2 Parks near Buchanan, Michigan
Jul 2015 - $10.00
First the positives. Sites are very spacious, plenty of room for a big rig and space to park an extra vehicle. Lots of shade and also open spaces for satellite dish. Has river access. Friendly, helpful staff.
Now the negatives. Access road is a one lane gravel road for about a quarter of a mile. I don't know what happens if rigs going in opposite directions should meet! Before you set up your rig on your site be sure and check the electric on the post! We had to change sites due to non existent electric but the clerk in the office said it was available! We moved to a spot with good 50/30 amp. Another negative is the availability of water! No tap at our site. Had to use 2 long hoses to reach an available tap. When another rig moved in behind us he didn't have any tap available. Maintenance worker brought over a splitter so the guest could hook up. There is a laundry room. It is clean and there are 4 washers and 3 large dryers. But wait, one washer and one dryer have locks on them. They are only available for use by staff who clean the park models. So park guests only have 3 washers and 2 dryers available! Lousy set up! Now the biggest negative. No WiFi. Most of the time our hot spot did not work. At best on our Verizon phones we only had 2 tiny bars and then the connection was bad. Lots of dropped calls depending where in the coach we were sitting/standing when on the phone.
Originally we were only scheduled to be here for 3 nights but due to mechanical issues with our tow vehicle we had to extend for a week. The park was very kind and kept our daily rate the same ($10) even though they could have raised it. We very much appreciate that consideration. We would stay here again if ever in the area. - Rick & Karen

This is a nice little park. About 1/3 of the sites are full hook up, the rest are without sewer or for tents. The full hook up area is lightly shaded and gravel/grass for your site. There are many cement pads thru the park but none with full hook ups. Many of those sites are very nice, very shaded but if you want satellite reception you probably won't get it. Anything around the river is without sewer. They do have a dump on site and they also have a honey wagon. I would return again. - krisbw

We camped here the 15th of June. The pool and lodge were not open. Both were closed for maintenance. They thought the pool would be open in the next week or two. There is a new manager this year and he is trying to get things into shape. The road into the campground is narrow dirt and gravel. Hope you don't meet another unit going the other way. The water connections are hit and miss. frequently four or five to a connection. The sites are level and many have concrete pads. Verizon is two bars. Would come back but only because I'm a Thousand Trails member. - BobWW

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
