“Sand dunes”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This is such a great location especially if your planing on going to the dunes. Has a heated pool. Dogs are welcome. And has tons of kid activity. Right next door to the shopping plaza and Craig's cruzers. The price is also great.

My family and I stayed here for a family reunion. The staff was fairly helpful and pleasant to deal with.

The campground is a little on the dirty side and the weekend we stayed they were full. Unfortunately we felt like we were all packed into the park like sardines. The sites were decent however if you have a larger travel trailer or fifth-wheel, this may not be the place. The roads are a little small and some larger trees make it a little challenging on some sites to back in to. A positive to the amount of trees is the shade they provide where as a couple of other campgrounds nearby are open and offer no relief from the hot / muggy summer Michigan days. The campfire vessels provided at each site are very small, in fact, the smallest we have found at any other campgrounds.

I have to agree with another reviewer that the restrooms were kept very clean for one, how dirty the campground is in general, and two, the amount of sand dune visitors there are in the park.

The campground is very close to local attractions which are in walking and / or biking distance.

Overall, there was no real draw to come back to this Jellystone and if we are to return to this area, we would stay at a local resort or chose to try another campground nearby.

Room Tip: If you can afford to upgrade to a full hook-up, I would suggest it. During peak "dumping"...

The campsites are big and restrooms are very clean considering all the sand around from the dunes. The staff is very friendly everyone waves when going by. Tons of kid activities to do. The pool is also super clean. Very close to attractions!

This Yogi is one of the best we have stayed at. Always something to do on the campsite or in the area. Love that we can walk to Craig's Cruizers and other shops in area. Not a far drive to local attractions like the Lighthouse, the Dunes, and the MacWoods Dune rides (a must do activity). 2nd time we stayed at this Yogi and we will be sure to go back. Did find out the person who owns Craig's also owns Yogi. Wish he would do some sort of package deal or wrist band for those staying at the resort. Love, love the showers! Like having privacy vs. a shower with a curtain and always clean. Would just ask that they paint over the red shower doors to remove words people scratched in the back. Love the curfew. For such a busy campground, all is quiet and relaxing in the late evening which I love so we can sleep peacefully and wake up the next day to enjoy the fun again. I also love the idea that those who arrive back late after curfew cannot drive in the park. I always hated when I was trying to fall asleep hearing cars drive around or having lights shine into my tent as we try to fall asleep. Suggestions to help improve this campground would be to offer night time cartoons, a night time glow stick wagon ride, another laundry facility, and another bathroom with more showers. And to those who have complained about the campground... THIS IS CAMPING! If you can't handle the dirt or sand on the site, then don't camp. When there are lots of people trying to take a shower, of course they are bound to become dirty. The workers here really do try to keep the bathrooms clean, they are always checking them. Again, one of the best Yogi's we ever stayed at. If you don't go, you are missing out on the fun!

We stayed here on a family trip to the dunes. The facility was nice and clean the amenities were clean. Perfect proximity to all the nearby activities. We would stay here again if we returned to this area.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the restrooms/showers were cleaned often and the grounds were great for kids of all ages. We didn't mind the curfew and appreciated that the area was relatively quiet after 11 pm. We still enjoyed our campfire until 1 am, but didn't find the quiet hours impeded our enjoyment at all.

We Loved the camp ground! The sites are mostly shaded and spacious, Very clean bathrooms, plenty of hot water. Huge pool, friendly staff and plenty of activities for the kids. We me made tie dyed t shirts one day, for a small fee $7 but other crafts and activities were free. You Can walk to the lake or several other attractions. Located close to a small strip mall with candy shop, souvenir shop, and a chicken wing rest. The Craig's cruisers family fun park is also next door
