Great State Park! Very new bath house in the last loop is great. We love to come in the "off" season after Labor Day because very few other campers, but next time we will park further from the restroom because it seems everyone wants to be close and even though most of the park is empty it's crowded around it...

It was a good experience to spend some time near the waters, it is a beautiful place and water is awesome. There are boat renting places all along the shore and they are reasonable. Take a room facing the waters and with beach access and it's fun to be in such a place on a summer day

I booked with the online tool. I picked a site that should have fit a 40 foot camper knowing that ours was 26. The site was so small our neighbors were on top of us. We read reviews that sites were small but I tried to outsmart the system and it didn't work. Worst part was site next to us... More

My son and I stopped here before leaving Traverse City to swim in the bay. The beach was pretty crowded, but we were able to change in the rest room which had toilets and changing stalls. It was pretty clean. The sand is beautiful and the water is clean, very limited vegetation and not murky at all. Beautiful day on... More

We were in the area visiting out favorite wineries from Florida. We love to camp but did not have the space in our car to bring all of our gear. While liking to rent the campground cabins, we discovered that the park has a teepee for rental. We thought how cool! It is set up on a wood deck and... More

We knew going in that this state park is located alongside a busy highway and near the airport, so rating it down because of noise would be silly. This is an urban campground -- sirens & car horns are part of the soundscape here. But the benefits outweigh the noise. We camped the weekend before July 4th... the park was... More

We would stay here again for sure and had a great time staying in the West bay mini cabin! I will list the pluses first. Clean, friendly staff, wooded sites, TART trail entrance at rear of campground for walking or biking, proximity to areas attractions, mini fridge/microwave/ shop vac in cabin. Some downsides but not a deterrent would be: beach... More

Campsites are TINY and people are packed in. Right on a busy road so lots of road noise. Very far from activities and attractions. Pirates Cove is easily within biking distance and is very nice. Quiet hours not well enforced. I had to call about loud neighbors three times before someone came to talk them.

Good location and very clean, modern facilities. Camp sites kinda close together. Sites were very sandy- to be expected in that area but lead to LOTS OF SAND in our tent! If you visit- a must do is Sleepy Bear Dunes and if you like wine- Old Mission Peninsula. Got very chilly at night- but to be expected in late... More

The sites are very close together and maneuvering can be challenging with a large travel trailer when vehicles don't pull completely off the road. Biking can be tricky for kids as cars go quite fast. The walk to the beach was worth it, Lake Michigan is beautiful.
