  • I live in Marine City. It was posted this is not a nature getaway. If you never walked much further then, where you parked your camper. Maybe that would make you think that to be true. Although the pa...  more »
  • Sites are very closely packed and there are very few trees. Not much space or privacy between you and your neighbor. It's basically like camping on a front lawn in the suburbs. There's a nice little p...  more »

  • As far as State parks go I feel it is lacking. Maybe it's just cause Its to close to home for me but I feel it's a little boring and limited. I've camped in the "wagon wheel" many times as a teen and was always a good time but that was about as good as it ever got for me here. The hiking trails leave very little to the imagination and the landscaping seems to go on and on with very little noticeable change in scenery. Again my opinion is biased and should probably be over looked this time.
  • The walk to the water was breath taking plain beautiful. Very clean park.
  • Nice setup. Bad thing is it seems we were the only family here. Definitely a "older" crowd
  • Wonderful campsites some with water view. Archery and trap range. A must if you love the outdoors.
  • This is a pretty small State Park but has a Trap Range, an Archery Range, a prairie meadow to walk through with marked paths, a small swimming area on St Clair River, and a lot of trails to explore in the woods.
