This is a great little park. Yes, the spots are tight, but you can always ask for one of the sites where there are no other campers. This park is off the hwy, and even though you can see cars getting off on the off ramp up the hill, you really don't hear them. That is one of my hubby's pet peeves, is road and train noise. This park was great. The owners are so kind and we enjoyed meeting Mr. D who promptly gave us some fresh zuchinni from his wife's garden on site. We cooked it up with some asparagus, butter, garlic and a little parmesan and it was wonderful. You bet we will be back when we pass through WY again.
Don't let this place fool you when you pull up. It is a GEM! The hotel is old, and I have no idea about the rooms, but drive to the back and you will find several spots right on the river with full hook-ups. We stumbled upon this place 2 years ago, and we were apprehensive, but after we got settled in, we realized we had the best RV location in town. This little slice of heaven is right across the street from the Lava Spa and pools. And at the camper, we could listen to the sound of the river all night long. All the other RV places are so close to the train tracks I would not recommend them. This place is on the other side of the street and the river buffers the train noise. The managers were so wonderful and when our refrigerator went out in the camper, they had no issue with letting us put our food in theirs. I tell you, give this place a try.
We have stayed at Sleeping Bear every year for the last 8 years on our way into the area for hunting and on our way out of the area. Always clean and the folks are always nice. It is the best campground in the area. It is just off the road, up a hill to buffer the street noise. My hubby is a light sleeper and road noise bothers him. But at Sleeping Bear it is not an issue.
Open area for camping, no shade (it's a fairgound). It was clean and the hosts were very nice. There are a LOT of flies due to horses coming in and out of the grounds. Your hookups are behind you and behind a fence that you have to climb over. Water is only available if you park dead center of each camping lane...kind of a horse shoe. We were in P184 and the water was behind P182. You will need an extra long hose and not the typical camper hose. Still, what is up with the fences?? You would think they would provide an opening to walk into the middle of the fences to hook up and unhook. But the campground served our purpose for hunting in the area. There is also no road or train noise. Oh, and there is a speedway right next door and it runs on Fri and Sat nights until about 10 PM.
