Paradise in the Midwest

We camped at the rustic sites, and they were absolutely wonderful. Sleeping Bear Dunes would be rivaling Wilderness State Park and/or Hiawatha NF on the Lake Michigan coast in the UP as my favorite, #1 spot I’ve ever camped/visited. Most of the state parks in Michigan along the Lake Michigan coast…

An artist’s paradise

I camped here for one night while I was on a business trip up North, and unfortunately didn’t get to experience much, but I did some recon and I am super eager to go back. This campground is all rustic, but it is by far one of the most beautiful campgrounds I’ve ever seen. The campground is at the…

Lake Life Camping!

WOW! My first time staying at a private campground vs. state campgrounds and I cannot speak highly enough of this oasis 🤩 There are a lot of seasonal campers who are all friendly, and the office staff are very warm and welcoming. There are not too many kids here, which is great for those of us…

Beautiful and Tranquil......A MUST!

The campground has a lot to offer. It's tucked away in the perfect spot with plenty of trees to make you feel like you're in the wild yet still a short drive to tourist attractions (like wineries and Fish Town). It does have campsites along the water and if you are lucky to snag one, you've hit…

Hovering rangers... saved by the location

We went here with a somewhat large group of people, and reserved about 5 campsites together in anticipation of a trip tubing down the Platte River. We were applying sunscreen when another member of our group showed up. We set the closed bottle of sunscreen on the table next to our camper and…

Great spots, close to beach

Great campsite with spacious sites not too close to each other. Sites are close to the beach (3-5 min walk). Vault toilets are to be expected. Quiet at night when I was there. Easy access to hiking trails and Glen Arbor. Would stay again! $20 for basic tent site (non-electric).

Beautiful Campground 😃

This review is based on our stay back in July of 2020 during the 4th of July Holiday weekend. Lots of shade. Campsites were pretty level. Bathhouse facilities were very very clean and well kept. The campground is beautiful and rather large. Lots of sites for every type of camper even lakefront…

Nice Camping Experience, but…….

The lots were not very level so the set up was a bit more difficult. Had to use several leveling blocks. We had to purchase extra hose for the sewage hook ups as they were situated further away and were also a bit uphill. The bathroom facilities were ok but not great. The showers were cramped and…

Rustic Yet Close To Town

Long Lake Wexford was a great little spot. The first come - first serve sites are large an spacious. Some are tree covered and more forested while others are open, grassy and lakeside. Although it’s near an ORV trailhead it was quite (expect for the sandhill crane calls!). On a peaceful lake but a…

Quick stop for river tubing but enjoyed the campground too!

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…

Great getaway campground

Campsites are clean, restrooms are within a few minute walk, and a water pump is available. A couple walk-to sites are difficult to make the trips up and down the stairs if you have a lot of gear…but they are secluded and peaceful. I have an inflatable boat, and was able to beach it at our…

Overnight Stop For Gear Repair!

I'll be honest that I only scratched the surface of Sleeping Bear Dunes.

I had planned on doing much more paddling and hiking there, but had a tent shock cord blowout the morning before heading there.

So I spent that morning tracking down a repair kit and then 3 hours repairing my tent once I…

Quiet camping near Traverse City

This is a quiet campground near Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes with amazing views of Lake Michigan. We stayed at site 42 right across the dirt camp road from the lake. Not many RVs so the nights were quiet. Vault toilets needed to be pumped empty when we visited near the end of the season in…
