I called ahead to see if Soaring Eagle RV park offered discounted rates this late in the season. I spoke to a very friendly guy who was able to offer me a very good rate. We have wanted to stay at this place since they opened, but the cost was a bit steep for our tastes. The rate I was offered this weekend was a lot easier to swallow.
When we arrived the park was quite empty. Just a few RVs and most of the occupants were gone (most likely at the casino). We expected this was going to be a quiet and peaceful weekend. How wrong we were!
Little did we know that this weekend would bring a campground full of loud and rowdy football fans. This happens to be the weekend for the Homecoming Football Game at Central Michigan University. Friday night the town filled up and so did our nice peaceful little RV park. There was yelling, screaming and partying all night long, every night! The park rules specifically state that they do not allow this type of behavior in the park. Then again, the office closes at 7 PM so there is no one around to do anything about it. So just let the party begin.
The park itself is pretty nice. It is well kept. The is a general store, a bathhouse, kids play area, clubhouse, laundry facilities and hiking trails. There is a small lake with boat rentals. They provide a free shuttle service to the Soaring Eagle Waterpark, Waabooz Run Golf Course, and Soaring Eagle Casino from the campground.
The campsites are paved and pretty much level. Each site has a fire pit, grill and picnic table. They offer 30 and some 50 amp electrical sites. There is water, sewer and WiFi. The WiFi signal is strong with no dropouts. The WiFi signal is, however, turned down pretty slow.
For lunch today we stopped into Pixie’s here in Mt. Pleasant. We have been here lots of times before. I have eaten lots of Pixies before. This is, however, the first time I have been officially inducted into the Pixie Hall Of Fame. Not a huge event for me, I just really love the Pixies.
