This was my first time on Drummond and the township park was a pleasant surprise. After taking the ferry over, it’s only about a 5-10 minute drive up the road to the park. Run a lot like a rustic state park, it’s a self-serve, pick a spot, and put the money in the slot kinda place. Each site has its own rustic stone fire pit and picnic table. I believe the campground had about 48 sites and 30 of which had electric. I think probably 20 of them had lakefront (which were a bit smaller). The wooded sites were pretty large and had nice privacy. The bathrooms were rustic style pit toilets and there are no showers. There were however some beautiful hiking trails and beaches for swimming. The island itself is full of ORV trails, so most of the people come for that. The rest are just looking for some beautiful scenery on a quiet island. I will definitely be back!
Most beautiful place in Michigan. Favorite sites are right on the shore which is rocky. There is a shallow sandy swim beach. On calm days, I can't get off the water for long. Reminds me of the Carribean with all the islands in the bay. If you have 4 wheel drive, go to fossil beach. No showers, pit toliet, electric at some sites
The campgrounds are lovely, and you can get sites directly on the lake. The water is quite rocky and hard to swim in without water shoes, but with a $10 pair I bought at a local gift shop, I had no problems. If you check out the lake at night you can watch HUNDREDS of crawdads crawling across the rocks! If you aren't scared of the leeches that also come out at night, you can catch them by the bucketload! They're great eating, and even though there were 10 of us in the water with visible leeches swimming about, not one person got bit. There's also wonderful hiking trails that start right at the campsite, and the woods hide beautiful rock formations and the stone foundations of long destroyed houses. If you're planning on driving anywhere instead of hiking, bring a jeep. Some of those little dirt roads can be very muddy and a normal car would DEFINITELY get stuck out there.
Wonderful campground! We have stayed here twice. There are quite a few sites right on the lake, and all the sites are well spaced out, with a good balance of shade and sun. Sites on the water can get a little breezy if inclimate weather rolls in. The campground has outhouses, pump water, is dog friendly, and some sites have electricity. Great for campers or tents. There is also a nice three mile hiking trail right off the campground.
