This is a very nice, well maintained state park. Spacious sites with table and fire ring. Restrooms and showers are clean, but dated. Few satellite-friendly sites, but ours worked well. Nice hiking trails across the street. There is a beach of sorts less than one mile north on Lakeshore Rd. Weather was quite rainy/blustery during our stay, thus did not have an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors as much as we wanted, but we would definitely return. We compliment MI DNR on a job well done! We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Orchard Beach State Park campground was our third Michigan SP during our recent travels up the Michigan west coast. This place is absolutely beautiful! The campground sits on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Gorgeous sunsets abound. The sites are level sand and grassy large sites with generous spacing between both side to side and back to back. Upon check in the three rangers had big smiles welcoming you to Orchard Beach. This campground may be the cleanest campground my wife and I ever stayed at. Its even spotless neat and clean around the dumpsters! Most sites are nicely treed with openings to the sun should you want to take in some rays. Its has a long stairway done to the lake shore for what might be termed the "beach" area but it is a small area and rocky. The lake seemed to have a step drop off also. However, less than two miles up the road is a county beach with a more typical Michigan huge sandy beach to enjoy all of your swimming and sun bathing desires! My wife and I can't wait to return to Orchard Beach SP! We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful little state park right on the shores of Lake Michigan. Very clean restrooms and excellent individual shower rooms. Most sites are level and all have full hook-ups and have tree shade. The sites along the shore bank are back-in only. Tents are allowed with RV'ers.

All in all it's a very nice place for one night or an extended stay. We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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/)
