Our family campground is located on beautiful South Sand Lake in Hillsdale, Michigan. The campground is surrounded by 135 wooded acres at the gateway to the Irish Hills. We are a campground that offers a modern, clean facility for all types of camping. Our campground has many amenities to keep the whole family entertained and relaxed, including WiFi and Cable TV. We’re sure you will make wonderful, lasting memories with your friends and family.

Gateway Park Campground is currently a 99 site facility with 4 cabins and one rental trailer. We are a family campground; family owned and operated and we cater to families. The campground is located on South Sand Lake (all sports lake, great for fishing) in Hillsdale and it is believed that we got our name because we are at the Gateway to the Irish Hills here in Michigan.

Gateway Park Campground is on South Sand Lake in Hillsdale MIThe campground has had many improvements & renovations over the years and the most recent being in 2013 at which time we upgraded our primitive camping area to 22 full hook up seasonal sites and added two deluxe cabins. We added 24 channels of TV to all the campsite and added Wi-Fi to the park. We went from having all types of camping to becoming mainly a full hook up RV campground. All of our nightly or Transient sites and newest seasonal sites have cement pads and cement patios and most sites offer up to 50amp service (older seasonal sites vary if they have cement slabs or 50 amp).

We do a lot of planned activities as do many campgrounds but one thing that makes us unique is we are all inclusive. We do not charge for our activities other than an occasional donation basket to help cover the cost of things like a hog for a hog roast. And we also donate all proceeds for donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital once our costs are covered.
