Usually we stay at State Parks so this was a bit different. The road thru the park is dirt. The bathrooms are newer and were kept very clean. Many lots are uneven and better for tents rather than RVs. Tents outnumbered RV’s when we were...More

This is not a resort campground. Your entertainment is the outdoors with dirt roads, campsites that you have to engineer level, and trails to walk to the beach. This is the campground for those who truly enjoy the the spirit of camping and the outdoors....More

This could be a great campground with an investment by the State of Michigan. As it is it appears to never have been updated. Dirt roads and I don't believe there is a level camp site in the entire campground. Who ever wrote the site...More

We have camped here a couple of times. This time we had one of the larger lake spots, so it was great. The campground is full every weekend, and the center sites get very crowded. Unfortunately a lot of people park way to large campers...More

I haven't fished there in some time. When I did it wasn't great. I was told this lake is over fished. Sorry I can't help.
