My rate was based on $840 for 30 days. Owners were very friendly. Wi-Fi is an on again, off again situation. Speed was measured less than 0.5 Mbps on several occasions. The campground is next to a river. About 40% of the campers had boats. The river runs from Lake Huron to a couple of large lakes. Definitely a good boat location. Cable TV didn't exist and antenna reception is marginal on 2 channels. There was 9 other channels available most of the time. Roads were gravel and on most of the sites. Room between sites was good. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our site had 30 amp, water, and sewer. Cable connection at site did not work. When we questioned the host, we were told that the infrastructure was intact but the provider had not sent the hardware needed for the system. Antenna was very sketchy. Wifi was sporadic and unreliable. The roads were wide but trees not trimmed for big rig access. We needed to maneuver around a very large branch and watched others do the same. Management took care of that tree when notified, but other trees were also in need of trimming. One large pine near our site had a low hanging bough that was right over a fire pit. Bathrooms were functional, nothing fancy here. A bit pricey for what you get. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground on a rails to trails bike path that goes into town one way or to a lake and beyond the other direction. Good utilities. Nice hosts. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean and quiet park. The owner is friendly and helpful. There re picnic tables and fire rings. Your site is gravel and there are nice grassy areas between the rigs. They have a nice play area for the kiddos. It is conveniently located for Wal-Mart and the other local stores. Water pressure is great and electrical service is consistent. We ate at Legs Inn at Cross Village and it is outstanding. We will stay here again. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has it all: nice, large sites; full hook-ups plus cable and Wi-Fi; recycling; friendly and efficient owner/managers and docks on a nice river. Very clean and well groomed. Definitely recommend. Only reason I gave a 9 instead of a 10 was that Wi-Fi reception was OK at best and a little spotty. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Motorhome.

We really liked this campground. It is a smaller campground, owner-operated as previous reports stated. It's located in a "Y" formed by M-27 and M-33 but we were not bothered by road noise at all, and could not see any traffic on the roads. We had a very spacious, grassy pull-through site on an end, shaded by great crab apple trees. There is a rail-trail next to the park, although you have to walk or bike around a short distance to a main road to access it. A very well-maintained bike trail that has won awards, it runs 62 miles from Cheboygan to Gaylord. The campground is on the Cheboygan River, with a boat launch/dock. There is a scenic railroad trestle that is part of the rail-trail just down the river a bit, which affords great photo ops from a nice communal picnic area. There are many seasonal campers, and a lot of people bring their boats in to access the river & lake system. The location is very convenient to day trips around the area, including Mackinaw City. The only downside we can come up with regarding this campground is that there is no laundry, but there is a laundromat about a mile into town. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice small RV park with excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. Sites were gravel, well-packed and level. Nice location on the clear water of the Cheboygan River with docks and launch. Abuts 60-mile rail trail that makes great walking. Very friendly owners who get extra points for recycling and for donations to local animal rescue groups instead of pet fees. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice relaxing setting, along the river. Clean well kept up park. All back in smallish spaces. No laundry. Showers and restrooms could use a deep cleaning every couple of weeks. Good satellite reception. Good option over staying in the pricier area near Mackinaw City. Would stay here again. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had the opportunity to stay here over the 4th of July weekend. The campground is located right on a river that channels to several different lakes including Lake Huron. The managers were polite and stopped to see how things were going, but were not intrusive or nosy. The bathrooms were cleaned several times a day and were kept immaculate! The campground itself is well lit. It is close to town, but not in town so you don't have the noise of traffic like some campgrounds. We will definitely be going back! We camped at Waterways Campground in a Tent Trailer.
