  • This State Park is a little out of the way but worth the drive if you enjoy a quieter setting. Most of the campsites are more for the smaller type trailers especially along the lake where we were. It ...  more »
  • If you're looking for a quiet little campground in a state park that's one of the least-visited in Michigan, this is it. It's located on picturesque Black Lake, and the only reason I don't give it fiv...  more »

  • Great place to enjoy a day in the water. Could use some more parking for boat trailers maybe side parking for single cars. Fishing was soso memorial day. Two Pike and one rock bass.
  • No level ground, to small of camp sites, you practically sit on top of each other, only 1 of 4 toilets works in ladies room, no beach area all rocks, not happy here at all.
  • Fantastic park! The staff is so very friendly and helpful! The grounds are magnificent.
  • It's ok depending on which campsite. Kind of tight but very nice along the lake. This is one of the first state parks in Michigan, and not a lot has been done to it since it seems. Campground is completely unpaved which is fine if it doesn't rain. Park rangers are nice and ubiquitous to the point that squatters will have to pay if they're here more than a couple hours. The trash services consist of 1970's era wire baskets that tend to disappear from time to time, which ain't terribly cool if you've have only one per ~25 campsites. Except for beach areas, water is shallow for a long way out with a pebble bottom. Day use area is mowed and had a sand volleyball court and that's about it.
  • The park offers nice campsites for small travel trailers. However, for tenters, the facilities for bathrooms and showers are old and icky looking. If you can get past that? It's PERFECT. We were right off the water, our own little lake spot. Nice, big fire pits a toddler can't fall into unintentionally. We enjoyed it!!!
