We stayed at the Portage Lake Campground. Very nice facility, clean and updated. Electric is the only hookup, but water was close by. Twenty thousand acre recreation area with a lot of walking/hiking trails. Nice clean sandy beach for swimming, when it is warm. We would definitely return. A Michigan passport to use a state park is required. Yearly non-resident fee is $30; daily rate is $8.50.
The only positive was the friendly staff. Many amenities were unusable: putt-putt, shuffleboard, basketball. They need to stop advertising these because of their condition. The pool/pond had a strong green/blue color. Park store has very limited supplies. Bathrooms were not clean at all. Website is down.
Our first RV experience after years of tent camping. Large sites and a stone's throw from Lake Superior, with beautiful sunsets. Was not camping with kids but saw that playground and horse shoe ring needs to be replaced. Close to town. The restrooms were OK but little ventilation in showers. We needed a longer hose to attach water so office let us borrow one which was nice.
A little disappointed that the "heated" pool and hot tub were already closed for the season. Very large pull-through sites. Also had some deluxe RV sites with concrete stamped pad, table and chairs, gas grill, chiminea, fire pit, and glider. Doggie playground area too. Nice store and restaurant. A+ on the restrooms/showers. Lots of activities for grand kids. Surrounded by corn fields in the middle of nowhere: very quiet.
Our first trip in our RV. Beautiful location and close to town. We did not travel with children but playground needs updating. Bathrooms clean. Shower water pressure was good but not much ventilation. Needed a longer hose for water so office gave us one to use during our stay. Large sites with plenty of shade.
