One of our favorite state parks, the lake is like the carribean beautiful aqua blue.. Well shaded park nice sites and friendly service. With plenty of natural things to see within proximity. If your into geo-caching there are plenty of these hidden all around the area.

Great location (hour from Gaylord, Alpena, Cheboygan and little over an hour to Mackinac City/Island). Great trails, water is clean, people are awesome and can't beat the blueberry picking! Nice size lake for skiing or tubing. The campgrounds are being remodeled currently and updated. Kids will love this place for campling, beach is perfect. Short hike thru the woods is... More

This is a great quiet campground on a very clear lake. It was too cold for me, but the kids loved it. The bathrooms were kept very clean, but they do close for an extended time in the afternoon and you have to use the ones on the other loop or wait. Small price to pay for clean facilities. The...

This is our 3rd year going to the campground. we love it. staff is awesome, guests are awesome, lake is awesome. We haven't had any trouble with too many boats or jet skis. We tend to spend the days on the lake or the beach and the evenings around the campfire. Kids love to bike throughout the campground. Highly recommend!

Beautiful State Park! We had a nice stay at the campground. There were great fireworks over the lake on the 4th of July. The lake is great for swimming and boating, but not the best for fishing. There is great hiking in the area, just be sure to have a map, the trail markings can be a little deceiving. As... More

we asolutely rated this a 5 star, except for ticks. we came home with our dogs covered in ticks. took about a week to get rid of all of them. the park is awesome, almost worth the discomfort. i spent a lot of time walking through the woods and ended up with a rash. would advise wearing protection. still, had...

I went camping there last Summer 2011! The Lake is simply AMAZING! It's as teal as the pictures show you and you can see all the way to the bottom of the Lake which was very scary when diving off a boat and you can see down (clearly) 60ft.. LOL. The campgrounds were so clean, the bathrooms, the showers, the... More

My family has been coming to Clear Lake for a long time. My husband and I know go here every year for a week in August with our kids. It is by far our favorite State Park and we've been to many. It is definitely in the middle of nowhere and just to get to a supermarket takes about 15-20... More
