This park needs work and even they agree. They have signs up stating that they just received some funds to do much need repair work. The place is great in the fall when no one is there but in the summer it must be a gong show. The sites are right on top of one another and it's all R.V.s... More

We camped here two nights over the Labor Day weekend. The location was great and very pretty. Lots of tall trees, trails through the woods, clean beach. We visited the lighthouse (3 miles north) and biked into Rogers City (5 miles south). FYI the bikes for rental are all tandem. We would definitely go back here although maybe not on... More

We pulled in at 7:00 p.m. on Friday with a strong, yearning desire to rest and relax. Registration upon entering the park went smooth and easy with overjoyed, friendly smiles and waves. As we entered the campground, we were a bit disappointed to see there wasn't much separation from neighboring sites. I picked site # 8 when registering on line... More

We arrived July 6 to avoid congestion. Our family of 6 had a really enjoyable 10 day experience in our pop up camper. If you are familiar with State Park camping this Park is a mark above. Restrooms - very clean, HOT showers, it's not a large park so they only have 2 showers on the side we stayed, not... More

This was a lovely state park. We enjoyed very much all the trees, and the easy beach access. There are wonderful paved bike/walking paths to take you into town, to a lighthouse, or just to enjoy a ride/walk. We did have a couple of areas on the path that we ran into a huge black fly problem, but not in... More

We camped here in our fifth wheel for 4th of July weekend. Though many sites were closely packed together, our site #121 was spacious and private. The hiking and bike trails were great. The beach was beautiful! Though the water was cold, the kids still enjoyed playing on rafts, in the sand, and climbing the dunes! Amazing sunsets too!

A few years ago we drove past the entrance to Hoeft State park but didn't have time to swing in and check it out. I asked around and oddly no one had heard of it, kept asking if I meant Hoffmaster on Lake Michigan. Nope, Hoeft. Well what a lovely secret Hoeft State park is. We had a wonderful time... More

Traveled to a lot of parks and you never can get enough of parks that call you closer to nature. Birds of all types fly through the trees calling to you. You may see a deer, squirrels, possum, fox or bear. What a lovely way to experience nature in all it's glory. Walk the trails and discover the purity of... More

What a beautiful park. So much room to go hiking and swimming. The beaches are not croweded at all. Love all of the snowmobile trails that are open to bicycles in the summer. Best kept secret in northeast lower michigan.

I have been camping at this campground for about 9 years. Every year that I come here I don't want to leave. This is what a camp ground is supposed to be like. Lots of trees, beautiful beach and no big city distractions. There is so much to do swimming, biking and hiking if you get bored then you shouldn't... More
