We stayed two nights on our way West to break up the trip. Upon arrival, the unhappy office person charged us $9/day per vehicle (RV and toad) totaling $36 for two days, plus the camp fee of $62. We had previously paid $8 to reserve a spot via website. Pretty pricey for a spot with 50amp service only. The site was ok, wide and long enough for our rig, but the fire pit had cigarettes in it and there was an old carpet that someone had tossed into the woods behind the site. Pros were the cool dunes and Lake Michigan. The showers were individual rooms, and clean, but water wasn't very hot. Our site was shaded, and overall, the park is super quiet except for the traffic sounds, which weren't too bad. The person working the gift shop was lovely, happy and glad to be there. - Kcm

The location of the park is very nice and beach access is a fun tromp through the dunes; however, we were terribly disappointed in the space we were given. If you come here, be sure to drive around the park, mark down the spots that look interesting and then ask for those. We were driving a long way and really needed a nice place to rest before moving on the next morning. We took spot #164 as assigned and found it to be a spot that was absent-mindedly created out of a corner. There is a sign in your way, the bushes are thick and hog up the majority of the space and the spot isn't level. And, to top it off, the fire pit was full of gross trash from the previous campers. We were didn't realize until walking the other loop to take the dunes trail that other far more appealing sites were to be had. My Mr. was too tired from driving and didn't want to request a different site after he had already put down the jacks and got the AC running. I don't know if it was because the park employees try to get this spot "sold" first or what, but for $31 + $9 for the park pass is way too much for what we got. I highly doubt we'll stay at this park again, but if we do, I'll be far more picky about which site we get assigned. For the record, site #54 looks spacious, shaded and has 50 amp service. If it weren't for the nice dunes and the "better loop" I'd drive right by and never give it another thought. - Ree Klein

Reviews definitely depend on time of year you camp here: we experienced the same. Park is unique with the lake and sand dunes.
The Campground in summer: yikes! Sites 94 - 171 looked like a tent city at a rock concert with some trailers thrown in. The campers looked miserable. Large grassy/dirt areas with no privacy and kids running all over the place.
Fortunately we were in the "Modern" campground, and sites 67-74 were the only spacious sites we saw. However this loop also had many very close inside sites. The outside loop sites are also subject to road noise.
In the summer I would be very cautious about the site you choose and your personal space requirements. Our site had electric and some privacy.
I would visit this park again due to the unique sand dunes and the lake BUT only off season and not on a weekend. - Breezy2

Nice location for this part of Michigan. Friends came out from Chicago to visit. Fairly level gravel site, good utilities, very nice folks. Free entertainment provided by folks getting stuck parking their 5th wheel for the summer. We had to leave our toad at the main office. Sites are very close, so the way out was exciting until we made our turn. We would stay here again as long as we get the same site - others appeared too short or narrow (trees) for our rig (43 ft). - Frances and Sparky

We were just here overnight and it was OK except for the price. $25 would have been a fair rate but we were running out of day and needed to stop for the night so we bit the bullet. Gravel sites 98% full with long term rigs. Voltage was good, but water pressure was only fair. It was convenient for our route. We might stay here again if we happen to be passing through. - zrxh14

This park is nice and clean. It says its across the street from the dunes; yes, they are but it's about a 3 to 4 mile walk to the dunes. If you bring a bike of car you will be OK. The owners of the park were very nice and helpful. They did have a playground but if you have kids like mine 15 and 11 playground was for little kids. They do have a pond but no swimming of fishing, just to look at. This is a nice campground for just relaxing, but it has no extras. We would not camp here due to how far the walk to beach is and no extras for older kids. - rv1

This "resort" is an older seasonal trailer park in the woods beside a lake which has a beach that is heavily used by local people. Perhaps they might put short term RVs in empty seasonal sites but we asked for a pull through site and these are situated on one side of the very busy parking lot for the beach. If you want a short term site do not go here. - JTD2

As a previous reviewer said, this "resort" mainly accommodates either permanent or seasonal RVs. However, we spent four nights here and were quite happy with the place. This wouldn't have been true in the summer season, however, since this resort is aimed at families with kids, and we like quiet. But in late September, it was lovely (great tree color, beautiful lake) and peaceful. The owners are very nice. We would come back here for another fall visit. - NMCamper

This was mostly a seasonal campground. Seasonal units were in decent shape. Campgrounds really should have rules about seasonal units keeping items in the camper and not in piles stacked everywhere! Our site was right off the gravel parking lot which is what we got to look at with the fenced in woodpile and propane tank. Our site had a concrete pad that you could not park on, it became your "patio" and the rest of the site was gravel. Our fire ring was a truck tire rim sunk all the way into the ground. Very hard to keep fire going as not a lot of air would circulate down there. Owners were nice but we had to go find them to check in as there was no one at the check in booth. There were only 3 other campers there when we stayed and a few seasonal families. There were no activities. They had a nice sand beach and small beautiful lake. Firewood from then was very expensive, green and most logs were too large for the fire pit. They had a nice camp store and my kids did enjoy the ice cream. The owners dog was kept in a outdoor area and barked for hours at night. The handicap shower was horrible! Had a door that did not shut or lock and was in the maintenance room for the bathroom it was filthy and the water came out black!!! Main shower building was better. - weasel007

Thousand Trails has begun selling off lots either permenatly or seasonally. The result is all of the good spots are gone. The membership they sell is a first come first serve deal with a maximum 21 days at a park. Then they sell the spots. A bait and switch at the least!!! THis park follows a theme of deferred maintenance at Thousand Trails. The place could be nice but all the monies are stripped out and a bare bones staff is left to try and hold it together. We reserved well in advance a FHU site. Arrived and the best we could get was water and electric. There are many dead trees market for removal and appear dangerous. There is an 11 foot limb that that they put a sign up for rather than cut down. Also a 10 foot power crossing. WATCH your height in a 5ver!!!! Verizon cell worked but had trouble with data during the race and peak periods. Tough to get Satellite but we pulled it off after a few attempts. Most dont! We would not recommend the park at this time. - BrianStacifulltimers

Big rig friendly and the park has a very good layout. Full service utility sites are out in the open with little shade but great satellite reception. We stayed in a shaded area (no sewer and partial satellite reception) with the dump station and laundry nearby. We will make a return trip, hopefully the entrance road will be in better condition; long and ruff. - GaHoosier

This park is over 60 years old, and probably updated the latest I'd guess in the 60's. As such everything is old and deteriorating. Our Thousand Trails membership enabled us to stay for free, as I thought that was a fair price for what you get. The access road is horrendous dirt and pot holes. Our 50 amp Rv tripped 3 times due to low voltage and the park wasn't even full. The pool was clean although the bottom needs a complete re paint job. This is a "first come, first served" park as far as reserving a particular site, and as such you might get 30 amp or 50 amp full hookup if lucky . There is a nice shady back loop but with a 11' tree limb warning, and low overhead wires, care should be noticed. There is also a bear cave with entrance through the office (fee required). Not very exciting as it was wet and muddy with all the natural features destroyed by years of over zealous campers. I think if this campground was "updated", it wouldn't be too bad. The staff calls it "rustic". Good over the air HDTV, but zero WiFi and minimal cell service. Good for an overnight stay, but that's it, if you can make it through the long access road without breaking an axle. - Jimpav

Beautiful park, well maintained, friendly staff. Loved the unusual fire rings. And our water loving dog was thrilled with the river. Also a convenient distance from Notre Dame. Would definitely stay here again. - fulltimerjan

I rated Shamrock Park a 9 out of 10 because it did not have laundry facilities. Otherwise, this is an excellent campground. The sites were spacious, there was a fire ring and picnic table, the area had plenty of grass and trees, all hookups worked fine, and the WiFi was good (it worked best during the day, not so much at night when everyone started using it). Interior roads were paved and campsites were gravel and level. We would certainly stay here again. - Melodycthomas

Very nice campground right on the Saint Josephs river complete with a boat ramp, fish cleaning station and on site storage. Park is open all year and they allow long term stays but all the sites in the park are very clean and well kept including long term. Fire pits, level gravel pads with plenty of parking, good spacing between sites, 50, 30, 20 amp, some pull thrus, fhu's, water & electric, primitive and tent sites. A little gem of a city owned park with great staff and easy check ins. Will definately stay here again whenever we're back this way. - papaken

If campgrounds were rated like hotels, this would be a 2.5 star hotel with a 5 star rating. No pool and very few amenities, but clean and friendly. Internet was strong and cell service was good, Verizon. Place was charming and staff friendly. About 10 mins from the beach in St Joe. - Irishiwasdrinking

This was a one night stop for us on the way to Detroit. Access to the park is about 2.5 miles straight off I-94. The managers are very friendly and helpful. We had a blowout outside of Chicago and had the tire replaced after we got to the park. The manager offered to help me put the tire back under the rig on the spare tire holder. We found the park very quiet and the residents kind of stayed to themselves. Interesting to walk around the park and see the little train tracks and amusement park. No dog park, but plenty of room to walk the dog. We did not have time to venture around town but seemed to be plenty of restaurants and a mall. The configuration are shared power pole so your neighbor's door faces yours. I am running into more and more parks like this. - akeller156

I've camped in over 50 campgrounds and this was one of my least favorite. It's nearly all seasonals, who were welcoming and friendly, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 sites available for visitors. The reservation process was simply a matter of getting someone to answer the phone, and no confirmation was provided other than being told my name was "on the board." At check in we waited for someone to find the person who works in the office. Our site was basically in someone's yard and the fire ring was within reach of their tethered dogs. There's a pool but it was packed with regulars who were throwing a party. No other amenities. The restaurant is not affiliated with the campground but is within walking distance. - McNamara's Band

Friendly, helpful with directions and took us to site. Had a 4th of July celebration on July 1st for weekend campers. Afternoon, a band was playing at the pool pavilion, and an evening meal offered by the park with meat, buns and serving needs provided, just bring a dish to share. Very nice. Nice pool and neat surroundings. Well kept. Tight turns on the well maintained roads. - StLouieEd

This was a nice clean park. The owners were some of the nicest people I have meet yet RV'ing. The town of New Carlisle is small, so getting use to the small town life maybe a little different. You could see Hudson Lake from campground. It's a clean lake, a good size for boating and water stuff. The park has stuff to do every weekend. The only bad thing was the train tracks were very close. Trains do come through all night. They don't blow a horn at night, but you do hear the car's on the tracks. If it was not for the trains, this park would have gotten a higher rating. We would come back with train's and all. - rv1

2nd time at this park. Sites are large and grassy. Wooded golf cart trails are a really nice touch. The river is very scenic and you can tube/kayak/fish practically from your site. Beautiful! Saw an eagle from our site! While there were some loud partiers, Campers were mostly laid back and mostly low key. Employees/owner go out of their way to assist. First night of arrival realized I didn't have a corkscrew. Asked at the desk and they didn't have one. Within an hour the desk person showed up at our site with a corkscrew...what service! Read reviews that said older rigs are discriminated against. Our friends joined us both visits, and their rig is OLD. They were treated just as nicely as we were. Only reason I didn't give a 10 is for lack of hot tub or pool. Really not necessary here as there is a swimming beach and the river. Loved it and will be back! - Jonestead Mobile

Riverfront Park Campground is well maintained and a pleasant enough place to stay. Access to the spaces was difficult to a novice travel trailer owner. Spaces are not angled for easy parking. They are straight so you have to make a 90 degree turn in a fairly tight space. No mention of this was made or help offered until we were having difficulty - unlike other RV parks we have stayed at where help was offered at check-in. However, the reason we are only giving a mediocre rating is our experience making reservations. We called months in advance to make our reservation and spoke with the owner who told us we did not need a confirmation number. We also called a month prior to our arrival date to confirm & were again told we did not need a confirmation number by the same man we spoke to previously. When we arrived at the campground, to our dismay, they had no record of our reservation, and said the full hook up sites were under construction and none were available. When we complained, they said they had one available till Monday because another camper had been delayed in arriving. This worked for us as we were departing Monday morning anyway. However, we were really put off by the poor office management practices and will not be staying here again. Reasonably quiet park, staff pleasant but completely unorganized. - vmak57

Parks in the local area are few, but this will work for an extended stay, as its access to the parking areas is rather tight (poor planning), but is fine for a smaller rig (30 ft or less). Low tree limbs is not an issue, but dust due to gravel drives is probably the biggest problem. Quiet/family oriented atmosphere with a lake/riverfront on the property. Nice people, no issues encountered with neighbors and no road noise. Many long term tenants, no mobile homes and no trash noted. Had some problems with the 50 amp service, but the office was accommodating and remedied the issue with no drama. No documentation/receipts provided for the stay from the office. If I needed to visit the area again, I would return based upon our visit/experience. - wolffden

Pool was green. Office wasn't open when supposed to be. Our site that was reserved was given to someone else. Mini golf was in disrepair. Bathrooms dirty and falling apart. Sites were not marked clearly. So unsure which power post was for our site. People driving both cars and golf carts while drinking. There was a DUI where the driver drove off the road, got stuck on a rock/tree stump, manager was called and they never came. Quiet hours not enforced. If you are looking for a family campground this is not the place for you. - Jenny42093

This place is not worth the money. New campsites were put in the middle of a road. There were no picnic tables or fire rings. The pool was not heated, like the website claims. The dumpsters were not emptied before the busy weekend. People speeding in their vehicles. I'm shocked no kid was hit. No rules enforced. One campsite had a hunk of junk in his yard. No activities for kids. No rules applied. The owners don't care about anything but making money. Dont camp here, spend your money elsewhere. - Campinlady

Looks from the outside are deceiving. Our first camp site was way in the back of park on a muddy VERY SMALL lot. Asked to be moved to a other lot, no problem. Ordered firewood from them that was so wet it wouldn't light. Tried hooking up TV but we needed a more powerful antenna. No restrooms or showers.
The name "mini" is exactly what you'll get.
Staff was very accommodating, but WILL NEVER GO BACK!!!! - Cookie hunnicutt

We've been staying at this KOA for quite a few years for our annual fall trip. There are big improvements from last year, including a new store/check in area. We also noticed the owner checking tree limbs. Our site (#92) could use a branch or two trimmed. Electric, cable box and sewer were near the center of our site.The campground's pull thru sites were full during our entire stay. We would suggest an escort to the site, as some seemed to have a problem finding their site. We'll definitely be returning. - Looney Bird

A very nice family bought this last year so it may improve as they put work into it. With that in mind, this is an average KOA with fairly close sites, level gravel, some grass between sites. There may be only one row for bigger rigs. Lots of tent sites. There was a big branch hanging over our site which just missed the roof while getting into our site, 92. WES are way back in the site and seemed to work fine. Wifi stumbles along. There is quite a bit of road noise especially near the front of the campground. If big rig, disconnect before going to the site as some roads are a little tight but manageable. Staff thought because the site was long, the we didn't need to disconnect. Getting to the site needs to be considered! Roads are paved. Forget about satellite TV as the entire campground is heavily treed. They do have cable. Pool, jumping cushion, volleyball and play area for children. Would stay again because not much choice in the area. Hope they're successful. - Team Asphalt
Jul 2016 - $48.00
Out of about 25 KOA's we have stayed in during the last 5 years, this ranks near the bottom. Roads, while paved, are very narrow. Tight turns for big rigs towing. Some extra gravel on the sites would help. Playground has old, tired and broken equipment. A couple of items looked very dangerous. The small lake looked like a cesspool. The bounce was so dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned for years. The pool was good size and looked good.
Lots of bugs, bring repellent.
Will never be back. - kegmaster
