Best Sunset EVER!

Stopped in to visit my kids it was very big camp site, close to restroom. Had a nice fire pit you could cook over if you brought a large grate. Most beautiful sunset.

We chose Orchard Beach because it was far enough away from our home yet not too far. The park was nice, and our lot was huge (we just had a tent). The bathrooms are outdated but functional. We stayed at Site #122 and had a view of the lake from our site, which is truly wonderful! The trails across the... More

We chose Orchard Beach sight unseen and selected one of the few new full service campsites since, having just spent a week using our fresh water tank, we thought a little more creature comforts would be nice. All other sites are electric only. Hindsight being 20/20 we would have selected a site closer to the lake, because those sights have... More

The views from Orchard Beach State Park were breath taking. The campground was immaculate with clean facilities. Beautiful trails along with nice stairway to the beach.

We decided to visit again since they had upgraded the electrical in the park. Had an excellent campsite on the far end of the loop that we could see Lake Michigan from. Beautiful view!!! Small beach area, but still enough room to lay out a blanket and enjoy yourself!! The older 'south' shower house was the only one open, the... More

This park is a great campground. The view of the lake on top of the bluff from the mini cabin is amazing. The beach is small but there is a very nice one nearby

While its been a few years since I have been here during the summer to enjoy the swimming we do make it out in the fall during the leaf color change and the sandy beaches are wonderful. Recently on New Years Eve I was able to enjoy the final sun set on 2014 while enjoying the view over the beach... More

After arriving for the first night I witnessed one of the best sunsets I have ever seen on Lake Michigan. The campground is just steps away from the beach, but here are a few things I didn't care too much for: The actual beach area is somewhat small (or maybe it was because the lake levels are significantly higher this...

This beach is quiet and less packed than most beaches. We love to walk here in the spring and fall when it is not "peak" season.

Stayed here on our last night. Great site no 43 gave us the most magnificent view of Michigan. The road was not really a problem and the staff were great.
