16 Parks near Honor, Michigan
Jul 2016 - $27.00
Our second visit in six years. Beautiful park with a dense forest of pine and deciduous trees. Lots of privacy between sites. Also very quiet night and day. The location is perfect; right in the middle of one of the most scenic areas of the county with hundreds of miles of hiking and multi-use trails along with charming villages like Frankfort and an easy drive to Traverse City and all its attractions. The campground is a adjacent to a very pretty beach where the Platte River terminates in Lake Michigan. The beach was soft sand and the water surprisingly warm. One may also canoe on the Platte River.
The campsites are electric only. This is no big deal except for the fact that the shower house next to our site #109 had only two showers. Some nights there were six or more people waiting their turn! There seemed to always be some sort of wait regardless of time of day. Perhaps the end of the token showers has its consequences...Regardless, the Park Service needs to add showers. The bathrooms and showers were usually OK, sometimes clean and sometimes seemed neglected for a day or so. We did not receive any TV stations over the air, and our At&t cell phone had weak signal strength. There is a convenience store right outside the campground for basic groceries; otherwise you can travel about 15 minutes to Buelah for a full scale grocery store. - Fdwt994

The park was very clean as always. Sites are not all level but are paved with good grills, table areas, and tent site areas for each site. Trail to the lake is good. Wood is available at the site and dry. Electric and showers used to be extra and now are included in the base fee which makes this a real good deal. - dalenoel

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

This might be the worst campground we have ever stayed in! Should have read the reviews! It is difficult to see exactly where the campground is located. Man checking us in wasn't a font of information either. There is no TV service, minimal cell service, the sites are all weeds and sand, extremely unlevel, only 2 50 amp sites. All sites are back in. Water pressure is weak and since there are apparently no rules, we didn't know what to do with garbage, dog bags and loud music, well after midnight! There are a few other campers but appear to be all permanent and unkempt...trashy! This campground could be so much more if someone cared. Passport America should reconsider supporting this place. Will never go here again! - Sewmom

Actually we had reservations for 3 nights at this park. We didn't even park. It was deplorable! We arrived on a Monday. 3 of the picnic tables were loaded with trash/garbage. Either dogs or wild animals had strewn it all over. It stank terribly. Person at office/store had the attitude after pointing to map saying here's you lots. Park however you want. Could not figure out lot numbers and hookups.
Passport America should remove this park from their system! - Long01
Jul 2014 - $21.00
The price reflects a Passport America price for two days. The second two days were $42. The campground is poorly marked. I had problems finding the campground. Need more and better signs. The only dumpster was up a long hill and in back of a work area. Had to ask several people the location. Not a pleasant walk. The sites were large but not level. No individual maps were provided to find the site or where anything was. - roybrody
Aug 2010 - $25.00
We were here for a month. Rate was $594 plus $49 for cable TV. There are nice tent sites available and some of the water/elec only sites on the river aren't bad. Scattered throughout are permanent sites in different stages of upkeep. As for the full hookups, there's a reason you don't see any site pictures on their website. They're very close together. We had about 2 feet between our awning and the next trailer's slideout. Water hookups are hard to identify. Just a pipe coming out of the ground with Y valves on them. Our sewer was uphill from our trailer. Not the best for dumping. Sites are dirt and rock with lots of tree roots. Hard to level. Bathhouse is old, but clean. If you tube or fish the river this place is for you. But there's no major shopping unless you go to Traverse City. The Lake Michigan beach is in Frankfort. And Sleeping Bear NP is at least a 30 minute drive away. This campground is ok for a weeks vacation, but I wouldn't recommend it for a month's stay. - d. orrell

Very nice park. There are small sites for tents and larger sites for large motor homes and 5th wheels. The river sites are smaller but can accommodate the larger units. The staff were helpful, pleasant and available when needed. Will come back again. - WriCoa Farm

We were in site #38 on the river. The site was a bit small (other sites around us were a bit bigger). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was very clean and well maintained. The water was even warm! We'll be back again. - Rick Honiss

Stayed on the campground side. The sites are very close together! The showers are not clean and there aren't very many available. The garbage dumpsters were overflowing with trash. - 2016_camper
Jul 2016 - $44.00
I paid $44 a night for water and electric, NOT sewer. They offer NO discounts, including nothing off for staying 7 days. On top of that, they charge for showers! Bathroom had **** on the toilet seat. You can connect to their Internet, but download speed was less than 0.2 mbit (useless). Internal roads are paved but not in good shape. Pool is nice, and support staff friendly. Sites have lots of shade but are sandy. - laredoct

This campground is really 2 in 1. One side is rustic and older and the other is new, modern, and very well equipped.
We stayed on the newer side. They are still adding new sites here but the current ones are very nice. They are fully paved and have a large patio attached. There was no picnic table but we have our own to use.
We were quite far from the club house, pool, and showers but a new building is in progress that will have showers and laundry in this area.
We would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

If you use GPS to find this park and use it's address, please be aware that the first entrance to the park will not be the one the GPS will try to get you to. The address leads you to the parks second entrance which is behind a Shell gas station/mini mart. We missed both entrances because we weren't looking for the first one and couldn't figure out why the GPS wanted us to go to a gas station. We didn't see the little campground sign below the Shell gasoline prices until our second pass by.
The campground itself seems to be very well maintained with mostly level sites that are either gravel or sandy. Our site had a port-a-potty next to it, but it got checked and maintained at least 4 times a day and we never smelled it. - JC06

Just putting this on here I stayed there for several years I was a guest the first year he open. My family had a great time there Derrick has made that campground a great place. Every year that I head back to Mi we try and stop by just to see the improvements You won't be sorry to stay there

Very nice park for visiting the area. Good WIFI, level sites and very well maintained. - B&S
Jul 2016 - $52.00
This is a relatively new park with very level concrete pads, reliable power and excellent water pressure. We stayed 5 nights while we explored northern Michigan. We would stay here again when we find ourselves in the area again. - foolsrushin

The good: Location. It's minutes from downtown and great home base to explore the area. Huge sites. Looks like they spray the gravel roads to control dust. The owners are super nice and helpful. As stated previously, this is a new campground. They were tiling the showers when we were there and the bathrooms look like a work in progress. Given enough time and effort, this place will be a great campground. The bad: I would not call it a resort. There are no amenities except a bathroom and a few showers - no pool, no clubhouse, no cable, not even an office. You pull up and they greet you. The grass is very thin and weedy. Patios and tree bases are weedy. The little play area was in pieces with overgrown grass. There are only small trees and no mature ones.
We will definitely go back despite the negatives. - Shrug

New development, I think second season, but super nice staff. Grounds clean, trees growing, paved sites, gravel roads, no pool, no cable, no real club house or office. Manager is working out of his motorhome parked next door to showers, rec room, etc., being completed. But minutes down the road from shopping, a quaint town, marina, harbor and friendly people. The site was formerly a vineyard, so it is flat. - Oooooooo

We really enjoyed this park. It's a good base location to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes. Many of the folks camping there have a boat, and the grassy sites are plenty big for a camper, boat, and vehicle, I didn't see any big rigs, but our 33" motorhome had plenty of room. There's a biking trail that goes right beside the campground. The bathrooms were clean with good showers and good places to put your stuff. The town of Frankfort nearby is a gem! There's a small grill at the campground, but we didn't try it. - mom2wildlife

Campsites were adequate, and in a nice setting. Restrooms and showers were clean. Shower water was hot, but there was no hot water at the sinks in the men's room. Electrical outlets in the women's room did not work. - T and V

The location of the park is excellent. It is located next to a bike trail that connects to Frankfort, Elberta and Beulah. Frankfort is a really neat town with unique restaurants, stores and best of all a great beach on Lake Michigan. Our site was on a nice grassy area. The hookups appear old and it was difficult having only 20 amp service. You can't beat the location. - gerollen

This resort is mostly cabins; however, they have a few camping sites. A couple are full hook-up and they have some amazing rustic sites. You can camp right on the river. The resort was re-possessed by the bank this year so the current person is running it until it sells. We have camped here before and had an excellent experience both times. It has a great view and is super quiet. This is going to become an annual trip for us. - camping gwen

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it very much. The campsites are spaced very nicely with some great for a group camp. The park is quiet and restful. - NINA W

We were looking for a campground close to Interlochen Center for the Arts so we could attend a concert and not have far to drive afterwards. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on week nights in July.
This is a very nice campground and the perfect location for attending an event at the ICA -1/4 mile walk on a pedestrian path. The staff were friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and well maintained. There was no wifi. Verizon and ATT cell coverage were ok. Sites are electric only. There's a water and dump station at a convenient location. In general, the sites closest to the water were smaller and less level. Those in the back row were a bit larger and more level. Most sites had good shade. - dsvt

I am generally amazed at the quality of Michigan State Parks! Interlochen was no exception - very comfortable site. We stayed here as base camp to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and this worked just fine (Dunes were marvelous by the way). Roads in good condition at the park, sites level, good electric, and a strong cellular signal for internet access. Lots of people here so bathrooms did get a bit dirty between cleanings. - AndersonFamily

I agree with others that the staff here is so friendly and welcoming. I love the staggered sites that we had with the 50 amp service and we did have some trees to look at so that was very nice. There are some very private sites scattered around so be sure to ask for that if that is your desire. My only regret with the campground is that the wifi didn't reach our site so we had to visit the clubhouse where the signal was nice and strong. I did get two channels over the air and actually got some WI channels the second time I scanned. The laundry facilities are also divided, meaning there is only one machine per location so it is hard to do a lot at once. This campground is in an out of the way location from most of the area's attractions but we did an exploring trip every day and really loved that we were out of the crazy. - Djinfl

Second year we stayed in September and had a great experience. The sites were all clean, trash free, with good utilities. The way the sites are staggered makes a pleasant view for everyone. Staff, family, in the office has always been helpful for whatever we needed. - dalenoel

This is our favorite park so far on our journeys. The site was level and shady. Roads were paved. The utilities worked great. Showers and restrooms were clean. The pool stairs were under repair, but they made sure to notify us during booking. The staff was always helpful and courteous. Wifi worked and the Verizon signal was decent. Our boys LOVED the playground, foosball, games, and everything else there was to do. Road noise from US31 was minimal thanks to the grassy berm built along the road. - Living Our Dash
