This is a wonderful state park. The state has done a phenomenal job restoring the ghost town of Fayette. The buildings and exhibits are fascinating even if you are not a history buff. The ghost town is spread out along the shores of Lake Michigan. The sunsets and scenery along the shore are incredible. The campground has electric hook ups and vault toilets. There are no showers or water hookups for RV`s. The day use has a swim area. But, the beach is dune grass to within a few feet of the water, so it is very narrow. Having said that, it is still a very scenic and interesting state park.
one of the best family friendly camp grounds around, very nice showers,lake and friendly staff.camp sites to get would be site 64,65 and handicapped sites would be 48,66 and 99. we go twice a year and always a good time.
Seven Lakes is a contradiction. It has a gorgeous day use area on beautiful Big Seven Lake. After visiting the day use area, the campground was a disappointment. It is located in an open area on Sand Lake. In the land of Great Lakes, I would call Sand Lake a pond. It has a small sandy beach for camper use. There is a scattering of saplings planted throughout the campground, which do not offer much in the way of privacy. If you are in the area, it might make a decent weekend getaway. But, I would not drive out of my way to camp here.
Hands down one of the best campgrounds in Southeast Michigan. Hiking, swimming, and decent fishing. Many lakefront campsites. Nice lake to explore by canoe or kayak as it is a no wake lake. There is no camper beach but the swim beach is right across the lake at the day use area. Not a big deal as the beach is visible from the campground. Many campers just float across the lake on tubes or walk/drive over.
This campground does NOT have power, showers, flush toilets, or sanitation station. It is an equestrian campground with direct access to equestrian trails. Unless you have horses this is not the campground for you. It is an equestrian camp. There is a nice day use area approximately one mile away. The poor rating is for the average camper. However, if you have horses and you would like to spend the weekend riding and camping than this would be ideal.
This site sounded perfect when we booked it, but unfortunately we didn`t realize just how much traffic there is that comes through it. There`s a major path that goes right through the campsite and all day long you`ll have people going through. They`ll also walk right through your campsite to get to the parking lot or the road. Some in our group were hesitant to leave anything behind when we went anywhere.
Camp site is oddly located in that you have to drive past the "Service Vehicles Only" sign to get to it. The site has its own pit toilet, which is relatively clean. We brought our dog and really liked being away from the rest of the campground so we could leave him off leash without bothering others. The only traffic in front of your site is the staff vehicle which goes by on occasion.
