Nice place. Friendly people.

Mary Dewys

Great place. We will be back next year.

rAY Banicki

Another great weekend. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Jim Smith

We like camping there.

Annette Donley

Nice campground with spacious grassy sites that may require additional hose and power cord to reach connections. We really enjoy group camping here a couple times a year. The restroom by the office could use some updates.

Margaret Griffith

Nice campground. We were able to check in a little early to go fishing. Spacious site but we had to pull in forward to reach the connections but there was room to do so. Restroom by the office could use some work because of puddles of water on the floor and old showers. Didn’t check out the other bathroom so it might be much nicer.

Heather Baffi

Our experience was goid. Our kot must have had a camper on it for a long period. The grass had been killed from their mat and camper, so the lot was muddy.

Bob North

We love it here!!

Linda Loomis

Great place to camp. Beautiful, clean, reasonable rates, pet friendly with spacious lot size. For me a really great part of the experience is the woodland trail that my twin cocker spaniels love. We've been several times and they can lead me right to it.


Nice clean and well taken care of campground.

Lauren Ryckman

Very nice campground with large campsites. However, the dump station was not set up very well. They have it locked and each person must get a key before dumping. This adds time with everyone locking and unlocking a pad lock each time, and it is not convenient to have to stop in the office before and after dumping. During busy times this is a bit ridiculous. It should either be unlocked, or have an employee there to ensure only campers are dumping and others are paying to dump. The day I left there was a very long line to dump. I’ve never waited to dump that long and I camp at campgrounds with hundreds of sites. A bad end to a great camping trip.

Hope Billings

Had a nice weekend here. Very clean wonderful people Would definitely come back again

Alan Thompson

Great campground. Very scenic. Friendly helpful staff. Wide, roomy spots. I liked the river frontage. The music was good. The campground reminded me of my childhood small home town.

Brian Ram

Great campgrounds. Great staff and everyone was pretty quiet. I would stay here again.

Shannon Abercrombie

Great campground. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean park. Kids enjoyed the train ride

Paul George

It was an alright time we spent four days there even though it rained on one of the days not very good that they have to lock up the dumping station and they had tournaments Outback so you couldn't go out there so there wasn't much to do

Sylvia Devries

The staff were very helpful getting the pavilion extra table and taking care of the trash. Very friendly and a lot bigger than we thought it would be. The fire place would have been nice to use if it hadn’t been to hot. We would rent this again.

Amy Loomis

I love this campground! Jennifer was very kind and helped us pick a site over the phone. Ice and wood are delivered to your site. Very clean and quiet. The pool was well maintained. Located next to the Pere Marquette River.

Marvin Boone

Bugs were worse than usual this visit.

Bruce Krieger

I was disappointed in the appearance of the park. A lot of it needed mowing and trimming. The electrical boxes are a mess and need to be cleaned.
