Here are a few reasons why we will never go back and do not recommend this campground to others: 1-It is so close to the 401 that you have to talk louder than usual to be heard; traffic is just that close and constant. 2-There must not be any security patrolling at night; otherwise we wouldn't have had to hear our drunk neighbours singing to their blaring music, yelling/swearing and honking their golf cart horn until 4am. 3- Campground in general was rowdy at night and people drive their golf carts way too fast for the size of the roads which brings me to my next point. 4-Camp sites are much too close to each other. Visibility, especially concerning children, becomes an issue. By the time you see a kid or if a dog runs out onto the road from behind a truck, there's little time to stop, even at the 10km/hr limit. - vross

I camped with a friend, we had a very relaxing few days. Very peaceful at night sitting around the fire. The owners came to sit with us for a bit. Very kind and friendly people in the park. Lots are spacious and offer a range of sunny to some shade. Site surface was gravel and grass and featured a fire ring and picnic table. Clean restrooms and showers. - Betty Laforest

Why would anyone want to camp here? It is located between highway 401 (a major trucking route) and Windsor Airport, so the noise never stops at any time - day or night. It is full of loud drunk people on busy weekends, not to mention the seasonals driving their golf carts around at midnight. The full service sites are basically a large open space with hardly any foliage at all, and you feel like you are in some trailer park, crammed in on top of one another. The owner is quite miserable and will find a way to have a problem with you. The wood is overpriced - you get around 8 pieces for $7.50, and the store is under-stocked. There are many other campgrounds in the area, and even though they may be a longer drive to Windsor, it would be completely worth it to make the longer trip. It may be okay for young singles (the required age is 21 to rent a site for some reason, not 18 or 19), but it isn't a place I would take a family who wants to go camping to get away from a busy life in the city. Sure, there may be a pool, fishing, and a playground, but what campground doesn't have this, at least nearby. After the experiences we've had here (and we are quite tolerable), we don't plan on ever returning. - Bob_T

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Wildwood Golf and RV resort . Food at the golf clubhouse was very good and very well priced. Pools are warm and heated and very clean. Buddy sites are great if you're travelling with somebody. Good location if you want to travel around and see the area but there isn't very much to do here at the resort unless you play golf. - Weiner

We originally chose this park because of the proximity to Detroit and that was a big mistake. Crossing the border by bridge or tunnel was a major hassle. We will never even think about using this campground again and unfortunately it's not the campground's fault.
The facility was adequate and well kept, but if you don't play golf there's not much to do there. The sites were pull-thru and full hook-up, but they are all jammed in next to each other.
There is no park store on site in case you forgot something, but they do have ice and overpriced firewood.
The resort is filled with seasonal campers as well as park models, so I'm not sure the nightly rate reflects the lack of amenities. - semodan

Very large park, lots of seasonals. This seems to be largely a snowbird park. Our rate reflects an off-season discount of 10%, but it is still expensive. The transient sites are all pull-through but are back to back. Still, by parking the right direction, you can face away from your closest neighbor. The park is very open with only a few trees, and is surrounded by a golf course. We were here in the final week of operation, and the few other users all seemed to be full-timers like us, just staging to cross the very nearby US border at the appropriate time.
We would probably stay here again. - wandrr

This is an older park but very well kept and clean. We have a 45' motor home and we were limited as to what sites we could fit on. There are only a few pull through sites with full hook ups. The electricity was a little week on pull through site 11. Voltage would go up and down and we couldn't run all three A/C units at the same time. This problem was worst on the weekend when the park was full. There are a lot of seasonal campers but their sites are very well kept. Most sites in the park are electric and water only and set up for seasonal campers (parallel with the roads) but not impossible to access. Extended stays on these sites would require getting your holding tanks pumped out. A lot of the interior roads are not straight and have big trees to maneuver around. Satellite access would be very difficult due to the large trees in most of the park. This is a family friendly park and there are lots of young kids. They have many activities for children. We camped for a week with our grandkids and they had a blast. - coehotrodder

Park features a sandy beach that is sometimes closed owing to water safety (bacteria readings). Hawk tower is a popular observation point. There is also a large day use area for picnics, games, dog walking, or whatever. Trout pond for fishing. Nice recreational trail. Plenty to do in the area especially if you like visiting wineries. Sites start at $33 (unserviced). 15 and 50 amp sites are also available, as well as water connections. Some turnover in staff including a new park superintendent means some old problems have finally been addressed to the park's betterment. Enforcement has been stepped up. Parkview campground has been closed and is returning to its natural state. Marshview remains open and is frequently booked to capacity on weekends, so reserve well in-advance. 3/4 of park is seasonals. Very laid back and peaceful. Officers address any noise/rowdiness promptly. Lots are mostly shaded and of good quality, although not as private as what some provincial parks offer. Not all is rosy though: the comfort station is frequently closed on the weekends owing to problems with their septic system pump failing. Portajons are provided but many campers are disappointed to find showers, laundry, and bathrooms closed by Sunday morning. Staff are working diligently to find a permanent solution. Also, pedestal power can vary from site to site. Best to check your power with a meter or have in-line monitoring/protection in event of brownout. In conclusion and overall I'd like to say that in the last five years Holiday Beach Conservation Area has risen a few notches and is a fine place to stay whether you are a tent camper, RV'er, or seasonal. Both staff and guests are very nice to deal with. Highly recommend. - John-in-SWO

Friendly gate staff, camp store with basic needs, scenic walking trails, low user fees, beach. Initial impression was good. But there are no conservation officers - and it shows. The park office closes at 9pm whereupon the area becomes a free-for-all, supposedly with municipal police patrolling (we saw them drive through twice in the afternoon). The bathroom facilities consisted of a trailer on a platform (not handicap accessible) which was absolutely filthy. At the CG, the screaming of profanities, loud stereos, harvesting of firewood from the forest, cruelty to wildlife, etc. only left us wondering what it must be like after 9 when the park closed. Neighbors were pretty rowdy and we decided to break camp early and not spend the night rather than take our chances staying there overnight. Now please keep in mind that there are TWO camp grounds within Holiday Beach. We apparently picked the wrong one in our quest to get a spot close to the waterfront. There is a no-alcohol campground closer to the park entrance which is also resident for some seasonal campers who probably don't put up with any nonsense. The no-alcohol camp site also has a proper comfort station with showers. If you are a family camper looking for a safe and peaceful place to stay and not a carload of underage drinkers looking for somewhere to party with impunity, you may want to pick your campsite from the ones in the nicer campground closer to the park office. - John-in-SWO

We had the worst time here; so much so we paid 3 nigts and left after only one. There is no swimming, no playground, and they charge $45 a night plus $5 per child and I have 3 kids! Only one washroom so one person at a time. Sites have no fire pits unless it's a seasonal site. There are trees but not much shade at all. Check it out on google maps before you go; we will never return. Staff was very rude, but nice on the phone at time of booking. - biscayne

We camped here right on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Big trees provided shade and flowers were blooming. The campground is older but adequate and the hostess is nice and accommodating. The only con is that it is not 30 minutes from Windsor but more like 45 minutes to an hour. We would stay here again if ever this way. There is a fishing dock where you can fish just steps from your campsite. Everything in Canada just seems so much cleaner, especially contrasting to Detroit. - JWT

We used this as a base to see The Henry Ford. Easy big rig access, internal roads and sites. We had a 50 amp full hookup site on grass. We enjoyed our stay here, felt very safe, and enjoyed being able to walk to Walmart. Tons of grassy areas to walk your dog. - barbielab

We chose this park because we wanted to do some sightseeing in the Ann Arbor and Dearborn area. The park is about 20 miles from the Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, which we visited over 2 days. We also visited Ann Arbor and the Gerald Ford Presidential Library. This was a good base for doing all that. The park is pretty basic, but it worked well for us. We had a nice long pull-through. The sites are alternate directions with shared utilities. They are a little close if all the sites are occupied, but not a problem. This park worked perfectly for us. It's fenced and felt very safe. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area. - wntrtxn

As others have said, this is a no-frills park within the county fairgrounds property. The sites are grass with many pull-throughs. We were in the "back" row, farthest from the entrance because we chose not to spend the extra $5/day for sewer since it was a short stay. The e/w only sites were fairly close with 1 picnic table and fire ring per 2 sites. The camping area was fairly full but quiet. The grounds are fenced in so felt protected. The staff was friendly and helpful. Interior roads are gravel. Park is easy access off I-94 with many restaurants, stores (Walmart, Meijers, Aldi, Menards) very close. - fredkelk
