3 Parks near Petersburg, Michigan

We have stayed at Monroe Co. KOA several times, but only because it is the closest campground to family and friends in Toledo. This KOA, like others we've stayed in is overpriced. The on-line rate was $45, but when we checked in, the clerk said it would be $53. When I inquired about the difference, was told the $8 was a "resort fee." The clerk removed the $8 when I convinced him we were not interested in the "free" pancake breakfast, etc. WiFi was so-so. Also, as with many KOAs most sites are not satellite friendly. We were fortunate to get one that was. We camped here three days, but had to leave Friday as they were solidly booked and we didn't have a reservation. No problem there, but when I inquired if I could just dry-camp over the weekend, the response was "sure -- that will be $41 per night." Needless to say, we packed up and moved our rig to Cabelas, which is quite nice (and free). - CO2RV

KOA is a popular named campground but that's what you are buying, is the name. Overall cost was a bit high and everything the kids wanted to do cost money. There was nothing but a small store and snack shack so we had to go to Pirolli Park for our beer and pizza. There seemed to be no type of security and there was lots of rowdy people. Won't be coming back. Sorry, but we will going to another local campground that had what we needed. - campergirl26

We camped with 2 other families for one of their "Hallowe'en Weekends" and our Canadian Thanksgiving and we had a great experience! All of the staff was very friendly, the sites were scenic, the bathrooms were clean, and there were many activities to keep the kids busy. We would also like to thank the 2 staff members who were kind enough to boost the battery in our van when we left all of the lights on as we were loading to leave! We are already looking forward to next year. - kepro

The campground has mostly seasonal sites. The site we were on was terrible - mostly mud, with a few sprouts of grass here and there, and when it rained, the back of the camper, including the jacks, electrical cord, and water hose, were laying in two inches of water. Good thing I didn't need anything out of the back of the camper around that time. There was another site only a few feet behind our camper, too. It looked like most of the other 'transient' sites were on grass, and I don't think they were full, so I'm not sure how we landed on that lousy site. The only thing I liked about the site was that it was shady.
The roads were in good shape, although navigating to our site was bizarre - we had to drive through the site from the side, then back in. It made sense once we saw it, but when they explained it to us in the office, we were scratching our heads. No major problem with the utilities or their location, other than the rainwater issue I mentioned above. We were in site #51 - on the map it looks parallel to the site behind it, but that's not how we were directed to use it - the front of our camper was facing toward the bathhouse.
The office was also a small grocery store/deli, more than the usual campground store affair. There are two lakes - I think you can swim in one and fish in the other. There was also an auction every Saturday night. We didn't try any of these. The wifi worked fine.
A golf cart hit our camper during our stay, so we talked to a lot more people than usual. Everyone we talked to, including the owners, were as nice and helpful as they could be. The owners got the name, address, and insurance information for us and had it ready when we came back to the campground after a day in Detroit and discovered the damage.
Note, all sites are 50 amp only. If you have a 30 amp camper, you need an adapter. They sell them at the store. - skater

This old campground is way overpriced. Yes, it is clean, but just a money grab. $45 per storage and the only option is to pay from the 1st to the end of the month with no discount for starting in the middle of month. Owner is old, rude, and a money grabber. What a shame she thinks everyone can afford the outrageous fees; sorry that is not for us. Good roads, all utilities work, close spaces, shaded camp sites. Dirt roads, clean restrooms and showers. General store onsite, with beer, wine, liquor and Lotto along with deli and pizza. Dump stations, swimming pool, fishing pond, golf driving range, and shelter for rent. Over priced: charged extra 10 buck's per night for kids and dogs. - ALPOE

Very nice & quiet campground. Rate was $42.00 (I think) with Good Sam discount. About 7ish miles from Hwy. 23. Easy roads & good signage. Most residents are seasonal. We had a large pull through spot with plenty of space around us. Nice size pond and children's playground. Office/gift shop has pizza, potato salad, other fresh foods, and a large amount of souvenirs during their open hours. - KateS

I am not really sure where the bad reviews are coming from. We stay here year after year and enjoy each stay. True, the road into the campground and the road in the campground are dirt but are well maintained and potholes are promptly patched with gravel. We saw many places in the campground that had been recently taken care of. The water does have an odor and if you are picky about your water I would bring plenty in. WIFI is said to be available throughout the camp, but we were not able to connect. It definitely needs to be upgraded. That covers any negatives. The staff there is very nice, very helpful and have always been pleasant to us. The beach is sandy and clean. The lake was fine to swim in with a sandy bottom. No evidence of any problems. The kids certainly enjoyed swimming and playing there. The playground was full of kids the whole time we were there, having a wonderful time. The restrooms are kept clean and the showers are some of the best we have experienced. The water pressure could be low if there were a lot of people showering. Cell phone coverage is fine for both AT& T and Verizon. Our site was large, fairly level and well maintained grass. There is a nice mix of shaded and sunny sites. We will definitely stay here again. - Meyer Camping

Awful place. The "crystal clear lake" they mention is horrible. Wouldn't swim in it on a bet. Water supply is contaminated with sulfur, so be sure have bottled water. Dirt/gravel road into campground and throughout. Wi-Fi weak and slow. Convenient overnight stop, but I'd check out other options. - macandphyl

Decent park with a nice sandy beach and pond. Couldn't access Wi-fi despite being only a short distance from the office. They do let outsiders in for swimming and gatherings. Gravel roads, but not much trouble maneuvering. Camp store offers some basic items. We'll probably stay here again. - WoodedOne
