  • The beach is gorgeous! I definitely recommend going here.
  • We had a great time camping here! Amazing location right on tge point. Great bike paths directly to the beach and lighthouse. Safe place for kids. Bathrooms were clean, showers hot (too hot for me and NOT temperature adjustable). Fairly large campsites, although sizes do vary by site. Water available nearby, but not on site. Electrical was not conveniently located for my site, so be prepared with extensions cords.
  • Great park. Did not explore the campground. Loved the lighthouse and accompanying tour.
  • This is my absolute favorite state park! Between the amazing beaches, the great walking and nature trails, and the lighthouse this is the best park to visit in Michigan. The historical tours of the lighthouse are fun for the whole family. There is a cute little shop to buy gifts and memorabilia next to the lighthouse. There are so many locations for good picture taking that creates good lasting family memories!
  • I love this place. I try to visit every time I'm in town
