6 Reviews of Onaway State Park
Tranquil and Great for the fall

This camp site is really cool and makes for a greta weekend escape from reality.  There is a trail network that cuts through the forest of the campground, which is a nice plus and rests peacefully on the shores of Black Lake.  There is a wide variety of tree species throughout the campsite, which is nice, including these towering conifers.  The campsite also features a really nice beach, with a community campfire area, and good showers.  Because of the size and the design/layout of the campsite it really takes you away from reality and puts you right into the wilderness where you can relax, unwind, and hangout with fellow campers.  I would definitely recommend this place, especially in the fall because the trees changing colors really adds a nice element to this campground.  The only thing to not was that our site, site 5, had a really rock ground beneath the dirt which made it difficult to stake our tent down.

Nice tent camping

Great sites by the lake

Perfect place to relax

If you dislike state parks due to crowds and loud campers, you will love this little gem. Well managed and very clean facilities make this a pleasure to stay at. We spent Memorial Day weekend here and even with a full park it was very quiet snd relaxing. Great for tents and smaller RV’s.

Wow Michigan!

Onaway is a great state park! Beautiful setting, clean and well kept by friendly staff. Book in advance in the summer to score a lake front spot. You won't regret it!

Beautiful campground, just the beach needs to be fixed up better

The beach needs to be bigger

Black lake is a great lake for boating. The camp ground is nice, quite is enforced. People are nice. Sites are a bit small, trails lead into your camp so random people show up.
