16 Reviews of Kohler-Andrae State Park
Great location on Lake Michigan

Sites (135 family, 68 of them electric, 2 group sites and one teepee) are generous in size with varying amounts of privacy. Two loops have bathrooms with flush toilets and showers while two just have pit toilets. Bathrooms and showers were clean with expected light water pressure. There were also laundry facilities, something I’ve not seen before in a state park campground. Trails, a small marsh boardwalk and the dunes cordwalk provide a nice exploration of the area. We were there on a rainy weekday in September and it was quiet but I expect that would not be the case on weekends and in the summer.

Tent Camping

Nice campground, we didn't have a reservation and showed up on a Tuesday and camped for a few nights. If you plan to camp for a weekend, you must make a reservation way in advance.

Clean campsite, with shaded areas. Sites are open. We were in the non-electric 200's, not as many RV's in this area.

At night you can hear the waves on Lake Michigan.

Hiking is nice, there is a dune boardwalk trail that is good that runs parallel to Lake Michigan shoreline.

There's Nothing You Don't Love About Kohler-Andrae

K-A is absolutely incredible. The ONLY bad thing about it, is that is has gotten so popular within the last 3-5 years and getting a site is near impossible. It is a large campground with a lot of campsites that are pretty close together. Some sites make up for the closeness with good seclusion (trees, brush, etc.)

K-A is clean and the facilities are very nice. The beachfront is gorgeous. The boardwalk is a lovely walk in nature. Rangers have always been friendly and helpful. This campground is VERY family-friendly so if you're looking for quiet seclusion, try October or a different campground altogether.

Lake side serenity

This campsite was so peaceful. It was not far from the lake and not far from the bathroom. It was comforting to be in the trees.

Kohler Andrae State Park- formerly Terry Andrae

Daily and weekly visitor, excellent cycling, fantastic beach (although lake levels are currently quite high. Have enjoyed the Teepee several times with family. brand new Teepee this year with new cots and lake views! Always quiet, friendly, green. Many deer, sand hill cranes, turtles. Great nature center. great evening programs…

Great Camping & Hiking

Grew up near Kohler-Andrae state park, and it was always a fun place to go. Right on Lake Michigan, had nice and clean beaches. Campsites are a nice-not the most private but its a big park, and the facilities are stocked and clean. Hiking trails are great, especially the ones through the dunes. Definitely worth the stay! Happy Trails!


Living rather close to this park, this is our "go-to" place to camp. It has a great variety of activities available. There is a beach AND a dog beach so it's pet-friendly. Dogs are not allowed on all of the trails, but there are many you can take them on. Being on the water, you can swim, kayak, fish, or just soak up some rays! There are also non-reservable sites available. There are many electric sites, clean bath houses, friendly campground hosts, some rather private sites as well. It's a short walk from the campsites to the lake. Our favorite site is next to the woods where we have seen ample deer, turkey, foxes, and birds. Close to town if you need supplies, firewood and ice is available in the park.

Kid and Pet friendly

The campground is set in the pines right on the coast of Lake Michigan. We went in late June, and the site was surprisingly free of mosquitos. The size of the site is pretty typical. Not huge, probably enough for two tents. The best part of the park were the trails in the sand dunes. We took a daily hike from the campsite to the nature center through them, often making side trip to wade through the gentle waves of the lake.

The whole campground was beautiful and comfortable, and we're definitely planning another trip.

Gorgeous, scenic, clean and family friendly

We camped for about 5 days with our family of 6. The first site we made reservations for was awful. It had no trees and was right by the entrance. But before we set up our tents, the host told us who was leaving and that we could take their first come first serve site. That one was shady, private enough, walking distance to the clean showers and bathrooms. It was quiet by 11, not a party camp ground. The walk towards like Michigan was scenic, the beaches were clean. I would go back again and highly recommend it.
