“Nice sites on Lake Huron with sandy beach”

Overall Rating

Large sites often separated by trees and undergrowth. Many sites in the North section have access to a very nice sandy beach. Surprisingly, for Lake Huron, the bottom is sandy in a good portion of the swimming area. Good Host on site who keeps the facilities stocked with teepee and reasonably clean. Most campers were very quiet and considerate but a few were running generators non stop during the day. There is a lot of swamp surrounding the campground but on our visit in late July there were very few bugs, even at dusk, so they may be spraying to reduce their numbers. Decent area for riding bicycles and taking walks. Only one of the hand pumps is functional and you will need a wide mouth container to catch the scattered outflow. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will definitely return in the future.

“Great if you can snag a beach site.”

Great campground on the shore of Thunder Bay. Several (15 or so) sites along the water with a great many more in the woods. Arrived on a Saturday and was able to get a beach site, less than a 50 yard walk to the water. Great sunrises over Lake Huron. My site (15) had a historical marker and a gravesite dated 1865, the only one in the park I found. Cool.
Typical state forest campground with only picknick table and fire ring, pit toilets. Entrance is in the back end of a residential area and is a bit off the beaten path.
You really need to grab a beach site!
