We have visited every park within a 100 mile radius to find this park. From the start the owner Jim was the draw. Jim a friendly guy made us feel at home instantly. This coming year will be our 3rd and we have really enjoyed the peacefulness. The Wild Cherry Resort is spotless, quiet and near many options to stay... More

This place maybe good for RV camper but absolutely terrible for car or tent camper. We're touring cycles and stop here for one night. No washroom, shower room or even drinking water. Camping site was dirty and not enough maintain.

Tent camping is rustic. In the woods. We provide porta johns , drinking water, firewood, and a primitive shower with hot water. We provide the basics and explain to everyone that we have a rustic camp sites... Most people like sleeping in the woods. More

I agree with the reviewers complaining about no pool, no cable and a limited playground for kids. However, we are semi retired, travel in a motor home and have two small dogs. The park managers have never complained about our dogs or even mentioned a word about where to walk them. The park is quiet with a well maintained lawn... More

Very clean, that is the beat I can say. No bath facilities, no pool, no play area for kids. Very expensive for not providing anything. No cable, says pet friendly but ask you not to walk them around your camp site, they ask you to walk your dog in tall unmowed grass that has flea and tics.

They promote an RV Resort, however, no bathrooms, no pool, they told us we could not bring our dog because he was too big. When we got here there were bigger dogs. ours is a lab. We spent $100 to board our dog at home. They said we had a lake lot, but it's a tiny pond. They say they... More

Sorry about your disappointment. In regard to dogs we do set some regulations regarding size and breed. But we also make exceptions if the dog owner asks, which would have been granted regarding a lab. Our park is located is in the heart of Leelanau County, 15 miles from Traverse City, or about a 20 minute drive. All of our... More

What a joke this place was. We rented the yurt with the hope it would be a nice difference from a tent. Turns out a tent would have been better. There was holes in the ceiling where bugs could fly in. The cob webs hadn't been cleaned in months maybe even years. We tried to tell the owners and all... More

I'm not quite sure what these quests were expecting or looking for. The Mongolian Yurt is located in the woods and has a sky light that when closed rest on the ceiling. Bugs cannot fly in when closed as it was at the time of their arrival.. No holes in the ceiling. The lake can be seen on our web... More

We planned a 4th of July vacation in February '13. I emailed the resort because they have rules regarding what type of trailer and pets you can bring. They seemed very accommodating and friendly to speak to when I called to place the reservation. That is was the last pleasant encounter we had. We were given a nice big site... More

We have guest that hate fire pits and all the smoke and we have guest that won't camp without one. My advice is to make sure when you book your site you are booking a site with a fire pit. Many upscale RV campgrounds today don't have "any" sites with fire pits. 95% of our sites are 75 feet long... More

Upon arrival everyone was very friendly. Our site didn't have a fire pit so they found one for us and delivered it along with wood to our site. Our campsite was located on the top loop of the park right near the entrance. It was level and had a nice cement pad. Hook ups were convenient. Even though we were... More

We just returned from a long weekend at Wild Cherry Resort. We were pleased with the campground and will stay there again. The location is unbeatable. We did the wine trail to about 6 wineries and our favorite was right at the entrance to the campground! 45 North Winery was great. Really good wine, reasonable prices, friendly service and the...

My wife and I took a risk and camped here on our first anniversary, because of its proximity to Leland and Suttons Bay. We're campers, so we wanted to tent camp. We were pleasantly surprised that our wooded tent site had a smooth patch of sand for the tent, a picnic table, and a log bench. The porta-potty was very... More
