We didn't have a reservation and stopped in for 1 night. We arrived at 13:00 and as checkout isn't until 14:00 didn't have many choices of site. Only site for a 41' 5th wheel with at least 30 amps was a deluxe pull-through. Bit pricey for only 1 night. It's a typical KOA with lots of amenities for kids. Roads are a mixture of paved and gravel and in some locations are challenging for 60' + rigs. Our site access was down a narrow gravel road and had a tree on either side at the front of the site. With less than 2' clearance to the trees at the front we had to position the coach with the front slides behind the trees. The site was level, services well located and it came with a patio, lawn furniture and BBQ. No satellite reception. Unfortunately we spent the night that Detroit had 6" of rain, so couldn't use the patio. Getting out of the site was tight as I had to completely clear the trees before turning - only had 3' of clearance. The turn at the building towards the exit was also a challenge because of the cars parked across the street. With the sun in the mirrors had to ask the wife to get out and watch the building on the inside. The dog run was a joke - yes it was fenced. but it might have been 10' x 10'. Our departure collected a number of spectators wondering how I was going to get the rig out of the trees. Would we return? Probably not. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This park is designed for everyone. Cabins, pull-throughs, back-ins etc. Our site was level and had hookups placed in the proper places. Park was clean and had help everywhere doing work. Our RV is 40' long. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

We used this park as a one night stopover on our way home from a short trip. Easy access from the interstate, check in went smoothly, getting to our pull-through site was a breeze. We had stayed here several years ago, but that was in the fall and the place was almost empty. What a difference to the summer. I have never seen an RV park that was so packed. People (mostly children) were everywhere. Seemingly lots to see and do for everybody and everyone was enjoying themselves. We don't travel with children anymore but we do enjoy watching children having a good time. If you don't mind crowds this is the place for families. I was impressed by how the place was managed, staff were very friendly and helpful, and they all seemed to know what they were doing. We would stay here again if passing through the area.

This is our second trip to this campground. We reserved one of the premium pull through spots with concrete pad and patio. We had an issue with water pressure – but the CG reported subsequently that it was probably a problem with the regulator at our site. Most sites have trees for shade. This campground is incredibly family friendly with lots of amenities including go-carts, batting cages, water park, etc. I highly recommend this park as a destination not just a stop-over.

If you have children, this is the perfect campground for you. The activities at the Sawmill City Amusement park will keep your kids busy and exhausted by the end of the day. On Weekends, the place is packed, so reservations well ahead are a must. You really need to keep to the 5 MPH speed limit as there are a multitude of kids speeding along on bicycles and they spring up from every which way, and turn right in front of you. If anyone in the family has breathing problems, care should be taken as it seems on weekends, almost every site has a campfire going and if there is no substantial breeze, the smoke hangs in the air. During the week, this was not an issue. From a more mundane perspective, the sites are nice and wide and fairly level. the water pressure can be an issue (32 psi on the weekend, 40 during the week when the park was 80% empty). We were passing through Port Huron on our way to Ontario and unfortunately our schedule brought us here on a weekend, so we did not get the best site for our rig. The site was not long enough to park our 41’ rig plus tow vehicle. When we made reservation, they assured us that site would be long enough to park both. The Wi-Fi Internet is free and a good strong signal, but very slow (37 kbps) and unreliable. The campground is close to I-69 for easy on/off. We plan on staying here again on our southbound trip arriving on a weekday and leaving before the weekend. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The park was nearly empty, allowing us to select the site we wanted. We chose a pull-through with a paved pad which was perfectly level. The site had grassy areas to the right and left and a clean, painted picnic table. We used the heated bath house and laundry. Both were clean. We especially enjoyed the two fenced dog play areas which had agility equipment for tiny little dogs and waste bags/trash cans. It was pleasant to be able to let the dogs off lead in a fenced yard. While we were packing up in the morning a young man came by in a golf cart and took away our trash. The park has 'super sites' which have brick patios, screened gazebos, and BBQ grills. Looks like it would be a very busy place during the summer season. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We camped here during the off season in our camper van at a tent site. We were the only campers in a six-sided, pie shaped gazebo-structure, where the kitchen space and table were roofed. This was most welcome, as scattered showers were occurring. The campground was practically empty, and we could see no other campers from our vantage point. For just the two of us, this was a great overnight spot, and the price was right. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Truck Camper.Undo

We camp at this KOA a great deal during the summer. It is close to home and the kids love it here. They make improvements to the campground every year. Some of the positive things are the campground is very clean, generaly quiet, (exception; train tracks just south of the campground), nicely wooded, close to town/grocery store. Some things that need improvements are the pool which is way too small for the campground size, the extra $$ that it cost to join all the extra events or activities they have. Sawmill City adjoined with KOA is very pricey for what you get. Most of the help during the busy months is teenagers who just drive around on the golf carts and chase each other. Rarely do you ever see an adult. Overall it is a great campground, but a bit overpriced for what you get. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We came here after hearing the reviews from our friends. Apparently our friends haven't been to Yogi Bear in Fremont, Indiana. I'll start off by saying that this campground is very cool. Lots to do for the kids. Enough to allow them to be gone all day without seeing them except for eating. The quiet time here does get quiet at around 10 or 11pm. The negatives. With all the stuff to do here comes a pretty steep price. Almost everything costs extra and its NOT cheap. Good luck telling your little ones they cant do some things if you have a budget. If your wealthy or don't mind spending money to put smiles on your kids faces, this is your place. If your on a budget or don't see spending large amounts of money for the same smiles, you might want to keep looking or expect to have your kids frown a little bit. Next, which seems to be a popular complaint here is the traffic. I don't mind the walkers or the bicycles as much as I do the golf carts zipping around going way faster than the posted 5 mph. Matter of fact, today a young man got hauled away from here in an ambulance from falling out of a golf cart. And do you think they may enforce the speed limit? NOPE! I watched 3 KOA golf carts and its KOA operators racing kids in their rented pedal scooters. Going well over the 5 mph speed limit. Pools close at 8pm when the areas of entertainment that require money stays open 2 to 3 hours later. Overall, I am not too tickled with this campground. I have gotten the first impression that lining the owners pockets with tons of money rather than good value with an equally fair bottom line is more important to them. That is the reason why we most likely not be back. That and the fact that the employees race golf carts around and allow others to speed through the park endangering kids like mine. I gave it a rating of 3 because its a very nice park but with some areas that can be easily corrected. But I wont be holding my breath. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We've been camping here for a month or 2 each year, 5 years now, and I have to say that we noticed the decline as well. They keep building more paved sites, adding more cabins and super sites and generally packing more people in here. But the bathrooms are no longer spotless like when we first started camping here, the showers are dirty, and the facility continues to get more run down. The campground is run by a few dozen well-meaning but clueless teenagers. The campers are pretty much allowed to run wild and do whatever they want, and like others have said, they are a rude bunch, walking through your camp site, letting their dogs go to the bathroom on others' campsites, and just a lot of loud weird behavior at night. Many unsupervised kids, a lot too small to be running around alone. I'm sure that there is an adult or 2 working here, but I haven't seen one and I've been here for a week. There are 2 pools, a "baby" pool, and a deeper pool, but people bring their babies in the deeper pool, which means if you are looking for a swim in a clean pool, forget it. There are babies and little kids with and without swim diapers in both pools all day long, with no supervision. The pool area is filthy with food and garbage, and the pool itself is the dirtiest I have ever seen. Like gross-out dirty with cloudy water and scary debris everywhere. And also the most overcrowded I have ever seen. They need more capacity for a park this size. The pools are just too small for the number of people in them. Not enough chairs at the pool, and the pool bathrooms are foul beyond belief. Plus bad behavior at the pool with boom boxes, squirt cannons, etc, and like I said NO supervision. Food everywhere in the pool area. And some of the campers obviously using the pool as a bath: not showering before at the poolside showers (one has been broken for a while.) Kids on golf carts of every age everywhere. Kids on rented bikes everywhere. Somebody is going to get hurt here eventually. The facility is aging, and there are just not enough people paying attention and cleaning, etc. We come back because my kids LOVE this place, and it's close to home and convenient. But it is starting to get on my nerves and gross me out more than a bit. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.Undo

As some of the other reviewers, I've stayed here before and was not as pleased this time. They have expanded to the point that there are simply too many people there for the amount of space. I stepped outside around 9:30 PM and it sounded like a city street. The upkeep has suffered somewhat, even if just because of the amount of business they do. Also, the surrounding area is somewhat depressed. It was OK for the one night we stayed. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

The park is very clean and very nice as are the bathrooms. The pool however, is a disaster. It was light green, with an oil slick on the surface and when my husband came up out of the water, he had a mass of mixed hair on his cheek. Due to the high cost of children's activities and the dirty pool, we will probably not camp there other than for Halloween weekend. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This used to be our favorite weekend park as it's close to home and easy to get to, but we were somewhat disappointed with our most recent stay. They still have all the same great park amenities, but it feels like they've let the place go somewhat. The grass used to be immaculate and so well-kept, but currently it is just overrun with weeds, dandelions, etc. and looked just horrible. Security, as far as quiet hours and rules, is much more lax compared to previous stays. Also, you are forced to purchase their wood, which I understand with the ash borer disease, but the wood is overpriced and poor quality. It was wet and hard to burn. Four bundles cost $20 just to have a campfire for a few hours, and we constantly had to fight with it to keep it going. At this point, not sure if we will return. A real disappointment!

We stay here a lot. The lots are average size and there are a lot of options. They have three or four super sites for the big rigs that are very nice. There are always lots of planned activities and the pools are well kept. Most of the entertainment is at the front of the park so walking or biking is dangerous and hectic. Halloween weekends are the best here. The fellow campers has changed over the last couple years and I would recommend locking your cars and other things if you leave them.

Huge park with a lot of Kabins and kid stuff. You can tell that they very much cater to families. We arrived opening day of the season and there were only a handful of RV's for the weekend. Washers and dryers are a bit outdated but they served their purpose. Because of the lack of campers, the park was very peaceful and quiet. I have heard that it is quite busy in the summertime. We were visiting friends in Detroit and this was the most convenient to driving back and forth: interstate the whole way. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Motorhome.Undo
