I paid $44 a night for water and electric, NOT sewer. They offer NO discounts, including nothing off for staying 7 days. On top of that, they charge for showers! Bathroom had **** on the toilet seat. You can connect to their Internet, but download speed was less than 0.2 mbit (useless). Internal roads are paved but not in good shape. Pool is nice, and support staff friendly. Sites have lots of shade but are sandy. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed on the campground side. The sites are very close together! The showers are not clean and there aren't very many available. The garbage dumpsters were overflowing with trash. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

It's close to many attractions, but next time we'll stay at a state park because it's spacious and cleaner.

This campground is really 2 in 1. One side is rustic and older and the other is new, modern, and very well equipped.
We stayed on the newer side. They are still adding new sites here but the current ones are very nice. They are fully paved and have a large patio attached. There was no picnic table but we have our own to use.
We were quite far from the club house, pool, and showers but a new building is in progress that will have showers and laundry in this area.
We would stay again. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice place. Well kept sites for sale. Missing many potential sites and buildings so the place is still under construction. A little too much raw weedy areas for me, I guess some people like it. During my 4 nights there was a sprinkler running on a dead patch of lawn, water running down the street the entire time. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

My wife and I spent the summer at Indigo, it is one of the nicest rv park we have been in. The staff is very friendly and do a good job of keeping the park clean. A new wifi system was put in last week, works much better than the old system. The clubhouse is about half way done, should be ready for next year. If you are visiting the Sleeping Bear Dunes area or Traverse City this is the nicest park in the area to stay. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park. The overnight sites are heavily wooded so a satellite signal is very difficult/impossible to get. Other than that it is well kept with most seasonal sites neat and the staff very friendly. Would stay here again. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very well maintained resort with helpful and friendly staff at check in. The roads are paved. Our site was very generous in size, the pad was stamped concrete, very level, and we backed in. Big rig access was good. It was wonderfully peaceful and quiet, day and night. Plenty of privacy and space for our towed, no need to unhook if you are there just over night. Shade trees, lots of grass, fire pits and patio furniture. Daily garbage pick up from your coach.  A small pool was also on site. What makes this place is the wonderful landscaping, it's not been manicured to death, but rather left more natural, plenty of woodlands, wild flower areas and ponds, which adds to the feeling of comfort and privacy. Everyone we spoke too was very friendly. At present there are no bathrooms in the resort, however there are plans to build some in the next phase, but for the moment the ones at the front office are adequate. The laundry was small but clean and well equipped. There is a security gate 24/7. Very pet friendly, with lots of places to walk your pet and plenty of pick up bags and disposal stations. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are a couple of small food stores and restaurants in Empire. Very handy for the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore as well as other gems in the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Great park near Sleeping Bear Dunes! Many seasonal campers but all folks from front office to nearby campers were very friendly. Sites were wide, long and level...but be aware of dense shade so pretty dark even in the daytime. Cable TV would be a definite plus. That being said it is a very restful park! We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the finest high end RV resorts we have visited. We had a beautiful spot next to a pond and a fountain. The lots are spaced widely apart with wildflowers in between. All the lots are paved with ample room for your RV, car, chairs, grill, and tow dolly. And, the people there are so very kind and welcoming. Your are midway between the Platt River, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, and charming Glenn Arbor. If you are looking for a quiet and pristine vacation spot, this is a terrific option for you.

One of the best parks we've visited. Entire park is surrounded by woodlands. Sites are landscaped and very private with driveways of stamped concrete. Park Internet service was the best we've ever had and local Verizon phone and data (4G) was also very good. Indigo Bluffs is a stone's throw away from Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and the entire area has a lot to offer -- reminded us of Wisconsin's Door County peninsula. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Marked no for restrooms/showers because the resort side does not have restrooms/showers available. There are restrooms/showers on the RV Park side and they are clean. The resort side is set up as a buy into, and several of the sites are owned with very nice landscaping and permanent buildings. The sites have stamped concrete drives/parking areas. Most have portable firepits and outdoor furniture. Very nice place to stay, and if there are sites still available next time in area, will stay again.

This is a great resort in a great area. It is laid out on a natural prairie like piece of land. The roads are easy to navigate and the sites are generous with patterned concrete pads. The areas around the sites are planted in wildflowers with a few trees and in one area a grove of trees. The owner lots are landscaped pretty well, but you don’t get the luxury resort feeling: just a really comfortable, natural feel. Most sites had firepits with chairs. If you were renting an owner site there were often many more amenities. There is so much to do in the area: Kayaking, Hiking, Fishing and more. We saw three teenagers go paddle-boarding up one of the slow moving rivers! This is an outdoor lovers paradise. Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Sutton’s Bay, Leland and Traverse City are nearby for world-class dining and shopping. (OK the dunes are for hiking.) Back at the resort, the staff is helpful, fun and friendly and the folks who are there for the season and the transients all were friendly. There were several get-togethers and potlucks. I don’t think IB is a 10: more likely and 8.5 compared to some really luxurious (with prices to match) parks we’ve stayed in. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Great campground. If in the area, I would stay here again. My family did not want to leave. This place is in a great location to see the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park and to take advantage of all the outdoor activities (or just relax). There are a few quirky things you should know and be ready for--hook-ups are strange (bring extra water hose and electric cord), no cable, coin showers ($1 is about enough). Other than that, this place was super! We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is beautiful. It is for motorhomes only in the section we stayed in. The sites are concrete stamped to look like slate. The sites are huge with an roomy area where there is a firepit and 2 chairs. There are wildflowers planted in the large green spaces between sites. There is also a common seating area that has three levels where they have outdoor chairs, sofas, benches and a firepit all surrounding two ponds with a waterfall cascading in between. The residents are friendly as are the owners. The pool was nice, offering adult swim from 12-1 Mon-Fri. In addition to the 50 amp outlet, there is also a second 2 spot outlet in the firepit area. They also will allow you to wash your coach and/or toad at the site, something we have never seen at any other parks we have stayed in. The park complex also has another area where all types pf campers can stay. It is totaly shaded. The complex is very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The only complaint we had was the lack of cable connections. At a cost of $60/night we think it should be available. We would stay here again. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Very upscale park. Very clean, quiet, well laid out and sites have plenty of space. Sites are for sale but they also rent them out. Friendly staff. Very near Sleeping Bear Dunes and not far from Traverse City, MI. Nice base camp for the area. Would camp here again. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.
