Only campground in town. Sites range from huge to tiny, level to unlevel. No reservations so it is a hit or miss of what you end up with. Town squeezed in as many as they could in some sections. Some sites have unobstructed views of Lake Superior, some have too much brush/trees to see the lake. Lost many of their old growth beech trees a few years ago. Doesn't appear that township has any plans on fixing up sites in this cash-cow campground. Long way to drive for a tiny spot that sits in the sun.

The owners obviously spent a fortune on hard-scape to put this campground on a slope down toward the water. It is severely lacking in green, though. I almost felt like I was in Arizona or something. Lots of pavement, rock, but not much shrubbery or trees. Staff was real friendly, facilities fantastic. View was awesome. Great Wi-Fi.

Was here fathers day weekend. This place was hopping. Management did a superb job keeping things going. A real family place. If you don't like kids, stay away. Pool could use a makeover to double its size.

Good stop over place. Didn't find the hills inside the campground to be a problem. Had one front tire off the ground to level.

Nothing special. Located in a very busy area. Main road down the middle with a lot of spots off the sides. They love pea gravel. It was too thick on many spots. Several spots are not level at all, even though the surrounding area is not real uneven. They love rules here. They need to get rid of 98% of the speed bumps. Ridiculous. 4 of them near the office. Office worker jumped out in front of us when leaving wanting to know what site we were on. Won't stay here again.

Nice no-frills campground easy off I-95. Fantastic Wi-Fi. Was able to update all firmwares, finally. Satellite friendly (DirecTV) on spots 4 and 5. Really liked the atmosphere. Lots of Spanish moss. Owner seemed to be running around all the time taking care of guests and greeting new ones. Trash picked up promptly. Rule asking campers to turn off AC when not in RV is real awkward. Owners need to accept this as a cost of running a campground and should not make campers feel guilty about busting rules for leaving AC running when gone. Remove the rule. I don't want to come back from sightseeing and have to cool down a 100deg RV. I will come back to this campground. For rail fans: This campground is real close to the Folkston Funnel. It is as close you will get for having a nice campground.

Called ahead to make a reservation in their new area. Was told they weren't needed, just come in. There was only 1 spot left when we showed up. We were in the new area. Open field, gravel spots. Full hookups. They are close to level but not really. One front tire almost off the ground. Would hate to be in this spot when it rains, as the gravel was getting real thin in areas with only dirt showing. No Wi-Fi signal in this area but real good cable.

Nicely taken care of. Premium spots are really nice, but should be for the price. Road in from US-1 (Kennett Square) is an adventure. Had some brush rubbing on side of rig.

Noisy. Manager is not friendly at all. Over priced. Do not complain, they could care less if you camp here or not. They are the only game in town and know it. Pass it up if you can.

This is our second visit. I would not camp here except family is close. Stayed in premium site this time. The sites have nice patios but overall seem very neglected. The patio is paved while the parking spot is gravel. They are huge but are starting to get overgrown with some weeds. For the price, I expect better grounds maintenance, especially in the premium sites. Roads in campgrounds are still horrible. Some long term residents.

Not worth the high cost. Site was not level. Place looks ratty, probably because so many spots were hacked out of the hillsides. Needs a dozer and several trucks of gravel to bring it back up where it should be. Cable was unusable on lower channels.

Drive in from US-1 was horrible. Roads in the campground were horrible. Some spots really close to each other, some OK width. Cable on my spot was horrible. Had to use a tripod to get Directv. Wi-Fi was real slow. Nice appearance in campground. Clean looking. Camp here because it is the only place around.

Nice manager. Low rating was for the amount of unlevel sites. I had my front left tire hanging in the air in a handicap paved spot. Went to move but my other options were just as bad. Barely any signal on Verizon but just enough to make my tethering seem like dial up with a Wilson AMP and trucker antenna. No DirecTV in my spot. Not likely in any other spots. Had to stay here as it is about the only place close to the interstate in this area. Would stay somewhere else if I could.

The lady that currently has the contract to run the place is doing a SUPERB job. The city did a fine job selecting them to run the place. Now, who is in charge of capital improvements to this place? It needs trees, trees, and more trees. The contractor stated that some RV folks don't like them because they hit their RV's. Why not hire a professional to recommend tree placements in this place. It is nothing more that a rock filled field. Placement of fire pits is horrible and need to be redone. As much money as the city makes on this place you would think they could soak a few bucks back into it.

They lost almost all of their trees due to hurrican Ivan, many years ago. They replanted with slow to grown no shade palms. Not sure why owner did not reinvest in local pines because it is sure not "gulf pines" anymore. Staff was superb. Real noisy place, almost all of it adjacent to I-10. I stayed because I had to. This would not be a vacation destination for me.

There are only four 50 amp spots in the campground and they are not on the stream. Could use some landscaping. The 50 amp spots need to be re-leveled.

You have to really want a sewer hookup to stay at this campground when visiting Savannah. Place looked junky. Lots of nice trees but owner wants short stays right in the front by the supposed unmanned office (no credit cards, cash/check only). Ugly place. Do yourself a favor and go to the state park (Skidaway Island), it's much nicer looking. No stores or anything around this place.

Real hilly. Many sites carved out of the side of the hills like you see with rice paddies in Asia. Those sites appeared to be smaller. Upper level sites (larger) are a nice climb. If you want a campground where you can walk around and meet your neighbor, forget it, this place is not for you. Almost no cell coverage in the upper area (Verizon) but campground Wi-Fi was good.

The city is not taking care of this place. Grass (really nothing but weeds) not mowed, no updates, no trees, just the same old place. The view is fantastic if you have waterfront but the rest of the place leaves much to be desired. Management is great. It would be nice if the city planted some trees and rearranged fire-pits as needed.

Great campground. The "3" is for management. They are basically clueless as to what is going on. Was told several times, no other spots available during this weekend. My specific spot was very unlevel for our wheelchair lift. When I contacted the office, they directed me to the only 2 possible sites I could switch to: both of which were occupied with campers. The office seemed clueless as to what was happening. Finally, they did send a man around to offer us a few different spots, which was great. But again, was told that ALL spots in the campground were taken. Well, we counted at least a dozen spots that were vacant the entire weekend. No loss to me, but the county is the loser in this situation, as the office is undoubtedly turning away campers thinking the campground is full. If you want a freebee, just pull in after hours, set up camp, you will be good to go. Had to return gate card upon leaving today. Office supposed to open at 8am. At 8.30am, nobody around, all locked up. They need to contract out the reservation system as the county employees cannot do it. Nice large spots, campground is great. The drive in via route 9 is terrible! Not a single gas station big enough for my 37' gasser.

It's been years, and several price increases, since we have been here. Not very happy to see the little snack bar closed. It was a major part of the atmosphere to be able to walk down and get lunch cooked. Gave it the old style Florida campground feel. Now, it's just a parking lot on the water. Way too much price wise.

Easy stop for the night. On a busy road, real noisy. I would stop here again.

I could not level easily in two different spots. By easily I mean with front tires still on ground. Power had an open ground at one site, and low voltage on other one. I would not stop here again for an overnighter as I had to unhook and get out the wood and move sites, etc.

We had a spot in upper section. It is backed by the interstate. It is real noisy. I think it is not worth the money for non Michigan residents. It is almost $50 per night when all is said and done (towing a van).

This place is nice but not so nice as to see it rate constant 10's. It is adjacent to a busy road, 321, not all the sites are level, and their new area, the so called "mountain view" section, is anything but. Some sites were plopped down in a field with no trees. There are numerous campgrounds in this area that rival Twin Creek. Perhaps the best thing going for it is its location, closest campground to Gatlinburg.

Camped here in 2005 while searching for a new home. I thought it was a fantastic campground. Big spots, quiet, level, great WI-FI (which I need to use the MLS each night). After reading some recent reviews, I thought I would drive down the road and take a look again. It hasn't changed; same great place. I think the posters of the recent negative reviews must have been confused about where they were camping.

A hidden gem in the UP. Great views of Lake Superior from the front row. Small hike down the hill to the water. Sites laid out poorly and many not very level (uneven not hilly).

Nice place. Huge sites. Will stop here again. Third visit.

This place exists only because it is the closest thing to Detroit. Had to argue repeatedly with counter person to get a grassy sunny spot instead of being put in the muddy woods. Will stop here only if I have to.

Real nice looking park but my 30 amp power voltage dropped real low. It was hot. Train noise wasn't too bad but you could hear them come by. Will stop again. Stayed here going north and south this trip.

Superb views when you have waterfront site on St. Mary's River. Great for watching Ore Boats. New system of allowing reservations is a great improvement over old system of wait for opening. WIFI has been added. Was real dry and dusty. City needs to put money back into campground with landscaping and trees.
