  • As you can see we had a blast! And you can too if you go to Straits State Park! The bathrooms are clean, and the views of the bridge are clear as a bell! Most camp sites you might pick are spacious and nice to stay at. I've never had a problem with the camping neighbors, so that's a go too!! HAPPY CAMPING!
  • Great State park right on Lake Michigan with great views of the Mighty Mackinaw bridge. Clean showers and wash rooms. Helpful camp hosts that post local events in nearby St. Ignace. Definitely one of our favorites. Try to reserve a spot on the two loops by the lake. The third is up a giant hill that has no views. Happy camping!
