Overall Rating

We were apprehensive about this park after reading the reviews. The entrance was typical of a Thousand Trails, in need of repairs. Parking for check in and the check in process was easy, as usual you have to drive around and decide what sight you wanted. We started in the loop with the pull thru's and decided to try the other loop that was available to us. There were a couple other sites that were empty, but they were taken by annuals.

The site was not ideal, but we liked it better than the pull thrus. It looked a bit short, so we thought that we could angle it in. The pads are gravel based, but the outline is difficult to see. We ended up in the grass on one side and severely tilted on that side. We decided we needed to be more on the pad, we still needed blocks to level, but we managed to get level, but we left some pretty bad ruts behind. There had been a lot of rain in the area, it had dried up quite a bit by the time we arrived, but it was still bad. We were told the person that was in our site before us had to be towed out.

We had 50 amp FHU, but the hookups were on the opposite side of our rig, so we needed two fresh water hoses and our two sewer hoses barely reached. That isn't the case with all of the sites, just every other one, at least in our area. In addition, our sewer hookup was larger than the standard connector, making a seal impossible. We did not have a fire ring or a picnic table, but I suspect our table was one of the two on one of the empty annual sites. We probably could have had one moved to our site, but because of our sightseeing plans and predicted rains we decided to pass. We were really close to our neighbors, and because all the hookups are located at the back of the sites, their sewer water hoses ran through our site.

The bath house in our area was not open, it appeared that they were doing some work on it, and it really needed some work. We don't use them, so it wasn't a problem for us, but you would have a fairly long walk, or drive, if you needed a bath house. The pool was still empty and the gate was not operational, but we didn't see any people that didn't look like they belonged and felt safe. We had heard complaints of rust in the water, we checked our filter after four days and didn't see any evidence of rust, although the water was a bit soft for my taste. We had good AT&T signal and our spot was open so satellite wasn't a problem. About half of the pull thru sites had too much tree cover for satellite.

The location is convenient, easy access to Port Huron and even the Detroit area. The farmers market in Port Huron is one of the best we've been to and the St. Clair River location is beautiful.

More rain came and even a 1.5 days later there were still puddles under and around our neighbors RV and our grassy area was squishy. I know they can't control nature, but it would be nice if they could spend a little money on better drainage. The morning we left our neighbor moved to another spot that didn't look much better to us, but he felt it was higher ground. He was furious about the condition of the campsites, my husband agreed and thought this was one of the worst sites we have ever had.

I don't think we would stay here again.
