Park is very friendly, clean, with mostly grass sites that are level. Lake was good for sailing my RC sailboat. Wood is available at the office and a small store in next to the park with all other items including ice cream by the scoop. We come here every year. We camped at Aloha State Park in a Travel Trailer. - dalenoel

This campground has a great clean lake, Mullet Lake, with views from all sites and boaters can access the Michigan Inland Waterway right from the camp. Our group of 5 had sites back to back with good space between sites. Cheboygan, Mackinac, and Mackinaw Island are close for shopping and entertainment. Park is very friendly, clean, with mostly grass sites that are level. Wood is available at the office and a small store in next to the park with all other items including ice cream by the scoop. We come here every year. - dalenoel

The owners are lovely people--very friendly and accommodating. We felt like family here. Bathhouses have private dressing area and are kept sparkling clean. We would definitely stay here again. - Wind blows

We did not stay at this park. We pulled in to check it out because I could not find it under any reviews except Yahoo local.
This is a beautiful little rv park. It is electric and water. Not sure if they have 50 amp. There is a dump station on site, in a very convenient location. There are a couple of pull through sites in the center of the rv park. The rest appeared to be back in. The sites are huge with an amazing, unobstructed view of Lake Huron. The owner was so nice, and tried to accommodate us. Unfortunately, we were looking for a 2 week stay and my hubby doesn't like having to pack up to go dump. That is the only reason we did not stay here. The owner gave me brochures, some magazines and coupons for local attractions. We will definitely stay here when we return to the area for a shorter stay. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

This little park, on Lake Huron, is a gem. At first, the campsites seem a little close (we are used to WI State Parks,) but compared to several other Michigan State Parks we've been to, these are actually quite roomy. The staff is very young, but attentive and polite. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly. The water sites, although technically on the water and very pretty, are not on swimmable water. The lake near the campground is reedy and marshy. The swimming beach is a few miles down a gravely road. I advise driving, or renting a kayak to get through the reeds at the campground (kayak rentals are reasonable.) The lake beyond the reeds is swimmable... The bottom only slightly mucky and rocky. You can kayak to the beach if the water isn't too choppy. The beach has a nice, sandy bottom. Best advice is to kayak out to the 3 shipwrecks, marked with plastic milk jugs on a day when the lake is calm and clear. Very cool! From the campground - go through the reeds, turn right (north) and kayak until the water drops off. Just beyond that point there is also is a sandy area that is shallow and nice for swimming. - JSCS

This is a pretty small park relative to the other state campgrounds we've used. We had site 44 which was a prime site with decent privacy and a path directly to the water. Other sites looked like they were lacking in privacy and very close to each other; be careful selecting. Camp roads are dirt and small. I kind of felt this park might be due for a refresh. Location wise, we had easy access to Mackinaw City, the bridge, and the City of Cheboygan. It was a great base of operations for activities in the surrounding communities. My biggest complaint with this campground was the lack of ranger presence. The staff seemed extremely young, which isn't a problem itself, but they seldom ventured away from the ranger station. The sense of order you get with a visible park ranger presence was missing. From teenagers playing catch in the road and hitting parked cars with their baseballs to very loud groups after quiet hours, it just wasn't a relaxing stay. If parents aren't willing to parent their kids and teach them to respect the folks around them, I expect the park rangers to step in and take some action. Furthermore, from 3-7 AM, there was a cell phone ringing non-stop somewhere in the park. We tried to contact park staff but at that hour the ranger station was vacant and the park phone number went unanswered with no option to leave a message. That made for a few grumpy campers the next morning. We spent part of a day at the beach, which was nice. The beach facilities appeared well maintained and there was plenty of room to setup the umbrella and watch the kids play in the water. There was firewood and ice available at the ranger station, $2 for ice $4 for wood. The wood was dry, mostly oak. There was also kayak rental which we didn't do. I doubt we'll return to this park to camp. - Brewstar

This park looks like waterfront on the map but it does not have Waterfront sites. You can see out to the water, but it is very reedy, treed, and grown in. The sites close to the water were not long enough for our RV, or they were pre-booked. Office staff were difficult to find and did not appear to know which sites were available. I had to make 3 trips to the office before setting up. Sites are $23 but you have to buy a passport to get into the park. - acadiandave

Rate is based on a weekly stay. This is a beautiful campground, and the hosts are wonderful people. There were only a couple of campers when we were here. They are getting ready to close for the winter.
We had a roof top, satellite friendly spot ( 43 ) that was extremely spacious. CG wi fi worked very well, as well as Vz and AT&T phone service. There was a picnic table and fire ring in our site, which was very quiet. The only negative of the park was the low water pressure, but not so bad as to be a problem. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

We stayed for two nights when we went to walk the Macinaw bridge on Labor Day. The couple managing it where great and very helpful escorting you to your site and helping you get parked.
As other stated this is right on the water and you can sit on the docks and watch the boats go by.
Cute place and we would stay again. - Buspuppies

This is the second time we have stayed here. Park is clean and the people managing it were helpful. Park is for sale. It has river access for fishing or for boating. We would stay here again. Verizon wifi and phone worked well. Dish satellite worked well and you get a number of local channels on your antennae. Rate is for 1 week. - rolling homeless

Campground was clean and orderly but sites were very small and cramped. Nighty rate was low but they charge extra for more than two people on the site and for using the air conditioning. They had pontoon rentals which I didn't use, and a dog walk, bike path through the woods. The camp office is also not always staffed, we stopped in to ask a question and no one was around. - No 1 Camper

$41 a night for full hookups. Pay for 6 nights, got 7th night free. Sites were pull thru with two facing each other. Sites were a little tight. Pool was very nice. Many people had boats, and many of the sites are seasonal campers. - laredoct

Arrived the night before the park was closing for the season. We were having RV problems and the owners kindly allowed us to stay an extra night. They were very understanding and friendly.
The park grounds appeared well maintained, didn't use any of the facilities. We had no problem maneuvering our 40 ft RV through the park. - Tazi4cricket

This is a huge campground a few miles south of Mackinac City right on Lake Huron. We have a 45' with toad so they directed us to a road where we could unhook and take car separately into the site. It was a very wide & deep site with room for the trailer in front of the coach and lots of space next to it for picnic table/chairs/etc plus parking the car. We were able to pull out and load the car right on the trailer to exit but getting into the spot with the trailer/car would have been tough. No wi-fi. Big camp store and pool area. Also saw a big playground. Lots of kayaks at sites so I'm sure kayaking was great right off the sandy beach. - monamonaco

Tent camped on a more rustic site. Plenty of privacy between sites, trees and shrubs, and grass to place tent on. The water was hot in the showers and free of charge. There is a swimming pool and bikes for rent.
We didn't have a Fire Ring but never asked about it because we were not having a fire. We actually asked for this particular site and was told it was not an available section, but they let us camp there anyway. We were lucky and didn't have any one camping right next to us, so it made it more private.
Overall very satisfied with our experience. I would camp here again next summer. - anne36

I think we had the best waterfront site in the park. The view was great. The site was plenty big enough and had some trees/shrubs for privacy. Nice store, and the roads were great. Nice beaches and a pool we never made it to. We had to leave early for an emergency at home, and they offered to refund my unused days without even asking. We'll certainly be back in the future. - ga80486

This is a beautiful state park. There are many shade trees and plenty of area to walk you dog. We camped here after Labor Day weekend so it was quiet. The lake appears to be clean and a good place to swim on a hot day. There are no sewers at the sites. It is a short drive to the Cross In The Woods Shrine. Also short drive into town for groceries, gas. Listed our site as 1 since I did not retain paperwork. Most of the campground is heavily shaded so if you want sun ask for a site near to the lake. - petpeople

This campground is very nice. The lake is warm and sandy and great for swimming. The sites along the water are perfect and there is a lot of grass to spread out. Some site are even paved. Be careful of the sites in the back row, as you leave the water sites the sites become very sandy and there is too much shade. I would return. - chipper1360

We had a great family weekend here with several other friends/campers. We had a generous site (#55) with water and electric. We had friends close by with electric and others in cabin. All had a fantastic time. We camped Memorial Weekend, so only a small portion of sites were in use. Made it really nice for the kids with the activities and time with the characters. Park was clean, bathrooms kept up. We'll plan a return trip later this summer. - asheffer

We had a wonderful time at this campground. So much for the kids to do at all times -but still a very laid back place to be. Our four year old talks about this park all the time and we're actually going again this weekend. Sites are a little tighter to get into now with our larger 5th wheel - but we managed. On-site travel trailers and cabins are also available. Our friends stayed in a cabin with their young son and liked it a lot. - family_5ers

We had a wonderful time at this campground. The staff was super friendly; some restrooms where clean but could use updating, however nothing to complain about by any means. I would recommend this park to anyone. - boracada

This is basically a large field that has been made into an RV park with roads and utilities on sites. Water and electric and a dump station. Pit toilets! But in another city that is a big tourist destination with $40-$50 parks this is a great park! We were here to see lighthouses not for park amenities! - Rick & Karen
Jul 2015 - $20.00
Hookups are 30 amp electric and water only. Pit toilet and no showers. At $20 a night, the value is off quite a bit. However, if you are self contained the location is very good. Sites are mostly level and grass. Big rigs might want to avoid the first gravel road as the trees have grown in quite a bit since our last stay. - Bob and Inga
Jun 2015 - $20.00
This is a relatively small campground. Sites are grass and level and is close to the Interstate and downtown Mackinaw City. Good stopover for one or more nights, especially considering the $20 price. We would stay here again.
(Contrary to the previous review this campground is not on Lake Huron, but is about 1.75 miles away as the crow flies. And, the camp rate is $20, not $33). - gatordan

This park had a beautiful view of the Mackinac Island bridge. The beach area is rocky, I'd highly recommend water shoes if you're a swimmer. The campground is conveniently located in the Mackinac area but it's nothing glamorous. You can hear road traffic very easily. The bathrooms were HOT after a shower, and there is barely enough room to change your clothes in private. DO BRING A SCREENED IN TENT FOR BLACK FLIES. There's a nice playground on the beach area for children.
The mackinaw island ferries run a shuttle service to this campground as well as other hotels campground's in the area. - M_P_RIPLEY

The previous review by "bloomis" was right on. We stayed for one week, paid for 6 nights and received one night free. Ask for the bonus package. Great family park. Bike trail just outside of park takes you to town in about 10 minutes. Really convenient to ferries to Mackinac Island. Only down side was the water pressure was very low when the park was full. - Pastor Bob
Jul 2016 - $35.00
We stayed 4 nights. Smaller campground that was just perfect. No frills, just camping, a nice beach. Very close to town, offered to call shuttle service for ferries. No full hookups, but if you needed to dump while there, they provided blue totes to dump. Staff was on site and friendly. Nightly group campfire on the beach was awesome! Beach was mostly sand with some rocks, but they were smooth. We will return here. - bloomis
