So many activities

This resort is great if you are wanting a bustling campground full of activities. There is a pool, jump pad, miles and miles of mountain biking trails and hiking trails, a man made lake which has some inflatable water toys. The campground also has a pool, hammock area, bikes and other rental toys, a mountain bike training course (rather technical) paved roads, volleyball courts, basketball courts, dodgeball games that take place along with themed weeks. There is always something going on. You are about 15 minutes away from downtown Traverse City which has great food and a fun downtown area. Gorgeous views!

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.

Logmark

Canoe in tent camping only. Nice spot to fish or take a cool dip.

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.

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.

Huge Resort

We were here off season , daily rate was $40 . There is a lot to do in this park , zip line , pool , walking trail, lake. Golf cart rentals . Lots of kid activities, in fact there was a Halloween party as we pulled in . Gated to pull back to sites, our first site was pretty unlevel but we were able to move without issue, Good T-Mobile and antenna TV Not sure where the picture on the site was taken but does not seem to be from this CG There seems to be 2 listing for this resort .

Scenic, rustic, beautiful

It's a small rustic campground along the national scenic Pine River.

It gets  busy on the weekends with hikers and kayaks,  but quits down during the week. I was here 5 days for the Indian Summer and it was fantastic to witness here. Beautiful hiking trail and river.

Loved it.
