Amazing trip

We went there tenting as two couples and there was more than enough room for our tents and dogs. With plenty of hiking trails and only a small walk to the beach, we had plenty to do. The vault toilets were not the most well kept, but that was the only downfall to an amazing camping trip right on…

30 minutes from Mackinac

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

Nice grounds, friendly staff

Nicely run with several loops surrounding a central bathroom/shower building. Shade and sun with tall pine trees in rows. Not much privacy. Bathroom is nice, but if you’re a tent camper, it can be a bit of hike to the toilet. Showers run on quarters.

Beautiful Place

Our family really enjoyed the scenery and the proximity to Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. Unfortunately we just couldn’t quite handle the level of mosquitos there. We found the site to be comfortable and well-kept. The walking trails are beautiful.

Perfect location

The campground is located just 3 miles from downtown Traverse City but feels remote. The sites are large, shaded by tall trees. East Bay beach is beautiful and you can swim or rent kayaks and stand up paddle boards right on the beach. The TART bike path on the opposite side of the campground is…

Nice State Park

This is a typical Michigan State Park. The facilities are well maintained and clean. On a nice lake with a good swim area. We stayed because of the location to Copper Harbor and the Porcupine Mountains.

a pleasant surprise!

For a campground wedged between a highway and railroad tracks, amazingly quiet (though there are small planes in the daytime). It’s crowded, make no mistake, but the sites are very large, and the tall pines dominate everything, so no baking in the sun. You can walk out the back to the nearby…

Small little campground

This is a cute little campground located in Central Lake. Many of the water sites are very close together, but it offers you access to the lake for fishing, paddling and more. There is a little creek that runs through and the playground for kids is actually next to the campground. There is a boat…

Primitive State Forest CG right on the Boardman River

I like the location; very secluded in the State Forest but only a half hour from downtown Traverse City. This facility meets the recreation need of a diverse cross section of Michigan residents. It’s a great home base or overnight camp for canoeists and kayakers (my particular interest). The camp…
