Park is an older park with great ambience. The pool looks to be clean but we didn't use it. All gravel roads with a nice hiking trail at the rear of the park. We walked each day, exploring the loop. Our site was fairly level but some are not near level, so be prepared with wood or blocks. The water pressure was terribly inconsistent. At one point I told my wife it was the best we had experienced, but later that night it was down to a trickle. The services on some sites are poorly laid out requiring long extensions to sewer, water, and/or electric depending how you want to be positioned on the site. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Traverse City is about a 35 minute drive and is a must see if you are in Northern Michigan.

Pros: As stated in earlier reviews, this is an older park. The grounds are quite nice with good walking trails. Very dog friendly! The WiFi was the best I've seen. In our site the water pressure was acceptable and the sewer port was accessable. Cons: The site we were given was so out of level we felt like cliff dwellers. The electric service was terrible. Voltage down to 103 VAC at times. When we asked for a different site, we were told that none were available. This however turned out not to be the case. They did send their electrician who concluded that nothing could be done about the low voltage. We feared for the health of our air conditioning all night. We will not return.

Good Sam Rate, like other posts the sites are narrow and hard to get into with large rigs, but still there were many 5th wheels in the parks. I walked the road prior to entering to make sure I could get in under all the trees. Good WIFI, friendly staff, no credit cards taken, cash or check. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Although the campground owners were quite nice we would not select this campground again for several reasons. First, the sites are quite unlevel & the roads are quite narrow. Second, because we used our Good Sam to get a 10 % discount we were not allowed to use our credit card, but had to pay by check. And third, their advertisements all state that there is cable TV, but that is only on their full hookup sites. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park but you'll need leveling blocks here. The playgrounds needs updating...the swimming pool is average and most of the sites are small with alot of fireplace ashes mixed in with the dirt. would I stay here again?...probably not We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our first fall visit and we loved this park. The fall colors were amazing in the park and on the nature trails. Nice clean well maintained park with wooded campsites. Has cable TV and Wi-Fi that works great! We enjoyed the area golf courses and the casino was nice too. We'll return for another stay. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It has been about 8 years since we have been here. We had a FHU pull-thru with 60 channel cable TV and Wi-Fi at PPA rate for our 2 day, mid-week stay. Like many PPA parks they wouldn't guarantee a FHU until arrival. The park has only about a dozen FHU and not many sites which will accommodate large rigs. They need to do a better job of levelling their pull-through sites. It did not look like many sites are satellite friendly bcause of all the trees. The pool is nice.

Quiet shaded friendly park with with a heated pool, many acres of biking and hiking trails plus Wi-Fi and Cable TV. Close to many recreational venues and attractions. The owners were very helpful in providing area information and maps. A nice clean campground for a vacation close to the Grand Traverse area.

Quiet park with strange layout. Restrooms are surface clean, could use a good deep cleaning. Nice walking trails behind and to the east of the park. Pricey laundry at $1.75 per load. PA rate for 2 of 3 nights. PA listing states checks accepted with ID. Owner would not take out of state checks. Credit cards were only accepted on the website when making reservations. Clean pool. Difficult to get a site with satellite reception due to so many trees. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Way over priced! When I told manager our site was not a pull through, I was told I was told, yes it is, and away they went. Pull through was so tight turning out, that when we left I had to back out, just like I had said. Site was seven inches out of level also. Laundry area was clean, but wife said it had no area to fold stuff. Only one small container for trash and it was always overflowing so bad, trash was piled on the ground. Cable TV and Wi Fi worked great. Would not stay again in this park. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I give it a 5 because they let someone come in at 1:30am to set up right next to us! Also give it a 5 because Kalkaska doesn't like out-of-towners! People are rude here. There is NOTHING to do in Kalkaska, might as well camp in Traverse City. Move on. The campground was alright, had very tight spots for getting in and out, and was not even close to level sites. I had to call and complain about the noise level after 11:00: quiet time 10:30. Had fairly clean bathrooms, the owners where nice but not caring at all. You could tell they where faking their so-called great attitude: in the end they just don't care. Has very short showers (like 4 foot tall). I would not camp here again or recommend to any of our friends. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park owners were very nice & friendly. Wi-Fi and cable worked well. Interior roads & sites were a dirt/sand gravel mix and bumpy. My site was more level than some of the others looked, but I could not get level and reach the sewer. They do have a dump station. Some road noise during the day but mostly quiet at night. Nice trails to walk on within the campground. The rate here reflects the CampClub discount. I would stay here again at that rate but not at their full rate. There is a RV Resort 10 miles closer to Traverse City with a rate slightly higher than this one that I would rate a 10. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Small store with wood and close to town. We camped at Kalkaska RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
