Quiet, shaded campground cut into the pine covered hills over the town of Clinton. Generous sites, lovely views, nice campground to walk in, very nice owners. A bit off the road and hard to find if headed south, clear signage when headed north. Nicest option in town.
I was disappointed. The area we were in was adjacent to the highway, in a four rig buddy site with a giant fire pit in the center. The sites were mostly gray dirt separated by large concrete highway dividers, giving it the feel of a truck stop. Lots of fire wood was available adjacent to a hulk of an abandoned two story building “yet to be completed”. The front area by the office is a little nicer. Very glad we didn’t stay longer.
Of 5 "overnight" pull throughs (30A only) only one had a functioning water spigot, and the plug was broken on that site. Do yourself a favor and keep rolling. Nice managers, it is a shame they don't do repairs or can't find a decent park to manage.
Small, very family friendly KOA. Some sites are narrow, the turns are tight. It's a bit pricey for off season, some pull throughs without sewer and all pull-throughs are "buddy sites" which I hate. Has a very nice frisbee golf course and nature trail.
A newer park with all pull-through sites, most gravel, 18 paved. Mostly long term sites on the N along the freeway, short term and overnight on the S (the paved sites). The south side is adjacent to a stable and riding school. If you are here for more than an overnight, you notice the stable (earlier if the wind is blowing in the right direction) along with the increase in the fly population. Rate listed reflects the weekly rate.
Mixture of long term, transient, and RV club guests. They have a special RV club area and extra club room, a real nice idea. We found no power or water issues. No freeway noise (and our hearing is intact). Clean. A train runs through the valley occasionally, but not unpleasant. Rate reflects weekly rate.
Pulled in on a Thursday in August at 3:30 PM. (No listed activities at fairground until Saturday.) Only 2 sites available, water only (no electric). Most units seemed to be permanent and not well maintained. Beware if you think this is a convenient stop.
I was prepared for tight, muddy after it rains, no sewer, no wi-fi, PA rate, nice folks... thanks to previous reviews. In addition I found 30amp service with 50amp plugs (labeled as 50amp site, with extra charge; you can fool some of the people, I guess. We changed sites), no breakers at the site, and pay showers (for WATER, not just hot water). There were three male showers for 130 sites (lots of insects in shower room). That is my definition of “nickel and dimeing”. One dump station within the park, surrounded by sites.
From their web site: We will not be taking any reservations for this season. Our business plan has changed and we are honoring our contracts with existing full season campers from 08'. Therefore we will have no daily, weekly or monthly camping for 09'.
Beware, reserving on their web site for the appropriate size site does not guarantee that your rig will fit (our did not) and the fine for "over the line" is $75. We did get to change sites as it was before their season, but if they were full, you would have a problem. Also know that a permit is required for both vehicles in Michigan (we had to tell the clerk about the $6 toad permit), rate listed reflects the cost of the permits. Nice beach park once you get past all the potential hassle. The new shower house is very nice and is kept clean.
The park has deep sites of standard width. Sites (in most cases) are on sand/grass. It's a large park, so there is plenty of room to go for a walk. Warning: when we were here the water was the "hardest" we have ever seen. Long term residents have water softener systems. The water stained all of our dishes and appliances, I have to wonder what it does to water heaters.
Pros: This park has nice owners; it's a nice town; has a good rate and good hook-ups. Cons: Was hard to find the park's entry; and was badly in need of fresh gravel on all the park roads. Rate reflects weekly rate.
Park has an old section, a less-old section, and a new section, closer to the entry. We were in the new section, which has generous pull-through sites, level, well laid out, quiet. Has nice, friendly owners. Has nice landscaping and flowers in park. We would stay here again.
Pluses: Lovely park next to lake, nice sites, good hook-ups, level pads, adjacent to "day use park" and 2 mile bike/walking trail. Minuses: $5 entry charge on top of nightly rate ($3 day/$5 season), staffed by county employees who are fee takers only, know nothing about RV's and really don't seem to care, seasonal employees who do not even seem to know much about the park. Very nice in the off season, can't speak for in season, (and don't care to be there then).
This park has decent roads, spacious sites and is adjacent to a 9-hole golf course ($11/round). Sites are mostly grass on sand, some with shell drives, small concrete pads, very few picnic tables. Lots of room to go for a walk on the grounds. Verizon card works well. They have planned activities in the winter. It's 20 minutes to the nearest town.
This is a snowbird park with a mixture of mobile homes, park models, and RV sites. Cliquey crowd: we were not even given a schedule of activities until we asked. Paved apron and patio, no picnic tables. Warning!!! The pads are composed of a non-compacted fine material, with the power way back at end of the site. With the manager’s help we parked, started to sink, couldn’t move. He said, “Now it will cost $250 to get someone to pull you out, unless you have one of them services.” Fortunately Coach-Net came through. (Their first question was, “Are you safe?”) While we were waiting, all of the gawkers told us that this happens a couple of times a season. I cannot recommend this park for any RV that weighs more than 16,000 lbs.
