Full hook ups in the weeds

Very cheap - 30 amps, water and sewer hookup on unlevel overgrown sites. Not exaggerating that weeds are a foot high covering all the sites and grounds like a pasture - unless you bring your own weedeater or mower. The ancient class c camper next to us doesn't appear to be movable and has no sewer…

Beautiful campground on Lake Huron

This campground is a must do. Electric site campground with a short walk to the beach on Lake Huron. One of few campgrounds you can view both sunrise over Lake Huron and sunset from the beach. Showers and flush toilets. Great biking and hiking trails. Really nice day use area with pavilion. Mini…

Classic family fun.

My family has been coming to Cheboygan/Onaway

MI for as long as I can remember. This campsite is always clean, comfortable and fun. It is perfect for a getaway right on the water in a beautiful park. Especially in the fall this park is beautiful!! I will always come back to this park. I hold it…

Quiet Gem

This campground was quiet and peaceful. The owners are some of the sweetest I’ve ever met and they keep the campground clean and kept up. There is a small area for swimming and a bathroom house on the property. Loved staying here. Lots of trails nearby.

Charming older campground

With incredibly friendly owners / hosts. Dated bathhouse is very clean. Sites are narrow but the great hosts and location make it a hr eat stay.

Nice SP on Northern Lake Huron

We stayed 8-3 to 8-7, only issue was the weather. Didn’t rain, but was hit with a cold front 😳. This was a great SP, no issues fitting our 36’ TT with 2 slides in our pull through site. We were nestled in the back of the park. Electrical box did have both 30 and 60 amp service. Our site was gravel…

Terrible camping experience

I just saw a review from another camper who experienced the same as me; generators everywhere, no peace and quiet, no rangers to tell people to turn down their music, no one to police the crazy orv drivers who treated the 10 mph roads as race tracks.  Do not go here if you're looking for a nice…

Rustic but worth it

We stumbled on this campground when Ocqueoc's first come first serve sites were full. This campground is also first come first serve but way more sites. The lower site is where we stayed and literally had a waterfront site. The upper has HUGE SITES and is shaded better, but cant see the water.…

Beautiful rustic campground

The campground itself was gorgeous, well maintained and spacious. (Tent) Camping there was the worst experience I’ve ever had. I pick rustic campgrounds for a reason. This one was full of RVs & 5th wheels all running on generators. There is no peace here. If you’re looking for quiet- it’s…

Camping in a Pandemic

This was our first camping vacation since COVID-19. Our intent was to find somewhere isolated, beautiful and allow travel without risk and DeTour State Forest met these expectations for us. Not once did we have a physical distance concern at the campground. We left home with a 6 hour drive to our…

Phenomenal!

Stayed here during Labor Day weekend & the sites are huge! You don’t have to worry about your neighbors getting too close! Along with that, when we went there were little-to-no mosquitos! That’s enough to make a camping trip the best one yet. Plenty of access to the water as well! They also…

Great Family get away

We visited her to enjoy the lock's. But the family found it was so much more enjoyable to be able to just step outside the camper and see the boat's go by every chance. Sites on the river are very nice with a great view.

Head to the top!

There are two sides to this campground and although the lower side has lake front sites, they are pretty small. We opted to head over to the upper part where the sites are three times the size. We were only one of two campsites taken, so it was extremely peaceful and quiet. The sky was gorgeous. In…

Great place to relax

We found this site by accident looking to visit the locks. There isnt a lot to do in the park but watch the freighters but thats why we wanted to go. Minutes to town and the locks, tours and more. I will be back for a waterfront spot.
