Beautiful views of lake Huron. Unfortunately lake height has taken away the beach. The bathrooms are clean and the showers have lots of hot water. Two playgrounds and some short trails, one in the woods and one following the shore. Nice historical lighthouse museum, very friendly staff. Dog friendly park. Best sites are lakeside and on the corner lots. Otherwise it feels a bit like a parking lot. No shade! Most of the trees have been lost to the emerald ash borer. Worth another stay especially for boaters.
We chose this campground because it had rustic/tent sites left and because it is right on the water. I chose the last of the rustic sites because they appeared on the maps to be on the edge of the property, and we hoped that would allow our crew some privacy/quiet. Unfortunately we ended up between 2 roads so we heard a lot of cars, more in the mornings because folks also come to use the boat launch. There aren’t any trees on the lots, which we found disappointing.
Wood was easily accessible - drop $5.00 and grab a bundle - and clean water was available. The bathhouse was clean and easy to get to. The sites were nice and grassy and the fire pits were cleaned out. Each site had a picnic table, which were in good condition. Loved that we were close to the lighthouse and to Port Austin (we went to the farmers market and t PAK) and Port Crescent State Park for hiking.
We would camp here again but try to get a site on the water, so as to have some nature views.
Large and very open grounds right on Lake Huron, plumbing, electrical, some playgrounds and of course the lighthouse. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and clear dark sky's over the open water for star gazing. Plus, constant breeze makes it always cool and very low mosquitoes.
