This is a wonderful campground with a friendly staff, clean inviting pool, and a nice little store. The hookups for some of the sites was on the wrong side. No problem, we just pulled in facing the other way. We shared a sewer with our neighbor which is also not a problem. We have family in the area and had visitors several times in the 3 days we were there. It was no problem. The park is dog friendly and we had no difficulty getting satellite and antenna reception. - Connie's Co-Owner

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

Yankee Springs is a relatively large campground on Gun Lake which is a flood control type man made lake. Beautiful and a great lake to ski, tube wake board etc. The campground is an older facility. During our visit the temperatures were in the low 90s. Our 30 amp service continued to cut out to the degree that the second day in I talked to the park rangers about getting my money back. They were very understanding but did suggest that I try plugging into the power pedestal with out using my Progressive Industries power and surge protector. I politely declined telling them I have more faith in the P.I. device that their power supply. A couple of real nice rangers than came by and changed the circuit breakers and plug socket. This seemed to do the trick. If it wasn't for the great service by the three rangers who addressed my power issue I would've given YS a lower rating. This campground lets anything go. They do not seem to limit the amount of people on each campsite, though the Michigan DNR reservation system asks how many people will be on a site. Next to us was a birthday party with over 20-30 people sitting around pop up shelters with numerous kids. At other sites you would see extension cords running all over the place to power all kinds of electronics beside just campers. No wonder they have brown outs when the temps get into the 90s. It a shame because YS has some real nice water front campsites that some folks had their boats tied up to shoreline posts. Swimming in the lake is easy and convenient either at the small campground only sandy beach or anywhere along the shoreline, the water is very shallow a long way out. My wife and I don't think we would return to Yankee Springs, its just to crowded and loud for our camping pleasure. - vincee

This park is nice and very quiet for as busy as it is. Fishing has several piers into the lake and the lake is large enough for all boating activities. Most sites were large enough and were arranged so groups can 'circle the wagons'. The only problem was the mosquitoes which were very bad. - dalenoel

We very much enjoyed our stay and Yankee Springs. The sites were big and wooded, the beach and fishing pier were very excellent. The playground was a bit dated but the kids still enjoyed it. My only complaint was the lack of water to each site. We knew that going in but it was a bigger issue for us than we originally thought it would be. Also I expected parking for my tow vehicle would have been included but it wasn't so I had to pay an extra $24 for a season parking permit. - tripletdad

This is by far the best rustic campground on the face of the earth. Some sandy, some grass with 3 loops of 120 campsites. Lot's of woods and old oak trees 100 years old! I started camping here 5 years ago with the family and it is a true family campground. Rangers are very polite and well patrolled to ensure this stays a family setting. Each loop has a hand pump for water, and latrine. Park is well taken care of, not one leaf out of place! The Michigan Mountain Bike Association has done a wonderful job to make it one of the best 10.5 miles of riding. Please, if you walk the trails make sure you walk the same way as bike traffic. Make sure you stop at Sam's Joint and get a rack of rib's to cook over a open flame. Or Sunny Jim's pizza can deliver to your campsite as well. If you want to fall off the face of the earth than this is the place. You can also drive to the Gun Lake modern campground 4 miles away to take a hot shower, just tell the park ranger you are camping at deep lake. - Hanson

Deep Lake is the rustic campground in the Yankee Springs Recreation Area. Fantastic place to camp to "get away from it all". Most sites are in the deep woods along with a few more sunny sites. There are quite a few smaller sites or sites for tents only so be sure to check. Sites range from grassy to sandy and a few overlook the lake. Our site only had one other site within 100 yards of it. On check-in you can go thru the campground and choose a site. There are 120 sites, only half are reserveable and they are typically only full on holidays. Being rustic there are no hookups but there are several vault toilets (clean) and well water via pump available. You can use a generator during the day so long as it’s quiet. Wood available at the ranger station. There is a dump station over at the modern Gun Lake campground that you can use, less then 10 miles away. Lots of hiking trails and mountain bike opportunities. Very, very quiet. - bonscott

Not full hook up, old pool, overrun on weekends. Old bathroom/showers, 30 amp only, 2 dump stations, only 1 operating. This place needs a serious update/ overhaul. Staff are friendly! A 2 star rating at best. Safe, yes, needs serious updating. - Good citizen

Paid, but did not stay, left Shortly, office closed. Restrooms 1930 style and filthy. Light was one tired yellow fluorescent full of bugs and spiders over the filthy sinks. Could not see in toilet area, too dark. Paint peeling, stink. A few Seasonal die hard folks all hard wired and plumbed, so they could care less. This type of place gives RVing a Nasty name. Roads are Chuck holes and full of mud everywhere, hilly ground,no level spots. Has not been maintained in years. Run, don't walk away from this place. The rating in the Good Sam book has to be for the golf course or else one of the reviewers wasn't seeing correctly. - Oldfart

This park is nothing to write home about, but it served our needs for a visit to the Grand Rapids area. There was a fair amount of confusion over site boundaries, and it seemed that other campers were scattered around the park in a rather disorganized fashion. Getting level in our site was a bit challenging, but do-able. - CaptainNemo

Campground was fine for an overnight stay but we will not return. Our site was spacious but ground was damp since drainage was poor. Laundry room was not usable, dirty with just one washer available. Several full time seasonal campers. The river is next to the campground and boating and canoeing are available. - Larry 1126

We stayed here over Memorial day. It`s an OK campground. We had a full hookup site. The hookups were in good shape. Was a little on the tight side for getting into, but OK. Most sites are shaded. No full hookups along the river. Not a lot to do here except for canoeing on the river which was fun, kids had a blast! They have an indoor pool which is small. It would be nice to also have an outdoor pool. They have a small minigolf which is run down. The space would be better served as an outdoor pool. We would go back again if in the area. - dodge guy

It features friendly staff, a nice, woodsy type atmosphere. The sites are plenty big with lots of shade. We did a kayak trip and it was great. The weather was great, so we would have preferred an outside pool instead of the indoor pool, which is very loud when the kids are playing. - Terrie G.

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

This park is actually located on the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum and its primary use is as an overnight parking area for those wanting to visit the museum. A museum visit can easily span 2 days, so it is nice to spend the night without having to leave the grounds.
The museum spans 75 acres and is the largest of its kind in the US.
There is adequate space for 6 RVs and electrical service is limited to 20 amp service. Other than that, it is essentially dry camping. No dump site on the grounds.
There is an original 1960s Diner on the grounds that serves good food from a limited menu. - Lakewood90

A camp with potential. Unfortunately, it is just not there yet. Give it 5 years and it will probably be a nice site. Friendly and helpful staff. Rough on big rigs, the roads are gravel that really needs smoothing. No Wi-Fi. 30 amp service only. Wouldn't recommend for motorhomes or large 5th Wheels. - bdixon2297526

If you're looking for a nice family campground, then this is the place. Indoor swimming, Rec room, a swimming pond, fishing ponds, basketball, tennis, hiking, biking, disc golf, etc. The restrooms were questionable. One had a huge bees nest. If they were checked regularly, it would have been noticed. If you have a noise rule after a certain hour, it should be enforced. We called to complain at 4am and nothing was done about it. I agree with the previous post. It has great potential. Just needs to be better managed. - BC4LIFE

Beautiful RV Resort! We stayed three nights during a fall special of 30% off their regular $50/night rate. If you have kids stay in the upper section for easy access to a ton of kid activities. If you are traveling without kids the lower section puts you out of the kid fray and closer to the adult club house. Tons of grass, super level clean sites, nice dog run, everyone from the office to maintenance to campers are super nice. We have a 45' motorhome with our electrical cord in the back. This put us about 10' short of reaching the box. No problem, the office lent us a 50 amp extension cord for our stay. Traffic noise from 131 is the only negative I can think of and even that was just background noise. It can be equally heard from all points in the park. Entrance, paved roads and sites all big rig friendly. This is a great choice for an overnight or an entire season. - barbielab

Great park the only issue is the distance between hook ups, you will need at least 20 feet of Sewer, I use all of my electric cord 25 ft with little to spare. Place was clean as can be, staff was also great took us to our site. again a beautiful park, the only other issue we had 20 PSI water pressure. - tazman1953

This is our second stay at this park. It is beautifully landscaped and impeccably maintained. The staff is friendly and efficient. The amenities can't be beat. Sites are paved, spacious and level with concrete patios, and the roads are wide and easy to navigate. We will stay here again. - MrsBowman
