9 RV Parks near Charlotte, Michigan
Jun 2015 - $20.00
When we arrived this year (we have grandkids in the area), we found that one of the trees had fallen just a few days earlier and was less than 24 hours from when people were camping in that spot. We also found out that some or all of the others have tree rot.
This year, the regular camp host has quit and nothing is getting done ....
It's still $20 a night with less amenities
Enough is enough, we're out of here ! ! ! - magic
Jun 2014 - $20.00
Please note new rate. This is a basic park and the rates this year went up by 33% without any changes. No extra anything, just the same water every 6th space or so, 30 amp max, and some sites with only 20. We will stay here again, unless we can find something else in the area. - magic
Jul 2013 - $15.00
Water is scattered throughout, so long hoses are needed. For a few days, good place to stop. - PugetSound

Seemed nice at first. Park rate is actually $325, it's a monthly rate but you pay utilities as well. Management isn't good, they say one thing and do another. They don't keep things clean and we paid for full hook up only to have the water shut off for what they said was routine cleaning, yet charge for full hookup. Wifi not usable half the time. Camp store not opened. No zipline. Owners yell and scream at park guests, management does as well. Not impressed by having sign in at manager's personal cabin; should have an actual office for that. Very unprofessional. For the area you had to drive a ways to get any groceries at a decent amount. The park itself had nothing except a lot of work on the bathroom which from what was said been going on since summer. Highly believable as managers and owners seem to have no indication on how to run a campground. - Anonymous65

I strongly advise that you find a different park. Planned to stay 5 nights, left after 1.
We needed a place to stay for the week near Grand Rapids. Unfortunately, a lot of campgrounds in this area are closed by mid-October and we're on a budget, so our options were limited. Found this park on the Passport America website, and planned to stay for the week, but foolishly did not call ahead to confirm any details. Turns out there are new owners and they don't care for PA, but haven't bothered to take their info off the site. They did honor the discount for our first and only night, which is the only acceptable thing about this experience.
The park is almost completely filled with permanent residents and almost every site is littered with junk. The trailers are old and unkempt (some displaying confederate flags), the 'pond' looked like waste water, all the play equipment is falling apart, and the locals are haggard and unfriendly. Very dismal scene.
We wanted to leave as soon as we set up and realized what this place was. Thankfully, we were meeting some family in GR, so we didn't have to stay long. We got home late, and left early the next morning. They want $30/night for this place when you can find a park 20min from downtown GR for $35/night.
We had FHU. Verizon was no good. - Unknown_Normal

New owners to an old park that was shut down years ago. Nice park with lots of new things like a 52' water slide and plans for a zipline in the future. Everything works fine as the new owners had to repair or replace 27 safety items before the opening this summer. Plans for 50 amp at all the full hook up sites. Sewer hook up is toward the front so we needed (and had) lots of hose. - magic
Aug 2015 - $23.00
This was a good park to overnight, however the only had 1 pull thru site that was level & big enough for 40ft MH. Good electric & water service. After we had used dump station owner's son said we owed $10.00 so we paid. $3.oo for AC so site actually cost $33.00. Have 2 port-a-potty & no showers that we saw. Nice sandy beach & boat & raft rental. - Driftr

This is a nice little park for an overnight stay or a few days. We had a waterfront site with excellent views. It has large spots that are fairly level. They offer boat rental, and have an ice cream bar and a small store.There is an extra three dollar charge if you want to use your A/C. It is not too far off the interstate and is easy to locate. - acadiandave

Nice little park with great hookups. Good playground and activities. Not used much anymore but well maintained. A few pullthroughs but if not busy you can park crossways on a couple of sites. Very nice managers. 1 miles gravel road in. Price is right and we would stay here again. - Landyachty
Jul 2016 - $12.00
So beautiful here. Spacious and well maintained. A couple of miles of dirt roads, but worth it. The most quiet RV park we've stayed in. The name says travel trailers, but mostly big rigs and big travel trailers and fifth wheels. We would definitely stay here again in our 40' fifth wheel. Back-ins, but lots of room so no problems. No wash areas so you have to be self contained unless you don't mind outhouses. The only thing I missed was a pool. It said WiFi in the Passport America book, but it never showed up for us. - Ginny H

Very nice park with a country feel. Big Rig friendly! Plenty of room & wide streets for our 45' Class A motorhome. Sites #55-#65 have too much slope for a large RV. Our back-in site 68 was fine for leveling. Bathrooms were spotless. Gravel roads/sites. No satellite issues. Many sites have a concrete patio & fire ring. No problems with full hook ups. Friendly staff. Pool had just closed for the season when we arrived Oct 1. Would have given a higher rating if roads were paved. Since it recently rained before arrived and during our visit, dust was not an issue. - 2SimsNanRV

Very nice and new RV park in central Michigan. The sites are a mix of back in and pull through, gravel parking areas with a concrete pad living area with a picnic table. The park has great amenities including two pools, volleyball and basketball courts and a community room with tables and games. The park wifi worked well and the staff was very nice. We highly recommend the park to anyone visiting the area. See our updates, pictures and full reviews on our blog at thegilliamsisland. - Gary Gilliam

Very clean, wide spaces, 2 pools, excellent staff. Great restaurant on site. Great place for a family. Great WiFi as well. - Tom-Sandy

So not big rig friendly. Pull throughs are "buddy style' sites which creates a forced socializing with neighbors. Large rocks throughout park created problems navigating. Narrow drive entering that is partially blocked by people using dump station on one side and low hanging branches on both sides which ran down side of coach. Mentioned to office staff and was told "if you ran down that tree branch then it is your own fault". Pull through sites not large enough for vehicle and required disconnect. Interior roads are gravel. By pass this place. Lack of proper tree trimming, buddy style sites, and large rocks make this awful. See photos. - RodeoClown

Absolute dump filled with trashy trailers and trashy people. Tight turns. Dirt roads. I would rather boondock at WalMart. My parking space was filled with tree roots. - firsttimefulltimer
Jun 2018 - $39.00
We wanted a quick weekend with grand kids. Cottonwood was close. $39 for 2 Adults and a 3 & 4 and year old. It was over priced for what we got. Our site was level, but we could not have gotten into many others in the park because of incline in to the site. No fire pits but you can have fires on the ground. Playground for kids was OK but equipment was old and would not be installed today due to risk of injury to the kids. Pool was dirty for first two days but was cleaned on third day. Power was fair, but on hot a summer day it would have been a challenge to run both AC's. Extra $10 if you want to check in before 2:00 PM. We would not stay here again. - IBMSSMITH3

I had called ahead to ask if there was availability. When I arrived the lady running the office had to call the groundskeeper a few times to find a suitable site. There was some confusion but another rv'er told me where there was a 50A plug. I ended up parking beside a building under some huge trees, had 50A service, water and was able to get my portable Direct TV dish locked in.
It is very quiet (a few trains, but not many) and I had a shady spot for most of the day. I would stay again if passing thru the area. - mrracechaser

Other review is accurate. Great Rest rooms/Shower house. Most sites only have electric (20 amp only) water in very few locations. No other services available. Good spot for event in the area. - Mushroom
Mar 2005 - $10.00
This is an excellent example of a County/City park. There is a wide variety of sites from big spacious to small very shaded. This is a fairgrounds that has paved roads. There is little to do unless there is an event going on. We use this park for single overnights or event. A much more pleasant alternative to other parks in the area. Call ahead if you are coming in after hours. - Mushroom
Jul 2007 - $26.00
Recent new owners turned a "drinker's haven" in to a family oriented campground. Few amenities, but very quiet. Little bit of a drive from the expressway, but it was one of the closest campgrounds to Lansing, MI that had availability in short notice. - The Ketters
Jul 2011 - $27.00
Very friendly management. The lake is very nice and well maintained, with lots of people swimming in it, and a very cool lighted fountain in the middle for nigh time enjoyment. Close to the highway and easy to get to, but once you're there it feels like you're a long ways away from anywhere. A good wholesome campground. - 2gaycampers
