This was a perfect camping trip. It was also a beautiful histrionic adventure. If you want a great camping experience camp at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping.

We stayed in a rustic cabin across from the camp store, playground & showers. It was perfect for our family. The lake was an easy 5 minute (or less) walk. The showers were hot and convenient. There was no table outside and the fire ring was pitiful if you expected to cook. Bring your own for cooking, otherwise it was a great campground for us. We are returning summer 2013 & will post another review.

Do you like going to bed at 10 pm when you’re on vacation? How about rude staff members? Do you like old, outdated shower rooms and rocky beaches? If so, mill creek is the campground for you! I used to go here with family when I was younger and booked for 5 days after a 15 year hiatus. To be honest, I wish I could forget those fond childhood memories because it disgusts me that they were at this place. I love the area and it’s too bad that this place is even part of it. This is a business first and a campground last. I was told by the owner that I should just go to bed at 10 after a petty complaint that my fire was still going and my radio was on ( at a low, reasonable volume) after quiet hours. This irks me, but that combined with the above-mentioned made for a miserable time. For a young adult like myself, this is not the place for me. When I plead my case to the owner, it went through one ear and out the other. I was basically told to conform or leave. It angers me to know that my family gave them business for all those years after seeing what this place has developed into.

I can honestly say that I have never stayed at a campground that was so tightly packed with rvs and campers. The sites are way to small for even our small MH (27') . I almost bakced over the neighboring campsites bikes to get off of the road. We couldn't sit outside because the neighbors were right there (within 10') at their picnic table , and it just felt very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were shoddy ( stalls don't lock and showers only have curtains, one right next another). Pool is quite small and it took 10 minutes to get there from campsite. No friendly staff there just ones that show up at the EXACT checkout time telling you to get out ( How FRIENDLY is that). I was 0 minutes late by their clock and 6 minutes early by mine , and they were right at my campsite . Very suprised how they treat guests, but I guess it is all about the money here. No fires , have to rent (for a quarter) a firepit bowl. Buy their wood also. If you like to be treated nice, need at least a 10' buffer around your camper or you have slides on your coach, i would not stay here. this campground is meant to make money and nothing else.

I usually always love this campground...the views of the bridge and mackinac island are wonderful...its nice to walk or bike around the campground too. the pool is always a nice temperature...not cold. i never get bored here or in the area...the cons are the small camp sites and the minimal size of fire that fits in the pie tin they rent for a quarter...lol

The nice part of the campground is that it is on the water and faces the Mackinaw Bridge. That's about the only positive aspect of this campground. Literally it the campers are packed in so tight that we could not even open up our awning or it would have brushed up against the camper next to us. The sites are also expensive when you consider what you get. I would not go here again... you are better off going to one of the state campgrounds in Cheboygan, Mackinaw City or St Ignace.

This place is very tight and the sites are run down. The power is located in an inconvient location and has grass and weeds growing through the gravel. If you have a large MH, their is no room for a picnic table and slides. We had a reservation for 3 nights, but left after the first night. This place has the potential to be a nice RV park if they just built some larger sites and updated the place. We would have been willing to pay more than 29.00 per night.

600 sites. 300W, 200S, 500E (20/30). One mile of shoreline, heated pool, showers, flush toilets, free shuttle to ferry, arcade, store, mini-golf, LP Gas, 2 playgrounds. There was a strange rule that the gate was closed from Midnight to 6:30 a.m. No indication as to what you would do if you had an emergency and had to get in or out. No motorcycles allowed. Beautiful, right on the shore of Lake Huron. Sorry folks, but they kept the office people inside of a screened-in office. If you ask anything out of the ordinary the answer is usually NO. Everything was pretty clean, the grass and landscaping could use some work, but it wasn't the start of the season yet. Their season here starts about July. OK, I'll admit that I have been spoiled by CG's in other parts of the country, however, we found a new campground rule we haven't found anywhere else. Their rule advises "no ground fires". However, they have "fire containers" (which appear to be very large hubcaps) which you can rent at the office for 25 cents per day. Now, if you buy your firewood from them, you get the "fire container" for free. How's that for entrepreneurship?

This is a very large campground - back-in sites directly on Lake Huron. We stayed in a lakefront site. All full hookup sites are really tight. Lakefront sites are tight too - and cost more ($4 extra), but you might as well get something if your going to be snug with your neighbor. Campfires are permitted, but we did not have one - we felt it was just not safe to do so being so cozy. They advertise the camp store and internet caf - but neither was open during our stay. Very close to the tourist area - including the ferry to Mackinac Island. $31/night - water, 30 amp, sewer, no cable. For the money the sites were way too narrow, no cable and only 30 amp service - but the lake view was wonderful and being close to the tourist attractions a plus. If we return to this area, we'd try another CG - as site size is important to us.

Beautiful water front sites, looking at the Mackinaw Bridge. This place is all about location, so we are OK with the very small sites and no shade. If you prefer a larger, shadier site, you cannot be on the water. Just depends on what you want.
