Beautiful and clean was my first impression. Very helpful staff. Small walk or drive to the sandy beach. Lots of nice walking trails. Bikes to rent. Three campgrounds....1) no electric, 2) elec no pets 3) elec with pets. Upon arriving they asked us if we needed to fill our holding tank with water and directed us to the fill area. For the size of the campgrounds it was very quiet. Would definitely return.
This is definitely a place we will return to. The owners bought it one year ago and you can tell have made significant improvements. Very shady sites with grass. Extremely friendly owners always driving around checking to make sure we are satisfied. Relatively quiet during the day and evening because most are at Cedar Point Amusement Park. Would give it a "10" if they had a pool.
The non-seasonal section is only one year old and very nice. They are still trying to grow grass. Brand new restrooms with pay showers. 25 cents for 3 minutes. Nothing in their material stated pay showers but they were worth it anyway. Campground had a potluck Saturday night which we were invited to many times. Owners supplied hamburgers and hot dogs. Best pot luck I have been to in a long time. 4 piece band played for 3 hours and they were terrific. They advertised walking trails which were muddy and not passable. We had a great time anyway and will return. Very friendly staff.
We stayed at the Portage Lake Campground. Very nice facility, clean and updated. Electric is the only hookup, but water was close by. Twenty thousand acre recreation area with a lot of walking/hiking trails. Nice clean sandy beach for swimming, when it is warm. We would definitely return. A Michigan passport to use a state park is required. Yearly non-resident fee is $30; daily rate is $8.50.
The only positive was the friendly staff. Many amenities were unusable: putt-putt, shuffleboard, basketball. They need to stop advertising these because of their condition. The pool/pond had a strong green/blue color. Park store has very limited supplies. Bathrooms were not clean at all. Website is down.
Our first RV experience after years of tent camping. Large sites and a stone's throw from Lake Superior, with beautiful sunsets. Was not camping with kids but saw that playground and horse shoe ring needs to be replaced. Close to town. The restrooms were OK but little ventilation in showers. We needed a longer hose to attach water so office let us borrow one which was nice.
A little disappointed that the "heated" pool and hot tub were already closed for the season. Very large pull-through sites. Also had some deluxe RV sites with concrete stamped pad, table and chairs, gas grill, chiminea, fire pit, and glider. Doggie playground area too. Nice store and restaurant. A+ on the restrooms/showers. Lots of activities for grand kids. Surrounded by corn fields in the middle of nowhere: very quiet.
Our first trip in our RV. Beautiful location and close to town. We did not travel with children but playground needs updating. Bathrooms clean. Shower water pressure was good but not much ventilation. Needed a longer hose for water so office gave us one to use during our stay. Large sites with plenty of shade.
