Very pretty views, numerous secluded picnic sites with lake views. Great place to unwind. You are supposed to be able to find Petoskey stones but we didn't have any luck.
This is a lovey, quiet state park. It's definitely off the beaten path and rustic, as others have noted. We didn't camp here (I don't do pit toilets!), but it was nice for a couple of hours. There's a lengthy dirt road (about two miles) that ends at a small parking lot with pits set into the woods. There are... More
Just there for the day. Parked at the end of the park road and hiked a half mile or so along the beach to the point on Lake Michigan. First few hundred yards were rocky and had light algae, but then it got sandy and crystal clear with sandbars creating bath like pools. Night quite as blue as you would... More
This is well off the beaten path. It is a long way in to the park and the roads are rough. There are pit toilets. We were hoping to find a place to fish, but never did due to my husband's disability. It is definitely for the healthy and strong people.

I had the most amazing time camping at Fisherman's Island State Park- I can't even express it enough (and this is coming from someone who wouldn't pick camping as her number one thing to do for a vacation)! The camping sites are very large, each one surrounded by enough trees to make you feel secluded and private, not to mention... More
While on vacation and looking for Petosky stones, someone suggested we try Fisherman's Island State Park. I have to say, it's a bit deceiving trying to find the place! It looks like you're headed down some rural road with houses, not like you're going to a state park! There are no signs at the initial turn off the main road.... More
