We spent 1 week in a 40' motor home. The nightly rate reflects weekly discount. All sites have 30-50 amp electric and a few have water hook-ups. The dump station is easily accessed by big rigs. The bathrooms & showers are a new feature since our previous stays. Each shower is a complete bathroom, with stool & lavatory, & 2 of them are handicapped accessible. The bathrooms are not cleaned regularly & the concrete floors would be greatly improved by sealing and/or painting so they could be kept free of sand. There are no benches in the shower areas. There is an on-site host and the campground is quiet & safe. This is not a resort. It is a fairgrounds with good facilities for those who wish to enjoy the Grand Traverse Bay area. This campground is closed to outsiders during fair week, so check the website for dates. - Biker2

A bargain for an overnight stay. Almost wished we could stay a couple more days. Just out of town, electric and water on the outer sites. A couple of shade trees. A little dusty but sites are level with lots of room. Restrooms are not fancy but decent. No other amenities except it's a drive down the street to every convenient store imaginable. Downtown is quaint with lots of tourist traps and restaurants. - Teribee

This is a good inexpensive place to stay in the Traverse City area. Full hookups. Easy in and out. Cheap. The place was nearly empty. Twenty minutes to Traverse City, 45 to Sleeping Bear. A bargain. - BigDawg1

I will preface this review by saying we are a family of 4 in our mid 30's with 2 boys aged 9 & 6. Overall our stay was exceptional and we would stay here again. The ultimate judge, my children, did not want to leave. We stayed 4 nights in a tent in early August. Our site was sandy and spacious with nice tree coverage to black the view of our neighbors. Power worked well, but their was an odd sounding rooster the would sound off every morning around 7am. Public Spaces: The grounds of this KOA are very well maintained. The public bathrooms /showers were always clean and well stocked. Inside you the camp store you will find all your basic needs including ice cream (packaged), coffee, and essentials. There was a small but well maintained fenced dog run for those with 4 legged family members. The road around the campground were a mix of paved and gravel. Lighting was mediocre, but that also meant it was not intrusive at night. My only complaint was there is only one bathroom. If you have kids and you think you will need to walk to the bathhouse at night make sure your not at the end of a loop like us. It was a long walk. If you need the bathroom facilities, request a site towards the front. Kids Spaces: Our kids loved the bounce pillow, sadly one was flat which meant the teenagers and younger kids were playing together. Overall this was not an issue, but if you had smaller kids it may be a concern. The playground is wooden and a bit dated, but functional. The pool is simple, but offers a nice shaded area for parents to sit, which I appreciated. The campground activities for the kids every day including a train ride which was a hit with my boys. - Mens Family Adventures

Stayed here for 3 nights while travelling through. Very friendly, efficient and professional staff, clean, level site with full hookups. Park is sparsely populated as it is near off-season but I can see that when full, there is plenty of room. Very nice. We'd stay here again without a moments hesitation. - TPDBOB8687

Just an ok campground. At least 15 miles south of Traverse City in Buckley. Pull through sites are gravel and grass with a nice picnic table and fire pit. Depending on the size of your neighbor's rig, you'll feel either closed in or have plenty of room in the grass. The sites with a patio looked a little more spacious. The CG does have really nice cabins with a deck and a fire pit. Would be perfect for friends or family that don't have RVs. Lots of open area for kids with volleyball, jumpers, disc golf and pool. Nothing spectacular but a nice stop over. WES fine. Wifi was ok not real speedy. Easy to maneuver in 45' motorhome. We were able to get satellite with a little maneuvering in the site. Gravel and paved roads. - Team Asphalt

It is a fairly small RV park, but well maintained and very helpful and friendly staff. Our site had a city water and sewer hook up as well as electrical hookups. Oak Grove is a privately owned campground that is affiliated with Chippawa Landing Campground. Chippawa Landing is right on the Manistee River and offers canoe rentals. They have a bus that will pick you up from Oak Grove to take you to the drop off spot of your choice to canoe or tube down the river. A driver will drive you back to the Oak Grove Campground when you make it to Chippawa Landing. Chippawa Landing also offers campsites, but it is much more rustic and difficult to maneuver for a large RV or fifth wheel. - Monroe77

I have been going to this campground for over 30 years and year after year I see it going down hill. The beach is eroding away and poorly maintained. Lake grass weed is taking over and not much sand left in the water. Very mucky bottom. Still has decent fishing. Outhouse is usually out of tp. I have called a few times to report and they do come out pretty quickly to replace. But so disappointing that the campground I grew up going to is not taken care of like it use to be. The campsites are overgrown and not attended to like they should be. The roads throughout the campground are washed out and getting to have a 4x4 to go through. Some camp areas you do need a 4x4 just to get into. I'm sure if this campground got some attention more people would camp there. Picnic tables need to be replaced. - Tonyagosta

We asked for shade and there were plenty of big trees on a three-tiered site with views of Silver Lake. There are many restroom/shower buildings throughout the park. - bookclubgeek

Stay here, you won't be sorry. This is the most beautiful park I've ever seen. I consider it to be reasonably priced for what you get. It's close to Traverse City, has a beach front, a boat dock, a bunch of playgrounds for the kids, and is overall just a beautiful place. Each spot has it's own character and charm. There are interior spots that are more shaded where the permanents are, and the other spots are located in mostly sun lots. But even those are quite nice. The island loop is beautiful just to walk around. Bath houses were very clean and well taken care of. Also, it's an Airstream park, so there are a ton of Airstreams. If you like seeing them, you'll see every make and model here. It was probably 60% full of Airstreams when we stayed. Seriously though, check this place out. You won't regret it. - hinsonco

Well maintained park. The roads are asphalt and the sites have a thick layer of gravel so it's not dusty. It poured while we were there and the water drained off the sites. If there had been a site on the lake available we would have spent the extra money to get one, they are awesome. We stayed in the purple section which was fine and has partial shade. There is a playground area in just about every loop. There are trash cans conveniently located throughout the park which are emptied daily, but no recycling. Plenty of grass for dog walking and many poop bag dispensers. There are young and old trees throughout the park, some areas much more wooded than others but that is explained on their website. Trees are well trimmed to keep away from rigs. My only complaint is that the wifi didn't work at all for us at any time - including during the week when there weren't many people there. Other RV parks are able to provide usable wifi so I know it can be done. I was able to use my Verizon hotspot. We didn't use the restroom but I looked in and they were clean. We don't do campfires but most people here do. Fire rings are at the back of the sites and far enough away from your neighbors fire. Hookups all worked well and where they should be. We would stay again if in the area. - thekites

Rate was for off season, with Passport America discount for 5 of our 7 nite stay. I do not understand the relatively low average rating for this park. It is well run, workers everywhere keeping the park maintained. Rates quite a bit higher in summer months. This park has a lot for kids of all ages. Mountain bike trails for varying skill levels, playgrounds, pool, large jumping pads, etc. Many planned activities. Many sites are definitely big rig friendly. Heavily treed park but limbs are trimmed above 15' and ample room to make turns on the roadways (ensure you request big rig friendly). Nice looking cabins and yurts are also available for rent. Reasonably close to town. I would return, especially using the Passport America rate. - Selectively Unemployed

Located about 5 miles from Traverse City, this quiet¬ well laid out campground was very nice. Blacktop roads, gravel sites, all pull through and our site (#108) had a cement patio. Geared for families with lots of kid activities. Our site had water, electric and sewer. Cable is available on some sites if needed. We had no cell service with T-mobile, free camp wi-fi very slow and unusable. We were here mid-week so were able to use Passport America discount both nights. At full price, the cost is more than we typically spend. - MangoandJune

We have been traveling since mid June, from Fl to BC Canada, the U P of Minn, Wisconsin and Michigan. This is by far the worst park we have stayed in (especially considering price).
Upon setting up, I couldn't find the cable connection. The front office assured me there was one and they would send someone out. That was 3 days ago. I hooked up to the site next to me. Sites are not level, very dusty with a lot of litter around.
Campground is layed out like a jig-saw puzzle with mixture of RV's, cabins, yurts, tents, etc. Showers are pay, no hot water, very poor pressure. Save your money and stay elsewhere. - Jack stawicki

The campground is in the East Bay side of town. If you want to have an urban camping experience, this campground is for you. You hear a lot of road noise, planes flying above and a train. The sites offer very little privacy. The camp host was very helpful at the fill/dump station; there was not a huge lineup, though the campground was full. - Tracer230

We stayed for five nights in a hybrid travel trailer. We were on site 105, which is against the park fence. The sites on this side were long and very narrow, so you are right up against your neighbor. Tents in the site next to us were literally touching our picnic table. We loved all the tall pines in the park which provided lots of shade, however, it makes for difficulty situating your travel trailer so that you can open your slides and awning. We were lucky and were able to do get both slides and the awning out, but can imagine there could be difficulty in other sites. The shared power box was confusing as well and you may need a longer than normal power cord to be able to reach depending on the site you get. We were camping the first week the park opened, so only the west loop was open and the bath house for this loop was not very nice. It was definitely older and my sister-in-law tried to shower in one of the narrow, dark shower stalls and couldn't get any warm water. A couple of days later, the bath house in the middle loop opened and it was a nice, new facility with great individual showers that were clean and new and had plenty of hot water. We found out later there was a problem with the hot water in our bath house, which explained the cold shower! We arrived on a Friday afternoon and Friday and Saturday night, the loop was pretty full, but after that, we pretty much had the place to ourselves as we checked out on a Wednesday. We didn't have any problems dumping on the day we checked out, but there are only two dumping spots both together, so one RV must go around and come in from the opposite side. I'm sure this creates a big problem on busy weekends. Additionally, there was only one hose at the dump station, so the other RV that pulled up while we were dumping had to wait his turn to hook up his backflush. We did hear some road noise from 72, but it wasn't too bad. We had great AT&T 4G service during our stay. We would stay here again! - LZee11

This state park has more space than most when looking at width of sites. The length / depth is a bit short. The roads are very narrow and larger units have a hard time.
They had one new shower house / bathroom building, which was nice. The older buildings are run down.
They have nice fire rings. - daa10496

Weather was beautiful, perfect northern Michigan summer days and nights. Park was about 2/3rds full when we arrived on a Monday and very close to full when we left on Thursday. Our site was on the west side of the north loop so we could walk to Interlochen Music Camp to listen to the Beach Boys who were in concert Tuesday night. We had two sites and many other sites were groups also. With all the activity the park was clean including the bathrooms and showers. Camp host area had a library and had outdoor equipment that you could use by just signing your name. Beautiful inland lakes for swimming, boating, and kayaking. This State park is only 20 minutes away from our house but a favorite for out of town family and friends so we camp here a couple times a year. You always feel welcomed when you stay at Interlochen State Park. - M Warner

Nice park with lots of shade. Have to watch carefully on some turns with trees. - N8MD

We booked this campground online six months in advance so our nightly rate includes the booking fee. Our site was grass/dirt, fairly level with trees. Some sites are tricky to get into due to trees, some of the roads have tight turns. This isn't a great big rig campground, although there are a few long pull-throughs. Most sites have electric and water, no sewer but there is a nice dump station. Nice fire pits and wood is available. There is a softball field, volleyball, boating and swimming beach. A nice camp store with snack bar is available. The power went out in our section for a few hours but was fixed eventually. No WiFi or TV was available. Quiet campground at night, would stay here again. - mohocamper

This park is hard to rate as it is still under development as a true RV resort. A community center and pool are under construction. This is an Owner type park, but many sites are available for rent. The park currently has 22 sites, all sites fully paved (concrete) including patios. Grounds are very nicely landscaped and maintained, and all interior roads are also fully paved. There is a railroad track to the west of the park, but we only heard two trains during our 3 day stay and both were during the daytime so not an issue. Park accepts cash or check only. The park does include wi-fi. Though cable TV is not yet available there are many stations available off the air. Good Verizon and AT&T cell service are also available. This is by far the best RV park in the area outside of Traverse City, though it is at least 30 miles away. Kalkaska is only about 8 miles straight north with good grocery and fuel stops. This was our first visit to this park, but it will certainly be our park of choice on future visits to this area. - Johnson's

Bad. Had trash out by 10:00 am, guy knocked on door at 11:00 am with trash bag in hand, threw on ground, yelling at me about leaving trash out after 10. And left the trash behind. Had to leave a week early due to medical issues. Would not refund any part of the $600. Our neighbor there told us the site was rented the next day for the week we left. I called the office 3 times a week for a month and no one called me back. Had considered purchase a site but not now. And on top of that the office staff were very rude and unaccommodating. Roads were clean and hook/unhook were easy. Site Internet never worked, cable was OK, satellite better. The sites on the main road to the park models very busy. Nice pool, but small and hot tub never got hot enough. Very close to great store for food and necessities. Site was quiet except for the two barking dogs left in neighbors coach of which management did not respond to. Lots of AA type entitled campers. Seems like turning park into many fifth wheels and park models, not building any more Class A sites. Access was easy from all points. - Hudson

Read previous reviews about the staff and other campers being unfriendly. This couldn't be further from the truth. The staff and other campers were extremely friendly, waving and always saying "hi". We had two Harleys, and were leery on how we would be received. No worries, everything was wonderful. The park is extremely clean and the buffet breakfast was delicious. Would definitely go again. - Mikep186

High end rv park. Well maintained and very quiet. Most sites are owner occupied. Restricted to motor coaches and large fifth wheels. Our site was somewhat tight to back end without getting on the grass. Close to Golf and casino. Friendly helpful staff. - 69 scotty
