“Memories”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Have not camped here in years. But as a kid growing up in Detroit it was a close get away with a up north feel. Lake was better when gas motors where not allowed but still a great canoe or paddle boat lake. Lots of great memories here. From the trails, beaches, and the fishing. Nothing beats listening to Ernie and chillin by the camp fire. Great camp ground!!!!

“Pretty place in the fall”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We camped here in the fall of 2011. Pretty plave especially along the lake when the colors are in peak. Average size lots for a state park and friendly staff.

“Decent Campgrounds”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We camped here with a large group of friends that gets together every July to camp at a Michigan Campground. Metamora was what I consider "fine." Nothing major to complain about. Nothing to rave about either. The beach was nice, although far from the campground. There is a little camp store that offers snacks and a few items you may need. The bathrooms and showers are pretty much what you'd expect a campground to have. Modern and as clean as you can get in such a setting. The park rangers were all very pleasant, even with our group (which tends to be loud well after quiet hours, opps!). Beware of raccons at night, though. They are hungry and aggressive. The kids freaked out after being hissed at and there was bumping and clawing at the tents in the night. Many in our group had their food supplies ransacked. We put all of our coolers and food bins in the trunk of our car to be safe. All in all it was okay. Good enough for the group to vote going back again this summer. So, Metamora 2013 it is!

“whats not to love about it”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have walked almost everywhere in this park as a nearby resident with my dogs and other friends with their dogs as well. We also camped with friends and family and had great times. The park is clean with nice sites,sandy beach,beautiful trails with bridges and streams along the way and plenty of wildlife. There is plenty to do at the park for any age.

“home away from home”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We have a great time every camp trip. The hikes can be challenging if you are not prepared. The camp store is fun, and great ice cream. Love geocaching here.
