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

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

We were very disappointed here. We came to view the lighthouse and had to pay a $9 entrance fee and then an additional fee of $4 each adult to get into the lighthouse. We had no problem with the fee for the lighthouse but, we had no interest in doing any other activities. Seems unfair to those folks who only... More

This is how I remembered camping as a kid. Rustic and very quiet. There's a small park for kids and a lighthouse you can go into for a small fee. You have to drive to the walking trails and there is no beach at this campsite. Quiet and friendly rangers offer coffee and baked goods two days a week. A... More

The camping here was wonderful. Quiet, peaceful and private if you can pick a good spot. It's rustic - vault toilets and no showers - but that's a small price to pay for being lulled to sleep by the sound of Lake Michigan.

The campground is located on the very northwest tip of the lower peninsula of Michigan and next to the Grand Traverse Light House and museum. The campsites are near the water and rocky beach. It is a quiet, primitive campground with clean pit toilets, and water must be carried to your site. Firewood is available from the camp staff. Many... More

Northporte and Leelanau State park are really nice, but If you go in the Fall the Weekends might be the tine to go. We went in Sept and most things are only open 3 days a week. So if you like to be hopping then go in the Summer, Peaceful and Quiet go in the Fall. We did like the... More
