  • Great State Park! The sites are well spaced for a State Park, the facilities are clean, and the staff has always been helpful.

Don’t miss the Gillette Nature Center in the day-use side of the park, especially if you have little ones. There are some nice hiking trails through the dunes there also.
  • Awesome state park on lake Michigan! We had a site in the 200 loop, it was quiet and secluded. The shower and restrooms are really nice. A half mile walk of takes you to the campers beach with a sizeable dune, and the little black creek runs out through the beach into the lake.
