This beach was recommended to us from a friend. It didn’t disappoint. Not too many people, very clean, and a plethora of rocks to pick. Make sure to wear water shoes though, unless you want some foot therapy while walking along the beach.
Will be back for more.
Lakeport has lots of sites some back into the woods, some face the water. They have updated the bathrooms super nice. Also the playground equipment has been updated. The sizes on the site are large for the most part. Some sites in the middle don’t have a lot of shade so do your homework. There is a camp store, for anything you forget. They also sell wood at the store, bonus. Staff was friendly and made good suggestions for what site I might like. Weekends are always booked months in advance. During the week you’ll have a better chance.
We camp here often and always have a great time.
We had a blast tenting with some friends in September! While the evenings got cool, the fire pits were great, the other campers were all friendly to us, and the facilities were more than adequate. Our site was level and clean. We loved the beach area even though it was too chilly for a swim, the ambiance of smelling campfires while watching the rolling waves crash in was great! Several great places for a hammock as well!
This was one of my least favorite state parks. Like many Michigan State Parks, the facilities are old and the campgrounds are overcrowded in the summer with local campers. We stay here one night on the way Ontario. The border crossing at Sarnia is about 20 miles south of the campsite. The sites are on top of each other with no privacy. The beach on the east side of the camp borders Lake Huron. It’s not much to look at with limited views and just a thin rocky shoreline. The beach is just a few hundred yards from the camp through a line of trees. The restroom facilities were outdated and in need of repair. This may be ok for a one night stop but would not recommend beyond a short stay.
This campground was really nice and quiet. It was also right by the lake so you could walk through the woods and go sit on the beach! However, the water is freezing so nobody was swimming. The scenery was still nice though!
I love the fact it is close to home. We live in Fort Gratiot so when I have a work weekend we can just hook up and pull the camper up to the lakeside campground and enjoy some peace. The sites are very spacious in size and a few provide full hookups. There is some hiking available and the beach is right there to enjoy. Staff seems friendly and we never had any issues with them or any of the campers on site. We enjoy the peace and quiet of the wooded area and a nice campfire, so this is a nice place for us.
Very nice park, i think the staff could be a bit friendlyer, I had a great time both times that I have been here, The park itself is wonderful with the beach and all..
Most sites are full sun, local trails for biking and walking nice beach. Make sure to bring water shoes as the first few feet of the water is very rocky, but the beach area is large and clean, kids played in the sand all day.
A nice state operated campground on lake huron, the beach is awesome, the one drawback is the rocks that extend about 20 yards from the waters edge, but if you have water shoes its not so bad, the bathrooms are clean and there are activities for the kids on weekends, check out the pile of painted rocks people place there, as its always getting new ones.
