A peaceful, quiet stay on Lake Michigan. There are four campground loops. We stayed in a Violet Loop campsite, which seemed to be mostly available on a first serve basis (probably because it is farthest from the beach). We arrived at 8:00 pm on a Saturday night, really hoping for a site. There were none available in the other three loops; Oak, Orchid and Hemlock, were all full. ( We drove through each!) Fortunately, Violet loop had about six available! All sites are spacious, have a picnic table, fire ring with grill and a bear pole (for hanging food to keep from the bears). The fee of $27.00 for lodging with a dog sure beats $200 plus at a motel. Atmosphere: family friendly.
We woke up on our own at four a.m. and heard owls calling to each other. We also saw many, many stars, including the Milky Way, due to no light pollution.
Dyrt’s map helped us find paths to the beach even though we didn’t have service. That was key to our enjoyment! Make sure to get that Pro feature. It’s worth it.
