Traverse Bay is a lovely park with nicely manicured facilities and flowers throughout. The internal roads are asphalt and wide while sites are concrete and large making navigation around the park and into sites easy for even the largest of rigs. The park has a section that is class A only and a section for Class A and Fifth wheels, both of which are beautiful. The park is located close to Traverse City making it easy to take advantage of everything offered there. Wifi was pretty good, it would get a bit slow at certain times of the day but mostly good. Cable offered many channels although it was not HD. We would certainly return here if we were in the area. The wash facilities were very nice. We were in the park after Labor Day so they had closed the pool and hot tub and there were no social activities to planned. I felt the price was a little high given not all the amenities were available. - LvR

A nicely wooded campground located on Elk Lake. A select group of sites have good views of the lake. Management is friendly. Clean bathrooms and showers. - G.V. Brown

Park is located on a very pretty lake but you must travel .9 miles down a poorly maintained gravel road to get here. The campground is located within the park such that few sites have a view of the lake. Gravel roads within the campground displayed erosion problems. Restrooms were clean and neat. There is a place to fill your fresh water tank and a dump station. Staff is friendly and polite. However, due to the condition of the road(s) and the fact that there is nothing particularly appealing about this campground, we would not stay here again. - gokart2

No water and no sewer make it hard to consider this for more than overnight. The owner did say he can arrange tank drainage if you stay longer. No WiFi is another negative. We would stay again for overnight. - Don E

This is a small quiet campground with water and electric. You don't have some of the amenities in other campgrounds that some folks might be interested in such as store, pool, etc. but, they have the BEST Wifi we've had in almost any campground. We actually prefer a place that doesn't have so many amenities that we would never use. Our price reflects Passport rate. Owner very friendly. We loved it! - Legends Of America

The nightly rate reflects the PA price. We had a beautiful shaded site, so level that we did not have to even put our jacks down! The small creek directly behind us sounded great as it flowed over large rocks. We had a fire ring and the owner provided a generous amount of firewood for a reasonable price. Our site had both water and 50 amp electric. The water delivery system is a little unusual but the taste and pressure were fine. There is no sewer or dump station, but we were told there was a local pump-out service ($) if we wanted to stay for an extended time. The owners were very nice and I think the low tolerance for alcohol has more to do with behavior than consumption. This will be our 1st choice for a campground if we return to the area. - Lee and Jacque

We almost passed on this park because of other reviewer's comments but I'm so glad we didn't. Contrary to what others have reported, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The park was very full but it was so quiet we overslept one morning. We don't have kids but there appeared to be many kid-friendly activities. Sites were level, hookups worked well and we even had a concrete patio. I would not hesitate to stay here again. - Wind blows

Rate reflects average cost with PA discount and non-discount days. Registration was fast. Had very little interaction with camp staff after that. Big park with a lot of sites. Loop road is new asphalt. Outer loop road appears to be oil covered gravel. Inner roads are gravel. Not all fhu sites include cable, so if you want cable, be sure to ask. Not sure if cable is available with PA rate. Water pressure was about 42 psi until the weekend when more campers arrived, then the pressure dropped to about 30 psi. Wifi was adequate for email and Facebook. Lots of trees that may interfere with satellite. Not everyone follows the dog leash rules or the 10 mph speed limit. No fenced dog area despite what the park map shows. Nice mountain bike skills park. Lots of walking/biking/atv trails just off the park grounds. Would stay here again if in the area. - TH travelers

This was the biggest mistake we made in our travel across the country this spring/summer. Great ratings from Good Sam but what a disappointment. The staff was not friendly and acted as if they couldn't be bothered trying to help. The sites were dry, dusty dirt and mostly uneven. Apparently no rules with speeding golf carts, which were staff driven, which constantly created a dust storm. We actually forfeited our two week reservation and moved to another nearby resort. The final straw was when the park used a motorized blower to clean the "dirt roads" of debris which created a complete mess. Don't stay here! There were Class A, B, C and tents intermingled throughout the park. People hanging towel and laundry on lines they attached to trees. Horrible place. - Lardan

This state park has more space than most when looking at width of sites. The length / depth is a bit short. The roads are very narrow and larger units have a hard time.
They had one new shower house / bathroom building, which was nice. The older buildings are run down.
They have nice fire rings. - daa10496

The "value" totally depends on what site you get. Be prepared to need or bring an extension for your electrical cord. The first site we booked was 21. The electrical boxes were way too far from our RV hookup, no matter what we tried. The campground had 2 extension cords but they had already been lent out. The ranger called Home Depot and found one for us but it was $50! Thankfully, the ranger moved us to another site where we had to park our RV on an angle to reach our cord but it worked. The site was unlevel, but not a problem for our hydraulic jacks. The awning couldn't come all the way out. The interior roads can be a little tight but as long as everyone parked their vehicles off of the interior road then you should be OK. The bike trail was awesome! We enjoyed riding to Moomer's ice cream at east bay pizza and riding our bikes to downtown Traverse. There is a pedestrian overpass to walk to the beach. We didn't see the playground, but there are playgrounds off of the bike trail, including a great one at the pizza place. The site was tough at first, but once we were in our site this turned out GREAT! - Yellow Submarine

The location of this park is extraordinary, right across the road from a wonderful beach on Lake Michigan, with a pedestrian overpass access directly from the campground. Also available was a large parking area, just a quick drive across the road from the campground. The campground itself left some things to be desired, but had some good things going for it as well. First of all, it is a very busy campground with a lot of people walking all over the place to get to and from the beach. It is brimming over with kids in the interior roads riding bikes, skateboards, scooters, you name it. The bathrooms were full of sand and toilet paper on the floors, unflushed toilets, etc. all hours of every day. The showers were individual lockable showers, moldy, dark. There were only two bath and shower houses for 400 some-odd sites, making a long walk for some. They were busy all the time. The fire rings were big and wonderful for those summer nights after the wind died down for a great campfire. Camp neighbors were pretty nice, lots of tents and trailers, fewer motor homes. The utility pedestals were shared by 4 sites and poorly located, making things a little confusing, given the odd layout of some of the sites. Traverse City itself was wonderful, and the beach at the park was irresistible. It had a very large swimming area, waves were manageable, water was warm. The dump area was awkward since it was right on one of the loop roads, and rigs lined up 3-4 deep every morning before checkout, some blocking the roads. - MissMyGolden

Seasonal campground. Back in site with gravel and cement strip, table and fire ring. Our site was next to the garbage and had a big tree. We really couldn't sit outside because of this. Full hook up, back in, cable, playground, bath and laundry. On lake so lots of boats on property. Wouldn't go back. But would find another campground in the area. - jcpjane

The campground says it's on Cairn Highway, but it's called Ames Street too. There are a lot of permanents, but no problem there. Nice level site with a concrete patio. Good place to stay to explore Traverse City and environs. We needed an oil change for our rig and found a great place to do business. I recommend Uncle Rod's - 231-264-6070 -in Elk Rapids. We find it difficult sometimes to get an oil change for our 30 foot motorhome, so if this helps someone, that's great. They were very accommodating. We had called an RV place in Traverse City and they wanted way too much money. - har-fl

We stayed for six nights at this campground. It is a medium size campground with about 2/3 of the sites taken up with seasonal lease campers. There are two sections: an older one and a newer one. The sites in the older section are smaller, but generally have more shade. The sites in the newer (north) section are larger, but with few trees and many trees that are there have died. All sites have a concrete patio, which is nice. While the campground is on a small lake, there are no lake sites available to overnight campers. Lake access is pretty limited. There is no real camp store, but the campground is relatively close to town – we rode our bikes there several times. Campground roads are gravel and can be dusty. Main bathhouse is a “trailer” type unit with several private bathrooms. While generally clean they could have been maintained better (example: wastebasket never emptied during stay) and better ventilated (always hot and stuffy). The Wi-Fi reception and speed usually pretty good for public Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. - RXA-ADM

This park is hard to rate as it is still under development as a true RV resort. A community center and pool are under construction. This is an Owner type park, but many sites are available for rent. The park currently has 22 sites, all sites fully paved (concrete) including patios. Grounds are very nicely landscaped and maintained, and all interior roads are also fully paved. There is a railroad track to the west of the park, but we only heard two trains during our 3 day stay and both were during the daytime so not an issue. Park accepts cash or check only. The park does include wi-fi. Though cable TV is not yet available there are many stations available off the air. Good Verizon and AT&T cell service are also available. This is by far the best RV park in the area outside of Traverse City, though it is at least 30 miles away. Kalkaska is only about 8 miles straight north with good grocery and fuel stops. This was our first visit to this park, but it will certainly be our park of choice on future visits to this area. - Johnson's

Pros: As stated in earlier reviews, this is an older park. The grounds are quite nice with good walking trails. Very dog friendly! The WiFi was the best I've seen. In our site the water pressure was acceptable and the sewer port was accessable. Cons: The site we were given was so out of level we felt like cliff dwellers. The electric service was terrible. Voltage down to 103 VAC at times. When we asked for a different site, we were told that none were available. This however turned out not to be the case. They did send their electrician who concluded that nothing could be done about the low voltage. We feared for the health of our air conditioning all night. We will not return.
Don't register on-line! You lose your Good Sam discount. - Airstreamers

Park is an older park with great ambience. The pool looks to be clean but we didn't use it. All gravel roads with a nice hiking trail at the rear of the park. We walked each day, exploring the loop. Our site was fairly level but some are not near level, so be prepared with wood or blocks. The water pressure was terribly inconsistent. At one point I told my wife it was the best we had experienced, but later that night it was down to a trickle. The services on some sites are poorly laid out requiring long extensions to sewer, water, and/or electric depending how you want to be positioned on the site. - OurNextStage

Camp Club USA member campground. This campground is not very well kept. It's a little difficult to maneuver a large motor home through the campground. The location is not very convenient. - Harpo2

Rate is based on weekly rate but they do give Good Sam discounts. Wide, paved interior roads. Fairly level gravel sites. Picnic tables and fire ring in grassy area. Wifi was sporadic. I used our ATT hotspot for other internet activity that took longer than just checking email. Good cable. Very well maintained, beautiful park. There are numerous playgrounds scattered around for the kids. We didn't go down to the beach area but there is a swimming area and boat launch. We would definitely stay here again. - dickens

Sites are reasonably spaced and have gravel pads with paved interior roads. Most of gravel around the RV and picnic table with some grass and landscaping for nearly all sites. Wifi is poor to unusable in the campground but works well if you go to the office area. Hookups are well placed and easy to use. This is a very large park with many monthly users and some have purchased memberships. It is very busy and weekends need a reservation. There is no pool but some swimming in the lake. Lake front lots are available but expensive as they cost extra. Laundry room was available but we didn't use it. - RV Camper1

The park itself was very clean. Unfortunately, the restrooms were not that clean. We stayed in the newest part, without shade. During the day, that was very hot, but after sunrise, the wind made it far much better than in the woods. We had a spacious place with a big fire ring. We did not hear any noise from the highway at all. The WiFi was very unstable, especially in the evening, we were not able to read e-mail anymore.
Nearby the picnic shelter was a BBQ situated, which we used to cook on.
The campstore has everything one needs when he forgot something.
The Silver Lake is beautiful. - Bisan
