We were fortunate to get a site since we did not have reservations. This is a nice park for families. Lots to do, several pools and even a flowing river feature. Well maintained. Highly recommend if you have a family.
This is a membership park that allows non-members (me) to stay if there are open spaces. Overall, this is a very well maintained facility with numerous amenities. I did find out that this is the nicest park in the KM system. I would certainly stay there again. The rate I paid reflects a Good Sam discount (which I was surprised to receive). However, they charge an electricity usage per night - in this case $2.17 during a cool period so I did not need to run the A/C.
I normally bypass KOA parks because of their high rates. We chose this KOA based on the recommendation of the first park we went to that was full. This park is extremely well maintained. I have nothing but praise for the condition and layout of the park. After seeing the other parks in the Cheyenne are, This is where I would stay as my first pick. The rate I paid includes tax and a credit for not hooking up to their sewer.
Overall a good park. Very windy. The owners are nice with good senses of humor. They are located right next to the very good Colonial Steakhouse if you are looking for a good meal. The actual RV site was satisfactory - nothing to write home about. However, the condition of the rest of the park amenities was excellent. The pool and hot tubs were in good repair. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
We stayed for two nights. The owners are fairly new but the park is not. There is a lot of needed upkeep to the sites and buildings as they seem to have been let go in anticipation of the sale. The owners are pleasant. The park is OK if you use it only for an overnight stop or a base for activities as we did. You really do not have many options in this part of Michigan as it is far from major thoroughfares. The park has promise if the owners spend the time and money to bring the place up to what it could be.
This was my second stay. The office staff was very nice, knowledgeable, and friendly. It appears that some of the pads have been updated. Very level with good access. This is a very popular park in NE Portland and was nearly full during my stay even this late in the year. Wi-Fi worked better this year. The only negative I have to say is that the cable TV degraded once the heavy rains started. Might have been my connections but I was not going out in the deluge to check. I will definitely return but will make sure that I reserve a place next time. I was almost turned away even though I checked in at 3:30.
Gravel lot park right next to highway. No cable TV or WiFi. We stayed 3 nights using this as a central point. Satisfactory stop over spot. Lots of highway noise, no restrooms, and about 3 miles from town.
Good for a single night. A bit too much freeway noise. Office staff seemed more interested in selling gift items than informing me of the WiFi access, cable TV channel listings, location of the restrooms, providing a park layout sheet, etc. I would look for a quieter park next time.
Site was fairly level. Wi-Fi and cable were excellent. Hosts were very friendly. Were here on the weekend of a college football game but there was no rowdiness. Campground location is right next to the freeway so there was some noise. There appeared to be some very, very long term residents at some adjacent sites given the semi permanent nature of their sites. Would stay here again if I was in Lincoln.
Average facility. The WiFi was only functional at the deck adjacent to the office. Our 37' long fifth wheel and truck did not completely fit into the pull through site. Fortunately the sites are wide enough to allow us to park at a diagonal and make do. There is a RR track very close nearby with very loud trains that interrupted our sleep. The hosts were OK but not overly friendly. There was no escort to the site. The sewer connection drain holes are crushed 2 liter plastic pop bottles. Somewhat uneven sites. In a pinch stay here, but you might want to look elsewhere if you have the time.
This was our second stay at this campground. It is still a 10+ campground. The sites are large, grassy and fairly flat. The owners are extremely friendly. The free WiFi was exceptional. The facility could not be cleaner or better maintained. We come through here each year at this time and would not camp anyplace else. If you are a dog lover, make sure and spend some time with Missy. She will love you to death.
Bottom line: this is an adequate park with no frills. They have taken a very small area and managed to cram in the maximum number of sites. Read the other reviews for details of the odd layout. I arrived in my fifth wheel dreading the possible need to parallel park the rig. Not a concern as they make every effort to fill the sites in a clockwise manner to allow the next rig to simply drive into the space. Make sure when checking in that the site they give you will hold your full rig. The location is right between Hwy 2 (lots of diesel semi trucks) and the RR tracks. We were dreading not being able to sleep but somehow the noises were much less after dark and sleeping was not an issue. This is the best park in town and was very full during the 2 nights we stayed here.
Extremely well maintained facility. The hosts were very friendly and provided an escort to the campsite. We had the option of 30 or 50 amp (in case you want to save a few dollars). The hosts recommended a home cooked, well priced, large portions, and quality food: The OK Cafe. They were spot on with their recommendation. There are 30 acres of hiking trails in the woods. The location was away from the freeway and very quiet for sleeping. This is a first rate campground.
Very large and congested park: too expensive for amenities offered. Restrooms and showers impeccable. Staff very friendly. This park considers itself to be a resort because of the proximity to the lake and availability of rental paddleboats, etc. Not a relaxing park due to high traffic, dogs, and teenagers. However, the nearby Cedars floating restaurant is an excellent fishhouse. They also serve the finest chocolate cake we have either eaten in our 62 years of life. Absolutely wonderful meal and cake. Would not stay at Blackwells again but would frequent the Cedars restaurant.
The park is a bit cramped. The sites and roads are uneven gravel and in need of maintenance. The wifi was good. Only a few Canadian tv stations available - no cable tv. The owners are very friendly and there are a lot of nice wood carvings. The price for the park is in line with the services provided. There was never any soap in either the men's or women's restrooms during the 3 nights we stayed there. You only get 6 minutes of shower water for $1.00 so you had better hurry when showering.
Gravel roads and sites. Older park with a lot of long term rigs staying there. Some even had wooden decks and storage sheds. Wi-Fi was fast and worked well. The owners are friendly. Good central location to Ocean Shores, Westport, and ocean beaches.
Use a free night camping pass we received when we purchased our trailer. Looking for trees - look elsewhere. This was the first park in the KM Resorts system and it shows. Got accosted by the on-site high pressure sales person trying to sell us a membership in KM plus CC or RPI. The bottom line was that they wanted over $5,250 for the first year with annual dues of $350 TO KM Resorts plus the annual RPI dues. We didn't like the park or the sales tactics so we passed.
This park suffers a bit from age - a bit long in the tooth. Our site was not even close to level. The wireless Wi-Fi is free and very high speed. The staff was very courteous. The sites are a bit too close together. The price ($40 before Good Sam discount)is too high for what you get. Good access to I-84 coming from east or west. If you are looking for a RV "motel" a bit east of Portland, this may fill your needs.
Nightly rate was with a 30% off coupon. Facility is very well maintained. The staff is friendly. Not what I would call a resort. Not much to do at the facility except sleep and indulge in their modest continental breakfast. Nice touches are: A free daily (not Sunday) newspaper delivered to your site. They have a fairly robust free DVD lending library. They have some necessity type supplies available for purchase.
