Here is our Youtube Video if you would rather listen to our review instead of read.
We enjoy going to Hidden Ridge RV Resort in Shelbyville, Michigan. Here our some pictures, and our review. Hidden Ridge is conveniently located North of Kalamazoo and South of Grand Rapids just off US 131. There are a variety of pull in, back in, pull thru, and cottage sites for you to rent. The big rigs are generally in the pull in section at the front of the park. However, there are some pull thrus in the back of the park that some of the big rigs like to spend the night Every site that we’ve seen has full hookup with 50/30/20amp service, water, and cable tv. All sites have a concrete pad, picnic table, and elevated fire pit. Wifi is available and better than most rv parks but still has limited bandwidth and mobile hotspots tend to work better.
If you are bored at Hidden Ridge you must not have stepped outside your RV. As you enter the gated RV park, look up the hill to the right to find the spacious fenced in dog park. There are waste bags everywhere.
The main “entertainment” complex is in the middle of the resort. The pool area has a hottub for older teens and adults a huge heated pool and splash pad. The pool area has locker rooms with toilets and showers and attached laundry facility.
Next to the pool are pickle ball and basketball courts. The surface is a sportcourt and fun to play on. Across from the pool is the campground store where you can purchase prepared food, snacks, ice cream, drinks, slushies, rv accessories, fishing live bait, and rent paddles, and sports equipment. Attached to the store is an arcade with 7-10 games including air hockey. Next to the arcade is the bounce pillow.
Below the courts is the campground pavilion, gaga ball pit, and playground. Excited yet?
The clubhouse is for adults and includes a library, bar, ping pong, foosball, pool tables, card tables, and exercise facility. Behind the clubhouse are hiking trails. Also at the clubhouse is the sand volleyball court and the beach with fishing dock, community fire pit, and canoes, kayaks, and paddle boat. There are two ponds that allow for catch and release fishing. There are a lot of sunfish that like red worms. We have also caught bass.
Hidden Ridge is a great camping location for all that West Michigan has to offer including Van Andel Arena, Gilmore Car Museum, two zoos, Kalamazoo Air Zoo, Lake Michigan beaches and state parks, Golfing, wineries, distilleries, and breweries and Gun Lake Casino is about five minutes away. With all this resort has to offer and its location you will not be disappointed with your stay.
