This is a must see and spend some time location. Beautiful views of Lake Michigan, Petoskey and Harbor Springs as well as plenty of wild life. This is an any season place to visit too. White sand beaches, volleyball and swimming in Summer. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Winter. I love this spot!

Great park with a perfect beach. Petoskey State park is beautiful whether you like laying on the beach, hiking trails, riding bikes on the little traverse wheelway, shopping, eating, etc. Everything about it says vacation.

During our summer vacation up north we decided to spend the day at Petoskey State Park. The beach was excellent, tons of room for all types of groups, older couples, groups of college age young adults and tons of families with kids. The lake was great, water was cool and very calm, really shallow a long way out so I could play Frisbee with my kids and nephew. Bathrooms were very clean and snack bar had a lot of great options, not what I expected from a state park!

If you are looking for a place to camp in northern Michigan, Petoskey State Park is the place to go! Clean facilities, and well maintained campsites, all just yards from a spectacular private beach. We camped here for a week and enjoyed it so much, we can't wait to get back! Beautiful bike trails and hiking trails throughout the park. So much to do in the area, with many quality restaurants and attractions within downtown Petoskey. Another bonus is that Petoskey is conviently located about 35 minutes away from Traverse City (which is to the West) and 45 minutes to Mackinac City (to the east). Make sure you sign up early in order to get a reservation, because they go fast!
