“Hidden Gem of Traverse Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2009

The campground in this park is fabulous. The sites were well spaced & very private. The shower / bathrooms were some of the cleanest we have ever encountered [ as clean as most hotels .. which is unusual for a camping experience ]. The staff were all friendly and helpful & delivered the purchased firewood to our site. Ice is also available. You are on Elk Lake which is 5 miles to Traverse City and all the area attractions. A casino is a few miles away if you want some nightlife. The park is at the end of a 2 mile dirt road. So don't bring your nice car; it will get dirty. Instead, bring the canoe and launch it at the boat ramp. The lake is beautiful in the early morning fog. We will definitely be back !!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2008

We camped at this township campground in August 2008.

Positives:
Clean bathrooms - we saw extensive cleaning occur in the evening - I believe they clean twice a day. We did not shower, but the shower facilities looked clean as well.

Spacious sites - there was plenty of room on our site for our two cars and two tents with lots of room to spare.

They deliver firewood (not free) to your campsite. Also sell ice.

Staff is very attentive - clearing trash, cigarette butts, etc.

Boat launch onto beautiful Elk Lake.

Negatives:
If you have two adult couples sharing a site, you have to pay two camping fees plus two reservation fees. If the two adult couples choose to get two sites instead of one, same price. Crazy - should be some discount for sharing a site.

No beach. You can swim near the boat launch, but not recommended.

Map of sites makes it look like sites are far apart between loops when in fact they back up to each other. Not a big deal since sites are so large, but it would be nice if the map on their website was more accurate/realistic.

Staff does not enforce quiet hours.

Other:
This campground is mostly occupied by boaters with large campers (5th wheels, trailers, etc.) since the sites are so large. Very few tent campers although we had a good time tent camping.
