A great state campground with electric service sites and some nice secluded, rustic sites. The bathroom and shower facilities are clean and there are great events for kids and families ever weekend.

I come a couple times a year every summer for the past 24 years. Nice park, an okay beach, a fun lake to fish and catch wild life. Good hiking trails.

This is a nice and clean campground. Each lot is reasonably priced and they have a fire pit too. The north end of the camp ground is a little quieter and family oriented. There is a little store in case you forgot something. The water is just okay. Definitely not a beach but okay for the campground.

This is just about fifteen minutes from home for us. We generally go there several times from spring to fall, take a picnic lunch, hike the woodland trails some, and maybe go in for a swim. The little lake swimming area is very family friendly and conducive to relaxed wading and swimming. It would probably take at least a couple... More

Camping, swimming, kayaking, hiking, bike riding! My favorite place to camp...one of many Michigan campgrounds where you can camp directly on the water! 190 is my favorite spot! Halloween weekends are fun for all! We have been going for 15 years!

We arrived after dark and the office was closed they have a phone to check in on but it was not working. Since I had a reservation we headed to our site. Their sanitation station... More

Nice, clean, and quiet! I would take my kids here anytime!! The bathrooms were well taken care of. There is a nice concession stand where you can buy snacks and drinks. The beach area was also very well taken care of, very clean.

This is a nice campground. We go here often because it's close to home and convenient for us. It has two sections, North and South, it is best to camp in the South section because you are closer to the beach and the sites are bigger. They really cram you into the North section. We tend to camp during the... More
