The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan recently celebrated the grand opening of the Soaring Eagle Hideaway RV Park.
The campground is situated on a 25-acre lake that’s fully stocked for fishing.
Visitors also can enjoy a clubhouse, walking trails, laundry facilities, and a playground.
The Horizon Construction Group, based out of Madison, Wisconsin, was hired as the general contractor for the project in conjunction with the construction of the Soaring Eagle Waterpark and Hotel.
Access to the Soaring Eagle Waterpark and Hotels pool, club house, steam room, hot tub, sauna, fitness center, Nbakade Restaurant, and Cyber Quest arcade is also available (indoor waterpark admission not included).

Other amenities include a walking trail, laundry facilities, pet area, beach, horseshoes, volleyball, park fire pit, pavilion with picnic area, activity, library, game room, sitting room with fireplace, and deck overlooking lake.

As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate more lovingly, our own.
