River fun

Great little family run campground. Seasonal are on one side and non seasonal are located on the other side or down by the river. We have camped here several times as a family. They provide floatation devices and transport for river floats. If you like rustic tent camping they have amazing on the river sites for you, unfortunately no campers (rv or pull behind) are allowed down the hill.

Underrated campground

Most people go to Wilderness State park on the south side of the bridge, but this is an equally wonderful campground.  As with Wilderness, this park has two sections of campgrounds- a higher loop in the woods and a lower loop along the shore of Lake Michigan.  Both are desirable and have decent sized sites.  There is a good hiking trial through the park with multiple vista points for viewing the lake and Mackinac Bridge.  It's a couple minutes away from the ferry to go to Mackinac Island.  Highly recommend this campground particularly when other ones are harder to get into.

Wonderful campground!

One of the best state campgrounds.  This is a very large park and can be hard to get into.  It has wonderful trails around it, good sized sites, an active ranger program for kids. There is the upper campground (Pines), which does not have direct views or water access, but is a great campground.  The lower section is on the water.  There is beach access for all campers along the water and gorgeous views of the Mackinaw Bridge.  It's a great hub for all the activities in the area: the dark sky park, Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, etc.

Skip this one

We were not a fan of this park, and we're the demographic they aim for (3 elementary aged boys).  There is a small pool that was ALWAYS packed.  One night we were there, they put up a bounce house, but the teens who were supposed to be supervising just sat on their phones.  All of the sites were tiny and crammed together.  I've been to a number of KOA's and this was one of my least favorites. The one part that was great was the bathroom/shower facilities.  They were very private, very clean and great hot water.

One of our favorites

Without a doubt this is one of our favorite campgrounds.  It's a bit older, so the campsites are quite large compared to modern campgrounds.  There are huge trees throughout, easily navigable roads, etc.  There are two sections to the park, one a bit smaller with a gorgeous new bathroom.  The other larger section has older facilities, but clean. There are a couple beaches here, some more popular than others.  Since there is a boat launch, kayak rentals, and small café at this state park, it can get busy in the public area during the summer.  The campground is along a paved bike path.  It's not far from the closest town, which has a couple restaurants, shops, etc.  The only drawback to this park is that it abuts a very busy road and can have a fair amount of road noise if you're on that side.

Fun Rustic Cabins!

We have been going yearly to the cabins in Cheboygan State Park for many years and have stayed at each cabin they offer.  All of them are great, vault toilet and hand pump for water, drive up (although the road in can be a little rough).  Some have better beach access then others, 2 of them have firepits on the beach to enjoy the amazing sunsets.  Excellent view of the bridge and many large boats going by, perfect photo opportunity!

We scored a spot right on the beach

We stayed at Wilderness in October this fall.  The fall colors were just about fully turned and it was just gorgeous.  This park is geared towards the RV camper and they have sites for just about any size rig.  The sites along the lake are geared more toward the sorter rigs.  Ours is a short 5'er and we fit just fine.

The only downside to this trip was the very high lake levels.  On the west side of the park with the more scenic beaches were just not accessible.  Actually, they didn't exist.  The water level completely inundated them.  Even the shore trees were in the water.  That prevented us from hiking where we had hoped to hike.  That really limited us.

The park was clean and the dump station clean and plenty of room  We would camp here again.

A great campground

First off, this place is huge and has a lot to do and take in. It's a great place to take a walk, ride a bike, explore a path, or participate in the many activities they offer or just relax. Different areas of the park have a different vibe but all are good. Views of the bridge at night are simply awesome and you don't need a bridge view site to enjoy it, just head down to the grassy area by the water and grab a bench or light a fire in one of the fire pits. Most staff very friendly/helpful (seems there is always one know it all that isn't 🙂). Pay attention to lot descriptions on the website, they are very upfront that some lots are small. We had a 50a large and had way more room than we could use. Trees/bushes between sites for privacy. Looking forward to going back again in 2021.

Very nice

Spent a week here over the July 4th holiday. Very nice park, clean, and we'll maintained. Owners lead you to your site and assist getting your rig lined up with water/sewer connections. Great pool, separate area for boat/trailer parking. Very quiet at night.

Beautiful Park on the Lake

We enjoyed our time at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping! We stay a week and stayed on two different sites and loved both, but the lake front view was definitely the best. Great view of the bridge and island! Beautiful Sunsets! Biggest campground we have ever stayed at. They pack them in-small sites, but run like a well oiled machine. The store had all the items we needed or forgot. We were close to the bike trail that went into Mackinaw City, it was a 3 miles to town. Definitely worth the drive!!
