some of the electric/water sites had good shade. There were a lot of season lease sites but they appeared to be well maintained and many were in a separate area.
While we did not use it, the pool was beautiful and appeared to be quite new. The showers appeared to also to be quite new. The bathrooms, while older, were well maintained and clean. There are a number of recreational facilities available at the park (mini golf, rec room, basketball, etc.). We could only receive a few TV stations. The cell phone reception was good. Wi-fi worked well. The nearby town does not have a lot of businesses and we could not find any fast-food type restaurants close for a quick supper.
We recommend this campground and will stay here again when we are in the area. - RXA-ADM

This is a family oriented park. They have many activities including: an arcade, free mini golf, volley ball, basketball, a playground, horse shoes, a heated pool, crafts for kids on Sunday mornings at a low cost, and tubing rentals. Coffee and cookies are served Saturday and Sunday mornings. Free popcorn Saturday nights with a wagon ride after. Local Amish come in on Saturday nights to sell baked goods and more. We spent a Saturday night here. Everyone was helpful and friendly. We had a great time in spite of the rain. We definitely will go back. The only drawbacks were the mens room had only two stalls and one shower. I was quite surprised I didn't have to wait to take a shower. The store is small. It is a room inside the owners manufactured home. If you have children, I'm sure there will be enough to keep them busy especially on the weekend. - shadowgwm

We stayed on a private lot on the property with full hookups. The owners of the park are relatively new (3 years) and have made huge improvements in the facilities. This was once a Western Horizon Park, now much improved. Our conversation with the new owners indicates they are proud of the things they have achieved, the condition of the facilities and the additions they have made. We enjoyed our stay here and would return when in the area. - SilverBear

This park has had some bad reviews in the past. The dusty roads have been fixed with a spray. The ant hills are still here, but don't see a lot of ants. We put stuff out and it is gone, so it is working. We found a site that has full hookups and still can get satellite with a portable dish. Lots of trees. Power & water are fine. Very few people here during the week. Office staff is all business, but OK. Workers are friendly and helpful. Park is not near any large city, so we probably wouldn't stay here again. Grand Rapids and Muskegon are 50 miles away. - eclp64

This is a very nice wilderness park. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay at this resort. There is a lake with some lake front sites and many shaded sites. - Kent Savage

Nice quiet park. Great location on the Muskegon River with quite a few sites on the river. We camped on the river; lots of mosquitos! Camp staff was very friendly and helpful (helping us after losing power and finding breaker in our RV). Not a lot to do, but did take a short kayak trip down the river. - michele mackey

I don't recall what we paid but it was very reasonable. We arrived on a Saturday and it was very crowded there were few sites left. It is very rustic, in the trees,and we had some trouble navigating into our site with no offer of help from owner. Some sites were fairly level but getting to them wasn't necessarily level and we did crimp the bed rail on the truck when we were getting out of our site to leave . They have a very busy canoe and kayak rental business and the big draw is the Pere Marquette River which is 2 miles away. A shuttle service is available. Arriving at a less busy time would have resulted in a better site. There may have been a few sites with water closer to the road. They do have a dump station. We stayed several days because we were kayaking. It might be okay for an overnight stop not on the weekend. - horseylady
