This is one of the best CGs I ever have been. Paved roads and large wide level paved sites with large patios, widely separated with good mowed grass, few small trees, EWS. Huge park with tennis court, playground, an extensive 8ft wide paved bike/hiking path surrounding 2 lakes with a sandy swimming beach, all very well maintained, and a entrance dump. Across the highway is another large wooded section of the park. All this for $28. Reservations available. Kalamazoo county parks deserves applause for a great job. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice county park that appears to be relatively new. Paved roads with concrete pull-through and back-in sites. Concrete patio with picnic table. Fire ring next to patio, wood available at office. Trees are young but did offer a little shade. Nice paved walking/bike trail around a lake which also has a small swimming beach. Play area for children. The utility post resembles a light house with electric and 2 water spigots. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, newer, county campground located just north of Kalamazoo and only a couple of miles from highway 131. Check-in staff were efficient and friendly. Sites are large and paved with grass in between and both pull-through and back-in are available. All sites have full hookups with 30/50 amp power. The bathrooms are modern and clean. There is also a lake for fishing and swimming, a nice play ground, and a walking/biking trail. There is no WiFi. There is a tree at every site but they are still small so the sites are open. Close to Kalamazoo, shopping and restaurants. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.

Nice county campground, just outside of Kalamazoo. No Wi-Fi and marginal Verizon wireless connection. No cable but 20 OTA channels. Playground and pond with a beach. Sites are wide and most are big enough for large RVs. Full hook ups. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice surprise. Went there for a nephews soccer tournament and ended up deciding we would be back soon. Super close to Bell's Brewery, 50 amp service with a super large lot. Nice lake for kids to swim. Looking forward to using Kalamazoo's bike trails that adjoin it. Oh also a great price. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed for two nights for nearby Bell's Brewery Beer Garden opener, featuring Greensky Bluegrass! Loved the facilities and clean campsites. Great beach and park for kids. One star deduction for the train that idled on the tracks nearby for 12 hours. Would still highly recommend and stay again. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a lovely park! We were looking for a one night stopover on our way north to the Soo Locks. We pulled in with no reservations and were treated like a welcome friend! Staff was very friendly and helpful, despite working in 100* heat. They saw we had two small dogs and suggested a site with the most shade to make things easier for the dogs! Sites are concrete slab and lovely grass with picnic table and fire pit. Power pole was quaint little lighthouse looking thing with low voltage lighting that was lovely at night. There is a nice lake for swimming. It is fairly new and the trees are a little young so shade is not what it would be with mature trees, but lovely none the less. Park is spotless and well groomed. Would have loved spending a couple days here. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with cement pads and strong 50 amp service. About 1/3 of the sites are drive thru with ample room for big rigs. My unit is 38 feet but I really slowed for the entrance metal gate, exit gate was fine. Walking trail and stocked lake for young fishermen were well groomed. Only reason I didn't give 10 stars was the campsites were very small in the wing we stayed at but some other sites were a little larger. Had a very good family time there with no problems. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A county park this beautiful !!?? What a great find. It's quiet, spacious, long pull-throughs, clean bathrooms, places to walk, bike and run. A lake that you can swim in. Quiet at night. No WiFi. Water pressure was good. A very nice place to stay for a restful couple of days. Lots of staff around to make sure the place is clean and safe. Oh, when you arrive from the south, you have to swing WAY wide to turn right into the park. It's more than a 90 degree turn. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

In order to get to this park from 94 to the south, you need to go through some "rough" neighborhoods and roads. When we left, we went north to Ave D and then west to 131, then south down to 94. Much nicer way to come in also. No city traffic or streets.

Very nice park,. Small, only 38 sites, full (50 amp) hookups, concrete pads, decent sized sites, could use more shade but the trees are growing as fast as they can! Swimming area was quite nice too. Quiet park. Only real complaint is the wet firewood they sold us. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

From this location you can visit all of Kalamazoo, Flint and other nearby towns. Our only complaint was the overzealous seasonal worker who mowed just feet from our table during breakfast (she proceeded to mow other areas of the park that were uninhabited, so not sure why she chose to interrupt our breakfast)

I agree with former reviews. This was a first-class county park. We went over to the day-use park which was also very nice. It has a well maintained beach for sunning or for swimming in the lake. Fishing is also allowed in the lake. We stayed here for 4 nights on a pull-thru site with 50 amp electric. The only bad experience (not the fault of the campground) was tornado warnings for this area of Michigan. We definitely would stay here again! We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.
