We decided about a month ago to join friends who’d made reservations at the campground several months ago. It‘s no wonder why the campground fills up fast! Our friends‘ site was on the end of a row with a full lakeshore view with the Mackinaw Bridge in the background. We backed up to their site…not so beautiful. Our site was a tight squeeze for our camper (with the slides out, there wasn‘t room to extend our awning). But, we were happy to have a spot near them. There are fire pits along the lakeshore for anyone to claim. Since many sites are full-hookup, there aren‘t many comfort stations. The campground rents bikes and offers free shuttle service to the ferries. It’s a short drive to shopping. Sites are assigned by the campground…a bummer for those of us who like the hunt for the perfect site. Overall, we were able to extend our stay by a day just to sit by the water.
The campground is on Silver Lake and offers a beach and playground for the kids. Full of tall trees for shade and perfect for a hammock beside Silver Lake. There are pavillons for a group to gather, a boat ramp and volleyball court. The camping spaces are close…some are paved. Beautiful view of the dunes. Tight for large campers…better for pop-ups, hybrids and tents.
Situatated across the parking lot from Lake Michigan. The beach is beautiful with crystal clear water and plenty of room to play! The campsites are essentially a parking lot in the sand. they are short and crowded. if you like being near the beach, this might be your place. As a glamper, I’d rather camp somewhere else and just come here for the beach.
Right in the heart of Silver Lake, this campground is the walking distance or a short drive to shopping, food and fun! the campground itself has a pool and game room for the the family. A popular “duners” destination, the campground was a bit crowded and busy if you’re looking for a quiet getaway.
