If you are looking for a campground that offers serenity but is still near to the ocean and great shopping, this is it! The campground is wooded and the sites are plenty big. You won't feel like you are in packed in like sardines. The staff was more than helpful with anything we needed including recommending where the good restaurants, shopping and beaches could be found. They have nice fire pits for recreational or cooking fires. The laundry room was very clean with decent machines. They also have site-side garbage pick up daily. We will definitely return to this campground the next time we head out to Maine.
Campground has a beautiful view of Lake Ontario and the Mackinac Bridge. If you choose a lake site, you will have a site just large enough for your camper and awning and you will be able to virtually see right into your neighbor's windows. I would highly recommend taking an inland site and then walking the short distance to the lakefront view. The campground has a nice grassy area with benches that anyone can use to take in the view as well as paths down to the rocky waterfront if you want to touch the water. They allow pets but ask that you keep them off the grassy area on the lakefront and keep them on the paved road only which is nearly impossible. If you have a lake site, then your pets also have absolutely no yard either. The view was beautiful and it did have the full hook ups, but I would not take a lake site here again. This is also a very large campground with many sites and the map is very poor, so it can be difficult to find your site. The registration person was not very friendly or helpful. There are no fire pits: only very shallow fire pans that you can use. You would be better to bring your own fire container as the pans they provide would be better to bake a cake in.
This campground had nice size yards for each site and a very nice firepit ring. There is not a ton of shade for the non-seasonal sites. Unless you are a permanent, seasonal resident, you are not allowed to use the swimming pool. But everyone does have access to their "waterpark" which consists of a very nice swimming lake, a large inflatable water playground and a water slide. We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to return at some point. A few drawbacks to note: a train goes through at regular intervals, so if the sound of the horn bothers you, this might not be a place for you to stay. There is virtually no cell phone reception and we were unable to get any antenna reception for TV. They also charge an additional $10 residence fee for your stay besides the nightly charge. It's a bit pricey, but you still get a lot for what you are paying.
This campground is nice for an overnight stay. If you enjoy having a nice campfire and just sitting outside relaxing, this is not the best place to stay. The pull through sites are easy to get into, but trees are sparse in the interior of the campground, so no shade. There are no fire pits: just metal bowls on posts stuck in the ground. The picnic tables are in need of replacing. The staff was friendly and helpful, but the sites were not what I had expected. I would recommend as a one night stay if you are passing through but it would not be my first choice if I needed to stay several days.
As noted by another reviewer, this is one of the only options in the area, but my husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. We had a back in site and it did not seem to take much to get our 33' trailer situated. The site is gravelled with a very pretty stone rather than grass, and the trees and brush in between the campsites provided the necessary privacy. We did wish that we would have taken one of the premium pull through sites as some of them were even nicer. We did not use the pool and we don't have children so I cannot attest to the activities or pool. We also had no issues with the 30amp site and our cable worked fine. The campground is clean, the sites have curbside garbage pick up daily, the camp store has more than you can ask for if you've forgotten or run out of something and the staff is friendly. The only drawback I found was that the fenced in dog area was small and set up for smaller dogs. My labrador retrievers really had no space to run so we ended up spending more time just walking them around the campground or on the dog trails they have set up. The campground is a bit pricey, but I would definitely stay here again. I actually wish it was closer to where I live rather than several states away so that I could stay there more often.
My husband and I stayed only one night here in a pull-through site on our way out east. The site was nice as it had a decent picnic table and enough lawn for our 2 labrador retrievers to walk around on. The gravel pad was very level and we didn't have to do much to set up for the night. We did not use the shower house or bathroom there as we were self-contained in our trailer and just dumped at our next stop. The swim lake was nice and refreshing. In general, we enjoyed our short stay and would definitely stay there again if we were traveling through. The only complaint I guess I have is that it cost an extra $5 for me to have 2 pets on the site.
