Mears State Park

Mears State Park Campground Review

We’ve traveled to Mears State Park in Pentwater, Michigan several times and it is still one of our favorites.

Holland State Park

Holland State Park Campground Review

We headed to the Lake Macatawa unit of Holland State Park for a quick weekend trip in August, 2017. We enjoyed a Memorial weekend there in 2016 so we thought we’d try it out again.

Bay City State Park Campground Review

Harrisville State Park Campground Review

Harrisville State Park has been our camping “bucket list” since we started camping. After scoring a lakefront site on cancellation in 2017 we knew we had to go back! We returned over the July 4th holiday and stayed for an entire week in 2018. We lucked out with AMAZING weather and it was definitely our best vacation yet! We had such a great time that we actually only...
