Yes there are 1100 sites but about 900 are seasonal campers. The grass strips are wide enough but not level. This is a very busy campground! Vehicles and golf carts are a constant! Speed limits are ignored. Not all sites have a sewer available. The trash compactor was very nice. WiFi was OK also. Water pressure was very poor! This seems to be a place that locals come out for the weekend to enjoy the entertainment and family come visiting which makes it a lot busier. The office is friendly but the Michigan campers are not! The entrance and exit have potholes and the check-in area blocks traffic. This is not the kind of park that we enjoy staying at! We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park for an overnight stay or a week while visiting Michigan.

The sites are on grass, large and most are level. The restrooms were clean and modern. The pool is huge with plenty of chairs.

Unfortunately the electric service is very poor. The voltage was so low, 106-108 volts, that I had to run my refrigerator on gas (Norcold recommends running on gas if the voltage is below 108)

We were the only camper in the row so I would not want to be here if the section was full. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall, I would describe this campground as a community of 700 permanent residents with a few, largely ignored, visitors. The campground is dumpy, as you would expect, with a lot of residential stuff smashed in to RV sized lots. The staff is unfriendly, unwelcoming, and rude. All in all, depressing. I gave it a 6 versus 5, because our lot was big and roomy, and there is a free, par 3, 9 hole, golf course that can be used. We will not return.

Huge campground that appears to cater mainly to seasonals. Paved interior roads that could use some work, grass sites are not very level. Power good, water pressure good but quality is poor, very metallic tasting. Wi-Fi good. If you have made a reservation, you will be checked in at the front gate house. You won't even have to get out of your rig. Security at entrance and roving patrols day and night. 4 washers, 4 dryers for 1160 sites, nowhere near enough. Might stay here again, might not.

Rate is Passport America discount. The people and staff were very friendly. Hookups were good. All restrooms except the one by woodview and canal were very nice. The woodview one should be torn down and redone. Staff indicated that there was a lot of regulations to update and they were working on it. We had a waterfront site which was very nice but was not a full hookup. Would stay there again. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This park has so much potential but it was very difficult to get past the maintenance and structural issues we encountered. For starters, the "washroom" facility at the end of our street (17th) was awful, and I will even go so far as to say "disgusting". This building looks like it used to be a horse stable or some sort of animal barn that has been converted to washrooms/ showers. The toilets have been recessed into concrete slabs and the showers are rusting and unacceptable for use, in my opinion. The Main bathroom at the end of 2nd Street was much more modern but was in a state of filth and disrepair for the entire weekend we were there. Of the few washroom stalls, the one door was broken the entire time and many toilets were plugged. The toilet seats were discolored and need replacing. One shower had no water, which I discovered after I had removed all of my clothes and was ready to use it. The paved roads are a great feature but they were VERY bumpy and buckling in many areas. The pool was beautiful but the deck area was very uneven in several spots and the cement looks like it has been repaired several times. On a more positive note, the staff was extremely friendly upon entering the park, leaving, and while working at the pool. The park is very large and scenic in some areas. It also offers some unique features- cafe, mini golf (but bring your own clubs/ balls, beach, and horse shoe pit. All in all, our experience left us less than thrilled. This park is a diamond in the rough and could be helped considerably by some extra cleaning and maintenance. It is showing its age and requires more regular cleaning due to its 1100 sites and visitors. As weekend guests, we also felt that the number of golf carts used by the seasonal campers was overwhelming and distracting. For these reasons, I wouldn't recommend it the way it is now. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Huge campground, lots of seasonal campers. Hard to check in, as the office area cannot accommodate a motorhome with a car. Same for getting propane, there is no room to pull up to the tank. Grassy and uneven sites. Quiet, country setting near Goose Lake. I would stay here again. Friendly staff. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We used our CampUSA and saved 50%, full hook-up, pull through site. This is a large campground, lots of seasonal campers but plenty of room for short stay folks. We will be staying here on our return to Alabama from Mackinaw City. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a BIG place. Stopped for an overnight stay. Good pull thru with enough space to maneuver easily. Plenty of open spots this time of year. Did not use any of the facilities. They seem to have a lot of family activities during the summer months. Staff was friendly. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very little shade available for big rigs. We had an "episode" when we went for a day cruise with our RV. We left the water hose hooked up when we left. When we returned about 4 hours later, the hose was missing. We located it under and along a permanent residents trailer across the road. This kind of problem will make sure that we never stay here again, and is the reason for our downgrade. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

If you like huge campgrounds then this is the one for you. We were lucky enough to be given a site in one of the many lanes that was totally unoccupied but since the water was on the other side of the RV (shared every 2 sites) we had to change the site as both our water hoses wouldn't reach the spigot. Forget about the Wi-Fi as the service was so poor that I couldn't get a signal most of the time and I was fairly close to the antenna. The office staff was friendly and helped me find a RV repair place for a lost equipment piece. They have a free par 3 golf course but we opted to find a reg golf course as there are many in the area. We had a small problem finding the campground as we missed the turn into the place - the sign was small and partially hidden. The digital receiver picked up nearly 30 stations so TV watching was OK. We would not stay here again - we felt that the place was a dump. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is mostly seasonal campers park could be nice with some work. We where there and the park was packed. The bathrooms were not clean at all toilets were plugged up shower curtains were torn down in women bathroom. You need a long hookup for your dump tanks on a full hook up site like 25 feet or more. All the seasonals had PVC pipes running to the drains. Had a nice new play ground for the kids beach was OK. Maybe the bathroom thing was because of the holiday weekend and how full the park was. You have to look out for the golf carts everybody has one. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As many of the older reviews have stated, the campground is very outdated and unmaintained. The one shower/restroom house we used was pretty rough. of the 8 stalls, 6 are boarded closed, 2 are "operational" as they are sitting on painted wood boxes. There were 2 working showers. The facility was flooded due to the storms the night before. There are many many permanent units that are absolutely hideous. There are very few trees and the sites are pretty tight together. Picture a traditional trailer park and then lower the bar about 5 feet. The grounds are huge as this is a campground with around 1100 sites. We came here on the recommendation of some friends and I can honestly say that we'll stick to the State Parks. It's cheaper, the facilities are far nicer, and the people are much more friendly. golf carts are all over the place and bike are required to have lights after sunset. Look elsewhere, you'll be much happier you did. We camped at Greenwood Acres Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
