This park is nice and very quiet for as busy as it is. Fishing has several piers into the lake and the lake is large enough for all boating activities. Most sites were large enough and were arranged so groups can 'circle the wagons'. The only problem was the mosquitoes which were very bad. We camped at Yankee Springs Gun Lake-Modern Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Shopping was 10 miles away but a good selection of stores. Several small eateries within 3 miles.
We very much enjoyed our stay and Yankee Springs. The sites were big and wooded, the beach and fishing pier were very excellent. The playground was a bit dated but the kids still enjoyed it. My only complaint was the lack of water to each site. We knew that going in but it was a bigger issue for us than we originally thought it would be. Also I expected parking for my tow vehicle would have been included but it wasn't so I had to pay an extra $24 for a season parking permit.

Nightly rate includes $8 non MI resident fee. This large campground would likely be noisy during peak season, but was very quiet at this offseason time. Restrooms/showers are not yet open. Only a few sites on water but there is a large sandy area for beach games. Has limited waterfront access. Could have a boat at some sites. Has a very nice view across large lake.

We stayed here in mid April, though it was a little chilly, the park itself was pretty empty except for people camping for the same event. The bathroom were clean and park officials where very accommodating. This is a state park and a must stay. We camped at Yankee Springs Gun Lake-Modern Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground doesn't have all of the bells and whistles, but it is a great family atmosphere. It has an excellent beach for swimming especially with small children because the water is so shallow. It is a great recreation lake and has many activities in the surrounding area. We camped at Yankee Springs Gun Lake-Modern Campground in a Motorhome.
