There are not many sites in this park suitable for a big rig, but there were a few. The staff were very accommodating in trying to find a spot for us that we would fit in. A pretty spot, with a great view of the lake. We would stay here again. We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We used to love camping here before our son was born. It is a beautiful park overlooking Lake Michigan. The location is very close to Manistee and to shopping and fishing. The drawbacks: lots of traffic, site are unlevel and the bathrooms are extremely old. Also, to get down to the beach, the stair way is extremely steep and is several steps down. Therefore, pack light. Senior citizens and families struggle to get up and down these stairs to the beach, I find them pretty dangerous. Hint: There is another roadside beach about 3/4 mile down the road that we go to because it is just easier. They also allow dogs on this beach. If the state could take some time and money to level out the sites, improve bathrooms and stairs to beach, things would be excellent. This park is often booked and should get enough volume to have the revenue to make these improvements. As for traffic, I don't like going there anymore in fear of my son being hit by a car. There is pretty much one loop that goes around the park and lots of traffic in and out. Fisherman are in and out at all hours of the day and night. I am shocked by the amount of parents that let their kids ride bikes because there is so many cars and an accident waiting to happen. There is extra room on the side north side of the park for more sites, they could easily redesign and level out this park. We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older state park in Manistee, MI. The showers were very clean and lots of warm water. The restrooms were clean but the hand dryer didn't work and once they were out of toilet paper. The park sits on a bluff that overlooks Lake Michigan. You can take about 70 steps down to the beach which is nice, just not very big. The sites are well shaded, but mostly dirt with little grass. The site we had was described as level but was not. The sites are also small and there is very little privacy. Campers are right on top of one another although they do keep it pretty subdued. The playground is dated and there is not much to do really. If I were in the area, I would consider staying there again but I would not make a special trip. We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Tent Trailer.
