We stayed at Honcho Rest for 3 months this summer and really enjoyed it. It's one of the best run, well kept campgrounds we've been to. The owners are super nice brothers that "take care of business" and work hard to keep the campground well maintained. The campground is located on Bass Lake (a small fishing lake), 1 mile from downtown Elk Rapids (a cute little resort town on the water), and is an RV campground (no tents). The campground has a row boat and canoe free for campers to use. There is a great playground for young kids, as well as a basketball court and horse shoes for older kids or adults. The bathrooms (8 individual) are clean and well maintained. The sites along the waterfront of Bass Lake are occupied by long time seasonal campers (some here over 20 years) who have beautiful flowers and small, manicured yards. All of the sites have a concrete parking pad for your RV, with a picnic table and fire pit. They have free WIFI and cable. You can sit by Bass Lake in your chairs or on one of the 2 piers and watch beautiful sunsets. Before we arrived, we read on Tripadvisor about a guy who yells at people to slow down and that the sites were too close to one another. Our campsite was right behind the man's RV and we didn't hear him yell even one time. We got to know him and he's a nice guy (with a cute little white dog that he walks several times a day). We have a class A, 38' MH and thought our site was huge. The location of the campground is great, being close to Traverse City and Charlevoix, as well as driving trips in every direction. We would definitely stay at Honcho Rest again!!! Great campground!!
