What a wonderful fourth of July. They had bike parades for the kids,face painting and and EXCELLENT two nights of fireworks! Owners are visibly available to campers, the pool is clean. There were a lot of mosquitos but not sure they can control that. Rifle river is a wonderful river to tube. We will definitly be back next year and the year after that! Great job Big Bend Staff!

Our family has been to this campground before... but this is the best its ever been. The people are wonderful, the campground is well-kept, the bathrooms are pristine. We had left some little things behind: extension cord, ketchup..the last seasonal's in the back helped us out..that's what "camping" is all about.. having fun and meeting great people....Thanks Big Bend for making our camping everything we hoped for!!

We have been going to BIG Bend for over 4 years now. Our parents and my brother and his family have been seasonals there for some time now. We absolutly LOVE IT at Big bend!! What is it we love about it????...... We love the family atmosphere, the large grassy lots with awesome views of the Rifle River. The inground heated pool is a great asset as well. Our children are now teenagers and we never hear them saying, "were bored, theres nothing to do!" because they always have activities for everyone of all ages! Overall........ Big Bend Campround is a GREAT escape!! We are looking forward to becoming seasonals there ourselves in the near future and making lots of memories for years to come!

What are you waiting for??????....... Call and make your reservations now to come and check it out for yourselves!! You wont regret it!!!!

Enjoyed a great time at Big Bend dispite the weather. They provided many activities for the kids. Neighbors got a little loud but manager tended to that once notified. Lots are big and clean. Store is well stocked with supplies and has very nice staff. Good job, hope to get a chance to return again this season. Would recommend for future campers.

I am a seasonal

Date:

November 3, 2010

I have been camping at Big Bend Campground for 10 years and have been a seasonal for most of those years. And I have to agree with some of the comments regarding the golf carts and the drinking on them. There is a problem with a few of the seasonals and there drinking. But that is only a very few that have caused problems and those have have been removed or warned. Dont hold the action of a few against the rest of the seasonals or the campground. As far as I'm concerned Big Bend is one of the best campgrounds around. The owners do everything they can to make the campers stay the very best they can. As far as the language and drinking is concerned the majority of these problems are from the weekend campers not the seasonals, and the management as well as the seasonals try to police that problem.

Give them a break there working hard to make this a great family campground not just a good one!!!

I had to post a comment about the horrible time we had..... It would have been great if I would be into the park wide party dome,,,, but with 3 kids all under 9, I was disappointed to say the least. I made the bad choice of coming here because it states its a family campground. That is farrrrrrrrrr from what I seen. There should be some type of guidelines before you can call your self a "family" campground.

If your into a huge party attmosphere and underage drinking.... then this is the place for you. Carts are everywhere and occupents driving them have been drinking as well as have a drink in their hand. This place is a huge ZOO. The language is terrible and very hard to avoid. The wagon ride has been turned into a drinking contest. This is not the same campground that I had visited in the past.

well we stayed there this summer and was shock at all the minors drinking in the park. We had 3 small children with us and left after the second night. Manager has a hugs attitude problem. we tried to complain about campers smoking pot near us and was told if we didnt like it to leave. We did notic the manager was at the site in question several time we thought because of others complaining as well. This is NOT the place for your kids. Lotta golf carts driving around at all times of the night as well. These are their permants and have "special" privilegdes..... save your money and headace

Had a wonderful time camping over the 4th of July at Big Bend Campground. They had a ton of activities for all ages, two nights of fireworks, with a dj on the beach. Took a river trip and had a great time. When we got to our drop off point our gear was nicely stacked with pleasant workers offering a helping hand getting our gear to us and us into the water. Managers were visable and working hard. Park was full, never heard any loud music or fireworks going off during the nights except their planned shows. A must for Michiganders for next year if you can get in! Great Job!

I totally enjoyed the camping and all the services at Big Bend Family Campground over Father's Day Weekend. The grounds are well kept, the comfort station is clean, the pool is well maintained. We also enjoyed the craft time they offer for the young kids and the Pig Roast that was hosted by the park with a potluck from all the seasonal campers. What a great meal was served to all! The river is a great tubing/canoeing time, the scenery is beautiful. I strongly recomend this campground for families or couples of all ages! Great job Managers & Staff

My family has enjoyed camping at this campground for quite some time. We were shocked to return this year to a totally different park. It was more like a zoo than a park!! Absolutly no signs of camp security and they sure needed it!! New management is on a power trip ! Campers driving around the park ontop of vehicles screaming and drinking following a hay wagon filled with adults singing a song with every other word beginning with "F". And the Camp Manager was both encourging this as well as particpating. This is NOT a campground you would want to take small children to!!! I have never seen such riduclous behavior in my life. We got no sleep the whole weekend!!! We have decided to take our business as well as our children elsewhere were we can be assured that our kids will be safe and not subjected to such behavior. BIG BEND CLEAN UP YOUR ACT !!!

We had such a wonderful time there! The park is beautiful and very well maintained. Staff is super and extremely helpful. My family went on a canoe trip and had a blast. The staff there were so FRIENDLY and helpful. We rebooked for 2009 and have 3 more families that will be joining us. The park is so clean and the bathroom were so clean and well maintained. We will continue to go and hope others will enjoy their stay as much as we did. Thumbs up to the staff at BIG BEND !!!
