This was a really awesome campground we found kind of last minute when things didn’t work out at the other place we were trying to camp, and we were not upset about it at all. We actually we’re happy our plans fell through, because the site was better than the one we were trying to get at another…

Great little sites within the trees and near the Devoe Lake, which has a small beach. Lots of trails, lakes and the Rifle River which was awesome to float down. Pit toilets were clean. They have wood for sale at the entrance of the park.

Site 52 and sites in immediate area was over 12” out of level from front to back. Looked like our camper was doing a wheelie. Check in nobody around signs said use yellow phone on board. Is this safe during covid? I called 800 number listed on board on cell phone the lady was mad and said I had…
Pros: Location! 25 minutes from Mackinaw City, 10 Minutes from Pellston for supplies. Right on Burt Lake. Clean pit toilets. Generally not too crowded.
Cons: Small sites, especially for a Statr Forrest Campground. Can be pretty loud.
Sites are good size. Reservation side has sites up to split rail fence. Ramps to walk down to water.
We were greeted at the gate by an extremely helpful and knowledgeable gentleman. He provided good directions, and helped us with our Rec Pass.
The site was easy to find, spacious, and had adequate distancing from other campers. It included a fire pit and picnic table too.
The lake was serene in…

We stopped here in August 2020 to do a day of river tubing on the Au Sable. Stayed two nights with my family (2 adults, 4 kids) Nothing too amazing or too bad about the park. It's fairly hilly so be aware of that, and it's a bit of a walk down to the lake. However, the highlight for us was snagging…
Vibe: Feels smaller than it is. Pretty standard state park. Older crowd.
Facilities: On the outdated side.
General spots: Muddy. Big storm had come through the night before and most of the spots had sizeable mud pits.
Privacy: Moderate amount.

This park is older, but has a lot to offer. There are kayak rentals, a boat launch, and activities that the host organizes. If staying on the water, there are vault toilets only and the sites are small. Seemed best for really small campers or tents. The playground offers two swing sets and a small…

Love being shaded by full mature trees everywhere yet the campgrounds are very well cared for inside and out. We’ve chosen to rent a cabin. Simple yet clean. I’m a bit fussy about having a firm mattress; no problem, I brought a firm air mattress to put over their marine covered like mattress. My…
Need time to explore more
This is a state park so the main attraction is the location. It’s on Otsego Lake and has a really nice beach and swimming area. They also have a fishing pier and boat launch. It’s close to Gaylord and the city Elk Park. Bathrooms were in ok condition but not great. Most of the sites were dirt…

Stay in the south lot for a larger sight, the main park is nice, good play area for the kids and nice boat launch
Spent a week here with only two other campers. Rustic. Maintained Gravel Road. Variety of trees. Walking path to AuSable River. Canoe launch at end main road past campground.
Awesome experience here. Some sites have standing water. We did not have issue with standing water at our site, bit many others were flooded. Fully stocked camp store with pizza and ice cream. Fishing off the inlet and Jetties were good.
Not all sites have full hookups
