This place is a dump. Not maintained at all. Full-time campers have trashy sites. No kidding when I say this, FT camper was sitting outside his camper in his underwear, his wife in shorts and just a bra drinking PBR. Tried to get hold of management but they never answered the phone for 3 days. Grass had not been mowed in a couple of weeks, tree limbs everywhere, their so-called pavilion had 4 ft holes in the roof. Hard to tell where sites were because the lots were grown over by grass. When I asked about a picnic table they said go find one. Same with a fire ring. They made their web page look so great, but the place is a DUMP. Was so not worth the drive way out there. Go somewhere else, unless you like Deliverance type of a setting, just listen for the banjo music. Seriously. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were camping with a group of 4 campers and all booked together. When we arrived they had not kept us together. The reservation does say site #s not guaranteed but they could have tried to keep us together. There was no picnic table at our site when we arrived. We were told picnic tables and fire rings are first come first serve we would have to go find one ourselves. Had to go to the rustic side and load a table into the truck to move it to our site. Site had piles of nails around where fire pits had been moved after burning wood with nails. We ended up with a nail in our tire. Nice large pool but most of it is under 3 feet deep with one small corner being 3 ft 8 inches. Nice for little kids but not for our teenagers. Extremely rude people who cut through our site continuously to get to the pool, but the way the pool and playground are situated you almost have to cut through a site to get to them. Bath house is very old. Toilet seats broken, shower that doesn't work but not marked out of order so you don't know it doesn't work until you are in it trying to use it. When mentioned to the staff that the water won't turn on were told they shut the water off to that one its broken. Some kind of party going on at one of the picnic shelters until after midnight playing loud music - quiet time definitely not enforced. The only good thing I can say about this campground is they did let us do a late checkout since we were there for a softball tournament in the area and had a game after normal checkout time. Will not return and would not recommend. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you are the adventurous type and want to save $20 a day, this campground is for you. Coming from the North, you exit off I-71 onto I-270, then onto US-33, then south on Gender Rd, then south on Lithopolis Rd through the town of Lithopolis, then down Cedar Hill Rd (a 2-lane, no shoulder black top) and finally right at the yellow Jackson Lake sign. I say all this to make the point that this is not easy to find. A good GPS would really help. The pot holed entrance road is sometimes old asphalt, sometimes gravel and sometimes dirt. Watch for the low hanging tree branches. They claim to be big rig friendly, but I would say big rig possible instead. Past all this you come to a very large open area with shelters, pavilions and numerous full time residents in unit s in fair repair. Eventually the road turns to dirt and you pull onto a grass pad. We put our jacks to work to get things level. A Winnebago Vectra pulled in next to us. You have to stand on your head and reach down 18 inches into a hole to connect your water hose. 50 amps is available. Water pressure was 40 PSI and our SurgeGuard had no faults indicated. The sewer cap is not threaded. There is no Cable TV. My antenna picked up the following digital channels; 6.1, ABC; 6.2, THIS; 10.1, CBS; 10.2, Local Weather; and; 28.1, Fox. There is trash pick up. Verizon cellular is 4 out of 5 bars. WiFi is available from the Nexu Mesh Network for $3 a day. Sign up and credit card are required. We would look around before staying here again. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Motorhome.

My review is exactly the same as the other review for Sept 2012 on this Campground. Another Big Rig and I stayed here for 3 weeks, and we had the best time there. The firewood was a little over priced, but the maintenance man and staff were the best. The older lady staff person, not so much. Virgin Mobil phone service was fair and good enough to tether off of. We we really enjoyed the stay and would not shop for another park in the area. I will return. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Motorhome.

We just spent a weekend at this campground. The pool was very nice for our family and the fishing at the lake was amazing. My 7 year old caught 4 fish within 15 minutes> He was so excited. The campground has a lot of seasonal campers. Some of those sites were really well kept while others not so much. There was a family movie outside one night and planned activities during the day for the kids. I talked to a few campers who are regulars who informed me the park is under new management within the last year and has had lots of improvements with more to come. There is also a nice Frisbee golf course that we used. They had some basketball hoops which all need some renovating . The staff that I talked to were all very nice and helpful with anything we needed . There is also a nice small playground that my kids enjoyed. Overall this is nice campground that we would return to. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Tent Trailer.

We have stayed here for years and the improvements this year with the new management is immediately evident. It was clean and had lots of newly remodeled facilities, particularly the bathrooms. We had a great time fishing as always. Kids had a blast with the karaoke and crafts. We all enjoyed the outdoor movie. I can't wait to go back memorial day weekend when the disc golf course and new playground is suppose to be in. I'm very happy we gave this place a second chance.

This is not a destination campground. This campground has great potential, but falls short. They've spent a lot of money on a new pool which will be nice one day. There are many permanent campers located here. Sites that are available cannot be identified readily. The bath houses are simply horrible. Mold, mildew, and an awful smell makes it near impossible to use. Armed with a can of Lysol, I was able to finally take a shower. Until they decide to give this campground some TLC, I would choose another destination. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great place. Great people. One of the most enjoyable parks I have ever stayed in. Having to leave there was almost as hard as leaving home. A little town is close with an IGA grocery. There are about 15 businesses in nearby Lithopolis. I go back as often as I can. We camped at Jackson Lake Campground & Park in a Travel Trailer.
