By far this is our favorite park this year. Surrounded by water on all sides, sunrise and sunsets are gorgeous. Plenary of beach for everyone including a dog beach!!! Bathrooms are well kept and clean. Kayak rentals are available as well.
We enjoy the water and the lighthouse. Lots of room to ride your bike. We also like to hit up the public beach. Sites are meh.
Tawas Bay is an awesome area to visit in the summer, and this state park is about the best camping you can get in the area. We stayed on site 70, and while it was crowded, we didn’t mind. We were close by to the boat launch, and just a short walk to the bathroom; not too far and not too close either. The bathrooms were clean, stocked, and had hot water for the showers whenever we needed it. On the opposite side of the bathroom, there’s even a full dishwashing sink, something I have yet to see at another campground. The ranger station has firewood and ice for sale, as well as maps and activity lists. As far as things to do at the campground, there are plenty of trails, including one leading to the lighthouse at the end of the point, as well as kayaks for rent at the boat launch. One thing I have to recommend it waking up early to catch the sunrise over Lake Huron. It is amazing! If you’re more of a night owl, sunsets are equally as great looking over the bay.
Locally there are tons of places to eat and things to do. Catch a sailboat race through the bay, head to any of the many beaches, or even walk through the small downtown. If you have a sweet tooth like me, there’s a super good chocolate shop called the Village Chocolatier, and an amazing place for ice cream called Marion’s. Totally recommend visiting Tawas, and staying at Tawas Point State Park!
The site is clean, staff are great and the facilities are top notch. I’m going to stay here again. My only con to this property is the beach is small and kayak access is very primitive.
We got at this site late, and it was completely crowded! Campers were almost touching! Way too close!
A lot of fun things for kids, lots of adventures. Close to town.
The park is very clean. Some sites are small, some are larger. Have visited many times. Fun interpretive programs for adults and kids. Beautiful beach to spend the day on. Located close to town. Lots of areas to walk as well. Not pet friendly though, they are allowed at the sites, but not on the beach.
Always packed, very little cover, but surrounded by memorable beaches, walking trails, and not far from town (if you feel the need to be a tourist).
This campground is as about crowded as Yosemite floor campgrounds. you are right up on top of every one and their mammoth 5th wheels. everyone is super friendly. Dog beach is NOT a beach but a wood walk way out to an area where your swimming dogs can swim. birding trails are great. Bring a repellent for biting flies. watch for many kids bombing around on their bikes & bike trails.
Our family loves this campground- it has a nice playground, and beach volleyball court near the entrance. There’s a nice sandy beach that faces Tawas Bay in the campground, the public beach on Lake Huron has rougher water and more rocks. there’s even a separate dog friendly beach. They have been replacing some of the old fire pits.
