This campground is shady and relatively attractive. All sites are on the natural ground except for a few paved ones, so be prepared to level your rig. Sites are not well-defined, which allows some flexibility on how to set up. The new bathhouses are a delight! Some road noise from the local road, particularly at one end of the campground. We camped at Bay City State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice family park close to Bay City. There is a lot to do for kids and adult in this area. The swimming is no the best but I was informed that the chamber of commerse is going to install piers for swimmers that go out past the green slime. Once you get past the slime the swimming is good nice sandy bottom. We camped at Bay City State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park with plenty of good sites to choose from. The bathrooms have both been rebuilt in the last couple of years and are real nice. We camped here for a Halloween Harvest Festival weekend, and it was packed with lots of families. Overall it's a real nice place, but as mentioned the water can be a little nasty for swimming, we stopped by in the summer and the beach was a long walk from the campground and didn't appear to be used due to muck in the water. But for a spring or fall trip this is a nice place and an easy drive from SE Michigan. If you need firewood there is an oil change place on hwy 13 just as you get to Kawkawlin that will sell 1/2 ($22.50) or full face cords ($45), which I thought was real reasonable for good hardwood, as the firewood purchased near the park was soft, rotted and/or wet. If the beach was nicer I would rate this park an easy 9, but gave it a 7 due to not being the best option for a hot summer day. We camped at Bay City State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
