Description

Timber Ridge Resort is the sole privately-owned campground in Traverse City, Michigan. Located in Northwest Michigan, it is near Lake Michigan and sits at the base of East and West Grand Traverse bays and is only 10 miles from downtown Traverse City at highways 31 and 27. It is easy to reserve you campsite or cabin online now and know you will have a great place for your summer vacation.

To make your vacation special we have a heated swimming pool, miles of trails to hike, an 18-hole mini golf course, lighted volleyball courts and numerous outdoor camping games to play. Our lodge is always open for TV viewing, cards and other indoor games, as well as just sitting before a cozy fire. If you choose, take a bike ride, hike, rent one of our bikes or participate in one of our planned activities while you are here.

When you feel the urge to get out and sightsee, one of the first places to go is Michigan Legacy Art Park, in Thompsonville, about a 24-mile drive from Timber Ridge Resort. This special park features 35 larger-than-life works of art by Michigan artists depicting some of the history of our state. In Traverse City, the grownups will enjoy touring and a tasting at Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery.

Rented a cabin.....cabin cute but much smaller than I expected. Spiders in the cabin so not sure if they spray like they should for insects. Also, the cabin could have been cleaner. Definately not worth the $140 a night that we paid. Wish we would have just gotten a hotel for that price. Close to Traverse City so that was nice. Campground had nice facilities like pool, ice cream shop, camp store. Put Put golf course looked old and not taken care of at all.

We have stayed at Timber Ridge many times previously, but not in several years. The facility was clean, and staff were pleasant and helpful. The pool was not heated (as is advertised) and they were having problems which prevented the use of the pool on two of the days that we were there (hopefully this problem has been resolved). The mini golf course had not been maintained well and needed some work, and we had to ask for a score card and pencil, but we had fun playing anyways. Overall it was a good camping trip.

We've stayed at Timber Ridge on 2 different camping excursions and were very pleased with all they had to offer. When we arrived the first time, we were worried because of where it was located...we thought we would be disappointed. Not the case, we found the campground & campsites large enough to spread out. We enjoyed riding our bikes around and the pool was decent. The most fun was watching the enclosed dodge ball arena games. We have 2 boys and the loved it! When the dodge ball bell rang...kids from everywhere went running! Other activities we did included an ice cream social, outdoor family movie on a large screen, bike obstacle course, putt-putt (needs some renovation) and we enjoyed the peaceful setting and watching the black tree squirrels (don't have those in Ohio). The lodge had a small store and a couple of game machines but we liked how they focused on OUTDOOR activities instead of huge game rooms. The staff was nice and accommodating to our requests. It was only a 15 minute drive into town. They have lots of trails that you could walk or bike...we never did. We would definitely go back and would recommend this campground to other RVers. Good times in Michigan!

Love the rental cottages

This facility is awesome! You can stay for days on end and the kids will never run out of things to do! There is a playground, pool, volleyball, basketball and best of all...a dodgeball court! They show movies at night, they have an arcade, ice cream and bike rentals. They also have a bike course with jumps and other fun obstacles. My kids loved this place and didn't want to leave. If you want to hit the beach, there is a public beach on the bay just a short drive from the campground. We rented a cottage and had 2 adults and 3 kids sleep comfortably. It was really nice to have our own bathroom and kitchen! My only complaint is that the cottage is pricey, but they are always booked so I guess people don't mind paying it!
