Cant hike without being run over by mountain bikes or walking through horse poop. Refuse to go there for a few years now because of the rangers, no need to be rude. Go to yankee springs its better

We enjoyed 4 nights in the campground. The park itself is huge and has trails for horse and mountain bikes. My only disappointment was that there were not enough hiking trails. The park has a very large beach area with shelter house. Clear water in the lakes. The campground was set up very nicely with large spaces and very easy to get into the sites. Bathroom/showers were very nice and clean. A suggestion here would be to have a bench so you can wait for family while they're in the shower. Many of the sites have blacktop pads and there are a few with large concrete areas which are handicap accessible. Water and dump stations were very convenient. We really enjoyed our stay at this campground!

We love Fort Custer not only for the opportunity to spend time in nature, which do many times a year on the trails and waterways, but also for the camping. We have been camping here every October for the Fall Festival (Halloween Camping) weekend for the last 9 years. The bathrooms are modern and there are nice showers. The sites for the most part are big and private with vegetation between you and the next site. There are a few spots that aren't ideal, so make sure you check site photos and descriptions when you book so you don't end up with one. Our kids love to head over to the playground to make new friends. Our kids look forward to our annual October camping trip because of all the great activities on this special weekend. There is a hot dog mixer Friday night. On Saturday there are kid's activities, hay rides, costume contest/parade, and tick or treating at over 200 campsites. People decorate and it is such a great weekend. There is a DJ dance party Saturday night that the kids love to go to. You have to book EARLY to get a spot for that weekend, but so worth it. During the summer months a trip to the beach area at the lake is always a good.

Nice place with showers , which is a plus. Careful of poison ivy at edge of several campsites. Ground is very low, not great if 1 inch or more of rain as some campsites will flood out.
