We enjoy timber ridge. Weekends are often themed and have something for the kids all weekend. It's right on the vasa trail so kids can also bike all day. Then at night the dodgeball starts. Usually a laugh fest.

“Best Cross Country Skiing in Michigan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

Timber Ridge has a commercial operation that rents virtually brand new skis boots and poles for only $15 per half day. Trails from the center lead directly to the larger and well known VASA trail system. Besides renting skis the other big advantage to starting at the Timber Ridge trailhead compared to the VASA trailhead is elevation. You are already near the high elevation point so the skiing from here is easier. The entire VASA trail system is huge, well supplied with fresh snow due to the location and groomed for both skate skiing and skiiing in the well maintained tracks. Rentals for both types of skis are available at Timber Ridge along with the current state of the art snowshoes for the dedicated snowshoe trails(please stay off the ski trails) Trails are all well marked so you know in advance how big each loop is and how far along you are. The wooded setting holds the snow longer into spring than other nearby trails. When you're all done you can get warm refreshments back at Timber Ridge in the lodge.

“Sanitation Unacceptable”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

We stayed for almost a week. At NO time were all of the toilets functional in the restrooms (frequently none of the toilets worked) and most of the time there was toilet water running across the floors. They have friendly staff and lots of activities, so why the total lack of attention to this basic camper need? It's a deal breaker. I will never return.
