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

The park had been only open for a week into the new camping season. Staff was very friendly and polite. The campground is old and was a formal KOA and is in need of some updating. All dirt roads and campsite. Roads and site are tight (tree lined). Once the trees have leaves on them you would need a spotter to help guide you in. The first spot (204) I backed into had a melted 30 amp receptacle. Power pedestals were 20 and 30 amp. Sewer dump was almost level if not slightly up hill. They moved me to a different site (209), the power pedestal was in good shape. - John Herthel

This is a poorly managed park and uncaring employees. Dirt roads had lots of pot holes, camp sites were small with mostly dirt surface. It rained while we were there and mud was every where. Many seasonal campers with piles of junk all over. Our bikes were stolen during our stay and management blamed it on the trailer park across the lake. We will never go back here. Probably our worst experience at a camp ground. - Poco

The Campground itself is decent. The lake is nice, good for kayaking, and there is a trail around it for hiking/biking that was nice. The playground is old and dated, not much to do for kids there. We tried the campground out because of the pictures of the beach and water slide, it looked like a fun place to spend a few days. Where the campground really falls short is service, however. Just a couple of examples: We didn't learn until check-in that the water slide costs an extra $5 per day wrist band. You can use it 3 times for free, after that you have to buy the wrist band. OK, well we thought we will wait for a nice weather day and buy the kids wristbands. When a nice day came around we tried to buy wristbands to find out that even though there are hours posted daily for the water slide, they only opened it on the weekends, Saturday and Sunday only. That's the general vibe we got from everybody, the rules and hours of things were pretty much arbitrary and subject to change without notice. One other example: The store was open until 7pm Sunday, so at 6:05 I brought the kids to play mini golf. They said, "Sorry, we're done renting equipment for the night, come back tomorrow morning." So we came back Monday morning and they said, "Oh, we just sprayed for bugs over there so it's closed for a couple hours, try back this afternoon." We came back in the afternoon and they said, "Sorry, it's closed all day today." Again, the park itself is pretty decent and the lake is nice. With some good consistent service the campground could be a really nice stay. For us, I don't think we will be back. - Jefster

This was the inaugural trip for our brand new Grand Design 5th wheel and the weather could not have been worse. Obviously that was not the fault of the park but it exacerbated the deficiencies. The road leading up to the park is dirt and there are may potholes to be avoided as the road is used frequently by heavy trucks going to the businesses on the road. It poured all day and the ground was thoroughly soaked with our site being very soft and we left some deep ruts where the gravel of the pad did not support the weight very well. We stayed in a pull through site and the route to it was not very clear. The site was very long with ample room for our 37' rig, the truck and another car. However, back by Lake Virginia where our site was, there were no facilities at all. All the amenities of the park are up at the front with not even an outhouse back in the hinterlands with us in area Z. The roads in the park held up fairly well to the bad weather with not much mud though there were some areas with potholes but for the most part they were fine. The park does have Wi-Fi available even back where we were though I never got the chance to test it out. Our AT&T cell signal was excellent. It is a nice enough park, especially if you like fishing on the lakes but for us, we felt it was overpriced. We have been here before and we will be back though so that should tell you something. There is a narrow bridge as you head into the back of the park that is essentially one-way. - Meyer Camping

Great park, well maintained but huge. Staff was great. They took us to our site and came by about an hour later to check in on us. The Road is dirt, and we came in a rain storm and it was not nearly as bad as some have stated. The only issue is at night the park is huge and it is about 3 miles around, there are no lights at night and you do not have any signs that light up, you can barely see them, they could use better signage for coming back when dark other then that a great park. - tazman1953

We spent 3-1/2 months here at a seasonal, monthly rate. Electric is additional. This is a lovely gem just outside major city limits. It's 2 miles of dirt road from the paved main road entrance so be prepared for lots of dusty cars! There are 4 lakes and they limit their seasonal guests. There are probably 40% of the site's that are yearly rentals and it's very heavy on locals who just come out to enjoy the lakes on the weekends. Our site had 3 huge shade trees which kept us cool during the hot summer but we were unable to get a satellite signal so we put our Direct on vacation hold. We were able to pick up limited local channels with our antenna. All the staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of planned family activities on the weekends. Grounds are immaculate. We are originally from this area so we spent a lot of time visiting family & friends but there's lots of nice attractions nearby. - monamonaco

I went during harvest weekend and it was great! Although it was raining on and off, the campground host provided entertainment . The trick n treating for kids was awesome. I would do it again. - NettaDS

We picked here because it was close to family. Nice park - a little noisy with late (after 10) night activities (People sitting around fires talking, kids riding bikes to bathrooms, etc) but not bad. Our particular site wasn't grassy and had lots of sand/dirt - but it was underneath a large shade tree. Can't have everything! The campers behind us brought an Xmas laser projector and it looked like the whole tree had fireflies in it - pretty cool. - RosalitaAS

I have never stayed in such a CLEAN state park!!! The restrooms were immaculate!!! It seemed that staff was constantly cleaning them. Individual showers with great temperature control was much appreciated. The sites were small and there was not much privacy between sites, but we thoroughly enjoyed the friendliness of the campground host and the activities that were offered. - dexie

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

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

Our stay here was due to availability in the Metro-Detroit area. PROS: Many amenities and family oriented activities. Paved Roads and campsites. Mature trees on electric-only sites (but planted in the center of the site rather than between sites). Observed security / staff handling pet complaints, loud music violations, and water disruption in full hookup area. Observed staff actively trying to keep grounds and bathrooms clean. CONS: Not a campground to visit if you like peace and quiet to "get away from it all". This is a commercialized urban version of camping for city dwellers. The only legitimate camping features are the nearby lakes and rusty hard water. Multiple sites not observing camp rules with complete disregard to others (dogs in no-pet areas, not flushing toilets, unsupervised very young children, loud music, screaming and yelling, etc.). Disruptions do not differ from weekend to weekday; they just intensify on the weekends. - Blue Collar Lady

Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. Unless you prefer the sounds of babies crying, dogs barking, and car horns all day and night as well as the feeling of being squished in like sardines and a vaguely uneasiness that your car will be broken into while you sleep. This place is HUGE and has dozens of permanent residents, many of whom live in tents or the weird tarp buildings that the camp has built over by the lake. In addition to these sad tent cities, there is also a huge trailer park in the back full of falling down trailers. Also the water was visibly reddish and rusty and smelled and tasted bad. The worst part was that we picked this place because it had a pool and we promised our kids a pool at the next stop in our journey to the east coast, except that when we got there we were turned around and told "No floaties in the pool." Okay, fine I thought, as we were carrying pool noodles and a blow up animal ring, I could understand not allowing those. However, we were rudely told by the young staffer that this rule ALSO included the "floaties" they were wearing. What they were wearing were those foam, clip-on flotation armies that also go across the front of the body called "Puddle Jumpers." They would sink without them! These are neither "floaties" nor are they toys of any sort. They should be considered part of their swimming attire and are in NO way bothering the pool or any other swimmers. This rule is ridiculous and designed ONLY to sneakily keep kids out of the pool. I am appalled and really mad. - Zoey Katz

Little difficult to get to off the interstate due to all the construction on the interstates around Detriot this year. IF you are looking for a quiet stay for a week this is it. Nice sites, lake, and a 27 hole championship course for $25/cart for seniors. Little driving for the sites but you are in a really nice community and very clean Not far off the interstate if heading up north. - Barber1998

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
Oct 2016 - $45.00
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

PROS: Good value. Electric and water pull-through 60 ft grass site for $30/night. Trees. Decent view. Good spacing. Poor wifi at our spot, but good wifi from office.
CONS: Staff not friendly to transient (non-seasonal) campers. Rejected delivery my Amazon package. This demonstrated lack of respect for campers. My package was labeled per the manager's instructions, but was rejected upon delivery. After paying for six nights, one would thing they would try to take good care of their guests needs.
HUGE rig-wrecking potholes in gravel entrance Sherman road, almost damaged the undercarriage of my rig. Ugly algae in pond. Mostly seasonal campers. Utilities on wrong side. - tdrager
Aug 2015 - $30.00
Interior gravel roads in dire need of repair. Potholes and dust everywhere. We experienced some rain, and many of the sites were flooded. 30 amp service and old equipment. There was some arcing in our power pole and it caused our power cord to melt into the receptacle. Thankfully I had good power monitoring equipment in my rig that prevented damage. No sewer either. For the fees charged, this campground is not a good value. The staff is below average in friendliness. Not bad, but certainly not the outgoing friendliness we see at so many other places. The county roads leading up to the park are atrocious. Both asphalt and gravel, and both in terrible, terrible condition. We traveled at a crawl and were weaving across both lanes just to avoid potholes and crazy-rough patches. I realize that is not the fault of the owner, but it certainly has a bearing on my overall satisfaction. - User3367

Campground roads are gravel and not well maintained. The camp sites are grass and almost level. We camped at site 20. Good satellite reception, 30amps, water, no sewage and partially shaded. I reserved the site over the phone. No one was in the office when we arrived at 4pm. We would camp here again, but only for a overnight stay. About 20% of sites were occupied. - tethomas

(Price reflects the monthly rate of $595 + electric.) This is an older, family-owned and operated park with many seasonal rentals. Navigating the park with our big rig (43-foot 5th wheel towed by a Volvo semi truck) was not a problem. Staff was friendly and quick to help. Bathrooms are dated but clean. Most sites back onto canals, so there are lots of geese and ducks to watch. Sites along the canals have nice trees (cottonwoods, mostly) for shade. There are also some pull-through sites available with no waterfront and no trees. There are 6 washers/dryers for $1.75/load. The "playground" is dinky and the "swimming beach" is not something I'd dip my toe in, mostly for the aforementioned waterfowl but also because it looks weedy and cloudy. Good place to stay for exploring the area or visiting with family (as we did). The park had a big BBQ and fireworks display to celebrate the Fourth of July. - a_elkins

OK park. Nothing to really complain about, but noting of real note for me either. We were here to visit the Henry Ford and Greenfield Village, so not here to relax in the park so it fit our needs well. Site was level. The full timers have made their home here, and not in a bad way. Nicely kept up. I think I would camp at another park, just because of the closeness to the beach, not because our time here was unpleasant. - steammaker
