Grand Haven State Park Campground

Grand Haven State Park Campground Review

We traveled to Grand Haven State Park in June, 2019. When we booked the trip we hoped for sun and beach time. Instead, the weather was cool, cloudy, and very windy during our stay so we swapped out swim suits for sweatshirts and made the best of it. We didn’t have high expectations for this campground because we weren’t sure it was the right fit for us. Our family is...

Van Buren State Park Review

Van Buren State Park Campground Review

We traveled to South Haven, Michigan for our Van Buren State Park review in July, 2018. We love spending a summer weekend on the shores of Lake Michigan so we were excited for some beach time. Van Buren State Park isn’t one of the most popular parks in Michigan’s State Park system so we had somewhat low expectations. We had a fantastic weekend and we were really...

Lakeport State Park

Lakeport State Park Campground Review

We camped at Lakeport State Park in June, 2018. Over the last couple years, we’ve visited several campgrounds on the East side of Michigan including Harrisville State Park and Tawas Point State Park.

We liked this area of the state so much we visited Harrisville State Park the following year. Our Campsite at Tawas Point State...

Straits State Park is located on the North side of the Mackinac Bridge, just outside of Saint Ignace in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, which is nicknamed “God’s Country,” and for good reason! If you’re looking for a central location to use as a base camp to...

Sleepy Hollow State Park

Sleepy Hollow State Park Campground Review

We traveled to Sleepy Hollow State Park to write this review in May, 2018. Sleepy Hollow State Park is located in Laingsburg, Michigan just north of the Lansing area, making it a quick trip for us. Every time we head north for a camping destination we pass the Sleepy Hollow sign and think, “wow – we could already be there!” so we finally decided it was time to check...
