We arrived at the park around 10:00 am but they had no openings. Suggested we return at 4:30 pm and they could put us in the overflow area that serves as their day use area right on the shore of the reservoir. This park has water and electric but the overflow did not. But we were right on the shore and woke up with two deer right at our door. Had to be out by 10:00 the next morning and could check on vacancy at 9:00 but we elected to head out to the next park in the morning. Showers and bathrooms looked to be almost brand new. Most sites also included a covered eating area. We walked the campground and we think larger rigs might have a problem fitting into the sites. We would use this option again.

We arrived relatively early in the morning and had a good selection of sites. There are 3 loops in the park and we selected a site in loop C the farthest loop out. This loop is a single loop built within the old orchards and is relatively private. One of the quietest campgrounds I have been in. Loved the site. Roads are great and all sites have paved strip. Plenty of room for most size RV's. Great "oasis" location with plenty of trees and green with the Fremont river running along the edge. Lots of history here with the Mormon settlement. Bathrooms in this loop were OK but appeared to be newer in the other loops. The one in this loop could have used a bit of maintenance (faucets did not run all that well) but it was clean. No showers here and no hookups. No cell or internet service either. Lots of trails right from the CG.

Park is on the lake although we did not see any sites that were on the lake or had lake view. Very spacious park-like setting in all the loops. Lots of sites! Paved pull-ins and back-ins. Large park with lots of biking potential and great beach front to play in. Showers and baths very clean. We primarily selected this CG because it was a Passport America campground which is unusual for a state park but found out that we did not read the fine print and the PA discount was not honored on day we were there. Would come back though.

Rating reflects that this campground is right off the highway. It is the perfect stopover for a night or two to rest up on your cross-country trip. It is close to highway and there is some noise although we were not bothered by it. CG is very well maintained, clean and quiet with nice wide gravel roads and pull-throughs. Lots of grass in between sites. Some sites shaded and others in the open. Food at office is OK but agree with above that a bit overrated but we are foodies. Definitely will stop here again when going through..

Nice campground at entrance to the park. No services available. No hot water or showers. Very little shade, but there are some sites with a single tree that can provide some shade. I was in #11 - nice pull thru - relatively close to the recycle area. Flies were a bit pesky, so if you are outside you will need a good swatter or spray. Great campground to see the park with. Allow at least 1 and half day to see all of the park. Make sure you get your cave permit before you leave the visitor center. Caves are easy hikes and worth it. Campground was very quiet and the two nights I was there only about 20% full. Would come back.

We reserved only about 3 weeks ahead of time and our site was quite nice. Biggest complaint is that pull thru site was on the left side of the one way road and our door had to face the road. We managed to turn around and entered from the other side. Recommend at check in that you try and get a site on the outside of the loop not the inside or otherwise plan on going in the wrong way on the one way entrance and have someone go ahead of you. Was not a big problem. I would not recommend the A-E loops as they are fairly open with tall trees and little privacy. Other loops more forested and private. Since you can't reserve a particular site recommend you discuss at check in if possible. Rate includes 2 free showers per day. We stayed in H loop which had easy short walk to the lake. If you plan to spend some time on the shore reading a book bring a fly swatter or spray. There is a dump station at the campground and another behind the gas station which is less crowded. If you use the one at the gas station go in with the gas station to your right. The other way has a severe dip that can hinder emptying tanks. We loved the campground and would come back.

We stayed in the Bluffs section site 62. were across the road from the waterfront sites but was still outstanding. Grass with shade, level and what a view! Most sites the same. This is the best section of the CG. Brand new bath and showers(free)which I think is the same in the whole CG. Could not control water temp though so on the 90 degree days it was a bit warm but plenty of it. Sites along lake book early (90days) so don't wait and they are all great. Sites are very spacious and many are open but still lots of privacy. Some of the sites in other sections do have very nice water views and access but are not right at the water's edge like in the Bluff area. A bit pricey for just electric but the views are worth it. Beach is OK and very long but lots of birds and their droppings everywhere. CG tries to rake the beach regularly. Great biking and birding here. Free shuttle into town. Definitely will return and stay longer and hope to book a water site. Only reason for a 9 is that water is not that easy to get in the CG.

Large CG with 2 sections - North and South. Do not recommend staying in the North Campground. We stayed there on site 74-basically field camping with few trees. Only shade along the outside rim sites. We were there on weekend, very crowded, little privacy and lots of noise with all the kids and more importantly the dogs. Many dogs barking even with owners sitting with them in camp! Many campers did not know how to build fires so we were bathed in lots of smoke to point we had to shut MH up and go to AC both nights. Baths are all brand new and in great shape. Showers real nice and free. Fee does not include the $29 annual park pass for EACH vehicle, MH and Toad. We plan to visit more MI CG's this season though. Otherwise fee is $7 per day per vehicle. I complained about this to no avail. Lake Huron beach is right next to the CG. Clean beach and water - nice sand. Very nice and quite long. So the rating of 4 was due to noise, lack of privacy and the outrageous $29 fees. South Campground was smaller and much more private with lots of shade. I would stay here again but only in the South Campground. Great BBQ place across the street from the CG. GO THERE.
