Traverse City State Park, Traverse City, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is in the East Bay side of town. If you want to have an urban camping experience, this campground is for you. You hear a lot of road noise, planes flying above and a train. The sites offer very little privacy. The camp host was very helpful at the fill/dump station; there was not a huge lineup, though the campground was full. We camped at Traverse City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are numerous restaurants in the area that are very good. 20 minutes away are all the big box stores. A nice historic downtown to walk around shop/dine. The beach across the street is so-so, you have to walk across a bridge that goes over the main highway. There is however a lot to do and see in the area.

Port Crescent State Park, Port Austin, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

The park is small but the sites are amazing. Hill sites have beautiful views of the lake. Great beach, sandy. Some of the sites are tricky to get your camper level, lots of blocking, slopes or lots of sand. Some of the lakefront sites do not offer a view of the lake. We camped at Port Crescent State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tawas Point State Park, East Tawas, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great family park with a lot to do. Bring the bikes there are riding trails. You could ride to town, which is 3 miles from park. Great pet beach, bring fido. Did not try the little restaurant by "human only" beach but the menu had great selections, food looked good and very close to beach and lighthouse. Plus the view of Lake Huron. Sites are large but you don't get much privacy. Sites with water views are nice but only of Tawas Bay. We camped at Tawas Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Town of East Tawas is 3 miles from park. Great food market/butcher with fresh steaks in town, will ground your meat while you wait. There is also a Walmarts about 4 Miles away. There is a Big Boy restaurant on the corner of the main road M23 and Beach Road. You can rent sup or kayaks at the beach in the park.

Lakeport State Park, Lakeport, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

The only reason I gave a Satisfactory rating on cleanliness is the firepit had garbage and cigarette butts in it. Call the office though and they will come and clean it out. If you stay in the North end - there are beautiful views of Lake Huron. The South end has concrete padded sites and feels a little bit more woodsy. The beach can be a little rocky so surf walkers can be helpful. Nice walking trails as well. There is a camp store that sells wood and ice cream, some supplies as well. We camped at Lakeport State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The quaint little town of Lexington is to the North but if you need to do grocery shopping or need rv/camp supplies - Port Huron has the big box stores. Good restaurants in both places as well as across from the campground at the BBQ place. Tally Ho (bar/restaurant) is just around the corner as well.

Wilderness State Park, Carp Lake, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

One of the best and most beautiful state parks! The beach, within the park, is great with beautiful views and there is also a dog beach. Very peaceful and dark park at night. There is a lot of hiking trails and great biking, paved roads. Go as far west that the road will take you and you will find another beach and exploring area. A must is the donuts at Wilderness Camp Store. Homemade and delicious. The only wildlife we you will see are skunks, wildturkey, chipmunks, etc. There are some very elaborate tent setups. If you need "tourist" things Mackinaw city is 10 miles away with the ferry to Mackinac Island. St. Ignace is great for grocery and lunch. Plus a ride over the bridge. Staff is friendly and helpful. Can't wait until next year to come back to Wilderness. We camped at Wilderness State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good restaurants in Mackinaw City - KeyHole and Nona Lisa's. St. Ignace - the Gangplank, yummy whitefish tacos! Great seafood company by the grocery store.
