This campground is our favorite! We stayed in the new cabin 5 and we loved it. The owners are so friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms are clean and well lit. Pool was heated and very clean. Thank you for the great stay, we will be back next year!

Beautiful private campground. Pool at main lodge. Lots of hiking trails. Campsite are spacious and equipped with a fire ring for campfires. Utilities are available on many sites, as well as a couple cabins. Our cabin came equipped with dual lofts and also half-size refrigerator, picnic table, air conditioning and heat. Our cabin could potentially sleep 8 people having 6 individual beds and a futon in the main room that could comfortably sleep 2 adults. Note: the lofts are best left for the kids due to lack of headroom clearance. Futon in main area, refrigerator and picnic tables in main living area, and a semi private master bedroom for the adults. Old growth trees on rolling hills and beautiful scenery. Wildlife abound. This campground exemplifies the best that Northern Michigan camping has to offer. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Kalkaska RV Park and Campground. 5-stars.
