We were looking for a campground in the general area to spend one night as we traveled through this part of MI. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in July.

This is a very nice campground on a bluff over Lake Michigan. There are lake views in several places in the campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites are in an open space interspersed with large trees for shade. There is a good selection of sites: shady, sunny, different hookups, views. There is no wifi. ATT and Verizon signals are good. We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There's a pleasant 2-mile trail around the campground, including along the lake. There's a small swim area at the bottom of a stairway from the top of the bluff to the lake.

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.
