  • I would 100% recommend this park. We camped here at site 5 in a tent and had an amazing stay. Many sites were level, but completely covered in sand so be mindful of that when setting up. Also, big rigs should carefully consider their site as many are quite tight. The lakefront side is probably better for bigger rigs. The hosts were super nice and offered free coffee and donuts in the morning. Multiple piers to walk out on and kayak/paddle board rentals were available. The bathhouse was very clean with individual shower rooms.
  • Beautiful park. Had some issues with the water while we were there but we would stay again. Beautiful sunsets. Very windy and cool Michigan fall days.
