I went during harvest weekend and it was great! Although it was raining on and off, the campground host provided entertainment . The trick n treating for kids was awesome. I would do it again. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We picked here because it was close to family. Nice park - a little noisy with late (after 10) night activities (People sitting around fires talking, kids riding bikes to bathrooms, etc) but not bad. Our particular site wasn't grassy and had lots of sand/dirt - but it was underneath a large shade tree. Can't have everything! The campers behind us brought an Xmas laser projector and it looked like the whole tree had fireflies in it - pretty cool. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

I have never stayed in such a CLEAN state park!!! The restrooms were immaculate!!! It seemed that staff was constantly cleaning them. Individual showers with great temperature control was much appreciated. The sites were small and there was not much privacy between sites, but we thoroughly enjoyed the friendliness of the campground host and the activities that were offered. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Tent Trailer.

Since we are out-of-state price includes $32 yearly recreation permit and $7 vehicle permit (car) for this stay. If you have any kind of large rig (35 ft or up) good luck getting level. Warning - campground is simply placed on slope (7 to 10 degrees or more) down to lake. While sites are wide and long we had to park parallel to and down near road to get level. Which means we paid for a 50 amp site but had to run a 35 ft 50 amp cord and then our 30 amp extension of about 40 feet to hook up to electric. Some one NEEDS to do work on these camp sites to get a level parking place at each site. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Sites are plenty wide but not very level. Hard to get our 39' motorhome level enough to put out slides. Finally wound up with front wheels off ground. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Proud Lake is a Michigan State Campground. The staff was excellent, helpful and friendly even as we tried out 3 different sites. Sites are on grass and not level. Some are 30 amp and some are 50 amp. No water or sewer on site. Campground has nice bathhouse and the dump station/water fill station, with 3 lanes, was convenient. We enjoyed time spent on the grassy beach area on Proud Lake; kids were swimming in the lake. A private canoe/kayak rental company is on site.
Beware of your directions: the Wixom Road address is the park headquarters about a mile away from the campground on Proud Lake Rec Road. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

It's a pretty park with many mature trees. They are making quite a few updates. The one bath house in the park is new with very nice, private showers - some with toilets. The negatives outweigh the positives though. Many sites are very uneven, and I couldn't get my trailer completely level. Also, there is no playground, although the campground was full of kids. People were literally stumbling down the streets drunk our first night. There were many vault toilets which could be smelled a couple of sites away. Overall, we were not impressed and won't be heading back. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Great stop for a state park. Only hookup is electrical however, but the showers were great and restrooms clean. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is not that great. It is clean, but the sites are mostly sunny. You definitely do not get the "camping" feeling being here. The beach was the biggest disappointment of all. It is basically a grassy area that had a small patch of sand put there. The swimming area is marked off with buoys and it is small. The bathrooms were clean but there was NO HOT WATER AT ALL. Their electrical outlet would not support the amount of electricity that my pop up camper needed to run lights, fans, etc., so it kept overloading. Not the best experience. We left a day early. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Tent Trailer.

Sites are big and campground clean. The reason I gave the mid-grade was the bathroom. They were not clean and there was no hot water in the shower. I know it is a state park, but bugs everywhere all the time is too much. People were nice. The roads were in good shape for a state Park. We camped at Proud Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
