Well as many other posters have already stated, this is an extremely large campground and the sites are very small. During our stay we rented a large cabin which had one double bed, a set of twin bunkbeds, a small refrigerator and microwave. The unit was was pretty run down compared to the other two cabins next to us (rented by friends) in the same price point. It looked nothing like the pictures on the website although we did see a couple cabins that did. Unfortunately when you make a reservation you are not able to reserve a specific cabin. Our cabin did not have a ceiling fan or an eating area and it had this large weird closet that should be torn out (they may have thought that they would add a bathroom at one time?). Each cabin did have its own campfire ring so you did not have to rent one of the tiny fire tins (about the size of a large pizza pan). The restrooms were newer and in good condition although they keep the family/handicapped shower locked. When my DH went to the nearby store to ask them to unlock it he was originally told that he would have to go to the main office at the front of the campground to get someone to unlock it. This would have been quite a hike and near impossible for someone who is handicapped. I then went back to the store and told the young girl that I needed her to call the front office and have them send someone. It took about 5-10 minutes for her to actually do this because she was too worried that they would be upset for being called out to help with the bathrooms. Seriously?!?! Very poor customer service. With regard to the shower situation they were clean but if you go to the actual shower house the stalls are created by shower curtains and not very private. They do have several individual showers at the toilet house but they are shared and get filled quickly. The first night we stayed we tried the camp pizza and it was nothing more than a frozen supermarket type pizza. The sauce appeared to be more the consistency of taco sauce vs pizza sauce. The store itself was very well equipped and provided a good variety of food and beverages (including alcohol). They had two large playground areas but the base was all sand and quite messy. The playground nearest the camp store had absolutely no shade and the other was about 50% shaded. The beach was pretty rocky and the water was mucky. On Thursday & Friday night we had some campers nearby who were pretty loud after quiet hours but then on Saturday we saw the campground attendant patrolling regularly and shooing kids back to their sites. Very inconsistent. It was nice the Starline ferry offered free shuttle service to and from the campground. Overall it was an ok experience but I will seek alternative lodging on my next trip to Mackinaw City.
