Stayed here for the first time over Labor Day weekend. The check-in process was very smooth, and you could tell that the plan for a busy weekend was well thought out. Check-in included not only a map of the campground with your site highlighted (and how to get there), but the inside was a map of the surrounding area - including attractions, local restaurants, laundry mat and even directions to the nearest hospital! Very well thought out.
Typically, we camp in State parks, so camping at Mackinaw Mill Creek Campground was new for us. I was impressed by many things while we stayed there. 1) People really seemed to obey the rules. The campground really does quiet down after 10, and if you feel anyone is being too loud there is a number you can call and an employee will stop by the noisy site (given to you at check-in). 2) There are many activities you can do right in the campground - mini golf, a swimming pool, an arcade... 3) There is a very well stocked camp store! I'm still getting into the swing of packing my own trailer - so I forget things! Almost everything I needed was available at the camp store (dry shampoo was the ONLY thing I couldn't find!), and even my husband commented that he was amazed how reasonable the prices were. The camp store also had a great selection of cute sweatshirts, decor items, and lots of great souvenirs! 4) The employees were all very helpful and friendly. Almost every employee who drove by our site said "hello" on their way by. 5) It is CLEAN! Keep in mind the number of people who camp here at once - this place is clean. I never saw a dirty bathroom - not even paper on the floor. The showers were clean, and I literally saw an employee walking around sweeping cobwebs off the sign posts and light poles! 6) Great location. Mackinaw Mill Creek is near to everything, and if you don't want to drive into town, you can take the handy shuttle from the campground to the Star Line dock. Sure, some people will complain that it is $5 on Labor Day (only, free the rest of summer) - but you don't have to worry about finding parking either!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mackinaw Mill Creek and can't wait to camp there again sometime next season.
