"Waldenwoods is a beautiful clean family fun place. You can relax or get plenty of exercise camping or canoeing or paddle boating or swimming or hit the courts. You can stay at your own camper or rent a hotel room. The staff and members are always nice. The restaurant is very nice too."    ~Lisa
 
"This private resort is the perfect getaway in Michigan! Located in Howell, MI...and has so many fun activities on Lake Walden! Outdoor swimming pool, indoor sauna and jacuzzi, sandy beach, boating, kayaking, paddle boards, a game room/activity center...the list goes on and on! Gorgeous views! Got home last night and I was bummed to leave!"    ~Whitney
 
"Been a member for over a year now and we absolutely love Waldenwoods!"    ~Cary
 
"The grounds are absolutely beautiful! Everything is so well kept. The new renovations to the bath house and pool bathrooms are absolutely gorgeous. This place is not what you would expect when you think 'campground'. The staff is all amazing, from the store workers, to the office, to the rangers. Would rate at six stars if I could!"      ~Chris
