The name of this campground is WHEEL INN RV PARK. This is how the owners label their receipts as is the signage. The motel has been razed. I think by including the word "motel", their RV business is being hurt. Please change the name. I know that we were doubtful of staying where there was a concurrent motel operations. The owners are friendly and helpful. Highway traffic is not heavy and not a lot of loud noises, but vehicles drive 50' away. We would stay again.
Owners very friendly and upgraded our site because it is near the end of their season and wanted to give back to their guests. They are doing their best to improve their campground. Next season they will have sites on the creek. Will stay here again.
We stayed here once before during the first Jazz Fest after Katrina, so were anxious to see any improvements and to save some money. Not a big change other than it is cleaned up, the motel is repainted, a security gate is installed and there is a new office outside the gate. They list sites at $20 per night on their web page. We were charged $30. Our neighbor paid $20 and they had no reservation either. Print out web page and take it with you to get the $20/night rate. Couldn't get a refund. Now they rent out about 20 former FEMA trailers. Had a loose pit bull which campground owner said had broken its chain, so he is aware of what goes on. The campground rules say that dogs are not to be chained outside unattended, just like any other campground. One of our dogs is blind and my wife was very intimidated. There are several dogs chained outside. Will not stay here again.
For those who have used this park in the past, it is just the same as always. It is older with tight spaces, but everyone has a patio, picnic table and a grill. The power is good. The pool is cleaned weekly and fresh water is exchanged several times a day. It is mineral water and has stuff in it. This has been a bad bug season everywhere, use a spray. There is a small pile of stuff to recycle. Would stay here again and enjoy the rustic pool which is so nice with any temp you want.
When we arrived on Sat afternoon early, no one in the office. We had problems with the electricity to site 71 (72 & 73 also). There was no breaker at power point. We figured out what appeared to be an old mobile home power pedestal had breakers which controlled several other power outlets. We later discovered that the power was not grounded. Since we were setup, we didn't move. There was no one to complain to since it was Easter weekend.We did complain on Monday, but attitude was that things were beyond owners control regarding the electricity. Tuesday morning at 3 am a four hour thunderstorm hit. The sites didn't drain about 2-3 inches of standing water. We took dogs for a walk and our blind female dog started yelling and crying, went into convulsion and her legs were all contracted. My wife handed her up the steps to me and we all got shocked. We were very unhappy and the attitude was that they can't do anything until they know about it. There is such a thing a preventative maintenance. You risk your life staying here!
Missed the turn to the park like many have. Coming south on Hwy 2 after turning off Manitoba, it is the first left turn, in front of the KCF. Address is 300 River Drive for your GPS. While there are sewer hookups, they are all taken (9) by the seasonal campers, so there aren't full hookups for transient campers. Guess gravel must be very expensive in Canada since all of the RV parks needed gravel that we have stayed in during our travels except the one in Winnipeg. This park is poorly maintained and one of our vent caps was damage with tree branch contact. Lot of train noise, but not usually loud except for the hooting which wasn't often. We went on the Al Capone tunnel tour and it was very good. Wi-Fi only next to the office.
Our rate included a 15% discount. There was rain and mud puddles (lakes). Very little maintenance done here. Tall grass and all kinds of bugs. Must not own a weed-whacker. Nearly impossible to walk the dogs in the mud. Need to put gravel on roads and sites. Very, very noisy with the freeway and various industrial sites next to the campground. Don't mind the airport noise--not many flights. Charged $35 for a 30# propane refill. Won't stay here again. Someone needs to build a new campground.
No reservations, first come, first served. Closed 7/19-24 for the Fair. One 50 amp next to building and six 30 amp. Water available. Dump. Two sites under trees. Relatively quiet except for a 5:30 am wake up as the local bus starts and runs for a half hour before leaving with the park and ride folks. Dogs loved the place as there are lots of critters around. An ace in the hole for us since we didn't have any reservations for the 4th weekend and everyplace was full. Nice bike/walking trail goes by CG.
10 mins. from downtown Milwaukee. CG used to be a parking lot. Fair size spaces. Not very quiet, near freeway and road plus many carnival workers are housed in bunkhouse rigs. Currently they are setting up rides for the coming Greekfest which starts 6/24--we'll go eat there! The carnival folks have no campground manners. We have them walking under our awning and under the front of the 5W. Big party next door until 4 am. Management doesn't enforce any rules it seems.
Friendly, helpful staff. Narrow spaces, but they try not to park someone next to you. Check for event dates before booking. It doesn't have sewer, but there is a honey wagon service. Wal-Mart on the other side of the east fence with an access at the north end of CG. Noise, but sort of a general hum. We have stayed here before and will again since it is the closest CG to Detroit.
A very pleasant park and very quiet. In the country about 11 miles west of Tawas City. Large sites with tables and fire rings at each site. A CCUSA park, so at $13/night, a real bargain. Our Verizon phone and Air Card didn't work there although you could see a tower about a mile away. Nice to see deer in the park. We would stay there again.
Friendly owners and campers. Our pull through is actually a pull-in and back out site. Had too many trees to make the turn out. Nice shade, it would be nice to have gravel for parking and entry area. Sand is terrible when wet. A very nice countryside. Saw two geese families and one swan family. Have to expect some droppings to see nature. Guy caught 18 fish in the little pond. Lots to do! This is a PasportAmerican and CampClubUSA RV park. Honored with no questions, or bad sites.
