This is a rural style park in an urban setting. Lots of trees, lots of grass and ponds.

It was rainy when we were there but not necessarily muddy or inconvenient.

Things seemed reasonably clean. This is a no frills park other than what appears to be a nice pool that was being prepared for the season.

Yes, we would stay again if visiting Lansing. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Truck Camper.

First there on 4th of July weekend. Many day visitors and visitors to campers, crowded and loud. Cars parked everywhere, uncontrolled. Bathrooms and showers filthy. Given an unusable site, but later moved. Lake is very small, many mosquitoes. During a later stop, we found the campground much quieter, but restrooms and showers still not very clean. Staff was pleasant, but overwhelmed at times. Campsites were very mixed, most not level, no pads. Many tent campers. Would not stay here again if there were an alternative. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an old park in a good location. From here you can quickly visit the Capitol and MSU. Lots of trees so you will not be able to use your satellite dish. We had rain and our site flooded. If you are a big rig be sure to have a reservation as there are not many sites into which you can fit. Location and 50 amp service are the highlights of this park. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Interior roads are very dusty. The pull-through sites are not level and are weeds and dirt. The main breaker in the pull-through area needs to be replaced. It popped numerous times in the 3 days were were there and it was very hot and humid. The maintenance people are aware they have a problem. The office staff and maintenance people were very helpful and nice. Good place to stop for a short stay. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Spaces we were put in not level, too small for 36' motorhome, way too close to neighbors. Not suitable for big rigs, dirt roads very poor, lot of potholes. Without a doubt we'd never stay here again. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend and the internet was down for the weekend we were there. I guess they ordered a part two weeks ago. The pinball machines weren't working and the campground will not refund your lost money. The roads are all gravel and dusty. It is on a busy road with road noise. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall the campground is your basic experience. Our site was a pull through and we were facing the entrance of the campers next to us. All the utilities worked well and we had some shade. The office staff was pleasant and helpful, especially with lending us a 50amp to 30amp conversion wire. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Not very clean park. Sites are not level. Some campsites are facing each other. Our camper faced one from a family that lived here permanently. They did not keep their site clean at all and sent their dog on a long leash outside to go potty (sure that they did not pick up the waste). The whole park seems like the owners don't care a lot. We stayed here this second time because of the location. We will not come back. Plus is the free WiFi and that there are lots of trees and green areas in the park.

We were lucky to snag a spot here over Memorial Day weekend, as we had been traveling without reservations and a dozen calls had turned up nothing. And I really have no complaints--it has served us well. However, sites are all over the map crazy in terms of levelness (we wished we had a Sportsmobile to back up the berm into our site), tree-dodging (to the sides and overhead), rigs and tents are just crammed into every available space. If you have children, this is a very family friendly place--pool, arcade, softball field, fishing, boats. If you have a dog, you might luck out and have some empty greenery around your site for play/exercise (no dedicated doggie exercise places). Not sure what the place is like during the week, but it's a-hoppin' on a holiday weekend--camp(bon)fires, fireworks, shrieking children, etc. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Unkempt basic park. Fine for a one night stop. Kid in office was just there to take your money. It was quiet at night. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Called to confirm availability of 50 amp site, when arrived only site available was a 30 amp. Site pedestal had a faulty ground which was reported to office. Office staff was a youth and very rude, informed us they were over booked and that their electric was overloaded. We took a refund & departed. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

I spent two nights here and found the park to be suitable for my needs. Plenty of shade, reasonably quiet and convenient to Lansing. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff was pleasant. Would consider staying here again on my next visit to the area. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We are staying here for a week to visit family. The office staff are friendly and the campground itself appears to be maintained. There's a lot of unharnessed potential here, but it needs work. The pull-through sites (the only sites that offer sewer hookups) are very tight and are "buddy" sites. You share patio space with your neighbor. Unless you know the person you're camping with, it's an unwelcome arrangement and one the facility really needs to give consideration too. Apart from the buddy site arrangement, it's very convenient and I'd stay here frequently. Unless you like to be packed in with people you don't know, you may wish to consider another campground.

A decent park for an over night stay. It has potential but needs some money put into it to improve the amenities. For example: there are no fire rings just a circle on the dirt where people build ground fires. Very few sewer connections are available in the park. Staff was friendly. I would stay here again, just not an extended stay. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

This place is a PIT. Big rig friendly my a--. Pull through: a dream in their minds. If you go to this place with anything over 34 feet you will be very disappointed. We were here to visit friends. Next time I will park 100 miles away and drive the toad. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.
