5 Reviews of Pontiac Lake State Rec Area
Great state park with hiking and large sites

Nice hike to the lake. Large sites and great biking area.

Private sites

This campground is my FAVORITE in Oakland County. The sites aren't super far away from each other but there are trees between sites so from most of the sites you can't really see your neighbors. The camping loops also link to a one mile trail which will lead you to the beach if you like hiking!

wonderful campground!

There are tons of mosquitoes and ticks, so make sure you bring bug spray. Also make sure that all food and garbage is secure at night, the raccoons have no fear.

Nice sites but tons of bugs

We go here every year with friends and the staff is so nice. The spots are big and well maintained. The biggest drawback is the enormous amounts of mosquitos and ticks in the sites. Every night we had to triple check each other and our pets for ticks. We found at least 1a night on us. Last trip I came home with over 30 mosquito bites.

Absolutely beautiful camp ground

Spent a weekend there with my son, secluded site, staff was great and camp grounds were clean.
