Stayed in a medium cabin with a bathroom for the weekend and had a great time. It was far enough outside of mackinaw city to feel like it was out of the way, but close enough to get into town within 10 minutes. The property itself was well set up with enough space between each lot that we felt isolated...

Early in the season lots of roads blocked. Customer service left a lot to be desired. Prime "bridge View" site was so narrow I couldn't get my bay doors open on one side and the picinic table had only one usable side because the other was in the bushes. Dogs were not allowed off the road...really? Would have given 2...

I stopped to visit this very large campground, as we have stayed here a few times and always had a good time. They've definitely made some improvements. Sites are bigger and more private. Sadly, some of the large shade trees have been removed. There is still one major section of the park they need to reconfigure for lot sites. This...

Thanks so much for staying with us and all the good words. Yes, we are working on upgrading the last of those small sites, in the meantime we offer them at a discount. We have named them as "small" and give the dimensions, so hopefully no one is disappointed. So - note to new guests - yes, please, if you...

We are a family of 6. We went with our 9, 7, 5, and 3 year old to Mackinaw for the week this past summer and stayed on one of the sites that was right on the lake. I will say they are VERY small campsites but with an entire grassy area a walk across the road in front of...

We stayed towards the end of the season for a long weekend (Oct 6 - 9) so it was quiet and a bit desolate. I booked a 6 person Bridgeview cabin and it did not disappoint. Before we got there, I was a little upset with how much I was paying per night but after seeing the cabin it was...

We stayed here due to the close proximity to town and were pleasantly surprised how nice it was, especially considering how large it is. Our site was quite large and felt fairly private with all of the trees around us. It is close to the lake, with several nice areas to enjoy the beach, even if you aren't in one...

Visited this campground last week and enjoyed our time there. This campground has exceptional views of the Mackinaw Bridge, and many amenities for families. The sites are average size, cable did not work, & wifi was poor. Would I return? Hmmm perhaps.

I am glad you enjoyed your visit. I am pretty sure you stayed with us (as we do the best views in the area), but I am not sure what you mean by the "cable did not work." We don't offer cable TV. If you were with us, I hope you reported the wifi not working when you were there....

My bf was visiting this summer from Vegas so we were trying to find fun ways to see some of the major landmarks in Michigan. I have stayed at this campground before and stumbled on the Icopod while reviewing site options. I knew we needed to check this out. Because the "tent" is already set up it made camping super...

We took advantage of the shoulder season lull between summer and the beginnings of fall color to take a quick trip up north. Reservations for this campground were online to the extent that you could fill out a request form, but then somebody had to call and nail everything down and get things settled. I appreciated this because their site...

Thanks for staying with us! Just wanted to mention, the Bridgeview full hookup narrow sites - can use a moveable fire ring. We provide them free, so you can put them where it works best. Most folks put them at the front of their site (where they can enjoy the view). Those narrow sites vary in depth, so if you...

The campground was very nice, lots to do. Bathrooms and showers were very well kept and clean. The camp store was stocked very nice with lots of supplies and extras. We went to Walmart in Sheboygan and the prices were almost comparable. The view was beautiful and we all had a wonderful vacation before school started. The staff was very...
