“Tranquility On The Leelanau Peninsula”

Reviewed 1/13/2021

Days stayed: 2
Site Number: 49
Overall Rating

This park provides basic no frills camping at the tip of a wonderful peninsula. This is a quiet park with no hookups. The sites are mostly shaded and the tent campers outnumbered the RV's during our stay in October. Every site is close to the water and the lighthouse. The roads are unpaved. In other words, the campground is fine. The Leelanau peninsula is amazing with wineries, orchards, roadside fruit stands and gorgeous hiking in the sand dunes and along the impossibly blue Lake Michigan as well as the Grand Traverse Bay. The town of Northport is a ten minute drive south for a morning stop at Barb's Bakery. There are not many camping options on the peninsula and if you can do without water and electric for a couple of days, this is the place to be.

“Rustic relaxation”

Reviewed 5/25/2016

Nightly rate: $22
Days stayed: 3
Site Number: 22
Overall Rating

Very nice sites that are large. Most are wooded and offer privacy. Site 22 sits slightly above the water and has a little landing accessible by a small foot trail. We have returned to the site a few times to stay since it is so close to Traverse City, Leeland/Glen Arbor and the wineries.

Notes to mention: This is a rustic location and is treated similarly to "radio free" at night. Our neighboring site was ticketed for playing the baseball game on the radio at 7pm. We could just barely hear it, and not many campers were on site that weekend, but it is still enforced.
