Great campground! We like to stay in the 4 person cabin with a bathroom every time we visit. We just spent a week there and it was wonderful. Although, the weather wasn't great the camp trails, camp store, views of the bridge, and cabin layout (mini-frig, microwave, hot shower, flush toilet, queen bunk beds, heater, ceiling fan) make it a...

Efficient well thought out registration to breath taking views of Lake Huron made for a great stay despite unseasonably cool and rainy weather. The place is only 3 miles from the center of town but feels like the middle of the woods. Made for a true base camp for us while in the area.

Mill Creek Campground has over 600 camping sites, and dozens of camping cabins. It is located about 2 miles south of Mackinaw City, directly on Lake Huron. The campground is very spread out, and unless you have transportation, it can be difficult to get to some of the amenities easily. The facility is well maintained and quiet. It's only downside...

Thanks so much for staying with us! If you have trash and have to walk, most any of our staff members (on the carts in the park) are glad to help take the trash up for you. The reason we have our trash drop off centralized is because we are situated in hundreds of acres of wilderness. There is a... More

This campground was so-so. I can see that you could have a nice time if you had respectful neighbors at your campsite as the facilities were fairly clean and there was a small pool and nice playground for the kids. However, we did not have respectful neighbors and it totally ruined our time spent there. The campsites (we had #536)... More

So sorry you had that experience. I am a tent camper too and after experiencing things like this at other parks, I am adamant about making sure that inconsiderate campers are not tolerated (as you can see by other reviews by people who are angry at us for throwing them out). I personally have to endure dozens of "flame wars"... More

Just stayed here for a week. Never had been here before but decided to try it because my kids love a pool!! I have to say this is one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever been to, and I have been camping my whole life. VERY clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and you could tell they...

We came here for a family vacation and could not be happier. First off, Great registration process with about ten Windows and helpful staff. Second, EXTREMELY clean. Clean bathrooms, showers and staff work hard to keep it that way. Third, sites are awesome. Primitive sites are PRIMITIVE. But the other sites are terrific. Shoreside sites are awesome. Great views of... More

We stayed in the camping cabins right across from the park store. My first stay....didn't expect the cabins to be so nice, yet didn't know I would get stuck in the busiest location of the park. Having the store across from us made getting our morning coffee a breeze, but then having everyone sit and watch us while they ate... More

Thanks so much for staying with us. You are right! We are planning on moving those cabins across from the store so that it isn't so busy for the guests that stay in them. When they were put there that part of the park had not yet become such a hub of activity. It takes a bit of work, but... More

My wife and I decided to go on our first camping trip while she was a few months pregnant which would have been fine if we hadn't picked a cold and rainy time to go. We stayed at Mill Creek Campground at the end of October when everything was pretty much shut down for the season. It was very quiet... More

There are a ton of things to do here - hay and fire truck rides, pool, beach, arcade, bikes, etc. The camp store is large and well stocked. The campground is very wooded for a private campground which is unfortunately not the norm. The lake and bridge views were beautiful. The Starliner ferry had two shuttle stops inside the campground... More

We liked the location but... Our RV site was not near the water. We did not have any type of concrete pad. It was an extremely dusty site. When it rained, we were in a pool of muddy mess. Many sites are really packed in tight. They really have the check-in routine down to a science. But no personal service.... More
