Painted Rocks RV Park and Campground

Location: Christmas, Michigan

Webpage: RV Park

General Description: Painted Rocks RV Park is a brand new park 5 miles west of Musining, Michigan and 15 miles from Painted Rocks National Lakeshore.  All of the sites are full hookups, with a few pull through sites available.  Every site has a picnic table and fire ring with free WiFi throughout the campground.

Impressions:

1) When we stayed there the RV Park had only been open for 2 weeks and was still a work in progress.  The check-in office was still under construction and there was not yet a country store.  I was disappointed that they cleared ALL of the trees from the campground so it was like camping in a big dirty field.  So far there was very little grass, but they are working on it.  The WiFi was excellent even though we were not close to the office and they installed additional repeaters at the bathroom while we were there.

Campgrounds

2) Like the rest of the campground, the bathrooms were brand new and still needed installation of things like toilet paper and soap dispensers.  It was nice for a change to use a brand new facility.  The staff are all young and eager and could not have been nicer or more helpful.

3) The location for visiting Painted Rocks National Lakeshore could not be better.  There is even a casino within 0.5 mile of the campground.
