Unfortunately this is the only campground near to Lansing. We pulled into our site after a very tight turn (where a large boulder by a fence got stuck under a basement door - my bad). The site was barely level and situated as a buddy site with my neighbor less than 20 feet away. No way to open an awning for either of us. Most sites were like this. We will not be back. 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.

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.

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. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

We stayed here on an overnight and thought it perfectly sufficient. Laundry facilities are some of the best anywhere. Sites are gravel but not dusty (at least not when compared to New Mexico, etc.). Huge tree canopy over sites is nice in warmer weather. There are league softball games played on field in back of park so expect to hear associated shouting and ballgame banter till late into evenings. Lots of seasonal residents but overall a very nice overnight stop. We'd happily stay here again. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Pulled in to stay for the night, dusty road and NOT big rig friendly. We have a 37' 5th wheel, when I called they said it would not be a problem. well huge rocks at the corners of the dirt road and too many trees, we ended up scarping the back of our trailer, told them they should move the rocks and they just laughed. Needless to say will not recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Level but dusty sites, we had one of the 11 full hook-up pull throughs; most have shade. Many permenant campers; many run down. Easy in and out to local roads or interstates. Good laundry. Weekends get busy. There are two baseball fields in the rear of the campground that had games until 11 pm on weeknights. July 3rd, a few campers keep fireworks going continously from 8 pm until after 12 midnight: after the first hour it got pretty annoying. The pull through sites are close together and the parking arrangement puts your neighbor's door facing your's, with barely room to open both awnings. If camping with friends or family this arrangement is nice. If you like privacy and quiet; it's not so great. If you have a big rig and want to be close to Lansing, this is probably your best bet. The rate reflects weekly. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

We just camped here for an overnight, so we did not use the pool or laundry, but the store and office area were very clean and the store had a nice selection of items. WI-FI did not work at our site, nor did it work at the office. There is a nice pond and we rented a row boat for five dollars for a two hour period and caught some large mouth bass. Everything was reserved in the full hook up area, so we chose a site next to the lake with water and electric. I was never able to get completely level, but it was all right for one night. There are quite a few "seasonal" residents and a few unsightly campers right at the entrance. The office staff was pleasant. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice place to spend a weekend. Pro's: catch and release fishing pond, paddleboats, two nice baseball fields, quiet, clean bathrooms, close to shopping and restaurants. Con's: most of the full hook up sites are buddy sites that face each other which is not fun unless you are camping with those people. We would return if looking for a central location to meet the friends we were camping with, but probably not if it was just us. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice, recently remolded, It is in the city, so if passing through nice place to stop. The cottonwood trees can be very messy. Small quaint place to camp. We camped at Lansing Cottonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Had a seminar in the Lansing area and this was the closest campground $25 for W/E $29 for W/E/S. Overall it was fine. I'm not much into RV park type camping and like to be in a roomier site then most private parks provide. They do have some nice sites along their pond, which can be fished and paddleboats are available too. The bathrooms seemed to be clean whenever I used them. Things seemed quiet overall at night, but traffic noise could be heard from nearby road, left AC fan on one night to drown out the noise. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to use this CG again if I'm in the area for an extended time. Not to far from I-96, and would make a fine stopover for most travelers.
