Nice medium-sized CG. Awesome Passport America price for location! We camped off-season and were the only campers in the place, so it was nice and quiet! A short walk from the campground, there is a tiny boat launch with a dock that extends into the bay, with a nice view of the water. Our stay was brief and we didn't use any of the facilities, but the grounds were clean, there was a trash can at our site, and we had plenty of room. We had FHU, but there was also a dump station on-site. Small camp store with firewood available. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was designed for fisherman. Resort is a kind representation for the place. It is run down and in need of some TLC. There is a rustic dock with Lake Michigan access and perhaps you could dock. Roads and sites are dirt. No wifi or tv supplied. Verizon cell service worked well. Satellite TV was difficult and looked to be impossible on many of the treed sites. No road noise or trains here! We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bring what you need this spot is a ways away from any decent shopping or services. There is a unique knife store about 4 miles away.

Although we had called ahead, we had no reservation. The first site offered required us to disconnect the tow. We chose another site where we could pull through. There was one electric box for each two sites and the box had a 30 amp and a 50 amp outlet. We connected to a further box that had an open 50 amp slot and no one was there. Other utilities were fine although the arrangement was not motorhome friendly. Sewer dump on the way out.

The buildings were in bad repair and there were several RVs in bad repair scattered about. it provided us what we were looking for, an inexpensive spot off the road with electric for the AC (it was hot and humid). We would not come here again, unless we were at the end of our drive time and no place else presented itself for a similar price. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet campground, not busy even on the weekend. Lake access with a pier, nice back roads to walk around, plenty of room for 40' motorhome plus slideouts. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Passport America membership. Campground had good signs to mark direction-3 miles off Hwy 2. This is campground is full of trees-so some of the sites could be very challenging getting into. However, we were able to get our truck and 5th wheel parked in our site and she told us to use the site beside us for extra parking. Sites are very close together-workable with some maneuvering. Campground is primarily dirt, gravel and trees. Sites are all very level. 30 and 50 amps available.
Campground has an access to Lake Michigan (for viewing, not for swimming).
Good Verizon coverage. We enjoyed going to the lighthouse about 15 miles up the road, easy access to Lake Michigan. It was a good overnight option. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Hardly know where to begin. The office roof is caving in....will probably be gone with next big storm. The park is old, dilapidated, trashy, unsecure, filthy. Has old campers around which are apparently abandoned. Setting is in the woods which should be pristine, but it is so depressing that we could not enjoy it. Felt like we were spending the night in a junk yard. Would not stay here again at any price. (BTW the posting that said there are new owners is apparently incorrect. The lady checking us in said they had owned it for 11 years.) Don't know what it was like before, but we saw no evidence of any improvements here for years. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Earlier reviews reflect a "little run-down". They have new owners now who are working hard at upgrading this place. It is located in forested area with access to the bay - very nice. The Internet was great! We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. Very quiet campground. Bathrooms are rather dated but appeared clean. Owner was very nice and helpful. Sites are shady. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a CampClub Rate. Did not care for this campground as it felt old and tired. It should not be called a resort. I would not stay here again. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Motorhome.

Owner friendly, that is about the only nice thing I can say. First of all their "office" is basically in the mudroom of their home and is dirty and cluttered. I called the night before to reserve and was given a confirmation number, she could not find our confirmation number but there were a ton of openings (surprise). We paid for our full service site and off we went to find it. It ended up being what is called "shared electric" which means basically first come fist serve for the 30amp hook up (the Escanaba area seemed full of these). So there was someone already plugged in to the electric so we could not unless we had a 50amp converter or a 20amp cord. Our site was right next to the dump station which was filthy there was broken glass all over our site, we had two fire rings both trashed, the playground was full of broken toys. The "walk" down to the water looked very steep. Well after we were here trying to figure out the power thing for a good 30 minutes, we packed up our stuff and left. Could not handle it anymore. She was nice enough to give us our money back. With a super good clean up and some organization and better electrical hook up, might not be too bad. For us though: Bad! We Did Not Stay In This Park. We camped at Vagabond Resort in a Tent Trailer.
