Yankee Springs is a relatively large campground on Gun Lake which is a flood control type man made lake. Beautiful and a great lake to ski, tube wake board etc. The campground is an older facility. During our visit the temperatures were in the low 90s. Our 30 amp service continued to cut out to the degree that the second day in I talked to the park rangers about getting my money back. They were very understanding but did suggest that I try plugging into the power pedestal with out using my Progressive Industries power and surge protector. I politely declined telling them I have more faith in the P.I. device that their power supply. A couple of real nice rangers than came by and changed the circuit breakers and plug socket. This seemed to do the trick. If it wasn't for the great service by the three rangers who addressed my power issue I would've given YS a lower rating. This campground lets anything go. They do not seem to limit the amount of people on each campsite, though the Michigan DNR reservation system asks how many people will be on a site. Next to us was a birthday party with over 20-30 people sitting around pop up shelters with numerous kids. At other sites you would see extension cords running all over the place to power all kinds of electronics beside just campers. No wonder they have brown outs when the temps get into the 90s. It a shame because YS has some real nice water front campsites that some folks had their boats tied up to shoreline posts. Swimming in the lake is easy and convenient either at the small campground only sandy beach or anywhere along the shoreline, the water is very shallow a long way out. My wife and I don't think we would return to Yankee Springs, its just to crowded and loud for our camping pleasure. - vincee

This park is nice and very quiet for as busy as it is. Fishing has several piers into the lake and the lake is large enough for all boating activities. Most sites were large enough and were arranged so groups can 'circle the wagons'. The only problem was the mosquitoes which were very bad. - dalenoel

We very much enjoyed our stay and Yankee Springs. The sites were big and wooded, the beach and fishing pier were very excellent. The playground was a bit dated but the kids still enjoyed it. My only complaint was the lack of water to each site. We knew that going in but it was a bigger issue for us than we originally thought it would be. Also I expected parking for my tow vehicle would have been included but it wasn't so I had to pay an extra $24 for a season parking permit. - tripletdad

Deep Lake is the rustic campground in the Yankee Springs Recreation Area. Fantastic place to camp to "get away from it all". Most sites are in the deep woods along with a few more sunny sites. There are quite a few smaller sites or sites for tents only so be sure to check. Sites range from grassy to sandy and a few overlook the lake. Our site only had one other site within 100 yards of it. On check-in you can go thru the campground and choose a site. There are 120 sites, only half are reserveable and they are typically only full on holidays. Being rustic there are no hookups but there are several vault toilets (clean) and well water via pump available. You can use a generator during the day so long as it’s quiet. Wood available at the ranger station. There is a dump station over at the modern Gun Lake campground that you can use, less then 10 miles away. Lots of hiking trails and mountain bike opportunities. Very, very quiet. - bonscott

We stayed here over Memorial day. It`s an OK campground. We had a full hookup site. The hookups were in good shape. Was a little on the tight side for getting into, but OK. Most sites are shaded. No full hookups along the river. Not a lot to do here except for canoeing on the river which was fun, kids had a blast! They have an indoor pool which is small. It would be nice to also have an outdoor pool. They have a small minigolf which is run down. The space would be better served as an outdoor pool. We would go back again if in the area. - dodge guy

It features friendly staff, a nice, woodsy type atmosphere. The sites are plenty big with lots of shade. We did a kayak trip and it was great. The weather was great, so we would have preferred an outside pool instead of the indoor pool, which is very loud when the kids are playing. - Terrie G.

This campground was mainly seasonal campers. And most of those campers were run down, dirty, and need to be retired. There were families living there in their van for weeks. The campsites are extremely close and there isn't much room to park your vehicle. There were A LOT of drunks and a lot of barking dogs. I would not recommend this campground. - redheadmichigan

This is a wonderful campground with a friendly staff, clean inviting pool, and a nice little store. The hookups for some of the sites was on the wrong side. No problem, we just pulled in facing the other way. We shared a sewer with our neighbor which is also not a problem. We have family in the area and had visitors several times in the 3 days we were there. It was no problem. The park is dog friendly and we had no difficulty getting satellite and antenna reception. - Connie's Co-Owner

Paid, but did not stay, left Shortly, office closed. Restrooms 1930 style and filthy. Light was one tired yellow fluorescent full of bugs and spiders over the filthy sinks. Could not see in toilet area, too dark. Paint peeling, stink. A few Seasonal die hard folks all hard wired and plumbed, so they could care less. This type of place gives RVing a Nasty name. Roads are Chuck holes and full of mud everywhere, hilly ground,no level spots. Has not been maintained in years. Run, don't walk away from this place. The rating in the Good Sam book has to be for the golf course or else one of the reviewers wasn't seeing correctly. - Oldfart

This park is nothing to write home about, but it served our needs for a visit to the Grand Rapids area. There was a fair amount of confusion over site boundaries, and it seemed that other campers were scattered around the park in a rather disorganized fashion. Getting level in our site was a bit challenging, but do-able. - CaptainNemo

Tons of stuff for the kids. We were there on a weekend and there was stuff scheduled on the hour for the kids. All of the activity stuff was in one recreation area so I wasn't chasing my kids all over the camp ground. It was nice. We didn't golf, but I would have liked to. - j4nelson

Recent new owners turned a "drinker's haven" in to a family oriented campground. Few amenities, but very quiet. Little bit of a drive from the expressway, but it was one of the closest campgrounds to Lansing, MI that had availability in short notice. - The Ketters

We arrived late in the day but were received with concern about our travel and joy we made it before dark developed. While we were not escorted to our site it was quite easy to get to the proper spot. We stayed there three nights and were pleased with the cleanliness of the entire park. Obviously many folks were there for the seasonal parts of the summer/fall which allowed them to return after their work week. We arrived on a Friday and left on a Tuesday so we had no noise factor to interrupt our stay. - Birdieman

Huge park that seems new, with paved roads and large concrete sites. Good utilities including good wifi. Lots of green space. A good number of permanent sites but most are not cluttered. Drawbacks are roads are not named and you're not lead to your site, which is not easy due to the many turns. Also, only trash containers are near the entrance, which is a long walk from most of the sites. Store, showers and laundry are at top of hill which also a long walk for those with sites closer to the entrance.
In our site the utilities were at the front of the site which is a long reach for electric and water. - padre

An awesome Resort. The rate was their "off season" rate minus GS. This place was prefect! All roads are paved...no dirt/mud anywhere. The only reason I rated it a 9 was the Wifi was spotty/inconsistent, and we were close to two repeaters. Wifi first thing in the morning is excellent. It is by a water feature and mosquitos early morning and after dark are fierce -not fault of park. - User3274

The sites are reasonably spaced. Utility hookups are in good working order. There is a sufficient amount of shade trees. The sites were long enough to accommodate our 39' MH along with car dolly and car. Nice pool and play area for the kids. Out hosts are very pleasant and accommodating. We like this campground. - BurrKo

We had a great time here with our family. It was a small adjustment getting used to the no cement pad area for our motorhome and the mud and dirt everywhere, but hey that was part of the fun. The owners are incredible people. They changed their internet service from DSL to a cable company and had some issues. When I called and talked to the gal at the front about it, she handled it real professionally. Ten minutes later one of the owners drove her pickup down to our motorhome, knocked and had a neighborly discussion about it. She was not rushed or irritated or nothing but wanted me to know exactly what was going on. That was more than enough for me and let our family know that we are appreciated as customers. A real surprise. Later on Labor Day weekend they surprised us again by having the local Dorr Fire Department treat the kids to spraying down by fire hose and tour of fire truck. Very unexpected. The staff at Hungry Horse is all VERY professional and friendly. Their store is very southern style and makes you feel part of the outdoor experience. Pool was spotless and had an 8ft deep end the kids loved. They are a great campground with some fantastic seasonal people that waive you down when you are passing by and get you engaged in the conversation. It was a very family oriented campground and we won't hesitated to visit it again! - ProfessionalFamily

Quiet, friendly campground designed for family use. Sites are large grass pads with plenty of trees. Showers and restrooms are clean, but would only rate them 8.5. We are traveling from the west coast, but if we are in the area again, we would stay here. It seems all RV parks make a big issue of pet control, but fail to enforce. This one was no different. - Boyds nest

If you have 2 kids, 10 and under, this is your dream! Lots of blow up jumpy things and candy gooies in the store for them.
If you are like us, avoid on weekends at all costs.
Place is like a former KOA, but needs about 100 loads of gravel to level out sites that are mostly dirt and tree roots. Lots of trees. We ask to change from a rooted dirt site and they put us on another dirt site, even though there were unused gravel sites available.
We will probably not stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

Great family rv park. Lots of organized activities for kids and many very unique and popular types of playground equipment. Dramatic improvements over the last 4 years in many areas. The park is a great mix of seasonal campers, vacationing families with kids, and and a few overnighters. Lots of shade. - freestyle freddy

My site was big enough for my trailer but most appeared to be smaller. A little tight backing in and lot was not level at the back of the space. Lots of kids and families, as campground is really a great place for them. Even with all the kids the campground was very quiet after dark. I would return again as staff and other campers are very friendly. - bkick

This park is actually located on the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum and its primary use is as an overnight parking area for those wanting to visit the museum. A museum visit can easily span 2 days, so it is nice to spend the night without having to leave the grounds.
The museum spans 75 acres and is the largest of its kind in the US.
There is adequate space for 6 RVs and electrical service is limited to 20 amp service. Other than that, it is essentially dry camping. No dump site on the grounds.
There is an original 1960s Diner on the grounds that serves good food from a limited menu. - Lakewood90
