Beautiful and quiet

Gorgeous area right on Jewell lake. Walking distance from Barton City. Sites have nice privacy between them. Utilized the grill on the fire ring alot Privy was well kept. The lake had a beach area to swim. Didn't actually intend on staying here but it was a happy accident and salvaged our memorial…

The dog beach is so much better than expected

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…

  • Our dogs don't even normally like to swim, but loved the dog beach, with it's warm shallow calm waters.

Awesome secluded Park!

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…

Great park with a lighthouse

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)…

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.

On the water

Well maintained. Sites are kind of tight. Well maintained facilities and it’s nice to be so close to the lake.

Narrow and tight, lots of tents, pop ups and sand. Nicely treed area though and of course next to the lake

Backcountry site=no neighbors!

There are only 4 primitive sites at Negwegon which is a dark sky preserve. We had site #3. It is a little less than a 2 mile hike. Water is available at parking lot. Pit toilet and picnic table at our site. If you prefer space and privacy, this is worth the minor effort. Reservations are made…

First time staying here. Great campground. Sandy beach. Swimming is great! Sites are close and driving through campground is tight. Cell and tv signal is limited. Pictures are from site 92

Loop de loop

Beautiful loop that I can’t wait to stay at for a night or so! Went 3 years back for a mid day hike in the winter and it was gorgeous with snow and ice! The campsites are first come first serve and they are rustic. If you are a minimalist, this loop is for you! The trail is only about 8 miles but…

Hidden Inland Lake Gem

Rustic first come first serve sites. Well water pump and vault toilets. No shower. We started on spot 8 but moved to 21 after one night - 8 was near the toilets and you get the occasion whiff of poop while 21 is on lake and more secluded. All the spots are very large with picnic table and fire…

Just As I Remember

I first camped here in college when some friends organized a group to go during our spring break. It was such a fun time. Our site was private and had great access to the pond/river below. The rangers stopped by just to say hi and were very cool.

Remembering this trip and camping area, my wife…
