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

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