The property owners are friendly and hardworking. Great fishing, amenities available. This is one of the first places I felt gave me a bang for my buck. Park near store and get great WiFi….I spent 14 days streaming, gaming and watching movies. This is campground is definitely a diamond in the sand.
Primitive sites are spacious, well spaced & reasonably flat. All sites are sandy with a raised fire ring, (no ground fires allowed). Walkable facilities are outhouses, although all campers may use the facilities in the RV grounds. Even if you don't need the power, etc I'd sugest the RV sites as they are a bit quieter, the highway noise at the primitive site did not diminish all night.
All Inclusive! If you love a campground 3 minutes from Lake Michigan with plenty of amenities, this is your place. The Mount Randall campground has 2 loops with all electric sites. The first loop on your left provides more privacy with pull in type shandy, sites. There are 2 or 3 small rustic cabins as well. The loop to the right, has more open sites that sit flat to the road. We camped here. Our 2 sites did not provide trees for hammocks or even a good laundry line. Both loops have a central bath house with individual showers opening off the central breezeway. There is a camp store with wood ice, snacks, fun stuff and things you forgot or never knew you needed! We visited during the pandemic and only 2 water pumps were available, but worked fine. There is a primitive/rustic campground as well and we may like that better as we prefer privacy and quiet over convenience.
The beach is a good one. There are 3 parking lots and plenty of sandy beach. You can climb the dunes and hike the dune trails, rent kayaks, or grab food from the concession area. There were also food trucks there when we visited.
Overall, a great choice for summer fun with the kids and I would think pretty gorgeous come fall too.
Wrapping up our recent tour of Michigan campgrounds, we caught some sun at the beach after a quick sprint up the dunes (actually just the 8-year old climbed to the top - the parents were too hot and tired). Alas, the beach showed heavy use with sand that was just a bit grittier than shores we visited in the northern mitten.
We found a quiet site (168) near a small playground with clean bathrooms and a camp store with a woodsy fun feel selling souvenirs, shirts, snacks, and scooter rentals. Minor concerns were the heavy trash that backed up at the dumpster after a busy weekend and the thick cloud of campfire smoke that lingers at bedtime when the land breeze shifts in. But hey, it’s camping.
Check in was easy but you might have to wait on a busy day. General store by entrance has mostly everything you need at slightly inflated prices. Lots of big RVs when we were there. You can hike or about a 5 to 10 minute drive to the beach. Huge, beautiful dunes on the beach.
Very clean and well-kept park. Lots of fun activities on the weekends for the kids and FREE! They have movie nights, we met Disney characters, did crafts, and enjoyed the barrel train & ice cream sundaes. The actual spots aren’t huge, but since the campground is smaller that wasn’t a shock. It was small enough for our kids to ride bikes around alone and they frequented the park, which we could see from our site. Jumping pillow & mini golf were also a hit. The showers were very clean & had good pressure & hot water. My main gripe was the pool. No steps to walk in so it was very hard for our 2 smallest kids to use it. Not a problem for older kids who can swim, but disappointing for smaller kids. *my husband went with a broken leg and got around there just fine thanks to it being such a small park.
I remember coming here when I was young but haven’t stayed here in decades. It was time to try it out again. We arrived around 5 or 6 and found lots of open sites on a Wednesday. They put us in a nicely wooded site with empty neighboring sites. We could see our neighbors and others walked by on the road so there were plenty of people in camp. There were water puddles in the road and some campsites. It rained during the night too. Our site is sandy with no grass which wasn’t as great with the wetness. However it’s camping at the dunes so it’s expected. The vault toilets are ok- one had standing water in the corner. Water is available a few sites down and a garbage bin is on the way out. We camped in the rustic loop- no electric or other hookups. There is a larger section with 2 loops that has these amenities. Showers are also located over there. It’s a longer walk or you can drive to the showers.
We tried hiking and found fallen trees blocking the path. There are other trails to choose from. Be sure to check out the beach and climb up the sand dunes.
This was a nice campground within a couple hours of Chicago.
Our site was horrid- a full hook up with a fire pit in the mud pond. We had mosquito soup for the rear of our very small campsite. It was a very expensive glorified parking spot, and the tiny pool was packed. There were a ton of kids getting into trouble, just pushing the limits of the staff. We will not return unless it's just for passing through- this was a disappointing staff for sure. They did have brand new yurts. We were next to a run down full time rv, who wasn't there for the weekend. We used their fire pit, since our was in mud and trees.
This was our first outing with our camper. Coloma wasn’t far for us, and it was worth it. Everyone was super helpful when we had questions. They had a hot tub and heated pool. Mini golf and bikes you could rent. The store was nice and lots to offer and the prices were very reasonable. Showers close by. All in all we had a great first experience and would recommend this campground. Very close to Lake Michigan and the beach!
