I found this place by mistake while searching for firewood for a trip to the area and camping at another campground http://www.torchlakefirewood.com/ I couldn't say enough nice things about this place, it is truly a gem! Besides having the "Wood Guy" right outside the park with good dry wood to have a great campfire (3 for $10, $35 half, $65 full face cord), there is a nice hardware/general store/gas station with diesel around the corner on US31, a DNR beach access for Torch Lake just east of US31 on Hwy 88, where we could take the dogs to swim in the lake. Torch Lake just had a few small rocks near shore but otherwise a sandy bottom.
Many of the sights were plenty spacious for our 35 foot three slide fifth wheel. The sites are up on a bluff, but there is a nice stairway down to the sandy beach, but the lake was full of rocks, basically flat but completely covered in rocks, so water shoes are a nice thing to have, but not a complete necessity like camping on some parts of Huron or Superior.
We picked a site and a worker stopped by in the evening for payment, though we stopped by the office on a few occasions during our stay to purchase a t shirt, no one seemed to be there, but being after Labor Day this wasn't a big surprise. I noticed some negative reviews due to refunds, we managed there clearly stated policy by just purchasing a few nights then adding as we decided to stay longer, as no refunds is on the board at the office. While the sites that may be reserved were okay, there are plenty of nicer sites if you can come in early in the week or during the off season pretty much anytime will allow a decent site choice. You can easily switch sites first thing in the morning, if one opens up you like better and take care of it later in the day. There are no paved sites and dirt will be an issue.
This place is kept clean! We had vault toilets nearby and used them on occasion since they were closer, the regular restrooms were clean and as every other thing in this park, very well cared for. Showers were 5 minutes, though it took nearly 30 seconds for warm water, the temp was controllable. There are garbage cans every several sites so getting rid of trash is easy, and there is a recycling area for other items near the office, which is nice to get rid of stuff that doesn't need to enter a landfill.
There are several trails in which to walk, or in my case tire out the dogs, which were also well maintained and wide enough to easily walk my two Rotts. Wish we could have taken the dogs to the beach there but it was clearly stated to be a $25 fine.
Verizon normally worked but would loose 3/4 G at times. Satellite TV could be tough due to trees, but since I don't know how they work there could be possibilities. We were able to watch the 4 big networks of ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox with no issues, along with some PBS channels.
All in all this park will be on our annual hit list as it has turned into an instant favorite for the wife and I.
