Starve Hollow is a State Park. It has a beautiful lake. There are several primitive sites right on the lake. You can basically fish from your front door. We were told by the rangers that by next year, there will also be electric sites by the lake. The nature center center, lake, beach, boat house are within walking distance of the campground. The campground itself is wonderful. Lots of shade trees. All sites are paved, inc. picnic table area. The bathhouses are kept very clean. Each shower has individual changing area. This has definitely become a favorite park that I will be returning to frequently.
We camped here as a one night stop over. It is very close to the interstate and very easy to find. It is good for a short stay but not for a long stay. Sites are extremely close together and not level. There is not any shade. Over 3/4 of the park is seasonal. The bathrooms were very small but clean. Each shower had it's own changing area. It has a nice campstore, game room with small TV and large laundry room. Owners / workers were very nice.
We loved the campground. Lots of shade trees, level sites, grassy areas, lots of room between sites. The pool is adjacent to the CG. Cost $3.00 for the day, large pool with slides and lifeguards. Reason for rating 9: Men's showers are open (locker style). Women's showers were very nice with individual changing rooms. Wonderful trails to walk. We took scooters and had lots of places to ride. We will definitely camp here again.
We stayed at this campground via brochure at the Welcome Center. Unfortunately we knew nothing prior to this campground. After arriving home and looking this CG up, we too had same "bad" experiences. We arrived on Thursday evening. Young lady in office was super nice!! She told us she put us in a large site at the back of the CG. We arrived at our site to find we had sand/dirt instead of grass. We had told her we had a large dog. After reading rules, we learned only small dogs were allowed. I guess we were the exception. First day everything seemed fine. Second day we got a dose of the security. We parked one tire on the grass. We were told we were not to park on the grass. So therefore the front end of our truck stuck out in the road. Every hour security went by and literally stared us down. They would drive so close to our site: and look over in our yard. I think they were looking for "dog waste." At check-in, we were told we must pick up after our dog. We always do anyway. Some other crazy rules are: you can't park backwards in a site, you can't ride you bike in front of the office or the road that runs in front of the CG. Fortunately for us, we did spend a lot of time in Frankenmuth and at the Outlets in Birch Run and not at the CG. We will definitely not be visiting this CG again.
Very nice state park. We camped in Loop B which have the largest sites I have ever seen. Lots of shade. Park has lots to offer: Pool (in season) with slide, boat rental (canoes & paddle boats), Saddle Barn with Hayrides on Friday & Saturday nights, camp store, nice playground. It is a very family oriented park. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was due to the bathrooms. My husband said we would not like them, so therefore we used the shower and toilet in our camper. I trust his opinion :)
