Here are a few reasons why we will never go back and do not recommend this campground to others: 1-It is so close to the 401 that you have to talk louder than usual to be heard; traffic is just that close and constant. 2-There must not be any security patrolling at night; otherwise we wouldn't have had to hear our drunk neighbours singing to their blaring music, yelling/swearing and honking their golf cart horn until 4am. 3- Campground in general was rowdy at night and people drive their golf carts way too fast for the size of the roads which brings me to my next point. 4-Camp sites are much too close to each other. Visibility, especially concerning children, becomes an issue. By the time you see a kid or if a dog runs out onto the road from behind a truck, there's little time to stop, even at the 10km/hr limit. - vross

I camped with a friend, we had a very relaxing few days. Very peaceful at night sitting around the fire. The owners came to sit with us for a bit. Very kind and friendly people in the park. Lots are spacious and offer a range of sunny to some shade. Site surface was gravel and grass and featured a fire ring and picnic table. Clean restrooms and showers. - Betty Laforest

Why would anyone want to camp here? It is located between highway 401 (a major trucking route) and Windsor Airport, so the noise never stops at any time - day or night. It is full of loud drunk people on busy weekends, not to mention the seasonals driving their golf carts around at midnight. The full service sites are basically a large open space with hardly any foliage at all, and you feel like you are in some trailer park, crammed in on top of one another. The owner is quite miserable and will find a way to have a problem with you. The wood is overpriced - you get around 8 pieces for $7.50, and the store is under-stocked. There are many other campgrounds in the area, and even though they may be a longer drive to Windsor, it would be completely worth it to make the longer trip. It may be okay for young singles (the required age is 21 to rent a site for some reason, not 18 or 19), but it isn't a place I would take a family who wants to go camping to get away from a busy life in the city. Sure, there may be a pool, fishing, and a playground, but what campground doesn't have this, at least nearby. After the experiences we've had here (and we are quite tolerable), we don't plan on ever returning. - Bob_T

I went during harvest weekend and it was great! Although it was raining on and off, the campground host provided entertainment . The trick n treating for kids was awesome. I would do it again. - NettaDS

We picked here because it was close to family. Nice park - a little noisy with late (after 10) night activities (People sitting around fires talking, kids riding bikes to bathrooms, etc) but not bad. Our particular site wasn't grassy and had lots of sand/dirt - but it was underneath a large shade tree. Can't have everything! The campers behind us brought an Xmas laser projector and it looked like the whole tree had fireflies in it - pretty cool. - RosalitaAS

I have never stayed in such a CLEAN state park!!! The restrooms were immaculate!!! It seemed that staff was constantly cleaning them. Individual showers with great temperature control was much appreciated. The sites were small and there was not much privacy between sites, but we thoroughly enjoyed the friendliness of the campground host and the activities that were offered. - dexie

Great park, well maintained but huge. Staff was great. They took us to our site and came by about an hour later to check in on us. The Road is dirt, and we came in a rain storm and it was not nearly as bad as some have stated. The only issue is at night the park is huge and it is about 3 miles around, there are no lights at night and you do not have any signs that light up, you can barely see them, they could use better signage for coming back when dark other then that a great park. - tazman1953

We spent 3-1/2 months here at a seasonal, monthly rate. Electric is additional. This is a lovely gem just outside major city limits. It's 2 miles of dirt road from the paved main road entrance so be prepared for lots of dusty cars! There are 4 lakes and they limit their seasonal guests. There are probably 40% of the site's that are yearly rentals and it's very heavy on locals who just come out to enjoy the lakes on the weekends. Our site had 3 huge shade trees which kept us cool during the hot summer but we were unable to get a satellite signal so we put our Direct on vacation hold. We were able to pick up limited local channels with our antenna. All the staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of planned family activities on the weekends. Grounds are immaculate. We are originally from this area so we spent a lot of time visiting family & friends but there's lots of nice attractions nearby. - monamonaco

Nice park with lots of lakes. Park is full of almost full-timers. Lots of planned activities. We had fun. Some 50amp sites are shaded but all taken by full-timers. The rest are in the open. Dirt road into park is bad and muddy as is the roads in the park. Our site was at the far end, so WiFi was non-existent. And we had to drive to the office or restroom. Over priced but, Would stay again if closer to WiFi. - newbies2016

We have been here several times since it is the best and closest location to the Pontiac/Detroit metro area. That said, the 30 amp electricity is ancient and you will definitely need an extension cord, many of the lots are unlevel, they do not trim the trees in the road leading around the campground, and there is only one dump station for the whole park. Be careful on your lot selection and it can be a good spot. Quiet during the week. Lots of kids on the weekends. Site 159 is a level open site with morning shade. - Freedom Bus

My husband and I love this state park. The private sites are great. A nice quiet park. - 1Airstream

We were looking for a campground near DTE Energy Music Theatre. We planned to attend a concert and wanted a short drive back to a campground. We are self-contained and don't use the facilities, except for an occasional shower. We stayed during the week.
This campground is quite nice and an easy 10 mile drive to/from DTE Theatre. The campground staff was friendly and helpful and the park was clean and well maintained. There is a variety of campsites - larger, small, combined, shaded, partial shade, full sun, private, open. There is no WiFi. Cell coverage for AT&T and Verizon is adequate. The showers were good. - dsvt

Wow, what a terrific park this is! There are expansive green lawns between sites with nice trees in the C loop (not so many in the A and B loops). Cement pads, places to park two cars, 50 amp service, great picnic areas, very friendly hosts at the gate. It has a laundry too. We wanted to change sites (lots of small noisy children next door) and they were totally accommodating. We cannot recommend this highly enough. - twestover

Weather was miserable but the campground cleanliness and layout made up for it. Beautiful park with scenic views and easy walk ability. However, even with the cold rain the mosquitoes were evident and I can only imagine due to low, shady and swampy spots within the park that it can get quite "buggy". Yurts and cabins for rent also. Yurts were in the low swampy spot but the cabins were placed adjacent to the lake and had a great sunset view. - Hidden Barb

Stayed here for 10 nights (end of July - early August 2016). Good value for money. Accommodating staff. Very rough roads leading to the multiple campground areas. Lots of family things to do during your stay ; make sure you ask for the coupon book if you are staying longer than 6 days (good for "free" honey wagon visit on Wednesdays).
Only problem I had is that they messed up my reservations (wife and I, and another couple/camper). We had specifically requested SHADE (made reservation 7 weeks prior) and they gave us total sun with a few 8 foot saplings near by. They had significant difficulty finding us appropriate campsites (due to our length of stay and how busy they are on weekends). They gave us a bundle of firewood for our trouble (nice).
They DO have WIFI, which was VERY GOOD, strong signal and acceptable internet response .... very nice surprise. - wcraig

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Wildwood Golf and RV resort . Food at the golf clubhouse was very good and very well priced. Pools are warm and heated and very clean. Buddy sites are great if you're travelling with somebody. Good location if you want to travel around and see the area but there isn't very much to do here at the resort unless you play golf. - Weiner

We originally chose this park because of the proximity to Detroit and that was a big mistake. Crossing the border by bridge or tunnel was a major hassle. We will never even think about using this campground again and unfortunately it's not the campground's fault.
The facility was adequate and well kept, but if you don't play golf there's not much to do there. The sites were pull-thru and full hook-up, but they are all jammed in next to each other.
There is no park store on site in case you forgot something, but they do have ice and overpriced firewood.
The resort is filled with seasonal campers as well as park models, so I'm not sure the nightly rate reflects the lack of amenities. - semodan

Very large park, lots of seasonals. This seems to be largely a snowbird park. Our rate reflects an off-season discount of 10%, but it is still expensive. The transient sites are all pull-through but are back to back. Still, by parking the right direction, you can face away from your closest neighbor. The park is very open with only a few trees, and is surrounded by a golf course. We were here in the final week of operation, and the few other users all seemed to be full-timers like us, just staging to cross the very nearby US border at the appropriate time.
We would probably stay here again. - wandrr

As others have said, this is a no-frills park within the county fairgrounds property. The sites are grass with many pull-throughs. We were in the "back" row, farthest from the entrance because we chose not to spend the extra $5/day for sewer since it was a short stay. The e/w only sites were fairly close with 1 picnic table and fire ring per 2 sites. The camping area was fairly full but quiet. The grounds are fenced in so felt protected. The staff was friendly and helpful. Interior roads are gravel. Park is easy access off I-94 with many restaurants, stores (Walmart, Meijers, Aldi, Menards) very close. - fredkelk

We were looking for a park we could use as a base to see the Henry Ford and Greenfield Village (about 20 miles/30 minutes each way). Easy access from the highway. Sites are really close together, so glad we didn't have immediately adjacent neighbors. Good power, good water pressure, good OTA TV, really good WiFi. Bathrooms are really dated. They see a lot of use during fair season, I imagine - so clean, but really worn. Walmart literally next door - there is a fence between, but a paved, lit path connects them. Good dump station on site. - Loggenrock

Community let we down again, this is not a 7. Large open grass area with sites. Bathrooms are old. Water tastes terrible. Voltage below 120 on surge protector. Must too expensive for what it is. OK for a 1 or 2 night stay. - newbies2016
