This is a nice and clean traditional campground. The positives are this KOA has beautiful mature trees, a tennis court, a basketball court, a nice swimming pool, a fishing pond, a playground, a jumping pillow, and nice people at the desk. It has good WiFi and the best cable reception I have ever seen at a campground. The negatives are no satellite reception because of the trees, the closest town is 6 miles away, and there is a little road noise. The positives out weigh the negatives at this campground.
There is not much to offer in quality RV parks in the Daytona Beach area. This is the best one I have found. It has a fantastic pool, strong Internet (fee-based) basketball court, shuffleboard, tennis court and more. I parked on a cement pad in the first circle around the club house. The staff is nice and helpful. Don't let the negative reviews keep you away, because this is the best park in the area.
Using my rating system of possible 4 for "view", 3 for "facilities", 3 for "location", and 1 for "staff friendliness", I give this park a 7. The campground is under a beautiful canapé of trees, so satellite use is unlikely. They do have decent cable, however. The WiFi was practically useless from our sight. The streets are dirt, so dust is a problem. On the other hand, I love parking on grass rather than dirt, and I was able to do that here. The main positive is the owners were wonderful. I could tell they really care about their park. They asked if we were happy several times. I would stay here again.
Unbelievable views..the Mackinac Bridge and Island are out your front window. And swimming in Lake Huron is 50 feet away. This is a fantastic traditional campground. If you want cement pads vs grass or gravel, forget it. But, you can not do better than this family campground for relaxing and sitting by the lake. It is Northern Michigan in all it's glory!
What can you say? There are very few flaws in this campground: full 50 amp hookups, 50 channel cable TV, WI-FI, easy satellite reception, cement pads, beautiful landscaping, and Michigan Adventure Amusement Park across the street. I can come up with a few personal preferences including more shade trees and a town nearby, but the park is a spectacular modestly priced high end campground. We will return.
This campground is either very good or very bad. The good: There is much to do. There is a modestly priced and very nice indoor water park, outside horse back riding, a weekly rodeo and pig roast, several restaurants, and a beautiful golf course. The bad: The restaurants and golf are quite expensive. And, the campground is heavily wooded, making it very difficult for a 43 foot RV like mine to maneuver. There is no WIFI and no cable. It is impossible to get satellite reception. Also, the cell phone coverage is poor. And, most of all, the trees need to be trimmed. It is very frustrating and maddening to scratch up your RV just getting in and out of a campground. This place is so close to being great. There is even a a flat open spot just outside the campground, that could be set up for higher end RV's. If Double JJ wants to bring in higher end campers for their expensive golf and food, they need some higher end camping spots. Until then, it is unlikely we will return.
Nice park..probably as nice as there is in Daytona Beach. The good is the cost and a nice pool. The bad is there is very little happening here. You are parked like sardines and most people here are full time residents. The owners don't seem very welcoming. There is nothing extremely wrong with this park, but nothing to pull me back, other than the lack of better alternatives in the area.
Using my rating system of possible 4 for "view", 3 for "facilities", 3 for "location", and 1 for "staff friendliness"... I give this park a 5. The location is great, near the boats to Mackinac Island and the town of St. Ignace. That elderly couple running the park are great. The facilities, however are poor. I came within inches of hitting a tree when pulling in because everything is so tight on the roads. The fuse blew on a hot day with our 3 dogs inside, and us gone for the day. And i got a 30 amp site when i asked for 50. If you go to this park, arrive in daylight.
This is a great location to explore Devils Tower. It is a KOA with all the features you could want. The only downside might be a smallish pool and sufficient laundry facilities. The campground store is terrific.
Under relatively newer ownership. This is a quiet campground with wonderful hosts. I'm excited to see what this campground can become. We stayed here versus West Yellowstone because it tends to be 10-15 degrees warmer in Red Lodge than West Yellowstone. And that really matters in June.
I'm surprised that no one has ever reviewed this campground because it's a special one. While it's very quiet and wooded, it has all the amenities. Two nice swimming pools, a cafe, a go cart track at the entrance and it is just down the street from the quaint little town of Pentwter. I would have given it a 10, but the Wi-Fi was marginal, but hey, it was free. If you are looking for a quiet park by Lake Michigan with stuff for the kids or grand kids to do, this might be the one for you.
This is a big campground with all kinds of activities for kids. I like the older section better than the new tree-less, big rig, lake front, section that is like parking on a gravel parking lot. The owners are nice, and it is well maintained. It has a great little restaurant that serves $7.99 full lobsters. I recommend the Heath Crunch ice cream.
This is a very nice family KOA... the best in Michigan. There is plenty to do for the kids... pools, batting cages, go-carts, mini-golf, bumper boats, and ice cream stand, and much more. The campground is situated in beautiful mature trees and has both wooded and open sites. The only possible negative is that your kids will be asking for money all the time. It would be better if there was a daily or weekly fee for all the recreational facilities. The wifi worked well but the cable was weak. We will return this summer again.
