Excellent family RV Resort with lots for kids to do. The site we were given was a back-in that was about 6" low in the rear. This made leveling interesting. I don't like lifting the rear very high with jacks as our parking brakes are on the back wheels. Therefore, we could not get level and looking around at others all the 5th wheels were set up on several leveling blocks in the rear. For a short stay that was "ok" but for long stays it would not work for motorhomes. Landscaping on the drivers side made accessing the water compartment a challenge. We stayed in a motorhome. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here the end of June. We had a large concrete back in site #61. All utilities were in good shape and working properly, except for the cable which was very fuzzy. It was hot the entire weekend. Never had a low voltage issue. Water pressure was good. Park is very clean and they work to keep it that way. This is a mostly seasonal resort with about 50 or so overnight spots. But everyone was friendly. Pool was great with awesome views of the river. The marina area was also very nice and relaxing. We will be back again and probably rent a boat! We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

A very nice campground with wide roads and easy navigation. This place is a resort and has some really nice amenities for all ages. Site were spacious and well appointed and hook ups were good. This place was clean and landscaped. A really relaxing stay in a resort quality atmosphere. I would stay here again. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful resort! The grounds are gorgeous, the sites are wide, and amenities are great. We had a delicious pizza at the General Store on the river. The prices for snack bar food there were very reasonable, and the food was good. The pool area is beautiful. We were on a grass site right next to 8 Mile Road, and it was loud. I would choose a concrete site or a a grass site further from the highway. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were there as part of a late season rally. There was still a lot to offer even with as much closed up as was. It is a very pretty setting and far from most of the hubbub. The only draw back is that the sewer connection is not with the other utilities and we had to disconnect to pull forward enough to dump. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Large well-maintained resort. We stayed overnight before heading to Big Rapids. Since it's late in the season, the park was very quiet with most facilities closed for the winter.

Nevertheless, the grounds were immaculate with concrete pads, grass surrounding the site and fire ring with patio table. Most sites are back in with some pull through with ours the latter. There are basketball courts, a small soccer field, sand volleyball and tennis courts along with a marina.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

I reviewed this park last Labor Day, and hit it pretty hard for not enforcing their posted rules. I even said we wouldn't be back. Well, due to this being so convenient to family we wanted to visit, we did come again, and I'm glad we did. We had a totally different stay this year. Security was very visible all weekend, and we had no problems with loud campers after quiet hours. Same good items from last year's review with an addition- they put a slide in the pool which the grandkids really enjoyed. All employees we had contact with were friendly and helpful. The packed gravel sites are still not level, but certainly workable- it's worth the effort for the size of the sites. The only real "complaint" was the wifi, which experienced campers know not to count on especially on a holiday weekend. We would certainly come again, and are already talking about meeting our relatives here next year. River Ridge, thanks for changing my opinion. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

It's always difficult for me to review a campground. At least for me, anyway. There are so many factors that aren't necessarily reproducible, or systemic of the campground, that impact my impression. You know what I mean; bad weather, inconsiderate neighbor, RV problem... At any rate, our stay here went off without a hitch. Wonderful neighbors. Gorgeous weather. Trailer in perfect working condition. So, I'll try to dispassionately review for the remainder of my commentary: very clean, and well manicured. Trash pickup. Neighbor told me about the "hot boat" weekend on the Muskegon River. The pool and adjacent patio area would be an absolutely primo place to hang out and watch. I wonder if management would let you set up a barbecue there? Beautiful views. Children loved the water slide. Tennis courts. Large playground and play set. Roads are large and excellent condition. No tents was inconvenient for us, but I can understand it keeps the riff-raff out. Top notch operation. They pay attention to the details and it shows. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is by far one of the Greatest RV Resorts in the Great Lakes area! They have everything you could ever want while vacationing in your RV!

They have a full service Marina including Boat Rental and a fully packed Store! The restaurant at the Marina is excellent and even delivers to the campsites!

We have stayed here on many occasions and have made many friends that also frequent River Ridge. There are a lot of seasonals and they are very welcoming to us vacationers.

They have some really nice pull through sites for big rigs that allow you to even keep your trailer connected!

They are expanding again and we are hoping they incorporate Buddy Sites!

The GM of the Resort is amazing!! He works like a machine day and night and always takes the time to make sure everyone is happy and that they have everything they need!!

They have a great security crew that works around the clock to keep everyone in check which I like!

I highly recommend River Ridge RV Resort for your next vacation!! We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Great family park with lots of things to do. Playground, large pool, tennis courts, basketball hoops, marina with boat launch, very good store and plenty of spots to put your trailers.

This was so close to be rated excellent. But when the "face" of your resort, the person who works the front office, is unfriendly and close to rude, it places a bad image of the stay. This happened to me three times. The blonde lady, probably in her 40's, needs to be retrained or let go. Would still go back but they need to fix her. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

The good: nice picnic table and fire ring. Average width site, but very deep- probably 50' of grass to site behind. Campground well stocked for food, camping and marine. Kids enjoyed pool.
The bad: Site was packed gravel, but not level. Back corner of site fell off to the point we needed an extra step which we didn't have. OK, it was a holiday weekend, but I have never camped in such a loud campground. We were in the grass site section. Many of the campers were seasonal. Friday night had music blaring and people trying to shout over the music. We turned the AC fan on, and still couldn't sleep with all of the noise. Someone must have complained, because Sat and Sun nights were quieter, but still needed the fan's white noise to sleep. Almost every site had a dog and they all barked every time someone walked by their site. Golf carts everywhere, some driven by kids pulling other kids on skateboards. Boats parked along the road in front of sites made it difficult to drive down some of the roads. We like a more laid back camping experience. We thought the resort would be more to our liking. We read the rules before reserving, and thought this would be a good place for us. I think every rule in their list was ignored for this weekend. Maybe a non-holiday weekend would have been better. This would be a good campground for those who like the party camping scene, but we won't be back. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice RV resort! We were impressed from the beginning. The grounds were very well maintained, the staff was very friendly. The amenities were awesome. Our back in site was huge, big enough for our 33ft motorhome and jeep side by side and level. The camp store/grill was very nice. The view of the water was beautiful. The seasonal campers kept their sites clean and were friendly. The only down for us was really our mistake...we turned into the marina entrance by accident and had a hard time turning our rig and tow vehicle around. We would definitely stay there again if in the area again. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice RV Resort. Great family park. Lots for kids to do. Good everything - pool, playground, utilities, paved roads and sites. In some parts of the resort trees were planted close to the road and now have grown to the point that backing into a site can be a challenge. A few pull-through sites are newly available. The Good Sam discount is now gone, as is daily garbage pick-up. Sites are not overly big so parking at the site can be an issue for bigger RVs. Some campers park in the lot near the Welcome Center and walk to their site. Lots of modified golf carts that travel at speeds well over the posted limits so kids and at times adults need to be careful. We have stayed here several times in the past and will return. We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, full service, family friendly campground resort. It is geared for mostly large travel trailers, motor homes and permanent seasonal use. Our 23 foot AS was one of the smaller rigs! If you want any imaginable amenity, with not so much privacy, this is your destination! Apparently ownership has recently changed, in the last 2 years. Check in staff a little disinterested, but may have been anecdotal...Make sure not to check in before 3pm or out after 1pm, or you will be charged $5 for each 2 hours early or 2 hours late. Lots of planned activities for families/movie nights with popcorn at the clubhouse. Great store, marina, fishing available, very clean and nice bathhouses. A winner for families! Not for the outdoor, hiking enthusiast... We camped at River Ridge Resort in a Travel Trailer.
