Camped with my immediate family (daughters, future son in law, and infant granddaughter) this week. The campground is very nicely maintained and has nice amenities without being too “comfortable” for our tent camping family. The site had a slope but we made it work. Loved being so close to the lake even though access is no longer an option (we were aware of it because researched in advance). A lot of beautiful trails to walk along the Lang and across the road are many through the forest with abundance of wildlife. Only disappointment was the many campers who ignored the clear sign posted to wear masks when entering restrooms and the park office. Otherwise social distancing was respected and most were courteous of others as far as noise etc. there were a lot of dogs so I could have taken mine and not worried about the occasional barking she may have done. I marked choice Sites and many trails I was not able to walk so I can make the 2 hr drive in the future with my dog. We also loved the 10 minute trip to the beach at First street beach in Manistee. Beautiful Large beach with lighthouse, pavilions, snack bar, restrooms, close parking, and everyone maintained social distancing.

Ok as a campground. Not much of a playground for kids. Most people didn’t know there is no beach anymore, including our party. We couldn’t find anywhere on the website where it says the beach is no longer accessible although the office said it was on there. Website still says there’s a staircase that leads down to the beach and has pictures of it. Pretty disappointing. That was the biggest reason we booked with them.

Trails along the lake to walk, amazing views during the sunrise and sunset, across the street are trails to walk in the woods which are very beautiful.

We briefly stopped here to kill some time before heading to another location. It’s a beautiful little park, but since the beach is closed, it really seems just like a glorified campground. Views from the bluff are pretty out over the lake, and the camping amenities seem nice (although we didn’t actually camp here). Campsites aren’t secluded though - you’re definitely in full view of your neighbors. There are hiking trails across the road, but we didn’t have a chance to check those out.

This is more of a campground than a park. It was nice for a quick stop but we were dissapointed that there was no beach and lack of paths to walk.
