Lake Life Camping!

WOW! My first time staying at a private campground vs. state campgrounds and I cannot speak highly enough of this oasis 🤩 There are a lot of seasonal campers who are all friendly, and the office staff are very warm and welcoming. There are not too many kids here, which is great for those of us…

Beautiful and Tranquil......A MUST!

The campground has a lot to offer. It's tucked away in the perfect spot with plenty of trees to make you feel like you're in the wild yet still a short drive to tourist attractions (like wineries and Fish Town). It does have campsites along the water and if you are lucky to snag one, you've hit…

Impressive entrance is misleading

Driving in you have a gated section and a regular section.

Class C is not ALLOWED in the gated section. I found that amusing since we have a 2020 Tiffin Wayfarer

Nice office Customer service was fair Laundry room good

Got to our assigned site Really terrible

Went to office Girls didn't know…

Pretty average

Pretty average state park with very little to do. It is closeish to Traverse City. Sites were small, bathrooms were clean. Near the Interlocken Center for the arts.

Hovering rangers... saved by the location

We went here with a somewhat large group of people, and reserved about 5 campsites together in anticipation of a trip tubing down the Platte River. We were applying sunscreen when another member of our group showed up. We set the closed bottle of sunscreen on the table next to our camper and…

Good for a 2-day camp.

Great river trail with a decent amount of campsites. We arrived late Friday and most spots were taken. I’d imagine most spots are scoped out earlier in the evening. A lot of people camping/running/hiking. The east side of the river is more hilly but has an abundance of water spots to fill up. The…

Great spots, close to beach

Great campsite with spacious sites not too close to each other. Sites are close to the beach (3-5 min walk). Vault toilets are to be expected. Quiet at night when I was there. Easy access to hiking trails and Glen Arbor. Would stay again! $20 for basic tent site (non-electric).

More like large backyard camping.

We stayed here back in the summer of 2019. This was the only place in the area that had a site available. Yard/sites were well kept and looked nice. Our site was small and cramped but thankful that it was open. They only had porta potties, no showers. We had to go to another nearby campground to…

Nice Camping Experience, but…….

The lots were not very level so the set up was a bit more difficult. Had to use several leveling blocks. We had to purchase extra hose for the sewage hook ups as they were situated further away and were also a bit uphill. The bathroom facilities were ok but not great. The showers were cramped and…

Nice beautiful campground situated in a nice woods setting. Sprayed for bugs so the bugs were not much of a nuisance. The camp sites are a nice firm gravel and pretty level. We didn’t even have to use leveling blocks. Facilities were very very clean and well kept. The owners are awesome and very…
