Nice well maintained park. The park is very well situaited for seeing the sights of the Mackinaw area. A number of sites large enough for big rigs, and access to the sites is generally good. Sites are a bit tight (not a lot of space between the sites), but have room for slides and awnings. Owner and staff was courteous and helpful. The park has a short nature trail to a 1.5 mile walking/bike trail that will take you into the center of the Mackinaw City tourist area. Great way to see the city and not have to worry about finding a place to park. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice KOA. Great location for visiting Mackinaw City and the island. The camp sits close to an excellent paved bike trail that leads right to the ferry docks. Our water and electric site was shaded, level and quite spacious. The water pressure was good and the electric service was steady. The camp WiFi was a bit disappointing, however. As in many places we've stayed, the WiFi signal was strong, but the throughput was marginal at best. I believe many of these parks don't subscribe to providers capable of offering the bandwidth required for multi-party use. "Just sayin'." Be that as it may, we enjoyed our stay and will return if we should find ourselves in this area again. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Take a ferry ride out to Mackinaw Island. Well worth it! Dogs are welcome on the ferry for no additional charge. Bikes however, you gotta pay extra.

We chose this park because of the location and the access to the bike path for going into town. You walk or ride your bike through a short trail in the woods and you are on a lovely paved path into town. We rode our bike to the ferry twice to go over to Mackinac Island and rode all over town. It's also great for walking the dogs! The sites aren't all that level and things in the campground could be spruced up a bit. We did drive through all the other campgrounds in the area and were happy we chose to stay here. The location is great, the other campers were nice. We would stay here again. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Mackinac Island! Take your bike, it's the easiest way to get around and renting bikes there is expensive. Costs $9 per bike to take it on the ferry, but if you rent a bike on island, it's $25 for 4 hours! Eat at Audie's, great menu, excellent food. Fish and chips at Scallywags are also excellent. I tried fudge from 4 different places and liked Mackinaw Island Fudge Company the best. Not much shopping that is worth it in town, but there is so much to do outdoors you won't miss it.

We liked this park, and its access to the bike trail that ran into town. We're happy to report there were no bug problems during our stay the first week of August. We liked the layout of the bathrooms, which linked the men's and women's restrooms into a common area with locking rooms for the showers - there was privacy and the showers had good pressure and hooks/benches. Interior roads were gravel, as were the sites, which were fairly level. The 50-amp power was strong, but water pressure was around 30 PSI, too low for our motorhome and we had to boost it with our water pump. Site spacing was reasonable, and our pull-through site was long enough to easily accommodate our car. The Verizon access was strong, and we did not try the park's Wi-Fi, so we cannot report on that. There was some traffic noise during the day from the road that bordered the park, and even though there were a lot of folks driving around it was fairly quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

We had a relatively level spot with water, electricity and cable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They have a pool and game room for the kids. Most of the sites are shaded. They have firewood for sale. Though we do not regret staying here, we should clarify one thing. The campground advertises that they provide a shuttle to the Mackinac Island Ferry. In truth, the ferry has a shuttle system to all of the campgrounds and motels. The campground will provide you with a ferry schedule, then about a 1/2 hour before the ferry you go to the office and they call the shuttle for you. The KOA also gives you a $5 discount coupon per ferry ticket. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice, relatively level sites in trees which are not in the way of getting in and out. Camp workers police sites as people check out. Workers in store are friendly and helpful. Wifi worked very well the whole week we were there. Easy access to all tourist attractions. Enjoyed stay and would stay here again. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice park with large, treed sites and a kid friendly environment. This is a good camp to use when visiting Mackinac Island. The nature trail hooks up with the city bike path which is a very nice paved path, which goes for many miles. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a tough place to rate. I liked it because it was close to Mackinaw City, it was super quiet, we had a nice shaded lot, water/electric/cable/Wi-Fi all worked, bathroom and showers were clean and the pool was okay. I had no problem with the staff and the lady at the front desk was very helpful. Saying that, this place needs TLC and could really be better. The playground is horrible - my kids are older and don't need it, but if I had younger kids, I would be very disappointed. Pool was nice, but it could have been cleaner. The public use grounds were a mess and things were falling apart. I would come here again because the things I need are in place and work for me. This place has a lot of potential.

We stayed at this KOA during a trip to Mackinac Island, and the location is great. This KOA is a short drive to all the area attractions, and even offers a free shuttle to the Mackinac Island ferry. The bathrooms, showers and pool were clean, and they had a good camp store with some local souvenirs. We had a full hookup site which was relatively level, my only complaint is the firepits built into the ground very close to neighboring campsites. Another complaint, and it's minor, was the very expensive laundry facilities. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

We liked everything about this campground except the Wi-Fi was poor at best. We stayed here to walk the bridge and was happy to find out they had set up a shuttle to take us to the start and pickup after the walk for the same $6 fee they charged to wait in line for a school bus. Staff was super at this park. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Staff is friendly. Hookups are strange, depending on the site the sewer is extremely close, while the power is very far away. In fact we had a 30 amp site and needed to put two cords together to reach power. The campground does not supply the shuttle to the ferry, they call the ferry and they send their shuttle out to pick you up. The site had enough room for slide outs grass is really worn away from over use. Location is good to all tourist areas. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great campground. Although the sites were grassy we had no problem leveling the motorhome. We would stay here again if we are in the area. Nice pool and helpful, friendly staff. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Clean bathrooms and showers. Great laundry facilities. Swimming pool water was warm but refreshing and greatly appreciated. The kids enjoyed the playground. Our site easily accommodated our slide-out, fire-pit and picnic table. We didn't feel crowded at all. Our camp site was on the perimeter so we did not have cable TV access.

Very tourist friendly. Free shuttle to the island ferries. They also recommend a dog kennel 1/4 mile from them for day boarding. We used that and it was great. Laundry was very clean, but as others have stated probably a little pricey. Sites were level with plenty of room between sites. Wi-Fi was strong. Owners and other workers were very friendly and helpful. Rate reflects KOA discount We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.
