We loved camping here! We were so excited to explore the sleeping bear area and this is on the southern end and 40 minutes from Traverse City. You are near the Platte River which is perfect for kayaking and tubing! The campgrounds were clean and we were near a bath house that was nicely updated. There is a RR grade trail that leads to the beach but I recommend dribing up. Even after apply a ton of bug spray we felt like we were getting eaten alive on the trail.
It was easy to get reservations to this campground. We picked it because it was an hour and half from Chicago. We went for the ATV track. We took our bikes down by the pond and park. They have flush toilets and showers.
The grounds we're clean and there were bathhouses located throughout the campgrounds. The more modern bathhouses were the nicest. It was family and dog friendly with both forest sites and more open sites.
