Stayed two nights in the lower campground site 102 to view the bridge at night. The site was OK but in the forested area muddy and damp. We moved up to 169 in the top campground and it is great. You need to fill with fresh water at the RV dump at the entrance to the either camp. We will always stay here when in this area. We camped at Straits State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A typical well cared for Michigan state park. If you're a resident the annual passport for state parks is $11. A quirk in the system is that motor-coach owners have to buy a pass for both the coach and the toad while trailer towers only need a pass for the tow vehicle. If you're not a resident of Mi the annual pass is $39 per vehicle. Verizon mifi is the strongest we have encountered. Will stay here whenever in the area. We camped at Straits State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here twice. First time when arriving in the Upper Peninsula and the second time before returning to lower Michigan. On our first visit we stayed in the lower section to the left at the bottom of the hill. The section is good, yet hilly and the sites vary widely in levelness. This section is quieter as it is farther from I-75. There are tremendous views of the Mackinac Bridge and the Straits of Mackinac. The sunsets are spectacular. St. Ignace is a quiet tourist town that we found much more enjoyable than Mackinaw City. All three boat companies offer service to Mackinac Island from St. Ignace. The second time we stayed on the upper level. The sites are larger, more level and many pull thrus. Verizon cell/MIFI extremely strong. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in site #254 in the Upper Campground. There was plenty of room and a couple of nice walking paths. Though the freeway (I-75) was a few hundred feet away, we could hardly hear it. Verizon cell was good and Verizon LTE was also good. A well-cared for park. We camped at Straits State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here many times and just love this park. Although the big rig section is not near the water, the sites are gravel and fairly level. My Verizon 4G aircard attained download speeds of 30mbps and upload speeds to 15mbps. The rate was higher due to the reservation surcharge of $8. We camped at Straits State Park in a Motorhome.

Absolutely in love with this park. Stayed in site #225, large corner pull through site in the upper campground. Most of the sites over here are well shaded, private and have a nice gravel camping pad. Really glad we chose the upper side: no way we could have navigated the lower (lake view) area with our rig (38" fifth wheel). There were some larger spots, but getting around down there and trying to navigate parking would have proved difficult. Upper had only a few other campers so we enjoyed a peaceful weekend. The 1-mile walking trail from upper sites to bridge overlook was nice and appreciated. We got some amazing photos. Already planning a return trip this summer.

Nice roomy gravel sites accessed by asphalt roads.  Sites on Lake Huron were separated from the rocky wet beach by a thin area of bushes.  Our site was the closest to the lake with electricity, and was one of the few sites with brush separating it from neighbors.  We enjoyed the views of the Mackinac Bridge from the lake, and from the overlook.  We used the laundromat in town.  We spent a day exploring the Lake Huron lake shore.  Our second day was spent on Mackinac Island, hiking the paths, exploring Fort Mackinaw, taking the  horse-drawn carriage tour, and enjoying the ferry rides.  It was nice to have bins to recycle plastic, metal, glass, and paper - the first state park campground to take all these.  We hope to come back. We camped at Straits State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A gorgeous campsite. Who can argue with a view of Lake Huron from your bedroom? We stayed in the lower loop that is closest to the bridge. Yes, there is traffic noise, but fairly constant, so you get used to it. We had a 50 amp site, back-in, grassy, fairly level. Good antenna TV and AT&T cell signal. The showers here were the best I've ever seen in a state park, individual rooms, fully tiled, well-designed, clean, and plenty of hot water. We have a great shower in the trailer, so I rarely venture out, but these showers were worth it. Only drawback for us were the zillion campfires. Most campsites are back-to-back and there is no escape from your neighbor's fire. If you are sensitive to wood smoke, you will have a problem, at least in the busy months. Otherwise, this is a wonderful place, with a grocery store within walking distance and the charming town of St. Ignace to explore. We camped at Straits State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the upper campground, sites 254 & 256, due to the size of our travel trailers. The noise from I-75 was not too much for sleeping or enjoying the trails and views of the Mighty Mac. Saturday St. Ignace had a free concert and we ate at one of the many restaurants in town. A grocery was just outside the park as were all other types of shops. Stayed here due to Silver Mtn. Disc Golf course closeness, and enjoyed walking the area for two days. Park was very clean, grassy, shaded, with the classic UP feel. Power level was good and got several clear TV stations. Good cell reception. We camped at Straits State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Again this is one of the nicest "big rig" parks in the MI state park system. We have stayed here many times and the park is always clean and well maintained. If you camp in the early spring, the rate is only $16. We camped at Straits State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest state parks in the MI system. Big rig pull through sites are easy to pull in and leave and relatively level. Verizon has a cell tower almost next to the park so the cell phone internet signal is exceptional. Download speeds at 3G were in excess of 100k per sec. We stayed here 6 times this summer and will stay next year also. We camped at Straits State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first stay at this campground. We were in the upper level, which was very quiet and relaxing. Good views of the bridge were within walking distance. As others have stated, lock your personal belongings up at night. We were fortunate and only lost a towel. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Straits State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is daily rate for a 50 amp electric pull through site in the upper level. Roads are asphalt, site gravel with grass between sites. Sites are relatively close together in the lower section, further apart in the upper section. Lower section has a far higher occupancy rate than the upper section. The pull thru sites were open and we had excellent satellite and Verizon reception in site 128. Park has a dump station for each section and they are laid out so it is easy to dump either on the way in or way out. We would stay here again. We camped at Straits State Park in a Motorhome.

Several campers (including us) had their ice chests stolen from their site overnight during our stay here. Apparently this is common at this park--so lock up your cooler when you turn in for the night! No water at sites so fill up when you arrive--there is potable water at the sanitation station. Big rigs are no problem at the upper campground, where we stayed, but I would not want to try to get into the lower campground with one. Upper is much quieter, lower is busy--lots of families and tent campers. There is access to the lake from the lower campground, but it is an easy walk from the upper campground also. Convenient location for exploring Mackinac Island & Soo Locks Area. Out of state visitors will need a MI parks permit $29, but it gets you into all the state parks. We camped at Straits State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate reflects the daily vehicle charge. Can't fault the park itself for anything in particular. The interior roads are only 10' wide and if you have a tall moho or 5'er, you had better look up as you drive around. The lower loops are doable with a large rig if you a careful. With the wind in the wrong direction there is a very noticable noise of traffic on the bridge. Also the bridge maintenance yard borders one of the lower loops. That can also be noisy to that loop.
