Passport America rate. As reviewed before, this is a dated mobile home / trailer park with RV sites. Lots of older units, so it is not the best looking place we been too. Interior roads are on the poor side, but are hard packed gravel. After a day of rain during our stay, I could not see where one could get stuck. We found people here to be friendly and helpful. We were in a nice level roomy grass pull-through site with 50 amp electric and water with a picnic table and fire ring. The electric looks like it has been updated at some point as it was a newer style pedestal. The Wi-Fi was very good during our stay. TV via batwing was good with a limited number of stations. We enjoyed our stay and would come again. We camped at Tawas River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Taking a right out of the park will bring you right into downtown East Tawas City. Several good choices for eating or a cold one.

Terrible park! Mostly a mobile home park with a few sites for short term stays. We arrived on a Monday and that happened to be the mgrs. day off. So office was closed with a sign on door to call her and she would come down to the office. Not very happy about having to do so but we did have a reservation so she should have known that we were coming in! Bad roads with large, pond size potholes full of water. Only redeeming feature was meeting a lovely couple from Canada who we spent the evening with. We would not stay here again. We camped at Tawas River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were very disappointed in this park. The pictures on the website are very deceiving. This is a very trashy looking place. We didn't even stay the night so cannot comment on any of the facilities. We were given a "pull through" site, however it was still at a 90* angle. The roads are extremely narrow. So if you have a 40 ft rv like we do, good luck getting in and out. When we made the turn into the park, we decided almost immediately we were not staying. Trash everywhere, people whose sites looked like junkyards, sketchy character in saggy pants lurking around watching us, dirty river, etc. When we tried to figure out a way to pull out, we actually got stuck in mud. (It hadn't rained in days) We actually had to use a chain hooked up between my Ford E350 passenger van and my husband's Dodge Ram 3500 to tow him and the rv out of the mud. We hightailed it out of there and went to a much nicer place in the next town over. We camped at Tawas River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a converted mobile home park with many long term RVs in it. We had a pull-through with 50 amp which was level and free of any obstructions. The roads are narrow and you must pay attention to the many pot holes and mud holes. The three days we were there, a girls' softball tournament was going on and the two sites next to us had 3 tents and a pop-up with young girls that played loud music and laughed and screamed until well after midnight. A DJ was also playing until about 11:00 PM, so getting any sleep was very difficult. Park is a little run down and needs some attention to roads and they need to enforce the quiet times better. Rate is for Passport America. We camped at Tawas River RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had such a nice stay here. The people who run this park were terrific. Everything was so quiet and comfortable here! We really enjoyed having access to the Tawas River. It was a great place to go canoeing (we launched the boat right from within the park). It's really conveniently located and we spent a lot of time exploring the area and enjoyed the proximity to Lake Huron. We'll definitely be back. We camped at Tawas River RV Park in a Motorhome.
