We stayed during the week between two Harvest Festivals and the park was empty. This park is always clean with the biggest activity being watching freighters travel the St. Clair River. Sites are either paved or graveled with power poles close in the rear. Off the pads it is mostly grassy. Would rate higher if there was anything outside the park to do. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We did travel north to Lakeport State Park, Lexington, and Marine City. The Marine City Fish Company has a good menu with reasonable prices and fantastic service. AT&T service is spotty but watch for roaming charges from Canada as you might switch towers without even moving. 8 television stations are available with a couple from Canada.

If you like to watch Great Lakes ships close-up, one of the camp sites close to the river here is an excellent place to do it. Ships coming from Lake Superior, Huron, and Michigan have to pass through the St. Clair River on their way to Lake Erie and the rest of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Roads were paved and sites were mostly gravel, but the view, at least for me, was everything. You can choose between treed and more open sites. Good Verizon service, as well. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

Great view of freighters traveling the river. Very relaxing watching the river activities. Not crowded during the week so in and out is easy.No hookups other than electric but with a short stay that is not a big problem. For longer stays a trip to the dump station is fairly simple. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times. It is a nice large state park right on the St. Clair River. Lots of space and trails, both paved and not, to walk and walk the dogs. It is open year round (no running water rest rooms in the winter) and we have staying with 18' on snow on the ground - they plow some sites. It is a very nice and pleasant campground and a good weekend getaway. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

This is still one of our favorite parks. The sites are well taken care of, and the boat traffic is a lot more than last year. I am referring to the large lake freighters that go past in front of your RV. There is not a lot for children provided in the area. Bring your own bikes and other playthings. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite parks. The spots vary from small to large with some pull-through sites. Electric is 30 or 50 amp depending on site chosen. The river front has a great view of the large freighters on the St. Clair River. Across the river is the Walpole Island Island Reserve that is in Ontario, Canada. There is not a lot of tourist activities in the area but relaxation and scenery are very good. This is NE of Detroit area and is usually very crowded on weekends and holidays. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

The state needs to authorize funding to resurface the campground roads and sites. Also the original bathroom building needs to be rebuilt. It would also be nice too see this this park totally rebuilt like the Sterling Park in the Monroe Mi area. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

A nice park, we stayed up in the Wagon Wheel part of the park. Only draw back is it's far from the freeway. Would return when in the area. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, friendly and green atmosphere however, we parked on the row closest to the river. The traffic noise, and busy traffic that you have to navigate through, in order to get to the river, was a definite negative. Next time, we will stay at the Wagon Wheel portion of this park. That area is secluded, and most of all...quiet! We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

This was my third time camping at this park in 2008 and I have enjoyed each stay. Beautiful riverfront view including watching passing freighters. Nice bike and foot paths. Very clean restrooms and showers. Even a few rows back I still had a decent view of the water. Extremely friendly staff. A convenience store not too far away where firewood may be purchased as well as pretty good tasting pizza. Only drawbacks are a very busy main road right in front of the campground. Also, skeet shooting can be heard at times throughout the day. The riverfront view and the other things the park has to offer make it worthwhile. There is a large day use park next door to the campground and across the road from that is a small swimming beach. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.

Waterfront means behind the main freeway in/out of town. Crossing this road, to get to the beach, is dicey... particularly if you've got kids... lots of locals use the area as a spot to blare their music, and get loaded- all day long. Campground, itself, is my impression of 'combat-camping'. No trees, wide open, fairly cramped sites. constant drone of road noise. showers were not nearly as clean as other MSP's we've been to. I'm a real fan of Michigan State Parks, but this place was a bust! We camped at Algonac State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park for relaxing. We go quite often as it is close to home, and an easy relaxing weekend. Not much to do but view is great. Bathrooms are always clean and the staff is friendly. Even weekends that are full stay pretty quiet (Wagon Wheel is quieter and more private). We camped at Algonac State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice family campground. There were lots of kids and dogs and it was busy. We enjoyed it and it was peaceful at night even though a bit crowded. You can watch the freighters pass by on the shipping channel which is very cool. Nothing much for little kids to do except bike ride.Still a very well kept park. We camped at Algonac State Park in a Motorhome.
