Awesome for Families & Big Groups / All Ages

This campground is perfect for campers of most experience and age levels.  If you are looking for rugged, wilderness / secluded camping its probably not your place but for everyone else it's a hidden gem.  

Nice spots both on the river show and across the road.  Easy water access for very little children and non-motorized boats / Kayaks, etc.  Nicely equipped playground and evening activities at the Camp Store/Office on special weekends.  

This campground has the cleanest restroom/shower facilities of any campground I have been too.  Also the staff is very friendly and helpful.

One tip, fire pits do not have grill tops attached and the pit opening is pretty wide.

Easy first camping experience or when you want to low impact camp experienc

Great site for first time campers or when you want to just get away quickly without having to take lots of equipment and supplies. Nice little camp store and pizza restaurant on site. Great playground, evening activities. Nice mix of electric hook up, R.V. and tent sites. Boat rentals, etc. Great place for a group of families to come camp together. Staff at the campground are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Amazing Hike In / Hike out camping

One of my favorite place to hike in / backpack camp. There are sites available just off of Lake Michigan and one close enough to trail heads that we have taken young children (4 years old and up) to this area. Unfortunately, and why I only give a three star rating is that in the past few years, other campers have left, trash and human excrement out in the open. Not digging a hole and burying it. The DNR people who work at this site do what they can. Unfortunately some rude campers are ruining the experience for everyone else.

Perfect for families. Great mix of rustic and electric hook up options

This campground has great amenities without feeling like urban camping. The staff and park rangers are amazing. The sites in the three loops are nicely placed so that you have foliage and space between sites but also close enough for larger groups to spread out and still feel like they are camping in a group. Good hiking trails and lake MI access. Tent pads are large and thoughtfully placed on the sites.
