1 Park near Honor, Michigan
Sep 2015 - $23.00
Very busy September mid-week. Weather was great so the campers came out! Sites are paved and level. Very spacious sites with just enough distance between.
2/3 of the sites are reservable. Loop 2 and part of loop 4 are "first-come-first-served". I recommend reservations but we did luck into a site without one. The next morning I had to check-in and find another site, again with luck there was one. - Craig H

We camped at Platte River for the second time in October, 2014. We thoroughly enjoy this park. The campsites are paved, level, and spaced generously apart. Sites are set in the woods with just the right amount of privacy--you can see your neighbors but can't hear their conversations, etc. The majority of the sites are on the outside of the loops, so you have no one camping behind you. The bathrooms are newer, well maintained, and immaculately clean. The showers require tokens, but are very nice. There is a dishwashing sink outside each bathroom which helps you conserve water usage/dumping as there are no water or sewer hookups. There is much to do in the area. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline was voted the most beautiful place in America on ABC's Good Morning America several years ago for good reason. Beautiful sandy beaches stretch for miles. There are lighthouses to visit, trails to hike, dunes to climb, lakes to kayak, etc. The Platte River runs parallel to the campground--it is very shallow and warm--tubing down the river is the ultimate in relaxation! - RagTopDay

We loved our six night stay here and would have stayed longer if we could. The rate reflects a senior discount. I never give more than a 7 usually to a park with electricity that does not have water but this was just such a great place. The one drawback is that it is 10 miles from the rest of Sleeping Bear Dunes national seashore and there are few trails here although there is the shallow Platte river to canoe or kayak. Would definitely return. - Oceannie
