  • Our favorite State campground! Excellent sites, beautiful beach, sandy bottom lake, great play facilities, nice bathrooms, friendly staff. Well-placed dump stations with hoses provided. Close to shopping and several golf courses. The only State park that isn't too flexible about checking in before 3 p.m. though.
  • This was a great place to camp while waiting to drop a load on Monday! Love the lake and very peaceful! Very reasonable price too not like others charge you like a hotel.
  • Best place to stay on way to Mackinac Island. Beautiful grounds. Lake view. Great Showers etc. Wonderful, friendly staff. Great rates.
  • Beautiful spot. Really wish they offered day passes though instead of only annuals. The beach store could also have more options.
  • Good lake to go swimming. Walleye, Bass, Perch fishing is good too. Busy during the summer.
