Very friendly management. The lake is very nice and well maintained, with lots of people swimming in it, and a very cool lighted fountain in the middle for nigh time enjoyment. Close to the highway and easy to get to, but once you're there it feels like you're a long ways away from anywhere. A good wholesome campground. - 2gaycampers

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

Alice Springs RV Park is located between Lansing and Grand Rapids, just a few miles off I-96. It is a beautiful park with back-in spaces that can accommodate the largest RV's. It has a mix of seasonal and transient sites. Sites are generously sized and easy to back in. Utilities and wifi worked well. The amenities are beautiful and appear quite new...and everything in the park is spotless. I didn't see as much as a gum wrapper while walking around the place. Alice Springs RV Park is a hidden gem. I would absolutely stay here again if I am in this area. - expdek570

Very nice park with plenty of room to maneuver our large rig around, very clean grounds just a short drive off the interstate, a local state road runs right in front of the campground which is very noisy but I imagine if towards the rear of the campground not as bad. Helpful staff that tries their best to be on top of things but in a good way. Water hook up kept leaking but after some readjusting and slight repair was able to stop the leaking. - DBLR

Nice enough campground halfway between Lansing and Grand Rapids right off I-96. Level gravel back in full hookup 30/50 amp sites. Nice store on site. Pool and other kids activity later in year than this. Would stay again. - teepee51

Ionia State Recreation Area provides campers with rolling hills, a tranquil lake and 4500 acres of outdoor adventure. Hiking, hunting and fishing, swimming, 24 hole disc golf and an equestrian area are the main activities that provide an activity for users to enjoy. Camp sites are clean and well spaced throughout a mostly wooded area. 20-30 amp electrical service at each site and a dump station to empty the tanks. - Dhoch

We have stayed here many times as it is a little over an hour from home. The campground sits off Sessions Lake which is a small "no wake" lake making it great for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. There is a nice two-slot boat launch. They rent canoes and one person kayaks. The beach is nice, however the wild geese can sometimes make it a mess. There is a bath house located at the beach also. The recreation area also has a picnic area along the lake with a nice fishing pier. There are nice hiking trails that encompass the lake and surrounding area. Last year they finished resurfacing the main road which was terrible prior. The campground also has an equestrian camping loop. All sites are spaced well apart and have nice cover with the sites in the lower loop having more shade. There is a two-slot dump station at the campground entrance. All sites are paved, with 20 and 30A electric, fire rings, and picnic tables. There are central water spigots located around each loop. There is one bath house with (4) showers and (1) HCP shower. The water pressure is good also. The bath house is relatively clean and the rangers come mid day to tend to it. We were in site #12 this last visit, but have been in many different ones over the years. Some have more room than others. I haul a boat along and they are not concerned if you park vehicles or boats on the grass. Ionia is just six miles down the road where there is a Walmart, Meijers grocery, and many other establishments. Overall the recreation area is pretty quiet as it is five miles from I-96 and there are no large cities close by. - Uncledon

Site 45. Stayed here with another family over July 4th weekend. The park is nice and appears to be well maintained. The camp hosts had a list of events planned for the kids which was well received by the four children camping with us. That all said, the park has some problems. First, and most annoying to me, the firewood sold at the ranger station ($5) was so wet that it was almost un-burnable. Second was the lack of rule enforcement by the rangers. There was lots of noise after 11:00 PM, the posted quiet time, as well as many campsites with more than two vehicles which caused for very congested camp roads. There were barking dogs all night and people shooting off fireworks well after midnight (sign posted saying "No Fireworks"). It's sad that such a beautiful location is ruined because it's so poorly managed. It is unlikely that we will stay here again. - Brewstar

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

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

As with most "Fair Grounds" you 'make your own site' and elec. and water can be some distance to stretch. No dump here but the city waste water plant is next door and $4 dump fee. Enter on Bowes St., turn left on Broadway and Fair Office is third building on left. Also an entry for trucks going to the grain elevator so you may have some trucks parked on the street. Nice area with grocery and fuel very close - good phone and antenna tv - WiFi if you are close enough to the buildings that have transmitters - 20 min. to Grand Rapids. Great for the price ($20 day / $100 Wk.) - SailorGolf

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

This is the rural fairground/expo center and there are frequently things going on (a horse show while we were there). The sites are on grass and very spacious. There are plenty of shade trees and lots of open sites as well (satellite signal is very good here). We were the only rig in the entire park when we pulled in on a Friday night. Note, if you come in after 5pm, you're pretty much on your own to find a site and settle in. We arrived late on a Friday and couldn't find anyone to pay until the following Monday. Dump Station only. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

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.
