Great swimming beach and campground. We were going to have a family gathering. Their Red Barn facility is available for rent. You can also rent paddleboats and kayaks. Nice camp store. Fun time around Halloween also.

Explored this Michigan park and was very pleasantly surprised. There is swimming at this location and many campsites for trailers. Uncrowded park, lovely.

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

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.

You have to have the state park pass. A day pass is available or you can get a year pass.
