We came to p)u some friends visiting in the area. The CG is old (established in 1921. Too small for 40/45 MHs. Location is great on Black Lake but we couldn't fit. Also hard to level out.

Worn and tired
Sep 2018 • Couples
We stay in a lot of state parks across the USA. Michigan at one time had some of the best. I am sad to report that is no longer true, We reserved a lake front site. On arrival we checked in on the yellow phone which is the states version of customer service. On arriving at the site we found it occupied. The lady lied to us and told us the park people told her to set up there. We returned to the yellow phone and tripped across a park worker who got us on another site away from the lake, It turned out for the best. The lake sites are in bad condition and very small. Looks more like a private campground than a State park, The site we were assigned was still worn and poorly laid out but it was clean and larger. We do not recommend this park.

Nice, quiet park
Aug 2018 • Family
We enjoyed our stay at this park. The campsites were roomy, ours was next to the bathhouse so extra large. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned daily and were always clean. The toilets can be a bit tricky to flush but nothing difficult:) We rented kayaks and a canoe for enjoying the lake and did some fishing. The swimming area was nice, we didn’t use it but many people were there. We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend

Great state park
Aug 2018 • Friends
This is a nice state park on Black Lake. Some of the sites are right on the shoreline ( these are reserved quickly, make them in January). There are showers , and modern bathrooms in the main part (not near shoreline campsites, ...short walk). Campground is relatively quiet. Camphosts have activities for kids. Boat launch right near campground.

Only staying for the night
Jul 2018 • Family
We have a reservation for 5 nights and I’m leaving after only 1 night. Went to use restrooms and not one toilet had been flushed.. someone was showering and had there dog in the shower with them.. you could hear it barking from outside the door.. the site I was on had broken glass and thank god I found it before I let my 3 dogs out.. also site is not what was pictured on campground website.. Sites are very small and cramped.. electrical box is nowhere near where my RV is parked and some sites have electrical cords running across the road.. everyone is on top of each other like sardines.. if you like having very close neighbors and dirty restrooms then this is the place for you..

Beautiful, Clean with Great Hosts and Staff
Jun 2018 • Family
We loved our time at the park. Stayed on the water for Father's Day weekend. The hosts are great...had neat activities for the kids. Went for coffee and donuts on Sunday morning and the hosts also were great to chat with and gave lots of info on the area and history of the park. This is the 2nd state park (after Mackinac Island) in Michigan. Water is great and does not get deep until a ways out. Water is rocky in front of site so bring water shoes. Kids loved catching crayfish in the rocks. Gets sandier out further and is very shallow for a long way out. Kayaks are great on here, if you have and beautiful sunsets.

Four day get away

What a beautiful and quiet setting. We camped on site 16 right beside Black Lake. The sunsets we're great and the peacefulness was perfect. It's a very clean campground and very nice clean bathroom and showers. We will go back...

Beautiful Black Lake
Jun 2018 • Family
Enjoy beautiful, clean Black Lake at this State Park. Camping, boat launch, etc. are available. Bring your camera, because at the end of a busy day of sun and water, you will be able to take in the amazing sunsets.
