  • Cheboygan to Onaway via Black Lake rural roads was easy and enjoyable. We traveled to Onaway State Park from hotel on Lake Huron near our route to highway travel South. If you're a camper, then there ...  more »
  • Tried camping here but the camp sites are very small and uneven. Many are on steep inclines and have trees in the middle of the site. There was no staff to be found anywhere. The bathrooms are quite o...  more »
  • 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 »

  • This was a small quaint campground. It was well kept and a good fishing lake. With a sandy beach about the side of my thumbnail there wasn't much swimming that went on. The lake was nice but rocky with more crawfish than water. There was only really one nice walking trail and no biking trails. There was a set of bathrooms closed but a vault toilet open near our campsite. If you are thinking on going this campground I would bring a boat of some sort and a fishing pole. I did like this campground because it was quiet and secluded but that can also be a downside.
  • Loved this park. Spacious campsites nestled among old growth white pine. Some playground equipment & a small beach. Beautiful lake. Definitely worth another visit.
  • This was a fantastic park! The sites are moderately sized and pretty close together, so not a lot of privacy. The fire pits and tables are excellent. The views are phenomenal. There were lots of kids when we went and our children made new friends. The swimming beach is small but very nice with warm water. The camp hosts were excellent with lots of family friendly activities. The camp is very close to Ocqueoc Falls, perfect for a day trip. There are very good restaurants and ships near by, even though it is in a very small town. We will definitely return!
  • My home away from home. The townsfolk are not so nice, but everyone in the park is like family.
  • This is a great family friendly campground nestled on a beautiful lake that's great for fishing. Out of all the state parks I have stayed, this is one of my favorites!
