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

Great little park with a very 'park like' feel. Nice spacing between campsites, lots of grass and trees. The seasonal campers' areas were neat and orderly. We were just here briefly for an overnight, but would definitely stay again if we were in the area. - Cinzia

Good Sam rate for a four night stay. Our site was a partial gravel, mostly grass, pull-thru, 50 amp, FHU site. We had good Verizon cell/internet reception. We did not have DishTV satellite reception due to the trees. The park has a nicely manicured entrance; like driving into a nature preserve. The interior roads are narrow, but not a problem for our 33' Class A. This park is very family oriented and there were many small children on the weekend, but the park was quiet at night. We would stay here again. - Dave51

The sites are reasonably spaced. Utility hookups are in good working order. There is a sufficient amount of shade trees. The sites were long enough to accommodate our 39' MH along with car dolly and car. Nice pool and play area for the kids. Out hosts are very pleasant and accommodating. We like this campground. - BurrKo

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

Spacious park with spotless bathrooms, showers, pools and laundry room. Roomy level sites with excellent utilities and good Wi-Fi. Many seasonal campers, but all units and sites well maintained. We stayed in rear of the park on top of the hill and near pool, showers and bathrooms. Huge and beautiful log home on premises is used as the community center containing library, kitchen, TV room, and video and game room. Small lake/large pond and paddle boats available, but very weedy. Pool was great but crowded. Nice quiet place with space to spread out. - wombatman

This is a very nice family campground off the beaten path. The owners keep the campground very clean. Hot clean showers. Very nice playground area, including shuffleboard and volleyball. They had a few boats for rent. They had a nice campstore and a barn with some arcade games, ping pong, and a pool table. We stayed in the campsites right across from the playground and they were nice size lots, grassy, and plenty of shade. We would definitely camp here again. - redheadmichigan

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

Campground was fine for an overnight stay but we will not return. Our site was spacious but ground was damp since drainage was poor. Laundry room was not usable, dirty with just one washer available. Several full time seasonal campers. The river is next to the campground and boating and canoeing are available. - Larry 1126

We stayed here over Memorial day. It`s an OK campground. We had a full hookup site. The hookups were in good shape. Was a little on the tight side for getting into, but OK. Most sites are shaded. No full hookups along the river. Not a lot to do here except for canoeing on the river which was fun, kids had a blast! They have an indoor pool which is small. It would be nice to also have an outdoor pool. They have a small minigolf which is run down. The space would be better served as an outdoor pool. We would go back again if in the area. - dodge guy

It features friendly staff, a nice, woodsy type atmosphere. The sites are plenty big with lots of shade. We did a kayak trip and it was great. The weather was great, so we would have preferred an outside pool instead of the indoor pool, which is very loud when the kids are playing. - Terrie G.

Great park to walk, clean, friendly people, with plenty to do for the entire family. - dalenoel

The park is very much family oriented. Lots of activities for the kids and adults. The garbage is only in the front of the park and does fill up fast. They were accommodating when power and water where down due to storms to compensate for the loss of services. We were able to receive mail and packages at the office. - Jbnau

We arrived late in the day but were received with concern about our travel and joy we made it before dark developed. While we were not escorted to our site it was quite easy to get to the proper spot. We stayed there three nights and were pleased with the cleanliness of the entire park. Obviously many folks were there for the seasonal parts of the summer/fall which allowed them to return after their work week. We arrived on a Friday and left on a Tuesday so we had no noise factor to interrupt our stay. - Birdieman

This is by far the best rustic campground on the face of the earth. Some sandy, some grass with 3 loops of 120 campsites. Lot's of woods and old oak trees 100 years old! I started camping here 5 years ago with the family and it is a true family campground. Rangers are very polite and well patrolled to ensure this stays a family setting. Each loop has a hand pump for water, and latrine. Park is well taken care of, not one leaf out of place! The Michigan Mountain Bike Association has done a wonderful job to make it one of the best 10.5 miles of riding. Please, if you walk the trails make sure you walk the same way as bike traffic. Make sure you stop at Sam's Joint and get a rack of rib's to cook over a open flame. Or Sunny Jim's pizza can deliver to your campsite as well. If you want to fall off the face of the earth than this is the place. You can also drive to the Gun Lake modern campground 4 miles away to take a hot shower, just tell the park ranger you are camping at deep lake. - Hanson

Deep Lake is the rustic campground in the Yankee Springs Recreation Area. Fantastic place to camp to "get away from it all". Most sites are in the deep woods along with a few more sunny sites. There are quite a few smaller sites or sites for tents only so be sure to check. Sites range from grassy to sandy and a few overlook the lake. Our site only had one other site within 100 yards of it. On check-in you can go thru the campground and choose a site. There are 120 sites, only half are reserveable and they are typically only full on holidays. Being rustic there are no hookups but there are several vault toilets (clean) and well water via pump available. You can use a generator during the day so long as it’s quiet. Wood available at the ranger station. There is a dump station over at the modern Gun Lake campground that you can use, less then 10 miles away. Lots of hiking trails and mountain bike opportunities. Very, very quiet. - bonscott

Yankee Springs is a relatively large campground on Gun Lake which is a flood control type man made lake. Beautiful and a great lake to ski, tube wake board etc. The campground is an older facility. During our visit the temperatures were in the low 90s. Our 30 amp service continued to cut out to the degree that the second day in I talked to the park rangers about getting my money back. They were very understanding but did suggest that I try plugging into the power pedestal with out using my Progressive Industries power and surge protector. I politely declined telling them I have more faith in the P.I. device that their power supply. A couple of real nice rangers than came by and changed the circuit breakers and plug socket. This seemed to do the trick. If it wasn't for the great service by the three rangers who addressed my power issue I would've given YS a lower rating. This campground lets anything go. They do not seem to limit the amount of people on each campsite, though the Michigan DNR reservation system asks how many people will be on a site. Next to us was a birthday party with over 20-30 people sitting around pop up shelters with numerous kids. At other sites you would see extension cords running all over the place to power all kinds of electronics beside just campers. No wonder they have brown outs when the temps get into the 90s. It a shame because YS has some real nice water front campsites that some folks had their boats tied up to shoreline posts. Swimming in the lake is easy and convenient either at the small campground only sandy beach or anywhere along the shoreline, the water is very shallow a long way out. My wife and I don't think we would return to Yankee Springs, its just to crowded and loud for our camping pleasure. - vincee

This park is nice and very quiet for as busy as it is. Fishing has several piers into the lake and the lake is large enough for all boating activities. Most sites were large enough and were arranged so groups can 'circle the wagons'. The only problem was the mosquitoes which were very bad. - dalenoel

We very much enjoyed our stay and Yankee Springs. The sites were big and wooded, the beach and fishing pier were very excellent. The playground was a bit dated but the kids still enjoyed it. My only complaint was the lack of water to each site. We knew that going in but it was a bigger issue for us than we originally thought it would be. Also I expected parking for my tow vehicle would have been included but it wasn't so I had to pay an extra $24 for a season parking permit. - tripletdad

Rustic campground with several seasonal renters. The good: lots of trees and shade, semi-level sites, reasonably free of highway noise, inexpensive. The bad: several rundown fifth wheels and trailers with cluttered sites, dirt (not gravel) pads, not-so-personable office staff, terrible wi-fI. We probably would not stay again in spite of the low price. - edmck101

Loved the campy and retro atmosphere of this park. Lots of huge trees, nice pond for fishing, canoes to rent, and old-school playground with big steel slides, swings and monkey bars. Every night the park is filled with the smell of campfires and barbecue. The roads are quite tight and the sites are short but super wide. The pool is big and sparkling clean. Great experience. - jjones5996

Everything here looked in very good shape and the maintenance crew was on top of everything. Make sure you obtain a street map for Holland as the streets are different from what we consider normal. Downtown can be difficult otherwise and street names can change without notice. Just as we got used to everything it was time to depart. Great time seeing what we wanted but we probably won't return. Only negative was our site was 30 feet in front of the pool and we requested a site further away. They had open sites but told us they were spoken for. - Mr. Camper
