The park was crowded due to the July 4th holiday but not noisy at night. Upkeep at the park was good as was the attention by rangers. local police also drove through once a day. Boat and kayak rentals allowed access at reasonable prices while the fishing dock was also available.

The beach was not overly crowded as well as the bike trails.

Worse problem is low voltage when near the end of the line. Could not run the AC during most of the days there. Was and has always been a problem at this park. We camped at Brighton Recreation Area / Bishop Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Howell and Brighton are within 10 miles and all major stores and restaurants are available.

As usual this park is quiet, family friendly, dog friendly, and a good park to face all rigs into the center for a group area. We had 12 rigs, including tents, and had a good family time. The attractions here include the mountain bike trails, Explore guide with activities for the kids, and a quiet lake for swimming and fishing. The campground is close enough to all of the big box shopping so if anything is left home you can get it within 10 miles. We camped at Brighton Recreation Area / Bishop Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were here before the schools got out for the summer and the campground was mostly empty. We stayed in the upper campground and were pleased. Users were spaced out and the entire campground was quiet. Rangers had everything clean. The fire pits were cleaned out, firewood is available, and canoe/kayak rentals are already available. The beach was raked and ready. We enjoyed all of the trails both around the lake and through the woods. Will be back here.

This is a clean park with average size, grass with shade and sun sites but very narrow roads. The park is quiet at night. There is a long paved nature walk to the beach. Great for those who enjoy a walk in nature. We take a wagon to pull our towels, chairs and picnic. The beach is clean, warm and sandy. It's a great park. If the sites were easier to navigate with a larger trailer we would go back to Brighton in a second. We camped at Brighton Recreation Area / Bishop Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were ahead of the season and there were only 4 other sites occupied. The restrooms were cleaned every day, showers had plenty of hot water, and the park was very clean and free of trash and debris. Were here with 3 other rigs and had a great time. The weather was still a little cool but walking the trails and around the lake was relaxing. We will come back. We camped at Brighton Recreation Area / Bishop Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are large and level. We were there during the week and it was very quiet. For a State Park it was great. We camped at Brighton Recreation Area / Bishop Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a typical Michigan DNR campground. Electric only, 20 & 30 amp, with water spiggots (no threads for hoses) here and there and dump station on the way out. Toilet and shower building is new and clean. Grass goes up to lake in the lower campground and a sandy beach is a walk along the lake. Boat launch is available on the lake. Many trails for the kids to explore. We camped at Brighton Recreation Area / Bishop Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
