Family Friendly

We came here for a fall camping weekend. Kids loved going on wagon ride to find the pumpkins and then decorating them. They really enjoyed the glow wagon ride. Root beer floats Saturday night were great! Loved that they had big blow up activities for kids to do. Sites were very tight. We enjoyed being right on playground.

Family Friendly

Nice smaller sized family friendly campground. Enjoyed having activities to do, the jump pillow and pool!

Lots to do

We enjoy Triponds for camping! There is a lot to do to keep kids busy. We were there one year and had no issues with our site but last year it rained all weekend and our site was super muddy! If it's not rainy it's a super fun campground! We still enjoyed our weekend despite being muddy

Staff is very friendly.

Enjoyed having a pond, pool, playground, jump pillow and more!

Hoffmaster

We love Hoffmaster when going with the tin can tourist rally for the weekend but not our favorite for a family camping weekend. The beach is a long hike from campsites. Most campsites are small. The bathrooms are clean and well kept. The sites we were on for a friends camping weekend were very dirty and dusty however when we went back this year I saw they did build them up and add some gravel. We enjoy biking around the campground and waking by the creek. There is a playground area for kids.

This Campground has been closed since 2010

Closed forever likely

Peaceful and lowkey

This was the first campground my husband and I went to after buying our camper and we continued to go back for a couple years before getting a seasonal spot. If you are looking for quiet and low key this is the place to go it is right on the lake so you can kayak, fish, swim, or even take the dog to play in the water. Everyone is very friendly and helpful

Fantastic

Endless amounts of stories of my childhood come from these grounds love it

Natural

Peaceful. But off of m21 and located not too far from ionia county correctional facility (jail). Very beautiful but buggy.

Needs updating

Family friendly. Offers golf. Wish they didnt sell out half of the 18 hole course. Has a swimming pool and camp store. Close to the Boulder Ridge Zoo

Great get away

Clean, family friendly, beautiful. Take a walk through the equestrian to check out the horses.

Kids complex

Not a campground by any means

Nice Large Wooded Sites

This was a pleasant surprise to have what felt like a semi private lot nestled in the woods. We had site 1 and felt we were close to a bathroom shower house as well as to the entrance. The restrooms were kept reasonably clean, and there's a nice playground by the bath house.

The negatives? It's a drive to the beach, which is rather crowded on nice Saturdays (to be expected)… there's no shortage of mosquitoes (but hey, you're in the woods, right? Bring a thermacell! )… and the midnight snack bandits we call raccoons are not going to hide from you. We had one traverse along our site while cooking dinner, but he left us alone and kept on his way. We saw several others during our stay… keep food and trash stored away!

In all we are very likely to return someday!

Amazing

Definitely the best camp ground in West Michigan! Clean sites, friendly staff, and many amenities. Camp store, laundry, showers and bathrooms, huge pool, hot tub, pickle ball courts, kids play ground, bikes, scooters, and kayaks for rent (with a kayak launch) and boat slips on the water. They have access to a dog park as well. Home away from home!

Nice park

Good fun park. Some of the sites are on the small size. Had we not arrived early we would not of been able to get our 30’ trailer in our site. Also had concerns of poison ivy on our site. We had family staying that weekend too so we were able to spend our time at their much larger site. Overall was a fun park with a nice beach. Dump station moved quick which was nice. We happen to be camping same weekend as the vintage camper show so that was a great experience.

Lake Michigan

Some site have lots of shade. nice Camp store Lake place to hang out on the beach on Lake Michigan

Quiet Campground

Our family enjoyed this quiet, secluded campground in South Haven. Our site was on a corner lot and couldn't have been more perfect for our stay. Large fire pit and picnic table available at every site. There is a small path that leads to the beach. Best of all, warm showers everyday!

no overnight stays or tent sites. 7 night minimum stay.

Awesome spot!

Amazing spot away from the city! The owner of the place is very accommodating and pleasant to be around. Private lake with no motors so it is very quiet and peaceful!!!

Very friendly and accommodating, kids loved it, beautiful lake!

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. The gift shop met most of our needs and the owners were very friendly. The kids and dog really enjoyed the playground, swimming in the lake and jumping off the floating pad. There were little cabins and trailers for rent but we had our own camper. There were also canoes and things to rent but we did not partake-fairly priced. One star removed due to the close proximity of the spots. But all in all we had a really nice time and will go back if in the area. Some geocaches near the campground and hit up Bullseye Market Place in Vandalia MI. Awesome meat and produce, bakery and local goods! We went back twice.

Very nice, clean and spacious!

It’s not too far of a walk from the beach side and it’s not located too far from town so if you needed anything it wouldn’t be a waste of gas. It’s spacious between other campground sites and very well secluded!

Nice rustic campsite with lake and walking paths.

Big sites, many with pull through sites. Kids area and pit toilets are close.

Great Shoreline Beach

We camped here one night last summer on the way to Ontario. Its a large state park near the resort town of South Haven. The campsite was very crowded and full of local campers. The sites are on top of each other with no privacy or shade. The check in process was a mess. They did not have sufficient staff to handle the crowds during peak afternoon checkin. The facilities were old and in need of rear. The camp had overflowing trash cans everywhere. The highlight is the popular beach and sandy bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. This is worth a day visit if you are in the area. I can’t recommend this one due to the overcrowding and poor facilities.

Family campground

Great family owned for generations. Not many private campgrounds around anymore. Close to holland city activities. Sites are level with full hookups 50 amp. Owners are very accommodating to your needs. Bathrooms are old but very clean. Might be filled up during holidays. Easy access off highway.

First to Review
This place has great potential but the bathrooms need some attention.

Overall this campground was fun. It’s on a golf course which is something new and exciting! There was a live band there on the Saturday night we were there, they were AMAZING! As good as some of the singers I’ve seen in downtown Nashville. The bathrooms are in terrible shape. They need major repairs. I did see the staff cleaning them several times but they are in such awful shape it didn’t really make a difference. This place has the potential to be a great campground if they would freshen up the paint and repair all the issues with the restrooms and showers.

Something for everyone

MMichigan State park with large sites and lots of privacy.  $25per night with electric.  Several no wake lakes for kayaking, canoeing and fishing. One lake with swimming beach. Lots of trails for hiking,  horses and mountain bikes. Roads quiet and could easily ride your road bike to nearby bike paths. I loved the lack of lights in the park at night making for a beautiful night sky.

Always a go to place

I have stayed here quite often. The park is a typical state campground. The campsites have good space and isolation from other sites. The electrical was updated so alls it’s have their own hook up but some of the older boxes can have issues. The site I was on had the 30 amp plug that was not working.

There is a lot to do here; fishing, horseback riding. Mountain bike trails, lake with beach so if you get board it’s your fault. The mountain bike trails are challenging and will provide a good workout.

I will stay here again and again.

Not a Resort

This place is on redo mode when we went in 2018. It is seriously struggling with operations. Pool is extremely small, and seasonal group is rowdy and ruff. Not a Resort.

Huge and has so much to offer

Wow! Three lakes, hiking, biking and horse trails, showers, camp host and super quiet this past week while there. Not many campers, but everyone there seemed pleasant and were quiet. Deep sites, electric if you so desire, firepit and tables. I use a tent. Driving from the west through Augusta is a treat…so pretty. Civilization not far at all. Fishing, beach, play areas and an amusement park for mountain bikers! No alcohol. Will return!

Exactly what you would expect from a State Park

It's clean. It's well laid out. It's well staffed. It's near Holland, MI and Lake Michigan beaches. It has electricity only - no water or sewer in campsites. It's beautiful and piney and full of poison ivy and mosquitoes because it's in Michigan. Suck it up and enjoy the view.
