This place leans toward permanent sites. In fact I didn't see any other campers just passing through. Our site didn't have any shade. The gravel drives needed better maintenance as there were large mud puddles everywhere. We also couldn't sit outside due to the heavy sewer smell. Another section of the campground had a major road right beside it which made it very noisy. Train tracks lined another side.

From experience, when my kids were small, it was always a nice, clean expectation to visit a Yogi Bear park. It seems that was when this campground was cleaned last! Didn't read the reviews first! And should have... We asked for full hookups and have water and electric and the sewer cap is sealed shut. There is no Wifi/TV, although the write-up in Good Sam says 2 per site. There are train tracks 3 trailers away and it's quite loud with very long trains going by often! It is $49 nightly and the name and address on the receipt are all misspelled. I am extremely upset at this booking, since I always use Good Sam for sites to visit.

You have to be extremely desperate to stay here. 932 site mostly long term renters. IMMEDIATELY next to I-94 with a noise level that was deafening. Railroad on other side to add to noise. Available site are mixed in with full time renters. Some site maintained very well, other in very sad shape. I can not imagine looking forward to a weekend "getaway" at the lake. On top of noise and condition they charge up to $56.00 / night. Sorry, but we do things twice, first time and last time.

I don't know how this site obtained a decent review. After 48 days of travel we were looking forward to a peaceful camping experience. We reserved two nights here due to the Yogi Bear name and the good sam ratings. This was a mistake. And we could not get a refund. Negative issues: about 900 sites but 800+ were owned. Most sites were in horrible state of repair. 50% were full time homes. Not a campground. Train tracks were in constant use and about 50' from campsites. Roads were mud with deep potholes. And difficult to travel. This is not a safe area. Very dated with no visible updates. Power was out most of the day. Were were there on a weekend and most of the owners were there. Very crowded. Restrooms were dated and not maintained. Laundry was not used. Crowded with smokers. Not clean. Positive findings. None
