12 RV Parks near Paulding, Michigan
Aug 2011 - $1.00
This campground is just fine if you are self contained and can live without good TV. Actually we found PBS stations. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked fine here. We stayed in site East 13 which is right on the lake. The dirt trail entrance is fine and just past the camping site is a look to turn the rig around. Quiet. Grass, some trees fairly level. Hand water pump available next to site. There is a west area campground that we did not visit, but on the site map, the area looks good with a few pull throughs. Check out the website maps before visiting. And there really was no camping charge, I put in $1 to get the page to work. It did cost $8 to visit Bond Falls, which are beautiful. - rncordy

This park is run under by Upper Peninsula Power Company. It is one mile east of US-45 in Paulding. The park has rustic camping with spots scattered all along the north shore of the flowage. There is a office to check in by the entrance. - Yooperboy

We stayed at this campground the night of August 23, 2018. A paper on the board in the campground states "water is unsafe to drink at present time." There is nothing about the water on the entrance sign to the park. This is a very convenient park for anyone traveling east/west on Michigan 28. It's just a few hundreds yards off M-28. First come, first serve campground. There is a pay station, which has envelopes and a drop box. Easy in/out for big rigs. There were 4 other RVs in the campground the night we stayed. The entrance road is paved, but the campground interior roads are gravel. Sites are on grass/gravel. We had no problem leveling. I believe there are now at least 12 sites. The first two electrical boxes do not have numbers on them. Two sites share the same pedestal, one on each side. Each site is designed to accommodate two RVs (pull in in opposite directions). All sites are pull-through. There are grills and tables. Dump station on site. We didn't check out the showers/restrooms. Sites are long and relatively level. (We are a 40' motorhome, towing a Saturn Vue, and we did not unhook the car.) There isn't a dedicated pet area, but there's plenty of space to walk pets. Verizon data and cell worked well. There were no OTA channels. There is a children's play area. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

Basic but very quaint township operated CG. Called to book site but it's "first come, first serve". They said it wasn't busy and they were right - we were the only campers. Easily accessible CG from highway and good road into CG. Hook ups easy to access. Bathroom/shower house were combined with only one toilet so if someone is showering, it could be a long wait. There were outhouses available. The bathroom/showers were clean with good water pressure. No amenities at CG but within very short walking distance to grocery store and 2 or 3 bars/restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. - Bunners

Out of the many rustic national and state forest campgrounds I have visited over the years, this is one of the best. Sites come in a variety of sizes suitable for everything from the smallest tent to the largest fifth-wheel, though options for the latter are limited. Most sites are wooded and have excellent screening and distance from neighbors. Half to two-thirds of sites are located along the lake with either direct access to the water or access down a short trail and/or staircase. Other sites are located on the inland side of the access roads. Several outhouses are scattered throughout the campground. There are also pressurized water spigots, but the spigots do not have threaded ends to attach a hose.
Along with a variety of fish (smallmouth bass were all I encountered, but without much effort put in) and a couple of loons, the lake itself is host to a small number of homes/camps, but at the end of September and beginning of October, the atmosphere was as peaceful as good be. Night was nearly completely silent other than the loons and owls all around.
Staying here was a pleasure and I most certainly will be back, probably late in another season when occupants are few and solitude is golden. - UPJerry

This campground is part of the Ottawa National Forest. Our site must have been 100' deep as well as wide and was a pull through. The sites are so large and wooded that we couldn't even see the campsites next to us. Almost all the sites are on the lake. Depending on your elevation you either had a path going to the water, or for the higher sites individual staircases down to the lake. Some of the waterfronts are sandy and others are more rocky. All sites had fire rings and poles (not high enough for bear poles but we used for garbage anyway, and for hanging our lantern at night). Primitive campground, only pit toilets, water pumps and no showers. They have a large group camp area, a beach and a park. No reservations, first come first serve. While the sites are big enough for even the biggest rigs, we did have a lot of branches to contend with on the campground loop. - User100

A true gem! We booked a lake front site on Lac Vieux Desert Lake which is a dream for a water lover. Shallow, calm waters for kayaking and floating. Very quiet and relaxing. Lots of seasonals which are vacant right now. Close to Land O'LAKES which is a charming small town. Water and 30 amp connections. The owner is very helpful and eager to share his knowledge of the North Woods. - Helga K

This is a little park tucked into the woods right off the highway. Noise was noticeable but not a problem. There were a lot of mostly vacant seasonal sites. Ours was partial shaded, level, gravel, 30A full hook up site. Plenty big enough to easily get our 38 foot diesel pusher into. There are 3 or 4 newer 50A sites I found the next morning. There are not a lot of amenities. It's and OK place to stop for a weekend or over-nighter. - whizbang

My family and I spent a weekend here just for fun. It wasn't much fun. The rules are strict and the host had problems. You get all sun all day and the beach is only one foot wide. The only good thing was the long fishing dock. Do not come here!!! - Yooperboy
