Camped here in early November and the grounds were just beautiful. The trees were colorful and covered the ground making for a pleasant to look at landscape. There were maybe 5 rvs in total in the campground making it feel very secluded. I'm sure this isn't the case in the warmer season but I can't imagine this campground is ever completely filled. The lady I talked to when registering told me the bathrooms and showers were closed in the off season yet all the bathrooms were unlocked And usable as well as a few shower stalls were unlocked and usable. Bathrooms and showers also looked very clean and well maintained. She also mentioned the water was not usable in the off season, I didn't use there water so I cannot comment on that. There was a short trail that we walked, maybe a mile long, that went along the lake shore and looped back around to the campground. not sure If there were more trails but I would think so as the campground is located in a state recreation area. It's located about 10 minutes off of 131 about 30 minutes south of Grand Rapids and 20 minutes north of Kalamazoo. All in all it was a lovely place to camp And would make a good central hub for you too check out what the lower mid Michigan area has to offer.
