Hopkins Park is operated by the city of Bear Lake. It is my favorite municipal park in Michigan. The quoted rate of $15 is for lake front. The rate off the lake is $13 and they have both monthly and annual rates. There are stores nearby to fulfill any needs that you might have. In compliance with "Nancy's Law" the park has replaced its playground equipment with safer equipment. The electrical service was updated in 2000 because of increasing demand by larger units. The restroom is immaculate with pay showers. There is a covered pavilion with picnic tables and there is a small swimming beach in the camp with a larger one a block down the road. There is a public boat launch and trailer parking. Of course there's a dumping station.
The park is well run with very friendly folks both in charge and camping. Bear lake is a small town within very easy driving distance from major tourist attractions like Sleeping Bear dunes, Traverse City and the cherry festival. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
