“On Lake Huron”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

What a park! Our site was on the outer rim. Very private. The beach was clean and pet friendly. Camp staff was very friendly. There is a truck that drives through the park selling wood by the rack for $25 a rack. Good deal if one is staying for a week. You can by small bundles from the machine. Restrooms are very clean. The only draw back would be the four showers in the park. They supply the sewer hose at the sanitation station so I didn't have to mess with my own. We'll be back next year!

Years ago we found a state park we loved and returned year after year. After purchasing a camper we decided to try other campgrounds. I am so glad we did. There were many things we liked about the park; the pet friendly beach, many great wooded sites to pick from, beautiful beach and nice trails to name a few.
The park staff were friendly and did a great job of monitoring the campground to make sure all the rules were followed. We arrived late and found it a nice touch that they had our name and site number posted in the window of the ranger station. We have already decided on our next visit to this campground.

We visit this State Park at least a couple of times each week. The beach is beautiful and the view outstanding! The park is always clean - even in the winter. We love to run or walk on the beach. The cabins that rent out are rustic- our favorite is by the picnic area.

We were here last Sunday night. Our campsite was clean and right on the beach. We would definitely come back. Short walk to the cute town of Harrisville. The other campers we met were friendly. We camp in a 30 ft. motorhome and had no problems getting in or out.

We stayed on a beach access spot, it was beautiful! Lake access spots and outer rim spots offer a bit more privacy, the middle spots are more open to the adjacent lots but offer easy access for camper trailers. There are 2 bathroom buildings, older, but they kept them pretty clean. I think they cleaned them 2 times a day. The entire park was full when we went so the bathrooms got a lot of traffic. One downside is that there are only 4 showers for the whole park. We had to wait a couple of times but the longest wait for a 4 night stay was about 45 minutes. It was very pretty - great sunrises! Staff is friendly, and they have a vendor for wood that was pretty reasonable. They even have a "trial" dog beach area. It's not on any of the current maps because it's on a trial basis. If you take your dog, PLEASE keep your dog on a leash at all times (we took a 30' lead so he could run in the water) and pick up the poo - this is definiately something that would be a GREAT permanent addition to the park. This access is located down by the dog walk area on the North side of the park. Overall, we would definately recommend the campground and are planning on going back again in the future.

Nice campground. Easy to get to beach right off campground. There's also a day use area. Rangers were very friendly. Kids programs were cute. Nice ice cream shop just out entrance. Bathrooms need updating. No family showers like some other state parks.

This is a family favorite year after year. The beach is clean and well maintained. Bathrooms are clean with room for changing clothes. The water in Lake Huron is cold but the kids love it! This is our 8th year returning to enjoy the beach.
