We came in for a week without reservation and found a very nice wooded site. Driving around the campground saw many sites that in my opinion were very large. (Michigan take note!) Minnesota is going to an all site reservation system beginning 1/1/2015 eliminating walk in sites making weekend camping plans without reservation almost impossible at popular parks. Nice bike trails and paths. The Riverway part of campground very close to river with nice path next to it. Nice staff. Would definitely return.
Great little campground in the UP. On a lake but the sites were off the lake. Think maybe 1 or 2 sites had a little lake view across the street. I believe all sites backed up to woods or meadow. Smaller sites very wooded. Larger sites more open but nice size. Utilities on front of site so make sure you have adequate hose and cord to reach. Cell service non-existent. They claimed to have wi-fi but weak. Some people went to club house to connect. Great staff. Very we'll kept property. We would return.
We really liked this campground. There are sites here for everyone's tastes. Sunny, shaded, open, private, lake sites. If you reserve in advance you'll find something you love. We went in unreserved and they found us a site with view of the water, next to a road, with a green space between us and the lake with view of the bridge. She said go look at it and make sure you like it. We did. The staff was great. Bathrooms and showers also very adequate. There is a great trail from the campground to the docks where you take the boat to Mackinac Island. We'd definitely stay here again.
This park has a lot to offer. Extremely nice personnel. Clean showers and bathrooms. Wonderful beach area with magnificent sunset views. Great bicycle path and a river that runs through park for rafting on a nice day. Why the 8 rating? The campsites were too "dense" for us. We probably had 3 fire pits within 12 feet of our trailer. We drove the 3 campgrounds and saw some nice sites but overall there were too many cars, campers, and people for the area. The campers next to us were extremely nice and respectful, but overall we need a little more breathing room. If you should chose to camp here, I'd recommend you get a site on the outside of the loop and avoid those that back up to one another.
Potato Creek is another of Indiana's great state parks. Big park on a lake that had a swimming beach, great bicycle trails on and off road, nature center, camp store, boat rental just to mention a few of the things offered. Lots of mature trees in campground. The showers and restrooms were very clean. Saw lots of campground personnel constantly check on the restrooms and the garbage. Like most campgrounds on a weekend there were lots of kids and barking dogs. There was not a lot of privacy between campsites so all that became very obvious once the weekend began. During the week it was very peaceful and quiet.
We love this campground for two reasons. Close to home so that I can commute to work and the river sites with their view of the river and barges. Nothing can beat the sun coming up over the river with a barge in site. The river sites are in the Great Falls area sites 1-20. We give the park a review of 8 because of the quality of water (we bring our water from home) and the fact that only 20 of the sites are on the river. If I was coming to the area to visit Starved Rock State Park, I would choose this campground and use it as my home base. There are a number of restaurants in the town of Marseilles a short drive away.
Catherine's Landing is one of the best campgrounds we've stayed in in the past 3 years. It was a dairy in it's previous life and we even met the previous owners at the pool. What a nice family. The grounds, pool, and the staff were all excellent. We were here at a rally and the pavilion came in handy for our potlucks. The trees are relatively news, so there is not a lot of shade at the sites but in a few years the grounds will be beautiful. We were lucky with a river site and couldn't have been more happy. The campground is close to Hot Springs which surprised me with it's interesting history. We'll definitely come back.
