  • Such a cool campground! Loved being by the crystal clear water and close to downtown. Excited to return!
  • On beautiful lake charlevoix. Between the charming little towns of boyne city and Horton bay. Very nice area.
  • My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of July/beginning of August. We loved the park, one of the best we've been to in a long time. It was a short walk to the beach, which was very nice. We enjoyed sitting on the beach and swam each day we were there. The weather was perfect for our stay. The park was really clean, there were workers painting water faucets and others cleaning the showers every day. They also have a camp store witch was fairly well stocked with milk, eggs, etc. My wife and I plan on going back next summer. We came from Southern Indiana to stay here.
  • Good place to camp. Close to the lake and beach. A few minutes drive to town.
  • I've been there so many times! it's definitely my favorite. There's a little store that sells food, drinks, and memorabilia.
