Very friendly. Stayed one night. Passport America rate. We enjoyed our stay and the people there. Nice pond and river trail. Would stay again. - toflake

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Wonderful hosts, welcoming, helpful and friendly. Real family camping at it's best. Large sites, grassy, everything well maintained. Big rig friendly, pet friendly. Tubing, kayaking in the Sturgeon River on site, volleyball and baseball area for the kids. Facilities very clean. No sewer hookups, but the owner will be at the dump station to help you out. Real country feel at this campground, the way real camping used to be. The owners gave us recommendations on things to see on our route home, which were fantastic. Loved it here, we will return. - BigD

This campground has reverted back to the original owners and is now called the Sturgeon VALLEY Campground. www.sturgeonvalleycampground.com The new owners are very nice, and are sad there's so much confusion about whether they're open or not. The grounds are beautiful, almost park-like: and the shady/grassy sites are the biggest I've ever seen in all my years of camping. We stayed here before and loved it. We'll come back again next year with our kayaking group, since the access to the Sturgeon River is so handy!! - Deb344

This is a good campground. The owners of the past two years have put effort and resources into upgrading sites, and sounded both proud of their campground, and dedicated to further improvements. We stayed here two nights as a stop between other destinations, in a 35 foot fifth wheel, in a "pull-trough" site that was recently improved to be more level. This is definitely a get-back-to-nature setting. Lots of woods, and reports of wildlife - though we didn't see any while there. No Wifi; no cable; poor cell phone reception; but if it's a woodsy experience you're looking for, this place is great. - Holden Awn

Our paddle group stayed here, and the very nice owner gave us a whole section to camp in. It appears that they did a lot of upgrading in the past few years; the sites are spacious and shaded (but not very level); the interior roads are gravel and smooth - but the 3/4 mi gravel public road leading to this park is "washboarded to the max". (Certainly not the RV Park's fault). To its credit - it's a wonderfully quiet place; we heard Loons calling in the distance as we sat around the campfire. The owner mentioned that the economy has been bad, and he might not have the park open past July. By all means, call to make sure this place is open before arriving! - Deb344

Gravel road to approach. A work in progress. Staff very friendly. Off the beaten path, but agreed to the Passport rate which made it easier to swallow. - mh32750

We had a great family weekend here with several other friends/campers. We had a generous site (#55) with water and electric. We had friends close by with electric and others in cabin. All had a fantastic time. We camped Memorial Weekend, so only a small portion of sites were in use. Made it really nice for the kids with the activities and time with the characters. Park was clean, bathrooms kept up. We'll plan a return trip later this summer. - asheffer

We had a wonderful time at this campground. So much for the kids to do at all times -but still a very laid back place to be. Our four year old talks about this park all the time and we're actually going again this weekend. Sites are a little tighter to get into now with our larger 5th wheel - but we managed. On-site travel trailers and cabins are also available. Our friends stayed in a cabin with their young son and liked it a lot. - family_5ers

We had a wonderful time at this campground. The staff was super friendly; some restrooms where clean but could use updating, however nothing to complain about by any means. I would recommend this park to anyone. - boracada

This is a beautiful state park. There are many shade trees and plenty of area to walk you dog. We camped here after Labor Day weekend so it was quiet. The lake appears to be clean and a good place to swim on a hot day. There are no sewers at the sites. It is a short drive to the Cross In The Woods Shrine. Also short drive into town for groceries, gas. Listed our site as 1 since I did not retain paperwork. Most of the campground is heavily shaded so if you want sun ask for a site near to the lake. - petpeople

This campground is very nice. The lake is warm and sandy and great for swimming. The sites along the water are perfect and there is a lot of grass to spread out. Some site are even paved. Be careful of the sites in the back row, as you leave the water sites the sites become very sandy and there is too much shade. I would return. - chipper1360

We loved this park. The utilities were great, the site was superb, the staff was friendly, and it was quiet. The park is off the beaten path but is convenient to Petosky and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. We will definitely choose this park again. You can't best the price for all they offer. - Tammy7

We agree with previous reviews, this IS a jewel place to stay. We requested an open site so we could receive satellite reception which we received. We backed up into the forest and were shaded by pines, aspens, maples, etc. Great site, good water and 50 amp electric. The only FHU sewer sites are the 5 pull-thrus across the street from us, but they had no shade. One bathhouse serves the entire park and was quite a ways from our site, #67. But this was no problem for us as we normally use our motor home facilities. We did "experience" the visitation of mosquitoes but that was to be expected. Pickerel Lake was very clear and clean, would be refreshing for a dip at the beach. The day use area is very inviting as are the several rustic cabins that are for rent. We plan to stop here again--. Thanks to Emmet County for the very nice facility! - gatordan

We have been in 46 states in the past 4 yrs and this is the most attractive and best maintained government-owned campground we've seen; plus, the $20 is the best value we've had. Wooded, spacious sites of which only 5 have full hook-up. We had reservations, but there is self-registration as you enter. Perhaps, the only less-than-optimal thing is the location. Great as a destination campground, but a bit out of the way for overnighting. We would stay here again. - judb

$41 a night for full hookups. Pay for 6 nights, got 7th night free. Sites were pull thru with two facing each other. Sites were a little tight. Pool was very nice. Many people had boats, and many of the sites are seasonal campers. - laredoct

Arrived the night before the park was closing for the season. We were having RV problems and the owners kindly allowed us to stay an extra night. They were very understanding and friendly.
The park grounds appeared well maintained, didn't use any of the facilities. We had no problem maneuvering our 40 ft RV through the park. - Tazi4cricket

We were on site #84 and it was very sandy with gravel drive through. The significant slope required us to use additional mats for leveling. We had excellent shade with well trimmed trees yet we were able to get satellite TV from our unit. There was excellent WiFi, power, water, fire rings, and sewer connections. However, the site was very tight with the unit next to us less than 5 feet away. We will return to this park. - Summer Minnesotan

We are on a 6 month journey across the US. We stayed only 2 nights of our 8 night stay. On the second day as we were making breakfast there were several people on our site. When we asked what they were doing, the Resort Person told us the site was for sale and he was showing it. No warning at all about this when we made the reservation or when we checked in. To top that, the Resort Person became aggressive with this language and told us if we didn't like it we could leave. Very, Very unprofessional.
The internet is a total joke, we were able to use it for one day before they started to slow our band width to a crawl. We were only checking email and searching the web, no streaming. Extremely disappointing for the amount we paid for this site.
Cable tv requires extra equipment to use. Frustrating.
Hearthside requires you to take you garbage to the dumpsters yourself. Even KOA picked up the garbage. Again for the price you are paying, this is very disappointing.
We have stayed at several high end RV Resorts. Although it is beautiful here at Hearthside, we had to cut our stay short because of the lack of privacy with the showings.
If you decided to stay here, make sure you get a site that is not for sale!! - Sarasota RV couple

Beautiful place. Huge concrete sites full of Prevosts and Newells, but they don't pick up the garbage and cable TV requires their special equipment.
Office staff is excellent. They are building out more sites so you will get a sales pitch or two. Owners here are not very friendly.
Probably worth staying here once, but we will stay someplace cheaper next time. - pcmike

I will keep this short, my family of five stayed here and we're treated wonderfully! Grounds were incredible. And service even better. They even loaned us a car to go into town. They helped with the fire pit, and the outdoor kitchen was ridiculous! It was immaculate! Thanks Hearthside Grove for the great family memories....that beats anything I could buy my kids! - K Petersen

High-end KOA with lavish landscaping, every conceivable facility, and activities for all ages, such as flashlight lollipop hunts. The high camping cost was figured to be the result of lack of supply, and demand for the last spot in town. At $80 a night, however, our site and the adjacent one had more dust and dirt than grass. Wi-Fi went in and out. Getting a satellite signal was tricky. Vehicle washing was permitted. Verizon service was good. - Mtmoi

Stayed for 5 nights - all level sites, paved roads and concrete pads, utilities in convenient locations for most RVs. Ample pull-throughs, cable TV. WiFi works great when you can get connected. Many WiFi zones scattered throughout park, you just have to be skookum and patient to connect (there is a very helpful 1-800 # you can call for assistance.) Great amenities, nice laundry (a bit expensive $2.25 per load). KOA cafe (pizzas, ice cream etc.), but we didn't use. KOA is very convenient to Petosky. Will say that Hwy. 31 is VERY busy with traffic, pick your entry and leave time carefully (no stoplight at exit). Negatives: the pool was not accessible to many guests 55+ because it was overrun by kids, including the hot tub where they are prohibited kids, but not enforced. We asked at the office how to kindly get to the hot tub and staff immediately went out to monitor, but acknowledged they couldn't control it. Unfortunate, because they can, just choose not to. Pool was small for size of park which includes large number of seasonal sites and many cabins. Most poorly managed was trash and recycling. We were not here on a holiday weekend, yet all trash containers and recycling cans were overflowing the entire time. We did see a trash truck come one Friday, but by the afternoon, one container was full again. Clearly do not dump trash and recycle enough to keep up with the size of the park.
May be typical for KOAs but this seems to be overrun by large extended family reunions with many (many) kids, bikes and dogs. This park is not for those looking for quiet, tranquil settings.
On the other hand, it is a nice KOA - probably better then many, and may be quieter on more on the shoulder seasons. - ErinandCorbin

This is our third year at this KOA and we are never disappointed in the quality or friendliness of the staff. They have added a couple of new outdoor games for the kids and some of the permanent sites are now gone which opened up some additional sites for transients. The park is immaculate and it is very central to many of the activities in Petoskey. It is also only 35-40 minutes from Mackinaw City. The only down side is that they have limited on site activities (like pancake breakfasts, bingo, or other events) - HP_Happy_Campers

Two campgrounds here. One was closed when we stayed there. There are 3-4 loops in the woods. Sites air fairly close together, but we've seen worse. We managed to get a spot down by the lake. Just a short hike over a dune and we were on the beach. Nice campground and this was our second stay. There is a bike path into town, which was a plus. - chris4499

Petoskey is a lovely state park by Little Traverse Bay. The sites are paved, semi-level, and small. The biggest problem is the difficulty of backing in with all the trees. Verizon cell works fine. MIFI does not work well barely pulling 3G. The area is spectacular including the beautiful drive on the Tunnel of Trees scenic byway. Would stay here again. - fulltimervtravel

Michigan State Parks are nice as any I've seen, but, their price policy is unfair. We were charges an $8 entrance fee just because we drove a motorhome and an additional fee for our tow vehicle, plus the overnight camping fee. BUT if we had driven a pickup truck towing the same length trailer we would have only been charge a entrance fee plus overnight fees, UNFAIR wake up Michigan you're driving tourist out of your state. - birdbrains

This campground has a great clean lake, Mullet Lake, with views from all sites and boaters can access the Michigan Inland Waterway right from the camp. Our group of 5 had sites back to back with good space between sites. Cheboygan, Mackinac, and Mackinaw Island are close for shopping and entertainment. Park is very friendly, clean, with mostly grass sites that are level. Wood is available at the office and a small store in next to the park with all other items including ice cream by the scoop. We come here every year. - dalenoel
