We recently bought our new-to-us 37' RV and wanted to try it out for a few nights. We live in the area and chose Wild Cherry Resort because of its lovely landscaping and peaceful atmosphere. Office staff were so pleasant, put us in a prime spot on the end of a row by the pond. Pond was clean (they have a little cleaning robot in it that keeps it from getting scummy) with cattails and wild birds. At night the frogs sang us to sleep. Park is extremely quiet, which we appreciate, and staff is working all day, every day to keep it lovely. We were in a 50 amp full hookup space, everything worked perfectly. Trash is picked up at daily at your site. Parking site was gravel with a concrete patio and picnic table. Very little leveling needed.

We brought our two dogs, one of whom is 80# and over the stated weight limit. The park is flexible on that restriction, just ask. Lots of areas to walk your dog, including orchards and woods. They just ask that you not let your dog do their business on the beautifully maintained lawns around the sites, and I can understand that.

The only reason that I give this park 9 stars instead of ten is that there are no bathrooms or laundry. For a self-contained rig, this is not a problem, but for the tent and yurt campers (they have a yurt here!) it might be less than desirable. The park has several driving range/putting greens but no playground. Kids were safely riding their bikes on the paved roads within the resort, though. Personally, we greatly enjoyed the quiet. Several wineries right next door, with quaint towns, beaches and more wineries within easy driving distance. Yes, the park is expensive, but rates are representative of the area. We would stay here again, and recommend it to others. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

45 North winery is right down the road, and has a very nice tasting room. Aurora Cellars is also very close, and other cideries/wineries are minutes away. Small town of Lake Leelanau nearby with cafes and necessities, as well as a wonderful bakery. Suttons Bay has even more great spots to eat and shop. Park is centrally located to get to all areas of beautiful Leelanau County.

Excellent big rig friendly park, easy in and out, no tree problems or tight turns. Paved interior roads, gravel pad, concrete patio. Extremely quiet park. No pool, restrooms, showers or laundry but not a problem if in a self contained rig. Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Website mentions pet restriction of 40 lbs, but this was not an issue as many larger dogs were welcomed. Not a lot for kids to do if traveling with younger folks. Park is within 2 miles of Sutton's Bay, about 20 miles from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Planned on staying four days but extended for an additional four. Very nice park. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.

Park sites are large. Really not pet friendly even though they claim to be. Owner makes you take your dog to a specified area to do it's business. He had a fit, ours urinated on the grass in the campsite. Nothing here for kids to do, it was pretty boring for them. Expensive for what he offers, which is nothing but real bad WiFi. We really liked the surrounding area, but would find another campground the next time. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have camped here over the last 5 years, a few as seasonal. I'm not surprised seeing the latest negative reviews. We reserved a specific site with the owner early in the winter of 2012 for a agreed upon seasonal site. When we arrived for our summer stay we found our site was already taken by a motorhome. Making a long story short, we couldn't have the site we gave him a $1600.00 deposit on many months earlier, and he demanded we take a site that he knew we didn't want. As some others mentioned here, he was extremely rude and insulting. I asked for my deposit back (which he gave back) and drove 5 hours back home. Our summer plans were ruined. He keeps saying he's planning on improvements, he never makes any. No pool, no store, no bathrooms, Wi-Fi spotty, no cable TV, only a few channels can be received from Winegard antenna. The price he charges is way too high for the service he provides. The pond area is overgrown with scum and weeds, lots of mosquitoes and droppings from the many ducks and geese that run around it. He is trying to be like a couple of the higher class RV parks in the Traverse city area. He falls way short. We refuse to return to this campground, unless someone else buys him out. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped there last fall in our 21 ft Jayco fifth wheel. This year we were told that we were not welcome because our 5th wheel is to small. They now require at least a 27 ft camper, or a tent? Note: Last year, our camp site's power pole did not work and we had to borrow a long cord and pull power from a nearby site. Note 2: There are not bathrooms or shower house, and there wasn't enough water pressure on our site, to allow taking a good shower. Note 3: I picked up a virus on my computer, while using their unsecured wireless access! We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Not pet friendly. Made us leave because our dog pottied on site. We cleaned too. Owner does not allow anything to sit on grass/weeds. Owner has a short temper. Very mean and rude to us. We have camped in 10 different states and have never felt so disrespected. I have never been kicked out of an establishment. I left in tears. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.

"Resort" is a joke! This place doesn't have a pool, bathhouses, laundry, cable TV, playground, camp store or any other normal RV park amenity. The owners appear to be frustrated golfers - all focus is on building and/or maintaining several golf greens around the algae choked pond. The physical sites are beautiful but the price is ridiculous for what is provided. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites have nice concrete pads and a small patio, a newspaper is delivered each morning and trash collection is done at your site, but the "resort" lacks restrooms, showers, laundry, and a pool. It is very quiet, but lacks the amenities of a first class RV resort charging $59. Be careful when reserving a site if you want to have a campfire in the evening, many sites do not have fire circles. Wild Cherry is located in a centrally located area making it easy to visit various wineries, Suttons Bay, Leland and the rest of the beautiful Leelanau peninsula. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Spacious, scenic park. But overpriced, should be $10/night less since it needs more amenities. Has no pool, no cable TV, and no restrooms or showers yet. Extremely quiet and lots of places to walk your pets. Liked the large sites. Might stay again if it is "right-priced." We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a really great campground. There is much to do in the area and the CG is well located to take advantage of all there is to see and do. Leland, Traverse City, Scott's Harbor are all close by and if you can't find something to do, you need professional help! There are more great restaurants in the area than anywhere else we go. The management is professional. It would be a 10 if there were more amenities, but who needs them when there is so much to do in the area. Didn't play them,m but there are two golf holes that appear to be really fun. We will stay here again. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here a week so the rate depicts that, plus, although it was not advertised, we got the Good Sam discount. (July is not included, as that is a busy cherry festival time.) This is a very quiet, serene, hilly setting, with very large pull-in sites around a small lake. Trees are on the perimeter of the property. No problem with satellite, but we did have problems with their Wi-Fi and our Verizon air card and phone. Very low signal so computer and phone worked intermittently. They are working on a couple short golf holes. There were some information brochures in the office but no real store to purchase items. I was given information about some of the local restaurants and wineries. No laundry available on site but nice laundromat in Suttons Bay. The newspaper was delivered daily, even the Sunday paper, which was a nice touch. There is plenty to do in the area to keep you busy or you can just relax and watch the ducks in the lake. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.

The setting surrounding this park is beautiful. However, the prices are, in our opinion, too high. We chose a "grassy site" because we felt the $39 price was a little more reasonable. There are ants all over the grass, and even though we were told the electric (50amp) had just been checked, it was not turned on. We went to the office at 4:00 on a Sat. afternoon and found it closed. Someone did come out of a motor home to help and sent someone to turn the electric on. We feel we should not have had to chase this since we had prepaid reservations for the site, and they we expecting us. The electric should have been checked and the ants should have been sprayed before we arrived. The sites are reasonably level. There is no cable, and there are no bathhouse facilities. There is no pool. More reasons we feel the park is over priced. WI-FI seems to work well. , We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a spectacular campground in a very serene setting with lots of elbow room and the owner is fantastic. The grounds are impeccable and there is so much to do and see in the area. I would have to agree that at the moment it is a bit overpriced because there are no facilities, but the grounds and setting more than make up for it.

We rented a spot at Wild Cherry for the entire summer in 2009. It's a great place. No hassles at all, quiet, clean, beautiful. Trash pickup and news paper delivery every day. Easy to use Wi-Fi. Walks through the Cherry Orchards, and trips to the numerous wineries make it a great place. Small towns with great restaurants, and many things to do. Owners are laid back, and easy to work with. No problems, no worries. We're not newbies, we've been camping for many, many years. We highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away to the most beautiful part of the state. The amount we showed in the nightly rent is a little off since we rented for the entire summer, best to get the price directly from the park. Try out the park, you won't regret it.

We stayed here a week. The park is very nice. There are spacious sites, good wi-fi, but not really much to do for the price. There is no pool as advertised, no golf holes as advertised, one bathroom for men & women in the office. There was hardly anything in the store. We felt it was very overpriced! We won't be back. We camped at Wild Cherry Resort in a Motorhome.
