“Great for exploring Whitefish Point”

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 4 days while exploring the Whitefish Point area. Nice wooded sites, sandy lakeshore with swimming area. Water, pit toilets and garbage disposal are the only amenities. If you depend on solar, there are a few sites that are sufficiently clear to charge panels. We were able to make do by deploying our portable panel and moving it around throughout the day.

This is a State DNR campground which requires you to purchase a "Passport" ($9/day or $31 for an annual pass for out-of-state vehicles in 2016). The Passport is required at all Michigan DNR or State Parks, so if you're planning to be in the State for more than 3 days it makes sense to purchase an annual.

Perfect place and location for visiting Whitefish Point Lighthouse, Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and bird sanctuary. Just south of Andrus Lake is the town of Paradise with limited shopping, eating and fuel. Nice friendly people everywhere.

Campsites are dirt and sand, no elec, water and bathrooms available. Tables and fire rings at sites. Beautiful place in the fall.
