I was surprised to be the first to review this campground. I expected that there would be many who had been through this site/area before, but happy to break new ground!

Pros:

  • The owners are friendly and helpful. They take a great sense of pride in their establishment and ensure the campers and others are following the rules.
  • The campground seems filled with mostly families as well as groups of outdoorsy folks looking to use the proximity for sports.
  • Nice little store and restaurant at the main entrance.
  • The seasonal campers we met were friendly and helpful. We received at least 2 tips from the neighbours that turned out to be great recommendations.
  • Air hoses for bikes at the entrance.
  • They rent things like bikes, bike trailers, and a few other things. Super useful for trying out things you might be on the market for.
  • Bathhouses are clean.

Cons:

  • If you are looking for full hook-up there aren't sites. There is a dump station near the bathhouse.
  • The sites are a bit small and close together, but for the most part you are hopefully coming here to enjoy the area.
  • Wifi speed is so-so. I found the pings and stability wanting if you are trying to do a few VTC or remote work. I ended up tethering to my T-mobile phone.

All in all one of our favourite sites. We will be back. Frankfort is an amazing area and Betsie is a great place to explore it from.
