Very clean park and restrooms. Staff is friendly and helpful. The park is conveniently located next to the bike trail. We parked our truck and rode our bikes everywhere we wanted to go. There was a short walk over a pedestrian bridge to get to the beautiful beach. We have a dog that travels with us, but if you do not like pets there is a pet free area. We would stay here again.
We camped in the "rustic" area of the campground. The site was spacious and fairly easy to back our trailer into. The road to the rustic campground is very poor. You need to travel slowly so you do not damage your vehicle. The campground was about half full, however it was nice and quiet. We would stay here again.
We stayed for a weekend at this park, it had been many years since we have stayed here. The park has made many improvements. There is something for everyone: if you want rustic tent sites all the way up to RV park sites they are available. We stayed in the "upper" part of the park, it was very quiet. The sites near the pond and river were close together and very busy with lots of people. We will definitely stay here again.
We stayed in this park while we were handling some family business in the area. Great value for the money. Roads coming in were quite rough, they are supposed to be resurfaced soon. Nice big and private sites. Many hiking, equestrian, and biking trails. We would definitely stay at this park again.
Very expensive for what you get. The pull through sites face another unit so you do not have much privacy, this would be a great feature if you knew the people you were facing. Good place to spend one night while traveling, would not want to spend too many nights here. Sites were small and cramped, pads were gravel. We would probably look for another place to stay if we were in the area again, mostly because of the cost to camp.
Decent place to stay when traveling through area. Staff was friendly. Park is very congested and hard to maneuver around. Park was full of people who were working in the area. Alright for one night but expensive for what you get.
Great place to visit Frankenmuth and Birch Run. Nice quiet park. Found the staff to be very friendly. Full hookups, but no cable TV. There are many channels available with your antenna. We will definitely stay here again when visiting the area.
Nice clean park for a weekend in Grand Rapids. Bathrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen in a campground. The wifi was free and fast. Sites are quite narrow and not very deep. The road noise from nearby US 131 is quite noticable, but we quickly got used to it. The staff was very friendly. The park seemed to have a lot of seasonals, but they were very friendly to us. We would stay here again for a couple of nights.
We have come to Poncho's for many years. Even though the park is getting very large, the family that owns the park is always willing to make you comfortable. The new sites (300's) are mostly back in, and you can be very close to neighbors. We have been to this park twice this year. In the fall and spring the indoor pool and spa are nice.
Great campground, our favorite place to stay in Traverse City. The staff is great to work with. They called me back after I made a reservation over the phone and gave me a new site after they received a cancellation! Internet is free, but you have to be in the right spot to get good reception. No pool, but they have a nice beach on Silver Lake.
We decided to try a new campground in Traverse City, so we stopped here. This would be a great campground if you have children, it appears they have a lot of activities for kids. We did not stay here though, we asked for a refund after we got to our site and discovered there would not be any electric or water supply for quite a while. Apparently the water and electric lines had been cut during some construction they were doing. The staff was very nice, and gave me a refund. The owners said they were new and were trying to improve the place. It is very hilly, and the roads are not paved.
We have stayed at this park before. During this stay we were in the older part of the park and the cable tV was not operating correctly. The electric supply was not impressive, we kept blowing breakers in our unit and this has never happened at another campground. The park was noisy, and the staff apparently does not enforce the quiet hours. The water supply was very good. Hookups are at the back of the site, and the sites can be difficult to back into.
