Quaint, small park, very convenient to US-127 (which you cannot hear). However, there is traffic noise from the business loop road, seems to be worse on weekdays. Owners are very visible and involved in guiding folks in and maintaining the place. Full hook-up sites in the center (#25-39) are huge, probably the largest we've ever camped in. We may return in the future.

Pool is closed due to damage from extreme winter weather, and I could not receive a WiFi signal. Initial site assigned was much too small for our rig, so make sure to provide your rig length during the reservation process. Not many level sites in this park. It was quiet and relaxing, nice rolling terrain, lots of activities planned for kids. We probably will not return.

If they would not charge for Wi-Fi, I would rate it higher. The deluxe pull-through sites are large and fairly level. Some highway noise from the Toll Road just to the north. We visited the RV/MH Museum & Hall of Fame on a rainy day. We will probably return for a longer stay, with a 3G smartphone.

In the pines, there is only sand and no grass. In the open, there is much grass but no shade. There is an airport across the road which had crop dusters flying every morning. Don't stay near the trash compactor aft of the office. It smells. Wi-Fi was very spotty. The pond is nice to swim in with lots of floating structures. Probably would stay elsewhere if in this area again.

Can't really go wrong here. Escorted to your site, nice grass in most sites, pretty much everything said by others here is true. Additionally, they have a nice walking path loop through the woods, and this used to be a KOA years ago so the facilities are top-notch. We will likely return.

Sites were likely laid out several decades ago, so the width is tight now with slideouts. Only 1 section of full hookups. OK for a couple of nights. Access to Houghton Lake across the road for boating, but no beach here. Just your basic northern campground, with majority seasonals, and a couple of large grassy areas for playground/sports.

Very nicely maintained, excellent grass. The only quibble was the price of firewood ($6 per very small bundle -- find some on your own on Craigslist.com). Swimming pool looked very nice; a good mix of cabins and campsites, lots of places to walk (roads & trails). We will return.

A nice quiet park. A little hum from the nearby freeway, but the trees buffer the noise fairly well. Lots of open space to play and walk pets. It's been a bad year for mosquitos this year in MI, so I can't entirely fault the park, but it is surrounded by woods and there is a lake in the center, and thus they were bad for this trip. The seasonals raved about this place. Recommended.

Nice small quiet park, excellent paved walking / biking trail nearby on an old railroad grade. Owners helped park us. A nice place to spend a weekend. Nice shady full hookup sites away from the river; very scenic W/E sites right along it.

Decent park with a nice sandy beach and pond. Couldn't access Wi-fi despite being only a short distance from the office. They do let outsiders in for swimming and gatherings. Gravel roads, but not much trouble maneuvering. Camp store offers some basic items. We'll probably stay here again.

Rate reflects the "super sites." An excellent, excellent campground. Highly recommended. Owners are extremely friendly, every unit checking in gets a personal escort to their site. All streets are paved (a little tight, but never posed a problem with our rig.) Nice balance of shade and sun.

We stayed in one of the full hook-up sites near the lake (not the super deluxe pull-throughs) and are glad we did. They are much sunnier and are deeper, with fire rings in the back (a nice touch). We enjoyed this and would definitely come back. Wi-Fi signal is not a problem near the office. Excellent grass on all of the sites. Ours site was a little un-level, but most are OK.

Arrived on a rainy day, and the sites weren't as swamped with water as some earlier had indicated. Rig parking is up on somewhat elevated stony pads. Great view of the river and ships. We were self-contained so didn't sample the showers, but office and laundry were nice. Probably the best place to stay in the Sault area, with very reasonable rates.

Spacious, scenic park. But overpriced, should be $10/night less since it needs more amenities. Has no pool, no cable TV, and no restrooms or showers yet. Extremely quiet and lots of places to walk your pets. Liked the large sites. Might stay again if it is "right-priced."

It is a very relaxing & quiet park, about 80% seasonal, the weekender sites are all pull-through. They do allow for locals to fish in the quarry, so be aware there will be some outsiders (no security or gate). Very nice staff. They need to bring this park up to date to garner a higher rating (no Wi-Fi, website hasn't been updated in 4 yrs, no cable). I would probably return for another weekend.

Campground is approx 80% seasonal, lots of families, kids, golf carts. Quieted down pretty well at night. Roads are dirt (dusty) and extremely narrow; you have to pull off the road when other cars pass, thus advanced planning is necessary when towing a rig. This also makes it a challenge to back into a site with the seasonals all around. Most dissatisfied with the bathrooms away from the showerhouse, one of them was disgusting and not at all usable. Plan on a far walk to the clean one if your site is in the outer reaches. I don't see us returning.

We stayed on one of their "Giant RV" sites which were really ex-mobile home sites. They were large sites but we had some single-wides around us. Labor Day weekend featured some live music, and ice cream for the kids. A hollowed clearing area was nice to play sports. Bathrooms were large and clean. Wi-Fi access wasn't so hot, but we were in the back corner of the grounds.

We really liked this campground. The owners were visible and friendly, very involved with activities they hold. Probably about 60% seasonals, everyone was very friendly. A nice variety of campsites (waterfront, pull through, etc.) The one drawback was the plastic tiling factory across the road, the forklifts outside there were working non-stop during one Saturday overnight with their noisy backup beepers. Hopefully that doesn't occur every weekend. We intend to return for 2010 though.

This park was a good value, close to Newberry but you felt out away from it all. Wi-Fi service wasn't good at our site. They are up-front about it and tell you that moving closer to the office area will improve it, so we had to use a closer picnic table to access. Lots of hiking/nature trails, I almost got lost on them! There is a large playground for kids, nice shower house / bathrooms. A good way to experience the quiet solitude of the Upper Peninsula.

A very quiet park, probably about half seasonal sites. We enjoyed the walking paths. The owners were very pleasant and visible. There are not as many activities as other campgrounds. The athrooms were a little primitive, and could use an update.

A nice state park right on Lake Superior. When we stayed a cold front had just come through, and the wind really howled off the lake, so weather should be a consideration for your visit. Shower house and bathrooms are very nice, individual showers kept very clean. All paved streets, nice long beach to walk on. Lots of variety on campsites, the website is very descriptive on size and layout.
