The campground itself is beautiful! Most sites are densely wooded lots but there are also some pull-through sites on open ground (but close to the highway). Most sites were spacious. Cable TV signal was great and there is a very nice open shelter area with picnic tables and a concrete base. That's where the pro's end.

Pool was out of service, at least a month. Contrary to their website, there is no Wi-Fi, game room (they advertise 2), Miniature Golf or "great playground" (there are a few pieces of 70's era playground equipment).

The restrooms are dimly lit, outdated and in need of repair/upgrades and...they are closed from 12-2 daily for cleaning! Closed!

Check-in was pleasant but every other interaction with staff wasn't. The desk person was rude my wife when she asked about the lack of advertised amenities and rude to my daughter when she asked for a badminton racquet. I was very polite when I asked for a full refund on night three so we could leave early- and I'm happy the owner obliged- but she was rude about it. I decided to keep my mouth shut and just let her process the refund to my credit card. Campgrounds don't understand that families with 3 kids are researching for pools when they make reservations. When you start your stay by telling the kids "no pool" it sucks!

If everything was as advertised at this campground I would have rated it at least a 7 or 8. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt with an 8. I'm deducting 2 points for no pool that should have been repaired given the month it hasn't been working (and no phone call to let us know- they knew we had 3 kids!), 1 point for shoddy bathrooms and showers, 1 point for zero Wi-Fi (not even a hint of an access point), and 1 for a rude staff. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Although there are some bad reviews, we found this to be a very acceptable park. The sites are wider than some we encountered in this area and they are wooded and shaded. The sites and roads are dirt so wet conditions could be challenging. There are two showers for males and two for females and this is not enough, there is a lengthy wait at peak times. The pool is out of service but they have arranged to use the motel pool next door. The staff is friendly and helpful. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here in the past and pulled in for the night. Even with a truck camper we could not get level in the site. The site was all dirt and mud as it had just rained today. There is no grass in the site we were given.

The pool is torn out, but you can get a key ($10.00 deposit) for the hotel next door. The price is just too much for what they are offering. We will not stop here again, even for a stop over. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Truck Camper.

Directly off Michigan 28 about three miles east of Munising. Did not see any direction signs for campground until the low one at the entrance. Camped in a 35 foot 5th wheel on pull through site 35, which is sandy dirt with good shade from well trimmed trees. Site is easy access, fairly wide, & level with plenty of room for truck. Full hook up with 30 amps. Electric/cable TV pedestal is in the front of site requiring an extension cord & long cable. Roads are sand/dirt & very dusty when vehicles drive past sites & thick underfoot when walking. Road dust & smoke from many campfires hang heavily in the air all of the time. Cable TV was good, but WiFi was nonexistent from site. Can hook up electronics close to, & at, office. Bath house is okay, but is messy in the morning. There are only two shower stalls stalls for a busy campground that has many tenters to use them. Laundry facility is borderline clean (dryer ran for 45 minutes or so on high setting, but clothes not dry when done). Office ran short of quarters to operate machines, so bring a supply if need to do laundry. Small playground; large sparsely grassy area for lawn games. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Pool not open due to leak; however, the indoor pool located at Econo Lodge next door can be used with a $10 deposit for an access key.

Our full hookup 50 amp electric spot was a stretch of dirt with a close up view through our windshield of the garbage dumpster and a sewer line that didn't drain (electric and water were fine and cable TV was adequate). We notified the office as soon as we hooked up about the sewer, but 6 days later nothing had been done. All of this glory for $47 per night! We were in front of the office with no tree issues, so our satellite dish worked great. They have what used to be a swimming pool, but last winter it cracked and drained. They have let it go all spring and summer without getting it fixed. They advertise a mini golf course, but it has been removed. Unlike others, our WiFi worked great, but we have a signal amplifier, so maybe that is the difference. In the unlikely event that we were to revisit this area, we would stay elsewhere. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Some mildly interesting waterfalls with short hikes in the area. Painted rocks are interesting, but we recommend seeing them by kayak or pontoon boat rather than on a cruise. Best restaurant in the area is the Haywire about 10 miles southeast of town.

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.

I feel some of the recent highly critical reviews are unfair. We stayed for 4 nights. This is a very busy campground, but they had our reservations in order despite us placing them months in advance, and check-in was quick, and easy, and handled by gracious staff. The park was clean and well kept up. I did not use their restroom facilities or shower, but looked in a couple times, and found them clean and modern. It's true the pool is out of service, but there is a large posted notice at check-in that they have made arrangements with the motel next door for campers to use the motel's indoor pool free of charge. There IS Wifi, but as is common in campgrounds where I've stayed, reception is often iffy and slow at best. Cable TV was available and operational at my site. We stayed in one of the grassy sites nearer the road, but road noise to dropped off at night and was not a disturbance. Sites further into the campground are extremely wooded, but even large rigs appeared to have no problem with negotiating the roads and backing angles. It's regrettable that some reviewers report they had a negative experience, but for us, I have to say this was a good choice and we enjoyed both the campground and the Munising area attractions. We camped at Wandering Wheels Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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 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.
