Traverse Bay RV Resort is a wonderful place to spend time in your RV. The facilities are immaculate, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and there is so much to do in northern Michigan. Traverse Bay RV Resort gets the highest recommendation that I can give: it is superb.

We are relatively new to the RV world and picked this spot off the internet. It is immaculate and a gorgeous setting with many guests staying long term. There was not much traffic in and out of the park, so it was really quiet even though we were on the main drive. There are many nicely landscaped lots with fireplaces... More

Vacationing in Traverse City, this owner occupied (they allow rentals) RV resort was a perfect choice for us, we tow a vehicle and visited 'the city' and its many shops and attractions often. This resort has amenities such as beautiful sites, laundry, pool, exercise rooms. Owners and guests stick to themselves, no socializing here! Bare bones, but that is ok... More

We decided to Take a quick weekend trip to avoid the high heat in southern Mi. I found this place on Good Sam site. Easy to make arrangements and staff very friendly. This place is for Class A, 5th wheels. There is also a min length. The price is a tad high but for the amenities I feel its worth... More

Our new 2016 Winnebago Mercedes View Motor home wasn't good enough for this place because it was a Class C. We could of purchased any motor home of our liking and chose this style for ease of getting around. We didn't expect to be turned away from a high dollar RV park because of class. Oh well, sounds like a... More

We stay in many resorts such as this one in our Motorhome travels, especially in the south. This place was very nice, but the lot owners were not!! When the lot owners came in next to us, they stayed out late and were noisy and rude. Management was friendly, and very helpful--breakfast Saturday was good, but if you were not... More

I must start by saying Sandmeister11 couldn't be further from the truth. My first thought was this person must be a competitor. We recently stayed at Traverse Bay RV resort in a 5th wheel. The grounds are beautifully kept and they have beautiful fountains. The restrooms are the best we have encountered. You get a whole restroom to yourself like... More

I was there in mid September. The pool and hot tub were closed, unfortunately. The fenced dog yard was a sludgy, muddy mess, and the entrance to it was about 6" deep with water. There are other places to walk the dog, though. Property is very pristine and pretty otherwise. Bikes to use, lots of places to walk for exercise.... More

Really nice park but with over 200 sites (and growing) the pool and club house are small - there is no kids playground - the nature trails were both blocked by fallen trees and looked like they had been for awhile. Wifi was out during our stay

Just wanted to thank this guest for their nice review but do need to clarify some of the issues commented on. The nature trails did indeed have numerous fallen trees blocking the trails but the guest was probably not aware that in early August the Traverse City area was declared a disaster area due to a wind sheer storm that...

An excellent park, with all of the amenities you would expect from a premium price park and a few more. All sites were perfectly clean with utilities well matched for the location. All you saw was grass, concrete pads, paved roads, landscaping and water features – no dirt or even gravel. Easy access to all sites, although our pad (116)... More
