There are lots of advantages to this campground -most sites have big trees and some are along a forest. It's across the street from the Interlochen Music School, so you can often hear music or concerts on summer weekends. There are a couple trails to walk (not really strenuous enough to call them a hike), and an active ranger program for kids. One section of the park can get loud and sometimes rowdy during the summertime weekends. The other smaller section is quieter for those who prefer that. The only caveat to this park is that the lake regularly has swimmer's itch. If you're quick and through in your toweling off, it can be ok, but we've never been here without getting it. Stick to the fishing, kayaking and camping rather than swimming!
