Good Campground
Sep. 2020
Nice park with about 100 sites but it still feels pretty small. Lake view sites are good. Most of the sites are a pretty good size. Pit toilets were cleaned daily. Enjoyed hearing boats of all kinds and size play on the lake.

For Those Who Love The ‘Rustic’ Style
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Pretty campground, no power. More for those who enjoy fishing or would like a very quiet time on the lake. Nice trails with nice views. Very tree covered. Looks like they do hold fishing tournaments. For us, it was kind of a ‘Deliverance’ vib. :)

This is one of the best State Parks in Michigan.
Jul. 2019
The sites are good size. There is no electric or water, but being right on Hardy Pond, it is an outstanding location. Wish there were better views of the Pond, but overall a great experience.

Great Rustic camping that is close by
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Great rustic sites. There is some hiking and disc golf. We did the hiking not golf. They have the pit pots and hand pumps for water. Not much swimming around and the water is pretty brown. Nice trees lining the campground. Sites are large enough for 2 big tents. No wood at campground so buy in the area before you get to the campsite.

Great rustic campground
Sep. 2017 • Family
We really enjoy this state park. It's a rustic state park but has water to boat or swim, trails to walk or biking. We typically come here about 1-2 times a year.

Average Camping Experience, Disc Golf was Fun
Jul. 2017 • Friends
We were three friends who went on a 2-night camping trip. The camp spots were smaller in size and not very private. No walking or hiking trails :(. We had our fun though, barbecued and got drunk :P One thing that made the trip a lot more fun was Disc golf course. We had never played disc golf before. So, we decided to try it out. We liked it so much that we came back one more time the next morning. It was an easy beginner level course, no cost, plus they had discs that they let us borrow free of charge. Overall fun times.

Fun Weekend!
Aug. 2017 • Family
Stayed here for a weekend, one site for my husband and I with our camper and another for my nephew and his girlfriend. The campsites are nicely spaced apart with good buffers between the sites. Our site we stayed at butted up to the disc golf and a path to the water which was fun. It was very quiet even with everyone sitting out at their fires and even with most people having kids and dogs. One site was getting rowdy and loud late at night but DNR running the site came around and quieted them down quickly. For a quick weekend get away we would absolutely go back! In fact my husband will be with our other nephews this week!

"Not an easy boat launch "
Jun. 2017 • Couples
Wanted to use recreational passport to launch boat into Hardy Pond. It is a unusual set up, shallow, and can only accommodate one boat at a time. It wasn't busy but we still had a bit of a wait to get our boat in and out of the water .Very limited space for mooring. The car/trainer parking is across the road. The county park offers boat launch for $6.00 per day and may be more convenient.
