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

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

Water is scattered throughout, so long hoses are needed. For a few days, good place to stop. - PugetSound

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

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

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

We chose this park because it was the closest one to family and friends we were visiting. On first approach, you think this park will be really nice. Flowers are planted at the entrance and the long drive from the road back to the campground is flanked by beautiful lawn. However, as you get closer you start to see run down, permanent rv sites - junk lying around - and overflowing dumpsters. They only have 2 dumpsters for the entire park; they need 4. There are some decrepit looking RVs in the park, but that's not really the problem. People live in what they can afford to live in. (There are a LOT of permanent residents here.) The problem is that park management apparently has NO rules whatsoever about junking up sites. Or they don't enforce any rules they do have. And don't even bother to go in the "bath house." one toilet and one shower stall. Very run down and not clean when we looked in. No 50 amp sites. Water pressure was decent. Some sites have picnic tables, some don't. Some sites have more gravel or grass on the site pads than others.
It's a real shame the park has been allowed to become so filled with unkempt sites, because the setting is quite nice: rural, lots of trees, huge expanses of grassy areas that are well kept. (Someone was mowing almost every day.) And we met some nice folks there. But, with so many junked up sites, we won't be back ... even at the low price of $100 for a week stay. (It's $25 a night for stays less than a week.)
I rated the value "satisfactory" because of the low rate for a week stay; but the adage "You get what you pay for" applies here. I rated "cleanliness" as bad because of the large number of unkempt sites and the poor restroom facility. - MelBtraveln

Quiet during the week but pretty full on the weekend. No noise to speak of other than a barking dog that was not in the campground.
Some sites are not very level. - mrracechaser

We stayed here for a week and it has a lovely park like setting. Many smaller sites are shaded. There are around 12 sites that are larger and suitable for larger rigs. The roads are paved/gravel and the sites are on grass. We were able to park under a large tree and glad we did, it was hot. Each site has water and electricity but many are buddy sites where you and your neighbor are hooked up at the same pole which means someone has to have a longer cord to do that. I was initially wary to go in with our toad but the roads are plenty big enough to stop and unhook and to navigate around. Weekends are crazy though and many large groups camp here together. We counted 12 tents in one group. Camping midweek is very quiet.
There is a very large play structure, picnic pavilions, horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts, swimming available in the lake, a concession stand from Thursday thru Sunday, and boating is allowed. I saw several people with their boat and RV parked together. There is a dump station to use on the way out of the park. While the park does have gates, they are no longer used. A camp host is on site all week. There is no wi fi but over the air TV reception was great. Just aim the antenna towards Lansing. The bathrooms are not fantastic so best to use your own rig. Swimming is the main activity here, along with peace and quiet. - Djinfl

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

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

This RV Park is no longer open to the public. The Elks lodge has closed and sold the grounds to a church. The church has closed the RV park. - leftyfaye

We spent the month of June here again this year. We have spent at least a month here every year for the last 4 years. Great place to stay near the kids. The price I stated is the monthly Jackson Elks Members rate. It is higher for non-members, but still a real bargain. We do like the small park atmosphere while we are here. Lots are large and all grass. Nice walkway back to the Grand River for a beautiful view. Nice small clubhouse where you can meet with other park guests or take friends and family for a nice place to chat. We plan to return every summer as long as we are RVing. - leftyfaye

We stayed here last summer for a month and returned this summer. The park has added 1 more RV site and they are working on a small clubhouse. The manager is very friendly and will go out of the way to accommodate you. The price I quoted is for non-Elk Members. They also have a monthly rate that is very reasonable and includes electricity. Members of the Elks Club get a discount from this price. If you stay at the RV Park, you can go into the Elks Lodge which is nice, but it is a smoking establishment. The RV Park Clubhouse is a Non-Smoking room. This is still a very nice park to stay at while in Jackson, MI and visiting family and friends. We will return again. - leftyfaye

Roads need help - lots of pot holes. Grass (weeds) needed cutting. Site 53 had loud music and lots of beer. The park wanted pet shot record. We have never been asked that over 30 years camping except in Canada. Just an old campground. Will not return. - Danceduo

Pretty campground off the beaten path. We had a back-in site with a concrete pad & level. Services were easily accessible. Interior roads need some work; lots of potholes. The signage throughout the park could be improved as could the park map provided at check-in. - Our-Wandering-Casa

The more we camp at other campgrounds, the more we love this one. Other than no full hook up, we do not have a negative word for them. The sites are large and easily accessible. There are activities for the kids and we feel safe letting our kids go off by themselves. The only other negative thing for us is the motorcycles on the trails, but the campground limits their hours so the noise is only for a few hours on certain days. - Goody61865

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

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
