This is an amazing RV resort. Beautiful large concrete pads, great cable, free internet, groomed lawns! The management was super friendly. The seasonal owners were great friendly and guided us to the best eateries and sites to see. All I can say is we are coming back. Can't wait till next year! Oh they also love our dog too! Great...

My wife and I have been traveling the country for over 15 years now from coast to coast and we have never had an experience like we had at this property. From the moment we entered the park we felt unwelcomed. The park has "owners" that live in the park for half the year, which includes patio furniture, lawnmowers, and... More

Kathy S, Owner at Traverse Bay RV Resort, responded to this review

Trip Advisor exists for the purpose of reviewing businesses. Whether or not a guest was able to get along with residents in a Resort should hold no bearing on the business itself. Your review stated that there were "spies" watching you and reporting you to the office. Yes, we do have people once a day driving around with clipboards to... More

I cannot argue the quiet and pretty setting - very tranquil. But I do agree with a previous reviewer that the "owners" dictate the unwelcoming atmosphere. We felt as though we were being watched often. The owners have every right to care about their "neighborhood" but then this resort should not lend itself to outside rentals. They should remove themselves... More

This RV resort is beautifully maintained. The amenities are abundant. Very well thought out down to the smallest detail. Like others that have stayed here, we were disappointed in the interment service. Kind of a pain. Overall. Just gorgeous.. People are extremely nice and helpful. Anxious for our friends to join us next week.

This is a lovely resort with, for the most part, first class amenities. People are nice, scenery is spectacular and the surrounding Traverse City area is one of the most exciting in northern Michigan with tons of stuff to do and experience throughout the summer and early fall months. The only real criticism we have, and it is a big... More

This resort has great amenities and is so well maintained. It is peaceful yet close to many attractions if you prefer activity. The clubhouse and pool are beautiful. Each section has its own bath house and gym. You will not regret staying here, in fact, you probably won't want to leave.

We loved it so much we bought a lot and plan to spend next summer here. Park is clean, people are friendly, lots of adult... More

We own a large RV and since this was our first time in the Traverse City area I wanted a park that was capable of meeting our size and electrical needs. The place is great. Sites a large with all the necessary hook ups. We enjoyed the swimming pool which is spotless and the hot tub too. The park is... More

This is a beautiful RV resort. Well manicured, beautiful landscaping. This park is more suited to owners with top of the line RV's. Perfectly situated for all the Traverse City/ Bay Area including Leelanau Peninsular, Sleeping Bay National Park and the sand dunes.

This campground is absolutely beautiful....we stayed here with our 5 year old daughter and although it is geared to older people, this is where our daughter learned to ride a bike! They have wonderful paved level roads, spacious sites with concrete pads and table, beautiful shower houses and laundry facilities, heated pool, and they have a free business center. The... More
