This is a very small rustic campground located just off Hwy 2 outside of Rapid River with about 6 pull-through sites and fewer back-in sites next to a row of mobile homes. The campground has gravel roads, flat gravel pads, picnic table, fire ring, some trees between sites, mostly good Wi-Fi. The pull-through sites are long, spacious and relatively open so we could position our coach to get satellite access. They do not have a pool or much else but it's a decent place to stop overnight on your way the across the upper peninsula. I thought the $50 per night charge with no discounts was excessive for the quality of the campground. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

I would have given the park a better rating for value but I don't think there is enough here to make this park worth $50 per night for a full hook up. The pull thru full hook ups are ALL THE SAME; only difference is they have different site numbers, BUT if you are a big rig, you get charged a different rate for the same type of site as your neighbor has...so size DOES matter. Make sure you know that prior to coming to this park. Had it not been that it was 4th of July time frame, we would not have stayed here. Others were paying $34 per night for the same thing. The park is clean but it also a mobile home park and RR tracks RIGHT behind it (fortunately trains don't run but about 3 times in a 24 hour period). On the plus side, we asked if we stayed longer if there'd be a different rate. We were given the "monthly rate;" in other words we paid the difference between what we already paid and what the monthly rate is so we owed another $69. BUT then they charge you EXTRA for ELECTRIC; they come out and read the meter and then you pay for the electric you use when you checkout. So, overall, nice park, nice person, but price is ridiculous. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is really old mobile home park with about 10 RV sites. Right near road and hill so very noisy. Most RV sites are in the trees and hard to get satellite and no longer has cable. AT&T is off/on. It is very expensive for what you get. Is hard for big rigs-greater 40ft- to get out depending on where neighbors are parked. Site listed as bad since could not get satellite and no cable and overall rating reflects high price for not much of a site. Price listed reflects discount per owner who says he gives it to everyone. They do have fire rings and picnic tables and lot of flowers around the area. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Rapid River town is not very attractive and has little to do or places to eat. Can drive to Escanaba which has Walmart, restaurants etc.

We were going to stay for one night, but the owner made us feel so welcome that we stayed a few days. Yes the park is for sale, but it is being maintained. The living room a previous poster mentioned is actually a social room. The owner lives off-site. The utilities were good and many sites could get satellite TV. We would not hesitate to stay there again. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

An okay overnight or short stop but this is a campground in decline. The owner is very friendly but her husband passed away and now she is trying to sell the campground. She keeps it well manicured with flowers throughout. They have seven 100 foot-long pull thrus with FHU and easy in/out access plus 4 short back ins. There are also 9 mobile homes on site some of which are empty and for sale. Campground has strong Wi-Fi and cable TV. Road noise is a constant issue as trucks frequently jake brake down the small hill. It's better at night but never completely gone. Add in a couple of trains a day on the track that runs beside the campground. Nothing for kids beyond a horseshoe pit, small swing set, and basketball hoop. Verizon Wi-Fi was strong but ATT signal was weak. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

High points for the owner's friendliness, easy access, and cleanliness. Her office is a combination laundry room and living room. The bathrooms were clean, but I felt like I was intruding on her house when I walked in to use them. The water from the bathroom sink was hot, but the shower could only be adjusted to cold. About 50% seasonal. Nice pull thru nightly sites. Could have more potential and the grounds were all well kept and decorated nicely. The park is for sale.

Campground is clean and well-maintained. Has very easy access directly from US 2, which results in some road noise during the day, but it is not a problem because at night traffic on the main road is almost non-existent. Wi-Fi is strong and fast, and cable TV is strong with more than 70 channels. Pull through sites (6 or 7 of them) are level with good gravel and at least 70 ft long so they enable you to stay hooked up if towing. Certainly the best choice in the area if you are looking for a campground that has full hookups. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We Camped 2 nights at this RV park. The Restrooms and Showers were the cleanest we saw on our 12 day trip to Yellowstone and back. The WiFi was the best on our trip. We would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Overall this is a nice park. It is For Sale and seems to be suffering from some neglect, but things are pretty good. The WiFi was some of the fastest we saw on our trip. The road noise was bad in the late afternoon, but by early evening it was very light and sleeping was good. We would stay here again.

We stayed here twice this fall in a 45' RV on our way to and from Glacier National Park. It is a small, quaint and very well kept campground. It is family owned, and they go out of their way to greet you, make you feel comfortable, and make sure you're needs are served. We highly recommend it.

A very nice surprise. A phone call started my great experience, and my pleasure continued through my stay. This is a small park,. Yes, I heard one train, but this place was not only just what I needed after a long drive (good site, good electricity, good Wi-Fi, etc.), but it came with a very nice and personable hostess. I will stay here again. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

A pleasant surprise. An excellent stop if you are travelling across the UP. This is a very charming small park with gravel, pull through sites. The Wi-Fi is one of the best we have seen. Hostess and her staff are working constantly to keep the park looking very nice. We would stay here again if ever in the UP. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice little park. It is a little hard to turn into from the east and the access roads are a little tight for big rigs. The sites are nice and spacious. We got an FMCA discount so the rate was okay. The owner was very nice and accommodating. There were also a few mobile homes here but they presented no problems. Would stay here again.

We chose this park because the website advertised free cable TV. The website also indicated this park had high Good Sam ratings, so we assumed we would get the Good Sam discount. When we checked-in we were told there would be a $3.00 charge for cable TV and that they did not give the Good Sam discount because they were not members. When I questioned the manager about the information for free cable TV and the information about Good Sam that was on the web site: she became argumentive. This park is located between railroad tracks and a highway and is very noisy. The restrooms and showers were clean but in run-down condition. We camped at Whitefish Hill RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
