We had a great Holiday weekend in Frankenmuth this year at the Jellystone park located right out-of-town. I wasn’t looking forward to going to this park, but it was the only place we could get reservations at, and I called back in January. I was pleasantly surprised at everything. The park, the town, the weather, and our neighbors. Yes, the neighbors that live behind us ending up being next to us at the campground. Everyone was friendly, the park was clean and had a good setup for kids – and bonus: Indoor Heated Pool! (Because you never know the Michigan weather)
They had a large playground for the kids, newer cabins, activities during the day, ice cream cart that went around selling ice cream bars, putt-putt (but the greens were horrible, filled with pine needles) laundry facilities, and mostly blacktop roads.
The only downfall of the park was the extremely small lots. Our awning was literally hitting the camper next to us and our water hookup was at the base of our neighbors camper stairs. You would think when laying out these things, they would have took this into consideration. We had to bring our own fire pit due to a city ordinance, but that’s not the parks fault. They do have community fire pits available.

Frankenmuth was quite a surprise. There’s a ton of little shops, all with unique things to pick from. The doggie Olympics was very busy. There was a pet parade, dock dogs (which is my son’s fav) and something that looked like an obstacle course for the dogs. There were dogs everywhere, so if you don’t like them, like my hubby, you should stay away on this weekend. He actually did quite well walking around there with all the dogs.
We stopped at Tiffany’s in town for lunch and I highly suggest the perogies. They were awesome, and had to fight my son off the last one. If you don’t eat quick around the boy, you will starve I had the Ceaser salad and it was good. My daughter got butter noodles and they were all homemade, and delic!
There also was a hot air balloon festival and topped it off with fireworks and a balloon glow on Sunday night. The balloon glow was amazing. They set up about 15 hot air balloons on a field, all tethered to the ground. Then they would light up the balloons with their fire heaters, and take turns to make them ‘twinkle’. So glad I made the fam pack up and hike up to town to see this. (I’m a sucker for fireworks)
The weekend was a great time and we had fun. Have you ever stayed here before and what do you love about Frankenmuth?
