Clean, nice Park. Know Poison ivy and watch where you step. Nice walking trails, and a river to canoe on. A very family orientated Park.

We just went in not having a campsite. Beautiful beach for swimming all day. Found a very nice riverside area to relax and bbq dinner. Amazing day if you appreciate the outdoors. Too bad it's always so booked up

Lake Huron certainly has power boating but, I don't believe that there is a boat launch in the park, I'm sure you could easily find a place to launch from nearby.
