We visited this park just as a day visit...and loved it. It seems to be well set up for campers...although the sites looked a bit small. Our favorite part was a small bridge that crosses over the water. There were two people fishing from the bridge when we were there. There is a great paved walking path that goes around... More

I walked the dog around the two ponds over and over! Very beautiful land! Good for a nature walk to soothe the soul. Very lovely scenery.

Arrived late, after 1030pm due to Chicago traffic!! Came from Milwaukee to visit my daughter who is attending Western Michigan University. The campground host, Josh, called to see where we were and what time to expect us. Josh stayed late, kept the exit gate open for us and welcomed us into the campground. Excellent customer service!! Now for the campground--... More

I arrived by bicycle and tent camped overnight. The check-in was smooth and efficient, and I purchased firewood and had a nice campfire in the fire pit. The campground was clean and well maintained, but could use more shade trees. I slept well as the only train came by in late evening, but it was quite close. The facilities are... More

This campground pretty much has it all, and very clean. Through donations from various sources this park is able to offer great facilities at a cheap price. It has nice walking trails, small but nice beach with great change rooms and washrooms right there. Paved sites, full hookups and clean showers. Playgrounds at the campground and the beach for children.... More

The camping area was kept very clean The site were perhaps a bit small and there is no tree cover because the campground was probably built less than 10 years ago and the trees still need to grow. My kids loved the swimming, so we just dealt with the openness.

no trees was our issue. we camped and our septic hose would not reach where the hook up is placed, so we had to go out and purchase an extension. part of the adventure, i guess. there's no privacy at the campsites, so if you want some peace and space, find another campground. we would not return here.
