All 90 foot concrete pads and a lot of space between sites. Right on the lake so you can walk the beach. City run and the facilities are all new and state of the art. The folks staying here are in very nice rigs, very safe and quiet. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

I have to agree with the previous reviewers, this is a near-perfect RV Park. Right on the lake shore. Everything is clean and first quality. A little expensive, but worth it. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice paths down to the lake shore. There's a boardwalk and breakwater that you can walk out on. But, when we were there the waves were crashing over the breakwater, but it made for some spectacular wave watching.

This place deserves 10 stars. We are full time in a 44' and this is the easiest park to get in and out of. Like everyone else says the park design is fantastic with great utilities. Cable TV worked OK with the usual channels but they are all standard definition. ATT and Verizon have good coverage. Surprisingly, the water tested slightly hard but not bad. We use a water softener but would have been fine without it. Didn't use the showers but they were large and clean. Large fire ring with a removable grill on top. Never saw one like this before. They look like a drain culvert pipe converted to a fire pit. The sites on the water can be windy. We had a site backed to the big hill with the highway on the other side so there is some road noise but it wasn't a distraction. They do not accept mail here so we used General Delivery at the nearby post office which went smoothly. I would say here forever if I could. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

We went to Mackinac Island (an all day trip), Oswalds Bear Sanctuary, and Taquamenon Falls State Park. Recommend them all. There is a grocery up the street with a home store next to it. We ate at the Big Boys restaurant which is sorta like a Denny's. It was good.

This a new (year old) park right on the shore of Lake Michigan. The sites are spacious and well equipped. Roads are paved and easy to navigate. Spotless restrooms and showers. Hiking trails and walking paths lead to the beach, a playground, a covered pavilion and a long boardwalk over the lake. Laundry room is small but very clean. Check in is simple and quick. Free WiFi and cable TV. Complimentary coffee in the office. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The secret is out and people are arriving in droves at this wonderful campground. They got it right when they designed and built this park. From the three long parking spots in front of the office, the wide loop road through the park, the angled paved sites, to the immaculately clean bathhouse and laundry-every detail has been well thought out. Every site is long enough for any rig plus tow vehicle. Pads are cement with asphalt approach. There is a gravel pad for an extra vehicle. Picnic table and fire pit are in a gravel area. Just the right amount of natural foliage was left between lots for privacy. The utility posts are substantial and hooks are convenient-lighted at night for late arrivals. The amenities feel like a pricy private park-the ambience feels like your favorite state park. Located just off US-2 overlooking Lake Michigan and the Manistique Lighthouse. We stayed for one night last year-brought two other couples this year for 3 nights-already booked for 9 nights next year. Undoubtedly the BEST campground in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Convenient location to explore many UP attractions or just kick back and relax! We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is very nice. There is a large sign directing you in, a big help while getting off a two lane busy road. The park should be a model for parks, with paved roads, cement parking pads, great utilities, excellent water pressure, and plenty of space in sites. A negative for our site 16 was the front of site faces sand dunes, with highway on the other side, and an obnoxious street light that lights up campsite. A fact of RVing is plans change. Most parks either allow for free modifications or cancellations or charge a minimal fee. This park charges you one day's fee, $40, for changes any time after you reserve. We made changes months prior to our visit, so we know. I would have made a second change, but just decided if I needed to leave a day early, no reason to tell anyone as I would get charged no matter what. It is a very popular park, and I did note the days I canx. were filled almost immediately, resulting in a double payment for the park. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

We pulled in to check out this new park. The sites are amazing, wide, and long. Some spots back up to the lake. The utilities are placed well. Some sites have views of the lighthouse. The park is conveniently located and cell service is available. Each site has it's own concrete patio. The price is steep. Its $50 for a pull thru full hookup site, $45 for.a Lakeview back in site, and $40 for an interior back-in. However, it is a picture perfect location.

This is a wonderful campground and I agree with all the other reviewers. Their online reservation system is outstanding and you can easily see what sites are open with a picture for each one. Their wifi is excellent. The bathrooms are great. Each shower is a separate room with a bench, several places to hang things and a shelf in the shower....well thought out! We had a beautiful site that backed up to the lake with a view of the lighthouse. We even had wild blueberries beside us. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground! One year old park well laid out lots of room between spaces, room for 2 cars at each site. Sites paved and level, shaded. Nice fire ring and picnic table. Bathrooms are extremely clean always people in cleaning. Individual large shower rooms. One large family shower/bathroom. Only downside is sawdust that washes up on beach. In the late 1800's the lumber companies dumped 50 million tons of sawdust in the lake. It is still washing up. Some days better than others. Very close to lots of places to see and things to do. Indian Lake State Park is close with a warm shallow lake for swimming and boating. There are several places close along highway to pull off and swim in Lake Michigan. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

Wow. What a park. Large paved level sites and clean gravel patio with table & fire pit. Mowed lawn. Large sites with max privacy. Roads are asphalt trimmed with gravel. Sites 24 and up are either on Lake Michigan or across the road. Great views and breezes. Ultra clean toilets showers & laundry. Sites cleaned after each camper. Everything said in other reviews is correct. It does not get any better. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

This is truly an excellent campground and we only wish it was closer to our home. We stayed here on our trip east (site 19) and again on the way home (site 30). Bo6th were great, but being backed up to the shore in 30 was just a little better! There is a strong wind off the lake this evening and the sound of the waves on the shore is quite loud. The previous reviews did a great job of describing this park. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

What a wonderful CG! It's hard to believe this is a municipal CG as it was well planned, built and is perfectly maintained. The sites are full hook-up, concrete, extra-long and absoutely level. There is a seperate gravel parking space at each site. The fire rings are unique in my camping experience. The CG is located on the north shore of Lake Michigan and everyone has access to the beach. There is also a large pavillion for group events. The wi-fi is excellent and the cable provides 30 channels. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

This has been our favorite campground this season! Nestled in amongst Lake Michigan, we were fortunate enough to hear the waves crash every night, and the breeze coming from the lake kept the bugs away and made the temperature very comfortable. Our site, 25, was right across the little path to the lake and we had some small but beautiful views of the lake. The lighthouse is just a short walk away. This is a municipal campground that opened last year, but it's beautiful and well maintained. We always saw staff working. We hated to leave today.

A rare "10" of "10" for this park. After almost 9 years of full timing this is one of the few 10s we have ever given out, however, if all of the others were a "10", this campground is an "11". It is a relatively new park, just open last year, and since built from scratch it is laid out just like we would design a park. Very big rig friendly, asphalt streets, concrete pads, gravel patios and wide spaces between sites. This is our new favorite park. GPS brought us right to the park but said the park was on the left, which was a waste treatment facility. There was a sign telling us to turn right to the park. As mentioned above a nice new park with convenient hookups. There are a lot of trees but we were lucky to convey our desire for a satellite friendly site and we were lucky to get one. Why it didn't get an "11", and mind you these are minor nits. The park is expensive, expensive, expensive - but location, location, location. The park is laid out with 4 pull-thrus, the rest are backins. All the lakefront backins are right shoulder or blind side which are a little more difficult than a left shoulder where Bob can watch how bad he backs up. Plus it would be nice if you could get mail here. Even though it didn't get that "11" we are already talking about when we can get back up here and how long we can stay. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
