Rustic camping experience with wonderful views, walking paths, and quiet. Grass sites that are good sized. Owners restrict size of mats to protect grass. We just folded ours in half. No sweat. Hookups are old school with two sites sharing central pedestal. Cable is free. Owners are on site and very nice. We'll be back. - wendie T

This is a very nice park deep in the woods of Upper Peninsula Michigan. Town is close by, offering everything you need, and Tahquamenon Falls State park is close as well. There are hiking trails within the campground. It is a family friendly park with a nice playground and dog area. Grounds are groomed nicely with lots of mature trees for good shade, but satellite users seemed able to receive signals. Cable is free. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We couldn't get our cable to work on set up and they came right over and helped us. All services worked well. Park is very clean. Sites are grass and mostly level. We would stay here again. - oosuzieqr

Nice, spacious and clean campground. Beach on the campground is great. - 2016_camper

Clean but only partly open. Upgrades were being made to about half the park. No water or sewer at the site. Park staff were very friendly and helpful. They allowed me to go the wrong way on a one way to be able to park and to depart the camp site. Some turns were too tight for easy travel. We loved the area. - Donulus

Good park. Would stay there many nights. A little windy at times where you can't have the awning out or camp fire but we loved it. The roads are paved but the pavement is gone in some places. The road to the park is very good, but lots of curves and hills to get there but not bad. The dump and fill station are very easy to access, the boat ramp is good up to a 21' boat, andthe fishing is great. The playground and beach are clean and well maintained. The only things I can find with this park that some people might not like is a its little remote and cell phone coverage is weak. but if you want modern amenities with a park that gets you away from it all then this is the park for you. - Detroit Redwings

Very run down facility. Low water pressure (30 psi). Had electrical issues with the 50 amp service. 103 volts on one leg, 137 volts on the other. Our electrical management system kept shutting down the power to prevent damage. Couldn't run our AC due to the issue. The office said it shouldn't be a problem because "the wiring is new". They told me there was no one available to work on it.
The roads are dirt with no gravel. Good luck with the roads if it rains.
No cable or over-the-air TV signal and too many trees for satellite signals.
It's just an old run down park for nearly $50 per night. - Tucsonjim

We like the fact that there are lots of trees. We loved the heated pool which was very clean. Bathrooms and showers were neat and clean. We had plenty of room where our site was. We have a trailer but it looked a little tight if you had a motor home. Staff was friendly. They come around and collect your trash at your site every morning, which was nice. Only recommendation we would suggest is a little work on the picnic tables. Otherwise, no complaints. We will stay here again. - dmpemt

This is a tired, old KOA that is badly in need of updating. The laundry room is in the basement and consists of 4 antique washing machines and 4 antique dryers (of which only 3 still work). The showers are separate from the bathrooms and modern, but also have a subterranean feel to them with no natural light and poor ventilation. My site was an uneven combination of mud and gravel, the pedestal had obviously been backed over at some point and was held together with electrical tape. The park has wifi but I was unable to make it work. - Pugsly

This is a primitive and rustic type of campground with full hookups. You are basically parking in the owners yard behind some cabins he also rents. There are only six RV parking places all fairly level; well shaded with 30 amp electric, water, and sewer; and well spaced apart. The combination bath house/laundry can only accommodate one at a time for either a shower or to do laundry. There is no cable, wi-fi, or cell phone reception, and no local TV reception. - lllkrob

This large campground has a lakefront area with beach and marina, and many shaded sites, both back-in and pull-thru. One of the few that has sewer hookups and 50A power. The deluxe sites have concrete pads, tables and fire rings with generous spacing; however they are in the trees so there is no opportunity for satellite TV. Back-ins are up against the tree line, on fairly level grass, and some are satellite friendly. Cable had many channels but was grainy analog. The park WiFi was excellent throughout our stay, and Verizon cell/data worked well. Very busy on weekends but fairly quiet during the week. Large playground for children, small office with only minimal supplies, and three miles to the small town of Curtis. We found the manager to be helpful and friendly, as were the few seasonal residents. - Meanderman

Nice quiet campground. Most campsites back up in the woods with a central open area for dog walk, playing frisbee. Lake access with row boats to use. Sites were large enough, though not entirely level (high in the back). - Liv2RV

We went at the end of the season so we weren't able to use any of the lake facilities. We parked on the grass on # 3. It was fairly level, but would suggest you have blocks for your jacks. We were able to get satellite from that spot but not #1. We also had good internet, but the park was pretty empty. We also had pretty good cell service - Verizon. The park seems old but it looks like they're trying to make improvements. The location is good. You can get just about anywhere on the upper peninsula within about an hour and a half. It looked like they had a small beach area & maybe a swimming hole. The laundry room was old, but the machines worked, were reasonably priced & it was clean. We would return if in the area. - goldenruler

Supposed to be a pull through site but they set up tents in front so we could not pull out. Does not have 30 amp service. Only 110 that you share with others on the line. Lights will dim.
Fish cleaning station never cleaned and made you gag walking by it. Owner was drunk and argumentive. Buildings run down. Did not cut grass. Dump station has tree stumps in the way of pulling up to it. And road into this place is one lane. So you hope no one is coming. - Bravesmom

On Upper Peninsula, drop dead gorgeous location. Only 6 RV sites and they can be difficult to get into. We kayak fished right from the camp. They rent pontoon boats and kayaks and the fishing was good. We felt comfortable leaving our own kayaks tied to a tree. There are about 6-8 small cabins and a couple of larger cabins. We had trouble with our EMS shutting down our power when the voltage got too low. I think we were at the end of the line electricity-wise. After the cabins emptied out we had no more trouble but electricity was 20 amp so we only used it for lights, TV, etc. Told the owner and he just said he had 40' rigs in there with no problem so he obviously didn't understand that size makes no difference in electrical. Playground for the kids, sand, and shallow water quite a ways out. We would stay there again knowing it's difficult access but beautiful lake and views. - horseylady

Price is for water/electric site. Called and they penciled us in. Good choice for a rainy night. Grass site, way long and roomy for our 27 ft motor home. Easy, friendly check in. Learned lots about our next stop, Pictured Rocks. Didn't use bath house due to rain. Would definitely stop again. Canoes looked fun. Beautiful treed area. - USA16RVer

We were driving through on a road trip and scouted out both campgrounds in the area and decided this one was the nicest, just because of the personal touches and appearance. We enjoyed chatting with the owner and learned a lot about the UP that we didn't know. We didn't get on the river, but the campground has canoes and kayaks for rent and for those that enjoy the sport, it was a good setup for a day or half day trip. The campground was very neat and clean. Wifi was available at site 3 and since ATT cell service was iffy, that was nice. Our site was level and grass with tree buffers between sites. We only stayed one night, so sewer was not needed. Dump station at entry to park. We would stay here again. - busyteach

This was our first overnight stop after crossing the bridge and what a treat it was. We went without reservations and in the UP things close earlier then anywhere else. I called them at 8:30pm and they had just closed, however they stayed open for us and waited for us to get here. We also stayed on site 10 and had no issues at all. Our trailer is 30' and has a 6' slide off the end and a 2' slide off the side. We had more then enough room. There are 4 sites next to 10 and they were all about the same size. Our children (all 5 of them ages between 5-16) swam in the river right at our site until they could not see their hands in front of their face. And then went right back in the next day. They did not mind if there was muck, you just have to be a little careful of the little bit of dead fall in the water. Staff was very friendly, the store was very nice and the overall campground was very clean. I liked that it was small: it was very personal and natural. Also the road traffic did not bother us at all. We did not use the dump station as if did look frustrating. That and no playground was about the only things we did not like. We will go back! - Mrs Robinson

This park is only 10 minutes off of highway 2 on the UP (upper peninsula)...so if you are traveling over the top of Michigan...this works really well. We were traveling from WI to St. Ignace. This is a small rustic, old-school family campground and it is right on the river. We pulled in late in the evening and rented tubes in the morning and had the most wonderful time. You can use your own tubes...we only had one, so we rented 3 more and my husband and the kids hopped in the river at the campground, I drove down the road and picked them up 45 minutes later. It was the perfect activity before we hopped back on the road (tube rentals are $10 each). Showers were nice and hot after being in the river. We would definitely do this again! We also had a convenient W/E pull-up site (basically parallel parking in a half-moon shape that was convenient). - barrygoodtimes

We have stayed here many times over the years and have found this park very helpful and friendly.
We arrived after hours and they were very good in letting us choose whatever site we wanted that was open. There is no TV reception and no cable here but it is not a big deal to us. They also rent canoes and kayaks here. There is some road noise but it is very little.
We will come here again. - MINomad

OK if you need an overnight stay and will not be using the facilities. Bathrooms were so bad I took pictures. No soap, drying devices or towels furnished. Excessive mold in the dark showers was abundant among the cracked concrete blocks. One light bulb for two showers, one shower had a blown bulb. Men's bathroom/showers were just as bad. The park is in a pretty setting but is in a state of decay. The office is dark and not a camp store. The male owner is grumpy, although the Campground Rules paper states, "No. 1 - no frowns allowed!! Any frowns brought in are to be left at the dump station and can be picked up when you leave". Charges for electric heaters or using your air conditioner is $4.00 extra per day. Unfortunately, there is no reason to stay longer than you have to. - NatureWandering

We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday in Sept after spending time at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum about 15 miles away. We'd read about the Lower Falls campgrounds of Portage and Hemlock that provide electric, no water but with a dump station, and hoped we'd get a site. Not to worry. While Portage was nearly full, being nearer to the Lower Falls and more popular, Hemlock had plenty of open spots. On arrival, since we were out of state, we paid $31 for a state park passport which allowed us also to camp since we hoped to find other state camping spots within the next week. Normal overnight is $23. We parked in Hemlock #155 with 30 amp service. We're only 25 feet so backing in to this shorter site right across from the showers and toilets was easy and ideal. We haven't seen electric provided in a state park before so this was a luxury. The toilets were very clean and well kept. The showers have curtains with a separate changing area from the shower. The sites have large fire rings and well maintained picnic tables. While the sites are somewhat close, they were plenty big enough for slide outs and privacy. The campground is wooded and shady. No over the air TV to be had, of course. No wi-fi but we had some Verizon strength. The rangers are kind and very helpful. There aren't any printed rules provided on check in with quiet hours information and such but we assumed typical quiet hours and rules pertained. The pads are level gravel and grass and the roads are paved. This is really quite a pleasant place, quiet and worth the stopover, if there is space open. I'm sure this is a popular Summer destination in this area. - khorne

Very nice state park. We stayed at the Hemlock campground. Short hike to the lower falls. Kids had fun playing in the river at the falls. Beautiful area. We camped in a motorhome. - Jtroop

We were looking for a campground that would allow us easy access to hiking trails around the Tahquamenon Falls area. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We camped here on weekdays in July.
There are 2 campgrounds at the lower falls - Hemlock and Portage. Both are convenient to the falls and hiking. We stayed at Hemlock. This is a nice campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a variety of sites - sun, shade, short and wide, long and narrow, level and not. Sites are electric only and there's a convenient dump and water station. There's no WiFi. There's no AT&T coverage. There was a usable Verizon signal. - dsvt
