We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Traverse City, then back again for 5 nights just a few days later. Beautiful views of the Mackinac Bridge! Love that there is a grocery store a bike ride away, and the shower houses were very well kept. We stayed in the upper campground both times, though would love to... More

Camping here for the first time. The campground is nice and I have to say the showers are very nice. Glad we came!

The good: This park is in a great location - right on the lake and minutes from the Mackinac Bridge and St. Ignace (small town with a grocery store, a couple restaurants and the ferry ports). But... The bad: The "beach" is bad. It's not manicured and it's not natural. Either one would be fine, but it's just badly taken... More

We stayed for 4 nights. The park was clean, affordable, and had a great view of the bridge. We stayed in the upper campground and had a nice spot. If we ever go again we would like to stay in the lower so we can take the view in all day.

Excellent spacious sites. Plenty of views of the water. Rocky, swampy beach. Near the bridge Just take a camera that zooms clearly. The view is best from the viewing park on south side at the Mackinaw City exit. Also some viewing tourist shops. Go to the one that looks like a light house. On hwy 2. Lots of steps but... More

Stayed for 9 days and it was great! Park has over 250 sites with electric and some primitive. Park has great views of the Mackinac Bridge and the shoreline! People were great and the town was fun to tour! The car show was coming in town the last weekend of June but we left on Friday that everything was starting... More

We come back to this campground each summer and have a nice site on the water that faces the bridge and the island. It's nice because we can call months in advance and get an inexpensive site, the people are friendly, and the showers are nearby and kept clean.

Chose a new destination for a family affordable vacation spot with things close by to do. We chose Straits State Park over KOA because we enjoy the quaint state park feel. This park will not disappoint! Our site in the lower campground was perfect with a gorgeous view of the Mackinaw Bridge and the Straits of Mackinaw. There are plenty... More

This is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at. It was clean and quiet with gorgeous views. The sites varied in size depending on the equipment you are using. We will be staying here again. Hopefully they will get electricity for the sites on the water but regardless it is a gorgeous state park with staff around... More
