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

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

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

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

Dilapidated location. Office was not marked and was the first of many unattractive buildings. - tabber386

This is an older park. The restroom facilities were in great need of updating and repair. They were not very clean either. The rest of the park, however was clean. The owners were very nice and helpful. - ScrapperJo

This park is a big mobile home park with maybe 60 campsites around the small lake. It is very old and needs repair and upgrades in order to be called a compground. The electric is very bad and not enough current to run an air conditioner, in fact the electricity would shut down in our rig often due to low voltage. The people that run the campground are wonderful, friendly and warm family oriented willing to help in anyway they can. The water is very hard with lots of iron in it and all the hookups are very poorly located on the site, making connections to the rig hard and in some cases even have to be run under the rig. This could be a great campground, however it is not now and we can not recommend it. - racomarley

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

Beautiful park. Easy flat paved streets. Dirt road about half mile long to get to park entrance so vehicles filthy when coming and going. Long drive to Ann Arbor. Put@1000 miles on car in 12 days visiting friends in and around A2. Camp host and staff excellent. Very difficult to find camping around A2. - MyVoice

We stayed at the Portage Lake Campground. Very nice facility, clean and updated. Electric is the only hookup, but water was close by. Twenty thousand acre recreation area with a lot of walking/hiking trails. Nice clean sandy beach for swimming, when it is warm. We would definitely return. A Michigan passport to use a state park is required. Yearly non-resident fee is $30; daily rate is $8.50. - pkd31780

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

My husband and I and our dog stayed for a weekend. Very friendly owners. We had a tree limb that needed trimming because it was laying on top of our camper. Owner came right over and took care of it and was very nice about it. The rate was around the $36 range. We weren't bothered by any road noise. Not a super kid friendly place. Small playset on a small beach at a small pond. We actually liked that about it. Kids are cute but ours are in their late teens so we are past all of that activity stuff. Very enjoyable stay and would camp here again. - Forty and Fifth Wheeling

Very nice setting on with mature trees and a nice pond. We enjoyed a couple of nice walks. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was very peaceful. Many of the units are long term and no one was around while we stayed mid week. We had full hook up and everything was convenient and worked well. Our site was #17. It was a very long pull through with lots of room. It was gravel. It was level! The site had a cement pad near our door with a picnic table. We had a well placed fire ring which we used. It is close to I-94 and that is good and bad. It is easy to get on and off I-94 but the tire noise is constant. Because the campground is in a bit of a valley with many mature trees making a barrier between it and I-94 the truck noise was just a hum. My wife said it was the worst shower ever. She likes lots of hot water under pressure. The pressure was low and it took forever to get hot. I showered in the RV so I have no opinion on the showers. Nice club house with a library, and clothes washer and dryer. We plan on returning again. It is a good spot for us to stay while seeing doctors in Ann Arbor. (about 30 minutes away) We did not venture out to shop but there are many choices within 5 miles or so for restaurants, fuel, food, etc. - OldWrench

Nice quiet park. Large spacious lots. Everyone is friendly. Trails to walk, fishing, paddleboats. Roads are compacted dirt and rock. Wide roads. Very open and spacious. It is dark at night and most campers leave their exterior lights on. A very nice place to relax and get away from the daily grind. - Likeorlove
