As others have noted, the new owner is doing all she can to make this a go-to place. The campground is old-fashioned in lots of ways (limited number of sites, central community area, LOTS of lovely old trees). The little park in the center has games and a firepit and is lit up at night for folks to gather, and they do; families play foosball and ping pong while others sit by the fire. Very dog-friendly. Grounds and facilities are clean and well-maintained despite hurricane damage. If problems come up, management’s commitment is to find workable solutions. We’d come back.
The owner of the CG said their goal is to do really well at serving campers passing through, and they are succeeding. CG is designed for easy in and out, but everything is super clean and fastidiously maintained. Grounds are nice too—huge grassy area and pretty creek. We appreciated everything about the place.
Sites are spacious, bathhouses are clean and well-maintained, lots of trails for walking and biking. Campers are friendly and respectful. Hosts were very helpful. Firewood is available in the evenings.
I took my kids here about 25 years ago and remembered it fondly. It’s every bit as nice now. Views of Lake Erie are spectacular. Nice walking trails, and there’s a disc-golf course and playground. Bathhouses are clean. Nice old trees and a few historic buildings around. Really comfortable. We couldn’t get a lake-side site but that would be spectacular.
Wisconsin campgrounds were crowded on the weekends this summer, and we weren’t able to find a public option so landed here in mid-September. Hosts were brusque, and we started our stay by picking up trash around our campsite, ignoring cans crushed into roadways and general tiredness of the campground. Virtually all sites are for seasonal campers; some maintain sites lovingly, and it appears that the place was at one time a thriving kind of community. But quite a few sites are pretty ragged, music was loud at night, and it was generally just kind of depressing. Was glad to get back on the road.
We spent three nights at Canoe Harbor in mid-September 2020 and thought it was wonderful. Campsites were spacious and had nice stands of trees in between to provide privacy. Fire rings had a great design. Vault toilets were kept clean and stocked. Paths from campsites connect to the Au Sable and to hiking trails. We loved this campground.
Tub Run Road is a rough (but pretty) ride to the campground. Once you hit the property, everything is well-maintained. Roads are easy to navigate and equipment all works well. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Bathhouses are kept clean. Ice and firewood are available on site. Lots of seasonal campers fill their space to the brim with tent garages, so the Creekside loop, at least, feels a little like a suburban street, but still quiet. Creekside sites felt smaller and more crowded than lakeside sites, which open onto the beach and lake. Guests were very friendly and considerate of quiet hours. A number of families were joining across generations and campsites, which was nice. Easy access to local attractions.
Arrived around 5 pm on a Monday to ample options for sites. We wanted a flat, electric-only spot for our truck camper and near (but not too near) a bathhouse. Easy to find this: sites are well-laid out and there are multiple bathhouses, all very well-maintained (crisp paint jobs) and very clean. Sites on the lower perimeter will get road noise but interior sites were very quiet. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Campground connects to a couple trails, 5 min drive to main park office and “attractions.”
