We stayed on the 4th week. Full of sand vehicles (Rev engines), beer drinkers, camp site was overrun and the facilities were terrible. Camper next to use put their extra tent on half our camp site. Fire ring was rusted in half. People would not stop walking through our site. Dogs barking that went on for a long time. Dogs doing their business on other campers sites. We did not stay more than one night and went home. Worse experience I have ever had camping. Should have been a family friendly campsite and it was full of motor heads that wanted to party. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very large, kid friendly park with over 200 sites and lots of mature shade trees. Unfortunately, the roadways are all one way and narrow. We had a back in site, and it was impossible for us to back in the camper. Someone who was more experienced helped us back in or it would have taken forever, and when one person is backing in, the roadway is blocked so no one can pass. They do not pick up your trash. You have to walk it to a dumpster. We played several games of pool in the recreation area at $.75 per game, but only one cue had a felt tip (all the others had fallen off). There was no bridge, no rack, and the light over the pool table was burned out. The pool was heated and we used it a couple of times. They claim that quiet hours are strictly enforced. THEY ARE NOT. We were near some very loud and inconsiderate neighbors. They continued on well past the start of quiet hours and they were never asked to turn the noise down. The park is really close to the dunes and the beach (literally a 10 minute walk), and it is ORV friendly. Unfortunately, that means that many people bring their noisy ORVs to the park. Even though they are prohibited from gunning their engines, and I don't think many people did, they are still loud when driving down the narrow roads. The wifi is really bad (probably the worst that we've experienced). This was really a problem for us because my husband had work to do and we weren't able to do anything on the internet after I exhausted my roaming data. I asked the staff about it and was told that's just how it is in the area and there was no premium wifi to purchase, but I noticed a distinctive speed increase after the park started emptying out on Sunday, so I think they don't have enough capacity for the number of people using it. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is a great place right next store to the campground that has shops, a restaurant, go karts, mini golf, a zip line, ice cream and fudge. Lots of fun!

Pricey area, lots of activities for kids, game rooms heated pool, paved roads. For the price would think the gravel for the sites would be in better shape needs to be filled in. Fire pit would be nice to have a grill and level, one side of the pit was buried in 3 inches of mud. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were here for the 4th of July weekend and we loved it. The park was very busy, with lots of "toys" coming in and out to go to the Silver Lake Dunes, but the quiet hours were strictly enforced and we didn't have any trouble with loud noise in the night. This park is clean, the staff is very friendly, and the pool is great. The sites we stayed on were large and shaded, with lots of trees and easy access to the hydro/ water. The roads are well maintained. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Tent Trailer.

Overall clean, friendly park. For the price you pay though, the activities are limited and not very good and the shower room in the front located off the main store only has one shower in it. Definitely not enough for a large campground like this one. Its also very busy here and loud. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you are going to Silver Lake and have children this is the campground for you. We stayed 6 nights and I could have spent at least another week at this campground. They have planned activities every half hour during the day. The pool at the campground is large and clean. I always had a nice lounge chair to relax in. It is a beautiful area with plenty of things to do. There is not to much right in Silver Lake but Iudington is only a half hour away and Pentwater is only 11 miles. The dunes are fun and plenty of beautiful beaches in the area. I wanted to stay a couple of extra days and the staff went out of their way to make it happen for me. I know you will not be disappointed with this campground. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a family oriented CG. Lots of activities for children. Our site was not level. I used 3 1/2 inches of leveling blocks under the front tires and it still wasn't level. Lots of trees, gives you that rustic feel. Nice camp store with ample supplies. Good size pool with a separate kiddie pool. We would stay there again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.

If you have kids and are visiting the Silver Lake Sand Dunes and Lake Michigan this is the best campground. So much for the kids to do. Great swimming pool, kids activities, basketball, shuffleboard, great playground. If you don't have kids and want a peaceful and none Sandy campground trip, I would advise this campground is probably not for you. The showers and bathrooms were very clean as was all the public areas. We are coming back next year and we are going the for the concrete pad, as there is not much grass but a lot of sand that can easily get into your camper. The WI-FI is only available in the campground lounge/store area ( a bit misleading). The staff was extremely friendly. This campground is within walking distance of Silver Lake, Craigs Cruisers (go-kart track and arcade), a Bakery, and little shops. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time camping as a family. I must say we had high expectations, but even after camping at different places I still think that Jellystone fell short in a few areas. First there was only one swing for our 13 month old. This was hard since there was a line of people trying to use it on Memorial Day weekend. The other major disappointment was how dirty it was. I realize that because there are a lot of trees that grass doesn't grow as well, but there was hardly any grass, and our son wanted to play in the dirt. During the weekend there was a lot of theft. They had 2 pages filled with stolen items. We only had a pack of cigarettes stolen from the picnic table, probably due to a 100lbs rottweiler barking from in the camper. They blamed it on locals. (I am a local and I think it was people in the park.) During the night they had to talk to a group of younger campers multiple times about being quiet and not swearing. They also were talking about stealing coolers and driving drunk around this 1 cop town. (I was hoping they would; there are city, county, and state cops in this little resort town. They would have been nabbed in minutes). We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.
