  • Young State Park is one of the most beautiful State Parks we have ever camped in. The campsites are well cared for. One of our favorite activities is to walk to the Camp Store about 8 pm for some delicious ice cream and then walk to the beach to watch the sun set across the lake. The sunsets are amazing! Bathrooms are kept clean as well. Very family-friendly. If you are looking for more to do, the area has lots of activities for which there is information in the Ranger office as well as in Boyne City. People in town are also helpful and friendly. And the Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings... WOW!
