Love this place! I love their Nutty Turtle Sundae with scooped vanilla. They have the best hot fudge, pecans, and real whipped cream! They are a little pricier than other places, but they don't accept tips and it's a nice touch that they give you your change in two-dollar bills and fifty cent pieces.

The ice-cream is always good here! My niece loves their cookie ice-cream sandwiches. I like their soft serve and sundaes! Plus they have a doggy water bowl for pets.

The kids really enjoy walking here from the campgrounds at Muskegon State Park Lake sites. There are a lot of sundays and concoctions to choose from! The people are always really nice but a double cone/cup is almost $5! The jr size isn't much less. It's a dollar more for a waffle. Since we can walk it is worth it... More

A nice little treat when you are walking around the campground. The ice cream is delicious and a little pricey.

We walked here via the little trail from the adjacent Muskegon SP Lake MI campground. It's a great location for all the campers! They had a good selection of flavors and ice cream creations. Prices were quite a bit higher than one would usually expect though, so be prepared. They have a few food options as well.

Made me remember being a kid and reading all the flavors and toppings and cones (cake or waffle?) and the "specials" (from sundaes to blends to shakes to....). And then when it's your turn, you ask for the same thing -- a double scoop in a cake cone, with butter pecan on the bottom and chocolate on the top. All... More

If you happen to be camping at MSP, you have to visit Ruth Ann's. It isnt hard to figure out when, as 3/4 of the park will start walking to the north end of the campground at the same time for ice cream. It is the perfect break when camping.
