We spent 2-nights here the last weekend in June. We were looking for some place within an hour of Sleeping Bear Dunes, reserve-able in advance, preferably with rustic camping and on Lake Michigan. This fit the bill. The plus sides are there are lots of beautiful trees in the campground and it has a lovely, peaceful feel. The lighthouse is... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a couple of days recently and we had a great trip. The park was clean and not overly crowded. There is no electrical hookups or showers, so if you are looking for those don't stay here. They do have vault restrooms, which were surprisingly well kept and clean. I usually hate vault restrooms... More

I am not an avid camper or so but I have been to few of these. This was the best so far. At the tip of Michigan, we had Cedar cabin in the park, which was nicely done for us. I could see the Lakeshore from there and HAD to go for a walk early in the morning to breathe... More

We hiked to the lookout and then down to the water. Dunes are amazing. We were the only people there. Kids had a blast looking for petosky stones, playing in the sand dunes, and hiking in the woods. A great place to get outside with the family.

My wife and I drove out to the lighthouse only to find that we had to pay to see it. I didn't really think it was worth the $10 for a few minutes of the lighthouse. Kind of expensive considering it's only $13 to camp overnight there. Plus, there was no ranger at the gate to tell us anything. The... More

Very nice visit and view. Park is a very nice rustic area. Light House was nice. We had a very nice day viewing the Bay Area. Worth the time to just drive out and take in the scenery.

We were recommended to head up to Leelanau to experience the snowshoe trails of the state park. Little did we know that the trails were not connected with viewing the lighthouse. We took a quick detour and explored the surrounding area of the lighthouse. The brisk, windy weather did not allow us to venture for long by the lighthouse, so... More

This is a beautiful, rustic campground! Great hiking trails are just south of the lighthouse and campground. The lighthouse is unique and hosts a great little museum. Natural beauty all around!

We stayed at the Leelanau State Park this past summer. We found the campground to be clean and well run, with pit toilet facilities, no showers. The surrounding countryside was charming. We picnicked in a cherry orchard, went for scenic bike rides down deserted back roads, stopped at many small, local shops to buy things, and went home loaded with... More
