We stopped here on our way around Leelanau Peninsula, and walked around the lighthouse and out onto the shoreline. The views were incredible, and it is a beautiful section of Lake Michigan. All of the campers seemed pretty happy with the accommodations as well.

Although we did not stady here, we did drive and look at campsites and layout. Its nicely laid out. A mix of shade and sun. If you want closest to water, it seems those sites are mostly NON shaded. If you dont mind a little walk, their are some excellent shaded sites. We walked to the litehouse, then down to... More

We have camped here for a week the past two summers. A nice, quiet, rustic campground right on Lake Michigan. Drinkable water available (although not the best tasting), vault toilets (that are well maintained). Water front is not sandy for swimming but give beautiful views from camp. Firewood and ice available at ranger station. Playground (not great) for kids. Lighthouse... More

Beautiful park for camping, picnicking or just spending the day touring the lighthouse and grounds. There are some hiking trails that take you through the woods toward the lake. (Not sure if there is swimming.) State Park entrance fee required. You can tour the lighthouse and even climb the tour. It is about 45 mins to 1 hour north of... More

Nice place to visit. Only 4.00 to enter lighthouse. The grounds and buildings are well maintained right on the shoreline of Lake Michigan

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
