We live nearby and use this State Park as our getaway on a regular basis. There are two campgrounds, Lake Michigan and Channel. We prefer Channel Campground by far. There are two loops at Channel, and we prefer Loop 2 which has much larger sites and 50 amp service. Sites in Loop 2 are generous size, are well spaced and many have views of Muskegon Lake. Most sites are back-in, but navigating should not be a problem for most. Sites in Loop 1 are smaller and that loop is a bit tighter to navigate a larger rig. Some sites in Loop 1 back up to the Muskegon Channel to Lake Michigan and provide hours of boat watching. Canoes and kayaks can easily be launched along the Muskegon Lake shoreline, with beautiful routes to Snug Harbor, Harbortown Condos, the Muskegon Lake Channel, and out to Lake Michigan on a calm day. There is a large, uncrowded public beach on Lake Michigan (about 1/4 mile from the campground) with ample parking. Some people park their RV in the back of the beach lot and enjoy a day at the beach. Sites are paved, but narrow (wide enough for your rig and one vehicle). There is beach sand and dune grass surrounding most sites. There are many hiking trails in the park, dunes to climb, the channel break wall to walk, and great Lake Michigan sunsets to enjoy. Pleasure boats and commercial freighters use the channel and are interesting to watch. Bathrooms and showers are kept clean, but are in need of remodeling. This is really my only complaint about the campground. The park is very busy on summer weekends and reservations can be made 6 months in advance. However, we have often been able to get in by snagging a last minute cancellation. The park is a great place to kick back and enjoy everything a Michigan summer day has to provide! We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground was a disappointment in many ways. Sites advertised as on the water are really, at best, only water view through dense foliage, and there are very few of these. This is an older state park that was not designed for big rigs. It was hard to negotiate the campground roads with a 37' motorhome plus toad. The sites are very small and close together. In addition to the $30 camping fee, Michigan fleeces tourists by charging a park access fee, $30 for the year or a daily rate which was $8, so camping here was really $38. I also found the website for the Michigan State Parks to be very user unfriendly and lacking in essential information. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the lakefront site a mile or so north of the riverfront site. Lucked out with a very nice walk-up site 200' from the beach. Sites were un-level hard packed sand and very shady just behind the dunes. Nice stairs to beach. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.

We found the campground Pleasant. It was one of the quietest state parks we have ever visited. Pets were present but none were unruly as in some parks. The campsites are mostly sandy and that sand is very dirty. The asphalt pads are nice but, at 10 foot wide, your picnic table neither fits on the pad or else is not under your awning. Lots of pull through sites. Channel campground loop 1 was our favorite. Channel campground had a lot of rigs. Our stay was pleasant. Not the best ever but not bad either. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in the "Channel Campground" and loved it. Great paved pads to park on, great fire rings, great location right on the channel between Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake. Great walking trails. Very clean and "nautical" feel. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.

You won't find many campers here mid week in the middle of April. For the price one might expect at least a few more threaded faucets. There were non. Had to use the water thief one of the few taps available. Very time consuming. Large well spaced sites. At least 20amp power would have been nice for the price too.

We stayed in the Channel Campground, 1st loop. There are some sites that have a view of the channel. The Channel Campground, 2nd loop have some sites that have a view of Muskegon Lake. We drove through the Lake Michigan Campground section which is more wooded, but didn't care for it as much. The sites seemed smaller to us. We also noticed there were more tents there than anything else. We would recommend staying in either of the Channel loops. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Decent enough facilities for a state park, in a very attractive area of the country, but the roads in the area (including the highly touted scenic drive) are pathetic to the point of being dangerous. The residents of Michigan should be ashamed and should demand action. If they're that lacking for public funds, I would donate to the cause. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.

Large sites and beautiful scenery. We were surprised how few people were on the beaches. Very quiet and relaxing. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Tent.

We camped in the channel campground section of this park. The lake campground section is down the road about 2 miles. We had a site overlooking Muskegon Lake. We really liked the area, being able to enjoy both Muskegon lake and Lake Michigan. They are having problems with pine beetles and a lot of the pine trees have been cut down and left for campers to use as firewood. Fortunately there are oak and cottonwood trees, so there is still shade. We will definitely return. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.

There is the channel campground and the Lake Michigan campground. We've stayed at the Lake Michigan campground once and it was a bit hilly on some sites. Our favorite part is the Channel campground. You can watch the big ships come in from Lake Michigan to Muskegon Lake. You can swim in Muskegon Lake or Lake Michigan. The beaches are very nice. Lots of sand dunes and such to play in. This is one of our favorites. We camped at Muskegon State Park in a Motorhome.
