Absolutely LOVED it!

We stayed here in June of 2020 and it was definitely my favorite campground, we will be returning in 2021. We tent camped and loved how our site was surrounded by trees. The owners were wonderful as well!

Great park

This is a fantastic state park. Playgrounds are nice and entertaining, offers kayak launches and handicap accessible areas. Lots of fishing opportunities on both lakes and has a boat launch. The sites aren’t too terribly close to one another, but relatively close. There’s pavement for biking and trails for hiking. Interlochen is a nice little get away from Traverse City, but near enough to head into town for a day.

Nice and grassy

What I liked best about this park was that my children were not caked in dirt. While I understand that comes with the territory of camping, this campground provides a bit more of a grassy setting and offers a nice playground. The bathrooms were redone and are very nice! The thing I didn’t particularly like is how close you are to other sites. You are practically on top of each other. There are trails and a beach area as well as equine camping.

Great stay

Miles of hiking trails, amazing views. For the water sports enthusiast there is a lot to do Hamlin lake is 9 miles long, upper Hamlin is pretty undeveloped with some really cool little bays to explore, lower Hamlin has fantastic walleye pike and bass fishing.

One of the best places

I was raised near here and the camping at DH Day is always great. Sites are compacted and sometimes you're in a puddle if it rains, but the Beach & view of the stars make up for anything that's lacking. Reserve 6 months in advance to get your site--the good ones are hard to get now that booking can be done online.

It's a short bike ride along the Heritage trail to Glen Haven historical area or Glen Arbor, which although busy in summer, has several great restaurants & lots of shops to buy anything you need. The Crystal River also runs through here & is great for kayaking, tubing, or canoeing.

Drive a few miles & you can climb Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes or head over to Empire Village Beach for a perfect sunset & place for kids to play.

Repeat Customers

Although it's been a couple of years, I've lost track of how many times we visited the National Lake Shore and camped at Platte River. It has been a family favorite because the campground is good and being near the lake and the Platte River makes summer visits great. We have always found the campground to be well-maintained, clean, and available to many kinds of campers. There are rustic sites, pull-through sites, and walk-in sites. We really love kayaking or tubing on the river and icecream cones are only a short drive or bike ride away at the livery. The area is very popular for good reason so expect steep competition for camping and parking during the summer.

Great place to stay near the dunes with water access! Near cute towns.

We loved staying here b/c you are near all these cute towns, yet in a remote wilderness spot (Platte River Campground).

We were able to take a trail from the campground and go on the trail for the dunes.  Challenging walk!

We took a river trip with our own boats, and enjoyed the spectacular surroundings.  The water is crystal clear and you end at the lake.  Epic ending and very picturesque.

Crystal clear, beautiful water.  Nice!  The campground itself had some wonderful trails and was great.

Great campground for a family vacation

We loved Jellystone at silver lake!! The campground is next to a activity center with go karts a zip line a small coaster, bumper boats and mini golf!! The campground itself had a playground for the kids and a decent sized pool with a kiddie pool next to it!! The campground does fun activities with the kids, we made tie dye shirts at one of their activity nights!! Silver Lake has shops and good restaurants and playing on the sand dunes was a blast!!!

Rustic with river access

Never especially busy, lots of great sites. We chose an open spot (really 3 sites but in a meadow) so the kids had room to run and play. Multiple river access points made for a quick float for the kids. Lots of dirt roads for bike rides. Great mix of wooded and open sites.

Great location near the dunes

This is a good-sized campground with loops on either side of the road. None of the sites offer much privacy and in the busy season you can feel pretty packed in. But the location is awesome due to its proximity to the Silver Lake Off Road Vehicle Area, Lake Michigan, Silver Lake and the Little Sable Point Lighthouse. 

If you are into off-roading across sand dunes, this is the park to stay at, although this isn't by any means a quiet place to getaway. In addition to the dunes, which are available to off-road vehicles and pedestrians to enjoy, there's another part of the park that has a cool lighthouse from 1874 and there are some nice views all around the park. 

Cell service was decent on Verizon but non-existent for a Google Fi phone (which uses Spring and T-Mobile towers). 

Make sure you check your rig size against the site you are planning gon reserving as many sites have odd shapes or require some maneuvering due to the placement of trees and fire pits. Also, be aware that the road through the campground is quite narrow so you'll need to take your time and, if at all possible, arrive when you still have daylight available to see everything. 

Note that 20 and 30 amp is available at all sites, but you often are sharing a power pole with several other sites.

Bathrooms were in good shape and offer unisex shower stalls outside the restrooms, which is always nice.
