Full disclosure: we didn’t stay here overnight but came for the day and happen to check it out.

This is essentially parking lot camping with hookups. Everyone is jam packed and your site is just pavement.

The sites that are on the outside have direct access to the sand and views of Lake Michigan and the lighthouse- but if you are on the interior it’s not so great.

You are close enough to town that you could bike or even walk.

Cell service is fine, bathrooms are decent

If you camp here be aware that you WILL meet your neighbor because there's no way of avoiding them. The spots are so tight that we couldn't park our truck in the site. You also get to hear your neighbor's conversations no matter how quiet they talk.
The entrance is a bit hard to spot but if you pass it (like we did) the next driveway is easy to turn around in and is part of the state park so they don't mind. The roads are paved to get in as well as the pad you park on. It's hard to park due to how cramped everything is and being extremely close together. But the site was almost perfectly level and the electricity was reliable even though the campground was packed.
It's situated on a lovely beach where you can walk out for quite a way without the water going above your hips! The campground is right at the lighthouse and its a short walk to it (beautiful at sunset).
The town is close and there are lots of breweries and restaurants to keep you busy.
