Charming Mackinaw Bridge view park

I often stop and eat my lunch in this park when on trips from the Upper Peninsula downstate. Well-maintained, wonderful views, fresh air!

This is a bit off the beaten path but worth the hunt to find it. The Mackinaw Bridge is in full view day or night. Ship watching can be perfect here also.

My family has been camping here for 60+ years and we love it. We get a site right on the water in the lower campground and the views are amazing. It is a great and relaxing vacation every year.

This was our first trip north of Big Mac. The views were amazing with a small child still in a stroller we could only do one of the two options of views offered. Still well worth it!

We accidentally discovered The Straights Park last year, and we regretted we only saw it at sunset. So this year, we made a point to visit again.

Doesn't get any better than this! Sits on Lake Eerie, has brand new bathroom and shower facilities, walking trails, shady campsites, and friendly staff. We love it here!

Just returned from a weekend trip to this State Park. This has to be an older park. The camp ground is divided into two camp ground; a lower camp ground and and upper camp ground. I originally had reserved a site in the lower camp ground to be closer to the lake. However, and because I have a 28 ft... More

Very nice view of the bridge, although the trees have grown in quite a bit. Sturdy picnic tables with trees for shade.
