  • Port Crescent was a lumber town in the 1860's it sported a lumber mill, grist mill and brewery. There was a dam on the river near the shore. You can still see some of the ruins along the river. Today ...  more »
  • Great for hikes, days out on the beach, and bird of prey sightings. The trails and facilities are well maintained, so are the roads. I highly recommend bringing bug repellent if visiting during the warm months. 5 stars for a great hike!
  • Really beautiful spot if you can manage to reserve a site on the lakeshore. Good to keep in mind though that if you're close to the lake, the winds can get pretty high which can complicate fire-making and tent retention. The water was great, and noticeably warmer than expected for this time of year.
  • Host family is great. They always have something going on for adults and kids on the weekend. Shaded campground, clean bathrooms, white sandy beaches, kids playground, volleyball court. Ranger patrolled state park. Felt safe and everyone is so super friendly. I will be back.
  • This park is beautiful, albeit a little small. It attracts a flock of locals who are very particular as to what campsites they want. So if you want a certain campsite, be sure to register and reserve on line and research what you are looking for. It's a small park, but it's right on Lake Huron. We viewed the beautiful beach right out the back of our Airstream and heard the water melodically put us to sleep at night with our back window open. Quaint, but during peak season this park gets full quickly. If it's full, I highly recommend Sleeper State Park up the road.
  • Relaxing and peaceful place to visit. I highly recommend it!
