Hopkins Park is operated by the city of Bear Lake. It is my favorite municipal park in Michigan. The quoted rate of $15 is for lake front. The rate off the lake is $13 and they have both monthly and annual rates. There are stores nearby to fulfill any needs that you might have. In compliance with "Nancy's Law" the park has replaced its playground equipment with safer equipment. The electrical service was updated in 2000 because of increasing demand by larger units. The restroom is immaculate with pay showers. There is a covered pavilion with picnic tables and there is a small swimming beach in the camp with a larger one a block down the road. There is a public boat launch and trailer parking. Of course there's a dumping station.
The park is well run with very friendly folks both in charge and camping. Bear lake is a small town within very easy driving distance from major tourist attractions like Sleeping Bear dunes, Traverse City and the cherry festival. - Motorhome Madness
First time here and very surprised at the quality of the campground. Crew was pleasant and grounds were spotless. Wi-Fi worked, depending on distance from clubhouse. Many activities for kids and families and great pool. Small store, great gathering room, and very good management. Nearby to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Crystal Mountain skiing, Legacy Art Park, casino, and varied shopping plus many local and national artists like Gwen Frostic. We will return. - dalenoel
Well kept up. Clean. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Very centrally located to casino, Sleep Bear Nat'l Lakeshore, fish hatchery, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, Interlochen, and Traverse City. Family friendly. - be rob
Great RV Kampground! We love this place. Great for kids and pets. Our children love the pools, playgrounds, horseshoes, shuffleboard, basketball, fishing, swimming and bike riding! You can come here and not have to leave...although there is plenty of things to do nearby. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the entire place is spotless. We've camped here many times and will continue to come back. - Mike McCrumb
