The site we stayed at had an amazing view and was right on the water.
This place rarely gets busy. Nice sites with great views of Avery lake. Clean privy, cold water. Quiet. Alot of state forest roads to explore around here
The campsites themselves are sadly devoid of much shade, and only a few even have a water view. But the dog beach, a bit of a walk down the trail towards the lighthouse, surely exceeded our expectations. Most places designate barely usable waterfront areas to dog beach. At first glance, the dog…
We rented their pet-friendly cabin. It consists of a single room, two bunk beds, a table mounted to the wall, two chairs, a mini fridge, a microwave, coffee pot, a wall heater and a wall-mounted fan. Nothing fancy, but serviceable. There's a site with a picnic table, grill, and fire pit,…

Great, quiet, cozy place to take kids or anyone for that matter. Right on the river and clean, flat lots.
Beautiful little park, secluded and quiet. Every backcountry site has beach access which would be incredible in the summer. We went in early spring, I would recommend sites 1-3 for that time of year because they are protected from the wind. We stayed at site 4 which is the most secluded but also…
East Tawas is a place I've visited most of my adult life. There's some walking trails here, the lighthouse is a close walk/bike from anywhere in the park. Getting to town is a few minute drive, or a very long bike ride on the road.
Like most Michigan State Parks, your site has electric (30/50)…
Stayed there last October, it was quiet and the campsites were large. There are a couple of ADA sites as well. No electric or water hook ups. The one thing is the water in the Lake is heavily contaminated with PFAS. There are warnings to not touch the foam that occurs on the shoreline of the lake.…
Beautiful spots, nicely spaced, right on the water. Ranger stopped in to say hey each day. I plan on going back before it gets too busy.
Lots of things to do in this area! The large campground is crowded in summer months and you have to buy tokens to take a shower, but the views and access to the River are spectacular.
Lovely views of the lake! Busy, but clean, friendly and quiet. Hiking trails and a playground for the kids.
Well maintained. Sites are kind of tight. Well maintained facilities and it’s nice to be so close to the lake.
Camped here in early fall. The area around here is beautiful with lots of sights and trails. This park has a wide variety of individuals and many long term residents but the staff were pretty friendly and the lake is beautiful (especially in the early morning).
Narrow and tight, lots of tents, pop ups and sand. Nicely treed area though and of course next to the lake
The camping is dispersed with walk in sites or drive in. There is a variety of pit toilets with trash pick up.
