This state park campground was not busy during our August 2018 stay which made it quiet and pleasant. Potentially one reason for it not being busy is that one currently cannot access the beach from the campground due to the high lake level making the stairs unsafe to use. There are several beaches in the immediate area for those who want to walk on the beach or swim. We stayed in one of their full-hook-up campsites. These are popular, so they are more worn and sandier than some of the other sites. There has been some bathroom updating since we were here three years ago. TV reception is poor; on occasion we could get Green Bay, WI stations but only consistently could get a Michigan public station. Cell phone reception was decent. Town is relatively close. Park personnel are friendly and helpful. Overall it is a very nice state park campground. We will definitely return. We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

While we used to come to this campground often, we had not been here for over twenty years. We thought we would give it a try again. They now have eleven full hook-up sites. They also created five pull-through sites. They have new electric throughout the campground and a three-lane dump station. We stayed in one of the full hook-up sites. Most all sites have some shade and most are pretty decent size. A lot of the sites are not very level which can be challenging. The full hook-up sites are popular which means that they are well worn and are mostly dirt surface. Other sites can have more grass and a very few have gravel pads. The bathrooms are old and some repairs are needed, but they are kept clean. TV reception is poor; besides a Michigan public station, we could only receive Green Bay (WI) stations. Cell phone reception was good. The park location is beautiful. It is one of the few places you can stay on Lake Michigan without being in a parking-lot type location. We could see the lake from our campsite. You are close to town without being in town. The beach is very narrow (when the water level is high like this year) with a lot of stairs to reach it, so less convenient for beach lovers. However, there are lots of other beaches available within a short driving distance. The stairs to the beach are in good condition and give you good exercise! We will definitely return! We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the Michigan Audubon's Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary just north of the campground. They have beautiful grounds, big trees, and interesting trails - including one to a nice beach. (http://www.michiganaudubon.org/lake-bluff-bird-sanctuary/)
