I rate it a 3 because the park ranger and the host were very friendly and the group camp site was really big. The other two stars are because of this one dude who works right under the park ranger. We had the group camp area and it was actually very nice and roomy. We thought we had the place all to ourselves. It wasn't until about 11 pm which I get that people shouldn't be making noises, playing music, or laughing. Whatever... Anyway, he approached our spot with his little flashlight pointing at our faces. That was kind of rude! Also, the park ranger came the next morning to tell my family that the her employee felt like his life was threatened. They described me to my family saying a skinny guy w/ hair approached my employee and he felt threatened. That was not true. I don't mess with other people during COVID coming near me or me going near them. If offering food or drinks and wishing some health and safety is a threat then WTF! I'll never do that again but please don't act like I was this huge ass grizzly bear approaching you when you know we were more than 15 feet apart. Anyway, to sum this up, this campground is definitely a child type campground. There were so many kids running all over the place w/o masks and so many people were complained about including my group for being loud. Wake up people!!! It's the freaking outdoors. Sorry if the trees echoes our voices and you have a delicate ass ear. We didn't camp in a HOA for Pete's sake. For my fellow youngins, party goers, and people who generally just want to have fun with your friends and family this IS not the PLACE! Someone even called 911 on a camper for making noise. So many complaints against people and we weren't bothering anybody and I hope you find this to be useful if you plan on playing music, Ukelele/guitar or laughing w/ your family or friends. The KARENS and KENS are very prevalent there. We stayed one last night but felt disgusted to be there. Also the water is polluted and stinky. The bathrooms are clean and you have to pay to shower. Final warning: Go somewhere else if you plan on enjoying yourself better. The campground has some weird open spots to put your tent w/ little to no privacy. Parking sucks and your dog will get fleas and ticks. Otherwise, be prepared to face the Karens and Kens. They are lurking and ready to report. The park ranger and the host again are super sweet and friendly. Party camping scale: * = Seek elsewhere or camp in your backyard lol. I describe it as the HOA of camping. Safe but you can't change the drapes w/o getting approval from the board if you catch my drift.

Although small (under 20 campsites) the park is well maintained and the short forest trails groomed. Campsites are nicely situated and offer pretty good privacy. If you are planning on canoeing or kayaking, be prepared to carry your water craft some distance down a moderate slope to the cove. An option is to put in at the Harstine Island bridge a short drive from the park. A good choice if you want an option to larger parks/campgrounds which are often congested, cramped and loud. We will return.

Out on Harstine Island, this campground is charming and enough of a secret that sites are easy to come by even in summer. Most of the sites are not available by reservation, and are tucked down the hillside near the water. There is also a large and private group campsite back in the forest. The campground is tidy and, and the clean bathrooms have flush toilets and pay showers. There are docks for boats, and a little beach that makes a great place to watch the sunset from.

This is a small, but nice State Park which offers access either by land or sea. Two nice piers for boaters and a camping area for all.
