This review is primarily for the cg. I wouldn't call this wilderness camping as you can see dozens of other campers from your site, but it is clean, very family friendly and relatively quiet at night. Pay attention to where your site is located- mine was B2 (tent only)- turned out to back up to the main park road which... More

Hoffmaster has beauty and a beach that is fairly accessible for most people regardless of ability or fitness level.

That about says it. There are miles of sand beach when you link this park with North Ottawa Dunes Park (Ottawa County Park) to the south. The campground, like most Michigan State Parks, offers great amenities and location. Shower/Bathrooms placed well throughout centered in "Clusters of nicely groomed, canopied campsites, either modern or primitive. The sunsets over Lake Michigan are... More

This was our first stay in a Michigan State Park and our first trip to the area, and we stayed in a smallish camper with 2 young kids. The campsites vary quite a bit- we had room to the left and right but were crammed up right against the people behind us. Other sites back up to woods or water... More

Great state park, modern & clean restrooms/showers, beautiful beach, nice trails, informative nature center, excellent sites with heavy/sturdy tables, fire rings, and location is very convenient to Grand Haven. We go every year and alternate between this park and Muskegon State Park (north side of Muskegon). Both are great and very affordable!

We parked at the picnic area, and we're able to follow the well marked trails through an enchanting old growth forest. My wife wished she had worn her hiking shoes, but was able to traverse the paths easily enough in her sandals. We most recently visited on a sunny day, and the sunlight beaming through the tree canopy created many... More

gorgeous state park. Nice wooded sites, but stairs down to beach open up to sun and Lake Michigan. Make reservations early and view sites prior to stay on DNR website.

Looking for a break from crowded beaches? Than this is the Lake Michigan experience for you. After a lovely wooded walk you are treated to a beautiful beach. Don't miss climbing the stairs for some unique dune views and visit the nature center to see just how these dunes were formed. Lots of wooded campsites with several trails running through... More

My wife and I always look forward to going here. This is where I proposed to her. Clean beach, beautiful views, and well maintained facilities. Not sure why people are always so excited for the busy beach at Grand Haven when they can drive a little farther north and find this beautiful place.

I love Hoffmaster. The trails are so quiet and beautifully shaded. Lovely way to spend part of the day. Beaches are much less crowded than other places, and very clean. With lake levels high like they are right now, a lot of the sand is covered, but beaches still nice. We have also skied in the winter, which is challenging,... More
