17 RV Parks near Manton, Michigan
Sep 2017 - $50.00
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

Very nice park. Not much grass because of mature tree's but no dust issues. Cement Patio was a nice feature. Neighbors were a bit noisy Saturday night but not too bad or worth complaining about. Cable TV provided with several channels but not HD, appeared to be more of a antenna type signal but obviously cable. Very nice club house. Were not advised that a $5 per day per person additional charge for more then two people on any site that stays. Asked for a late check-out and was advised yes at no charge till 3pm. Lot's of events planned in campground for kids while we were there. I would stay there again. - rab228

It is a great place to stay. The site we were on (131) was huge. I could have put 2 30' campers and two full size trucks on it. There was a bunch of activities for the whole family. Dodge ball was an awsome activity here. They actually have an enclosed sand arena with music, disco lights and even a sprinkler system that comes on while you play on hot days. There is even a park provided referee. The games are divided by age groups. It was very well organized and great fun. They have bike rentals and one and four man peddle carts. We rented the 4 man peddle cart and had a blast. The only negative is there seemed to be a lot of speeders through the park. By that i mean cars, trucks, golf carts, and bicycles. Also the wifi never worked but, that really wasn't a deal breaker. All staff I encountered was very polite and friendly. This campround i believe is a great campground and would definately come back. - Army_63b

What a beautiful resort on Silver Lake! Apparently it used to be an Airstream only park, so there are still many of them there and they are just so cool to look at! Lots of sites are actually owned by people so they are nicely landscaped and several have porches/patios. You see the pride of ownership everywhere, which is so refreshing. Our site even had a porch swing! We were on site 102 which is part of the "woods". Sites there were large, private, and had plenty of foliage between them. Cable, WIFI, and cell phone service (Verizon) were all excellent. Beach was beautiful. Only complaint is that there were lots of golf carts and they were all driving too fast. - Bonnie66

We stayed from Monday to Friday. Park was clean, quiet and beautiful. This was a mid September week and may not be as quiet in the summer. - thumbnail

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it very much. The campsites are spaced very nicely with some great for a group camp. The park is quiet and restful. - NINA W

We were looking for a campground close to Interlochen Center for the Arts so we could attend a concert and not have far to drive afterwards. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on week nights in July.
This is a very nice campground and the perfect location for attending an event at the ICA -1/4 mile walk on a pedestrian path. The staff were friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and well maintained. There was no wifi. Verizon and ATT cell coverage were ok. Sites are electric only. There's a water and dump station at a convenient location. In general, the sites closest to the water were smaller and less level. Those in the back row were a bit larger and more level. Most sites had good shade. - dsvt

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

The "value" totally depends on what site you get. Be prepared to need or bring an extension for your electrical cord. The first site we booked was 21. The electrical boxes were way too far from our RV hookup, no matter what we tried. The campground had 2 extension cords but they had already been lent out. The ranger called Home Depot and found one for us but it was $50! Thankfully, the ranger moved us to another site where we had to park our RV on an angle to reach our cord but it worked. The site was unlevel, but not a problem for our hydraulic jacks. The awning couldn't come all the way out. The interior roads can be a little tight but as long as everyone parked their vehicles off of the interior road then you should be OK. The bike trail was awesome! We enjoyed riding to Moomer's ice cream at east bay pizza and riding our bikes to downtown Traverse. There is a pedestrian overpass to walk to the beach. We didn't see the playground, but there are playgrounds off of the bike trail, including a great one at the pizza place. The site was tough at first, but once we were in our site this turned out GREAT! - Yellow Submarine

Pros: As stated in earlier reviews, this is an older park. The grounds are quite nice with good walking trails. Very dog friendly! The WiFi was the best I've seen. In our site the water pressure was acceptable and the sewer port was accessable. Cons: The site we were given was so out of level we felt like cliff dwellers. The electric service was terrible. Voltage down to 103 VAC at times. When we asked for a different site, we were told that none were available. This however turned out not to be the case. They did send their electrician who concluded that nothing could be done about the low voltage. We feared for the health of our air conditioning all night. We will not return.

Park is an older park with great ambience. The pool looks to be clean but we didn't use it. All gravel roads with a nice hiking trail at the rear of the park. We walked each day, exploring the loop. Our site was fairly level but some are not near level, so be prepared with wood or blocks. The water pressure was terribly inconsistent. At one point I told my wife it was the best we had experienced, but later that night it was down to a trickle. The services on some sites are poorly laid out requiring long extensions to sewer, water, and/or electric depending how you want to be positioned on the site. - OurNextStage

Rose Lake is a quiet campground with a nice beach on Rose Lake. It is very wooded and all roads are dirt. Care is needed for larger rigs as some turns are tight. Sites are not paved and many are not level. There is a boat launch also. Facilities are clean, and staff is very polite and helpful. - Uncledon

Well laid out with very nice landscaping. Clean and well maintained. We had a pull in site which faced the pond. Very nice. It's an ownership park but people are not cliquish. Wifi was not so hot didn't work one whole day so we opted to use our tether service. It's Tengonet anyway which we never had success with. Very nice clubhouse area. Close to Traverse City and all of it's tourism. - jeffnbarb

One of the best RV resorts we have stayed at to date. Very clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are just about perfect.
If you use a tow dolly for your TOAD as soon as you check in and get to your site the staff will pick your tow dolly up and store it for you. When you are ready to leave they will bring it back and help you hook up if needed. This resort is class A, C and 5th wheel resort only. Designated area/sites for the class C's and 5th wheels. All RV's must be 10 years or newer and must be 28ft. or longer. Beautiful grounds and area. We will return. - John Herthel
