I agree with some and disagree with some of the comments posted by the previous reviewer (helencatrina). There were many homesteaders/seasonals. I also don't like the raised sewer lines. The sites are very close together. There was free cable TV available, an AWESOME and friendly camp manager couple. AWESOME FAST AMAZING wifi!! Best RV park wifi I have used. Lots of shade was a good thing due to mid 90's heat. The small private RV park beach at the lake was very nice. Very clean restrooms and showers, freshly painted. I called the day before showing up and the park manager was able to get me a space. I understand how some get upset about homesteaders but in my travels I have never been denied a spot and all should remember with the minimal funding the RV parks receive these homesteaders are vital to keeping them open. I would absolutely return. NOTE: no Commissary on base and a long way to supermarkets so bring your food. Shoppette didn't have much at all. At $17 a night really VERY little to complain about.
We stayed here in a travel trailer on our way north. The camp is just off I75 and just inside the security gate. All the sites are mostly level but sandy. It rained while we were here so the trailer got a little gritty. Although the place had many empty sites, only about a half dozen were available. We didn't have reservations. There is good hunting, fishing, canoeing here, so I imagine is might be busy on weekends in season. We will stay here again. Full hookups, cable TV, and WiFi for $17.00 a night.
W.B. left this review using the Directory software: It's an older one as others have said, but is well taken care of. Not only free Wi-Fi, but there's now cable tv as well. The 'Troop Store' is a small PX, but it's more than found at most non-active duty bases. On-site manager is very friendly and helpful. Lake is clean and there's a good sized beach.
What everyone else said except if you're making dust, you are driving too fast. Lots of dogs, however, dogs are only allowed in the campground and not on post. Usually I let Mr. GPS find our way. Luckily this time we needed to go to the PO first. When I tried to dial in Camp Grayling in the Garmin, it couldn't find it. Asked some locals and they gave us good directions from where we were. In the CG I was talking to a neighbor who let his Garmin take them about 16 miles away and they got stuck in the sand and ended up with a $180 tow bill.
We stayed at the park during Labor Day weekend. Sites were very close together but level. We did not have a problem leveling our 37ft Coach. The best sites are occupied by long termers. A very relaxing campground! Over all this is a good camp site for the price. Would stay again!
This is a great park for the traveler who wants easy travel to Traverse or Mackinaw. The bathrooms need updated as the shower stalls has paint peeling from the walls and there is no soap or towel dispenser.The electric needs to be updated to accommodate the bigger rigs, we had low power the whole time we were there. The park manager and his wife are nice people, but have a hard time keeping up with everything a park manager position requires. I think improvements could be made without taking away from the atmosphere of the park.
Wonderful campground conveniently located off of I-75 just a couple miles from a small town. Nicely wooded area with close access to a scenic lake. One mile from the PX, not a full PX but has just about anything you could need on a short trip. Nice trails for biking and hiking with abundant wildlife. Only real complaint would be how ridiculously small the campsites were. There were no fire-pits and minimal room to park one vehicle. We had a mini-van and had to park it at an angle to fit it between our neighbors' trucks. Overall, we had a great time.
