  • Port Crescent State Park is located at the tip of Michigan's "thumb" along three miles of sandy shoreline on Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay near Port Austin. It is home to a dark sky preserve, a modern campground with waterfront views and a camper cabin. It also offers visitors ample opportunities for fishing, canoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, birding and hunting. In addition, a wooden boardwalk parallels the shoreline offering scenic vistas of Saginaw Bay.
  • Another beautiful Michigan State Park. It’s a pretty good size, but has a smaller feel because of its proximity to M-25. A few sites along that perimeter suffer from it, but all the rest are good. Many are outstanding along the lake. Site 70 is what we like to call “The Honeymoon Suite”. It’s a site all by itself because the dunes reclaimed all the adjacent sites. Very private, very spacious, overlooking Lake Huron. Camped here during the Harvest Festival (mid October). Lots of campers with Halloween theme decorations. All kinds of activities planned including trick or treating in the campground.
  • Probably the best state park campground in the thumb area. Private camper only beach, rare sunset views over lake Huron(very few places that are not an island to see a sunset over lake Huron in Michigan). Pinnabog river near by (ends in the park) for a short canoe/kayak trip. Can find site on and off the lake. Modern bathroom facilities. Sites range in size and ground cover. Caseville and Port Austin near by.
  • Affordable, quiet, well kept campground. They have some activities for guests, convenient water access and bathrooms. The beach directly in front of the campground is only a few feet wide, but if you walk down a little ways it opens up. Close to turnip rock. Will definitely come back!
  • My first state park in our new camper. We stayed in a spot on the water. The site was gorgeous. The facilities were clean. The place was packed, but it was also a holiday weekend. I'm new to camping in an RV, but this site won me over!
