Escaped the ultra dog-days of Illinois summer 2012 to enjoy mid 80's during the day & 60's in the evening with a cool lake breeze. Great beach to take your dog just one mile north.

Just had me a 6 night stay and loved it. Bathrooms are old but the buildings add character to the park. Great place for kids. Tons of things todo in downtown manistee and then you have the little river casino. ( yes I cleaned up at the casino BLACKJACK!!) The beach is kind of a pain to get down to if you have alot of beach gear but there is 4 beautiful large beaches within mins of the park , all are free to the public. I am looking forward to my next stay at orchard beach

This campground is located on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. It provides a beautiful view of Lake Michigan, nice camping slots, with electricity. The road around the campground is paved. There are large trees for great shade and fire rings for campfires. There are stairs to walk down the the water and walk on the beach. It a beautiful park! It's close to the town of Manistee, Michigan which is a neat town on the National Historic Registry. Manistee has a beautiful downtown area and the main street backs up to a waterway that even has a drawbridge for ships to go through town. It's a unique place and Orchard Beach is a great place to stay. I recommend spending a few days in this area.

This campground sits upon a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. From our campsite, we could sit around the fire and see the waves rolling in. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous.

Nice shaded campsites. Steps to the lake and mostly grassy spots. Close to town so you could ride bikes back downtown to check out beautiful main street!
