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.

Campsite Fort Custer has two loops, the East...
