4 Parks near Montague, Michigan
Sep 2015 - $18.00
We stayed one night mid-week in September. There are only a few sites with water & electric. Many sites have electric and most are dry camping only. All sites have a view of the lake.
It's located right off of Hwy 31 but there is a lengthy dirt road to the main gate. It's still big-rig friendly but maybe not for the high-end motor coaches.
Owner is friendly, helpful and made his rounds in the evening. Great rate for PA members. - Craig H

Lake is larger than it appears on Website. Horseback riding and Golf is right across the street at Double JJ resort which is in Rothbury. A store is right down the road and the town of Montague is very close for shopping or canoeing. The lake has a lot of lakefront sites, but many of them don't have a lot of shade so you have to think about how the shade moves with the suns movements to get a shady spot. Also has more shady private sites off the lake and a large group area with several nice sites with electric grouped together. Clean fire rings, clean everything. Very clean porta-potties everywhere. Very clean campground. Only two shower stalls but clean and adequate as this new campground is not very busy yet. Really nice roped off sandbar swimming area in the middle of lake is connected to a peninsula so you have a nice safe place for swimming with little ones. Also a floating swim dock with a ramp that you can jump off into the deep side, a fishing dock, and two floating volley ball courts. Nice sandy bottom lake with small beach areas in front of most all of the lake front sites. A road goes around the campground in a circle which is great for bike rides. Also has a bike trail towards the front of the campground and another trail towards the back. Only ice, wood, and inner tubes for rent available on site. There is a store is right down the street. Close to Michigan's Adventure. Lots of wildlife and catch and release no license fishing. Only small no gas motor boats allowed. The only thing we did not like was a bit of highway noise at night after all the birds and crickets calm down. Beautiful night sky. No frills, but it has that back woods nature feel with lots of blueberry plants everywhere and lots of privacy because there are a Lot of sites. Saw a crane living right in front of our camper on the water. - csunbean

There were no signs at our (northbound) exit for this County Park. We had to rely on our GPS which isn't always correct. When we did arrive near the end of Meinert Road, there was a sign for us to turn right into the campground. We noticed most campsites were occupied by fifth wheels and trailers, probably by seasonals for use during weekends. We stayed here mid-week and we were about the only people in the campground. This campground offers 67 campsites with water, electric and sewer hookups. It has a modern bathroom with showers and a sanitary dump station. Ice and firewood are offered for sale.
All sites were well maintained and not trashy. We selected a grassy site with 30 amp service as most 50amp sites were taken. There are lots of trees but we were very lucky to get satellite service, although we frequently lost the signal. We had no service for our MYFI or our cell phone but the campground does have WIFI.
We were disappointed that the camping area was about ¼ mile from Lake Michigan. The day use was at the end of the road at the beach. This campground was okay but a little out of our way for short stays, therefore we probably would not stay here again. - gatordan

This is a wonderful city owned campground. There are a large number of seasonal campers but they are some of the nicest and quietest that we have encountered. The only campground negatives are that the sites are not real large and not all of the sites are shaded (ours was shaded). Sites are gravel with a concrete patio. No campfires permitted on site which cuts down on smoke; there is a community fire pit with wood provided. Even though the park is right in town, it is very quiet. The short-term sites are in the back section of the campground. The bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. Cable TV takes a proprietary cable box for which you must sign that you will be responsible for it (no deposit requested); we could only receive three TV stations without the cable. No credit cards taken so reservation deposits must be mailed and balance paid with cash or check. Wi-Fi was very good. Extensive bike trails and wetlands are adjacent to the campground, as are a grocery store and an ice cream stand. We definitely will return and maybe stay longer the next time! - RXA-ADM

We had a great space near the greenway, I think #52. We were able to get satellite in spite of all the trees, we just pulled forward in our space. They are close together but the convenient location makes up for it. Our front windshield looked out to beautiful marshes behind the greenway trail. The grass was lush and abundant for the dogs, they were ecstatic! We had a few mosquitos at night. The town is sweet, Saturday farmers market was wonderful. Right next to a good supermarket, ice cream parlour and coffee shops. Really enjoyed a few days here and plenty of water activities and golf nearby. I recommend this park if you can get a site near the front of the park. Mostly seasonal rigs in the back and interior. Seems to be very well run. - gardener

Many different sites available. Electric and water are popular. Good level full hookups. Wi-Fi very weak and sites are controlled to limit traffic. Had to use smart phone for email and trip planning. Hiking trails are good, and canoe/kayak/tube livery is close and excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. A well established park (I used it in 1978) and they continue with improvements and new sites. - Hornman

We really enjoyed this park. We had a site right on the creek and kids played in it all day long. They also have a decent sized pool, playground, basketball court, fishing lake nearby, small arcade, and small camp store. It is a large campground that is spread out into smaller sections which makes it seem smaller than what it actually is. Our site by the creek was quiet. There is quite a bit of shade and nice sized lots. It is 15 minutes away from Lake Michigan. Montague and Whitehall are both very nice, quaint towns. It is on White River so if you like to canoe it would be perfect. - focchick

Campground staff was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful location and well appointed sites. Our site (201) was generous in size and well shaded. Very kid friendly with nice playground and pool area. However, pool was FREEZING and not heated as advertised. Luckily, we were there on a warm day so we made it work. We were able to get good TV reception but very weak signal on the Wi-Fi. Overall we really liked the park and would go back. - family_5ers
