This was a nice campground located about 3 miles from the center of town. Our site was somewhat shaded with a great view of the Mackinac Bridge and Island. Sites were level with good drainage. WI-Fi is NomadISP and was $5 for a 24 hour period. The staff was friendly and helpful. The campground allows pets, but they request you keep your pet off of the grass. How many pets use the bathroom on pavement? Not mine, so we pick up after them. We found a great pizza restaurant in town called Mancino's. Very tasty and not pricey like restaurants on Mackinac Island.
This campground was a nice quiet campground with the sites somewhat close together. There are many seasonal campers here. The back-in sites are not angled so it was somewhat difficult to back in. At 10:00pm, they came on the loud speaker and told all kids there would be no more riding bicycles around the campground for the evening. We didn't have any kids, but we've never experienced this in another campground. Entrance is a narrow one lane road, but there wasn't any traffic. We took a couple tours in the area during our two night stay. We toured the Toyota assembly plant in Georgetown and the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort. Both of them were great. We would stay here again.
We were attending the Lumberjack Championships in Hayward, WI and didn't want to pay $50 a night to stay in the KOA. We found the T.P. Resort online and it looked like a nice place and the rate for full hookup wasn't too high ($24.00 a night). The campground is 20 miles south of Hayward. The office for the campground is in a bar and the owner/bar tender is not very friendly. The campground does not take credit cards. There are 45 spaces in the campground, with 40 of those being used by full-time seasonal campers. The 5 reservable spaces require back-in off the main road. The gravel pads were not level (one side of our trailer was 6" lower than the other). Our 30' fifth wheel filled the space. There was poison ivy in the woods adjacent to our campsite. When I made our reservations, I was told this was a full hookup site. Their idea of full hookup and my idea of full hookup are different. At other campgrounds, full hookup has water, electric, and sewer at the site. At T.P. Resort, you have water and electric at each site, but the sewer is a portable container. They bring you a portable fiberglass sewer container which measures 4'x6' and is about 8" deep. They set it outside of your trailer next to you sewer outlet. The smell coming off this container was unbelievable. Trying to drain our tanks before we left was a real chore since the inlet to sewer was about 12" off the ground. I gave this campground a rating of 5 because the sites were shaded, the restrooms were clean, the laundry was open all night, and the fishing was great. We would not stay in this park again because of the sewer hookup. If we are going to Hayward again, we will bite the bullet and stay at the KOA.
This is a Corp of Engineers park on Saylorville Lake. The park is below the dam and is very quiet with great fishing below the dam. My only complaint is the directions to the campground from I-80 on ReserveAmerica had not been updated when we made our reservations. The directions gave instructions to use exit 131. These instructions took you on a route that ended up at a road that had been washed out and closed. We ran into a nice National Guard soldier who escorted us about 15 miles to the correct roads to get into the campground. I reviewed the ReserveAmerica directions after we returned from our trip, and the directions have been updated and changed to use exit 135, which is correct. The sites are nice and level. We would stay in this park again.
This is a city park that is mostly used by HitchHiker and Snowbird 5th wheel owners who are going to Nu-Wa for repair/warranty work. This park is also great for anyone passing through the area just needing an overnight stop. We went to Nu-Wa just to get a repair estimate. The sites on the East side of the park are shorter and require the truck to be un-hitched, while the sites on the West side are longer and allow the truck to stay hitched. This is great if you are only going to be there one night. The first 2 nights are free and then it is only $10 a night. The sites are nice and level with easy access. There is a WalMart less than a mile away. We would stay here again.
