Camping in South Haven?

We are planning a camping trip to MI towards the end of July and are looking at the SH area. I went to the southhaven.org website and noticed that there are multiple campgrounds to choose from. Can anyone tell me which one is best? We will be tent camping and would prefer to be close to the beach. I am leaning toward Van Buren but just in case they are booked up I would like to have a back up.

One more thing...We are also looking at the St. Joseph area. Are there any campgrounds near there that someone would recommend?

I agree your best bet is Van Buren State Park, but if it is full you can try Covert Park http://covertpa.ipower.com/attractions.htm

I'm not a camper but its right on the beach just south of VB State Park and the power plant.
