My wife and I have going to Harbortown for more than 10 yrs., recommending this park to fellow campers. But we have noticed a change in customer treatment and enforcement of printed rules. We see dogs off leash and site violations which seem to be ignored. On our last visit this month the next site campers returned from a day of fishing and parked their large boat on site and began cleaning fish, even though there is a fish cleaning station available. The office said they would check on this but never did. We went to the office and said we had family coming to visit and felt we shouldn't have to sit next to or smell the boat. The manager said too bad, the boat stays, it's not against the rules. Rule in the printed brochure explicitly said 1 vehicle and 1 camper per site. He was very rude and insulting and boasted that this was "my place" and if we didn't like it we could move on to another place. After we strongly expressed our opinion on the situation, we got a refund, left and went elsewhere. On leaving Harbortown another camper said others also had issues with management. To our surprise the sites at Sterling were larger, cheaper and with very friendly staff. Plus a nice view of Lake Erie. Our family arrived there and a good time was had by all! For a so called business owner (?) he needs to show respect for campers who support his business. We definitely will not return!!! And definitely not worth the $52 we paid per night, plus $4 per visiting guest. We camped in a motorhome. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The campground is easy enough to get to, but once you're there getting to your site can be unnecessarily complicated. If you're looking to get away from it all and enjoy some quiet family time, this isn't the place for you. Sites are extremely close to one another! We were fortunate to have lovely neighbors, so that part could've been worse. The staff themselves were incredibly rude and unwelcoming. I've seen the reviews that rules were not enforced, but my experience was not the case. The staff ride around in their golf carts barking orders at guests.

The park has a lot of potential under proper management, so it's a shame that it's being run in such a poor way. My family and I will not be returning. For the money you spend here (they charge for EVERY little thing) you could stay in a five star hotel with everything included.

If you're going to stay here, be sure to double and triple confirm your reservation and site. Staff is of the mind that they don't make errors and aren't very accommodating when they do. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights at PP America, then full price ($54) the third night. So the average was acceptable, but the $54 price was in my opinion excessive for this park. The sites were a decent size with grass on each side. The pad is extremely narrow and there are trees that a growing up on each side at the entry and exit of the pull through sites. I had to back out as I could not go out forward with the trees in protruding onto the corners of the sites (45' moho).

The wi-fi was horrible. Could get it late at night or very early in the morning. Other than that it was hit and miss whether could connect, as if it did connect it was very slow. Seems like for this kind of money, the wi-fi could be better.

Hookups were good, lots of cable stations to choose from. Was open to receive Dish satellite. Mostly quiet except for an occasional train going by.

The office staff was efficient and very helpful. They recommended a restaurant in Monroe, Public House, which was terrific. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nightly rate based on monthly stay. This is a very clean park with a nice pool, activities for kids and a fun site next door with mini-golf, go-carts and game room. We stay on the long term side so can't say much about the in/out area. Plenty of groceries, a mall with theater and a few big box stores. About 20 - 35 minutes to Toledo, OH. This was a very wet summer and we had water come to our fire ring a couple times, but we stayed dry. The owner is unbelievably unfriendly. He will look the other way rather than speak. Staff is moderately friendly. If you don't have a good antenna, digital tv or satellite you won't get tv. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a full hookup pull-through site. Site was spacious and landscaped well. We did not use any of the facilities, but everything was well maintained and very clean. Easy in and out of site as well as in/out of campground. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground located about 45 minutes south of Detroit and Ann Arbor. Rate reflects weekly full hookup site. Roads are paved, very wide and sites are level but narrow concrete or asphalt pads with fairly large grass area between sites. Each site has picnic table and fire pit and typically one or two trees. Wi-Fi was excellent most of the time. Sites are open and no issues with getting satellite. Park is very clean and well maintained. Even the grass has few weeds. There is a lot of large grassy areas around the exterior. Facilities include a large clubhouse, pool, basketball and volleyball courts, covered pavilion and nice playground. There is a put-put/go cart facility next door with easy walk access. They pick up trash daily and you can order firewood delivered to your site. Park is convenient to I-75 but some road and railroad noise. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed 8 days in a 45' RV. We were told we had a pull-through but they had nothing when we arrived and said they were all booked our entire stay. However we saw several several empty sites.

The staff was not friendly, never said hi or waved. The will NOT accept US mail which is really a pain when you are full time and finally spend several days in one place. They will send the mail back! It rained several days which caused a lake next to our coach and put our BBQ in a foot of water. Terrible mosquitos!

The RV park has amenities but there is nothing to do nearby other than 45 minute drive to the Detroit or Toledo. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The RV Park is as shown on their website. It was clean, well maintained and had decorations for Halloween. The pool was already closed. Bathrooms clean. Internet was ok. Close to shopping. Friendly staff. Would stay here again. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a fairly nice park. Located off RT75, has paved roads and adequate hook-ups. Navigating with a large rig is challenging, as the roads are narrow with tow vehicles parked along the way. Site pads are marginally wider than a MH with a 3-inch drop off from the pad to grass. Be cautious when entering or exiting the RV as the unleveled surfaces may cause a fall. This CG is family friendly and children are permitted to bike and skate board throughout the park. Each pad has a fire ring, some are located too close to the RV to be considered safe to use. Fortunately our neighbor recognized the hazard and didn't light up. Be sure to confirm reservations for accuracy prior to arrival, as the management is steadfast that their data is never in error. However, they will do their best to compensate for your error and attempt to accommodate your needs. Needless to say we probably will not stay here in the future. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

People are very friendly. Nice park but I couldn't rate the bathroom and shower a 10 is because there is nowhere to put your soap and shampoo. Also, water gets into your dressing area because they have no curb to stop the water from entering the dressing area. Otherwise it's nice to have your own shower and bathroom area. They have 6 separate stalls so that's nice. The park is beautiful and we would stay there again. Nice area and wonderful park with a lot of room. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed on the long term side and price is based on monthly rate. This is a very clean well kept park. The showers (6) are individual rooms for lots of privacy inside the activity/laundry/snack bar area. Staff are friendly. Streets are wide enough to get around and most of the lots on long term side are quite roomy. I would have rated it a 10 had it not been for the cable TV problem. We had a flat screen TV but it wasn't digital, and we could not get any channels. We were told at the front desk that we needed a digital TV to get their cable. They went so far as to say we needed to purchase a new one. We have stayed in other parks that are totally digital and we were always given a converter box (supplied by cable company) usually a $25.00 deposit so you'll return it. I'm sure this cable company would supply them to the park as they do any of their customers who do not have digital TVs. Since nice RV parks are few and far between in this area we will probably return when we visit family and friends. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great park! We arrived a few hours before check in and the clerk apologized because our site wasn't ready and offered us full use of the facilities and a shaded spot to park while waiting. The clerk also offered suggestions for easy day trips that were RV friendly. When we arrived back later that afternoon our site was ready. This place has plenty to do if you have a family and it is quiet enough if that your thing! Also if going in late June beware of the fish flies. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, well laid-out campground with wide streets and concrete pads. Our premium back-in site was easy to get into and out of. While there are trees near the street, there are none near the pads, so we had no satellite issues. We did not use any facilities. We would consider staying here again if we are in the area. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.
