We stayed at the Presque Isle campground. The sites are fairly open (typical for Michigan), but this campground has a little more space between sites than most. the Site 10 offered some privacy and a very short walk to a lake view. It is a rustic campground, pit toilets and no showers. Great sunset views are @ a 50' walk... More

Pristine forests and medium difficulty of hike to the tower. Definitely worth going to the tower, especially to see the fall colors.

We truly enjoyed this beautiful park and spent the greater part of our trip home discussing what we wanted to do next time we go.

Trails are well marked and well maintained. Trails can be difficult for some with many roots and rocks, but the scenery is well worth any hike.

If you want to enjoy your visit to Porcupine Mountains State Park you have to come prepared. Have clothes for hot and cold weather no matter what the forecast says, and always bring rain gear. Waterproof hiking boots are an excellent idea because even moderate rain will change some trails into an ankle deep mud holes. The trails are beautiful,... More

This place was so cool! The 1/2 mile hike in with too much stuff was crazy though. Now that I know the yurt has all the cooking utensils one would need for a weekend in the wilderness, I can plan my next trip better. The yurt is on top of a large hill. You must first cross a stream by... More

We spent a very relaxing day enjoying this beautiful state park. $9.00 per car is well worth spending for everything you see and can do when visiting. When you go, be advised they is little or no cell phone service and very limited services such as gas stations or restaurants. Be sure to visit the Visitors Center. They have lots... More
