Quite a wonderful little state park off the beaten path. The camp hosts could not have been nicer to our group. The facilities where very modern for a state park. Wonderful stay!

If you are anywhere on the peninsula and want a great camping spot. Harstine Island has it. This park has many boat spots and camp spots too. Clean facilities, bathrooms and showers. Summer time has a camp host.
