We made a late reservation and got a site large enough for a 40' fifth wheel with 50 amp power, water and sewer connections that all worked as expected. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner who checked us in and later, during our stay, I was pleasantly surprised when, without any further interaction, he remembered my name. Our site was grass but wasn't level from side to side and it took several layers of the orange blocks to bring the passenger side up. Interior roads are gravel and there is a 5mph speed limit. There are plenty of trees within the campground, many of those are fruit trees which may attract wasps later in the year. Being close to the M-27 and M-33 roads, I did notice quite a lot of traffic noise, especially trucks using their jake brakes. There is a boat launch and mooring at the campground which is accessible for campground residents. Some of the sites appear to be taken by seasonal guests but from my experience there are lots of good sites available for transient RVers such as myself. The washroom were always clean and had a smell of fresh paint. There was a notice to indicate the washrooms closed at 10pm but I didn't find that to be the case. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice quiet, clean campground with owner on site. Other than some seasonal campers it was never full during our 10 day stay. Sites are grass and fairly level. There is a boat dock available right on the river free for campers with canoes and kayaks, and a fee for those docking their boats. There are some amenities: playground, community room which was locked throughout our stay, showers, free WiFi. No laundry or swimming pool. If you want to explore the area, it is convenient to many places without having to deal with lots of traffic like at Mackinaw City. We did have problems with water pressure being low. Would stay here again. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this park! The owner was very nice & helpful, the site were fairly level, grass & of a decent size. The bathrooms clean though nothing fancy. There were fire rings & picnic tables at each site. Quite a few seasonals. The biggest plus for us was the location, right on the Cheboygan River which leads into Mullett Lake. We had great fun paddling up the river in our kayak! We camped at Waterways Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small park under new ownership, but it's lovely and quiet and well cared for. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It's on the edge of the river, but enough air circulation I guess to not be too buggy. Close enough to town and only 30 minutes to Mackinaw City and the bridge to the UP. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Motorhome.

Close to downtown & shopping, long nearby bike/walking path, park is clean & well kept with a friendly staff to greet you. We stayed near the end of the season so only a few campers where there. Docks on the river to watch boats go by or fish off from. If you own a boat they have a launch & a place to dock it. Some road noise from M-33, M-27 but not bad. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is based on a weekly stay. This is a beautiful campground, and the hosts are wonderful people. There were only a couple of campers when we were here. They are getting ready to close for the winter.
We had a roof top, satellite friendly spot ( 43 ) that was extremely spacious. CG wi fi worked very well, as well as Vz and AT&T phone service. There was a picnic table and fire ring in our site, which was very quiet. The only negative of the park was the low water pressure, but not so bad as to be a problem. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Walmart is about 5 minutes up the road. They have a wonderful boat dock on the property and adjacent to the river. If you enjoy bike riding, both the Michigan trails are right by the property. We we t to VFW road, made a left, and did a bike ride to Topi abee beside Wheeler Lake. Beautiful ride.
Many apple trees on the property you can pick from.

We stayed for two nights when we went to walk the Macinaw bridge on Labor Day. The couple managing it where great and very helpful escorting you to your site and helping you get parked.

As other stated this is right on the water and you can sit on the docks and watch the boats go by.

Cute place and we would stay again. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the second time we have stayed here. Park is clean and the people managing it were helpful. Park is for sale. It has river access for fishing or for boating. We would stay here again. Verizon wifi and phone worked well. Dish satellite worked well and you get a number of local channels on your antennae. Rate is for 1 week. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Boy in Cheboygan serves good food. We also ate at Legs Inn at Cross Village for Polish food. It was fantastic. There is a Walmart in town too.

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.

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.
