Quiet, clean bathrooms and showers. Some sites nicer than others, some right on the water. Good boat launch. Near Ocqueoc falls and not far from cheybogan. Camphost had lots of kids activities.

We stayed at site 6 and it was exactly what we expected! Rocky on the shore but spectacular sunrise and sunset! We even caught crawfish from the shore. You'll want to wear some water shoes anywhere at this park on the shore. Not stones I'd...More

The cabin is next to the water. Enjoyed making a fire, hiking, outdoor eating, peaceful. No bathroom close by. The lake is crystal clear. Would have loved to kayak on the lake.

Nice state park. Great for fishing & boating. Nice smaller beach area. Some sites are very un-level for campers or tents. Quiet.

Onaway state Park was nice, it was fairly quiet and peaceful even though it was booked. The ground was almost too solid for our tent stakes, but the DNR girls showed up to help us with a sledge hammer and re-bar to make holes for...More
