This is a nice and clean campground. Each lot is reasonably priced and they have a fire pit too. The north end of the camp ground is a little quieter and family oriented. There is a little store in case you forgot something. The water...More

This is just about fifteen minutes from home for us. We generally go there several times from spring to fall, take a picnic lunch, hike the woodland trails some, and maybe go in for a swim. The little lake swimming area is very family friendly...More

Camping, swimming, kayaking, hiking, bike riding! My favorite place to camp...one of many Michigan campgrounds where you can camp directly on the water! 190 is my favorite spot! Halloween weekends are fun for all! We have been going for 15 years!

Nice, clean, and quiet! I would take my kids here anytime!! The bathrooms were well taken care of. There is a nice concession stand where you can buy snacks and drinks. The beach area was also very well taken care of, very clean.

You get harassed for anything louder than a whisper when you are just trying to have a nice time with your family at a reasonable level of sound. The grounds are not very well maintained and the beach is nothing special at all. The campground...More

The park hosts and DNR go all out. Great family atmosphere for safe, fun and outdoor activity. The campsites are spaced out far enough that you're not on top of your neighbors, but not so far apart that you have to walk a mile to...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.
