“It was a very relaxing and pleasant experience..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2010

I went to Door County with 3 other people this past weekend (the weekend before Memorial Day weekend). We stayed at one of the sleeping cabins. The cabin was located towards the entrance of the place and I was worried before coming to Tranquil Timbers that the location of the sleeping cabin would be bad, that it would be really busy and loud.. But overall, my experience was very positive.. The place itself was very quiet and clean.. It wasn't very busy that weekend so that fact probably did not hurt our experience either. The cabin was very well kept. It was kind of small but very cozy.. They had a fire ring and a picnic table so that was very convenient.. We were surrounded by RV's but that didn't really bother us since the people left us alone... We didn't have a bathroom in the cabin but the communal bathroom was just a few steps away and it was neat and clean. I loved the hot showers!! And they always refilled the toilet paper :) I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to friends and family.

We stayed at the deluxe cabin rental for 2 nights and loved it...There is one bedroom on the lower level and another with two beds on the upper level. The cabin itself was very well maintained and clean. The stairs leading to the upper level are steep so one has to be careful. The campground was not crowded and we had a very relaxing stay. My two year old loved the open space outside. The camp store was not open during our visit so we had to drive around to get fuel to start our fire but there's a Kmart not too far off from this campground. We would definitely stay there again....

We stayed at Tranquil Timbers for a weekend along with four other families.

There are security gates at the entrance and exit so it is very safe for kids. Most of the campsites are nicely shaded. Our site was quite large and we did not feel like any other campers were on top of us.

The facilities are kept up quite well. There are multiple shower facilities with flush toilets. Closer to our campsite they had placed a couple of port-a-potties which were convenient for that middle of the night relief.

They have a nice swimming pool. It was maintained well, but it would have been great had they had some lounge chairs in the area. They just had a bunch of wooden benches (permanently affixed) around the pool.

The playground area was good. Putt-putt golf, a game room, and shelter area was nice, but what you expect for a campground.

The staff was great onsite. Very friendly.

Negatives: Reservations and pre-stay communications. Before camping season, it appears that someone checks messages once every week or so. So we had slow response to our reservations query. There were some other communication concerns (someone thought we were put in a seasonal site, yet we weren't) which took some effort to get resolved.

The only other negative I can state is that the toilets were stuffed up one night. They had to get septic folks in to fix the next morning. This appears to be a recurring problem, but I cannot say that it was anything more than an inconvenience for an evening.

Final thoughts: This was a nice quiet campground that really makes you feel like your camping. The other campers were great. There were no golf carts running rampant like we've seen at other private campgrounds. The seasonal campsites are placed throughout the campground which I liked. Everyone did a great job keeping things clean and nice.

Bonus: You can walk to Potawatomi State Park from the campground. There are some shielded views of Sturgeon Bay from the campground. Heavily wooded but you can see the water through the trees.

NIce, quiet, campground with lots of trees, outside a residential area in Sturgeon Bay. We stayed in a yurt with our two sons (ages 5 and 7), and enjoyed our 2 day stay there. The showers and bathrooms were clean and seemed to be centrally located within the campground. The only downside (and minor at that) was that the swimming pool could have used just a little more tending to, but otherwise, it was o.k. Friendly staff, and family oriented. We would definitely stay here again!
