Lovely state park on Lake Michigan. Camping, swimming, hiking, cross country skiing, walking on the beach, gathering rocks. Beautiful!
We spent a beautiful sunny October afternoon at the beach at Fisherman's Island St Park. If you are looking for a natural unspoiled beach this is for you. It has a long stretch of beach that we shared with only a few others. The campground is primitive but sites are fairly private.
If we were camping -- this is the place! Lots of privacy -- have to go by a cement plant to get to the entrance. But once you drive for a bit you can find a nice spot.
I am in love with this place!! So quiet and peaceful. Beautiful scenery. Crystal clear water in Lake Michigan. We brought our kayaks and snorkel gear to explore and it was great! The campsites are spacious and far enough apart that you don't hear the people around you. Sleeping and waking up to the sound of the waves was so... More
This was my first choice on a list of different place to camp in Michigan. I do want to make a warning though: THIS IS A VERY RUSTIC CAMPGROUND!! ....that means the toilets are just pit toilets (no running water at all), and the only way to get your water is to either bring it with you or bring receptacles...

Beautiful little park set wayyy back out. If you follow the road all the way back, it ends at a nice little picnic area with a stream and bridge to trail to walk, or paths to the beach area. If you're interested in rocks, lots of variety on the beach, but we also picked up several shards of broken glass,... More
Don't let the cement plant next to the park put you off. From inside the park you won't even know it is there. The park has a number of rustic camp sites right on the water which are left quite natural. From the first camp sites you can enjoy a loooong walk along the shore culminating at Fishermans Island (which,... More
I have been coming to this campground since I was a child and now make it a yearly trip with my husband and some friends. Campsites are nicely spaced and they offer beautiful campsites right on the lake. There is a nice family swimming area as well as a beautiful hiking trail. The shoreline is breathtaking and the overall scenery... More
Getting there is ugly as sin, because the access road goes past a cement factory that makes the landscape white as death itself. But this trip thru purghatory is worth it, because the park has a mile or two of lovely Lake Michigan shoreline and hatrdwood forest, with untrammeled hiking and snowshoe trails that lead at the south end to...

My husband & I and our little boy have been coming here to camp since 2008 and we absolutely love it here, we usually stay about 14 days. The sunsets are gorgeous. We even found deer tracks on the beach down by the swimming area at the south end of campground. It can be a bit rocky in and out... More
