Very nice RV Resort. Great family park. Lots for kids to do. Good everything - pool, playground, utilities, paved roads and sites. In some parts of the resort trees were planted close to the road and now have grown to the point that backing into a site can be a challenge. A few pull-through sites are newly available. The Good Sam discount is now gone, as is daily garbage pick-up. Sites are not overly big so parking at the site can be an issue for bigger RVs. Some campers park in the lot near the Welcome Center and walk to their site. Lots of modified golf carts that travel at speeds well over the posted limits so kids and at times adults need to be careful. We have stayed here several times in the past and will return. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, full service, family friendly campground resort. It is geared for mostly large travel trailers, motor homes and permanent seasonal use. Our 23 foot AS was one of the smaller rigs! If you want any imaginable amenity, with not so much privacy, this is your destination! Apparently ownership has recently changed, in the last 2 years. Check in staff a little disinterested, but may have been anecdotal...Make sure not to check in before 3pm or out after 1pm, or you will be charged $5 for each 2 hours early or 2 hours late. Lots of planned activities for families/movie nights with popcorn at the clubhouse. Great store, marina, fishing available, very clean and nice bathhouses. A winner for families! Not for the outdoor, hiking enthusiast... We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a nice week here in a 43 ft RV. Our overall experience was excellent. River Ridge is among the nicest landscaped RV parks we have ever stayed in. Resort staff were very friendly and service orientated. Clubhouse, pool and restroom facilities were well above average. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed as part of an FMCA Rally with the Blue Water RVers. The park is the one of the best we have camped in. It is clean from top to bottom and everyone is nice to talk too. The restaurant is well stocked as is the store. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Excellent place to stay. Spic and Span clean. Spotless really. Beautifully manicured grounds. Great clubhouse and pool facilities. Shower and bathroom facilities at clubhouse were amazingly clean and well maintained. Multiple curtains for showers and stalls, with ample bench room and plenty of places to hang kit bags, towels and clothes. Lockers are provided in the clubhouse locker room as well, so you have a place to put your stuff when using the pool as well. Nice camp store with grill to order sandwiches and such. Store was like a small party store with a good selection of beverages and snacks. Staff at this store/grill was very friendly. Beautifully situated on the Muskegon River with a really nice marina facility. Campground is above the river on high ground. Pool overlooks the river and the entire setting is just beautiful. All the lots had a really nice cement pad, in-ground cement fire pit, and each site had it's own landscaping making it feel like you were home. It really felt like a sub-division for RV's. Nothing rustic about this place. Top notch higher end facility. Very family friendly, with a wonderful playground facility for the kids. I will return with my family again, and suggest you try it. Some issues that I encountered on my visit were as follows; 1- It would be nice to have access to the laundry facility during later hours or perhaps with coded pass keys to allow you entry anytime you needed. 2- I was not overly impressed with some of the desk staff on our arrival. While there was a cheery young lady on duty, her smile and attempt to greet us was mitigated by the fact that another woman who actually handled our reservation was a real sour puss and we were very put off by her. Our impression was she was in charge and to be honest she had an attitude as though we should be thankful to be staying there. Could have been an off night, but my wife encountered the same woman on the phone when booking our reservation and her attitude was the same two weeks prior to our arrival. I certainly wouldn't let that dampen your enthusiasm for staying here, but am pointing it out in case anyone from River Ridge reads this review. Lastly, the real disappointment during our stay, was that we could not rent personal watercraft (jet-skis), or pontoon boats. The web site and printed literature both indicated this was possible and posted rates. Also, a roadside sign/billboard advertising the place also stated this. We were told that they no longer rent these out. Disappointing since we planned on it and we happened to be staying there during 90+ degree weather. With the RV park being on the Muskegon River and with it's own marina, it would have been nice to enjoy the water like that. Other than these pretty minor issues, I would say that this will be on my roster of places to return to time and again. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Great resort for a short or long stay. The resort is on the Muskegon river and boating is easily available. There's not much that a camper would want that is not available. The resort is open to most types of motor homes, 5th wheels and trailer but no tents or pop-ups. Stanwood is a rural area so there is not much else close by. There is golf, some shopping and a few places to eat within 10 miles. This resort is well worth a stay. Some people stay the whole summer. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

River Ridge Resort is a great RV park. It is well maintained and manicured. It is very quiet and family friendly. The staff is also very helpful and friendly, too. We have a three year old and find the playground and grassy area perfect for him. The camp store has everything and more that you will need. The pool is nice but, our only complaint is that there is not a hot tub. For the volume of people there, a second pool or an indoor pool may be a good idea. If you have a boat, this is a great place to go boating. The only other drawback is that you are quite a ways away from things to do or stores. While the campstore is huge and the park has a lot of activities, rainy days can be hard because you are far from the nearest town. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This campground needs a overhauling We camped here for a couple months. We were harassed by security every time we had guest over or over stupid stuff and they would harass our guest too! The manager is full of baloney, never keeps his word! My opinion,should be fired! He is a BS'er! We would loose water pressure every time we needed it, at least twice a day! Poor "cable TV" quality,which is satellite! Internet service was terrible and costly, way slow..When you can even get it and only one user! Campground has much potential,the price only includes cosmetics of the park and behind the scenes high school drama that we can do without on vacation! The campers are a great crowd and greatly to have met them. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed at this park before. During this stay we were in the older part of the park and the cable tV was not operating correctly. The electric supply was not impressive, we kept blowing breakers in our unit and this has never happened at another campground. The park was noisy, and the staff apparently does not enforce the quiet hours. The water supply was very good. Hookups are at the back of the site, and the sites can be difficult to back into. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great RV park. Site was level and wide enough for our car, 40' motorhome, fire pit and picnic table to be on concrete. Water pressure was really good. Sites are fully landscaped with flowers, shrubs and grass everywhere else. Pool was large and immaculate. This RV park was the best we have stayed at in our year of fulltiming. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one weekday night and had a FHU back-in site with 40+ channel cable TV. We were able to get Wi-Fi ($3/day) at our site. This is a fairly large, newer RV resort and marina. All sites appear to be gravel back-ins and most are FHU (about 60 are W&E). Most sites are very open and thus very satellite friendly. The only problem I had with the sites was the rear of site hook-ups. We were barely able to reach the electric, water, and cable with our 25' cord, hose, and cable. There are plenty of amenities: great pool and lodge, tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, a playground, cafe/store, and the marina. This is definitely a destination RV park. Gravel sites, pay Wi-Fi, and rear of site hook-ups hold the rating down a bit. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice RV Resort, but came up a little short of my expectations based on similar resorts not all that far away. The GOOD - Fully Landscaped, security roams, large kid friendly pool with adult hours, fantastic store on Muskegon River with pontoon and yearly boat slips rentals. Themed weekends for some entertainment. Family friendly. Golf Carts allowed (and there are plenty). THE BAD - 1) No place to park RV while checking in! Lot was full of "extra" vehicles. Not a good 1st impression. I blocked the entire parking lot. 2) Our concrete pad was un-level. In fact, many looked to be un-level after we looked around the next day. I didn't bring blocks because I figured every place I've been to at this price point has been level. Even if I had, we came in at 9:30pm, unhooked by 10pm before we noticed. Last thing I wanted to do, and neighbors too no doubt, was hook back up to level us. Really no excuse for that. 3) Hook ups at rear of coach and buried in creeping myrtle(?!). Make sure your cords are long enough. We BARELY made it on our 50amp cord. Water hooks up a little rickety, but works fine. 4) WiFi has a cost. The other resorts I've been to are free. At $50 a night (no coupons)...it should be free. Nee to get with the times and loose that dated policy for sure. 5) Check out was 1pm. A tad early considering 3pm check in, and they told us most folks check in around 8-9pm. Other parks are 2pm with same check in times. Not the end of the world. You can pay to stay longer if site is available. Ours wasn't. 5) A sticking point for me was simply the pool. Nice clean pool. Kids loved it. Family loved it. Adult hours are a great idea. However, on a special weekend like "Wet and Wild" designed around kids activities and getting wet all weekend (park was packed with kids btw), they should think about waving that policy for that particular weekend. At closing, the pool went from very busy, to virtually empty. Everyone had kids! Tons of bummed parents. Would I stay again? Probably, but considering Wet and Wild wasn't as special as other places we've been, I'm not sure we'd opt for it relative to a place just south of here. It has the same price, just as pretty, better themes, level pads, and seems a tad more polished overall. If you own a water toy though, this is the place for sure. Store is a wickedly well done idea and they're bottom line ($$) I understand shows it. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a gorgeous park and it is our favorite to date in the three years we have been traveling. It is immaculate and nicely landscaped. The showers, laundry, pool and other amenities are tops. The manager goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you want or need. We have no complaints about this park at all. It is a perfect vacation destination as they have everything close by including a marina. We would definitely return. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

This was our second time staying here. It was better than ever. The only complaint I'd have is there are no pull-thru sites and the electrical hook-ups are to the back of the pad with bushes. So if you have a toy hauler, it's very difficult to get your toys out without doing it before you back in and unhook. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Only two more things they need here: a few trees and a beach on Muskegon river. This campground is VERY VERY clean, the grass cut, the managers are very nice. It's located on 12 miles of Muskegon river. Great boating fun, and fishing (recommend fishing in the early morning or weekdays.) Bring your 40 foot boat, its big enough. The campground is security locked: not just anyone can go where you camp (thats nice). WiFi could use some updating for sure! Other than that, was well worth the cost to stay here!
