We decided to check out the Leelanau State Park at the last minute. We drove up to the location address which is where the campgrounds and lighthouse are. Unless you pay for the lighthouse entrance there isn't much to see at that location but we did go back a few miles and hiked down to the beach which was beautiful... More

Wonderful park!!! Rustic camping, rocky shoreline and beautiful sunsets!!! We first stayed here 28 years ago and can't believe the changes in the shoreline over the years. Great for hiking along the shore or just getting your feet wet and watching the waves roll in!!!

We enjoyed these hiking trails with beautiful trees and nice lookout to Lake Michigan. Some up and down for a good workout. The trails were wider allowing side-by-side walking and talking. Took our daughter's dog. Six foot leash required. Had a great time! If we lived near here this would likely be our favorite trail to hike.

Great park with lots of history and great views. Lighthouse & history lovers will enjoy the tour and museum. If those don't interest you, the gardens and beautiful old trees are definitely worth the trip.

I spent one night here this week and can't rave enough about the staff (talking about you, Rachael) who found a spot for me to tent camp even though the park was full. Could not believe my luck: got site #1 (Campground Host site) with free firewood and a special S'mores and Meteors program that night in the park! Had... More

This is a beautiful park if you are good with rustic camping. Still is a good place for a lighthouse visit and day visit even if you're not into rustic. This is a 2 part park and the area further from the point of peninsula has a Lake Michigan beach.

We hiked the state park hiking trail, which is about 4 miles south of the State Park. As you are going north, watch for the signs, and turn left just after the airport on 201. We did this trail last fall, and there were no bugs. This time, there were many many bugs. We did part of the trail to... More

Beautiful, clean park. Several trails down to the water's edge and the further you walk, the more private it becomes as many visitors don't walk too far. I am a photographer and rode there to get some shots and boy was it worth the time. Photo opportunities abound. Don't miss this when you are in the area, worth every penny... More

Our family has done lots of camping since our kids have been little. Now they are 12 and 15. Beautiful campground but tough for campers, we have a 30 foot travel trailer. We had site 42 and after reading the other review on site 42 while on the way there, was a little scared. We were fine, able to pull... More
