Obviously spots are better then others. Mine was a little ways off the water. Some of the water spots where awesome. You still could enjoy views with a simple walk from any sight. My sight was large so I had no problems. My sisters sight was one of the smaller sights yet she still could open awning and have a... More

Was impressed with the campground and the sites when we first drove into the park - somewhat spacious and lots of trees for shade and privacy. However, when we turned the corner to be on the straits side of the campground with a beautiful view of the bridge, we were shocked to see how narrow and TIGHT the sites were!... More

Thanks for giving us a try. It sounds like you needed a "large" RV site but booked a "small" RV site. They are called "small" and are only 25 by 50 foot (and are labeled as such online) and are meant for people with small rigs and who need to save a few dollars. Some people (not saying you :-)...

I have to admit that I'm biased. I've stayed at this campground at least 50 times over the years. We keep coming back because they run a good park. Restrooms are always clean. Park is quiet after 10:00 PM. There are a lot of kid friendly playgrounds and plenty of roads and trails for bikes and walking. Wonderful view of... More

Great advice! Thanks for being such a loyal customer and it is people like you who understand and return our park again and again, who have enabled us to keep this beautiful piece of land available for our guests to use and enjoy for 50 years (as of 2014!). More

We take a camping trip in Michigan every year for the last 20 years and we try to stay somewhere new each time. We have had our experiences good, bad and the ugly. This last trip in July 2014 was our second stay at Mill Creek and I was compelled to write a review. Out of all the campgrounds we... More

Registration with a reservation was slow at best. You stand outside and talk to someone through a screen window. Big rig sites are very narrow and require a back-in. Primitive restrooms located within the campgrounds are basically an outhouse. Other shower/restroom facilities are near the campstore. Cannot rate those or the laundromat as we did not use them. Pool is... More

Thanks for giving us a try. Let me clear up a couple inaccuracies in your review. We do not have a laundromat. Strict waste water regulations make it impossible for us to have one. There is a nice laundromat, with a view of Fort Michilimackinac, our guests like to use right in Mackinaw City. Our roads are not al "gravel."... More

We're getting ready to head back to our favorite Michigan campground to escape the summer heat. The campground is located south of Mackinac City on Lake Huron and boasts some of the loveliest views of the bridge and Mackinaw Island. During the summer you can also see fireworks set off from St. Ignace on the Upper Peninsula. The campground accommodates... More

This campground was a recommendation to me and I was not disappointed. The place has everything you could need, for kids and adults both. It has a great view of the bridge. There is a beach. This is a place I plan to stay at again and again. They also have a shuttle to the ferry's for the Island. Great... More

This campground is a small city. 600 sites, but check-in was still quick. Great location, right on Lake Huron with a view of the bridge. The only negative is the size of the full hookup sites. All are very narrow, and with the trees and shrubs between them, it gives very little "living" space. In spite of this, we'd go... More

Thanks so much for coming to stay with us! We appreciate your good words! I just wanted to clarify that we do have large, wide and deep full hookup sites as well. You are right our Bridge View full hookups are long and narrow. Some are 60 feet deep and some are 50 foot deep all are 30 feet wide,... More

We stayed from July 8th-13th in our 42 foot Class A on site 801 after having reservations since April. The check in process was very easy and quick, considering the place is huge with several campers coming and going on a daily basis. Our site accommodated our rig and had full hook up. We had a fantastic time. I cannot... More

Thanks so much for the nice review. I think it sometimes takes someone who has traveled from far away to help some of our local campers understand what a great value our camp it. I am also pleased to hear from you and other reviewers that you found our office to be efficient. We do our best to get those... More

If you are going to stay at this campground try to get a lake front site. Those locations are beautiful. Unfortunately we did not have. Upon our arrival for 10 days we were in full hook up with very tight sites. Next to us was a family with very large appearing unfriendly dog that continued to bark as we were... More

Thank your for your review - it was very helpful and showed me that we need to improve in a couple of areas. Your stay doesn't sound very much like a vacation - so sorry about the difficulties and we hope your health is ok! If you are ever a camper at our park and you smell sewer, please tell... More
