  • This is the second time we have camped here. First time was in the lower section, this time upper. Such a clean park, friendly campers, and good sites. Several views of the bridge from the campground ...  more »

  • My wife and I did not overnight nor did we camp here at The Straits State Park, in Saint Ignace. We drove through the park and viewed the Mackinac Bridge. The park was very well maintained and many people were enjoying the facilities. The views of the bridge were very nice. I guess that our Alaska license plates enabled us to get a complementary, albeit very brief, visit to the park.
  • Love this place! We had a campsite with a view of the Mackinac bridge. They had nice facilities with showers and bathrooms. It's only about a mile from St. Ignace where they have a ferry to the Mackinac island. They have firewood on site. Campsites are a nice size. Only complaint, is there isn't much of a sandy beach on this coastline. It's close to the Mystery Spot and Castle Rock and other nice places. It isn't far if you want to travel to Mackinac city, Soo Ste Marie, and, Tequamenon falls
  • I have mixed feelings about this park. I've had great experiences and some not so great. My family and I have been coming here for years (I believe maybe four or five years). Campsites are not private, but some have great views and the cramped quarters are worth it. Fire rings are well maintained as well as the bathrooms and shower facilities. Staff are okay, some are very friendly and others are not (which is the case for any business). Dogs are allowed, alcohol is allowed, and quiet time usually starts around 11pm. Prices are fair, although calling to make reservations is a better bet than using online. The website doesn't always work properly. Do your research, better safe than sorry.
  • Loved it! Nice big grassy sites. Sites right on the beach are amazing. We stopped on a Sunday night around 9:00 & made a reservation on the yellow phone with no issues. Will definitely return in the future! (Pictures are of site 82A)
  • Nice little state park near the Mackinac bridge. Good views of the bridge. Right in the town of St. Ignace.
