Nice campground with clean restrooms, good trails and nice and close to the river. Everyone knows everyone but is still nice to "strangers" and will to talk and be friendly with you. But if you want a quiet place on the weekend, forget it. The 10 pm quiet time is non-existent, it is currently 10:10 pm and someone has a radio on so loud the whole campsite hears it. The previous night, the site next to us had a party loudly till maybe till midnight. I guess if you are in a RV you can block it out, but not in a tent. This seems more for RV people and not tent camping in relation to the noise.

Horrible place to camp. Staff was belligerent, and uncompromising. The way some of the park rules are enforced are ridiculous, 10pm reduced noise apparently means the park staff comes by and tells you to go to bed. No sitting up to talk around a campfire, being threatened to have the police called for conversations at a normal indoor volume while coordinating a family into settling in to camp for the night. All by 10:30 by the way not midnight or early am. What's the plan if the wind starts rustling the trees to loudly at night? Cut them all down? I have lived in the area for almost 40 years and have never had such a disappointing experience. My last time planning a family event or camping trip on these grounds.

We love it here, this our second year at the park and would come back again. The water is beautiful and you get to watch the large ships pass by on the river. The park is clean with excellent walking trails and is very dog friendly.

Stayed here from 7/6/18-7/8/18 at Site 168 in a 31.5 ft travel trailer. It was the post holiday weekend, so the place was pretty full. There was a bit of a wait to fill up with water, as well as dump out at the end, but the volunteers made sure everything ran smooth. Our site had a nice large tree providing adequate shade throughout the day, but a lot of the sites have minimal or no tree cover. (The Wagon Wheel section located in the rear of the park is almost all shade) Most sites are back in, but the corner sites were typically pull through. The most scenic sites were definitely along the water, being able to watch boats and freighters. The bathrooms were pretty large and clean, and even after an onslaught of fish flies, they swept them up pretty quickly in the morning. The playground consisted of a few swings, a slide and a sandbox. They did have an area that contained horseshoes, volleyball and cornhole boards (Bring your own bags!) in a field just south of the campsites. This park was also nice in that it has a gun and archery range. I believe I saw some trails, as well, but I did not take advantage this trip. And while the infractions didn't bother me, there were handfuls of lots with at least three vehicles parked on them (2 max) and there was a large group of people that were partying loud until at least midnight, so I don't know how much faith I have in the rangers making people follow the rules. All in all it was a nice park and would probably stay here again.

The park is nice with a great view of the St. Clair river. Too bad that the staff is hard to spot and the bathrooms need more love. Some campers also ignore the other and again since no staff around, drive too fast and make all sorts of dust.
