Sleepy Hollow State Park is a 2678acre state park located off US-127 in Ovid Township and Victor Township, near St. Johns and Laingsburg, Michigan. Located at 7835 East Price Road, the park contains many miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails as well as a medium-sized man-made lake known as Lake Ovid. A dam located in the northwest corner of the lake flooded the area which created the relatively shallow body of water. Lake Ovid, covering 410acre, was developed by damming the Little Maple River. Several islands of varying size provide sanctuary for a variety of marine bird species including Canada geese, swans, and blue herons.

  • We arrived right at sunset and only stayed one night. The campground was quiet but appeared to have just been overrun by lots of weekend visitors. There was a lot of garbage by the dumpsters. The thre...  read more »
  • Sleepy Hollow State Park is a beautiful park to visit. Boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, bird watching, hunting, you name it. If you can do it in a state park, this is the park to see. It comes aliv...  read more »
  • I only live a few miles from here and this summer was the first time I visited the park. Took my grandkids there a few times and they loved it and so did I. Nice place to have fun and also camp 
  • Sleepy hollow is my favourite disc golf course in the Lansing area. It was created by damning a river and now is a very nice lake. The lake is no wake and great for fishing and swimming. The campground is very nice, the lots are smaller than other parks, but very private. There is a great disc golf course and many beautiful walking trails.
  • I felt like this was a run down campsite that was there for people from Lansing that just can't afford to go anywhere else. (Don't judge! I'm from Lansing) I went here for a quick trip for 2 days with just my sister, my 1 year old daughter and myself. For starters, this is the first campsite I have ever been to that someone has stolen from me. We came back from the beach to find a quanity of our food was stolen. 😡 Next, quiet time isn't until 11pm, which doesn't work when you have a 1 year old and it's midnight and you neighbors are playing guitars singing. We took the path to the beach, it didn't say beach 3 miles ahead (maybe dramatic) but it literally took 25 minutes to walk to the beach!!! Give some warning! The beach was small. Very Very small. There was some summer camp there, taking up half of it for their games. Loud teenagers running everywhere. I also thought it was odd that swimming and the fishing dock where literally 10 feet apart. GOT SWIMMERS ITCH!! Awesome! Thanks! And lastly, the bugs where SO bad! We camp often, and I mean like once to twice a month. I have NEVER been some where, where the bugs were this bad. Even with the fire going, and off, we were getting swarmed unbelievablely. Overall a horrible experience. Will never go back again.
  • Great for kayakers! Easy in/out at the boat ramp area. Lots of wildlife when you kayak late in the afternoon, too.
  • There are a lot of woods, beach and water for a great adventure. The campsites are small though, they really pack us in. Beach is very far from campsites so unless you're ready for a walk, or you ride bikes like us, you will need to drive to the beach. Pretty busy place.
  • Visited this state park with a group of friends this past weekend. Had a great time! The camp sites do seem a bit small... We were fortunate enough to have a site that seemed bigger than the others. The beach was nice although the swimming area in the lake was not very large. The park itself is beautiful and has a lot to do! I had read reviews about the park security being ridiculous which made me nervous with a group of young adults visiting. We honestly didn't see security very much at all and were able to play music quietly and talk at reasonable volumes throughout the day and at night without any problems. Would love to return!
