We spent 10 days there and it’s became an annual trip now. The beach is super nice and with the trees you can sit on the beach in the shade of a tree. The sites are good size so you don’t feel crowded. The bike trail weaves throughout the park and you can take it all the way into town. Just be careful because unlike the rest of the park the trail needs repaired big time a few spots are as bad as I’ve seen on any trail so just be careful

We live in southern Ohio and rest of family in middle of Michigan, so we met in the middle here. Great spot for us to all be together. There are no shade trees but everyone had awnings. Saturday was super windy (not sure if Lake provides more breezes than normal) so some awnings got put away and then no shade. All in all great place. Some people mention the Coal towers, honestly you forget they are there. We actually kept saying they reminded us of the twin towers

Out Of State Beware
Cost for a 30 amp is $28 + $9 entry fee. Then add on reservation fee of $8 per booking. If staying one night $45. Go to a private park is cheaper. Do they think they’re Washington State?

Very Nice State Park
We stayed through the week and were very happy with this campground. Showers and bathrooms were clean and well cared for. Great view of Lake Erie and just a short walk to the beach. No shade anywhere but that’s the only negative I could see so you’ll want AC in the summer.

Peaceful During The Week
Stayed at the campground for 7 nights. We found, the best time to camp here is during the week, the park is much peaceful. Thursday afternoon, the campground fills up with the locals bringing in their boats and additional vehicles. By Saturday, add the guests vehicles onto their site. We've counted as much as 4 vehicles on one site! Signs are posted '2 vehicles per site' but not enforced. We watched the DNR drive through but, do nothing. Never saw the Camp Host once. Cars and boats parked everywhere! Very chaotic on the weekend! Listened to loud rap music coming somewhere from a camper behind us. No garbage cans to toss doggie-do in, plan on carrying it with you during your entire walk. Kids are allowed battery operated scooters and hoverboards... wonder if golf carts are allowed for adults? For the locals, we observed it's a great place for a weekend party. For those transiting, one or two nights during the middle of the week is perfect! Nice view of Lake Erie.

Level pull-thru full hook up site. Did not meet the camp hosts but can tell they are great (water bowl at the poop bag station, can collection to help defray the cost of activities, and even a little library where you can take a book and leave a book). Bathhouse is nice and clean with individual shower rooms. The beach is beautiful and very accessible from the campground. Lots of paved paths to run, walk or ride a bike. Even though there isn't much shade still give 5stars. Would come again!
*** be sure to bring a narrow adaptor for electric box. The plastic housing around the outlet may not fit your plug. We had to use two adaptors in order to get solid connection. Just a heads up.....

great state park with fhu
this park has been cleaned up and redone because of this it lacks mature trees within the actual campsites but the surrounding areas and public areas are all very wooded. Right on Lake Erie with boating, fishing, biking, and swimming accessible just a short walk from your site. some fhu pull thru sites and modern clean bath houses. mostly HUGE sites compared to other local parks. summer Ranger led programs. well maintained paved bike paths and hiking trails.

Our Annual Labor Day Weekend Destination
Love this place. Great layout. Miles and miles of paved trails. Trails also link up to the River Raisin National Battlefield Park. The only Michigan State Park on Lake Erie.
