Impressions:

1) Indigo Bluffs RV Resort is a high end resort, with a price tag to match, and overall is a very nice RV resort.  We had one of their high end sites with a concrete porch that was nice when it rained.  These sites are fairly tight with little room beyond the porch to the next site.  However, the room was sufficient for our needs.  All the hookups were conveniently located.  Be aware that you need to have a water pressure regulator as their water pressure is very high.  Their backflow regulator at the faucet would spew water every couple of minutes to relieve the pressure caused by our pressure regulator.

Campgrounds

2) The office and swimming pool were very nice and modern.  However, their bathrooms were old but kept clean and functional.

3) Be aware that being this close to Sleeping Bear (the Visitors Center is just 3 miles away) this park is packed every weekend and very busy even during the week in the summer.  Reservations are needed at least 6 weeks in advance and even then the only open site for the weekend was their most expensive sites.
