This park has it together! Fresh water fill at the sanitation station, provided dumping hose and hand sanitizer are a pleasant surprise! sites are wooded in pines with a short walk opening to a beautiful beach on Lake Michigan. They do pack in them in pretty tight tho

I had read reviews prior to going camping at Hoffmaster telling about how strict the staff were there, insisting that camping groups be quiet and under control, so I was looking forward to a quiet, pleasant evening. But our campsite, which was near the restrooms, became a gathering place for hoards of children on bikes, who were doing stunts and... More

The campground is clean and nicely kept. The trail to the lake is pretty long in deep sand which could be difficult for some with babies or small children and especially any physically handicapped ones that might be in a wheel chair to have to get to the lake. We had the same experience with the Ranger and her 2... More

Spring time bring Trilliums to the forest floor. Many groomed trails allow for exploring and discovery (watch for poison ivy). The beach and sand dunes are always fun, too.

Worst campground I have ever been too in all my life never going back. Camp sites to close, lights out at 11, no alcohol. DNR SUPER STRICT. Apparently they were spying on our campsite which seems like harassment to me and creepy to say the least. All in all 7 of us got tickets and they threatened to trespass us... More

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Park was beautiful, lots of trails, well kept, clean. Some areas of campground are hard to maneuver a camper through.

This is a great state park for families. It has wonderful trails to walk and great sand dunes to climb! Walking along the shore is beautiful and great for taking pictures. The beach is very nice and I look forward to coming back.

I' m from Ohio and stay at several state parks. Hoffmaster not so much different from Ohio State Parks. One big difference, one bathhouse for the whole park....but ya no what? The Cleanest of all parks I've ever Been too. Hats off to the cleaning crew. Draw back, our first night we were sitting around the fire about 11:30pm just... More

Very nice beach, gorgeous walk through the woods to get there. It was pretty crowded, but still plenty of room to sit comfortably.

We camped Monday thru Friday and found the campground along the rest of the park to be very clean. Bathrooms and grounds were well maintained. Plenty of beach for the weekday crowds. In the event you want to get away, Muskegon, Grand Haven, and many smaller communities are within a 15 minute drive. My only complaint is the lack of... More
