Sleepy Hollow State Park, Laingsburg

#64 of 98 in Nature in Michigan
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.

  • Very nice state park. Workers are really friendly and helpful. Campgrounds and restrooms were well maintained...a few more features than some other parks I've camped at. Basketball court, and nice sized playground area for kids. Good bike trails. I lived in Lansing for 10 years and didn't even know this park was that close by...I would've been there probably every weekend... It's not a bad drive from Detroit I'll be back often. It was cloudy the day I was there so not much traffic, but the beach area and general park area are very nice.
  • Campsites were nice sized, fairly private and mostly shady(which is great for rent campers). Most importantly, the staff was amazing. Very friendly and helpful. My daughter lost her prized possession, her American doll, and the whole staff was beyond helpful. They even face us paper to make a sign and the photo copied it so we could post them around campground!
  • Sleepy Hollow is a small, but relaxing state park. It is one of the few located in mid Michigan. The campground is in wooded area where the sites are separated from each other with a good amount of brush/trees. Facilities at the campground are in good working order (showers/toilets). The lake is a short hike or drive away. Most people use the lake for fishing or kayaking, but there is a nice beach area as well for spending a portion of the day. It is not the fanciest state park, but it is convenient if you are not close to the Michigan coast.
  • Very quiet and nice site. Loved the 4 days there! The park DESPARATELY needs pavement markings. Some jerk heading north as I was leaving the park with my camper intentionally ran me off the road shouting and waving out his window... "Its a ONE WAY!" But it wasn't. For the cost of a little paint I could have protected my belongs as everything shifted in both the camper and the truck when I went off the shoulder. Please put pavement markings down!
  • Very nice campground. Been here twice this year and had a great time both trips. The only real negative, is how far away the power poles are from the sites. You often need 65' or more of extension cord to reach the power.
