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

The kids really enjoyed the park. Being a fall weekend, there were a lot fewer people that we're used to compared to when school is out. The sites were nice with some privacy, .except ours. There was a path to the restrooms that went next to our site and ran about 4 feet from our fire ring. The constant trickle of peopling going to and from the bathrooms made it awkward while we tried to sit around the fire eating a meal. Some of the smokers had no problem walking by exhaling cigarette smoke in our direction. The ranger station sold ice and firewood at reasonable prices; however, the firewood was wet even though it was stored in a shed. I have had this problem at all Michigan state parks. Their firewood distributor is selling them unseasoned wood. The second night, I drove a few miles down the road and bought good dry wood. Overall, this is a nice state park in a great location with lots of available activities. We will stay here again but will be sure to avoid site 94. - Brewstar

Park has paved wide roads with all sites paved. Most will accept big rigs and sites have vegetation isolating from most other sites. Power pole is shared and could be up to 100 feet away. Water is available in many areas of each of two campgrounds. Beach is very clean and convenient. Disc Golf course is in the park as are bike, hike, and horse trails. Park personnel were very nice and helpful. Only one person can use the dump at a time and could be a hangup on busy days. Restrooms were newer ones of Michigan state parks. We will return. - dalenoel

Very nice shady park. The campsites may challenge the bigger rigs. Sites are paved but heavily surrounded by trees and shrubs. Power pedestals are not at sites, they are shared and can be anywhere from 25' to 100' away. Nice lake and beach. We travel with no kids, but we did notice they have a nice up to date play set near the camping and more equipment near the beach. Only marks off are for the slightly dated bathhouse. Typical for most Michigan State parks. - buzzards27

Mostly seasonal campers. Way off the beaten path - we drove down a lonely dirt road to get there. Difficult to find a level spot to park MH, but electric was good and water pressure excellent. Our site was downwind of the pit toilets (encased in a building, but still quite stinky). Good place to walk or ride a bike. Well-maintained lawns and sites. A lot of friendly ducks. River access if you are so inclined. - Forest Woods

We've stayed here in our trailer & now in our 5th wheel. These folks are friendly & accommodating. The community is also very family friendly.
The riverside sites can not be beat.
We book many of our Holiday Weekends here. - jbgrace

Very clean, grassy, peaceful, quiet & well maintained. They even spray nightly for mosquitoes. Lots of seasonals at this park, and all that we talked to were very friendly. Not a lot of frills here, but if you like good old backwoods camping like we do, then this is it! Currently there are no showers, but we see the construction happening to build what appears to be a nice large shower facility. Check-in was fast and easy. The fire pits are all positioned on riverside, with plenty of distance from RV. We will definitely come back soon. - 2gaycampers

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

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

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

Nice park with big green space for kids to play. Very friendly people and very nice staff. We would stay again. The only reason they didn't get a 10 was no discount. - Psushu

We came in at the end of their season . Although I saw wounded warrior plaques they do not off discounts. Had horse shoe stakes installed, the pit was not set up. All other items were put away. They offer cable TV, but I would have stayed home for that. - mac5354

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

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

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

This campground is set way off the road and provides a very nice country setting. A variety of different lots to choose from. Many of them shady and private. We took advantage of the hiking trails and really liked the part through the woods and over the creek. The bridge was out on the trail, but I think it just made the hike more fun. The beach has improved with much better sand than the previous year - although it is a distance from the campground and you will probably need to drive there. There were a lot of fishing boats on the water and people seemed to be reeling them in. There is also a horse campground too, so if you like horses take a walk through there. The playground has little to offer with only swings and a sandbox. The bathrooms were clean and the showers appeared to be too. Roads were paved so decent bike riding with a mountain bike trail. People were very friendly and most were local. - focchick
