This is more like a state park than a privately owned campground. The pluses are the sites are heavily wooded and it is situated on Lake Huron. But the level of the lake was low so there were wide stretches of unappealing coastline. The showers are lousy. There is no temperature control; the shower is either "on" or "off". The water shuts off automatically after a few minutes so you must constantly turn it back on. Shower curtains were missing on 3 out of the 4 showers. Many sections of the roads are all dirt with no gravel. We camped at Castle Rock Campark in a Motorhome.
Fee includes $8 day use fee. We really enjoyed this very basic state park. Our site was perfectly fine, but the views of the bridge were gorgeous. It was especially lovely as the sun set. Not a terribly dog-friendly park--no good "official" exercise areas (and no dogs on the beach--too bad we didn't see that sign until after we'd been once). Bridge traffic is audible, but not bad at all. We would return, but wish campers were not assessed the additional day use fee. We camped at Castle Rock Campark in a Motorhome.
Although this park is listed as big rig friendly, you need to be very careful of the trees. It took a couple of 3 point corners for our 38 ft RV to successfully navigate the roads to our site. Exiting the park was extremely easy though. Large sites were very wooded and grassy. We were charged an extra $5 per night to run our air conditioner even though they only had 30 amp power. The price without the air was $30. We camped at Castle Rock Campark in a Motorhome.

Most sites are shady, with trees between sites providing privacy. Many sites are small, basically tent sites, but a few would accommodate a big rig (one 40 foot motorhome in the park now). Staff very friendly. Convenient to Hwy 75 and Mackinac Island. Nice views of Lake Huron. We camped at Castle Rock Campark in a Fifth Wheel.
