1) Well maintained restrooms.
2) I'll get back to you when I can come up with more positive observations!
1) Their advertisements state, "Overlooking Sturgeon Bay." Snort!!! The ability to see Sturgeon Bay is relegated to about 11 sites in the Park Place section, all of which are reserved for seasonal customers.
2) Their advertisements state, "WiFi available." Snort!!! Been here 3 days and still awaiting one WiFi signal!
3) Gosh....for $40.00 you'd think they could scrounge up a cable provider and run a cable throughout the park....you'd think! BUT, you know that anyhow as they don't mention cable hookups in any advertisements.
4) There are no pull through sites reserved for the transit/traveling customer - we never found one. This park is decidedly focused on seasonal residents and almost all of them are back ins!! The transit sites are fairly close together - meaning you can extend your slides and not fear being right on top of your neighbor but you will be seeing them setting at their dining table.
This park mimics other Encore sites we've stayed in....little attention paid to cleaning up the sites between checkouts and check-ins (our fire pit was full of empty glass bottles)....focused on seasonal customers....as far as "value received," about 30% markup over comparable parks.
Doubt if we'll stay here again, unless a true emergency forces us to have to stay!! We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Office closed when we arrived, just some poor instructions in a mailbox. No warm water for the showers in our area, had to use some further away. Did not help to inform them, still no warm water next day. Shop closed from Sunday early afternoon to reopen next Friday. $3 Resort fee for what? No activities, no shop, no warm water. Would not stay again We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We gave it a 4 because if you are a Passport America member, they stick you out in a large field with the worst set up for utilities. We needed two hoses to reach the water, which is set up for three or four sites. It is completely opposite where the electric is located. If I ever returned, which is doubtful, I sure wouldn't use Passport America. This is an Encore property and you would expect more. They have two washers and dryers for the entire property and they don't work correctly! We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Large wooded lots that are level. Our reservation was botched so we had to move twice in two weeks. Be sure to talk directly to the office. Central reservations does not identify themselves so you need to ask. Wi-Fi is extremely poor and unreliable. TV antenna reception is very poor and with the trees forget satellite TV reception. Cable TV should be available to those campers who cannot run a sat dish cable hundreds of feet to get reception. Too many seasonal residents to make transients such as ourselves feel welcome. Septic system at site backs up when dumping. UGH! We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Like this park a lot. Quiet but still a lot of people around. Got two new friends there from another state. Easy to access the sites even with our long rig. Water turned off for first week since it was freezing cold but campground called and informed us. We stayed there for 6 weeks so no problems at all. Staff friendly. Always tried to help you out. Clean and no litter, screaming kids, or drunk people, but still people who had beer and kids who had fun! Pool very clean and not sure if it was a mistake but most of the things in their shop was priced lower than Walmart. Internet worked on and off to start with (Tengo) but after a call to them, router was restarted and then it was decent. Nice hotel with a bar and restaurant just around the corner overlooking the water. Nice trip with the fire boat in Sturgeon Bay just 5 minutes away. Will for sure come back!

The park shows up under two names, both Quietwoods North and Tranquil Timbers will get you there. A very pleasant park. Ask for the Wi-Fi access codes at the store by the pool. The service connections required a strange placement of the coach as we don't carry long hoses. There is a No-Kids hours at the pool (more places should do this). We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Overall it's a decent place to stay. We arrived on a Thursday at 5:30pm and the office was closed. There was a note on the door saying our check in packet was in the mailbox by the door. Inside there was a pass key, map and date card. But no instructions as to the rules, checkout, how to hook up wi fi etc. You are kind of on your own. It was our first time there so we were a bit confused. Once settled the site was a full hookup, big, lots of trees. Pad is gravel. They allow mats. The people in the store were very helpful and friendly. Overall I would say the place needs a bit of cleaning up, lots of weeds coming up through landscaping etc. But it was a good location for our Door County visit. There are a lot of seasonal campers there. It is also right next to the Sturgeon Bay airport so if an occasional plane flying over bugs you better find a different park. I think we'd stay there again. It wasn't the nicest place but for a couple nights it was fine. The price seemed a bit high for the quality $48 a night for full hookup.

This park is pretty and a nice place to stay if you're a seasonal camper. But if you're just coming for a couple days, you'll likely only get a lumpy uneven grassy site with only 30A electric and water. Since we paid a discounted rate for our stay, this was moderately acceptable, but had we been paying full price, this would have been excessively overpriced for what you get. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay here. Has level sites, a small tennis and basketball court, pool, store, horseshoe pits and mini golf. Motorcycle friendly. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This property is owned by a corporation in Florida and if you call the 800 number for reservations, that's who you get. They are unfamiliar with the park and any reservations already made by other parties. There is nothing "resortish" about this park. Approximately 50% of the sites are "seasonal": RVs that never leave for the season. We encountered rude, improperly trained personnel working in a somewhat dumpy campground that in no way met our expectations. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This is now an Elite campground and I believe it to e overpriced. We booked without seeing it over labor day as we thought we needed to book in advance. Campground was about 20% booked. Lots of kids and tent campers. They stated free Wi-Fi over the phone. It was Nomad with a prepaid coupon. It was free, but the rangers didn’t know what to do. I finally figured it out. A handout would have been great, but there was none. Just a slip with the coupon number. Bathrooms were OK and pool was nice (filled with loud kids. They had a large field with one pedestal (30 amp) for 4 sites with a similar setup for water (four on one). First time I ever used my whole electrical cord. The shaded spots are much nicer, but were taken by seasonal types. I think next time, I would go further up the delta as that is where all of the activity is anyway. Might as well be up there. We did not have sewer at site. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed for Memorial Day Weekend. Nice campground, was very busy. We got full hookups for the weekend which is nice, and our campsite was near a trail that connected to a nearby state park. Will return again next year. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Surprisingly nice campground, lots of trees and good space between sites. Quiet, even though we were by the pool. Pool could have been cleaner, store was not open while we were there (11-3 are odd hours) but appeared to have a larger than normal inventory. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
This park was sold about a year ago and they are going through some changes, the store is not open as one might like. However, this is a VERY nice campground with gated access & exit. Some of the sites are very deep to handle bigger motor homes. Quite a few sites are completely shaded and we hardly saw a mosquito. Lots of roads with lots of kids on bikes, etc so be careful. My 10 year old son loved riding his bike here. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Truck Camper.

Good things: Lots of trees, shade, next to state park, quiet, large sites, level sites. When hooking up there was a problem with their water spigot and anti-siphon valve. They fixed it within 10 minutes. Not so good: WiFi was intermittent at best, sites were all stone (no grass) probably due to all the trees, poor maintenance in some areas (e.g. basketball court). Overall, we would camp here again. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
