1 Park near Garden, Michigan

You don't stay at Fayette campground for the amenities. There are no showers, dump station, or restrooms (pit toilets available), so arrive prepared. Thankfully, there is 30 amp electrical service. Surprisingly, the campground was busy. We stayed one night on a Sunday, and upon arrival at noontime, check in said they had a full campground on Saturday night. The campground is very wooded and backing our 30' motorhome took an extra few moments but was doable. I swore I would not be using the pit toilets during our stay, but they were not half bad. Hubby did not have satellite TV reception for the night because of the trees, but he did survive!
There was a limestone rock beach just down the hill from our campsite, which was very relaxing spot to read for a couple of hours. The main reason for our stay was to tour the Historic town located here, which is a photographer's dream location. Many buildings have been restored, and the town is located on a quiet cove with limestone cliff lining one side of the water. There are hiking trails and an informative Visitors' Center. - RagTopDay

The campground is nicely laid out, spaces generally reasonable. #30 is a pullthrough, but trees limit its utility. Several sites are not sufficiently level for a Class A though fine for tent/popup/trailer. No shower house (only vault toilets) and no flush toilets. Electric at each site. Faucet to fill tanks/containers available. There was NO Cellular coverage in the Lower Campground. 1/2 mile walk to the Historic town of Fayette. This was very fascinating and worth the trip. Free admission once you're in the park. - AndersonFamily

Rate is for 30 amp electric only. Gravel roads and sites. Self contained should arrive with full water and empty waste tanks, or at least room in the tanks for the planned length of stay. Big rig access is very tight. Many of the sites listed on the park website as suitable for big rigs have tight entries or exits, or low hanging branches. A fifth wheel during our stay took over an hour to get out their site with two rangers helping, so it is not a park for the faint hearten big rig owner. It's a great park for travel trailer, popup and tent campers. We loved our stay as the old town is great and would certainly return, but only if we could stay in certain of the big rig sites. - Bob-Linda
