Great Campground

Camping here is enjoyable. The campgrounds alone offer clean, heated restrooms, paved roads throughout, access to a variety of amenities, and is affordable.

There are numerous trails well marked with maps/signed to guide you. It would be extremely difficult to get lost here.

The Potawatomi Inn has an AYCE buffet for $15 per person…we took food home with us because the Inn had some many options for dinner.

The cost for the one night campover and park access was $24. That’s a steal when compared with other, more popular places.

Yes, it was winter and snowing, but we love four season camping!

The staff at Pokagon SP is wonderful and extremely friendly.

Can’t do wrong camping here! Beautiful park!

Very large , trees and woods, bring your bikes.

We visited for just one night on a fall weekday. Campground was not crowded. Our site #315 was spacious with a nice foliage buffer around it. Many nice sites, but also many small, not private at all sites. We enjoyed a hike on one of the nice hiking trails, saw many families enjoying the bicycle trails and paved park roads. There is an Inn and restaurant in the park. We talked about how nice it would be to meetup with non Camping family members at this location. There are horse stables and a winter toboggan run as well

Beautiful Park

Campground was tricky to pick out a site online. Our site ended up being pretty slanted but we were able to make it work with our tent. Beautiful park with great hiking trails. I have AT&T service and decent cell service, my husband has Verizon and he had no service at all.

The campground was very roomy and the bathroom and showers were very clean.

Cheap and the sights are very easy to get in and out..

Great for all seasons

With 2 beach accesses and lots of open spaces this is a great campground for the summer. The spring and fall seasons offer the camper many beautiful sights, be it flowers in bloom or the changing and falling of the leaves.

Lots to do

We visited Pokagon for a long weekend with friends. We took over sites 502, 504, 506 and 508. One thing that was clear - the sites vary in size. Sites 504 and 506 are on the smaller side; 502 was moderate and 508 was enormous. We found the bathrooms to be clean and easy to use. Was shocked to find showers just turned on (no timers). The lake is not self-contained within the park - there are houses across the way and various access points. Within the park, the lake provides a small swimming area and much larger areas for boating. Lots of motor boats and wave runners; kayaks and canoes were limited to the shoreline areas. The beach is a nice size and wasn't terribly busy. There's also a playground and snack shack on the beach. There is horseback riding for the 52-inch and taller crowd … anyone smaller is limited to a short donkey ride. There is a natural spring near the 500 loop where you can drink fresh (and cold!) water. There are plenty of options for hiking, biking and riding horses - all with separately marked trails. There's an amphitheater for outdoor productions and the Inn also has planned events. The park says only one vehicle per site, but we noticed many sites with multiple vehicles that stayed that way overnight. Overall, it's a nice park. The only downside is the variations in size of campsites and the risk you might end up on a small site without prior knowledge of what they look like.

Campsites not as advertised

We booked our site through tue reservation page which advertised the site dimensions as 25 x 60, and included photos showing a spacious beautiful site. We were surprised and disappointed to arrive at our site to find barely enough room to put up our tent and the site overgrown with thorny berry bushes and possible poison ivy. The bathrooms are alao gross with water covering the entire floor from either the showers or toilets, or quite possibly both.

Nice campground

The campground is nice and very well maintained. The beach is lovely if crowded. The campsites are very close together and some of them are on pretty significant inclines. We had an amazing time.

best state campground

Only electric hookups, but good for a short weekend. Best bike orbs, horseback riding, and quiet.
