The views of the mountains are spectacular. My cabin looked across the valley and it made it worth it all. Many sites are tucked away among boulders and the few trees. Very rustic, but nice. Also, one of the only campgrounds open this time of the year. The shower rooms were heated and very clean. The host was incredibly nice and helpful.
Very quiet and peaceful place. The little pond was fun for bass and bluegill fishing. Saw horsemen on the trails, and I hear its good for that. Great mountain bike trails on the South side. Very little shade and gravel pads are overgrown with grass. Had some trouble with our 30amp; had to give it a few whacks to work. Pit toilet was atrocious, but nothing new there. Showers were outdated though fairly clean. The water smelled terrible. Overall, its a good trip if you stay away from the facilities.
Overall, our experience of twice camping here, has been very positive. The pool is closed for adults only from 9-10pm, and is otherwise open to children. There are more activities than you can imagine with a movie every night, hayrack rides, and plenty of toys to play with. I did mountain bike laps around the premises with some nice technical trails in the woods. WiFi only seems to work closer to the building, which can be expected. A pet park is available, though a little small. We'll be back.
Traverse City is an incredible town making the location of the park a huge asset. Tall pines provide some shade to nearly all sites. A paved bike path connects many miles of trails through town and abroad. You can ride your bike to amusement parks and restaurants. A newer bathroom/shower facility sits on the East end. A pet "free" area is located central and south. Sites are kind of close together, but it seems to work out. The only major difficulty is exiting on a very busy highway.
Rustic forest sites for smaller RVs and tents. Great fishing within a short walk on a premier trout and salmon river. All sites have shade. Very quiet except for the river and wildlife. Gravel sites with many on an angle. Self-registration.
Many sites are small and cramped, but the spectacular views and clean showers made up for the site space. With the rocky shoreline and waves crashing, it made for a delightful experience. About a third of the sites had lake views. Shade is scarce, but it is cooler with the lake close by. Porcupine is a huge State Park with trails, skiing, waterfalls, and fishing. A camp store with mainly trinkets and a few supplies is nearby. Wonderful place.
The only reason I don't rate this as excellent is due to the highway noise and my wifi didn't work from our site (we were the furthest from the office). However, we had about a 1/2 acre to ourselves with trees and mowed grass, which was really nice. There are mostly paved roads throughout. It is very convenient with fuel and food close by. We'll definitely stay here again.
Stayed one night for just a stopover. I live in the area, so I knew of all that there is to offer. Great park next door at Lake of the Woods. Plenty of eateries in Mahomet. I thought it would be loud with interstate traffic noise, but it was surprisingly quiet. Host was very nice.
Nearly all sites on the West loop are scenic with woodsy views. Sites on the Northeast loops appear slightly cramped and along main road. Very quiet location with level asphalt pads and easy access. Close to Hwy 36 for easy in and out. River and ponds close by for fishing and fun. Hiking trail connects to campground.
Mountain goats and deer were all around. I could see newly stocked brook trout in the stream from my trailer window. I caught one of the biggest brown trout of my life at 24" in the campground pond. Plenty of 15" plus rainbows as well. Cleanest vault toilets ever. Very quiet. Wood available at the registration kiosk. Bike/hike trail connects the campground. Campground at the north entrance of the Custer Wildlife loop where buffalo and pronghorns abound.
A little steep on the price, but worth it for all the amenities. Great kids campground. Fire truck rides, loads of toys to play on, and ice cream social. The standard tight, parallel sites. Very level with easy access and good shade. Great tent area with dispersed camping in the woods. Neat dog obstacle course in fenced area. Individual showers with their own door. Far enough from the interstate to be quiet. Staff patrols frequently.
We dry camped 20 feet from the river. Beautiful location. Very few amenities. Only the most rugged RVs attempt this. On the West side, there are small roads with potholes. Mostly paved through campground. On the East side, rugged large stones and difficult to maneuver, but easier access by highway 151. Dogs need vaccination records. Bears in the area. Beautiful covered bridge (no autos) and great trout fishing. If your rig can take it, go for it.
Nice, quiet location outside of town. Easy access to I-81. Most sites are close together. Some level sites on gravel. Men's restroom and showers are "locker room" style; kind of open, but functional. Nice shade and amenities.
Very nice campground with two locations. One is close to the river while the other is in deep woods. Both are very nice. I ran for miles through the 100 acres woods campground. Walked down to the river at our camp. Separate kids and adult game rooms. Ice cream social. Very shaded and private site with cable TV. Easy access to fishing and Lake Placid.
Great location on the river and close to shopping at Manchester Center. Level site and area around picnic table and fire pit were nicely raked. My wife complained about no soap in the bathrooms, but they were clean and functional. Well shaded and very quiet.
We stopped for a quick overnight. The attendants opened the office after-hours to sign us in. They then escorted us to our site. Easy in and out. Relatively quiet despite being adjacent to Hwy 54. Very pretty and convenient location. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Very rustic in an incredible location. Sits inside Glen Canyon and you can hear the roaring river. Easy access and nice sites. Very open and could be extremely warm in summer. Torrential winds pick up occasionally.
Awesome location. The small trout stream and swimming hole are picture perfect. You can hear them from all the campsites. Very rustic place with hiking and fishing. No reservations, first-come. Fills up on weekends.
