This is a small county park with six electric & water sites. The sites are gravel with well maintained grass in between them. The interior road is paved. There is no dump station. The electric stations have 30A and 50A receptacles, but the 50A connections are 230 Volts. Be careful not to plug into the 50A sockets! There are two each M/F showers stalls and restrooms in a separate building. They are clean, but dark and old. Verizon cell service and DirecTV is easily accessible. There is a lot of traffic on the near-by railroad tracks, both day and night. The camp host wanted the $20/day fee in cash. If you are visiting Woodburn or the surrounding area while RVing, this is the only campground around. For a couple of days, it’s OK.
This is a kid-oriented destination park. It is heavily wooded and some of the turns and tree branches require careful navigating with a big rig. The interior roads are paved with some gravel at the sites. There was 30A/water/sewer at our pull-through sites. The entry gate width is close for a large motor home. There are many park models and long-term occupants. Good Verizon service but cannot get satellite TV due to the trees. The park is clean and well maintained. There are lots of kids on bicycles. It rained while we were there, but I suspect that the swimming pool in the entrance area gets pretty busy and the area congested. There is continuously loud music at the office area. If you are looking for a placed for kids, this could be the park for you, If not, you might want to look elsewhere. We paid ~$21/night under the Passport program that includes a $3/night resort fee.
This is a great park! Paved interior roads and concrete sites. Good WiFi available at site. Good Verizon and DirecTV reception. Cable TV also included at no additional cost. Free access to pool and fitness room at casino hotel. Showers and bathrooms are very clean. Free coffee and morning newspaper in office. We paid $120 for one week in an "economy" site with water/50 amp and no sewer. There is a dump station available. Full service pull-through sites are $36-$38/night.
There 132 level, gravel sites all about 40-feet long with grass between them. There are no curbs or barriers around the sites, so longer rigs can extend into the grassy area. The interior roads are well maintained gravel and the campground area is open with few trees. All sites have good electric (ours was 50 amp) and perimeter sites also have water hook-ups. There is a dump station on site which is easily accessible, but larger rigs cannot readily turn around in the area past the dump station. They can more easily egress by backing up. The hosts are conscientious and friendly. There are two Porta-Potties in the camping area and restrooms and showers are several hundred yards away in the fairground complex. The sinks and toilets are clean and the four showers on the “mens” side are adequate, but could use some attention. DirecTV and Verizon are easily accessed. During our week-long stay, there were only a few rigs there during the week with considerably more on the week-end, but the campground was still less than half-full. This facility is ten miles from the water-front in Traverse City and is a great place to stay if you are not seeking entertainment and amenities for kids. The weekly rate is $120.
This is a modest-sized campground six-to-seven miles north of Newberry. It is an older park with some tight turns and tree limbs requiring careful negotiating with a big rig. There is water and electric on grassy sites, a dump station, and gravel interior roads. The bathrooms and showers are dated but clean. The laundry has two washers and two dryers. The dryers do not dry clothes very well, and there is a prohibition against hanging laundry outside unless attached to your rig. At registration, I was asked to read and sign an acknowledgement recognizing the fact that mosquitoes and black flies could be a problem and that there would be no refunds for early departures. The mosquitoes and black flies were not as bad as some reports, but it was difficult to spend much time outside without continually swatting incoming attacks. The Shipwreck Museum at White Fish Point is a “must see” for the area. We attended the July 4th parade in Newberry, which was entertaining. Verizon data service was good, but could not get phone service. We could get a DirecTV signal. The nightly rate reflects the Good Sam discount.
This city park is well maintained with paved/gravel interior roads. Sites are gravel/grass, some fairly large. Some sites are FHU, others only W&E. A couple of roads have tight turns for large rigs. We didn't use the showers, but one morning there was a line of five folks waiting to use them. Good satellite connection and Verizon 4G.
This is a well-maintained and friendly park. Most sites are heavily wooded and satellite TV is accessible from only a few sites; site 32 is one of them. All hook-ups worked well. I couldn't get a Verizon data signal on my iPad. The laundry room has four washers and two dryers with only one working dryer. It seems to be a kid-friendly park.
The previous 2009 review is still pretty accurate. The campground is wooded with 50A FHUs, no showers or restrooms and a few porta-potties. Sites are dirt/gravel with side-by-side configurations for both back-in and pull through. Big rigs can maneuver with some sites a little tighter getting into than others. We could not get satellite TV and only a couple of over-the-air channels. Our Verizon cell phones and air card worked well on 3G. It’s very quiet at night. Rates are $28/night for Friday & Saturday and $25 for other nights.
The Park is well maintained and the staff friendly as previously reported. However, there is a major I-90 highway construction project ongoing immediately adjacent to the campground which creates a lot of noise, both day and night. During our visit, there was a lot of noise at 3:00 AM. The exit to the campground is constrained and very congested, due to the construction. The park staff say that the construction will continue through the summer. The campground water has a very strong chlorine smell and taste. Fees are based on overall occupied length; my 40-foot motorhome and Jeep toad cost $46/night.
This is a great park, as previously reported. Showers, bathrooms and laundry room are clean and neat. Roads and sites are all concrete and grounds are well maintained. There is a RV washing bay suitable for a 40 foot motorhome and a fueling station on the grounds. There is a terrific aquatics and fitness center available for $5/day. The side by side pull through sites can get very close, depending on the slides of adjacent RVs. Back in sites are better. Cost is $201/week.
