This review is specific to our large cabin rental. This was our first stay at a Jellystone. We loved this campground and will definitely be coming back more than once. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to ensure all campers are having a good time. The grounds are very clean. There are children's activities all day long. The grounds are walking distance to the Christmas store, the waterpark, the hero museum, the aerial park, and downtown Frankenmuth! It's the perfect location. The cabin has everything you need besides towels and bedding. The cabins also have fire pits whereas the RV sites do not. They sell firewood on site and it is reasonably priced. We did get the barnyard dairy farm smell one night when the wind blew in a certain direction, however I do enjoy cream in my coffee and I understand milk needs to come from somewhere. For the most part, the RV sites were filled with RV's of modest size and the site size is fine for that. I did have to laugh at the ridiculous behemoth-sized RV's trying to fit - seriously these things are bigger than my house. The cabin sites are wider than the RV sites and afford a good amount of privacy from neighbours. The large cabin comes with two picnic tables and three lawn chairs. Having the indoor pool and hot tub were great one afternoon during a rainstorm. After the storm, the staff were out with pumps to pump the water off the cabin sites (our site was 210 and we did not get much standing water compared to the others).

$75/night for 2 adults; plus $5/child; plus $5/person extra for one round of minigolf. Sites are very close; no cable TV. Water spigot was on another camper's site and electric box needed a loooong extension cord. No other campground is in the immediate area so they know they can hook you. But it's an OK campground if you don't mind be gouged.

I feel horrible writing this review because the staff was so nice! However, there are major problems with this Jellystone, and when shopping for a campground, you need to be aware that there is another campground up the road, which is probably a lot nicer and better value for furry money. We traveled from New York and booked this campground because it’s a Jellystone. When traveling out of state we tend to stick to KOAs and Jellystones because you can bank on certain standards and amenities. We were incredibly disappointed and regret not doing any research to find a better campground while in Frankenmuth. Don’t waste your money here. There are a number of issues: 1) Tiny Site Size The sites are tiny in both length and width despite the fact that the sites are labeled premium and deluxe. Our site was so small that we couldn’t even put up our awning without bumping into the camper next to us. The electrical box, along with our neighbor’s sewer access (gag) was literally in the middle of our site just a few feet from our camper door. 2) Bring Your Own Fire Ring You must bring your own fire ring or you can purchase one for $40.00. After doing that, you get the added bonus of toting your own ashes to dumpsters. (Seriously, why am I paying $70.00 per night to stay here when I can book a state campground for $25.00 and not have to tote my ashes?) 3) Poop in the Pool Yup. We booked a 3 day stay. On our way to the outdoor pool on day 1 we were informed by management that the outdoor pool was closed due to an accident. Another camper told us there was a “huge log of poop” in it. Management told us the pool would be closed for an hour. It remained closed for 2 days - not that we wanted to swim in it anyway. 4) Cold Push Button Shower Being a frequent camper I am not a princess by any means. However, I have come to expect a certain standard for campground showers. I expect that showers would have a hot and a cold faucet so that I can set my own temperature. I also expect a shower to have hot water for at least 5 minutes. Not only are these showers cold, but they have one PUSH BUTTON. I have never seen such a thing in a shower. I have seen push bottoms in rest stop bathrooms for hand washing but never campground shower, unless it’s at a beach and it’s OUTSIDE the shower house to wash sand off before entering there shower house. ALL of the showers in the main shower houses have push buttons. Each time you push the button the water runs, at a set COLD temperature for 1 minute. If you push the button for 3 more cycles and let it run through, the water temperature changes to warm for 3 more cycles. Then it goes back to cold for 3 more cycles then to warm.

If you like closeness with your neighbors then this is the place for you, if not LOOK ELSEWHERE! The sites are stacked on top of each other. We paid extra for a "premium" site that was supposed to be bigger and it was still the smallest site I've ever camped on. Our water and electric were in the middle of the site next to us. The electric box was 2 feet from their camper door causing them to have to constantly watch their step. If you have a slide out it will be intruding into the site next to you. Our premium site also had an overhead light on it that shined nice and bright all night and also buzzed loudly for the first 2 hours it kicked on. So here we are trying to enjoy the night around our portable campfire ring (yes you have to bring your own) with a spot light over us. Called to discuss this with the office and was told there was nothing they could do about it. We had to cut our vacation short and leave a day early because no one was getting any sleep due to the closeness of our neighbors who weren't being loud or obnoxious but being so close you could hear every conversation, every door open and close. Not only could we not sleep but neither did our toddler so ya that's fun. The game room is practically nothing. Only good things about this campground was the location and the 2 pools, so pick your priorities wisely.

Very friendly and quick check in. We easily found out drive through campsite and they were not kidding when they say they are narrow! The trailer next to us could not open his awning or it would have hit our slideout. On the other side was our picnic table that was about 3 feet away from the next trailer. We walked around the campground and other sites were much larger. There were activities for the kids. It was Christmas in July weekend. There was a glow in the dark event. We went with our 4 grandchildren. They had one glow in the dark hula hoop and a projector for the side of the rec building. We expected them to at least provide glow sticks for each child. It did not state to bring your own glow items. There was movie night and cartoons on Sunday morning. My grand daughter lost a quarter in one of the machines and was told they could not return her money. Giving her another quarter would not have cost them much but the I'll will it caused cost them much more. The park is very clean, the pools were sparkling and The bathrooms very clean. The children's activities were done half heartedly and with no enthusiasm. For the price I really expected them to go all out for the kids activities.
