We've come here for the last two years and plan on making it an every summer tradition. It's so quiet and the sites are nice and spread out. I recommend the south campground because the beach is sandier and the sites are more private and there's no view of the cement factory from the beach on that end.

We drove to the end of the park to the beach/picnic area and it was an interesting experience. The beach was not quite what we expected, it was very grassy, not just an expanse of sand to set up our chairs. But we made the best of it and had a great time! The water was warm, the breeze cool...

This is an awesome campground! Our site was large, private and right on the beach of Lake Michigan! The facilities are limited but clean. We are definitely going back!

I've driven through this wonderful park three times. In October 2013 my mom and I stopped by on our way to an art event. My brother had been raving about the place for years, so we decided to check it out. I almost turned around when the road we were on brought us to the industrial towers of a cement-making... More

I have had the opportunity to camp here many times and is one of my favorites! This past fourth of July we took our boat out and wanted to visit the island for just a day picnic on the water. Some of the rocks were as big as my boat! Excercise caution coming into the park by water and approach... More

After years of traveling to Charlevoix, this was our first trip to this park. We paid the entrance fee, got a map and drove thru the park. My octogenarion dad and stopped at a "daily use" beach, where we picked up a few Petoskey stones. Beach was pretty and nearly deserted. Then I drove to the beach at the dead... More

Too bad not pet friendly. Basic beach. Rocky shoreline but otherwise clean sand. Large factory obstructs panoramic view of our beautiful lake. Fun to watch boats enter the lake from the channel.

We loved spending the afternoon exploring the beaches and water at Fisherman's Island. It was almost deserted when we were there so that made it even more relaxing and peaceful. We found some beautiful rocks (and a few golf balls). I would definitely go back!

A couple weeks ago we had a site right on Lake michigan for a week. The only downfall to this state park is no showers. Other than that though, it's a very good place for camping, the sites offer privacy from other campers, very quiet and peaceful. Found many petoskey and charleviox stones combing the beach. And i really enjoyed... More

Spent the morning enjoying the beach, picking up petoskey stones, roaming the Trillium blanketed woods and searching for morel mushrooms. There were no crowds, plenty of parking and a whole lot of beauty.
