Hopefully the former owners have left and found a new life for themselves! We camped here in 2008 and were very disappointed with management! We left before our time was up...but after reading other reviews, maybe they have left and things have changed for the better!
As a family man with kids of all ages we love to come up here having been a visitor for close to 10 years and a permanent for the last 2 years. It is a safe environment for kids and a great place to relax and unwind.
Cant say enough about new management they are doing a great job. I wish we could get away more, every time we do come, their is something new or an event to participate in.
Great: Location, Amenities, Lake (boat launch and gas dock), Store (especially the Breakfast Pizza you got to try it!), and my 8 year old loves finding turtles and fishing & the 4 year old she loves the beach and water.
We have been camping for 4 years here and absolutely fell in love with this place. Great Pizza, beautiful and clean lake, nice beach for children. Very well kept! Can not wait for the season to start!!!
First, a disclaimer. My wife and I have been seasonal campers at Green Acres for over 6 years now. And we've come to be good friends with the couple that run the place.
Green Acres is a small campground in south central Michigan, very well maintained, and very "family-friendly". If you're looking to stay up all night and raise hell, this isn't a place you'll like.
The other two negative reviews seem to object to the owner's exerting control. On the one hand, I can see where some people might not like having to follow the rules. But as a resident there, I'm glad that the rules are enforced.
For example, one of the negative reviews talks about "Watch where you walk" and "watch what music you play". I know where a couple of these comments stem from.
The "Watch where you walk" … if you're a camper, you know that campground etiquette dictates that you don't walk through other people's sites - you walk in public areas. I suspect the reviewer was reminded of that tradition, and didn't like being told where they could walk.
The "Watch what you play" stems from a party held at Green Acres. The rule is "quiet hour" starts at 11:00 PM. The ones who organized the party knew that going in. At about 11:30 PM, the owner shut the party down. The party-goers weren't too happy with the decision. But as I was trying to get my grandchildren to sleep about that time, I sure had no problem with it.
Bottom line, like most things in life, there are 2 sides to every story. If your main reason to camp is to "party", please don't come here. This is not a place you'll enjoy. But if you want to camp, swim, fish, and generally enjoy the outdoors with your family, children and grandchildren, in a quiet, safe, well-maintained setting, you won't go wrong visiting Green Acres.
Watch where you walk....watch what you say....watch what music you play. I went this campgorund to visit a friend for a birthday party....not a place to have a gathering. The management who rides around on his golf cart needs to find a new job...maybe one that he enjoys.
