  • This state park is on the shores of sandy-bottomed Burt Lake in northern lower Michigan. It's quite large, with more than 300 camp sites. It's well laid out, with a mix of trailers, motor homes and tents. The facilities are quite adequate. Just outside the park is Indian River, offering canoeing kayaking and tubing. Petoskey is about 30 minutes away.
  • Lots of sites, probably too many. The beach is great but the sites could be much larger. Burt Lake is beautiful.
  • We had a great campsite near the water. The beach was clean and the water was great for swimming. The water was shallow forever.
  • Beautiful, clean & cared for campgrounds. Look forward to my next visit.
  • We go here every year and are always excited to go. The park is usually very well taken care of and boating on the lakes is excellent. You can take Burt lake through the rivers all the way to Lake Huron
