30 RV Parks near Rothbury, Michigan
Jul 2012 - $65.00
This campground is either very good or very bad. The good: There is much to do. There is a modestly priced and very nice indoor water park, outside horse back riding, a weekly rodeo and pig roast, several restaurants, and a beautiful golf course. The bad: The restaurants and golf are quite expensive. And, the campground is heavily wooded, making it very difficult for a 43 foot RV like mine to maneuver. There is no WIFI and no cable. It is impossible to get satellite reception. Also, the cell phone coverage is poor. And, most of all, the trees need to be trimmed. It is very frustrating and maddening to scratch up your RV just getting in and out of a campground. This place is so close to being great. There is even a a flat open spot just outside the campground, that could be set up for higher end RV's. If Double JJ wants to bring in higher end campers for their expensive golf and food, they need some higher end camping spots. Until then, it is unlikely we will return. - sse

Dusty? Yes. Overpriced? Yes. But the Double JJ is a fun place to stay, and the CG is quite attractive, with lots of shade for most sites (helpful in the summer) Those trees do pose a hazard for larger rigs, though, especially threading through the narrow roads in the campground. Very family-friendly place, the western theme is fun, and there is lots to do. The pool area next to the campground is beautiful, with several fun pools, none too deep, and an awesome waterslide. Horseback riding is plentiful (albeit extra charge), and the rodeo (also extra) is fun. Would consider going again, perhaps for a special occasion. - PokyRVer

This very large campground is a hidden gem. There are limited sites with power so make sure to have a reservation if you need one. I was a little hesitant when I heard that the campground only had port-a-potties. I will say that these were amazingly clean and odor free. They have these placed every 500 feet around the campground. The roads are dirt and it can get a little dusty at times but it never bothered us at our site. Big rigs will have no problems navigating the campground. Many of the sites are right on the water and the kids were able to swim right from our site. There is a beautiful sandbar with swim platforms in the middle of the lake. We did not fish but our site neighbor did and was able to catch a large bass every second or third cast. The owner and his wife were very friendly and made rounds regularly. It is clear that they take pride in the park and keep it well maintained. We did not receive a WiFi signal (nor did we ask about it) but we had strong AT&T 4g so it wasn't an issue. - TeamErnzer

We stayed one night mid-week in September. There are only a few sites with water & electric. Many sites have electric and most are dry camping only. All sites have a view of the lake.
It's located right off of Hwy 31 but there is a lengthy dirt road to the main gate. It's still big-rig friendly but maybe not for the high-end motor coaches.
Owner is friendly, helpful and made his rounds in the evening. Great rate for PA members. - Craig H

Lake is larger than it appears on Website. Horseback riding and Golf is right across the street at Double JJ resort which is in Rothbury. A store is right down the road and the town of Montague is very close for shopping or canoeing. The lake has a lot of lakefront sites, but many of them don't have a lot of shade so you have to think about how the shade moves with the suns movements to get a shady spot. Also has more shady private sites off the lake and a large group area with several nice sites with electric grouped together. Clean fire rings, clean everything. Very clean porta-potties everywhere. Very clean campground. Only two shower stalls but clean and adequate as this new campground is not very busy yet. Really nice roped off sandbar swimming area in the middle of lake is connected to a peninsula so you have a nice safe place for swimming with little ones. Also a floating swim dock with a ramp that you can jump off into the deep side, a fishing dock, and two floating volley ball courts. Nice sandy bottom lake with small beach areas in front of most all of the lake front sites. A road goes around the campground in a circle which is great for bike rides. Also has a bike trail towards the front of the campground and another trail towards the back. Only ice, wood, and inner tubes for rent available on site. There is a store is right down the street. Close to Michigan's Adventure. Lots of wildlife and catch and release no license fishing. Only small no gas motor boats allowed. The only thing we did not like was a bit of highway noise at night after all the birds and crickets calm down. Beautiful night sky. No frills, but it has that back woods nature feel with lots of blueberry plants everywhere and lots of privacy because there are a Lot of sites. Saw a crane living right in front of our camper on the water. - csunbean

Park was clean and the staff could not have been nicer! Lots are spacious with sunny/open exposures. Site surface is gravel, dirt and sand. Features a fire ring and picnic table.
Complaint is that there is no TV signal (5 channels), no Wi Fi even at the store where there was supposed to be some, and no cell phone signal.
In this day and age I feel that a campground that is charging a pretty good price should have at least TV and wi fi. - User3353

Many different sites available. Electric and water are popular. Good level full hookups. Wi-Fi very weak and sites are controlled to limit traffic. Had to use smart phone for email and trip planning. Hiking trails are good, and canoe/kayak/tube livery is close and excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. A well established park (I used it in 1978) and they continue with improvements and new sites. - Hornman

We really enjoyed this park. We had a site right on the creek and kids played in it all day long. They also have a decent sized pool, playground, basketball court, fishing lake nearby, small arcade, and small camp store. It is a large campground that is spread out into smaller sections which makes it seem smaller than what it actually is. Our site by the creek was quiet. There is quite a bit of shade and nice sized lots. It is 15 minutes away from Lake Michigan. Montague and Whitehall are both very nice, quaint towns. It is on White River so if you like to canoe it would be perfect. - focchick

This is a small City owned park that is run by a wonderful couple. Very easy and welcoming check-in with direction to our site and help parking. Some people may consider the sights close, but we thought they were fine. They are gravel sights with a paved patio. We were at back of the campground so we didn't get much road noise. We came here to ride the paved bike trails, which there a miles and miles of, and they are awesome! The trail comes right up to the campground but you don't get strangers coming through. The towns of Montague and Whitehall are darling with plenty of unique places to eat if you enjoy eating out. White Lake and the Marina is right across the road. There is a grocery story right across from the campground so no traveling to get groceries. Cable TV, you have to get the box from the office but it was no hassle at all at check-in. Also good free WiFi. We would highly recommend. - ShirlC

We stayed at - and reviewed - this campground last year, so this is an update. It is still a very nice city owned campground. The sites are not real large but very neatly kept and each has a concrete patio. You can walk to the adjoining grocery store and ice cream stand. The bike trail system that is accessible from the campground is great. You still need to borrow a proprietary cable box to get the cable, which is somewhat a pain. The bathrooms are older but not overly used since almost all sites are full hook-up. Wi-Fi worked well except for the one day that it didn't work. There is usually a constant background noise that seems to come from a small factory that is somewhat close, but it isn't overly annoying. Overall a good campground and we will return when in the area. - RXA-ADM

Our site was at the far end of the campground which meant that we were furthest away from any road noise. Being a campground in the middle of town, I was a little concerned about noise - but found it to be extremely quiet. Sites were gravel with a concrete patio, some shaded and others open. - kluza2786

Wonderfully located and very quiet, River Farm is an ideal location for relaxing, fishing, boating or just strolling through the nearby towns of Pentwater, Hart, Silver Lake and state parks. It is near I-31 but far enough away to not be bothered by traffic noise or trains. Roads and sites are gravel and ample for big rigs with slideouts and awnings. Electric and water are excellent. Only a few sites are good for satellite TV reception but local TV has only 2 stations which breakup frequently. Owner lives on premises and is very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. - loneranger

This is a very quiet, well-maintained park West of Montague, MI. We were on site 3 which is level, paved and shaded. We had full hook-up but brought our own water. The beach is about a half mile west but you can walk down a two-lane dead-end road to get there. The play area for kids is small and about a quarter mile away but there is a large sandbox on the grounds, complete with buckets, shovels, etc. About half the sites are seasonal but the trailers are in good condition and everybody picks up and puts their stuff away when they leave. There are a number of sites that are grassy but most seem to be level concrete pads. I rated it an 8 just because it's so remote ( which made watching the meteor shower fun). I would have no problem going back. We camped there in a motor home. - AITG

Loved this place! Small, quiet campground with very nice grassy sites. No cable; WIFI was nonexistent, and cell phone (Verizon) service was very poor. Short walk to beautiful Lake Michigan. Only complaint was that we had to pay $5/day for a car pass even though we were already paying to camp there. Didn't make sense to me, but still a great value! - Bonnie66

There were no signs at our (northbound) exit for this County Park. We had to rely on our GPS which isn't always correct. When we did arrive near the end of Meinert Road, there was a sign for us to turn right into the campground. We noticed most campsites were occupied by fifth wheels and trailers, probably by seasonals for use during weekends. We stayed here mid-week and we were about the only people in the campground. This campground offers 67 campsites with water, electric and sewer hookups. It has a modern bathroom with showers and a sanitary dump station. Ice and firewood are offered for sale.
All sites were well maintained and not trashy. We selected a grassy site with 30 amp service as most 50amp sites were taken. There are lots of trees but we were very lucky to get satellite service, although we frequently lost the signal. We had no service for our MYFI or our cell phone but the campground does have WIFI.
We were disappointed that the camping area was about ¼ mile from Lake Michigan. The day use was at the end of the road at the beach. This campground was okay but a little out of our way for short stays, therefore we probably would not stay here again. - gatordan

My sister reserved this campground for a large family camping weekend. It seems to be an older campground, but overall, we had a good experience here. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kids enjoyed the playground and fun cycles. The fun cycles were $2.00 for a half hour, but they were free on Sunday. Our site was level and shaded, which was nice. My parents had a cabin, which was also nice. The main problem we encountered was that one of the sites we had reserved was right next to the road that led to the rustic section of the campground. That site ended up being only half a site because we couldn't put anything in or near the roadway. Do not reserve sites 31/32 for this reason. Our motorhome is 31' and I don't think a larger vehicle would have been able to maneuver through the campground. Lake Michigan is a short drive from the campground. - miyzfrider

Stony Haven? My kids call it ?dirty haven?. This was probably one of the dirtiest campgrounds that we have stayed at. We waited too long to get reservations at any other campgrounds over Labor Day weekend. While the campground owners were nice, and they would have done anything for you, the park could use a good cleaning and they need to cut down some trees. Although it was sunny when we were there, the sun never made it down to the park because of the many trees. My kids went to play on the playground and came back with grease on their clothes and more dirt. The showers and restrooms were ok at best. There was nothing to do. We did rent one of their pedal cars and found that it was again very dirty and hanging together with twine. Fun ride! We were thankful that it did not rain because then it would have become ?muddy haven?. We will never return to this campground. - crcmu93

Great park. Very spacious with level paved sites and roads. Nice clean fire pits. They clean fire pits and wash tables between occupants. Close to amusement and water park so good place for families. Helpful staff. Water pressure needed to be better. - 69 scotty

This was a very nice park. Lots of families staying for extended periods. If you are a smaller fifth wheel or a camper the spaces are well suited for you. Your RV will fit on the concrete pad & your tow car on the concrete space adjacent to it. If you are a larger motor home like us it is a tight squeeze to fit the tow car in. There is a dog park but it was off in a corner under the trees & looked like it would be loaded with mosquitos. There are plenty of places to walk your dog other than that. The laundromat was very nice. The office staff was very nice. The park is gated for security. You get a key card that you can drop in the box outside the office if you leave before the office is open. If you bring pets proof of vaccination is required at check in. We had no problem pulling in satellite signal. There is cable, too. The amusement park across the highway did not cause a problem while we were there, either with noise or traffic. - Connie's Co-Owner

Everything at this park is well done. The grass is green and cut; the pads are level, utilities are good, streets are wide, laundry is clean, pool is nice. It is the best place to stay in the area. - Freedom Bus
