I'm not sure where the last poster actually stayed but it clearly wasn't here. This place is a pit. They are charging $25 Passport America which implies $50 for a regular site. The roads are definitely not paved, they are dirt, the sites are dirt with tiny patches of dying grass in the small spaces between each one. The sites are full of trash and cigarette butts. They are crammed one on top of another and back to back. This is by far the worst campground we have stayed in during 4 years of full time RVing. I would never stay here again and would leave immediately if it weren't a week-end and I can't find anywhere else to go.
We loved our six night stay here and would have stayed longer if we could. The rate reflects a senior discount. I never give more than a 7 usually to a park with electricity that does not have water but this was just such a great place. The one drawback is that it is 10 miles from the rest of Sleeping Bear Dunes national seashore and there are few trails here although there is the shallow Platte river to canoe or kayak. Would definitely return.
Our rate reflects a senior discount and does not include the daily use fee as we bought a year park pass to cover that. I never rate a park without water higher than a 7. This would have been a wonderful park had the mosquitoes not been so bad. We killed hundreds inside our motorhome and had to leave after two nights. They were very nice and gave us a refund of our other two nights. We would come back again as the park is excellent but only when the mosquitoes are down - the fall???
We very much enjoyed our stay in this municipal park. Everything is low key. Lake Superior is just steps away and they have steps down to the beach. Gorgeous sunsets. Showers are coin operated. You can bike to town - 1 grocery, 4 restaurants and an outdoor store. Right at the eastern edge of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
The Park is beautiful and access to the water is fabulous BUT there are so very big draw backs everyone should be aware of. We have camped here three times now over the past 3 years, in November and December and January always hoping things would improve. But they have not. The smallest problem is that they advertise that they have washers and dryers but only two washers are in working condition for the entire campground. We have been assured that the company knows they are broken and in over 5 years have never fixed them. A much bigger problems are the bugs and the electric system. The noseeums are impossible and if you are in a motor home or trailer, the electricity is dangerous. We have a monitoring system on our coach and it cuts off when the electricity gets dangerously low for appliances including AC. This happens constantly so using a microwave or AC is pretty seriously impossible. Most folks have no idea they are damaging their equipment since they have no sensor. There is no notice of such low voltage throughout the park on any website including Reserve America. There is a small notice at the campground check in desk which it is easy to miss. Buyer beware. We won't be returning. With the bugs and limited AC it is just not fun. You can't stay on the ocean front 24/7 which is "usually" bug free.
The previous review has given an accurate description of the details. We have stopped here many times since new owner and his family bought the campground a few years ago. We have always found it to be excellent. They try very hard to meet everyone's needs. We enjoy the chickens, free range eggs $3.50 a dozen, and the friendly welcoming atmosphere. They often have community potlucks as they are doing for Thanksgiving this year. We can't recommend it highly enough. Easy in, easy out, FHU pull throughs right off of I-95 at exit 7.
We stayed here over night. The campground owner is quite nice but the place is very run down and there are a lot of permanent units. It is RIGHT by I-95 and you see it and hear it from your coach although you have to drive a ways off the exit to get to the campground. You sort of drive down and around and come back right next to the interstate. Not sure I'd stay here again. I can rearrange my travel to stop at nicer quieter spots.
It's a parking lot just off of I-95 and fine for an over night except for the surly person at the desk who acts as though he could care less whether you stay there or not. If you plan to use Passport America be sure you read the latest restrictions since the website said PPA Sun-Thursday but when we got there on a Thursday we were told nope and when I complained about what was on the website I was told well they've changed their minds. I'll only stay there again if I have no choice. It's a fine no frills facility but the staff is horrid. At least the sites are level even in the cheap seats which we had and are gravel not paved.
This rate reflects Passport America. I would have rated this campground a 10 for the wonderful service of the family who has owned it for 60 years. If you are not a light sleeper this is definitely the place to stay when visiting Colonial Williamsburg. They have a shuttle at the gate so you do not have to drive you car and access to discount tickets. All that said, the campground is small (who cares if you are in Williamsburg all day), sites are narrow so be sure you can get your slides open before you settle in. But the worst thing is the trains going about 6' from the back of your rig on one side of the campground. They run very 2 to 3 hours and actually shook our coach. We were in the cheap seats so perhaps if I'd paid more to be on the other side of the campground drive, where I would back up to the main road instead, it might have been better. If you sleep like a rock this is the place for you. Every other place I checked was MUCH farther away to drive every day and much more expensive with fees.
We had to be here as it was the best rate we could find to access a Boston Medical facility. The campground is big, the sites are small, and lots of permanents who drive their cars in and out a lot even late at night. Lots of week-end noise party type things in their pavilion. Not a place we would have chosen but good for a certain type of camper. We did kayak the Exeter river which was very nice. People in the office were friendly, but there was no one maintaining order in the large campground. Good overnight but not for 5 days.
I spent two weeks in Flamingo and loved it it. It's miles from anything. 38 miles to food grocery so come prepared although there is a small restaurant in the visitor center area. Beautiful sunrises when the birds come flying in for the day. Fabulous kayaking. The only one problem for me was that I could not work there as AT&T had the only cell service. So unless they have gotten Verizon in the past year it's a bummer for me. Love the place.
