Sleepy Hollow State Park, Laingsburg

(4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Although not one of my favorite state parks, this is a really nice SP for the middle of the lower peninsula. Lots of trails. Because I was there early on a cold March morning, I didn't see anyone else...  more »

  • 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.
  • Very private sites. Good bike trails and disk golf. Kayak rental and lake are a bonus.
  • 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.
  • Excellent park. Miles of trails, nice lake, great camping
