WOW! Been awhile since anyone has reviewed this one. We were there 4 nights for a bluegrass festival. The CG was full to capacity. We arrived just after a gully washer of a thunderstorm which turned to CG into a mudfest. Full marks to the fairground staff who did their best to encourage drainage. Biblical rain aside, this really is a pretty park for a fairground. Very shaded & has a stream/river/torrent running along the back boundary. For $20.00 what do you want? Nothing wrong with this place at all. I imagine that it is very peaceful when there are no events in the fairgrounds going on. - Veebyes

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

We stayed in one of the large pull through sites on the side by the baseball fields. On the weekends the fields are used all day. People park everywhere making it hard to get to your site. They stay until about 10 pm, the next morning trash is left all over the parking area. The sites are dirt and very close together. We stayed here to see Lansing. Probably would not stay here again. - texasoaks54

Big rig friendly with level sites. The road was under construction coming into campground making it difficult. Showers and WiFi was good. No dog park but grassy fields to walk dog. No problem with our satellite. Campground charged $2.50 extra a day for electricity. - Fulltimersrv

Con- Very close sites One dump station in the driveway to come in. Seems as if a few families live there and kids just make their selves at home at any campsite. Have to pay extra for kids If you are going to have a tournament it would be nice to keep the outhouse clean... GROSS!! Some sites are super muddy with the rain No fire rings Pros- Nice camp store Like the ponds and option to rent paddle boat. Fishing. Staff was friendly Laundry Arcade - Squirt0808

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

This was a private park that recently opened up to Passport America and Escapees members. It's quiet, clean and the manager is friendly and more than helpful. We used 2 trailer sites as a pull-through. The only drawback we found was no sewer hookups. No shower house, only outhouses. Meeting room is very nice with some kitchen area. There are some picnic tables but not one at each site. Access to the park is via some dirt roads, quality of road surface varies during the year. - Dave from Indy

We averaged $12 / night w/ Passport America discount ($24 without) for W / E50. Can't beat that rate!!! Quiet campground with a lot of space between sites. The only negative is there is no way to get to the campground without traveling a mile or so on dirt and dusty roads. DO NOT APPROACH THE CAMPGROUND ON BABCOCK ROAD OFF OF ROUTE 78. This is a dirt road with closely spaced ridges across the road for its full 1 mile length. Had to slow to 5 MPH and even then the entire RV shook terribly! There are a couple other dirt roads to use that are in much better shape. - Teddi2

What a wonderful place to stay and very peaceful. Bill who runs the place is so nice and helpful. Our truck broke down and he went to Battle Creek and picked him up. Everyone was so helpful. The campground is so nice. We will stay here again when passing through. The price is great. A hidden treasure. - Kimc

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

The access was easy and the interior road where wide enough even with the park full and people going over their allotted space. The sewer in our site was high but everything else was fine. Lots of kids even in late Sept. riding bikes and driving golf cart. It had been raining hard for a few days and our site did not drain properly a little more rock could have solved the problem. We would stay here again. - sjones

We stayed here both coming and going from southern Indiana to Canada. It was fine for an overnight - had a pull-thru that was level and easy in/out. Very crowded park with LOTS of kids and noise. Nice pool if you're into that. Nothing around but the restaurant that only serves turkey - seriously, they only serve things with turkey in them!! So we cooked. There's also an ice cream parlor and dinner theater near the restaurant. Hosts were fine. Good internet and wifi. - bdnewton

First park we stayed in after purchasing our brand new motorhome. We made an extreme effort to make sure we had a site big enough and with easy access. Was promised a pull through site when reservation was made 2 months in advance (conf email showed this). When we arrived, they said that slot was taken and that we were only promised A site NOT a PARTICULAR site. I could have dealt with that OK if not for their attitude of 'Too bad, so sad'. Site we got was narrow, and exhaust pipe was almost in the mud. Gravel sites, some with more mud than gravel. No trash dumpsters anywhere except front of the park, before you even get to the office. They will pick up your trash between 10am to noon, but if you need to get rid of anything outside those hours, you'll have to keep it in your RV. We will not stay here again due to their lack of customer service. - JackieInFL
