3 Parks near Cheboygan, Michigan
Jul 2013 - $28.00
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

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
