7 Reviews of Sterling State Park
Has what you need

Campground is right by the power plant, but also have beautiful views of the lake. There is not much shade and if lot is full you are very close to other campers.

Basic campground

Nice for a family camp. Beach could be cleaner. Over all it’s your vary basic campground

Nice clean

Was great for a state park. Lots where we'll spaced. Bathroom clean. Need bigger beach

Nice large paved sites for campers or RVs

Sites are nice and large paved slabs, most trees are immature offering little shade. Beach is kept fairly clean and raked often. Bathrooms and showers are good.

Ok camping if the lake is not under restrictions

Nice state park with typical family camp amenities. Used a pop up camper, some shade trees but very limited (assume full sub sites). Some hiking and biking trails. Swimming if the lake is not with bloom (which happens a lot) but is close to sites. Normally I am not very comfortable letting my kids swim here due to the water pollution and bloom). There is some wildlife around on the trails and a sandy beach to play on though.

good for RV camping boating.

open space, good for RV camping. access to Lake Erie…goog fishing.

Memorial Day Weekend

Sterling is an interesting park, nestled between the Fermi nuclear power plant and the coal powered DTE plant it makes for an unique experience. The sites are all in full sun, with not much privacy between them, but most campers are respectful. The beach is a short walk from any site, mostly sandy with small rocks occasionally. There is a boat launch which is extremely popular and the bass and walleye fishing can't be beat. No boat, no problem. The park has several fishing piers as well as a kayak launch into a small inlet which is navagatable all the way to the beach, approximately two miles. There is a bike path that will take you all the way to the Historic Rasin River Battlefield and then to downtown Monroe. Additionally, all of the sites in this park have 30amp electric while also boasting quite a few sites with full hookup. Every site has a blacktop pad for parking or trailer setup, with many pull thru sites available.
