We have stayed at Wandering Wheels before but never again.

Our site offered no privacy. We were in a long row of pull through sites, with alternating pull-through direction. This meant that our trailer door opening side faced the door opening side of the neighboring trailer, so we ended up sharing the small picnic table / fire pit space.

The pool was not open (4th of July week) and by the looks of it had not been open all year.

Wireless service was practically non-existent. You could connect to the service, but it was so slow that it was non-usable. ATT cell service was zero (not the park's fault, but FYI).

The single set of bathrooms was small, dark and dirty.

There was no lighted sign for the park on the highway. I drove past it twice one night, and I knew where it was!

Very low water pressure. I had to unhook from their water system and use water from my tank.

All this for $50 per night. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Large spacious sites with packed dirt. Beautiful shaded sites. Got a bit muddy when it rained. Nice grassy open spots up front.

Great location for visiting Picture Rocks and Munising.

No cable or WiFi working while we were there. Overall satisfied with the place. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the boat cruise to Pictured Rock

The pool was empty with a hole in the bottom of it. The miniature golf course has been taken out. The laundry was out of order. The Wi-Fi only works in the office. There website still lists all these amenities but they are not available. We stayed there last year and it WAS a nice park. The owners have seemed to given up on it. The mosquitos were also horrible.

Spacious dirt sites with lots of mature trees enclosing them. No cable TV while we were there. One country radio station. Close to Munising and Pictured Rocks. Plenty things to do in the area. Pricey at $46 for full hookups. Wi-Fi is weak and unstable in back sites. Road is narrow and winding getting to sites but had no problem with my 37' rig. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were parked on the "lawn" out front of the campground, which did have electric, water, and sewer available. Cable, while advertised, had been cut off by the cable company without notice (which apparently has happened to other UP campgrounds). The biggest drawback we had was the incredible smoke from many campfires, making it impossible to sit outside during the evening. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a full hookup, which was level with lots of shade. The sites are dirt, which get very muddy in the rain. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

We were very disappointed with our stay, site was not clean. We requested a site with 50amp, and did not realize until our battery in our camper died we did not have the correct power. We spoke to several other campers and we informed the campground had power issues the entire 5 days they were staying. We addressed this several times the office personal and were told they had been having issues and that the electrician had checked our electric al box on our lot and the issue was with our camper. Our camper was only 7 days old and everything worked correctly the 3 nights we camped at another location prior to arriving at this campground. We contacted the RV Dealership several times thinking the issue was with our new camper. We went to the office several times and we were told maybe we using too much power. They told us that they had shut the power off but turned it back on and we needed the reset our inverter. The night before we left we had the camper next to us come over and inform us they nor the camper on the other side of them had power. We cut our vacation short to take our camper back to the dealer. After reading the reviews it appears the power issues have been on-going. The putt-putt golf was very outdated. This was our first trip to the area and very disappointed with our experience with the campgounds. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is acutally in Wetmore 3 mi E of town. Access is good, interior roads are gravel with some dust. We had a full hookup pull-through out in field in front of office with room for slide outs. It would have been tight back in the trees where most of the sites were. Wi-Fi was good, Verizon access was good. Utilities worked fine once we had them rotate the 50 amp service plug as it was in upside down, i.e. round hole was on top. Water pressure was low. Satellite came in from roof but we were in site #1 so other sites may not have worked. Picnic table and fire pit. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

Hello. This park advertised wifi but once we checked in the wifi was non-existent. We waited until the next day and when the wifi still didn't work we called the office. A lady in the office basically told me we were wrong, the wifi worked and that was all. It never worked our entire stay unless my husband went up closer to the office but even then the wifi was weak. The spots are VERY wooded and damp and attract a lot of bugs. Great location if you are in town to see the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore. Clean restrooms. We didn't use the showers or laundry. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, but it really does not offer anything special. First, the good stuff. The sites are large, mostly level and well shaded. The pool is immaculate and well cared for. As for the downside, there is nothing that is a deal breaker but there are several items that should be mentioned. The playground is outdated, the store does not offer much but the real problem was the bathrooms. They were clean, but the showers and stalls were extremely small. If you are a large person, don't even bother. That being said, we would still come back because the campground was nice enough and the things to do in the area warrant more than 4 days here.

The sites for a big rig are very spacious and private. The roads to get there are dirt, narrow, tree lined and not real well marked. They have cable but no satellite is available. This was our second choice for the area and it worked out fine. Electric and water available at the site, but no sewer. Dump is available. Seemed a little high price, but not many options available. Would stay here again as a second option. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

I think I'm being generous by giving this place a "4". We were on the grass in the front across from the office. These sites are very long but also very narrow. Grass is weedy with lots of bare muddy spots. Scruffy and in need of raking and cleaning. The interior of the park is very wooded. The sites are a mixture of tents, pop-ups and RVs. Although we had W/S/50 Amp/Cable and WiFi, that was not the case if you wanted to stay within the wooded area. The roads are all dirt/mud with lots of pot holes. The whole place is in need of an up-date and a really good cleaning. There is no security of any kind. People and cars coming and going at all hours. The laundry had 3 dirty washers and only one working dryer. We had come to Munising to take the Pictured Rocks Cruise which we did. There is only one other C.G. nearby and that was full. It's too bad there aren't more options because it really is a nice area to visit. We stayed, but sadly, we would never come back again. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here one night late Sept 2012. No one in the office to take our $$ at arrival or the next day. Finally just before we were going to pull out and mail them a check they showed up. Had 4-5 other people approach us with the same problem. All arrived at or before 3pm the day prior. Most of us stayed in the area nearest the highway, as the rear side of the park where all the sites are, are all overgrown with big trees and hard to get a moderate/big rig size unit into. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed ten nights. We used the camp for a base to see area. We had a sunny/grassy site in front of office. Sort of semi circle with full hookup. Rest of park is behind the office. There are very wooded/dirt sites back there. Some full hookups in wooded area. Very small laundry area with people waiting at times. As others stated about the kids, we did not see any over the top kid routine. It was just normal stuff. Fair condition pool but cold. Fair condition mini golf. I heard trails do exist way to the back. Train is loud, but only comes by a few times a week. There is a land fill across the road but no real issues with this. Just noted. Dog friendly with no real rules. Wi-Fi good and Verizon signal excellent. We'd stay again. Price was steep for what you get, but it is close to all sites in area. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you're looking for a campground that attracts families with kids, then this is the place for you. It does seem to be a great spot to bring a group together, as it provides a lot of play space for kids. So first... the positives of this campground: - The sites are spacious and VERY shaded and mostly cleaned. - Lots of activities for kids - great family vacation spot - The WiFi was actually usable But that's about where the charm ends. Here are the things we disliked about this park: - Even on their website, they obscure their actual address by just listing the street name. When you look the location up on Google, it shows it as waterfront just west of Munising - which seems like a good place to be. And that's why we booked a reservation here after not being able to get into the municipal tourist park which is actually on the water. But search further on their maps, and you see it's actually EAST of Munising, and not at all close to water. - We're kid-free full timers, and family oriented vacation spots are not our ideal location at all. When we arrived, there were tons of kids all over the place. Not pleasant or relaxing for us. If being around lots of kids isn't your thing, don't ever count on getting a chance at the heated pool. And be prepared for lots of sounds of kids playing. - Many of the pull-thru sites are situated so that your front porch and your neighbor's face each other. While there's lots of distance between them, this greatly reduces your feeling of privacy. If we had to stay here again, we'd request one of the back in sites in the back, those seemed to be the most private feeling and away from the pool and playground! - The amenities here are seriously undersized and aged. Only two showers for each gender available, which is hardly enough on a busy weekend where each of the sites has an average of 4 people on them - many of them tent or pop-up campers. The laundry room had 3 working washers and only 2 dryer (1 of which wasn't working all the great, requiring multiple runs to actually dry) - this caused a massive back-up, and had us up to 2am just to work our loads in. It's way too humid and shaded here to line dry. Skip their laundry facility and go to the 24hr one in town instead! - Most of the sites don't have sewer hook-ups (only a few do, they don't publish how many). - Most of the electric hook-ups are just 30A... which is probably ok considering it's so shaded and the weather usually mild. We only had to run a single A/C for a couple hours anyway. But the price point for this place suggest far more! - While the shade provides relief from the sun, it is VERY shaded. So shaded that we had to turn on all our lights during the day just to keep from feeling drab and dark. - There is absolutely nothing in walking distance and you're a bit far from town, despite them heavily advertising the Cherrywood Lodge next-door as an amenity (so you don't have to cook!). The lodge had no sign of life during our prime season weekend stay. - They advertise 400 acres of walking trails. We found none. - This place is seriously overpriced for what it offers. At $40/night, we expect so much more in up kept and quantity of the facilities. The AT&T signal was faint and 2G. There's a usable Verizon 3G signal that can be boosted in if needed. The WiFi, thankfully, was fairly usable. We would actively avoid coming back to this location. And we seriously regret that we pre-paid for 3 nights here. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.
