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...

Pine Ridge RV Campground Review

We traveled to Pine Ridge RV Campground in Birch Run, Michigan in May, 2019. We visited this campground for the first annual Michigan Grand Design Rally. The campground features MANY pull-thru sites that can accommodate even the longest RVs. It was a great destination for this rally because of the extra-long campsites and the community spaces.   Our Campsite at Pine...

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...

South Higgins Lake State Park

South Higgins Lake State Park Campground Review

We’ve visited South Higgins Lake State Park a several times in the last few years. Our first visit a quick overnight stop on our way to Young State Park. We love finding pull-thru sites to break up a trip because our kids are young and struggle with long trips on Friday nights. More on that here… The park was so beautiful that we decided we had to come...

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...

Silver Lake Resort and Campground

Silver Lake Resort and Campground Review

We traveled to Silver Lake Resort and Campground in July, 2018. We were visiting the area to attend a family wedding and decided to bring our camper at the last minute. Yes, we’re #campingobsessed! One of the owners, Don helped us book out site over the phone. He was really helpful and so nice that we knew this was the right place to stay.If you’re looking for...

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...
