“Nicely maintained, tight spaces, end units best”

Nicely maintained but spaces are tight. I got an end space & it faced the nature trail and pine/birch forest. It was lovely. Nice small pool & clean laundry facilities.

“Clean, nice staff, quiet”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

Overall Rating

The sites are the usual, a bit close to each other, but full hookups are great! Met everyone on staff over the 4 days and they were all delightful. Great phone signal and free wifi. Love hearing the low horns in the distance of the boats on the lake. Very pet friendly area - especially Mackinac island, and the koa is a stop on the sheplers ferry bus route, so that's nice and easy. There's an international dark sky site nearby where you can see more stars than ever. If you have extra days pop up to Taquemenon falls in The UP. Its magical!

“Not recommended”

Overall Rating

OK campground but I would strongly suggest a state park (Wilderness SP and Straights SP are great) over this KOA until improvements are made. The sites are very small and mostly dirt (we had poison ivy at ours and were told to keep the kids away from the edge of the woods). Some sites share electrical sources so you may have cords from other campers stretching across your site. Plus, they have A LOT of rules including high fees for visitors and no hammocks or clotheslines. The worst part is the firepits. They consist of small old rusty wheels set nearly flush with ground. Some are at an angle and very dangerous to use. We had several near disastrous incidents with small kids and I had to park my truck over ours to keep people from tripping in it when not in use. Not acceptable! Comparing the price to what they charge and provide at state parks, it's not worth your money until they fix the firepits.

On a positive note, most of the staff are friendly and the location is great! It has a lot of potential.

UPDATE: Management is unprofessional, cowardly, and lacks even the most basic customer service skills. After posting my review and management responded, my wife and in-laws were sent emails banning the family from the park due to this review. This was an unprovoked retaliation for my honest review and the owner refuses to answer our calls for an explanation (hence the cowardly description). I would recommend finding a different place to stay if you value custumer service and basic safety. There are other options in the area including Mill Creek, Wilderness State Park, and Straights State Park.
