Camp Cadillac Campground Review

We traveled to Camp Cadillac in Cadillac, Michigan in July, 2019. Bobbi, the owner of Camp Cadillac, invited us to visit and review her campground over the winter. After checking out the details on their website we knew it was a great fit for our family.  Bobbi and her husband are awesome, hands-on campground owners/hosts. It’s obvious that they want to...

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...

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 enjoy that the Lake Huron beaches tend to be less crowded than Lake Michigan beaches. And, call us crazy but sometimes we like the rocky shorelines. Rock hunting adds...

Tawas Point State Park

Tawas Point State Park Campground Review

We visited Tawas Point State Park in July, 2016. We added this campground to our “must visit” list because we were really hoping to explore the east side of Michigan and Lake Huron and the promises of almost-Lake-Michigan-like-sandy beaches. We liked this area of the state so much we visited Harrisville State Park the following year. Our Campsite at Tawas Point State...

Seven Lakes State Park

Seven Lakes State Park Campground Review

We were looking for a quick trip last fall so we booked a spot at Seven Lakes State Park at the Sand Lake campground because of its proximity to Lansing. When we booked it looked like we’d be one of the few visitors that weekend. We were expecting all-day campfires, cooler temperature, and lots of bike riding for the kids. We were completely wrong! Instead, we found...

Hoffmaster State Park

PJ Hoffmaster State Park Campground Review

UPDATE: We visited Hoffmaster State Park again in May, 2018. It was our first visit to the park in the Spring and it was another fantastic trip. We camped on site 27, which backed up to the creek. Our kids loved playing in the creek and even ventured in despite the cooler temps! We also spent lots of time on the playground. It was great to visit when it was less...

Muskegon State Park

Muskegon State Park Campground Review

We traveled to Muskegon State Park in July, 2018. One of our friends told us we had to check it out because it was one of his new favorites. We were lucky enough to score a campsite in the channel campground on a cancellation so we knew it was a sign that we must visit! Our Campsite at Muskegon State Park We camped on site 101 in the second loop of the channel...

Interlochen State Park

Interlochen State Park Campground Review

We visited Interlochen State Park in August, 2016. We chose Interlochen primarily because it is close to our family who lives in Traverse City. We were a bit skeptical about what the park would be like because it was so easy to book (so. many. open. sites.). I figured something must be up. We were pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed our visit. Campsite Our...

Bay City State Park

Bay City State Park Campground Review

We visited Bay City State Park on the way home from our week-long trip to Harrisville State Park. We enjoyed our trip so much that we just weren’t ready to come home so we snagged a cancellation and spent one more night in the camper. Bay City was right on our way home so we figured it was a great way to check out another state park in our quest to visit all of them...

Aloha State Park Campground Review

This review is from Camp the Mitten member, Lisa who visited Aloha State Park in September, 2017. Campsite We camped on site 39 which was a large, shaded and waterfront. In fact, most of the sites here are large and able to accommodate bigger RVs. We enjoyed the views of Mullett Lake and were able to site by the beach right in front of our site. This site would be a...
