The reason I post reviews is for other big rigs to know whether or not a campground will suit them. We just pulled into Pontiac with a 44' RV and are very happy with the site lay out. We are in site 7, which fits us very well. The site is not very deep but allows us to back off the concrete pad a ways so it worked well. The campsite is very spacious and wide other than for the depth and very well kept and also includes a very nice fire pit. If you are in a big rig I suggest keeping to sites 1-9, which are very open and you will not have to worry about limbs or trees. Overall very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a good campground for seeing the greater Detroit area. Most of the sites in the west loop are in the trees and very private. We chose site 44 because it was more open. Glad we did because Verizon both cell and 4G struggled inside our rig. The campground was never full even on one of the biggest weekends of the summer, Woodward Ave. Dream Cruise. Everyone was extremely polite and quiet. At night on the weekends it does get a little smoky from the campfires; thank goodness for A/C. The showers are individual with plenty of hot water. The restrooms were always spotless. Sites do vary in levelness so pay attention to what the website description says. A previous reviewer noted that the electric box is close to the pad on the west loop and far away on the east loop. A significant reason to choose the west loop (numbers 1 through 94) with an RV and A/C. The rate was $18 per night. $8.00 reservation fee. Out-of-state: $30.50 non-resident pass good for one year at all MI parks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Park is the closest location for visiting Detroit and the surrounding area. Website shows pictures and description of each site which allows you to determine the type you prefer. As a 45' motorhome with 2 satellite dishes we prefer no trees and these are available. Power does not appear to be a true 30 amp service (very old) so take care when trying to run more than 1 a/c. Trees need to be trimmed along road to prevent tall rigs from brushing limbs, but not impossible to pass. Very quiet and large sites. Price is $18, but you will pay $30 for out of state vehicle pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The park was excellent. There are two circles to the park. The lower end of the park with lower space numbers have the electricity very close to camping spaces. Higher numbers you will need a very long extension cord to reach electricity. The park was clean and well shaded which means leaves all over (it was the fall) and apples on the ground in the upper areas which smelled like rotting apples (again it was the fall) It was a beautiful park. Well kept, kid friendly, very clean restrooms. I would stay here again without hesitation. I ranked it a 9 because there wasn't anything 'extra' but for a place to camp it was great. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

For being as close to civilization as this park is, it truly has an outdoorsy feel. The shaded sites, one of which we had, were extremely private. The campsite was essentially carved into the woods, there was no sight of neighbors on either side. Paved and level pads for the camper were very nice. The sites are a bit on the smaller side, but I personally enjoyed that, made it feel more rustic. The paved roads are a bit narrow, so I can see how bigger rigs may have a problem. One large motorhome had a shaded site, and just barely had enough room to expand his slides. The sunny sites would alleviate that problem I would imagine. Bathrooms were a bit older, but were kept quite clean. The shower facilities also were older, and had some bug issues, but all in all weren't terrible. If you're looking to camp in the woods, this is the place to be! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
