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.

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

Nice park on the beach. Good facilities, not crowded mid-week at this time of year. Lots to see and do in area. Town easy walk distance for shopping and supplies. In process of fixing up park due to heavy use. Trains run all day and night so be aware but everybody sleeps right through the noise. Beach is great for kids. Sites are blacktop, sand, or grass. - socalretiree

This park has a great location and is right on the beach, which is perfect if you have a ocean front space, the rest of the sites are in rows that are extremely close together. The spaces are not angled which can be problematic for fifth wheels trying to back in. If you're traveling with a family, kids, bikes, etc. and don't mind being within a few feet of your fellow campers, you'll probably be fine, but if you want a little privacy or seclusion this beach will not suit you. It is a nice beach and the proximity to town is quite close and walkable but $67 for a small and crowded parking space seems a bit much. - Cinzia

We stayed in beach row site #133. Sites 132-134 have a tree and bushes blocking the beach view from your table and fire pit. Minor inconvenience with the breaking waves less than 75 feet away. Our area sites were not angled so make sure you know how to back up really well. The only down side for me was the sites are really close together. With my awning out, it was only 5 feet from the neighboring RV. All and all, a great experience. - desertcamper05

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

Close to downtown & shopping, long nearby bike/walking path, park is clean & well kept with a friendly staff to greet you. We stayed near the end of the season so only a few campers where there. Docks on the river to watch boats go by or fish off from. If you own a boat they have a launch & a place to dock it. Some road noise from M-33, M-27 but not bad. - 1972 camaro

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

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

We echo the good comments on this park. It was the most expensive park we have encountered this season, with 12 weeks and 9000 miles traveling, however, in this case, we feel that we got what we paid for. Bear in mind, this is a massive RV park about 3 miles south of Mackinaw City. Our site was nearly a mile drive to the entrance. Many waterfront sites, but they are much smaller than other sites. We had a site 2 rows back from waterfront that was spacious, treed and very private, as are many there. This park is a destination resort in many ways. They have everything needed there on site. The general store is a bit pricey, but has whatever you may need. I rode my bike 3-5 miles per day and never left the park! They employ many students for the summer, all of which are trained to provide exceptional service from the time you arrive until you leave, as are all other regular employees. They have ongoing programs daily. The park creates its own atmosphere and was a great place to stay. We would stay here again without question. - AlaskaJack

Booked a "large" RV site 6months in advance, and checked in to a site that was about 25' wide. Our receipt said that our site was 40' wide. We brought this to the office's attention, and they courteously moved us to a lakeview site, which was the same width, but the view was FANTASTIC. If you can fit into a 25'w site and don't mind getting to know your neighbors, get the lakeview site, it's worth it.
Portions of the park have dirt roads which are not particularly well-maintained, but most of it has paved roads which are sufficient for navigation with RVs. Many FHU sites, OTA tv is fair (no cable). Wi-Fi is spotty (first site we were on it was great, on the lakeview site, not so good), and costs money to use, per day.
Camp store is large and well-stocked, registration office has numerous agents for check-in. As mentioned in other reviews, this park is huge and has lots of check-in/check-out activity every day.
The proximity to Mackinaw City, island ferry, the bridge, etc., is excellent, and the views of the lake, bridge and island from our site were worth the narrow site and the hassle of setting up twice, after the move.
We'd go back here, and would select another lakeview site. Would have given it a '9', if the roads were a little better on that northwest section and if there were fewer weeds in the 'privacy' growth between sites. Other people have complained about the lone shower house, but we use our own shower, so that wasn't a big deal, but it is a bit of a hike from parts of the campground. - fastalker64

Good signage. Interior roads and sites are sand/dirt but are well maintained. Sites are lined by trees/shrubs for privacy. Wifi is not free. You need to purchase a plan. Our ATT hotspot worked well so we did not check the prices for wifi plans.
Interior road layout is confusing at first. Our site was up front so there was a little road noise. No cable but got a good satellite connection. Close to all attractions.
The only negative is that you have to drive all the way up to the office area to dump trash. They really should place a couple more dumpsters around the park. We would stay here again. - dickens

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
