I am a Coast to Coast member. When checking in I asked for a site with a clear view of the southern sky for the satellite TV antenna on the motor home. There are some such sites which were vacant during our stay. I was told that the location of my site was non-negotiable. There were only two off the air TV stations. There was too much tree canopy to get a satellite TV signal from my tripod antenna. The sites are relatively small. - Bill Strong

This campground grew on us during our stay. The campground definitely caters to seasonals. As a Coast-to-Coast member; they are newly returned to the KOA system this year (the main building is obviously that of an old KOA). Many seasonal sites have been improved upon by their inhabitants, especially with nice patios or decks. Some ideas of "improvement" are a matter of taste, but in any case we did not see any outside refrigerators or "junky" appearance, despite the abundance of flamingos and bear statues. Quite a few pull-through sites which will accommodate bigger rigs. Some turns in the campground can be tight and require care to negotiate. The trees: though also abundant, are trimmed or thinned in such a way that getting around with a big rig is possible without damage. Sites are natural in appearance:. dusty in dry weather and the utility hookups are older. No sewer hookups available, but the park offers a dump station and honey wagon service ($5 for the latter). The campground is very popular with fishermen, being located on Cranberry Lake, and there are lots of boats here. Bathrooms: especially those in the community building, are spacious and clean, with plenty of hot water for the showers. There's a pool, shuffleboard courts, and weekend activities. The campground is not easy to find, located down several small winding backroads, but it has a real "North Woods" feel. There are even warnings to watch out for bears, particularly near the trash dumpsters at night. (Fortunately the dumpsters are located near the campground entrance, not near sites; unfortunately that means a long walk, or a drive for some near the lake to dispose of their trash. Staff does not do trash pickup, presumably because of the bear issue). Wi-Fi is available only at the office building. There are cellphone towers in the area, as ours worked (surprisingly) while we were here. Note: if hooking up to water, let it run for a while first: lots of rust came out of our faucet for the first 30 seconds or so. We'd probably camp here again if in the area. It's a very pretty spot, and at least off-season on the weekend was quite quiet. - PokyRVer

We camp here every summer. This is not a five star resort but a north woods campground. Most sites are adequate in size. The roads can get very dusty during dry weather. Owners are on site and friendly. Nice park to sit back relax, fish, and enjoy the rustic north. - corky506

They have added add'l sites and amenities in kid's play area since our last visit. Rate is for 30 amp which had trouble keeping up with our 2 space heaters and coffee pot, necessities in the below freezing temps. The campsites in the older part of the park are beautiful, wooded and private but can be tight for larger rigs. The newer part of the park, next to a man made pond, of is wide open with not many trees. The dog park they have listed is just an open field with no fence. A short bike ride along the highway to the sidewalks that lead to town. - Nautical Wheelers

Customer service was Terrible: check in my husband was ignored for several minutes & presided to help another customer who walked in after him. Poor Directions where given to our camp site. As well as poor instructions on site lines. Site 20 has 2 fire pits one deemed unusable making it very confusing where to park trailer. Ended up needing to purchase longer electrical cord & water hose. Other campers walked right through our site to get to pond. Pond is very rocky shore many weeds. There where also many other issues that arose during our two night stay. Staff did little to nothing about any of our concerns. At checkout I once again expressed my frustration to a female staff member (manager) regarding the site 20 she said She didn't know there was two fire pits..Ok your the manager for 4 months & you don't know your campground? 1st & last time we'll stay there. Paid a lot of money to stay there. More than state campgrounds in Michigan. - Camper family 3

We were looking for a place with full hookups, and they only had two of their unoccupied seasonal sites available. Our site was level, open, with a few trees. The site next to us faced our site, had there been somebody in that site we literally would have been next to each other (within a few feet) had we all been outside. From what I saw this probably was the only site in the campground like this. Our utilities also were at the wrong end of the site, we had to run 20' of sewer hose. If you camp anywhere close to the pond you will be in a field, sites closer to the entrance are more wooded, but some seemed difficult to get into. Overall, not a bad private campground. Things they could do better. Our site looked out over a huge open field close to a storage facility. There were several boats and campers stored right across the road from our site. Some were eyesores to look at. If they moved them to the other side of the field that would resolve the problem.
They require that you only purchase firewood from them, if a campground is going to require this, the wood must be reasonably priced. We paid $15.00 for 18 sticks of wood. Almost a buck a piece. I would say that is almost double than what I am used to paying. The wood was of high quality though. There is a guy selling wood right at the entrance of the campground, at first glance it appears that it is part of the campground but it is not. This needs to somehow be more clear when you pull in.
The pond was just ok, smaller than I expected. They need to figure out how to drag the beach once a week or so to remove weeds and grass.
They have a nice check in/sitting/bar area with a nice outdoor patio overlooking the pond. - tslarson
