We wanted to stay at Warren Dunes State Park, but I think this discovery was a better choice. A clean and friendly municipal campground on the St. Joseph River. The grounds are mostly open with little shade, but we had a tent site by the river and trees. What impressed me most was that they have a building specifically for cleaning fish, with scales, cutting boards and sinks. Another nice feature is the outdoor sink at the shower & restroom building for campers to wash dishes. As tent campers I wish more places had a set up like that. There’s a large stack of firewood, so it’s easy to get a bundle that’s good and dry. We did go to Warren Dunes for an afternoon. It’s busy and crowded. If you go to the beach, be aware there’s very little shade. North of there is Grand Mere State Park, which is better for hiking. In Berrien Springs, check out Zick’s specialty meats across the river from the camp.
We reserved 3 camp sites and when we arrived they were ready and very clean and well kept.
The bathroom was a very short walk and very clean. Fishing the river was fun and easy to access.
They have big playgrounds that the kids enjoyed. Along with horseshoes, basketball, and volley ball courts.
We will definitely come back shamrock park. Chuck the owner was very friendly and helpful.
Thanks chuck for jumping our truck from a dead battery.
Clean restrooms, friendly ranger, spot was right on the river. Lovely.
The ranger was awesome. You can buy firewood and ice on site. There’s WiFi, electricity, showers and bathrooms. The campground is right on the water-perfect for kayaking or fishing. There’s also all sorts of activities for kids-ping pong, basketball, cornhole and more. It’s also a quick walk to a grocery store and restaurants. There’s no grill on the fire pit, so plan accordingly.
Wonderful spot! Really quiet, super clean and nice facilities! Right on the river and two great playgrounds for kids!!!!
Enjoyed the fall, clean open camping. Level site, fire ring and pets welcome.
1/4 mile from the lovely village of Berrien Springs. We biked to town. Great friendly Pub for a cold one and a 5 star resturant right down the street.
