Stayed here during labor day weekend, and the campground was probably half full overall. I will say if you need a last minute place to stay during this weekend, then stay here because they have over 600 campsites and I am under the impression that a lot of these sites are only used once per year if that. Well the non-electric sites anyway, in which we stayed in a tent. The site itself was only $25 per night this whole weekend which is a good deal compared to the $200 per night motel rooms you will pay that weekend, and normally these sites are about $10/night. That being said it is a very affordable campground. Our campsite was actually quite large too, we had 2 tents on it with a lot of privacy. Also someone mentioned of it being crowded but I stayed here during probably the busiest weekend in Mackinaw area and the campground wasn't crowded at all, at least not in the area we stayed (super saver, no hook-up). And there were still a lot of empty campsites. Now to why I'm giving a slightly lower rating - first the sites do not have a fire pit, at least most of them don't. You have to get a pan from the store, and I was rudely told on the phone I had to buy firewood from them to get a fire pit. Which was fine, ok, but the fire pan is very small, and can only hold about 4 pieces of wood. Next they say all fires must be out by midnight. Normally we would get back to the campsite around 11pm and that only left an hour for a fire. We kept ours longer and no one came by to yell at us though, probably because we were way out in the rustic area. The place also double charged me for the extra adults and extra vehicle we had on our campsite. When I checked in, I asked what the additional charge was and was told that it is just a balance on the account. I later realized they charged me twice for the extra adult and vehicle, in which I had a credit put back without a problem. Last, our campsite was probably 5-10 minutes walk from the nearest restroom and shower. I understand we were in the super saver area so no complaints really. I'd just give the entire experience an average rating, there was nothing that I completely loved but didn't really hate any part of the experience either. I would stay here again if I was in the area because of the very reasonable prices.
