St. Ignace state park

Great quiet campground. Great for landing on the way to the north or the south. Clean bathrooms. Note: you are not allowed to use a generator on the lake side sites.

On the lake & right off the highway.

This campground is exactly as it’s named; right on Lake Michigan.

While it is directly off of US-2 and road traffic is noticeable and slightly distracting while sleeping, it’s a perfect spot to set up camp for a day or two!

We reaeved a site on the road side of the grounds but after further…

About This Campground

Lake Michigan Campground at St. Ignace provides great views and unlimited access to Lake Michigan. The area has excellent trails, winding hikers through ancient sand dunes, windswept foundations and a variety of vegetation.

Recreation

The campsites are located between 20- to 30-foot high sand dunes and are just steps away from great body-surfing waves, that crash onto the lake's sandy beaches during commonly high winds. Lake Michigan does offer fishing, but anglers tend to prefer Brevort Lake better, for its catches of walleye, pike, bass, perch and crappie. Campers at Lake Michigan have access to the popular Sand Dunes Cross-Country Ski Trail, as well as the North Country National Scenic Trail, which connects a host of natural areas, from valleys to hilltops, prairies to forests and everything in between. Both trails offer miles of terrain, keeping hikers busy for as long as they choose.

Facilities

The campground offers many shaded and open sites for tent and RV camping. Some sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Picnic tables and campfire rings with grills are provided.

Accessible vault toilets are available, as well as drinking water. Hookups are not provided. Parking spurs are comprised of grass and dirt. A trash collection bin is available at the campground and a dump station can be found at Brevort Lake.

Natural Features

The campground stretches along a bluff between the highway and the lake. Dunes, waves, sand and wind are the primary environmental factors present. Visitors enjoy watching shorebirds, like the Spotted Sandpiper, which can often be seen running up and down the beaches throughout the day.

Nearby Attractions

Brevort Lake is about five miles from the campground. St. Ignace is about 18 miles from the campground and is the closest town.
