This campground is nicely kept. There were activities for the kids that run all day during the week. The pool is great for kids (maximum depth 5 feet). The pool enclosure was very warm (in the high 80s) when you weren't swimming. You could walk to the Main Street in Frankenmuth, although we didn't since the temperature was about 95. The park was nearly empty when we were there, but standard sites would be tight if you had neighbors.
The campground is quick to get to; just a bit west of US 131. There is a small Camping World store just on the other side of 131 and a CAT scale nearby if you want to weigh your rig. The grounds are well maintained. They have a new playground for the kids, that our 3-year-old enjoyed. The pool area is clean. We stayed at one of the premium sites which are at the front of the campground with full hookups and lots of shade. The sites were tight, however, with all the big-rigs that were here. The staff wasn't incredibly friendly, but not rude either. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
We stayed here during the pre-season period, before the water park opened for the year. The swimming pool (not the wave pool) was open. Splash Canyon is in its third season now. There are mostly seasonal sites around the perimeter of the campground. Overnight sites are in the middle of the campground. The park is well maintained. There is a security gate. The office closes at 4 PM during the pre-season, and there will be no one to let you through the gate after 4 PM, so be sure to get an access card for the gate. The sites have some privacy, but the trees that have been planted have not grown very tall yet.
The park grounds themselves seem fine. The roads are a bit rough. It’s close to the Henry Ford Museum. However, I can’t give a single star to this campground because of their dishonest advertising and business practices. The problem we had is that we booked an advertised “Two-night Henry Ford Package” that included tickets to the Henry Ford Museum. After driving 150 miles to the campground, when checking in we were told there we no more tickets available, despite us having reserved the “package” a week in advance. The staff were completely unapologetic about this. They seemed to think it’s fine to bait people to come to the campground on the basis of a “package” deal, when in fact there is no package at all—they just sell tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. If they run out, they figure that’s your problem. After some discussion, the staff agreed to credit my account for the difference in cost of tickets at their advertised discounted price and the tickets I needed to buy myself at the museum. Then, after I bought the tickets at the museum, they changed their story and denied ever agreeing to credit my account. If you’re visiting the Henry Ford, save your money and frustration. Stay somewhere else.
This is a very well kept family campground. It doesn't have everything, but everything it has is excellent. This is an example of a campground where the details are taken care of. Directional signage is very clear and well maintained, both leading to the gate and within the park. The gravel roads are well mainained. The trees are trimmed back from the roads. The gravel sites are level. Each site has its own power post and water tap (they aren't shared). The location is very convenient to attractions in the Tobermory area. The sites are wooded and private.
We camped in the Colborne section of the campground. It was quiet even though it was a long weekend. The sites are nicely spaced with trees for privacy from your neighbours, but sites may be located directly across the road. The park is clean and well maintained. The beach is large and sandy. There are concerts and dances held in a renovated barn on site.
The campground is conveniently close to Grand Rapids. The campground roads are very rough and in poor condition. There is limited parking at the check-in area. The "lake" is actually a pond, and while there is a small beach area the water is not what we consider suitable for swimming in. There is free Wi-fi and it worked well. The owners escort you to your site and give you directions while you back in. The owners are friendly and helpful.
Most sites are seasonal. There are only a few overnight sites. Good facilities. There are two swimming pools with lifeguard and the swimming pools are well maintained. Many organized activities for children and adults. Quiet hours are strictly enforced. The entrance road has a narrow one-lane bridge barely wide enough for a trailer. Roads are rough, narrow and winding, and tree branches are poorly trimmed in many areas. The access road to the Buffalo section of the campground is very overgrown with trees.
MacGregor Point Provincial Park has nice large, treed sites. The sites are spaced well apart. We camped in site 334 and our friends camped in site 335. These sites are intended for two families camping together. They are connected sites, but still a good size. There are excellent bike trails at this Provincial Park.
